When i'm downloading something, besides clicking 3-5 times and waiting for a minute, there's some weird behavior.
First download goes well, but if i want to download something else afterwards and click on it, the entry simply vanishes and nothing happens. That happens to any entry i click then.
To successfully download something again then i need to close the tab, open a new one and go to digital content again.

Sorting doesn't seem to be functional either.

Firefoy Quantum 62.0.2 64-bit, but same results on latest Google Chrome.
Is this and the forum overall actually optimized for a certain browser?

Gameplay Thread. Please dot and introduce your character. Game will begin on March 5.


The Gap was a sudden loss of history that shook the entire galaxy. It was an event where history disappeared from the minds of everyone throughout the multiverse, and only the gods have an inkling of what happened, but they refuse to speak of it.
In that nebulous time of missing history, the world of Golarion disappeared, though the gods indicate the world — wherever it is — is safe. In the aftermath of the Gap came the revelation of faster-than-light travel by means of the Drift. It was during this time that the Starfinder Society formed and became one of the eminent organizations of the Pact Worlds. The machine god Triune’s gift of rapid interstellar travel facilitated a sudden land rush by colonists and corporations alike, and as exploration became an extremely lucrative business, the information that Starfinder agents retrieved secured the Society’s prestige and wealth.
This prosperous age recently came to an abrupt end within the star systems known as the Scoured Stars. An armada containing almost 80% of the Society’s agents and assets joined the Society’s First Seeker on a mission to the Scoured Stars, only for all its transmissions to cease. When the remaining Starfinders in the Lorespire Complex attempted to make contact, they discovered a terrifying truth: the Scoured Stars were now cut off from the rest of the multiverse by a barrier of incomprehensible power.
The events of the Scoured Stars left the Starfinder Society crippled, as most of the Society’s agents and assets resided within the now inaccessible systems. The Society’s prestige crumbled, and many of the Starfinders’ distant holdings fell to alien forces within months of the incident. Only the actions of one outspoken Starfinder, Luwazi Elsebo, held the Society together. Even with the dedication of Luwazi and her allies, the Society suffered further losses as disillusioned agents opted to part ways with the organization. Maintaining the Society’s interests was too much for the few remaining agents to handle, so Luwazi turned to outside assistance from reputable mercenary organizations.
With the Starfinders on the brink of ruin, Luwazi’s hopes now rest in the hands of a new generation of recruits and ambitious factions.
Today is a momentous day for the Society, as it marks the graduation of the first wave of fresh agents from accelerated Starfinder training. These agents represent the first step the Starfinder Society is taking to reposition itself at the forefront of galactic exploration.

Welcome agents!

Whatever happened to this post?

Running latest firefox on Windows 10.
Page is generaly loading really slow, especially in PbP forum and posting takes a long time as well.
Some posts randomly don't come through.

Having a bit more time at hand again i decided to run some PBP.
I want to start with #9-01: The Cost of Enlightenment.

Naturaly, all characters need to be Pathfinder Society legal. The rules can be found here for free.
If you have any questions please ask.

Some players already expressed interest, hence it may not be first come first serve.

I´ll try to post 2 times a day or more often when possible. Combat will be resolved in rounds with summary posts, so players are encouraged to post their actions with initiative and round number.

Currently i am experiencing problems downloading any products from the download section and the website is very slow overall.
I´m using Firefox 55.0.3 if that´s any help.

Someone else seeing this problem?

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Are there ways for non-druids to get this spell?
Or does perhaps any other class gain the spell?

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Levels like in classic Pathfinder or better a point buy system where you can buy different abilities, skills, feats, etc with the experience you earned?

Tian Xia has been featured in several products already, namely Dragon Empires Gazetteer, Dragon Empires Primer, the last 3 books of the Jade Regent AP and Distant Shores.

There´s also related material in the Advanced Race Guide and other books.

While the Inner Sea surely has potential for interesting stories left, i feel it is time to visit more of Tian Xia. There are countless opportunities and stories to be told!
SO if you shar the same opinion and want more Tian Xia material - from Pathfinder Society scenarios over modules to a full out AP, but also more source material, campaign setting and player guides - express your wishes here and talk about it!
Also consider buying the above mentioned material and reviewing it.

If you are not interested, or hearsay stuff didn´t go well in the past, or prefer other material, that´s cool, but please talk about that somewhere else.

So the good news, Paizo licences another digital application.
It even sounds promising, especially the connection to PFS and the extensive adventure library.

The bad news?
Oh wait, this is only for the 5% of people owning some overpriced Apple products.

As stated on Facebook, there are plans for android.
I feel obliged to point out that there were plans for a VTT too, among some other stuff. And "there are plans" is not the same as "there is something for".

As someone who doesn´t own an apple product and has no current plans to own one, i cannot understand this decision. It´s frankly disapointing, especially since it seems that this is also one of the larger "surprises" this year. The feedback on facebook shows that i´m not the only person there. For quite some time now, people also spoke out on the board for multiplattform support.

I sincerely hope the next big surprise is not:
"Paizo licences new Pathfinder RPG Game in cooperation with Obsidian, on mobile apple devices".

I played Jade Regent and really liked the TianXia part of it, so i´m looking for some more adventures there. Since Paizo is reluctant to follow up on that, perhaps someone knows of Pathfinder compatible adventures?
I know of "Kaidan" what i will look at in the near future probably.

Thanks for other suggestions!

Feel free to discuss anything, especially about the game.

Please check in here, update your alias profiles and post your PFS numbers etc.

As wished, this will be a core table.


Recruitment for Siege of Serpents.
Level to be determined. Some got invitations here.

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Posting numbers on avatar and alii are already visible.
Looking at different profiles i recognized there are vast differences though. Some people i know only joined "lately" have incredible posting numbers, while others who are here for years have still low counts.
Sometimes that can be explained by looking at several posts^^

Still i think it would be usefull to have that joined by date on a profile. It doesn´t seem like an intrusion to privacy to me.
Could also have beneficial effects for different board sections.

-PbP some might prefer long time members.
-newer members could be doubted more often or not taken seriously sometimes in rules regards etc.

-PbP: Could show a consistency rate
-PbP: some prefer high posting rates, so many postings in short time can be a good thing.
-Long time players/GM´s have sometimes a better grip on the rules, more experience (or not).

Not sure if possible from a technical perspective.

Important: Until further notice, this is invitation only!

Build your character with the standard PFS rules please, as found in the guide. Make a PFS alias for it and post here.
Guidelines and recommendations for PbP can be found if you click on my name, also how to format your character sheet and things.

For a map, we can either use roll20 or

Then we start the cruise with the Wounded Wisp.
From there we can see how this develops^^

So, i reported 45 games and have 5 games among them with a GM credit +2 mark.
One is telling me "Player has already run scenario at session # 2 of event # xxx."

How much GM credit am i supposed to have?
And what´s the meaning of that line? How does that matter on GM credit?

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Can you please delete this event?
It´s already there so it´s a double due to an oversight.

Above you see my plan for Giantslayer.
Main trick of this character will be to climb larger foes and dirty trick them. Advice and suggestions are welcome.
Especially on the combat maneuvers and feat selection.
I´m playing this for fun and not damage optimization, also rogues are bad comments are unwished for.
Thanks for being civil and helpful in advance.

This is based on my experience and observations i made, not meant to be a criticism of any person, but a friendly exchange of opinions and experiences.

Most people i saw who had the grace to GM a campaign or an AP for others had often very set views on the game. They liked or disliked certain classes, races, feats, playstyles etc and made modifications based on that or excluded stuff.
On the other hand, there are the players, some of them having visions and ideas what they want to play. Some are very versatile system wise and can make powerful builds, others might have no clue about rules, but a clear vision of their character and a powerful roleplaying ability.
Often there are then discussions about what is too powerful or not.
Fun for players often seems to diminish the fun for GMs and things are then banned.
If this is some feats, some magical items, or spells doesn´t make a big difference mostly, there´s a balancing act.
Now one reason for that is surely balancing stronger players vs others and encounters. Sometimes things like races can or should also be restricted because of the campaign flavor.

Sometimes those things, especially the "balancing" seems a bit unreasonable though and can diminish the fun of the players, who always have less pull.

Now, what are your experiences and opinions on that and how do you handle such things?

Hi there!
I´m looking for a group to either play or GM scenarios.
While that is per se nothing special, it gets a bit more special now.
Due to schedule i have often time in afternoons and in this season the weather really sucks around here, so i´d love to have some games there.

I´m at UTC +1, that means this is more interesting for european or australian based people probably.

Either roll20 or really fast paced PbP here with maps is both fine.
Someone interested?

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I´m a big fan of enchantment spells and it always saddened me that some of the most funny and thematic spells just loose their viability after some levels due to the HD limit they can affect.
Lately i had the very interesting idea to apply some metamagic to some of those spells. Reason for that was the sacred geometry feat that makes it actually possible, or easier than before.

An example would be hypotism, what has a hd limit of 2d4.
You can now apply maximised making it 8 and then ad another +4 by empowering spell, makes for 12 hd.
Spell could be heightened for a higher DC.

Think that´s worth it and possible?
Other such nice ideas anyone?
I was looking to make daze or sleep more worthwhile, but it seems there is no way actually.
