So, now that the remaster is out, has anyone already put some though into creating wizard school curriculums for the branches of the Magaambya? I think that would be cool to have.

Is the errata listing updated yet? I can't find it.

The Free RPG Day website lists a Starfinder adventure called “Operation Seaside Park” as a Free RPG Day product from Paizo, but there's no product page to be found here. Is this adventure still going forward, or has it been cancelled or postponed?

So, James Jacobs, when talking on the Pathfinder Adventures PaizoCon panel about Pathfinder #200, referred to having #1 and another Sandpoint adventure as #200 as "bookends". I'm thinking now, could it be that Pathfinder #200, very likely the last OGL AP issue, is also the last volume in this line?

I think it is possible that, as they often do in the world of comics, Paizo might restart the Adventure Paths under the ORC license at #1, as Volume 2. What do you think?


I wonder what this teases!

I just noticed a change in the new 4th printing of the Core Rulebook that isn't mentioned in the errata listing on the FAQ page: produce flame was reworded to list the effects as success degree lines, not in the corpus of the spell description:

Core Rulebook, 3rd printing wrote:
A small ball of flame appears in the palm of your hand, and you lash out with it either in melee or at range. Make a spell attack roll against your target’s AC. This is normally a ranged attack, but you can also make a melee attack against a creature in your unarmed reach. On a success, you deal 1d4 fire damage plus your spellcasting ability modifier. On a critical success, the target takes double damage and 1d4 persistent fire damage.

Critical Success The target takes double damage and 1d4 persistent fire damage.

It doesn't change anything, but makes the spell formatting more consistent.

Did anyone notice any other stealth changes?

It might make sense now to promote the old Kingmaker forum to the top of the AP subforum, or create a new one for the 2E version.

I'm trying to order something but whenever I go to step 3, "Place Your Order", all I get is the error page saying "The requested URL was not found on this server, or you do not have permission to access this area." I have tried different browsers on different machines, all with the same result. What is going on?

I have emailed CS already, but did anyone experience a similar problem?

One of my players wants to play an eldritch archer in an upcoming campaign. We are unsure, however, if it is possible for the eldritch archer to use eldritch shot with touch range spells, such as shocking grasp. I can see nothing in the description of the ability that has any interaction with the spell's range.

So, can the eldritch archer shoot a touch range spell at a target 30 ft. away? Can they shoot a spell with a range of 30 ft. at a target 60 ft. away?

For the magus's spellstrike, which is similar to eldritch shot, Secrets of Magic states explicitly that the spell uses the weapon's reach. For the sparkling targe hybrid study, the book states explicitly to use the weapon range increment even if the spell's range is shorter. The eldritch archer has no such text, so it stands to reason that the spell range cannot be overcome by the ranged weapon.

What do you think?

When will the Abomination Vaults token be available for order?


Pathfinder Maps, Pathfinder Accessories Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

Dear Paizo people, please check up on my order #36419679.

I can't believe it's cheaper to split the shipment and send Bestiary 3 by itself. This looks like it is actually doubling the shipping cost, which is immense in this way.

I've had previous shipments with more stuff than this month for far less shipping costs.

Thanks.

Has anyone used these new rules from the "Galactic Trade" article in part 1 with this AP? What is your experience with these rules? Do they fit with the AP and improve on the usual BP rules?

I just learned today that the European Union is now levying new penalty tariffs on additional categories of goods exported from the US. One such category, unfortunately, is tabletop games, more or less of any kind, and the tariff is a whopping 25 %.

This effectively means, anything from Paizo which is not just a book, has just gotten 25 % more expensive for anyone in the EU. Of course this will affect both products bought directly from Paizo, as well as those bought via local shops.

If anyone is interested, you can get a PDF of the regulation here from the EU laws library. The relevant tariff number is 95049080, you can check out the categorization here.

More unpleasant news in these unpleasant times.

Edit: I just saw that playing cards are at 10 % only, so it might be helpful if Paizo were to declare actual cards products as such instead of as "Games".

Shouldn't my Pathfinder Advantage discount apply to the new Beginner Box PDFs? It usually applies to PDF products such as PFS Bounty PDFs or similar products.

Is it just me or does Curse of the Torrential Knowledge from the oracle's Knowledge mystery sound a lot like the sensory overload often experienced by autistic people?

I just noticed this little curiosity: we'll be getting two AP volumes with "Ruins of ..." in the title back to back soon: the final volume of Agents of Edgewatch is Ruins of the Radiant Siege which is the followed by Ruins of Gauntlight, the first volume for Abomination Vaults. :)


Pathfinder Maps, Pathfinder Accessories Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

Since Agents of Edgewatch is almost upon us and already being hotly discussed, it's probably time to create a subforum for this AP, as well as for Starfinder's Devastation Ark which is almost on the horizon by now.

I am a subscriber to the Pathfinder Accessories line, and I ordered the various Pathfinder Spell Card products on June 5 (Order 26171334), before the announced cutoff date, so I assume I am eligible to get the free digital assets for these products, as per the June 5 blog post:

Paizo Blog wrote:
Pathfinder Accessories subscribers who preorder Pathfinder Spell Cards on or before Monday June 8 at 10 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time will receive the free digital asset when their physical copy ships.

My order has shipped, and it's now past the street date for the spell cards, but I don't have access to the free digital assets. Can you please check this?

It's a shame that there are still 21 tales from the web fiction line that haven't been converted to ePub files (yet?). I'd buy them in a minute.

So, when you cast the light cantrip, it lasts all day and more, until your next daily preparation. According to the Core Rulebook, p. 305, a spell can be dismissed with the Dismiss action, but only if the spell explicitly allows that. There is no mentioning of dismissing in the description of the light cantrip. While you can cancel an individual casting of light by casting the cantrip again, you have the new instance to worry about then. There seems to be no way to actually get rid of the spell until the next morning.

This is especially inconvenient if you use a wayfinder, which can be commanded to cast light upon itself once per day. The thing will just light up your night—good luck getting a good night's sleep.

Is this intended? Or am I making a mistake here?

Fighter Training (Ex): Starting at 10th level, a magus counts 1/2 his total magus level as his fighter level for the purpose of qualifying for feats. If he has levels in fighter, these levels stack.

Isn't it weird design that st 10th level the magus gets a new class feature that has absolutely no immediate use for a standard single-class magus until he can level up again? Or am I missing something?

I have a familiar problem: I added Pathfinder Society Scenario #10-00 to my cart but once again my Pathfinder Advantage is not being applied. Can anyone please correct this? Please feel free to generate the order right away like Sam did the last time this occurred. Thank you!

I have added Starfinder Society Scenario #1-99 to my cart – I assume this is not supposed to be part of the subscription – but my Pathfinder Advantage is not being applied. Can anyone please rectify this? Thank you!

Hello good customer service people!

I have recently updated my PFS (First Edition) reporting and I have passed the 100-table threshold. My profile now shows four stars (though forum posts still show only three). If I'm getting this correct, I should now be granted access to various restricted PFS scenarios. I also understand that I should post here about this, so this can be correctly added to the system, is that correct?

Thank you, and I look forward to reading the secret stuff! :)

Regards
Stefan

Does Pathfinder Advantage still apply to individually bought PACG Society scenarios? I added the new scenario #6-1 to my cart, and Pathfinder Advantage was not applied.

The players guide has this quote in the description for the Time Lost campaign trait:

Return of the Runelords Player's Guide p.13 wrote:
Your GM will be provided with additional information about this trait’s strange nature in the third adventure of Return of the Runelords.

Was this ever followed upon or did it fall victim to space constraints? I can't seem to find anything in part 3.

With the reworking of Paizo's subscriptions I noticed that the Pathfinder Comics subscription is no longer listed in my tags or on my account details page. Does that mean that the line is officially canceled and the age of Pathfinder Comics is over?


Pathfinder Maps, Pathfinder Accessories Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

So, in previous editions of the ACG, when a check was made, every player was allowed to play a blessing on that check, so for example in a party of 4 the check could get 4 blessings on it.

With the new rules, the party is only allowed to collectively play one card of each type on a check, unless a card can be played freely. This seems to mean, though, that only one blessing can be played on each check, since, as far as I can determine, blessings aren't played freely.

That seems like a significant rules change and could dramatically alter the difficulty of the game, I think.

Do I get that right?


Pathfinder Maps, Pathfinder Accessories Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

It would be awesome if you could add a "Signal of Screams" forum to the Starfinder AP section. And while you're at it, if you could put the Starfinder AP forums in the same order as for Pathfinder, i.e. newest APs first, that would be great. Currently it's oldest first. Thank you!

If you are trained with a bow, are you also trained with the composite version of that bow? I cannot find any rule text to either confirm or deny this.

Simple question: is it allowed to choose uncommon items for a character's starting gear?


Pathfinder Maps, Pathfinder Accessories Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

I have a question regarding the budgeting of magic items for the playtest scenario.

For example, I think, if a player wants to buy a +1 glaive for their character, this counts as one 4th level item from their "budget" (see Rulebook p. 397, "Magic Weapon"). But if they want to buy a +1 disrupting glaive, do they have to buy the +1 glaive (4th level) and the disrupting rune (5th level) separately, costing two items from their budget, or does the following rule condense this into a single 5th level item, so they only have to spend one item from their budget?

Rulebook p. 370 wrote:
The level of an item with runes etched on it is equal to the highest level among the base item and all runes etched on it; therefore, a +1 mace (4th level) with a disrupting rune (5th level) would be a 5th-level item.

And would the same apply to a staff of healing (3rd level) with a disrupting rune (5th level)?

I'm wondering: is there any advantage of gaining initiative by rolling Stealth instead of Perception, except perhaps using a better bonus?

I'm asking for a creature in Doomsday Dawn, where the adventure says the creatures tries to approach stealthily and thus uses Stealth to roll initiative. Thing is, the creature has Stealth +7 and Perception +13. Why would it ever prefer to use Stealth?

I'm still confused, how it is still more beneficial to be unconscious from being knocked out that asleep.

The Asleep condition has the following provision:

Quote:
You critically fail all Reflex saves you must attempt.

The Unconscious condition, however, even in Update 1.3, has no such text. You can make Reflex saves at your full bonus all day while unconscious, and an unconscious rogue can even avoid all damage with Evasion.

I don't really think that makes sense.

Why was my latest subscription order 5324514 shipped with "Mail Innovations International"? (Same for my Playtest replacement order 7445800.)
I have my shipping preferences set to UPS shipping in my account. This new shipping method doesn't look much cheaper, cannot be tracked, looks like it would take a lot longer ("9 to 36 days" versus the 6–7 days the UPS orders usually take), and will most likely force me to drive out to the customs office to retrieve it (during work hours, no less), while UPS normally does all the customs work and delivers to my door. This is really annoying (especially the last point), and a bit disappointing.

Please make sure that my pending order 7453856 is really shipped via UPS. While the pending order says UPS, I think that was the case for order 5324514, too, originally, but then it was sent via Mail Innovations International.

A recent encounter brought me to think about this question. If you are a sufficiently powerful divine spellcaster, and you somehow become a type of undead that lets you keep your class levels, say, for example, a ghost, could you successfully cast resurrection on yourself?

Hello customer service,

today was the last day Vic listed for Germany that Pathfinder Playtest orders should be delivered. However, there has been no trace of my shipment. This is not only annoying for me, but also embarrassing as I collected money from my players to order books for them that they could actually have bought in the store weeks ago.

What course of action do you suggest now?

Kind regards
Stefan

I'm just watching the twitch stream of Doomsday Dawn The Lost Star, and I noticed that Katina's character, the monk, has Tiger Claws listed on her sheet as 1d10 weapons, while the rulebooks says they are 1d8. She also kills several goblins with the claws, but the rulebook says the claws are nonlethal weapons. Did they make a mistake, or am I missing something?


Pathfinder Maps, Pathfinder Accessories Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

This would make it much easier to find the Starfinder section when scrolling down. Other stuff, such as the card game, is already treated this was.

If you are asleep, you are also flat-footed and blinded, you get penalties to AC and Perception checks, and you critically fail all Reflex saves you must attempt. That makes sense.

Now if you're unconscious, you're flat-footed and blinded as well, and deafened in addition, and you get the same AC penalty. While it's OK that you do not get the perception penalty, as you will fail any perception check anyway being blind and deaf, but there is no mention of the automatic failure for Reflex saves.

I find that strange, that an unconscious character could possible roll aways from a fireball, while a sleeping character automatically fails critically. Or am I missing something?
