Oh, my. I'm guessing we're going to have some adventures coming out that are part of the God Rain story. I'm up for it!

Until such time as the higher level characters are available, can we...

A. Use the CRB/APG versions?

B. Generate the higher level versions of Remaster Iconics using approved tools like Hero Lab Online?

C. Can we still just use the older versions and use the conversion guides for at-the-table updating?

Also, at what point can we no longer use the older pregens? I'm presuming if they are for a class in Core Rulebook or Advanced Players that had NOT been Remastered, we would use the older characters with modifications based on the conversion guide.

Thanks!

Well, that's worth a look. A very lovely looking piece of craftsmanship. I always enjoy seeing things that bridge that gap between fully immersive role-playing and sitting around a table.

Also, I really hope this is not the same as the item that is handed out as the Wayfinder award to a VERY select few individuals. From what I can remember of the one time I got to see one, I'm fairly sure this is not the same model. I'm just voicing my concern is all, and I expect to have that concern quickly resolved.

Now, over to the Kickstarter page, completely sidetracking what I came to the website to do. LOL!!

Is any of this sanctioned for PFS or SFS play? Or is this just home-campaign stuff? I don't have much experience with Infinite yet, so please forgive if this has been covered elsewhere.

Based on the map selection, I'm wondering if we'll be visiting a certain Goblin King. Hmm.....

Liberty's Edge

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Maps, Rulebook, Starfinder Maps Subscriber

I cant wait to see how they get the metal and wood to fold. Will there be hinges? Or maybe magnets if it's carbon steel and Iron wood. :-) LOL!

These will go well with my other planar maps.

Waitaminute! Are these City Maps? The left half of the cover image certainly looks like a city rather than a typical tactical map. Hmmmm.... I'll just have to wait until I get this in my December subscription shipment.

Some designers from Paizo have even encouraged people NOT to pick up these books if said people were on the fence about it. Paizo is putting in a way for Rulebook subscribers to skip out on the Remaster book releases, and as always, they encourage folks to check out any changes on Archives of Nethys. They know this isn't a financially safe move. But it was never about making tons of money to begin with.

They said it wasn't going to be mandatory on release until they announced that it's mandatory on release.

From the Paizo Blog post, Pathfinder Society and the Remaster, "Game Rules 1. Players and GMs must use the remastered rules of the game immediately where possible." Alex later clarified that "Immediately" means the release date, not immediately. Also "Beginning on November 15, 2023, no new characters may be created using the class chassis printed in the Core Rulebook if the class has been reprinted in the Player Core."

I do not like the way that PF2.5 has been handled so far. Yes, there are lots of exceptions, allowances, etc. But, I'm pretty sure it was Jason Buhlman that admitted in one of the early videos about the remaster that many of these changes were supposed to be in 2E at release, but they wanted the legacy players to buy in and they didn't think enough would come over if they cut out things like alignment and spell schools. Then we were told that the rules in the remaster won't be mandatory on day 1. See my statement above.

Despite how I feel about the surroundings of the release, I'm going to give it a fair appraisal once my books come in.

I need to find more of these recipes and get them to my wife. She's got an amazing database of historical drinks, and I'm sure she'd love to add Golarion's beverages to it. And, of course, her Krupnick recipe.

Are there plans for a Golarion Recipe book?

I too am looking forward to running this scenario, the premise is very interesting. Many of my players have also expressed excitement for it as well.

How will character sheet interaction work? Will this be like Foundry? Or will we be able to use our Hero Lab characters with our Hero Forge minis and roll Norse Foundry virtual dice? I'd be all in if that's the case.

Otherwise, I'm not sure. I'm willing to give it a test drive though.

My main concern is the there are so many other virtual sources and table tops out there already. How will this one beat, or incorporate, what we're already invested in?

In my personal opinion, as a 5 Glyph GM, this should have the Glyph tag. There are many moving parts and a lot for a GM to keep track of. This scenario was much more difficult to GM than others that have the Glyph tag.

While it was a well-written scenario, and a lot of fun to run, it is challenging. GMs, make sure you have ample time to prep this one.

Just my pair of coppers.

Liberty's Edge

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Maps, Rulebook, Starfinder Maps Subscriber

Overall, the scenario seems like it's going to be fun to GM, and I'm sure my players will enjoy playing it. And it uses maps that we don't see much anymore. I'm looking forward to Friday!

Was there supposed to be artwork for a specific NPC?

Spoiler:
Tekawenda is on the council AND featured heavily in the second info check. She seems pretty important. So I'm curious as to why we got new artwork for Rahaksenwe, a recurring NPC, new art for a sidekick NPC, but no art for one of the council members that you're supposed to influence.
That seems like an odd choice.

BTW, How do I get my scenarios at midnight? I had to wait until I got the email this afternoon.

It sounds a lot more like 2.1

2.1 was the first errata to CRB. 2.2 the second, etc. So, yeah this IS 2.5.

I'm just starting to watch the replay of the stream, and I'll hold additional comments until after that, except this one:

I've played/run RPGs without alignment. I don't like them. As teenage boys playing fantasy games where there is no guideline as to how your character's morality would actually influence their actions makes it easy for a "Good" character to slaughter baby deer, just because. You, as the GM, cannot tell them it's against their character's morality, because the player will find ways to justify otherwise abhorrent actions. If Alignment becomes an "Optional" aspect, it will always be used at my table. That's my pair of coppers, do with them as you wish.

I think the actual minis look pretty decent. I bought the set a while back and they've had almost all positive feedback from players. It also helps to hand a new player a mini of the pregen character they are playing, as it helps with the immersion. I love them, honestly, and am planning on picking up a second box at Gencon.

I don't play much for SF anymore, but I WILL get this book. Even if for no other reason than Mike and Ivis. Such awesome folks and great writers. The others are great writers and contributors too, but Mike and Ivis are locals and friends. I'm so glad for them and love their work.

I carry all of my rulebooks in a red/black toolbox. It looks great when I open it and there's 9 beautiful red leather books all together. Guess I'm also going PDF only on this one. It's a shame, really, because I much prefer flipping pages to rolling screens.

I'm also waiting for an answer as to why this change was chosen.

Thanks Aaron for communicating this with us.

My only critique of this would be looking at the TPK board and seeing not a single woman or person of colour. This is a major trend in this hobby, and possible on of the hobby’s biggest issues/losses.

Oddly, when I looked at that page, I found this under one of the photos of someone whom I am not assuming their chosen gender. "JAMES BECK

Is it more important to have great creators based on their skin pigmentation and gender, or the content of their creations? Personally, I don't care what someone looks like or where they are on the gender spectrum. If I'm here for great gaming content, THAT is all that matters to me.

Go ahead, flag my post. Someone had to say it.

When I make tokens for my VTT sessions, I usually have multiple colors of rings for multiples of monsters. Example, four skeletons would have a red, blue, yellow, and green ring to make designation easier. Any chance there might be some way I can do that with these? Or have some sort of coloring designation that I'm not aware of as I have barely begun to use Foundry?

Thanks!

Please tell me there will be cards for these. I love using item cards for everything! I have made hundreds myself, but official ones are so much nicer than half a 3x5 index card.

I too would LOVE to see this done with a Second Edition AP, like Outlaws of Alkenstar or Age of Ashes. But, if we're resurrecting 1E APs, my vote is for Wrath of the Righteous. I've been waiting for Mythic to get to 2E, and that would be a great way to introduce it. Just my pair of coppers now, but if you do it, I'll gladly lay down a lot of gold for it. I'd even be willing to join a Playtest if you want a 5G GM. Just sayin.

Is Calamity the name of the dagger in the Multi-Table Special that had 4 variations?

BTW, I would love to know if scenarios have certain callbacks. Maybe a mention of it in the VO Discord channel? Because I would love to post old scenarios that lead into new ones. Even if I have to adapt them to PF2 and run them un-sanctioned. Just sayin.

Congrats to all the other award and 5-rank achievers! Especially Kristin Bollerman, my all-time favorite VC, GM, player, my wife, and best friend :-). It was a fun and grueling journey for me, and I'm sure it was for all of you as well. Congratulations, and well done.

I also want to send a pre-emptive congrats to Ivis Flannagan who has been at the forefront of 2E since Playtest and has been an inspiration to me.

Thank you Alex, Heather, and all of the staff and volunteers who made our Gencon experience so awesome! It's great to be back in person.

I'm anxious for PFS2 Season of Boundless Wonder! Can't wait! Are we going to get letters from Zarta?

As long as we still get art for each creature, I'm ok. I remember being very excited that I finally had an image for Sod Hounds when the Bestiary Pawns pdf released.

Will the battle cards still be a thing?

And will Legacy Subscribers to the Adventure Path still get the Advantage discount?

As I'm prepping this scenario I've got to say I'm very excited to run it. The plot is well thought out, there's plenty of action, opportunities for role-play, and great skill checks. A very well-rounded adventure indeed! And who doesn't look forward to using the Red-Light District Flip-Mat?

The one thing that bugs me is the new art for Lady Glorianna Morilla. I understand that the characters from 1st edition are being redrawn, reimagined, etc. But this one, I'm not liking. Just my pair of coppers, but I plan on using the old art I have in my presentations.

However, the rest of the scenario is FANTASTIC! From the first encounter's structure to the last encounter's monsters. I plan to do a full review after I run it this weekend and see how my players tear into it. I'm looking forward to running more of Brent's scenarios.

Should we expect this one to get pushed back to a Gencon premiere? The scenarios that were supposed to release a few days before Paizocon were pushed back so they could have their premiere at Paizocon. I'm just wondering if this one is going to get similar treatment since the listed street date is 1 week before the con.

I'd be ok with that, honestly. I actually like the idea of having scenarios premiere at major cons.

Just my pair of coppers.

Liberty's Edge

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Maps, Rulebook, Starfinder Maps Subscriber

The Flip-Mat Classics: Pathfinder Lodge may have been a decent fit here, except that this is a NEW lodge. Hence, new map. I'm guessing.

I usually enjoy the custom maps that come in the scenarios, as some of them are really interesting. Some of them I could use again in home games and one- offs. But they are difficult to resize properly onto Roll20 when they have partial squares on 3 sides. The art looks great! And I can easily pick out which room things happened in during Foundation's Price. It's very cool.

I also agree with Sliska Zafir, we need more repeatables. I'd personally like to see replays offered as ACP purchases.

That's my pair of coppers.

Any chance we might be able to see Half Giants in PF2E? I've had a few players asking because they have certain characters they want to build that would be best as Large sized humanoids.

If there's another way to accomplish this, or any word on a future release, please let me know. They'll be excited. I'd also be excited to see Dragonkin and Uplifted Bears now that we've had the Starfinder crossover.

I'm also curious about non-human halfsies, and adding additional options for the other half. Like Dwarven half gnome.

Thanks!

One thing I've heard from players and would like to see my self, is some kind of designation for which arc each of these scenarios is part of. Example, this could be "Starting in Sedeq pt1: Foundation's Price" This makes it easier to know what arc you are in without re-reading each scenario description every time you look.

Titles like this have been used a lot in the past, and considering the number of linked scenarios this season, it would make it easier for players and GMs to track which arc they are in or what they are looking for.

If others in the community has been complaining about the length of the titles, I haven't seen it. But, I have heard from a number of my players that they would prefer better titling.

Just my pair of coppers. Others can throw in theirs.

Any word on when the expected street date will be? I'd love to plan an Agents of Edgewatch campaign after receiving this. Provided I can get it approved by the budget officer.

Then again, she and our local player base have been asking for more content. So, it might, MIGHT, be possible. And Christmas is coming.

I'm with Griffonbait, I really like having the boxes. It's a shame they're getting cut. I guess I'll have to put some extra time in at the metal shop I work at and make my own boxes. Forget cardboard, I'm going aluminum.

Just my pair of coppers; our groups barely have enough table space for standard flip-mats surrounded by character sheets, dice trays, spell cards, dinner,etc. This is going to be double the standard flip-mat, much like the map in the One Shot Head Shot The Rot that I just drew on 2 basics. I'm already worried how I'm going to fit that on the table with afore mentioned accoutrements. I may skip in this one even though it looks really nice and the thought of it is very intriguing.

Real quick detail I just thought of: The skills listed to disable the runes in the last section; can any of the skills listed be used for any of the runes? Or are they in the listed order appropriate for the sequence? Acrobatics for the "Noon" rune, Arcana for the next one clockwise, etc.

I'm thinking any on any, but I figured I'd ask the smart people.

Pathfinder Society Quest #6: Archaeology in Aspenthar. Granted, I don't remember much from when I ran the quest over a year ago, so it might not be related. But, hey, you never know until you play or run it. Still, it sounds like fun!
