Whenever I bought my vinyl maps from Chessex, I always purchased the double-sided mats that had squares on one side, and hexes on the other. I always asked myself, though, "When am I ever really going to use hex-based miniatures for gaming?"
Well, apparently, Paizo just answered my question. Looking forward to playing Starfinder in the next year!!!
As Paizo appears to be the English distribution company for the RPG, will you be selling a PDF of the rules through the Paizo website?
If so, will my Pathfinder AP Subscription discount apply to PDFs for this? No sure if I want to commit to a hardback, but I'm curious enough to drop some cash on a PDF.

The APG characters are currently under construction. Once they're all spruced up by our Organized Play team, they'll be added to the package and an email will be sent out alerting people of the update :)
I'm assuming that Seltyiel (The Iconic Magus) is also receiving the "sprucing" treatment, as well.
Any idea how soon we'll see these Pregens for PFS in the future?
From the "Cheliax: The Infernal Empire" Product Description wrote:
A perfect supplement to the Hell’s Rebels and Hell’s Vengeance Adventure Paths.
So, for clarification, there will be a very near future Adventure Path named "Hell's Vengeance" following the release of the "Hell's Rebels" Adventure Path?
I thought about this some and came up with a few ideas.
First, I would suggest that Drow birthrates are much higher than those of their surface kin. With their hedonistic tendancies and need to replenish their numbers amongst their families that are murdered and killed in conflict, families would take all measures (magical and mundane) to ensure the fertility of their women and that copulation resulted in pregancies as often as possible.
Second, if you review several pieces of fiction about the Drow Noble Houses (most of them from the Forgotten Realms line), open warfare between houses occur occasionally but often mostly involves warrior slaves of other races (orcs, goblins, giants, humans, dwarves, surface elves, gnomes, etc.) that are led by a smaller group of powerful drow warriors. Most of the casualties are slaves, and not the nobles themselves.

In the works, almost definitely. Soon, depends on your definition, honestly with the GenCon and PaizoCon UK looming it is doubtful they will be sanctioned before early to mid-August. (GenCon sees the release of a lot of content all at once and is a month earlier this year than in previous years). At least this is the best guess I've seen floating around (on multiple threads asking the same)
Yeah, I have a general idea of how much prep goes into getting ready for a big convention like GenCon, so I completely understand why this has probably been tabled for now. Just interested in getting a general idea on how soon this material will be introduced to the campaign.
In the works, likely not to happen until after GenCon,especially with Mike needing to step down.
Yeah, it seriously sucks that Mike Brock is stepping down.
I had the pleasure of getting to know Mike while he was the V.C. of Georgia before he took his position with Paizo as Campaign Coordinator. He's a great guy and an amazing RPG player. He always brought a ton of energy to the games he ran, and I've only been more impressed with his dedication and creativity to the campaign as the years have gone by.
We may get another Campaign Coordinator, but I don't know if we'll ever see someone like Mike Brock as the Campaign Coordinator of PFS.
The Pathfinder Society Organized Gaming Community has seen the success it has had over the past year for no small part due to your exceptional leadership, your inspiring vision of where to take the game, and the energy you bring to both the hobby and those around you.
Thank you for your service as the PFS "Generalissimo" for the past several years, and my personal best wishes for you and your family in the years to come.

Right there with you, Purple Dragon Knight. However, he was also killed in the attack, so that's a non-issue at this point.
The problem resolved itself as, without my encouragement, the Bone Oracle decided against making the zombie. I still hit the Captain of the ship with an alignment violation (moving him from "Chaotic Good" to "Chaotic Neutral") for giving his blessing for the Bone Oracle to make Lady Smythee into a zombie.
I'll be sure to post any other thoughts and/or concerns to the boards to get your input as we advance the campaign.
So my players have repelled the assault on Tidewater Rock at the end of Part 2 of "Raiders of the Fever Sea". However, this was not without some cost as they could not act fast enough to prevent Isabella Lockehart from killing Lady Agasta Smythee and Royster McCleagh as the party fought off Isabella's pirate crew on the lower levels.
The captain of my crew had a few weeks prior agreed to terms with Lady Smythee and entered into a marriage agreement in order to become the Lord of Tidewater Rock. With her death, obviously this may cause some problems, but not a ton.
However, the problems have now compounded more as one of the players (a Bone Shaman played off as a "Voodoo Doctor") approached the Captain with the suggestion that he could "bring his bride back" (as a zombie). The Captain admitted he did not have any REAL attachment to his deceased wife, so he gave the Shaman his blessing to proceed with his plan.
I've already decided that agreeing to allow the Shaman to do this is a HUGE Alignment violation and am moving the player's character alignment from Chaotic Good to Chaotic Neutral.
What I was hoping for is some insight and/or advice on how you might handle this situation in your game. Tidewater Rock has a small temple (mostly initiate clerics) that serve Erastil, and the people in general liked Lady Smythee. I can only imagine how they might react should they realize that their former Lady of The Rock is now a shambling undead under the control of a Follower of Urgathoa.
The big joke lately has been that the party will be doing a fantasy remake of the film "Weekend at Bernie's", so I can see some humor. But, I also believe there should be some "real world consequences" for what they are doing, and how they might be able to cover things up for awhile.
Wow! Those are some pretty broad sweeping changes to the game! It'll be interesting to see how they go into effect from this point forward.
I'll have to carefully review the new Summoner rules to determine if my Halfling Rogue 1/Summoner 7 will use the new rules or not.
How soon will the "PFS Additional Resources" page & PDF be updated with these changes?

I think the problem comes from the new advantages of being immune to Poison, Drowning, Death Effects, taking damage from Positive-Charged Healing, healing only with Negative-Charged Healing, etc.
In my bi-weekly "Skull & Shackles" game, I have a PC that came to me asking if there was a way to play as a free-willed zombie-like creature similar to that found in the first "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie.
Now, although I do not claim to have a encyclopedic knowledge of the Pathfinder rules, I can say that I own 99.9% of the sourcebooks for this game and am not currently aware of an existing creature or template that would allow this.
So, as a purely scholastic endeavor (I'm not saying I would do this sort of thing or not), I would like to propose to the community how they might go about pulling something like this off.
Is anyone already aware of a third-party sourcebook that pulls this sort of thing off already?
If you were to use the Advanced Race Guide's Race Creation Rules, how would you handle it?
You might also want to check out Relics & Rituals: Olympus. I've looked at the book before, and it looks like a great resource to reference.
Also checkout The Trojan War Sourcebook from Green Ronin. This might help you out, as well.
In the recent "Mummy's Mask" AP, an article was included showing the Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Osirion. I've been looking around, but I haven't found anything saying that these Gods and Goddesses are PFS Legal. Can I get an official ruling from one of the Heads of the International Organized Campaign?

Funny enough, my first excursion into playing RPGs was "TNMT & Other Strangeness", as well. The Palladium Books RPGs still have a fond place in my heart, but I have grown to the point where I see the problems inherent in their Core System.
Looking forward to your involvement in future products in the Pathfinder RPG line (and perhaps in other future RPG lines that may be in the works from Paizo).
