Hello,

I wanted to check on my order, as it is still Pending while the books are all available to purchase from the site now. Last month I didn't get my order as it was Pending in perpetuity, I managed to get it sidecarted to this order instead. I'm wondering if that's what is holding up the order.

Thanks in advance!

I don't think #2 and #3 are quite the same thing. They're related, but not the same.

For example, I'm playing Against the Aeon Throne with some people who really do enjoy the occasional heist and infiltration game. But the blurb for AtAT doesn't really tell you much. So they came up with a Shobhad and a Bantrid. Suffice to say, we're not doing all that great at the whole Disguise aspect.

Thank you for illustrating the reason I wanted to discuss GM created Player's Guides. In this case, informing the players that the AP puts a premium on characters that can "pass for humans" (with disguise) before they become invested in a character concept.

That was one of the primary reasons I created that guide for my players. I didn't want them to invest in a character and suddenly have a giant roadblock. I wanted to give them that info up front. If they decided to then make a non-human character, at least they were aware of some difficulties up ahead.

Another thing I added was info about the settlement. This was a way to introduce them to the starting area, give them some info they may have already, and get them somewhat invested in the settlement.

Unfortunately, the Starfinder APs don't get their own player's guides, so I created my own. There are some rules that are specific to my game, but most of the information should be useful for any game. There are some minor spoilers in there that not every GM may want to give out, so you want to read through to make sure it works for your game.

I bought the very first Pathfinder Bestiary and Rise of the Runelords pawn set when they came out (I was running that game at the time). I really like the quality of the pawns, but hadn't a need to purchase more since I have a ton of fantasy miniatures now.

I have a lot of Star Wars miniatures, but they just don't always work for what I need in Starfinder. I've purchased every pawn set they've released for Starfinder so far.

The Alien Archive ones are going to be your best purchases. They included a lot of bases, and cover a lot of different aliens and ships. The Core Book and Pact Worlds ones are a good supplement if you're looking for more.

The AP ones are great if you're running/playing that AP, otherwise, you can skip those. They tend to have a lot of named NPCs and specific threats from that AP.

Best advice is take a look at what the product offers in terms of pawns to see what fits your game.

Thank you Sam.

I guess I incorrectly said the order was processed correctly. In my orders for this it does show AP 145 as cancelled, and AP 144 should be good. However, the order is still pending from early July.

At this point, would you be able to "sidecart" AP 144 with the rest of my August subs?

Thanks for all the help!

I recently received my PDF for Dawn of Flame book 3 Sun Divers.

Most of the images are awful quality, fuzzy and pixelated.

The PDFs don't print out nicely, either. Foxit Reader likes to flip the borders and sometimes images upside down (but that's been happening since Aeon Throne). Adobe Reader gets the borders and images fine, but the text has random solid black boxes in it, obscuring the words, or at best, bold and out of line "L"s and "I"s.

Is there any chance the PDF can be fixed?

Thanks in advance.

I mostly ran Howl of the Carrion King as written, with stats adjusted to Pathfinder. Overall, it wasn't too challenging, but my players did a good job of altering encounters in their favor.

I'm utilizing the Monster Codex for the second book. There are a lot of good gnolls and gnoll encounters in there. That should up the challenge without too much work on my end.

As for treasure, there isn't much of an opportunity to purchase or sell until the end of the first book. The fourth and fifth books take them away, so there's no buying or selling there as well. I wouldn't worry about player wealth too much.

Since you're a mythic character, just pick the universal path ability:

Pierce the Darkness (Sp): You gain permanent darkvision with a 60-foot range, as the universal monster ability. If you possess darkvision, the range increases by 60 feet.

I came up with the following weapon adjustments:

Cyclone (scimitar going to a barbarian)
1st-4th: +1 enhancement
5th-7th: +1 mighty cleaving
8th-9th: +2 mighty cleaving
10th-11th: +2 keen mighty cleaving
12th: +3 vorpal keen mighty cleaving

Granting cleave, extra crit range, and vorpal because why not? She likes to hit things and kill them, so this should help.

Gale (mace going to a cleric/bard [detective])
1st-4th: +1 enhancement
5th-7th: +1 quenching
8th-9th: +2 quenching
10th-11th: +2 quaking* quenching
12th: +3 speed quaking* quenching
*as quaking, but replace trip with dirty trick.

Quenching will help with the upcoming fire-types, Quaking sort of fits with the "Sand" theme of the weapon, though I was thinking more along the lines of blasting sand up to blind opponents, or shifting the sand to engulf them, etc. For the most part, dirty trick works, though I think I may remove the sickened part of it. She likes the idea of being a support character, so disabling enemies, even momentarily, should fit in well.

The player that would get Sirocco (weapon of Wind and Fire, Pazhvann) is new to this game, and playing an Alchemist. I'll have some time to find his play style with the character and try to get a weapon adjusted for him.

Here is at least a plain vanilla Maelstrom that is in line with Tempest.

The issue here for you is that you've allocated a weapon to a sorcerer, and I know when I play a sorcerer, I don't like to hit things with a melee weapon.

Great ideas, thank you!

I know, giving a sorcerer a weapon is very odd, but I like what you did with it. I think that will get a lot more use!

Edit: I had a thought. You're correct that making a quarterstaff more caster focused makes no sense for a monk to wield. I'm going to look into changing Davashuum to a staff magus. Since this weapon in particular is gained so late in the story, I think I'll disregard the level progression and just go with the abilities it has, like you mentioned.

Hello, I was going through the face cards products and noticed one was missing. Dungeon Dwellers Face Cards does not appear anywhere under the cards section: http://paizo.com/pathfinder/accessories/cards

It should be listed under the Face Cards subcategory here: http://paizo.com/pathfinder/accessories/cards/faceCards

It should be listed under All Products and Available Now, since it appears to be in stock: http://paizo.com/products/btpy8x9y?Pathfinder-Cards-Dungeon-Dwellers-Face-C ards

@justaworm I haven't statted them out yet. They just entered the battle market and snuck some slaves out. I expect next session will see the big battle with Kardswann. Not a problem if you don't have time, I know what that's like.

@Reverse thanks for the info on the weapons. Really great ideas there and I'll certainly be stealing some of them :) This will give me a great start.

Based on some forum suggestions, I changed the concept of the Moldspeaker to be Vardishal’s spirit fused with his weapon. I’m taking it a step farther, having the PCs move towards becoming the new Templars. My goal is that each one will receive one of the Templars’ weapons, which their spirits will be fused with.

I already have Tempest statted out, so I’m looking for suggestions on the other weapons. I’d like them to be unique from each other, but usable against upcoming enemies. I’m also interested in what forms some of these weapons could take, notably for the Priest and Sorcerer.

Thinking about changing the Insight ability to a +1 at levels 1-7, +2 8-11, and +3 at 12+, maybe more beyond)

Tempest, FALCHION of Wind and Rain (Vardishal) (for a Ranger)
Languages Aquan, Common, Ignan
Insight (Su) wielder of Tempest receives flashes of Vardishal’s memories, this results in a +1 bonus on Int-based skill checks.
Level 1-4: acts as +1 enhancement
Level 5-7: acts as +1 frost
Level 8-9: acts as +2 frost
Level 10-11: acts as +2 fire outsider bane frost
Level 12: acts as +3 fire outsider ban icy burst

Cyclone, SCIMITAR of Wind and Thunder (Kardswann) (for a Barbarian)
Languages Auran, Common, Ignan
Insight (Su) wielder of Cyclone receives flashes of Kardswann’s memories, this results in a +1 bonus on Str-based skill checks.
Level 1-4: acts as +1 enhancement
Level 5-7: ?
Level 8-9: ?
Level 10-11: ?
Level 12: ?

Sirocco, weapon of Wind and Fire (Pazhvann) (for a Priest, uses a Lt Xbow as a weapon)
Languages Protean, Common, Ignan
Insight (Su) wielder of Sirocco receives flashes of Pazhvann’s memories, this results in a +1 bonus on Wis-based skill checks.
Level 1-4: acts as +1 enhancement

I received the order today, and everything was in it, so that's not the problem. The problem I have is with the packaging.

I ordered a mini (Schir Demon) and it was tightly wrapped in a plastic bag and compressed within the box. The base was vertical, one of the legs was completely off the base, and once I opened it, the other leg came off the base. I can glue it, so it isn't too big of a deal, but Paizo may want to rethink the way they package miniatures.

The second problem I have is with the Emerald Spire book. I'm giving it as a gift, since I already have the version from the Kickstarter. The book is curved and the back has several lines that bulge out. Hard to explain, but its as if it was gouged from the inside and the cover was bulged out in several lines. It is something I'd expect as a Non-Mint product.

I'm really not one to complain, but since half of my order was "damaged", I felt I needed to say something.

The Interactive Maps are pdfs, so they should work the same. However, I haven't used them for VTTs, so I'm not positive.

Looking at the Rise of the Runelords one I have, you'd probably want to do some cropping before importing them.

Liberty's Edge

Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

If you subscribe to the adventure path, you get a physical copy, a pdf copy, and interactive maps for the issue. At some point after the AP finishes, they release a compilation of these interactive maps.

Take a look here for some previous maps: Interactive Maps

I was catching up on some web fiction that I've missed and noticed a couple issues.

#1 On the web fiction list (http://paizo.com/pathfinder/tales/serial) the link for A Knightly Mission links to Chapter One, unlike the other links.

#2 Very minor, but at the end of Queen Sacrifice Chapter Four "Coming Next Week" isn't bolded like it is on other chapters.

Thanks!

I like Obsidian Portal. I've used it to help keep track of NPCs, items, and storylines for several games. The biggest problem is getting your players on board. At best, I've had half the players of any given game use it. The other half either never create an account, or never check it.

I was able to setup everything I needed using a free player account. The GM fee unlocks some nice features, but as I was never able to get it used regularly, I never bothered.

A Mwangi jungle exploration novel is right around the bend, and I'm looking forward to it almost as much as you probably are.

I'm not aware of any Arabian style novels in the pipeline, although you'll see touches in the novels of James Sutter. Allow me to suggest a few books just outside of Pathfinder Tales for Arabian Nights action: My other series, starting with The Desert of Souls and continuing on with The Bones of the Old Ones and The Waters of Eternity, and Saladin Ahmed's Throne of the Crescent Moon.

Excellent! Thank you for the reply, I'll have to add those suggestions to my reading list. I've read Engraved on the Eye by Saladin Ahmed, that was a nice collection of short stories.

Hello,

I selected to start my AP subscription with #79 - Mummy's Mask part 1. However, I just noticed that my subscription page also lists AP #78 - Wrath of the Righteous #6.

I just want to make sure that I'm going to get the correct AP (#79) and not the extra one.

I've always liked the sha'ir class, but never had much opportunity to play it. A few years ago I had the chance in a 3.5 game and used the update from a Dragon Magazine.

It didn't last long.

Since it was based off of a Wizard, there wasn't much I could do while I was waiting for spells, aside from being knocked around. At early levels, I'd be lucky if I could actually get a spell off. Bad luck on rolls meant I had to wait until combat was over until I received a spell. It is a great concept, it just doesn't work well for this system.

I've been contemplating making sha'ir an archetype of sorcerer. I'd like to keep the gen and some sort of check, though. I'd consider something to this effect:

Round 1: Send gen out to fetch a spell, make check.
Round 2: If check succeeds, cast spell as normal. If check fails, re-roll check.
Round 3: If check previously failed, but reroll succeeds, cast spell as normal.

It may take a bit longer to cast, but not drastically so, such as the 1d6 roll. It would just add a round before you could cast the spell, assuming your check succeeds.

Another option would be to include the casting action (move, full) in Round 1:

Round 1: Send gen out to fetch a spell (action = same action to cast the spell), make check.
Round 2: If check succeeds, spell is cast at the beginning of turn, you still have your actions for Round 2.

This would essentially make every spell a full-round casting spell. In most cases, it would take longer to cast, in few cases it would be quicker. I would see this as a class benefit: able to cast some spells quicker. I don't think that would be too broken, though I could be wrong.

First off, I'm not talking about pirating scenarios, etc.

In my local PFS group my friend and I take turns GMing. However, in the case that more than one table of players might show up, the "off-week" GM has the scenario printed just in case he needs to run it. We've been running the Intro series, so purchasing scenarios hasn't been an issue yet.

I couldn't find any info in the Guide or the forums here to answer my question, so here it is. Is it legal for me to print out 2 copies of the scenario and give one to the "off-week" GM if we need to run a second table, or would he have to purchase it in order to run the second table?

Aside from just a local concern, I guess the same situation would apply to con games as well. Does the con GM need to have purchased the scenario in order to run it, or as long as it is available there can they do so?

Thanks!
