Thanks John. You folks at Paizo sure are busy.

Wow, that's some schedule for Winter War. WW PFS sure has grown. I missed it last year, but I'm making plans to return for this one.What are Library of the Lion and Where Mammoths Dare Not Tread about and which faction do they address?
I'd love to run The Waking Rune; I didn't get to at Archon, maybe this time? It's such a deliciously wicked season finale.
There seems to be an error on the map in the Temple. Area B3 is supposed to be a two-story area but the map does not indicate that. The boxed text describes "passages lead from either side on both the upper and lower levels, as well as from entranceways at each end of the hall."

Thanks Patrick and graywulfe. I am much happier now. :D

I think replacing the prereq of Scribe Scroll with Spell Focus would work fine for that feat. We will get it added to the next update of Additional Resources in October.
So, to be a Cyphermage, does the character need 2 Spell Focus feats? That is, one to gain the Cypher Magic feat itself, then another one to replace the Scribe Scroll listed under the actual prestige class?I have 3 characters who would be interested in becoming Cyphermages and I'm still slightly confused about that.

That was pretty sly of her. Nicely done.
MassivePauldrons brings up another point that I forgot to note in my list to justify the Andoran's mission. I'm still ok with it, for this particular scenario.

I actually don't see a big problem with that mission. Here aresome points to consider that you seem to have overlooked:
-Ascular Vruul is a Silver Aspis Agent which makes him a competently dangerous person by his very rank in the Consortium.
If he was such a nice guy deserving of the party's mercy, then he should have parleyed with them first.
No, in my opinion, Vruul gets what he deserves, if there are any Andorans in the party. Heck, even without any Andorans, his attitude will get him killed. Either way, he ends up dead. Even my own Andoran characters would kill him; they could legally claim "self-defense" since he attacked first with murderous intent. Vruul seems to have racked up some bad karma in his NE-selfish-pathetic life and pay back's a -----!

Thanks, that clarified alot.
I'm running this for PFS and I've come up with a specific hook for PFS characters being there. The Society has traced a lead to the whereabouts of the Scepter of the Arclords (referred to in the scenario Assault on the Kingdom of the Impossible) and they will get access to the ancient records that have been previously off-limits if they help Raheem defeat the Cult. Of course, that doesn't mean they will find it, or even a viable clue to its location.
Though, it would be cool to have some more info on the festival. I still might use the festival as written to give the party a chance to show off their skills to the population. I take it this festival isn't the same event as the competition the Houses of Perfection hold every 10 years? What is the Festival of Colors supposed to represent or reaffirm?
That would be a neat theme for a module, but it might be too similar to The Ruby Phoenix Tournament.
Thanks again for your replies.
I realize that this post I'm replying to is from 2 years ago, but I decided to flavor it up for my running of it in April so I declared that Ikrimah alters to the form of a Vishkanya. They sound very much like they belong in Jalmeray/Vudra.

There is some information about Nex and Khiben-Sald in the Inner Sea Guide. The Statues of Concordance are the two statues on opposite sides of the stream leading from the spring in the High-Holy district.
Thanks for replying so promptly, Matt.
I must be blind because I still can't see them. I've traced the stream down from that spring in the High-Holy district and I don't see anything like that, unless your are describing those 2 thick round greyish markings where that road goes west from the spring parallel to the stream and where it joins in a 'Y' with the road that goes SE into the Maury-Rahm Ward at the stream ford (there doesn't look to be a bridge there).
Also, is that spring between the palace and the High-Holy district supposed to be in The Heights district?
Sorry to be such trouble but I like to understand the maps.
It would be nice to have map keys for these cities.
I'm going to be running this for PFS credit soon and I have some questions. I want to impress the party with the grandeur of Niswan by using the settlement stat block(for instance)and the gm description text to add flavor to their visit, but I can't find those Statues of Condordance any where on the map. Where are they? What can the party learn about Maharajah Khiben-Sald and the Archmage Nex? Are they described in any other paizo books?

Now there's an idea. I never thought of that. I could create a clone character just like the PFS one and get the whole story that way and apply the chronicle sheets when appropriate.Thanks

I am in total agreement with you Myles. I want them to revise and re-release the 3.5 OGL modules, too. There aren't enough modules and scenarios now, especially low level ones, for those players out there(like me) who try to match up a certain character to a particular scenario or module because of the theme, the character concept, and/or story arc--such as The Price of Immortality series or Quest for Perfection series.I do admit that I've contributed to the dilemma by having created many, many characters (15 of them so far); I have a character for each faction and replacement ones for those soon to "retire". Yep, you can call me crazy, but, it's so fun to just create the characters. I come up with very detailed background stories for each of them, too, which makes playing them that much more fun.
However, my own gaming style aside, we do need more available material. And, by adding the old 3.5 OGL stuff, including the old Adventure Paths, along with all the other Adventure Paths, that would be the best.
Although, I was alittle disappointed when they listed the starting levels of 3-5 for the sanctioned portions of the APs Shattered Star and Rise of the Runelords. It would have been so much better if they allowed 1st and 2nd level characters.
I'll try to suffer through it...
Oh right, thanks for reminding me Lem:

(It was Artemis who discovered in EotT that Cal is actually a spy/smuggler for Andoran. But, he couldn't kill her after she discovered that secret because:
Cal also knows Brother Harsk the Constant and Lem Furryfeet.
Cal says (in a thick Kelish accent): "Well done, my friends. And as always, I've got you covered."

This sounds interesting but never used RPOL, is it easy to use?
Heya Artemis, good to hear from ya.
I'd be willing to play some PFS online every once in awhile. I used to play Living Force online but it used a different service. Is RPOL easy to use and is it a free download?
