This is my favorite special in this edition so far. Glad to run it again!

Thanks, numbat! Fun as always!


We're on our 3rd area and have fought the Aespis grunts. Part of it is they post fast, and they've also curb stomped all encounters (until this one) by good rolls and 1-2 being somewhat easy. The reefclaw fight looks like it might be tough, though.

Yes, slide deck is *super* helpful. Very much appreciated.

Hi,

The signup sheet doesn't have any options for PF2E after season 2. Probably just needs to be updated.

(and not major error - it just seems like a simple numerical mistake. The scenario is fire)


I believe there is a major error on a skill challenge:

Scenario:
The DC's for the pursuit are very low and it seems like they put the target numbers for a 1-4 instead of a 3-6. DC 18 for high tier is the DC for a level 3 target. My run got over 100% pursuit points when the target is 60%,

Guys. Guys.

The Reddit thread about this is calmer and more mature. The Reddit thread.

Tbf, the Pathfinder2E reddit community is probably as welcoming and helpful as reddit gets. But it is totally ironic that their thread is literally making fun of how cancerous this thread is.


Fort1: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (12) + 5 = 17
Fort2: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (16) + 5 = 21
Fort3: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (6) + 5 = 11

Fighting off something, Krelin speaks. Ah, so this inn is for Pathfinders?

Mine could use one. Maybe it'll prompt them to boost and send one. :-/

OK, thanks Dennis. Hopefully I can get at least two more.


Been almost 8 years since I played PFS 1E. I'll get my info in sometime this week. He's a 7th level ranger.


Since my 7-8 is empty, I'd be happy to make it a 1-2 or 3-6 if you think there's a chance it would fire. I've run in that tier, but I'd be happy to do it.


Definitely looking forward to it!


Anyone have a slide deck for 7-8 they'd be willing to share?


Hopefully, the 7-8s fill up. There is still time, but right now, at least one would have to collapse.

I can attest that Nicole is an great GM and organizer. (This means don’t kill my character Nicole. I mean, unless it’s awesome.)

And Jenny Jarzabski wrote my two favorite SF products: 3-00 and the Penumbral Protocol. We are fortunate to have all of the talented female contributors mentioned here involved in this great hobby. I know that it can help inspire those like my nerdy awesome teenage daughter and many like her.

1 creature per round.


Having just run this in VTT for tier 1-2, I'm excited to run this in 3-6.

I'm stealing the slides I can from your slide deck, Doug!


This is hilarious and useful. Will find a way to use it.


So, random thing I noticed; based off of the description of the encounter there, I think they put the wrong side of the flip-mat in this scenario.


Order #33623898

OK, so *somehow* a month and a half after the shipping notice on 9/14, the original order arrived today (much later than the following month's shipment!). Got to love postal efficiency some days.

So, you can remove the replacement order from the next shipment as I have now received my items, and my next shipment has not yet shipped (but is pending).


Next subscription order is fine. Thanks!


Oops... that was the tracking number

Order # 33623898


Hello -

This order shipped last month, but never arrived. When I clicked on tracking, it didn't show up. When I put the tracking number minus the PZ in front, it showed as delivered to a different state (I live in California).

I sent an email about this about a week ago, and I'm trying this route since I got no response. Can you please check it out?

Thanks,

Mike

Luis Loza and his favorite Golarion continent! This should be fun.


Next level awesome!


Cool. No worries! Hopefully we get some more to trickle in.


I have no signups... what date will we call a table? (Just curious, and while I'm happy to GM, I'd like to play it if it doesn't fire)


Those of us using Roll4Combat... those threads will be created later, right?

I mean the boons on the Chronicle sheets. We will have the convention boons that are in cycle until next SFS season launch.

Just to double clarify; do you mean it will be more like PF2 (where some things like ancestries are behind AcP insetead of being boons), but there will still be some minor story-like boons that give minor bonuses in specific situations?

With that said, are people saying that they would rather have cake walk scenarios with no possibility of death. What sort of adventurer would want that. Half the fun is knowing you might die...or am i the only one who thinks like that?

I agree completely. My favorite scenarios this seasons are also the toughest ones. I want a challenge. I simply haven't seen **any** characters die outright yet, but I have seen close calls. And those games have been **awesome**. Having someone drop to dying 3 is the definition of dramatic tension, and someone getting attacked while wounded 2 is tense!

That specific scenario's boss fight is tough. That being said, with a semi-balanced party it's usually fine. A bad combination of just squeaking over the CP line and having an unbalanced party probably made it too difficult. But I don't think it's something to make general changes for (unlike say, a 111114 Q1 massacre when 16 CP put you up a tier regardless)

I might be in the minority, but I think it's OK for the PCs to lose once in a while.

1/5 ****

I think a well balanced semi-competent group of 6 with 19-21 CR would curb stomp the low-tier version of almost every scenario currently out there. The only high tier scenario they might have trouble with a couple scenarios and having been in that situation as a player (19-21 CR) in what I consider the two toughest boss fights, it wasn't that bad.

That being said, one of the things about society play is sometimes a group just isn't balanced. And I probably have a higher tolerance for a player for tougher scenarios than some.

You need to be somewhere in the AP to apply chronicles. So if you are in book 4 when we release sanctioning, you can grant chronicles for books 1-3 immediately, books 4-5 as you finish them.

Thanks, Tonya. This is fair, and I really appreciate the response. Since I'm doing PbP I am confident ExCurse will have sanctioning before we finish! :-)

Will AP sanctioning be retroactive in most cases? I didn't play AoA, but I'm in the middle of GM'ing book one in ExCurse.


Thanks! I figured that there would likely be kinks in the system for a few weeks.


I know VO's got this, but it's still not available in the store. This must be an error... who do we ask?

1/5 ****

It should also be noted there were pretty good reasons not to sanction those, though, right? Wrath of the Righteous was specifically a mythic AP, and Hell's Vengeance was an evil AP.

1/5 ****

Honestly, thanks to all of you for getting this out. I'm especially surprised that LOGM was approved so soon!
