Sounds like you have enough PCs. Good thing, too. My level 5 character is nowhere close.

As long as people are ok with it, I'll bring in Enora the arcanist.

Bad news: My only level 5-6 PC is tied up in Gameday Part 1 games and probably won't make it.

My closest option is a level 4 PC with 10 XP. I can put him to 11 after the special ends but that's not close enough.

Pregens are at levels 1, 4, 7, and 10 so none of them are in range. If I can't use a level 7 pregen I'll have to drop out. Ugh.

Start with Wizard with 16 Strength (or Dex.)
Get Fighter Dedication at level 2.
Get the Magical Striker feat at level 4.
Cast True Strike and use the Magical Striker feat to enhance your weapon.

At least that's what I've heard. I'll be playtesting Monks with Cleric Dedication to see if I can recreate my Sacred Fist idea.

Hi everyone. It sounds like you need more PCs. I can make a Ranger or a Sorcerer. Looks like we have a sorc already, so I'll make my Ranger.

CLW wands always felt like a problem with PFS, where you get 2 Prestige Points after your first adventure that can be spent on the wand. I'm in 3 Adventure Paths (Kingmaker, Giantslayer, Hell's Rebels) and we've never had easy access to a wand.

Why not make wands cost more Prestige in PFS?

If you do allow monks mystics, I'd love to try it out. I have a human monk mystic who will become a cleric of Calistria as soon as I get a chance to multiclass. I mean, pick up archetype class feats.

It's one of those things where I can't give good advice until I get to experience the system firsthand. Too many theoreticals are going around right now.

I will mention it's hard to min max a single skill. It's also impossible to bomb most skill checks, since at worst you start at a [level - 2] bonus.

Heightening spells work differently than in 1E, since you need to prepare or memorize the heightened version. At first I didn't understand it but now I realized they just wrapped the higher level spells into the basic spell, so my bard doesn't have to learn Charm Person, Charm Monster AND Mass Charm Person.

If your thread includes a color like Red or Green, the thread text will appear that color. I'm guessing a lot of your threads have a "GM Red Box" in there.

Paizo is aware of the issue and will fix it soon (TM)

Okay, I'm going to go with a human bard for this game. He's a hammy nobleman and investigator.

Another example of a red text page.

In paizo-0418.min.css, the ".red" class is applying the color red to most of the text. The thread also has "Red" in the title.

Oh, I see what's going on. Near the top, the name of the thread is in the <main> class. So in the thread I linked, for example, the main class attribute is:

The page name is used as the class wrote:

<main class="ctf online campaigns - the red arm of absalom - ongoing campaign-ctf subtier">

It contains the word "red" so the CSS applies the styling for the "red" class, which turns the text red.

I already heard another thread had the word "green" in it and that's why all of the text is green.

I don't know what's generating that class for the <main> element but it shouldn't be there.

You set the expectations clearly and you've pmed them. It's very important to maintain posting rates in PbP. Nothing hurts more than watching your more active PCs lose interest because the game isn't moving.

1) Put the absent PCs on autopilot. Let the other PCs suggest how to use them, or just automatically control them after say 2 days of no posting. Ask them for botting instructions so you know what they're doing.

2) If this is PFS, you're only screwed for this scenario. If this is a long term game, I think you need to boot those players and start recruiting replacements. Either way, you need to put them on your "nope" list and move on.

If you don't mind using a command line, you can also use pdfimages to extract all of the images from a pdf file. This is what I did before I got an Adobe subscription for one of my classes.

DavisESQ, this website intentionally adds spaces to very long links (like your Races and Classes links) unless you put them in a url tag. So if you remove the slash from the starting url tag:


You get a clickable link to .

I've updated your links, here:

A mysterious cube lies on the table.

Okay, I thought I was missing something, heh.

Do we have materials to make new 2E characters yet?

Ah, I see. Sounds like even if I could transfer it, it's not what Game Masquerade is looking for. Thanks for clarifying.

HAVE: Dhampir

WANT: Spinosaurus (or any other extraordinary companion), but I am open to other offers.

A question for this thread: I completed three scenarios. The third scenario's chronicle sheet allows me to gain a new animal companion if I present all 3.

Am I able to trade these three sheets? I guess I can write "Boon Traded Away" on my sheet or something...

(If it helps, I'm talking about the Axe Beak from Quest for Perfection.)

It's a lot more interesting than +3/+6 Skill check bonuses, that's for sure.

Thanks for the catch, I just reported a success in H.

Note there are very few tier 3 games. Most of the time you'll have to play a 1-2 or 4-5 game and get the out of tier rewards until you're level 4.

Thanks for the info. I learn something new every day.

Just so i'm absolutely clear before i solidify things beyond repair. Gunslinger is PFS legal, and it's pretty safe to assume with 18 prestige one could find a seller of firearms in Absalom in-between scenario's right?

You're a Gunslinger, so it's totally legal for you to find and purchase a firearm in PFS.

The only restriction I heard is that for PFS, you must have at least 1 level of Gunslinger to own a firearm.

Have fun!

I'd definitely playtest with unofficial PFS2 characters. It's a good way to test out bad builds.

Huh, interesting point. It does address some of my problems with skills, as the level 20 Fighter with no ranks in Knowledge(Religion) is dumber than the level 1 Cleric fresh out of school. Kind of weird that this legendary warrior still doesn't know what a zombie does.

Also, adding a flat bonus to increase enemy stats is very useful. Making monsters for my homebrew Pathfinder game is extremely daunting.

Thanks for adding this thread.

I hope no one actually thought 1e would hold up forever. I got over that when 3.5 was announced, and then a second time when Pathfinder began to consume all my 3.5 books. Let's face it here: The need to remain compatible with 3.5 was a necessary evil that is now a 10-year old albatross. I mean we still joke about the 5ft step and the "feat tax" of combat maneuver prereq feats besides Power Attack.

We're going to be playing 1e for a while when 2e comes out anyway; most of the 1e classes and features will definitely not be available when the 2e Core Rulebook comes out, and PFS will have 10 years of 1e content as 2e just gets started.

I saw the writing on the wall with Starfinder, anyway: it was clear they took 1e, updated the rules and then changed the setting to make sure it was incompatible with Swords & Sorcery so no one got confused. It was only a matter of time until they took feedback from those mechanics changes and put them back in to Pathfinder.

Man, Paizo's grown pretty big over the years, huh? Remember when they were just a publishing wing for those 3.5 Wizards?

Some ignore encumbrance, some do follow encumbrance. It's inconsistent.

I did notice when HeroLab would disagree with the pregens, but I always followed the pregen text.

Ed will continue to stumble blindly unless someone can tell him where to go (and assuming he acts normally)

Still waiting...

CORE can take resources from the Core Rulebook, Additional Web Traits and the Guide to PFS Organized Play. Anything you find in a chronicle sheet with your CORE character can also be used.

you can read the announcement here and the CORE FAQ here.

Doubtful is pretty good. Plus he will warn you if your thread is inactive. ;)
That level 6 is my highest character, so I'd have to go with a pregen.

I'll let Doubtful take the spot. Enjoy!

What's the subtier? I have a level 6 Monk/Fighter available. If that's too low, I can bring in a Core Rogue.

Oh, it's a PFS game, yeah I don't have anyone in tier. Good luck and have fun!

I'd love to join up on this, I have a Gnome plant druid/shaman I've been thinking about for a while.

Woohoo! Thanks for checking!

Mission accomplished just in time for the new year.

Happy New Year, everyone.

Happy New Years (I'm not going to post again in 4 hours, so...)

Okay, the Wizard looks good to me.

511. Reading bedtime stories to poor orphans...only for his detect scrying spell to activate. He stares into the sensors and yells "Uhhh, this is totally an evil act, I promise. Um, eeeeeevilll!"

woo hoo! We did it!

Okay, Imrijka is ready for review.

I guess I'll look at pregen monk to finish off core... nvm someone's working on it.

Inquisitor it is!

Looks like there isn't much interest in the Overflow Archives at this moment. Any requests from seasons 4-7? Looks like there is one request for The Disappeared, anyone else want to second that or give any other recommendations?

As one of the two (wow, two?) people who signed up for Overflow Archives, I'm willing to try out The Disappeared instead.

I'll definitely have more time in the next few weeks once class ends and my vacation starts.

*pokes head in*
*sees a lot of GM stars*

So I have a samsaran race boon. Would anyone be willing to trade for a Tiefling boon?

Why is there so much interest in playing core?
  • Some people want to play a scenario again without burning GM stars
  • it's an easy way for GMs to get two games for the price of one scenario.
  • Some people don't like the accumulation of extra rulebooks and want to keep it simple.
  • Also, you don't need to buy anything to play CORE.

  • The Slayer Zadim is ready to review.
