It's not a huge deal, but its been 5 months since they were added, so it would be nice if they were reportable.

I've been toying with the backstory for a new Kasathan who is either an outlaw or pirate or something of that nature and I am considering what sorts of lore reasons someone might be pushed out of their place on the Idari.

I am also toying with some naming ideas for an exiled Kasathan what I've come up with is something inspired by the bastard names in A Song of Ice and Fire. Only instead of geography it would be based on sin

So the name might be something like Altronus Blood for a murderer.

I would like some help in applying these to my planned subscription purchases for Starfinder.

If necessary, I would like to cancel my Starfinder Subscription, so I can re-up it with these vouchers applied.

Thank you.

You are summoned late at night in the middle of your sleep and called to the cramped cluttered office of Absalom's Venture Captain, Adril Hestram.

Despite him being the one to call you here he is not present yet allowing you a moment to take stock of who all is in attendance with you.

If a character has received GM credit but has yet to see play does it have 0 XP for the purposes of Capstone Boons.

We are pretty early yet but....does it seem to anyone else that auto-confirming criticals are adding a wildly swingy amount of damage to the game?

It really feels to me like the flow of any given battle is a lot less predictable and a lot more likely to go sideways. Enemies intended to present a challenge crumble under the weight of rogue crits (is it intentional that SA damage now doubles on crits?) and speedbump creatures like centipedes now can pose a life-threatening challenge. Seems like it will be hard to present a predictable level of challenge.

What's other peoples experience here?

Hello All

This has been a project I have been sitting on for a little while now, but which I am excited to begin with all of you.

The idea is to play Ire of the Storm as a little mini-campaign and use it as a lead into the Year 9 Exchange Meta-plot taking place largely in this coastal southern Garund region

My game plan:

Ire of the Storm (level 1 or 2 if you're bringing in an existing PFS character and which will take you to level 5)
Champion's Chalice Pt 1 (5.1)
Champion's Chalice Pt 2 (5.2)
Signs in Senghor (5.3)
Bloodcove Blockade (6.1)
Before the Dawn Pt 1 (6.2)*
Before the Dawn Pt 2 (6.3)*
The Ghol-Gan Heresy (7.1)

*these two are somewhat negotiable but there isn't a lot of fitting content to splice in at that tier

This should form a nice little narrative and will be run with as much connective tissue as I can really muster. If you wish to drop out at any point between scenarios that will be fine too - it shouldn't be too hard to find replacements at any given scenario break.

I would prefer this to be done in CORE, but I won't force it if there's no interest

Normally for my PFS tables I go with the customary first come first served but since this is a longer term commitment, I would like to see a little more before I choose a table. Ideally, the character will have been created with this project in mind, but if you have an existing character you are excited to play through this then that's fine too.

So for each player I would like to see:

Character:
PFS#:
Faction (if applicable):
CORE or CLASSIC:
Character Concept:
Roleplay/writing sample: Just something that tells me you'll be up to playing this character longer term than a normal PFS session.

I will be looking to choose 5-6 people.

The fourth and final day of training has come to a close at the Grand Lodge of Absalom, heralding the end of this year's Torchbearing. Pathfinders the world over attend this annual symposium to share their knowledge, teach each other new skills, and reinforce their connections across the Inner Sea and beyond. To celebrate the end of festivities, the lodge has hosted a grand banquet in the visiting agents' honor. A refreshing winter breeze blows through an open window, flickering torches and sending papers scattering. The smell of freshly baked desserts fills the air while initiates clear away the remnants of the first course.

Restful Pathfinders’ Lounge: Members Only!:
If you are a member of the Restful Pathfinders’ Lounge (by possessing the vanity of the same name from page 61 of Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Pathfinder Society Field Guide), you can attend a special private banquet that grants you the benefits of hero’s feast for the duration of Part 1. Each player character with this vanity can invite one guest (such as another PC or an animal companion) to gain the benefits, too.

During the annual Torchbearing, the Three Masters, along with other notable Pathfinders, taught a variety of seminars and panel discussions, from Golarion’s history to spellcasting techniques, and ran obstacle courses and a triathlon. Rumor has it, Janira Gavix offered an unauthorized but popular filking class for aspiring bards and other social misfits under 30--inches, not years. You also heard some salacious gossip about an exclusive, late-night VIP experience Zarta Dralneen arranged for some her favorites. According to one hungover Pathfinder who claimed to have been there, a disgruntled Drandle Dreng was turned away at the door.

Speaking of the imp, ever the social butterfly and self-appointed mentor-to-the-masses, the halfling bard Janira Gavix approaches your small group. “Hi, friends. It’s been awhile since last we met. Have you enjoyed the Torchbearing? I volunteered to organize all the classes again this year. Kreighton Shaine always said I should have been a teacher. Did you learn anything useful?”

Janira looks over her shoulder as she catches sight of another group of Pathfinders refilling their tankards at the grog bowl. “Oh, those are some more students of mine!” She bounces on her toes as she waves at the group and they wave back. “Excuse me? I’ll need to check in with them too!” Pleased that you appreciated her pedagogical efforts, she excuses herself with a smile and moves on.

Each of you should choose one skill. For the duration of this adventure, you will either treat it as a class skill or gain a +1 bonus on checks with that skill if it was already a class skill. Of course feel free - encouraged even to answer in the form of a roleplayed introduction of your character to Janira

Building a Sarcesian PC, I wondered if there were rules for damage on larger weapons.

I know in SFS 1-00 Claim for Salvation the boss character has scaled up weapons for his size so I am pretty sure its a rule but I cannot find it anywhere else

This would work best if you signed up with a level 2 character so that you can make it through all three parts properly leveled.

City of Golden Death:
I am a bit iffy on whether to do City of Golden Death on top of the first two since it assumed a party of level 5 characters and is fairly deadly so we will see how the first two parts go before forcing ourselves to soldier on.

Ideally, we will finish Crypt of the Everflame in time to get PbP VI support for Masks of the Living God as well.

If interested, please go ahead and sign up. As this is a PbP VI game, it won't actually be starting until August 21.

So I am hoping to sneak in a slot 0 run of Starfinder prior to gen con but I am not sure what the rules are for slot 0s of unreleased material provided the material gets to us in time. Just so I can feel a bit more confident going into Gen Con.

Can anyone play? Just fellow people who are under NDAs?

Apologies if there was a better place to put this.

I realize that it's already there as "Register a character" which is useful for new players, but for established players that only rarely check the site, it's the main page they are going to want to look at for say checking their reported scenarios and it's not instantly clear how to get there from either the main society page or the quick links toolbar since its present at both as a character creation button.

It's come up with a number of players of mine at least once trying to navigate the site.

It says in the text on page 59 that these new disciplines "can be taken by members of any hellknight order whenever the hellknight would gain access to a new discipline."

The wording here is a bit different that previous "any" wording which restricted you to only your 6th and 9th level disciplines. Instead this sounds like these can be take at 3rd level too.

Can I finally be a Hellknight of any order besides the two that have decent powers or am I reading something into existence that isn't there?

My name is Douglas Edwards from Concord, NC

I have been recently running a game out of the newly establish Church St Comics and More in Concord just off the main drag in downtown Concord.

So if you're in the University City area of Charlotte or the outlying communities north of the city and looking for a game a bit closer than Uptown or Matthews we play every other Sunday at 1:30 for right now.

Our Warhorn is here and will have any future changes:
https://warhorn.net/events/corps

Our group also runs games out of Rock Hill, SC and out of Matthews but if there is interest up north here I can add games at different times/days if the Sunday doesn't work for prospective players so just consider this a feeler.

When devils slay the knightly leader of Arwyll Stead and orcs from the Hell's Fury tribe attack the town, all hope seems lost for the brave people living on Lastwall's border. The coincidental arrival of the mysterious half-orc Vegazi also raises unsettling questions, and it's up to the heroes to make sense of these events and end the Hell's Fury tribe's threat to Arwyll Stead once and for all. What does Vegazi have to do with the raiders' diabolical plot? Who will rally Arwyll Stead now that the town's icon has been cut down? And who is the mastermind orchestrating the orc tribe's alliance with devils from beyond?

Hello All!

I am looking to run an ongoing game using the Daughters of Fury Supermodule. I will be running it for PFS credit BUT this is a sort of unique scenario in that you can run the scenario with any level 3 character you want and apply the credit to a totally different character.

Level: 3

Races: Any of the PFS legal races are instantly acceptable (that is Core plus Kitsune, Tengu, Wayang, Nagaji). Anything else will be evaluated on a case by case basis

Stat Generation: 20 point buy.

Classes, Archetypes and Feats: No 3PP, no item creation, No Flaws.2 Traits.

Posting Expectations: I tend to be a pretty relaxed GM, I will update a bunch Tuesday through Saturday but Sunday and Monday I tend not to be around my computer.

I will let this run for about a week or so before I close off recruitment.

In a game where literally evil gods like Zon-Kuthon are legal options for PCs, as well as Demon Lords, Archdevils, Giant Deities, Goblin Hero-Gods, Ancient Osirion Gods, and even the freaking Eldest why is a group that is a true neutral nature catch-all off limits?

My guess is that the Green Faith exist as a (rival?) faction within Golarion, but it just seems really silly that they're off limits when they're one of the few deities to have more than one of the elemental domains. So I was just curious as to the motives.

Context:

I admit this is somewhat selfishly motivated by the fact that I wanted to play a character with both the Animal and Fire domains with a "defender of nature" sort of vibe while still being able to fill the cleric role in a PFS party and that thats something that only possible through Green Faith (which strikes me as a more normal concept and the one I was actually going for) and worship of the Goblin Hero-God Zarongel (which cleaves so far afield of both my concept and the Society that I don't really want to do it just to have the powers I want).

I recognize that anyone who really wants to RP this sort of character is way more likely to choose Druid and that maybe that's what I should do but its sort of silly that I have to choose to be a less effective healer to play the character I want to play.

There is the Ability in question:
At 2nd level, the cavalier can spend a standard action to extol his own accomplishments and battle prowess. He receives Dazzling Display as a bonus feat. He does not need a weapon in hand to use this ability.

And for Disheartening Display it specifically states: Prerequisite(s): Dazzling Display, Weapon Focus, base attack bonus +6, proficiency with chosen weapon.

Which would seem to indicate that Weapon Focus is only a requirement insofar as it is related to your chosen weapon. The Order of the Cockatrice specifically sidesteps this nuance what's more can use it as a standard action.

I have a build that I am working on where obviously if I can skip taking weapon focus I would like to, but I am not sure if that's possible.

Second Seekers (Luwazi Elsbo)

Pathfinder Starfinder Maps, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I had a corner case come up tonight wherein an orc who had already been affected by a Dazzling Display with hit with a Fear Phantom's Horrifying Strike.

For reference:

Dazzling Display wrote:
Benefit: While wielding the weapon in which you have Weapon Focus, you can perform a bewildering show of prowess as a full-round action. Make an Intimidate check to demoralize all foes within 30 feet who can see your display.
Demoralize with Intimidate wrote:


If you are successful, the target is shaken for one round. This duration increases by 1 round for every 5 by which you beat the DC. You can only threaten an opponent this way if it is within 30 feet and can clearly see and hear you. Using demoralize on the same creature only extends the duration; it does not create a stronger fear condition.
Horrifying Strike wrote:
If the phantom hits a creature with a slam attack, that creature must succeed at a Will Saving Throw (DC = 10 + 1/2 the phantom's Hit Dice + the phantom's Charisma modifier) or be shaken for 1d4 rounds. Multiple attacks against the same creature do not cause the creature to become frightened.

It seems to me that Horrifying Strike is not meant to stack with itself and neither is demoralize. The question is whether they can stack with each other. My inclination is the RAW, they do stack and cause frightened since the rules simply say that this effect does not stack with itself.

But RAI, I feel like they shouldn't because those are both written in such a way to prevent such a strong effect at such an early level and this shouldn't be allowed.

My question for all of you is how should I have adjudicated this (RAW vs RAI) and is my RAW even correct in the first place. I ended up allowing it since it was PFS and thus RAW is king, but I have my doubts about my ruling.

The players weren't even going for this combo, it was just something that ended up happening thanks to the abilities at my weekly PFS table but I thought it raised an interesting corner case.
