Does this mean no more OffWorld Designs shirts? I do not shop Amazon so it will make me sad if I can't continue to get shirts.

Plus the artwork placement on some of these is really...off looking.

Added an item to my sidecart that I changed my mind and wanted to ship, but when I did it took my Lost Omens World Guide that was on backorder and added it to my Cart. I tried to remove it to add it back and now I just poofed it.

I tried adding the book back in, but it doesn't show it as apart of my subscription.

My words did not come out well in my cold-induced stupor yesterday, I apologize.

What I am wondering is how do I make sure I still get my subscription copy of Lost Omens World Guide when it comes back in stock with the pdf, because right now if I try and add it back it doesn't show as part of the subscription.

Yay! Finally on the site. Ended up not waiting and had a friend pick one up at Gencon. This pin turned out great!

Very exciting! I am hopeful this will help get some of our PFS regulars interested!

I know this is a 2 month old post, but for those interested, my friend got a picture of the pin at GenCon.

(Picked me up one too, so excited)

Hope they are in the store soon but for now here is a pic: Imgur - Pin

TT____TT I am eagerly awaiting July 1st, as the nearest free RPG day to me was over 130 miles away! I want to GM both of these asap! They both look like such fun.

I will still be playing Pf1 for a very long time at least in a homebrew setting, I've invested way too much into it just to let those poor books collect dust on a shelf. I spoke it over with the co-runner of our local PFS group and we are going to be doing Pf1 scenarios for some time. We figure once there is a good bulk of scenarios we will probably slowly switch over to Pf2 but still have "legacy" nights to play Pf1 scenarios.

While I like the idea of not wasting paper, I am against a digital-only solution.

The reality is that many games already never get reported online, or are reported incorrectly. Increasing the number of things that need to be reported will only make for more opportunities to get things wrong.

As a GM, I don’t need the extra burden of reporting detailed data, and dealing with players who dispute the online record. As a player, I don’t want my characters’ rewards to rely on the reporting accuracy of someone that I may never see again.

As someone waiting on two conventions worth of missing stuff as both a player & a GM I concur with this sentiment.

Thank you guys for all your help. I have set up a session zero to go over character creation and outline what will and will not work with the campaign and what campaign traits would work well.

It's funny, I was scrolling around eBay when I saw Starfinder faction pins, thought they were fake but sure enough, here they are. I have not even seen an announcement about these yet.

Woo! Been waiting since Starfinder came out for new faction pins to add to my collection.

Can we just take a moment and appreciate the fact that we can continue to play First Edition in Society play for many years to come. Still so many scenarios left to play....

Quote:

Can I still play First Edition scenarios?

Yes. We recognize that many of you have not yet finished all 250+ First Edition scenarios, and we're not taking them away! Players will be able to purchase, play, and report classic scenarios with their First Edition characters indefinitely. Even though we will stop creating new First Edition scenarios after July 2019, we expect to see them offered at conventions and enjoyed by Pathfinders for years to come.

On the same note, can't wait to see the new beginner geared evergreens for Second Edition PFS play. The Confirmation is one of my favorites to run, complete with custom painted minis just for it. Hope whatever replaces it is just as fun.

About half my party has painted minis, and half my party has unpainted. But only like two of us have minis that match the character we are actually playing. My husband who plays a human monk in one campaing, and a tengu alchemist in another, uses a mini that is a kobold in a fancy hat and big boobs who looks like she belongs to the red had society. For Starfinder my combat drone is played by a Baymax TsumTsum.

Yeah maybe read the FAQ before asking LOL. Thanks mate.

No problem, I figured if I can jump in and help someone with info might as well save them the trouble, seeing as it was a lot of info to read through :)

Can we get a list of the classes they chose as core?

The Second Edition rulebook includes all of the core classes from the First Edition Core Rulebook, plus the alchemist.

Oracle I hope comes out not far behind release.

Additional question: Will this new edition advance the timeline of Golarion?

To quote the FAQ: Will the timeline of the Pathfinder campaign setting be advanced?

Since the setting's earliest days, we have been advancing the in-game year with each real-world year. This isn't changing, so at the 2019 launch of Second Edition, the in-world year will be 4719 Absalom Reckoning.

Scarab Sages

Pathfinder Lost Omens, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Man-o-man, hope I will not have to wait long after release to play my favorite class seeing as Oracle was not apart of core.

Can't wait for those preorders to come up, now off to listen to the Podcast!

I am both upset and excited at the same time.
...but only upset because I just dumped a lot of money into material for the Society group that I co-run twice a week.

God knows I'm picking up the new versions, on the bright side, I can stay on top of releases instead of coming into a system already established and having to play catch up.

Excited to see other Red Dwarf fans here. I have yet to see the new season yet.
I was pretty stoked when I found out they made an actual RPG game for it. I actually picked up the books here on Paizo's site. Sadly I can't get enough friends interested in it to actually play.

Thanks for the advice Urath.
I would not have even thought about how older AP's would be impacted by the newer content, I appreciate it.

I am running my first adventure path in campaign mode, and my experienced players asked me what restrictions I am putting on them for character creation. (I have both inexperienced players and players more experienced than I am both in this party)

A majority of my GM experience comes from Pathfinder Society, so it is something I have not really had to think about.

A lot of the homebrew I have been in have been things like no gunslingers or evil characters, only can be core races, cannot be core races (that is an interesting one), ect.

Is there something I should watch out for and limit just to not overwhelm the new players or myself?

Any suggestions or advice would be appreciated.

Holy hand grenades,this is awesome. I can't wait to try this out. I was thinking of typing the boons up and printing them off playing card size to make them easier to handle like I do my spell lists, but this idea works way better!
