Can this be used with Forge? If so, how do you redeem it?

I could not find it in the Forge Bazaar, but I was able to install it via the Manifest URL linked at the bottom for the Foundry product page: https://foundryvtt.com/packages/pf2e-beginner-box

Regarding the Infernal Insight bargain from Cinder, what happens if the PCs take the information but do not hand over Adrian Thrune? I see that combo is covered by the Reporting Notes, but do the PCs experience any repercussions?

Can someone explain the chronicle boon? The summary on the Boon page just says you get an Infernal Contract. What do you do with an Infernal Contract? Or maybe the specific wording of the actual boon refers to the Boon of Hellfire deal?

I ran this last night, and we had fun. I allowed a 10-minute rest after each fight, but the benefits of spending an Aspiration Point inside the head made me second guess that.

How quickly are the PCs expected to move through this scenario?

So what actually happens after a TPK? Urwal presumably survives. The dragon presumably dies. What happens to the PCs bodies and gear. Does Urwal bring them back?

Ugh. I am so sorry for missing the finish. Thank you everyone. This was an excellent game.

The Map is updated to move your Token!

I had accidentally moved my token on Friday(?), thinking it was my turn, then I forgot to move the token back when I realized Brimley was at the end of initiative, not with the party.. When combat started he was even with the 3<->8 line. So I think he's in the right spot.

I hope I did the saves and responses to the spiders correctly!

Cool, but I think any creature based on Welsh anything should include a pronunciation guide. Irish is bad enough.

I believe there is art for Ogthup in the tier 7-10 playtest adventure.

Precisely it's the Tier 10 play test Society scenario, The Frozen Oath. Thank you for the clue!

Do all the chronicles need to be applied to the same Society character? (I'm guessing no.)

Is it allowable to let players see the chronicle after they've finished that chapter but before they decide what character to apply it to? (Since several of the boons seem to apply to the character, and not "give this to one of your character's", I'm guessing yes.)

Can anyone offer suggestions for a Velstrac Interlocutor mini? Between manufactured minis and 3D printing options, this is the first monster in four books where I am completely striking out.

If you buy the PDF, can you have them printed at an office supply?

Yes, you can print one copy for personal use. They don't police how you print it. From the Paizo FAQ:

You may print one copy of any Paizo PDF for personal use. Note that this only applies to products that list Paizo Publishing or Paizo Inc as the copyright holder—other publishers may have different policies; you'll need to contact them directly.

Anecdotally I've had Office Depot print things for me. I've made sure the purchase watermark is clearly visible, but they've never questioned me about it.

What is the incentive to save the stone giant, Seddothrum? He offers no payment, and trying to smuggle out a giant seems like it jeopardizes the entire mission. Maybe giants are super common travelers in and out of Xin-Edasseril so he wouldn't seem like an extraordinary companion? As for incentive I suppose he could blackmail the PCs by threatening to report them to the authorities. But I'm curious what other GMs are thinking.

The PCs are told to take some refugees to a ship in the middle of Shard Cove on the fourth day. And then later there’s info about how to build a raft out of a barrel, and the scenario rather assumes the PCs **are** dragging a raft through the sewers. But honestly, what player is going to be milling around the basement of Rockfish Inn and think, “I’ve got all this time on my hands. I think I’ll spend 8 hours making a raft out of a wine cask that I will then carry around town for the next 4 days." It seems like a large leap, and there are no info checks to learn about the cove, whether there might boats, whether it can be accessed from any route other than the sewers. So I'm just a bit stumped how these dots should get connected beyond billboard-sized hints from me.

And _if_ they build a raft, it's almost certainly a 4 person raft given the Crafting DC, which seems like a disaster. I can foresee 2 PCs and 2 NPCs on a raft being attacked by the reefclaws and sharks. How fast does the raft move? Can NPCs propel it while the PCs fight monsters? Can they build like 6 rafts? Running into a shard can very easily break a raft (not to mention a shark attacking it) so now what? It can't move? It moves at half speed? Everyone falls in the water? Why don't the PCs just bribe a fisherman to transfer all the refugees to Rolanna's Prayer? It seems the most likely plan unless I hit them over the head with the raft idea.

How much Downtime did you give your players after Hellknight Hill? I'm thinking 30 days to get a start on the repair rules from the next book and to transfer some runes to their preferred equipment.

My group went through Huntergate in our most recent session. It was the 13th day after finding the deed to the Citadel.

Hooray! Congratulations and welcome! I've already run Port Peril Pub Crawl and thought it was excellent!

The Society scenarios seem like very good candidates. I've run the Mosquito Witch multiple times and it is a very good one. The combats are not deadly but still a good challenge, and there's plenty of investigation and roleplaying.

How do you all feel about goblins not always being crazy, evil psychopaths? Because another scenario I can recommend is 1-07 Flooded King's Court. Some really fun roleplaying in the beginning, some dungeon exploration with a couple fun fights, and then an unexpected moral choice at the end.

Whatever you choose, good luck! I hope your group enjoys 2e. I'm loving it.

Another vote for mobile. But also another HUGE thank you for the marvelous tracker. Take your time.

Who is the artist that did the NPC portraits in this volume, such as Satla, Ephiminia, Exavisu, and Palqari? I absolutely love them.

In that vein I wish the artist credit for each picture was easy to figure out, instead of just the general “interior artist” list at the beginning of the volume. Or maybe this exists somewhere?

They print really well. I'll second the endorsement of "Poster" print mode in Acrobat Reader. I don't feel the savings is worth it over the physical flip-mats, but when I need an out of print map it works well. I use regular printer paper, but I do prefer quality 24 lb stock over 20 lb. It still folds well but feels and lays a bit better. Use a straight-edge and razor/boxcutter/exacto knife to trim the white edges before taping. Take your time and people will think you own a big plotter. :-)
