This is really cool! I'm glad you guys are doing this.

With respect to designs, my wife and I would both prefer more art that's designed for t-shirts... stuff like the iconics can stand alone in a book, but on a t-shirt it makes for some awkward shirt designs that we're not really into. (Unless it's in remembrance, you don't see a lot of shirts with a single depiction of a person on it, even if that person happens to be a fictional character. It's just a little odd.)

For an example of what works really well, the various Pathfinder ales are awesome. (The alcohol themes do rule them out for us, sadly.) If we could see more quirky stuff like that we'd be spending some money.

Could be stuff like travel shirts (visit the splendors of glorious Rahadoum!) or fun faux educational or team shirts (Arcanamirium Siege Club?) or whatever--there's a lot of tropes that would translate well!

James Jacobs,

The Pathfinder Wiki lists it and cites The Sixfold Trial. I'm not sure what page right off the bat. But if it's meant to be Senghor, I'll take your word for it James.

The Wiki isn't always 100% accurate, and it's sometimes frustrating to me that when we correct things or change things in the world lore that the Wiki doesn't always reflect those changes. I'm not trying to throw shade on the folks who work on the wiki, and they do a GREAT job at keeping it full of info—I use it all the time myself to help research topics... but it's not a primary source.

For content like this, were you see conflicts, it's best to compare the publication dates and "footprint" of the two products. In this case, Inner Sea Gods is more recent (and thus is where corrections like this would be printed, since traditionally we do not issue errata or corrections on a product-by-product basis for world lore), and it's footprint as a hardcover book that's specifically focused on presenting deity lore rather than being a softcover smaller book that's specifically focused on an adventure with the deity lore as support means that Inner Sea Gods is the correct information.

I've always had a hard time figuring out what those stealth corrections are. I rarely notice a difference and the info is usually supplemental, not a replacement. If something gets removed, you never know whether it's because there wasn't wordcount (Arodenite hats!) or if it was decided it was no longer canon. (Erastil's various opinions... I THINK..?) I'm not surprised that the wiki has uncorrected info, as the Chelaxians might say. You guys have a hard bunch of world lore to keep up with! Fun as Golarion is to read about...

I do really love these things. I would love to see a book that's just full of stuff like this, and deity lore more generally.

I normally run using a laptop, in my case running Ubuntu (a flavor of linux):

Benefits:
* I can open up multiple copies of the PDF to different pages and switch between them. I normally use workspaces (feature not available in Windows) but alt-tab should work okay.
* If I have a 'net connection (I usually tether with my phone) I can quick-search Archives of Nethys.
* It's fast and I can zoom in to read stuff.
* PDF annotations are great.
* Mice are also great!
Drawbacks:
* Weight: laptops aren't heavy, but they weigh more than nothing.
* Power: my laptop won't hold up for a whole 5+ hour scenario so I need to find power and connect to it.
* Size: if you've got a tiny table a bigger laptop is suboptimal.

In a pinch, I've run scenarios off a Chromebook, too. This probably works for a Surface as well:

Benefits:
* Easy access to the PDF.
* I can usually tether and search Archives of Nethys.
* The battery lasts forever, so I don't need to plug in.
* Smaller size: it doesn't take up nearly as much space on the table.
* Weight: it's pretty light.
Drawbacks:
* It's slower than a laptop and PDFs are slow. Scrolling can be a pain.
* The available applications don't handle PDF annotations quite as well in many cases (using a mobile reader to make mobile annotations changes this--my wife uses Xodo reader for Android/Chrome OS and doesn't have a problem)
* Switching from PDF view to PDF view is possible but sometimes it runs out of memory and has to reload the PDF.

My wife sometimes runs off her phone, which I think is nuts, but she likes it:

Benefits
* You always have your phone with you, so if you can prep on your phone, you always have your device with you.
* The battery life is usually pretty good.
* It doesn't take up ANY table space.
* You can look up at your table more when you're reading from the scenario
Drawbacks:
* It can be really slow.
* It's unlikely that you're able to switch from PDF view to PDF view.
* It can be hard to load files onto your phone unless you're using cloud storage like Drive, Dropbox, or whatever thing Microsoft is supporting. But then if you don't have an internet connection you lose access to network drives.
* The screen is tiiiiiny!

Remember you can always hybridize: print out the encounters (esp. PFS2) while running off a phone or tablet where switching between pages is hard or slow. Using both a tablet and phone at once. That sort of thing!

I agree with Pirate Rob's preference here. While I agree that campaign mode is the best way to play a module, we can't always choose the best way. I have a number of players locally who were hoping to run this module at a convention and will now be unable to as a result of the new sanctioning style. For those of us who run a full module, we're also missing out on a fair amount of experience that we would have gotten in PFS1, which is disappointing.

That said, thank you very much for working on sanctioning. I think we all appreciate having opportunities to play!

The rules for sharing books has not changed in a number of years. You have always had to own the source material you use in OP. The only sharing that was allowed involved family members and those living in one household. If you have been allowing all the members of your community to share materials, you have been deviating from the rules, rather than the rules changing.

I think this entry from the PFS FAQ may be relevant to your group:

https://paizo.com/paizo/faq/v5748nruor1fq#v5748eaic9qxi

PFS FAQ wrote:

Can I use photocopied pages from books, printed copies of PDFs, et cetera to satisfy having a source book that covers the rules used to create my character?

A player must have a physical copy of the Additional Resource in question, a name-watermarked Paizo PDF of the book, or a printout of the relevant pages from a name-watermarked PDF, as well as provide access electronically or a physical copy of the current version of the Additional Resources list, as advised in the Guide to Pathfinder Society Organized Play.

A print out is not a photocopy. It is exactly what it advises. It is a print out from a watermarked PDF that, when printed, shows the name of the person (and their email) on the top or bottom of the page. A photocopy of a physical book that does not show a watermark does not fulfill the requirement. This includes a photocopy of a book you borrowed from a friend, checked out of a library, or any other copy you obtained and photocopied or scanned pages from.

If a family member, significant other, or other members of the same household living together (such as college room mates) are playing at the same table, they may share the same resources instead of having duplicates of the same resource at the same table. If it is a group of friends that always plays together at the same table, as long as there is at least one sourcebook that covers each rule for every character at the table, it fulfills the requirement. For example, if they all play Chelaxian characters and utilize rules from the Cheliax book, and they are all playing at the same table, then they only need one Cheliax book at the table, and that book can be either physical or an electronic, watermarked copy. However, if they are playing at different tables, each person at a different table will need a physical copy, a PDF copy, or a printed watermarked copy of the relevant pages with them, that covers anything they choose to utilize in the build of their charactert. And if it needs to be clarified, watermarked PDFs may not be distributed electronically by anyone. If two members of the same household wish to share a PDF, and find themselves playing at separate tables, one can utilize an electronic version on an iPad or similar item, while the other utilizes a printed watermarked copy.

A screenshot of your downloads page, coupled with links to the appropriate PRD pages would cover both purposes if you choose to utilize such a method.

Hero Lab, or any other form of electronic character builder, is not a legal source to fulfill any of the above requirements. Electronic character builders are tools to assist participants in a more streamlined and efficient way to build a character.

Hey guys,

Looks like my order arrived! Hooray! But it arrived without the Alien Archive 3. Can you help me out?

Thanks!

Silver Crusade 5/5 Venture-Lieutenant, Pennsylvania—Pittsburgh aka Terminalmancer

I love Pathfinder 1 and as an organizer, I plan on playing and scheduling it for as long as I can. A lot of VOs (and even Paizo staff!) are in the same boat--remember, a lot of us got into this gig because we liked Pathfinder 1. And as far as ongoing support, we've heard some things about it, like the grant of replays, and there may be more to come in time.

That said, we're seeing some pretty strong interest in Pathfinder 2e and you should definitely check it out. There's something cool about playing a new scenario just as it's released and being able to influence the direction of the campaign. You may also want to try Starfinder, which lives in the design space between PF1 and PF2 and is also a lot of fun to play!

Silver Crusade 5/5 Venture-Lieutenant, Pennsylvania—Pittsburgh aka Terminalmancer

With the change in staffing they might be a little swamped right now. I'm going to keep my fingers crossed, but I'm not expecting a whole lot of surprise content.

"Inflamed hyperbole" is a little bit of inflamed hyperbole, yes? :) As power users, we're not always good at recognizing problems. This can lead to completely valid, legitimate issues seeming silly or contrived when an experienced user sees someone else fighting with a system. And usability issues tend to hit people personally, so the feedback you get can be more... visceral, we'll say. That doesn't make the feedback itself invalid, however. A lot of the issues Yossarian pointed out are things I would likely identify as issues in an heuristic evaluation were I to sit down and do one.

And apologies if I was being misleading, myself--I wasn't saying that Paizo is not open to feedback. They've been very accepting of it, in my experience. But Paizo can only react to feedback they hear. If we tell visitors that the bad user experience they just had wasn't actually a bad experience, that's not especially great.

Following a theme from further upthread, some food for thought: it's probably worth keeping in mind that perceived usability increases with exposure. As a result, frequent users of a website are not good judges of how usable that website is. It's a situation where your personal experience can be incredibly misleading. I know I've personally gotten used to a number of its quirks, even though adjusting to those quirks was a long and especially painful process.

This is especially true when a tool has a number of options for expert users built in which are of lower or no value to new users. Those features can be especially valuable but don't have much bearing on the usability of the tool for most people.

While not all of Yossarian's criticisms will be true for every user, they're largely talking about well-accepted best practices. It's worth noting that people do absolutely conflate their perceptions of websites with the products those websites sell and those perceptions strongly influence purchasing decisions. It may not make sense to you, but reality is freakin' weird, and if you think hard enough, I guarantee that you could remember some times when you didn't buy something because a store or a website looked sketchy or seemed broken.

(It does make more sense the more you know about signalling theory, too.)

An aside:
When I'm advising an owner or maintainer of a website on usability concerns, one of the most important things I stress is not to get defensive about it. Honest user feedback is gold and becoming defensive is an excellent way to stop receiving it--not only does it mean that other users are less likely to provide it, but you're also less likely to listen. If, as regular posters, we make it hard for Paizo to hear criticism and feedback they'll have a harder time improving--even if they themselves are completely open to it.

Hello folks,

I just wanted to provide an update to the Venture Officers curious about the progress in fixing the non-subscription granting process.

Unfortunately, after spending most of the day working on this with my tech team comrade, we do not have a solution implemented for exactly why these aren't reaching some people. What we have discovered is that it is mostly P2 content, including 1-00 and the quests (still waiting for confirmation on this, but I'm fairly sure you're all right). This has given us a possible fix that we don't feel comfortable fiddling with without the input of some of our still out of office departments.

We can't get this fixed today, but are hopeful for tomorrow. I'll keep trying to patch in the meantime where necessary. Thank you for your patience.

Thanks a ton, Sam. I seem to have been "patched" and I really appreciate it. Good luck..!

1-00 or the Sandstone Secret (PFS 2 Quest 1A) are not scenarios which will be granted automatically to Venture Officers as far as we've been told. I believe they are convention locked assets.

I'm another VO here, who also is "missing" 10-23, PFS2 1-00, and the PFS2 quest. I needed 10-23 so I had to buy it--I don't suppose you could comp me for that, please? I would greatly appreciate it if you could. Otherwise, granting the two PFS2 things would be a huge help.

I don't suppose if I go out and pay for the scenario I'm supposed to get for free as a VL, I could get a refund when you've got more time to deal with things after Gencon...

Hey gang, it looks like we have a count of the replays we've been granted! I seem to have 30 to burn. (My wife has 28. And it seems like those are in the same ballpark as a number of other regular players and GMs.)

Thank you!

I've got some questions about how this will actually work in practice:

1. Is our use of these going to be tracked automatically?

1a. Many of us have a number of other sources of replay, like GM stars, that aren't tracked--but for the GM stars, they're the renewable resource. We want to burn those before we burn the nonrenewable replays. If this is tracked automatically, how do we represent the use of one of these other replays?

1b. Edge cases: if the system is automatically tracking things, how do we need to change reporting to compensate? Are there any rules we should follow? (Example: GM does not want to take credit; player is replaying a scenario for no credit, but with a non-pregen character)

2. These replays are just for Pathfinder 1 (and, I presume, Pathfinder 1 Core), right? (They're just labeled Replays at the moment)

3. We're still operating under the assumption that, if we've replayed something in ages past, we cannot use the new pool of replays to replay that scenario again, right?

I started wondering about this stuff because I've got a couple of GM star replays burning a hole in my pocket, and I'd like to make sure I use them (and not these new replays) before Gencon hits. I'll probably start finding out sooner rather than later, but some official guidance would be helpful for everyone!

I find it odd that people don't know who the other people & GM were after 4 hours of sitting at the same table together and interacting all that time.

After 4 or 5 hours at a table with someone I might be able to tell you all sorts of things about my fellow player, including what they had for lunch, whether they have any kids, what their favorite class is, whether they know how to roll attacks and damage dice together, and so on.

I am probably not, however, going to remember their name.

I don't think it's worth getting hung up on why someone doesn't remember their GM's name. That's especially true months after an event where they didn't get much sleep.

In most cases a chronicle sheet could help resolve this, but that's not exactly how the playtest worked...

Hey, there are some really awesome-looking new features! Thanks for getting us our playtest points back, and the new boons tab looks pretty spiffy.

Thou giveth and thou taketh away, however--it looks like I can't make any more (non-CORE) PFS1 characters, which is pretty frustrating for me as an IRL VO (we've been on a long crusade to get people to register their characters) but it's got to be a huge deal for the online crowd, particularly the Play by Post-ers who rely on creating characters in order to play.

Is there a range that you guys are expecting the replay grant to end up on? 1-10 replays? 10-50 replays? 0-150 replays? Letting those of us who have burned out our replay options keep pace with the new players is a worthwhile goal, but it could require a LOT of replays.

I want to be happy with the announcement, but without any real detail, it's hard to evaluate!

I'd be in for a 1e hardcover! A 2e hardcover is probably a "no, thanks" for me. If it doesn't happen, though, I get why--even though I'll find the decision awfully disappointing.

It's an interesting time to be crowdfunding for 2e though. 2e really wasn't looking good. Granted, it should be much better in production, but we haven't seen it and won't see it by the time we've given our money to Paizo. Getting a large speculative investment in a new system whose playtest was painful at best is an odd choice. I would have expected Paizo to show off the shiny new post-feedback 2e first, that way they're not fighting against as much underinformed grar!

In the specific case, you're forgetting the "Permanent bonuses" clause. You need to spend an hour reading the book each morning, which isn't too far away from preparing a spell, but might be enough for a GM to rule that it's not as permanent a bonus as a masterwork tool.
Not quite. You're thinking of the specifically-numbered chronicles from the PFSPrimer. I'm talking about the ones from the Adventurer's Guide and Inner Sea World Guide. Granted, those also take 1d4 rounds to use, so a GM that wanted to ban it would still have a reason...

Ah, but see? Those chronicles are so obviously temporary bonuses (at least to me) that I didn't even consider them as possibilities! So there's a good example of your table variation.
