I think Yoon used the Human Favored class bonus of 1/6th an Extra Wild Talent feat

I thought this too, but when I did the math the FC bonus went towards HP.

Personally, the only hardback I carry is the Players Handbook (still the most useful book in the arsenal). Every thing else I keep a PDF of on my device. I print out relevant pages from those for each of my charecters for feats, classes, odd equipment, etc. Even if I didn't bring a device to keep them on; by printing out the watermarked pages I'm covered for what I am running.

My understanding has always been that the chronicle only lets you bypass the fame requirement to purchase items or purchase items in smaller quantities or less charges. All other class/ability/feat requirements still need to be met to buy those things.

Grand Lodge

WOW, these are all amazing. "Dolgar" has my vote though.

Grand Lodge

RP wise this seems like a fun feat, but really you do more damage with 2 medium sized weapons than you do with 1 large weapon. Not to mention the amount of bonuses from dex and whatever else that can be added to 2 weapons vs. just 1.

though I must admit seeing 2 halflings running around with a big ole musket would look quite comical.

I had a local gaming buddy mention his daily 3 2 1 rule for cons.

3 hours of sleep
2 meals
1 shower

the list is meant to go from bottom to top and step 1 should never be overlooked, 2 and 3 and more on the optional side.

Grand Lodge

So we all roll initiative and the BBEG is at the top of the order followed by my buddy (the fighter of the group), myself and then the rest of the party.

DM declares he'll be attacking my buddy and begins to make his rolls.

While the DMs making his rolls my buddy leans over and whispers "Ok, lets flank him, after this hit I'm gonna step back and to the left..."

But before he could get another word out the DMs proclaims the BBEGs raging greataxe crit for full damage (to the head for kicks and giggles) dropping the fighter outright in one hit.

to which my buddy begins to swear "NO, NO, I step back and to the left, BACK AND TO THE LEFT!"

To this day no one in our group can die before they plead that they had stepped "back and to the left"

Is a pretty cool page

Thanks for the link Rob. I've used the wiki often but never knew that page existed, sweet!

Awesome, that gives me a lot more to pull from. Thanks guys.

I have a character with a backstory originating in Katapesh. I'd like to keep him in as many desert/Arabian themed stories as possible. I'm looking forward the season 7 story Between The Lines.

What I was wanting to know is are there any/many other desert or Arabian themed PFS scenarios?

I know there was a thread about this a few years ago but a few seasons have come and gone since then so I figured it would be easier to start a new one than necro the old one.

The list so far is:

#0-3 Murder on the Silken Caravan
#0-14 The Many Fortunes of Grandmaster Torch
#0-27 Lady of Silver
#1-32 Drow of the Darklands Pyramid
#1-39 The Citadel of Flame
#1-53 The Echoes of the Everwar Part IV: The Faithless Dead
#2-3 The Rebels Ransom
#2-6 The Heresy of Man Part I: The First Heresy
#2-7 The Heresy of Man Part II: Where Dark Things Sleep
#2-9 The Heresy of Man Part III: Beneath Forgotten Sands
#2-20 Wrath of the Accursed
#2-18 The Forbidden Furnace of Forgotten Koor
#3-3 Ghenett Manor Gauntlet

Side note, isn't warrior an npc class? I didn't think those were legal for play in PFS.

Grand Lodge

I'm looking for the custom order boon.

I don't get a chance to attend many cons and all I have is the Numerian Weapon Training boon, but I also have a fair amount of dwarven mage knight minis to trade if anyone is interested.

Kit, male human gunslinger

1. Why are you a Pathfinder?

I joined the Pathfinders to travel the world, just like I did with my parents when I was younger.

2. Do you have a name and surname that is not ripped straight out of existing Earth mythology or popular culture?

Kito “Kit” Faadi

3. Which nation did you grow up in? How did this nation influence you?

Katapesh. My parents were merchants in the great bazaars of Katapesh. It was a chaotic childhood full of many wonders and fascinating people from the farthest corners of the world. There was no end to the chaos. After seeing other cultures on our travels I realized there is a better way to do this. Surely there is a more civilized and lawful way to exist. It was on these trips that I found the church of Abadar and heard his call.

4. What do you look like? What are your wearing? How does this vary
when you’re stalking through forests, sewers, deserts or in glittering cities?

Tall and trim with coal Black hair. I Prefer the loose flowing robes typical of my home land. I will wear what I need to when the moment arises but prefer to use magical means to combat harsh and uncomfortable environments.

5. What do you love? (Treasure and experience doesn’t count)

Seeing the world. There are so many new and fascinating cultures to explore. This was my greatest love as a child and still is to this day.

6. What do you hate? (Unclear and irritating darkness level rules don’t count)

I hate those who sow strife. To see others hurts only because you can infuriates me.

7. Which other Pathfinders (PCs) do you rely on for teamwork, survival and butt-kicking? Do you have a bro? a mentor? a father figure? maybe a rival?

After my parents died I began to make a name for myself. In Katapesh I worked for the Sword and Shield protecting the caravans. Not many stuck around the job long unless you knew what you were doing and If you knew what you were doing you didn’t stick around long. I never had a chance to get to close to my co-workers.
I’ve only been a pathfinder for little less than a year now and have only recently completed my confirmation. The nature of this job keeps me moving and supplied with new people to meet. I would not have it any other way.

8. How does your race influence your views? Are you a stereotype of a certain race? How are you different from most humans/elves/gnomes/orcs/tengu?

Growing up in Katapesh you see many people of many races. All have money to spend and were to be treated as such. But life has changed my views on some. For one Gnolls, vicious and cruel are good for nothing but evil.

9. What are you afraid of? Do you have any phobias or worries?

After braving the harshest deserts Golarion has to offer not much scares me. Though I have traveled by boat many times I have never loved the sea. The very thought of being drug beneath the waves brings chills to my body. Of all the ways to die, drowning is not one I wish to explore.

10. What is your most treasured possession?

My musket. It is last thing my parents bought. They purchased it while on a trip to Alkenstar. It was to be sold in the bazaars back home. They never made home, so I keep as a reminder to protect those who can’t protect themselves.

Kito “Kit” Faadi; Human Gunslinger hailing from Katapesh. His parents were merchants that traveled near and far to trade merchandise for the bazaars of Katapesh. At the age of seventeen he accompanied his parents on an I’ll fated trip to Alkenstar. While returning home their caravan was overrun by Gnoll traders looking for living merchandise. Their escort fled in fear as the marauders descended up them. Kit was the sole survivor; all others were taken away or killed, Kits parents died that day as well. He swore that such a fate would never befall anyone under his care. For the next few years he served the local Sword n Shield protecting caravans from Katapesh. This served him well for a time, but soon he felt the call to travel, as he did growing up. He joined the Pathfinder Society to protect its members while seeing the world. Kit is tall and lean with coal black hair, he prefers loose the loose fitting robes common to his homeland. He protects those under his charge with the last item his parents purchased, a handcrafted musket from the Gunworks of Alkenstar.

I've been playing PFS little over a year now. I bought the CRB in hardback because I knew I would need it the most. Then after that I bought all my other books in PDF and simply printed out the relevant pages for each character I had, doing it this way gives you the watermark. This has worked really well for me. I don't have to lug around lots of books and the price of a PDF is awesome compared to the hardbacks.

I remember 3.5 had a book called Savage Species that broke down monsterous races by level. So you could play some of the more interesting races even at lower levels, though they weren't "fully charged" so to speak. i.e. a minotour may have been equivalent to a 8th lvl charecter; but you could work them up to that lvl by lvl gaining a little bit of its abilities along the way. You could even throw in class levels along the way as you wished.

I always loved pulling some races from that book; my favorites were minotaurs and hound archons.

Dude, these are awesome. Now I wish I wasn't at work so I could start copying my charecters over right now. Thanks for the hard work you put into these wonderful journals!

A stone block falls from the ceiling landing on a party member; blood begins to pool out from under the block. The stone is actually hollow with bladders around the bottom full of blood. The pc inside the stone is fine, but stuck. The pc's outside beleive their friend has just been pasted and move on. later; baddies come and remove the stone and take the pc captive.

jtaylor, I totaly understand where your coming from. I played my first PFS event about 6 months ago. The scenario we were in had us following a thief and I was the only one able to keep up with him. Suddenly he's gone ... then I get sneak attacked for full damage with a crit at full damage. I dropped and without a cleric in the group there I died. The thing is I watched the DM roll all the dice and there was nothing I could do to stop it. The BBEG was played as written. But the thing is, for me, this is exactly how I would of expected the bad guy to react. I mean wouldn't you do everything possible to try and kill someone that is trying to kill you. We are never guaranteed to live through a scenario 1st lvl, 12th lvl, or even 20th lvl. It happens, some times we end up in a group in a story that just makes it harder than for another group.

I hate that you had a experiance your first time out the gate. But give it anouther try, maybe a different GM if that would help.

The silver lining here is just because that charecter you put all that time and effort into is dead does not mean that you can't use him again exactly the same way he is as you #-2; that's exactly what I did, now hes lvl 3 and getting cooler each time I get to play. Heck when he dies I may just reissue him again.

Grand Lodge

Well that makes sense. thanks.

Would a +1 distance Blunderbuss effectivly have a 30ft cone instead of a 15ft cone?

Grand Lodge

Always thought a Medusa riding a Gorgan would be pretty nasty. I realize this would never be possible as a PC it would make one vicious BBEG.

Half-Orc Cleric

By Gorum! That sounds like it could be fun.
Or maybe I could pull a falchion and claim for the dawnflower.

...hmmm choices...

Grand Lodge

Personally I think that planning a session for a charecter by knowing what the the adeventure involves is a little counter productive. As far as fiction goes to the members of the Society don't wake up saying "I think I will take an assingment today that plays up all of my strengths and has the exact kind of action and material that I want." Do they? I don't think so. They take the missions they are assinged and make the best of it. Some of my favorite sessions have been where I was put completely out of my element. Its moments like these that add to the varied history of some of my favorite charecters. I feel like the concept of #ing a scenario with to many story details takes away from the suprise and interest of being a pathfinder. If you wanted this we would be playing scenarios with titles like "The Doppelanger Effect", "The Osriani Tomb Crawl", and "A Night at a Taldor Party". When you know what to expect its just not as fun IMHO.

Minotaur barbarian so I could break out the mad cow!

Thanks for the help guys. It makes more sense to me now.

Grand Lodge

I figure they'll change this in one way or another. Hopefully they'll put a little bit more clarification in there too.

Grand Lodge

Looking for some clarification here. The warpriest sacred weapons applies to the weapon.

"Sacred Weapon (Su): Weapons wielded by a warpriest
are charged with the power of his faith. In addition to the
favored weapon of his deity, the warpriest can designate
a weapon as a sacred weapon by selecting that weapon
with the Weapon Focus feat (if he has multiple Weapon
Focus feats, this ability applies to all of them). Whenever
the warpriest is wielding a sacred weapon, he treats his
warpriest level as his base attack bonus for attacks made
with that weapon, stacking with any base attack bonus
from other classes or racial Hit Dice."

Would weilding two starknifes grant the sacred weapon ability to both or just one?

I've got a gnome summoner with more of a clockwork eidolon. RP wise when he dies hes just a pile of scrap that takes me about 24 hours to put back together.
