As I don't want to crowd the forum as it is a question about the same thing but different.

I bought the 12 pt boon allowing be to start at 2nd lvl. The 30gp is that total or do I also get the gp I would normally get for starting at 1st level as you do the math you are losing out on around 15 gp

Liberty's Edge

Have Master Experimenter

Would like
Either Dhamphier or Samsaran?

Liberty's Edge

Would be on Roll20wHangout.
Campaign mode with sheets given at each level break.
Every other Saturday evening Central Standard time with group agreement.
Will post to Warhorn once I have book one set up. Look here and Discord for further updates.

I kinda like it. Limits general magic item use . No more having players with Backpack full of every item under the sun.It also has the side effect of making the cleric a must have for most parties as you will not be able to be sitting around guzzling multiple potions of CLW or slapping each other with wands of CLW until you are at full health.

Plus, While you may think it may short change fighters it does make the Paladin an almost Juggernaut. I do not like that the Primary for it is Strength,should be Charisma. Do not know what the Devs where thinking.

I don't think reinforcing the "Tim/Jim" paradigm is fair to everyone involved, especially if those players don't want to be a Tim/Jim. Mandating a specific class because the game requires you to have it is very horrible design, and it's something in PF1 that I hated in regards to AP design. Even mandating a specific role like healing is bad because it's a similar manner of shoehorning. Having options to function without a dedicated healer player is really the best thing, because it lets players who don't want a dedicated healer play what they want without being shoehorned into the "Tim/Jim" paradigm.

The typical Fighter/Rogue/Wizard/Cleric requirement (which is a Martial/Skill Monkey/Full Arcane/Full Divine group) is bad because it means you can't really play anything other than those classes. I mean, Fighter can be replacable because of how generic they are, but Rogues are more difficult (Bards and Rangers are passable, but about it), and good luck trying to replace Wizards or Clerics with something equivalent (Sorcerer/Oracle, one of which wasn't released until a book later). However, the point is the parenthetical composition above cannot really be changed and be fair.

I mean, the first third of the RotRL AP is practically unsurvivable without God Saves or Cleric features (no, not even Oracles or Sorcerers could cut it due to reduced progression and lack of Channeling), which is just bad design all around.

But you have to be honest in 1st ed the cleric was virtually a non factor. With the potions and wands floating around there was no use for them. Thisis still playtest, can be fixed. But I have only been playing PF for about 3 years and I was dumbstruck when people asked me why I wanted to "waste" my time playing a cleric. I fully understood, I rarely did any healing using my spells just tapping people with wands until I got to mid level.

Okay was looking at a feat for my Occultist(BattleHost) He took an armor as his Panoply bond. So the armor per the description is immune to the broken condition.If I add the feat Fortified armor training ,that allows me to negate a crit for giving my armor the broken condition,then by the way I read he is basically immune to crits as long as the armor is on him.

Liberty's Edge

Still sitting pending? Come on guys.

Liberty's Edge

simple question,can the be used in the core campaign?

Liberty's Edge

Placed on Feb 2 I called on Feb 13 was told 1 fig of order was holding up and they would split it out. Rest of order is still sitting in pending status? Is this normal practice from you people?

Liberty's Edge

A bloatmage miniature. Can not seem to be able to find one to fit the look. Can anyone help me?

Liberty's Edge

Wow , that really makes my rouge useful in so many more ways now.

Liberty's Edge

no the alchemical weapon ones from UE and AA

Liberty's Edge

As long as you have the fame and gold can anyone use/buy them?

Liberty's Edge

Has anyone tried to do something like this with the Pathfinder world?

Liberty's Edge

Playing eyes of the ten
Our make up was
Paladin of Iomede(me) ,Life Oracle of Cayden,Barbarian/Cleric,2 Wizards. First round of every combat the one wizard went to neg hit points. Became a running joke that we basically didn't count on him forthe first 4 encounters.

Liberty's Edge

I have a pistolero with rapid reload and lightning reload using academical how many shots does he get per round at level 14? Using a pistol

Liberty's Edge

Character classes are suitable for each AP? Including the variant and Prestige?

Liberty's Edge

Can anyone give me a rundown of what maps are needed to run the full ap besides those from the folio pack or are they all unique?

Too many Kineticist. They do too much damage and do it way too often.
I really do not think Pazio play-tested that book well and the people who run PFS rushed it into play too quick, the classes are way unbalancing.I mean you get fly as a SLA that can never be dispelled? Don't give me the bull about burn being a limiting factor because of the short time frame of most PFS scenarios. That usually never comes into play,ever. I have seen Kinect at mid level deal out over 150 points of damage a round for 2-3 rounds in a row and that is with no crits.

Liberty's Edge

I ran a scenario that I already did but I am using Expanded Narrative. I am wondering how do I not this so I get credit ?

Liberty's Edge

Can this be done with online gaming? Say I am playing at a local cafe and purchase product. If I show receipt does it count?

My favorite to my surprise is my Paladin,ie John Wayne in Plate.
Being the guy with the stick up the butt trying to keep everyone in line is too much fun then add in one of the most unbalanced oaths,against fiends with painful anchor. Nothing funnier than the GM pulling his hair out in King of Old Azlant trying to figure stuff out. or When the Devil
He is fighting is trying to escape by teleport giving you the finger then collapsing at your feet. I just figured out with just all of his buffs he can take out an adult dragon with max damage,lol

Liberty's Edge

I did eyes of the ten with my Pally and I think he took at most 20 Hp the entire course of the scenarios. He Killed 1 purple worm and 2 Stone Golems in one encounter without getting hit.

Liberty's Edge

Yeah I just looked and with full buff I can theoretically kill an adult in one round.

Liberty's Edge

Paladin's I think are also able to last longer in combat,ie better AC.
Iwould like to see a showdown tween a lvl 14 Barb against my Pally.

Liberty's Edge

The Paladin or the BArbarian?
I know the barbarian get all the love but The more I play my high level Paladin I am thinking that the stick up the butt guy is the one that the bad guys really don't want to see in front of them.
My Paladin has the ultimate ruin the GM days feat-Painful Anchor. I love it when the Big ole devil is getting beat down ,his HP are down to where he goes to teleports out, as he cackles to the the group that he will be back and hunt them forever there is a flash of light and he is laying in a heap at the feet of the Paladin.

Liberty's Edge

When I ran through this my Gm almost called it due to my character, a Oath against fiends Paladin. Made the Xill encounter almost stop dead in the tracks. If I was one level higher it would have been worse,painful anchor.

Liberty's Edge

Is HQ assignments and Badges dropping soon?

Liberty's Edge

Congrats to Mr Manning. One of the best online GMs around.

Liberty's Edge

Whats the ruling on using this in PFS online play?

Liberty's Edge

Can they use racial only teamwork feats?

Dealing with a player Half orc Scald has a dip in Bloodrager too the Archetype that let him get companion. He uses it for his amplified rage power. Is that legit?

captnchuck67 - yeah, I wish I could offer it on a wider basis, but I just don't have the time or energy to do that. But it sounds like you could also use the tables that Nullpunkt is pooling, which I highly commend.

Darius - we'll keep you in mind!

Shifty - not sure. Jesse's more the one to do with scheduling, and the fact that Paizocon and Gencon are coming up means that scheduling is going to be awkward.

James I have started and It is not as hard as it seemed at first. it just took practice

Liberty's Edge

Muser I will give you that.I think one of the things that makes PFS in general get longer to run combat wise as the characters advance is the fact that the GM almost never knows what he is facing game to game, esp when you are dealing with conventions. Would it be feasible for the players of the big cons to submit their characters before the event so the GMs can make sure they are legal and know what they are facing? In the world of internet should not be too hard. I don't know how Pazio does it at cons but I think to make things faster game wise players should have to have their characters approved at HQ a slot or so before their game removing that from the GM.

Liberty's Edge

All I know it was very informative. Lots of reveals. especially with regard to Aspis agents and dealing with them. The Seeker Arc sounds fun. I think though the thinking that high level combat lasts hours is a fallacy. Players by that time know their characters inside out, the reason they last long is the GM does not know how those characters work.
Case in Point My Paladin has Oath against Fiends. I played him in King Xeroes of Old Azlant. He almost broke the scenario at one point. The GM had to stop the game and let us take a break while he tried to work around my ability. Same when he was in Bonekeep,. I always tell before the game any of my characters funky abilities or gear. I do that because I GM and hate when a play springs things on me.

Hey everyone! The Online VOs have been rather quiet recently, and those who know me know that I don’t like being quiet when it comes to PFS, so I wanted to give a heads up as to what we have in store coming up.

------

I want to highlight two conventions coming up. The first one is F-G Con (Paizo thread) – it’s happening this weekend, April 8th to 10th, and it will be featuring a number of Pathfinder Society games, including running 6-97 Siege of Serpents on Saturday. There’s still some slots left in the special if you want to try out Fantasy Grounds, along with a couple slots remaining in other games.

Another con to keep in mind is Roll20 Con – a 24 hour convention happening on June 3rd. We haven’t been able to submit events yet, but we will be running PFS that day, so save the date!

-----

One other thing I want to talk about is a pet project of mine. One of the roles I’ve built myself into over the past couple of years is one that makes it easier for GMs to run scenarios, and this is an issue that online play has more than most. Whereas a physical GM can just needs a couple physical materials and they’re ready to run a game, online GMs have the extra step that we have to create a table in whichever VTT we use. For those who are not familiar with extracting maps and creating tokens, this can seem daunting, and really, I would prefer a new GM to online take their first game to learn the GM interface without having all the frustration of learning how to build a table. In addition, some people have trouble building tables in general, or don’t have time to build a table, but are still good GMs who we want running online.

So there’s some interesting complications of Online Play and GMing. Fortunately, I’m in a position to help.

I’ve been building the tables for the new scenarios every month since I try to run them soon after they come out....

That is exactly what I was asking for , just one a more wider basis.

I don't see how anyone "pulled" something on you last year?

Tier 1 filled ahead of you. It happens. There is a very limited roster for HQ volunteers.
We have people bail right before the con. It happens. For most, real life is more important than playing games.
We tried to find replacements. It happens. When volunteers cancel, those roles still need to be filled.
As far as the room, that is not Paizo's doing. We were told that once the reservation names were submitted to the convention and processed, we could not change them even if the person cancelled their plans. We could consolidate people, but not add names. All that meant is if tier 1 volunteers cancelled in groups of four, we could cancel the room reservation.
There is not much Paizo or the PFS organizers can do about this situation.

I would have gotten another hotel room. I didn't ask Pazio for cash. I asked for a boon or something else in that vein. you know a little show of appreciation for me dropping everything at last minute and helping them out.

Indeed, I could have phrased it better! Chalk it up to a Monday.

I volunteered to be a level 1 HQ as I was new to PFS and wanted to help and learn last year. I been in the hobby from 1982. Have done similar stuff at other cons before,ie working booths handing out tickets and other stuff.

Was told not needed was like okay. Then 2 weeks before Gen Con I was contacted and told "Hey,we had people bail on us would you do the level 1 but we can't give you the hotel room." I was like um can you compensate me any other way and was told no. So I was like sorry but can not help you guys out.

still waiting to see if I was accepted. I just hope Paizo does not pull on me what they did last year.

Liberty's Edge

Yeah it would be nice if they would bring back some of the older oop stuff for those of us who messed up and did not start playing right away

Liberty's Edge

shard seance I get the one part and you get the one ability but then there is this thrown in

A medium can invite his allies to participate in his
seance—shared seance (see page 31) and [ /b ]certain spirit powers
affect other participants.[ b ]

so that means no matter what level the Medium is if they channel a Champion the others only get a +2 to damage rolls?

Liberty's Edge

If Pazio is really wanting to make money why not use more of their maps instead of the one offs? I mean if you put at least one Flip/Map pack per scenario it would generate revenue along with the cost of the scenario itself.

Liberty's Edge

But the guide says if you reach a certain age you die and are retired from play

Liberty's Edge

Do we track it for age purposes?
How much game time is between scenarios? I play sometimes 2 games in the same week with same character. I can understand if it is a linked but how about other ones?

Liberty's Edge

thanks,
Yeah when Realm works comes out a lot of questions will be answered or not. Lot of data being crunched right now I take it.

Liberty's Edge

because I am a Nerd/Geek/curious.
But is there a list of what Venture Captains are in what Lodges?Not the little ones but the Big/medium city ones?

Liberty's Edge

What does this passage mean:
The target religion must be determined at the weapon’s creation and cannot be altered.
Do you designate a specific god or gods? I am trying to add it to my weapon in Hero lab,yes asking over there . I am getting an error when I put in my Diety that it needs a Domain?

Liberty's Edge

Where do I find it?

Liberty's Edge

I understand. I will start enforcing it from now on. Just wanted to be sure before I charged him I killed it 3 times others have done it more. I have only started to have bad guys react to its presence indoors.
