I've brought this up a couple of times now but never on its own so I'm dedicating a thread to it now.

Paizo Order # 7896137 was supposed to contain a "Starfinder Rules Reference Deck" but I never received it. Everything else in the order was correct. There was an unordered Pathfinder 2e Condition Card Deck in there, however.

Could I get the Rules Reference added to my next shipment? I already paid for it.

I can infer that they have started the auth process from the way my "My Subscriptions" page is messed up. Items shipping this month will tend to disappear from that page once this process starts.

I am reassured. My account page makes it seem that the Character Guide is being skipped in my subscription. I will assume for now that it is just in a limbo state until auth happens. I will delay freaking out until Tuesday at the earliest.


I forgot it was higher (although I thought it was only DC15). My 6 isn't going to help anyone this time around. I'll try again with the next person.

Are there that many people that need to do a rebuild before September 19th? There's barely enough content to get past the free rebuilds at level one!

EDIT: Oh, it's free until the 19th. So if you got to level 2 and we're unhappy with something you could change it for free before the 19th. That is possible so it makes some sense.

Hello!

So it has been a while now but I still don't have any of the PFS scenarios in my account. I have the following subscriptions, which I believe qualify me for a complimentary PFS or SFS scenario subscription:

  • Pathfinder Lost Omens
  • Pathfinder Adventure
  • Pathfinder Rulebook
  • Starfinder Roleplaying Game

My account shows I have the complimentary subscription and I have selected Pathfinder Society, but the only scenario I have is 1-00 Origin of the Open Road.

I can create a separate thread for this as well, but my order #7896137 was supposed to contain a Starfinder Rules Reference Deck and I received a Pathfinder Condition Card Deck instead. I would love to have the Rules Reference Deck put in my next subscription order.

Thank you all!


Pathfinder Adventure, Lost Omens, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I am thrilled about standalone quests and can't wait to see more of them. Finally I have content I can run for some friends on a weeknight!

To clarify, this thread is for organized play. This *forum* is for all manner of games, not just organized play.

Hi Ragashingo. There is an Age of Ashes recruitment happening for 2e right now.

Have you considered Pathfinder Society? It would be a great fit for this particular character and there are frequently games recruiting at the Cottonseed Lodge.

I’ve signed up for two of the three recruiting Age of Ashes games. Didn’t make the first one, waiting on the second one. Trying to look into more options since there’s so much interest and so few slots.

I don’t know a lot about Pathfinder Society. Where can I find more info about what it is / what it takes to join, etc?

Hello again Ragashingo. I would have a look at the Pathfinder Society Guild Guide and post in the Cottonseed Lounge discussion thread.


Pathfinder Adventure, Lost Omens, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Thinking about it more I don't think I will have time for this until after the Game day ends. It will be a couple months.


Dangit, you're right. Sorry for the confusion.


If I recall correctly the giant instinct barbarian explicitly gets access to larger weapons

EDIT:

Titan Mailer Instinct Ability wrote:
... You gain access to one weapon one size larger than you, of any weapon type otherwise available at character creation. It has the normal Price and Bulk for a weapon of its size (page 295). When wielding such a weapon in combat, increase your additional damage from Rage from 2 to 6, but you have the clumsy 1 condition (page 618) because of the weapon’s unwieldy size. You can’t remove this clumsy condition or ignore its penalties by any means while wielding the weapon.


My first rule is always to play what you want.

But if you're truly undecided I would say sorcerer or wizard sounds great


Obsidian Portal looks cool! I might check it out for my home group. Their website says they support mobile. I'm willing to try it out for this campaign for sure.


Reactions (or attacks of opportunity and immediate actions in PF1) are not perfect in PbP, but are usually managed by "retconning" things.

Generally it will be a good idea when a PC posts to state which of their reactions they will take if the trigger occurs. i.e. "Raskel will take an attack of opportunity if someone provokes, or he will use Shield Block if he takes more than 15 damage from a single attack; whichever happens first" or "if an enemy attacks someone within reach, Pally will use Retributive Strike" etc. etc.

PbP runs smoothest when the GM is allowed to roll certain things for the PCs. PF2 rules almost demand that certain things (like secret checks) are rolled by the GM.


Right, if you create a gameplay thread, then we can all create a post in that thread and then delete that post. That will add the alias we post with to the characters tab and make the game show up in our campaigns view. This is typically called "dotting in" since most players just put a "." in their post that they delete.


Unfortunately I do almost all of my posting from mobile, and roll20 is very inconvenient from mobile. I can't even view the maps unless the GM has a paid account, and even then it takes a while to load. I find that the game I'm in where the GM has a paid roll20 account I still don't look at the map often.

I would encourage you to strongly consider block initiative. Players having to wait to post until it is their turn is one of the biggest factors in making combat go slow in PBP. Most people only check in once or twice a day. If their turn doesn't come up before they check in, another whole day will go by before they post. It can turn a combat where every player posts their action on the same day to a combat where only one player posts an action per day in the most extreme case.

Google slides works really great for doing maps from every platform, and has multiple pages for maps of different areas. You can see an example by following these links for Arclord's Envy or The Confirmation.

I will be using the character template you can see on Emilio Tramonte. It looks like it is the same template that Roxxie linked.

I will create my alias before the weekend ends. Possibly by the end of today.

I'm quite impressed. Indeed it does seem to be working for 2e rules instead of the playtest now. I've purchased the app to remove the ads and support the developer in the early days of the project.

Another thing I noticed and approved of: It's PDF export is a fillable PDF, so if the program has any issues (it's young, it has some issues) or features that aren't yet included (Pathfinder Society backgrounds), you can manually fix the PDF before printing.

I noticed that also. Really, really impressive.

Honestly I would love to see this on the Windows store. Or the OSX store (if there is such a thing). I would pay for it on each platform (or just put up with the ads, since those probably make you more money anyway?).

This is cool! But also not. I'd really like to have a PDF version of the guide. The PDF navigation y'all put in your PDFs is really top knotch and I actually find it easier to browse that way (in a good PDF reader, like foxit for desktop or Xodo for mobile) than literally any website.

With that said, it is nice to have an online guide for many reasons. One of which is that actually *downloading* the latest version of the guide to a device that doesn't have it yet is a multi step process that is time consuming when I just need a quick answer.


Pathfinder Adventure, Lost Omens, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Bummer. It looks like I already need a fourth PFS2 number for Gameday, then.


Pathfinder Adventure, Lost Omens, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

So you have Bard, Monk, Sorceror... cool, I'll try to put together a Martial over the next week or so.


We use pregen stats. Typically people play *as* the pregens, but some people prefer to "reskin" the pregena as a different character.

I will be just Ezren.

All three of my PFS2 characters will be in gameday games. Can I apply the chronicle to one of them?

That's the one. There were two others but they both just ended.

I'm keeping my eye out for more to open up.


Pathfinder Adventure, Lost Omens, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Looks like you still need more players?


Pathfinder Adventure, Lost Omens, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Hi Ragashingo. There is an Age of Ashes recruitment happening for 2e right now.

Have you considered Pathfinder Society? It would be a great fit for this particular character and there are frequently games recruiting at the Cottonseed Lodge.


I should be able to make my alias and post tomorrow or day after.


Pathfinder Adventure, Lost Omens, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Bummer, I really wanted in on this one; Joana seems like a high caliber GM.

Enjoy the campaign, y'all!

It has been one character in a game at a time since time immemorial.

Yes, but whether or not that prevents you from applying pregen credit to a character that was in a scenario overlapping with the pregen being in a scenario doesn't necessarily follow from that statement either way.


Pathfinder Adventure, Lost Omens, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I thought that too but multiple people told me it works the way RedWolfe is thinking.


Pathfinder Adventure, Lost Omens, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

It looks like no one has gone past N for the Occultist? I'm particularly interested in seeing the Reliquarian rated.


Amiri is not one of the options.

I have never played a Wizard, and 2e seems like a good time to start. I will go for Ezren, but I will concede him to anyone else if they want. My backup would be Valeros.

I would prefer to wait for gameday, but I won't hold us up if there is a quorum to start now.


The way I would break it down is if I'm going to be doing a lot of downtime stuff (crafting, making scrolls, retraining) then I would go for the commissioned field agent. Otherwise, one or two consumables (that scale with level!!), a lore skill, and eventually a skill feat seems pretty great to me.

I believe that scenario is played with 5th-level pregenerated characters.

Correct. That is a 5th level scenario that can only be played with the 6 available 5th level pregens.

It grants a 5th level chronicle, although it can be downgraded to apply to a 1st level character (change the value of a treasure bundle from 10 gp to 1.4 gp). Also, you do not gain access to the boons granted on the chronicle until you reach 5th level.

Since, presumably, it will be a minute before people start reaching 5th level, is there any drawback you can see to not just applying it to a level 1?

I don't see any drawbacks.

I am interested, so I will PM you as requested, batpony.

Stiff competition here!

I am pleased to present Fuzbizzle Nokfijit Bramblequalmy. In terms of ABCs, he is an Emancipated (B) Fey-Touched Dragon-Obsessed Gnome (A) Enigma Bard (C). He uses a shortbow in combat and does useful bardy things. I have a full (or mostly full) crunch in Pathbuilder 2e that I will transfer to plain text and post here upon request or selection.

I am cross posting to other Age of Ashes campaigns with the same character.

Fluff:
How did Nokfijit become a Bard?
He wants to know everything. And he likes to share what he knows, including poetry, stories, and songs. But also lore and random facts.

What does Nokfijit look like?
He wears glasses, but he refuses to use goggles so they are always sliding down his nose. His brightly colored hair sticks in all directions, as he never combs it down. His limbs and fingers are more spindly than a typical gnome, enhancing his alien and feylike appearance.

How does Nokfijit behave?
He is somewhat flighty in social settings, but years of research has taught him how to settle down and focus on a single task. He is kind hearted when it occurs to him, but he is motivated primarily by knowledge (true neutral).

Why is Nokfijit on this adventure?
To learn more things, of course! Experiences, treasure, etc. Are nice too.

Which nation did Nokfijit grow up in? How did this nation influence them?
He was a bit of a wanderer before he was captured and ended up enslaved in Kintargo.

What does Nokfijit love?
Spicecakes. Books of all kinds. Stories about dragons.

What does Nokfijit hate?
Goggles. Hobgoblins. Chelaxian slavers.

How does the race of Nokfijit influence their views? Is Nokfijit a stereotype of a certain race? How are they different from most characters of their race?
His gnomish, fey heritage gives him an alien perspective and a powerful hunger for new knowledge. Although he seems flighty in conversation, he is actually very steadfast when he sets his mind on something. He does not frequently change his mind, nor rush into things anymore than an average human might. In these ways he is different from other gnomes, who tend to flit from interest to interest.

What is Nokfijit afraid of? Does Nokfijit have any phobias or worries?
He is terrified of being enslaved again. His time as a slave very nearly bleached him.

What is the most treasured possession of Nokfijit?
His freedom.

What are at least 5 background and concept elements for Nokfijit?
Hungry for knowledge of all kinds.
Fascinated and inspired by dragons in particular.
Has a nearly perfect memory for book knowledge, facts, and the like. But he doesn't necessarily remember things about living people around him very well--unless his brain can find a way to store them as facts that might be important on the future.

What are at least two goals for Nokfijit?
Become the most knowledge person alive.
Meet and talk to a dragon and live to talk about it.

What are at least three people that are tied to Nokfijit?
He is not close with his family.
He is fast friends with a halfling that was a slave with him. She helped him avoid the bleaching by telling him things she knew and sharing poems, stories and songs.
He has traveled in the past with a human fighter.
He is quite upset with a wizard that stole a tome from him before he could finish ingesting the knowledge in it.

What are at least three memories, mannerisms, or quirks that Nokfijit has?
He frequently has to shove his glasses back up his nose. While his hands are there, he will then rub his nostrils with the back of a hand or finger.
He distinctly remembers the moment he was made a slave. He also remembers the moment he learned of his freedom.
He holds a finger up and nods when reciting facts.

Consider me interested in a second table.


I think incredible initiative is better than that and gives you a +2 on *all* initiative checks, not just ones that use perception.

PM me if you ever decide to revisit this


I think Lore is looking fine. It is the default means of making a living and it will come up now and then.

I will probably prefer lores that aren't about a particular monster. I had a Desnan ranger in the playtest that had something like "travel lore" or "road lore."

--

Has anyone updated the PbP stat block template since the playtest? I use the PF1 and SF templates for all my characters in Evernote even when I'm playing in meatspace. Having one for my PF2 characters would be handy at GenCon this week. Worst case I guess I could print off some sheets...


1 person marked this as a favorite.

You don't have to tell me twice. :-)

At this point, I would have to create new characters (or get a replay for 1-05 to unblock my soldier) to sign up for more games. I don't think any of my race boons are available just yet, so... (I'm also probably in enough games for this gameday)

Age of Ashes is a six-part campaign designed to take a party of player characters from 1st to 20th level.

Sweet! I was hoping APs would start going to 20th level with second edition.


Pathfinder Adventure, Lost Omens, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I have two nights left to prep for gencon. I don't think I'll get a submission in time, but this campaign sounds great. Best of luck!


Pathfinder Adventure, Lost Omens, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Been chewing this one over for a bit. I am currently leaning towards Myrmidarch Magus. He follows the Laws of Man but privately thinks the rejection of the gods is overrated; however, he loves Rahadoum and the people who live there and will defend it to the death.

I am nervous about getting something in by the deadline with GenCon being this week, though.


Pathfinder Adventure, Lost Omens, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I am leaning towards Warrior Poet Samurai + either Bard or Sorcerer. Sorcerer is probably the more *powerful* option, but Bard gets so much versatility that would be useful in a solo campaign. Probably human... But I would need to look at the list more closely.

Essentially, he (or she; haven't decided yet) longs to return to his own culture and has sought to learn as much about it as possible. He feels out of place in Varisia, no matter how much Ameiko does to try to make him feel at home.

Teikoku Scion, because it fits well enough and reach Nodachi sounds cool.

Competition looks stiff!

GenCon is coming up this week. Will you be closing recruitment during or extending until after? I will be pretty busy this week with preparing, packing, traveling, con-ing, etc.
