Also, suppose you take the 3 XP (or whatever number it ends up being). Won't this throw off your character's WBL numbers? That extra exp doesn't seem to come with any extra cash as written.


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

I just have to ask, but is The Fall of Plaguestone going to be sanctioned for PFS play on release? If not, can we expect it soon?


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Speaking of the weather, does anyone know of any good running spots near the hotel?


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

I'll be getting in around noon on Thursday so I'd be happy to join in on anything that's going. I'm particularly looking for Starfinder games.


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Thank you!

Recently, I had to cancel my credit card and had a new one issued. I entered the new information into the site. For some reason I cannot set it as my default payment method. The site keeps setting back to the old method. I've tried deleting the old entry but it keeps coming back.

Can you please process my order and set the new card as my default payment method?

Lastly, with my current subscriptions, am i set for 2nd edition for all three hardcovers on release?

Thanks.

Is there a volunteer matrix for Pax Unplugged? I looked at the registration page but I didn't see anything.

I only asked because I didn't see one on the form.

Is there a volunteer matrix for Pax Unplugged or is it using the same one from GenCon or some other event?

Also, on exp. Lets keep it simple. People already have enough to keep track of.


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Yeah. I can't remember Paizo ever doing this before. I also don't remember this being mentioned before either.


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Funny that I preordered the Playtest books as well still no pdf but there are people in Sweden that already have theirs. I also know I'm not alone in this.


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

I selected Gen Con pick up for the Playtest, and just got an email listing a shipping and handling charge.

Did I miss something? Can this still be changed?


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Thanks. I assume to picture need to be sent to the Paizo CS email?


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Last year I preordered the Starfinder Core Rulebook which I picked up at GenCon. Admittedly, it's been sitting on the shelf most of the time since. About last week or so the binding finally broke. Is this still eligible for replacement?


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Ok, I got my confirmation email on the 8th. My order seems to be in my Sidecart, which I have never seen before for a pending order. The subscriptions page is showing my order shipping out in pieces which contradicts what was in the confirmation email.

I'm not going to throw any games. But I have a bunch of old chronicles and AP credits lying around. I'm going to use them to make an Apocalypse Oracle that will be always ranting about the end of the world.

The current crop should still be around, just out of the picture now. There is one thing we can do and it's based on a contest that Paizo ran in coordination to start the Pathfinder Comics line. The idea was to submit an idea for a character to appear in the comic. There were a few people that were selected obviously, but this was never followed up. This is something that should be revisited. How about instead of getting the brief from one of the VC's of old,how about we get the brief from a character based on a former PC? This is a way to get players even more involved with the game while acting as a reminder of what came before.


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

If it is a separate item for the pdf and the print copy then disregard.


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

I seem to have accidentally added a duplicate item to my sidecart. Could you please remove it? Thanks.


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

I'm on the fence about if I'm going to come this year. I live on the East Coast and it's becoming harder to justify flying out there for a con where I mainly hang around the hotel. This isn't Paizo's or the event's fault. I'm wondering about other things I can do while I'm out there. I'm not a big outdoors/nature person so hiking is out.What else is there to do out there outside of the con solo? If I do this again I may stay a few extra days. Any ideas?


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

First, please cancel my Starfinder AP subscription.

Also, please clear the order out of my Sidecart.

Thank you.


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

It looks like a second copy of the Dead Suns AP may have been added to my order. It's listed in my Sidecart for some reason as well as listed under other items.


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Alright, it should be good. It should be noted that it is not easy to change a billing address. I had to rip everything out and start over.


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

I think this one may have slipped through the cracks.


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Be careful what you wish for. I remember in the Rifts RPG there was a gang that was notorious for doing this.


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Sorry, but is this order still on hold?


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

This reminds me of a dilemma I'm having right now. I'm working on a Human Mystic with the Mindbreaker connection. I'm envisioning something like a psionic warrior who breaks his enemy's will with mental attacks and then wades in for the kill.

I have two alternatives:
-Pick up Heavy Armor Proficiency and Heavy Melee Weapons (whichever is the upgrade for Basic).
-Or dip Soldier.


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Thanks to both of you.


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Ok, I think I may have messed up. I started the subscription but selected to start on part two instead of one. Will you have to cancel it so I can go in again and fix it?


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

I should have done this before GenCon, but go ahead and add the Starfinder AP to my subscriptions starting with volume one. Hopefully this can make it in before the order is fully processed. Given that I have an active order I don't know if adding anything would update in the current order. Thanks.


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

I don't think I have to state here that GenCon is a big deal. In the future, maybe we can have one forum to discuss everything to do with GenCon. We have one for PaizoCon, why not GenCon?


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Thank you!


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

I preordered the Starfinder Core Rulebook and selected to have it picked up at GenCon. The question I have is in regards to the PDF. Does the preorder include the free PDF? I recently did start the Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscription but I don't know if that counts towards it being so late in the process. Am I too late for that even though the order hasn't gone through? I marked the sub down to start with Alien Archive but I guess it can be changed to start with the Core book. If that's the issue please change my subscription (I ask because of the timing of the order, I don't want to miss the chance).

Also, I would like all of my banked Paizo Gift Certificates applied to this order.

Thank you.

Last year I got charged about $100 dollars for parking I never used. This year I prepaid $130 that somehow didn't get reflected in the final balance. The front desk stated that they have no record of the transaction. There's something funny going on here.


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

I'm really sorry but I'm gonna have to pull out of this. My plane got in stupid late last night. Morning session has wiped me out.


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

I'm game for this as well. I've played most of them except for 7-24, 7-27, 8-03, 8-14, and 8-17. I might we willing to burn some GM stars if needed because at this rate this year's replays are going to go to waste.

On a site note: is anyone interested in doing CORE?


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

I'm Walt, and I'm coming out from the DC area. As far as I know I'll be the only one. This will be my third PaizoCon. For those who remember me (not counting on it), I've lost almost 100 pounds since last year.


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

I have quite a few characters I can bring

-Human Psychic (Self Perfection) level 7- Focuses a lot on telepathic/divination abilities, hits hard with Mind Thrust and is also good with skills (hign int + Amateur Investigator)

-Aasimar Monk of the Iron Mountain/Flowing Monk 5-He's like a hunk of ultra sharp cheddar. He's designed to take on multiple adversaries at once. Damage isn't that great.

-Human Slayer 3- She wears heavy armor with a shield and bastard sword. Her design is a lot like a fighter, except that she fights dirty with Improved Feint and maybe Improved Dirty Trick later. She may not yet be ready to go though.

-Human Bloodrager (Air Elemental Bloodline/Steelblood) - 6 This guy wears heavy armor and wields an adamantine earthbreaker. He also has Improved Sunder. He hits like a damn truck.

-Elf Slayer (Sniper) 6 - Used the Forest Stalker NPC in the Core Rulebook as a guide, except he's a slayer instead of being a ranger

-I also have CORE characters if anyone wants a CORE table. I have a level 5 cleric and a level 7 wizard. Otherwise I'm heavily leaning towards the psychic.

I'm trying to sign up for #7-27: Beyond the Azlant Ridge (GM Author edition). It shows 5 attendees. When I sign up it doesn't change or show up on my schedule.

That book was the first thing I thought of when I first read about this. I just hope the parallel you suggested doesn't come to pass...

All of this is just an elaborate plot to make me miss The Expanse.

I'm lucky I can DVR it.

The character idea sounds interesting. I always have more ideas just gathering dust than I know what to do with? Is that normal?


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

I'll admit. The title of this thread is a little off but I couldn't think of anything better at the time. There seems to be a lot of negativity here around the idea. Despite what some of you may be thinking, I am not suggesting an AP where the PCs sit around and play house. It seems a lot of people just want to play murderhobos, in such a case you might as well be playing WoW.

One pattern I have noticed in the APs is that at the low levels there is a lot more roleplaying and the pace seems to be a lot slower. As time goes on, the RP declines and the pace quickens. I can understand the quickening a bit as the plot is reaching it's climax. There is no excuse for the decline in RP.

What I am suggestion is some awareness of exactly where the PCs live and what is going on there. In general there needs to be a bit of a tighter focus on RP at the high end, all of the high level APs I've played were all combat and dungeon crawls. Sure, it feels good to beat the bad guy, but why even bother if you have no connection to the world you're saving.

Kingmaker was the only AP to really come close to touching this idea. Maybe it's time for another sandbox AP. Here's an idea, how about actually using the rules in Ultimate Campaigns for something other than a new source for traits. There are ideas for building homes and businesses that I really haven't seen being used anywhere. This isn't the main focus for the AP but it something that runs in the background that ties the characters to the setting.

There seems to be some highjinks with the reservations website. I put in a reservation of Thursday to Monday and showed nothing until I unchecked the box and told it to show all. Then I saw a room for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The odd thing is that I called and was able to get the Thursday room that wasn't on the site for the con rate.

Now I'm on hold with CS. I happened to look at last years bill and noticed that they charged me for valet parking for every day of my stay. That's about $120 I'm trying to get back. I'm just mentioning this as a FYI.

The only potential issue I see is that this may split the community even further. The last time I saw this was for Core Campaign which by my observation has fallen flat on it's face.

Will there be any preview content for this at PaizoCon? I'm still on the fence about coming this year.

Something I have noticed in all of the APs out there is that they all seem to involve some world ending evil. An evil that must be fought or the world as we know it will end. What about an AP where the stakes aren't as high. What about an AP where you are actually connected to the circumstances of your success or your failure? In the Ultimate Campaigns book there are a lot of options for relationships, creating businesses, creating kingdoms; but seldom do we see these options used except for the Kingmaker campaign. What about an AP that keeps things local? What about a campaign that makes you care about the people you are saving aside from being Xp or gold rewards?

This is just a few random thoughts. Maybe the idea of the Adventure Path needs an overhaul.

Open replay for specials would be a great idea IMO. Specials tend to generate a lot of excitement in the community and are often centerpieces of conventions and gamedays.

I would put two restrictions on it:

-Use the "one chronicle per character" rule to prevent abuse. Specials aren't that common and don't come up often, hence the name. At least where I am when the topic of specials comes up the first question is "Has this been played nearby recently?" We had a gameday recently and didn't do a special because we couldn't determine one that a large part of our player base hadn't played.

-Keep the most recent specials away from replayability until next season so that more people have the chance to play that don't get as many opportunities. I also can understand recent specials requiring RVC approval.

One thing I would like to add, there need to be some kind of better support for Core and specials. Sometimes mustering on site makes it difficult to coordinate

Of course you all realize that we might as well have just cast a Summon Drogon spell.

Go ahead and apply the discount. I also have a bunch of credits from gift certificates, go ahead and apply all of them. Thank you.


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

I recently placed an order but there was no place to apply the promotional code for the holiday promotion. Could I please apply this discount to this order get a updated invoice on my order? Thank you.


Pathfinder Companion, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

This was something I noticed at 2016. No commemorative items of any kind. My personal theory is that this con may not justify it from a pure profit standpoint. The main con for Paizo seems to not surprisingly, be GenCon.

Only Core races are permitted in the Core campaign.
