Considering that Paizo's footprint at GenCon2022 was much smaller this doesn't surprise me. I do not see this as a decision that a healthy company makes.

Farewell Lisa,and we thank you.


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

Not going to spoil it, but the end battle is one of the most annoying that I've ever seen in society play.

I just played this. It's a great concept with poor execution.

Teams aren't given enough prep time. Even when you get successes you get useless information.

If I could review it I would give it 3/5 stars. At least it's not as bad as Serpent's Ire.

This is disgusting, and disappointing. Basically, you had to have signed up two years ago to get tickets this year.


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

My order is also missing (36735369) the payment method was initially declined. I have updated it but no shipping notice yet.


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

No changes to make except for payment method. Had to get a new credit card. Thanks.

So they fired their well regarded CS manager right before GenCon. I guess Paizo is lucky that they skipped out of the live event. This is bad, as in Blizzard bad. Paizo needs to put out something before this gets out of hand. I have a few subs myself and right now my finger is on the trigger.

5/5

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

Any update on this? I'm also interested.

I'm not going to pull punches. I'm not just unhappy with this, I am disgusted with it. After months of isolation, this was supposed to be the light at the end of the tunnel. At this rate it's "Rocks fall people die."

I'm sick of the Zoom games and the VTTs. Sadly, most of the official games will be done on Roll20. It's a terrible clunky platform that you have to create custom macros to do mind numbingly stupid things like roll dice (whoever heard about that in a RPG right?). Or as of a few months ago couldn't get a grip on an easy way to import a character into the system using XML or HTML (or is HeroLab just wasting it's time with that one?)

And lastly, thanks for letting us know. Now if we're gonna skip this year we're gonna have to wrestle with them to roll it over or get a refund. Who knows? Maybe I'll go this year and maybe find a different game.


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

I was hoping we could get some wild west style six-shooters for this. Flintlocks are just plain boring.


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

I'm wondering why this even happened. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against Savage Worlds. I backed both of the Kickstarters for Savage Rifts.

The reason for Savage Rifts was obvious to me. Palladium is great at coming up with content, settings, worlds, ideas. The problem is that regardless of what setting we're talking about, the rules system is a hot mess. Savage Rifts solved this problem by finally making sense out of the chaos of a hodge-podge rules system that needs a ton of house rules to even function.

Pathfinder, regardless of edition just doesn't need this.


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

I recently moved and tried changing my billing/shipping address. It appears my changes didn't go through because my last order got declined. The billing information should now be correct. Can you please run the transaction again? Thanks.

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

I know this isn't Paizo's fault, but someone needs to get some engineers from Hero Lab Online and Roll20 in the same room.

The idea that you can't import a character in HTML format into Roll20 is a major obstacle to the use to the platform.

Oracles sound a little strange and weak near as I can tell. It's disappointing as the Life Oracle was one of my favorite healers in PF1. I hope reading the final go around the Life Oracle can still be a premier healer, but it sure doesn't look like it.

I love Life Oracles so much I leveled two in PF1. In the current case though they just aren't worth it. They needed more spell slots like Clerics (in the case of heals) or just more slots period (like the sorcerer).

When I make a healer for PF2 it's likely going to be a Angelic Sorcerer. Life Oracle is a sad waste of time.

This actually has me a little worried. The last time I remember Paizo offering this was during the later part of the lifetime of PF1. But PF2 has only been out for one year and now this bundle is pretty much all of their PF2 product line.

Is this a sign that PF2 may not be doing as well as we hoped? I'm not asking this to disparage Paizo. With what is going on with Covid19 it's not exactly a good time for business in general.


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

While I like the idea of an online PaizoCon, I'm wondering about a couple of things:

-What about non-gaming events like panels and Tim Schneider's aforementioned banquet stream?

-There are multiple platforms for online play. For someone like me who has no experience with it can be a bit of a learning curve. Why so many?

The Oracle was probably my favorite class in PF1. Looking at the new class as presented, I just don't see the point.

There are no weapon or armor skills beyond simple weapons unless you're a battle oracle. The revelations seem to be designed to allow greater impact on the way you play as opposed to the original, but take out any kind of choice. Spell Repertoire seems to be saying "Hey we didn't want to create another damn chart."

My biggest problem are the spell slots. They are spontaneous casters that are given the same number of spells as prepared casters. Why play this class when you get much better performance out of a divine sorcerer without having to worry about revelations?

In PF1 the Life Oracle could easily meet or even surpass a healing cleric. Now it's the other way around.

Are Oracles using domains now?

I know this is gonna sound like I'm rambling on but here goes.

While I agree that running in Campaign Mode is the most ideal way to run modules, I don't agree with the rest of it.

One level of experience for three levels of content? I know this is the way AP's roll but modules are a different experience with different levels of commitment and expectations.

Putting a 3-4 tier on a module marked as an introduction is confusing.

The rules sheet also seems to be assuming that everyone starting a 3 part adventure that will all finish it. This looks like a solid 16 hours to finish (2 days) as opposed to running 3 scenarios for the same XP that would take 12. What happens if someone only makes one session? Nothing about this is shown in the rules sheet.

This feels like it was thrown together at the last minute. This is after the adventure being out for three months. This should be sent back for revision.

I am in the middle or running this right now. I'm dreading telling my friends that they are only going to get one instead of three for this.

I spent a good bit of money getting maps printed for this because SURPRISE..the flip mat is only good for part three. I had planned to run this a second time. At this rate I won't waste my time with it.

5/5

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

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!


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

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.

5/5

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

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.

5/5

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

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?
