Azlanti Diamond anyone?

Okay, I'm certain I will not be able to afford any of this but the idea alone is terrific.


we are debating whether the Grinning Pixie flies the flag of the Pathfinder Society, Absalom or non at all.
Usually a ship flies the flag of the nation it hails from. In this case this would be Absalom since the society has it's headquarter there. I personaly think that it would NOT fly the glyph of the open road since this would elevate the society into some kind of government status.

I really would like to have a bit more input form different people.

Thanks, teriffic!


I tried to find some information about the red water in Bloodcove but either I'm blind or I do not have the right books.

Why does Jim have a plushie of the german company Ulisses on his shoulder?

If I recall correctly they are the official German language translators for Pathfinder. I think he mentioned in a post awhile back they sent him the custom plush as a gift.

Edit: I was correct

I did know the first part (I'm the admin for THE german pathfinder fanbloig) didn't know the second part (shame on me).

The “Strength of Thousands” Adventure Path takes place at the Magaambya academy in the Mwangi Expanse and the Mwangi Expanse sourcebook has some more background lore about the students and their activities. One rather interesting part is a sidebar about “study groups” that are basically alcohol samplings. One rather favorite drink is “Jatembe Juice” made from dates and ginger and so I had to recreate it. In this video I show how it is made:

It gives no real guidance about when the downtime activities should happen except between and among the stuff listed in that chapter which can happen at different times.

It's intentionally vague so that you can stretch or compress time.

Personally, I'm planning everything out on a Golarion calendar so that I can definitively say what day it is, how many dorm-room game nights have happened, who's birthday it might be, and when bonus content I added in happens canonically in my game.

For me it's working out like so:
4721 Arodus 4th-10th: Chapter 1
4721 Arodus 11th to 4722 Erastus 28th: Chapter 2
4722 Erastus 29th-31st: Chapter 3

Quizzes or Exams every month, with 4 total Exams correlating to completion of a downtime study period. Quizzes are basically only roleplay opportunities.

Actually that doesn't fit with the chapter about Nantambu in the Mwangi Expanse book.

The Adventure starts in the rainy season which should be from 20. Kuthona 4720 to 19. Pharasm 4721.
I'm still trying to figure out the seasons and the calendar.


I'm trying to geht the calendar in the chapter about Nantambu (Page 235) aligned with what I can find elsewhere.

It says that the first day is the spring equinox, which would be 20. Pharast in 4721.

Calender

So is the 20. Pharast equal to the added first day of the year that is mentioned in this sentence?
"These feast days are not part of any month, and an extra day is added at the new year." ?

If that is the case the 21. Pharast would be the feast day dedicated to Old-Mage Jatembe and ther 27. Pharast would be the feast day dedicated to venerating the ancestors. 28. Pharast would be the first day of the first month of the new year?


Anybody here has any idea how students form other parts of Golarion would have traveled to Nantambu? Especially Avistan or Absalom?

Any ideas or recomendations on running the AP with milestone advancements rather then handing out XP?

I would like to write a story for a german fanzine. The fanzine is available free of charge as a PDF but there is also a printed version (with the exact same content) for which there is a charge.

Is that possible under the community use guideline?

@gisher
Thanks a lot for this detailed walk through, now it makes sense to me.
Even though that seemed like a very specialized usage I can't find any other way to get to the same result.

Consider the Wizard I was describing before. Because Wizards don't advance all Simple Weapons, they would never become Expert in their Elven Curve Blade even though they would become Expert with daggers, staves, etc. at level 11.

By taking Unconventional Expertise they would become Expert with the Elven Curve Blade at level 13. (It's a little later than desirable, but better then never.) That's the reason for the feat.

I did understand that, but to take Unconventional Expertise they have to take Unconventional Weaponry first which would make no sense for them at all bevor also taking Unconventional Expertise.

With Unconventional Weaponry they would get NOT proficiency in the weapon they choose.

Gisher wrote:


Similarly Rogues, which only advance some Martial Weapons, can use this feat to get Master proficiency with an Advanced Weapon that they chose with Unconventional Weaponry. (They'd have to become Trained in all Martial Weapons first, of course.)

Unconventional Expertise is for the classes with oddball Weapon Proficiency advancements.

But in those cases the Unconventional Weaponry doesn't make sense on it's own.

Expertise is likewise useful for other classes that only get specific proficiency, like Rogues who only get a select number of martial weapons or Wizards who never even get simple weapon proficiency (for some stupid reason) and need Expertise even for weapons they treat as simple.

Just startet to research that myself. For a wizard the

Unconventional Weaponry wouldn't make any sense since he doesn't get any proficiency in that weapon because of his lack of proficiency in simple weapons. So it wouldn't make sense for him to take Unconventional Expertise either.

Welcome.
That the title was changed from "Human Resources" - which I personaly find a little disrespectuful - is a very good sign.

What was strange for a moment is the fact that there is another Maggie Gallagher out there who seems to be the opposite of the one mentioned here.

Paizo Welcomes Maggie Gallagher As Director Of People And Culture

This sounds great. Alone the fact that they moved on from the rather awfull "human resources" title speaks volumes.

But it is rather unfortunate that there is another Maggie Gallagher out there who seems to be the opposite from this one.


Thanks a lot for all these answers. That really clears up some things.

So far it is not really that hard to stop someone from casting but it gets harder to stop someone from sustaining a spell once it is cast.

Sustaining doesn't get the manipulate traits from components and so you can do that even if you grabbed of constrained.

Is there a problem with the shipping of this book to other (overseas) retailers? I've been looking to buy this book ever since it came out but no European sellers seem to be carrying it. Ordering from Paizo directly means having to pay $40 in shipping to Europe, so I'd like to buy from local stores.

There are some:

- Attack of opportunity ( On critical Hit )
- Fighter Disruptive Stance ( On Hit )

But only in combination. Very few spells trigger an AoO by themself.

Everything else seems pretty specialized.


Is there any way to disrupt a spell or stopping the caster from sustaining it besides the feat Counterspell?


Can anybody tell be a bit more about the boardgame „Pathfinder Level 20“ from GaleForce 9?

I can find 2 sources and that‘s it:

Thanks.

I allready have that but unfortunaltly it is as detailed as the one in several books like the one in the Extincion Curse Players guide.

Extinction Curse has a good map. Dunno if it's as detailed as you would want.

Either I'm blind (which is entierly possible) but I cannot find a map of the whole isle in there. There are some maps of the Kortos mounts, but that's it.

Just saw that the PDFs will be available on wednesday, so my bad.


I bought Absalom and Monsters of Myth during the sales glitch and it vanished from the downloads shortly thereafter (which is absolutely fine) but it still isn't showing and now I was wondering if I do get a refund, if I have to somehow pay the difference or if the download will appear again.

And another question: Will the Map of the Starstone isle contain more detail? Will it be availale elsewhere?

Okay, the pre-seller is live but unfortunatly the shipping costs to Germany are really high.
Will there be a chance that the Gold Edition will also be available via more normal channels?

I'm still a bit unsure about the placement and usage of the flumes and the wheel in Otari.

There is one flume that leads from the north to the wheel (and therefore to the mill) which I suppose is for transporting logs from the lumbercamps to the mill. The logs basically fall down there into the osprey river with the water.

The giant wheel is not powered by this flume but rather by the river itself and has a roughly east/west orientation. It powers the swas ant a treadmill that lifts logs into the loading flume that runs from the mill to the harbour.

It that basically how it works or did I get something wrong?

Hi

I'm still a bit unsure about the function of the giant wheel.

There is the flume north of the wheel which seems so not only carry water but also logs and then there is the wheel with the mill and beyond that farther south the loading flume that leads to the harbor. It that right?

The northern part of the flume transports logs from the camps to the mill and the wheel itself is powerd by the osprey river and NOT be the northern flume?

Good for you.

I've spend more than a thousand euro's already and I'm not persuaded by flashy lick of paint to spend hundreds more for stuff I ALREADY own. This is a sentiment I've seen shared on all spaces I've visited, so I'm not the only one feeling like this.

And viemexis is not the only one that not only appreciates the basic content that is delivered but also the form, ease of use and mobility of the service offered.

It is kind of the never ending battle between Linux and Windows and frankly I think both have their merits.

Since there are representatives of Paizo AND Demiplane on here I wanted to touch on something that really would help making Nexus even more interesting.

Translations:

If there was one shop where I have my books and charaters in both englisch and german (or french, or any other language Pathfinder is offered in) it would greatly help Gamemasters to manage their games. In my groups players use both languages and it is sometimes hard to find the right feats or talents. If I had one place where I could search for both and switch between languages it would be very helpfull.

I'm certain that is not something with a very high priority, but as a software developer myself I know it is best to know such requests beforehand so you can plan accordingly.


I had the chance to play a prototype at Spiel in Essen and I liked it quite a lot.

A short report (in german) can be found on my Pathfinder2 Fanblog: https://pathfinder2.de/2021/10/18/pathfinder-arena-erstes-spiel/


Who would be the right person to ask what that sword that Aroden is carrying here is?


When I use ranged weapons the precious materials should be used on the Ammo rather then the weapon itself, ist that correct?

So if I attack a demon with a bow the arrows should be made of cold iron and not the bow.


Is there any way a dead cleric of Pharasma could come back to live and still be a cleric of Pharasma?

(Yes it basically is a GM decision but I would like to know your take on this.)


I'm still not entirely sure what to do, but I'm really grateful for the input here. Thanks a lot you all.

Yes, but still after the World Guide and the break down of the world in the 10 regions.

As I said, perhaps I assumed something wrong or there was changed something on the way, just curious.
