Shouldn't the Xotani have Grab or Improved Grab with the Jaw attack in order to utilize Swallow Whole?

Does the Alchemist Zuferian add the item bonus (usually a +2) to her ranged attack of +30 when using her bombs?

"The Engulfed creature must succeed at a DC 28 Fortitude save or become slowed 1" but any creature engulfed 'automatically' becomes Grabbed and Slowed 1 hence my confusion.

Dark Archive

The Carnivorous Crystal's Crystallize attack for Engulfed Creatures states "If the creature is already slowed, it becomes Petrified..." Engulfed creatures are automatically Grabbed and Slowed 1, so this seems redundant and would eliminate an 'extra' Save opportunity. I guess this particular Engulf would not impart the Slowed condition until the first Fort save failure?

Talamira's Resonant Wail gives crystals a +2 to attack rolls but no crystals in this area have an attack roll. Increase the DC of Anguished Shriek or Ignore?

I think the error is on Pg. 460, it seems like a holdover from the Playtest and something they missed in the final edit. However, I actually hope it is the other way around and does grant 1 hit point. Using a Hero Point should be a Heroic 'recovery' not a Heroic stabilization.

Crimsi the Ranger seems to missing a bonus to a stat and does not have a 'Hunters Edge' (so no update 1.6) But Grenek the Barbarian has no explanation for his Rage, Titan mauler ability or the Sluggish condition that comes with it. All the Goblin Heroes have great personality and backstory. Looking forward to Free RPG Day!

Alric Rahl, great work and thanks for sharing. I found myself converting RotR before I noticed this thread and wanted to share some different observations I had about it. Mostly about the glass works and Tsuto.

1. 8 Goblin Warriors needing to be weakened. If I'm not mistaken, keeping them as standard warriors would clock in at an 'extreme' encounter, not above that. 'Extreme' sure but some Goblins do use improvised weapons (-4 to attack) and the final 3 run off to Tsuto, so all in all not as 'extreme' as a straight 8.

2. Tsuto himself. In PF1 the CR of NPC with class levels was Level -1 as shown with Tsuto being Monk2/Rogue2 and his CR being a 3. My inclination was to build him in PF2 where the CR matches the Level of the character. So a CR 3 Tsuto became a Lv 3 Monk and his stats fell in line with the CR 3 NPC's in the Playtestiary. Also, the second strike in FoB incurs the -4 penalty I believe and I put his Background as Blacksmith due to the sub category of Glassworker.

3. I just reduced the value of most coin treasure by a factor of 10 and it gets pretty close to treasure tables in the Playtest.

Once again, great work on the Conversion!

I have Dungeon Module X2 'Castle Amber'on deck and was planning on taking my group through with the play test rules. The new Bestairy format is going to make for an easy conversion.

When you gain a Background Feat can you ignore the prerequisites for that feat?

Nice!

Keep up the good work!

Were there any significant changes to this Scenario when it went from 4EX to 5-14?

Projector! Shine the beautiful cartography down onto the (whiteboard) table. Use Gimp to edit the map and cover with a fog of war. Not the cheapest of methods, but WOW is it worth it. Always use the correct maps and no one sees my lame artistry skills.

Any decent trap would not have observable stimuli. That's what makes it a trap. Granting a 'free' perception check would negate the need to ever take Trap spotter. I don't think granting a second chance to spot traps would be considered RAW either.

Good Job!

Good Job!

The rule in this area is...If you dont approve (trust, enjoy, whatever) your GM's there is only one thing to do. Get behind the screen and show em how its done. Let them experience a 'good'GM and set the bar high. A good 'bedside manner' is needed to shape willing and rookie GM's. Give constructive critism at the 'end' of the scenario and always compliment the good stuff.
The suprise round, acrobatics (jump this hole), the climb skill and Combat Manuvers are common problem areas for rookie(and some veteran)GM's. Helping new GM's master these and other often used mechanics can really smooth the transistion from 'clunky rules exam' to 'smooth adventures'.

Good job, keep it up!

As a GM I use it for monster stats all the time. Beautiful, when you want to add a template, power attack or have a great reference to their special abilities.

Dark Archive

For sure in the surprise round, to see who can act and who can't against an opponent using stealth.

I've noticed an increase in GM volunteers since the 'add your star(s) to the re-roll' rule change. The plus 4 straight up saved my PC from phantasmal killer *smiles* Most people seem to have a folio now a days but I do keep a spare for the newest players.

Good job, keep up the good work!

I had this come up recently. A Magus using the Tekko-Kagi to disarm and claim the dropped item. No way. In this case the Tekko is being used as a weapon and therefore you are not able to retrieve the dropped item 'automatically'

Dark Archive

I need the deck of jousting cards (used at PaizoCon), any help?

Dark Archive

Not Andoran. The markets of Katapesh need a 'Dirty Bird'.

That "animated" GM provided an awesome first experience using my new Ring of Invisibility. I've probably retold that story ten times by now =)

Thanks for the compliment! You had great rolls to notice and disarm the trap, what can I say. How's the shop in Absalom? *smiles*

That sure is one 'animated' GM in the background. *smiles*
