Data in STtNG brought up all of these questions too repeatedly, is he alive, does he have a soul, is he a thinking sentient being or just a computer made to look human-ish? Androids were presented earlier in Iron Gods and Bestiary reprints to make the Pathfinder race and all the basic info stays the same in Starfinder. Some might argue they are not living beings, but since many of the spells mechanically work the same on them as they do living player races, the game assumes they are alive.

The Exchange

Best to decide on the level/character you wish to play and find others at the same level. Find a table/group of 6 players and talk about your characters/tactics while waiting to be seated.

The Exchange

Am looking forward to this one. Want to check out Aethera!

The Exchange

Would love me some Goblin Brains!!!
Probably won't be there Thursday but can be found Fri or Sat easily

(PM for details etc)

I had considered how to make a "Johnny Storm" character. Figured it could be done with an Ifrit Kineticist. However instead of taking Fire, take Air Element first (either wind or electricity), and add fire once you get expanded element. Make sure to pick up the flying utility and make use of the burning hands at lower levels till you get access to fire. Just throwing that idea out there for folks

The Exchange

Aeon Flux?

The Exchange **** Venture-Lieutenant, Washington—Seattle aka jalroy

I have two vigilante characters myself. For my first, she is a Tengu warlock and a pirate in her social identity. She only appears in her Vigilante form during Pathfinder missions and never refers to herself as anything other then a wizard. I've never needed to switch identities to her social form and no one really questions her much about her origins/past etc.

My second is an Avenger, and has been mostly a GM blob but have played a few times. He is a Chelaxian Opera Singer in his social identity wanting to overthrow house Thrune, and a black clad warrior in Vigilante identity. I plan on treating them as allies or friends that can't be in the same place at the same time. If it calls for the social identity, the warrior will tell the PC's his friend would be better adept at that and summon him while convenient excuse to leave at the same time. Alternatively the social identity will excuse himself for his ally warrior to participate when combat is needed. I can explain OOC if someone has issue, but IC, they are not the same person to their knowledge unless they truly push the issue.

The Quest Honor's Echo and the Mummy's Mask Adventure Card Game will be featured this year at PAX all 4 days

Starfinder Society could have great potential, but would double the work on the Paizo staff to create scenarios and events. If it is set 1000 years in the future, it would mean no cross over between PFS and SPFS most likely. Still there likely will be a fan base for this that it could happen eventually.

I'd be happy to see that happen, but that might mean that gamers would be divided between PFS and SPFS which wouldn't be as great. It's a bit early to hope for it, but interested to see if it does develop.

Where do we gather for Lyrics of Exctiction tonight?

Looking forward to this. Have a Kuthite Kineticist who is great fun to play and pondering a shadowcaster wizard. Love Nidal. Praise the Midnight Lord!

Looks like I won't be able to attend this as my lottery event starts at same time. Might trade out so I'll have that time free

The Exchange

Space Needle is worth seeing, and there is a deal price for lunch and ticket up that is worth it, and good time to see the city from the sky etc. Crab Pot is good too, and right on the water. Haven't been to the Aquarium in sometime so can't give you a review there.

The Exchange

As I live near the hotel, willing to join. Would have to be after work of course. What would be the start time?

The Exchange

I am in for Goblin Brains. Will be there early Friday morning

I am making a Nagaji Exterminator. Just ignore what he does with all the rats he eats, I mean catches

The Exchange

Am curious to know more about the game as well. Should be fun!

The Exchange

Should be available for Thursday night game as I live close to the hotel. Can even GM something

The Exchange **** Venture-Lieutenant, Washington—Seattle aka jalroy

My Magus got to get the killing hit on Krune when I played it. He now has his head in a jar he likes to display to people.

The Exchange **** Venture-Lieutenant, Washington—Seattle aka jalroy

Aware I have to wait till July to make said blood bender. Sweet to hear that idea could be played. Thanks

The Exchange **** Venture-Lieutenant, Washington—Seattle aka jalroy

Am a bit vague if this can be done. What to play a Kineticist, water bender, but strictly use blood instead of water. Blood bending seems legit and intimidating, but it's also reskinning the power. Is this allowed?

How far is this new hotel from the SeaTac Marriott, where Paizocon has been previously held? I'm a Marriott rewards member, so I'm inclined to stay there rather than at the Doubletree if it's close enough?

They are about a mile from each other and still close to the airport. The doubletree hotel is more spread out and larger, and better suited for a growing convention.

The Exchange **** Venture-Lieutenant, Washington—Seattle aka jalroy

I've made a Kitsune Medium, a performer and high Bluff/Diplomacy character. Eventually he'll be awesome at charm spells and better in combat. So far the first session playing him he didn't get to do much at first lvl.

How can we get on the pkaytest for these new classes???

The Exchange **** Venture-Lieutenant, Washington—Seattle aka jalroy

Sorry that you had this experience. It can happen that inexperienced GM's can make mistakes or have lack of prep time etc. It's part of the risks sometimes with random play that you'll sit down with a bad GM.

Don't let this one GM reflect on all the rest of what PFS can offer. There are plenty of other great players and GMs that are in the area. You can always make another character to replace the one you lost, or play a pregen character.

Often the optional encounters have to be tossed out for time constraints in the games I've played in. I also find the 7-11 scenarios usually take longer then the lower lvl ones. But most scenarios are subjective and can take different amount of time depending on both GM and players at any given table. A heavy combat group could plow through one scenario, while a heavy RP group could take twice as long for the same scenario because of choices or options etc. It's not exactly a precise formula how long a hame should take to play.

Instead of asking Paizo to change thier scenarios to accommodate on the time of play, perhaps it's better to remind the gm & players to use the game time wisely and stay on task, focused on the game etc.

The Exchange **** Venture-Lieutenant, Washington—Seattle aka jalroy

I have a feeling we'll be hearing these complaints and gripes about season 6 for some time. Not everyone want's the tech mixing with thier fantasy game. Personally I like some change and creative additions as long as it's not going overboard with it. And from what Paizo has stated, they shouldn't be.

The Exchange **** Venture-Lieutenant, Washington—Seattle aka jalroy

Believe that is possible though chance some GM's wouldn't allow that kind of description. If you did though, and it's allowed, he'd be frightening nearly everyone he meets of not covered up. Why would the Pathfinder Society ever want him doing missions for them if it requires speaking to people or putting a good face up for the Society? He'd have to stay masked and covered most of the time.

If you want a super freaky looking Tiefling, go for it. Just also consider how realistically people would react to seeing a 'skinless' person. Might want to tone that down instead...

The Exchange **** Venture-Lieutenant, Washington—Seattle aka jalroy

There seems to be a few scenarios where the PC's are attacked or ambushed for being Pathfinders before you even get to announce yourselves as such. As if the NPC automatically knows your affiliation and goes into attack or flee mode.

The Exchange **** Venture-Lieutenant, Washington—Seattle aka jalroy

My Nagaji is Ranger 4, Sorcerer 1, Dragon Disciple 1. His name is Tatsu Deshi (Dragon Student in Japanese). He is an outcast from Tien-Xa who traveled to Absalom to study Aspu and the Great Dragons. He primarily uses a Nodachi, but equally skilled with claws in combat. Not much skill with magic but can cast divine and arcane spells from scrolls and wands. He's a giant dumb brute with gold scales, and enjoys eating rats. Now that he is Dragon Disciple will continue to talk of the superiority of Dragon kind to his fellow Pathfinders.

When I played Confirmation and our group killed the minatour, I got the GM to approve a minatour drinking horn on my chronicle sheet.

The Exchange

Have been playing my Tiefling Card Caster Magus, and he's been successful with staying involved with combat. Had to have two Harrow decks, one for readings and the other as ammo/weapons

The Exchange

Slayer has some access to some rogue talents in thier list of Slayer talents

The Exchange

Depends on your concept and build, one trait I suggest is Pragmatic Activator, use magic device with INT instead of CHA which a tiefling usually has a minus to.

This is an age old debate that has been discussed a great deal already by various gamers. There are those who prefer to min max and create a crack monkey attacking soldier type with a set of tricks to make NPC's die quickly and move on to the next fight. And then there are the people who craft a story and character, a voice and personality, and who care less about the mechanics and more for the fun of playing their character. And yes some even blend the two or are capable of shining both in combat and when talking in character is called for.

It boils down to preference and what is most fun for the player, since everyone is different. If you know how to make a Druid/Monk who can Wildshape into an Air Elemental to get that AC of 37, and then throw the badguys around the map, go for it, have fun making the GM complain how none of his NPC's can hit your PC. And if you prefer a twisted background that might not be optimal but will be a pleasure to roleplay out, then more power to you as well.

Personally I prefer to have a great character that I'll enjoy playing. I tend to try to make them great at their role via the mechanics, but I usually shy away from optimizing most of the time. Mechanics and the numbers, feats n gear can only take you so far. Building a personality, a story and breathing life into the character is more my style of gaming. But I am not going to reject another persons preference to have his min-maxed Tiefling Barbarian either. To each their own.

The Exchange **** Venture-Lieutenant, Washington—Seattle aka jalroy

I have similar problem. Many concepts and ideas that I want to play or try out but only so many games I can play. Have made a number of lvl 1 characters that some day may try out, but try to focus on certain characters to see them improve and develop. Presently working on getting some of those lvl 1 character to lvl 2 before switching to the next one on the list. Good thing is they often run low lvl tables in my area. Still sometimes a decision which character to play. Good to have options though and keep those creative juices flowing.

If something bad happens to your character, fail a save or get knocked below zeo HP etc, don't spend the rest of the session b#%~&ing about it OOC.

I already have a lvl 6 Nagaji & a lvl 4 Kitsune in play with boon sheets. Now they may not be as unique to be seen at a table. Glad to know I can start my new Tiefling character before the deadline.

The Quests sounds like an interesting idea but not sure how excited I am about that yet. Have to see how it works...

The Exchange **** Venture-Lieutenant, Washington—Seattle aka jalroy

Let's see. Counting my Runelord character in this.

Barbarian: 2
Arcane Trickster: 1
Dragon Disciple: 1
Magus: 10
Paladin: 2
Oracle: 4
Ranger: 4
Rogue: 3
Slayer: 4
Sorcerer: 7

Believe that is accurate list:)

The Exchange **** Venture-Lieutenant, Washington—Seattle aka jalroy

The line reads a card caster can use his arcane pool to augment range weapons only. Doesn't that mean he can effect his firearms?

The Exchange **** Venture-Lieutenant, Washington—Seattle aka jalroy

Similar question. Does a Card Caster Magus have to use a Harrow deck, or for that manner a deck at all for his Spell stike ability. The way I read it, any ranged weapon can be enhanced by his arcana. So if I had a Card Caster Magus with a level of Gunslinger, he could add spellstike to his bullets, right? Believe I am reading that correctly.
