I notice the first obstacle talks about orcs trying to slow down the party. But the reaver kills the last orc when the party arrives. Was the first entry left over from previous versions where some of the orc party survives?

Running this tonight and I'm wondering about this too. I'm assuming the set of orcs that just got wiped out by the creature are Urich's band.

I'll have the bad orcs appear on the scene the same time the PCs do. Both parties are caught unawares to see each other. Both groups see the beast roar and get ready to charge like a bull readying to charge a matador. I'll then have the creature give chase to both parties.

My interpretation would be that it is expansive. That's how I would rule it as a GM.

Oh! After re-reading your last post, I didn't realize you could change your ethnicity during downtime. That doesn't seem right. Interesting.

Grand Lodge **** Venture-Agent, Colorado—Denver aka roll4initiative

Sorry. Got threads mixed up. Ethnicities are, basically, racial groups. Elves, mammoth lords, and Varisians could have affinity.

Grand Lodge **** Venture-Agent, Colorado—Denver aka roll4initiative

It is all common sense, actually. Think about it from a real world perspective.

Does your Character really know what you know? Is he that well educated like you are? Does your PC carry a Smartphone while trudging through the dungeon?

Question: Does the feat Boon Companion work with the Hunter Archetype's Plant Companion? Or the Vermin Companion [Verminous Hunter Archetype]?

Boon Companion's pre-req is: Animal companion class feature or familiar class feature.
Plant Master replaces animal companion with "Plant Companion (Ex): A plant master forms a mystic bond with a plant companion. A plant master can begin play with any plant companion (see page 182 and page 26 of the Pathfinder RPG Advanced Race Guide). Except for the companion being a creature of the plant type, this ability otherwise works like the druid’s animal companion."
Now, the Plant Master no longer has the Animal companion class feature, but instead the Plant Companion feature, which "...otherwise works like the druid's animal companion. Verminous Hunter has the same text, except it's called Vermin Companion.

I would say "yes" at my table because of the part that I put in bold type. But, because I could be wrong, let's see what others have to say.

I am soooo looking forward to the Mysteries Under Moonlight two parter -especially in time to play it around Halloween. Season 10 scenarios have been just amazing so far. Kudos to all the authors, illustrators, cartographers, and developers!

It would be nice to see some 2e PC's on pfsprep. I'd like to see how others build their PCs and have the chance to use them.

Cheers!

I won a RSP boon the other day (as well as two others at my table - how rare is that!?!) and noticed they're the same as last season.

The aspect mask available from the high tier treasure on the Chronicle sheet is intentionally left "unassigned"; you can use it to obtain an aspect mask for any animal normally available under the hunter's animal focus class feature. We did this both because the mask in the scenario is not a standard version of the mask, drawing on an amended list, and so that the treasure on the Chronicle sheet would be useful and appealing to the largest number of players possible (a process we're constantly working on refining.)

That is awesome! My players will be very pleased to know this (If they play high tier). I'm happy to hear you all are making items useful to more PCs.

Grand Lodge **** Venture-Agent, Colorado—Denver aka roll4initiative

One of the magic items retrievable in the queen's mound is an Aspect Mask (ant). I cannot find any entry for "ant" in the hunter's list of animal aspects in any of my books. Anyone know which book it's from? It sould probably be noted next to the Aspect Mask in high tier treasure. I will have to write "(ant)" after the item listing before i make copies. Otherwise players may just choose an aspect for their mask.

Thanks.

I'm looking into running this and giving it a skim, and one question comes to mind: how should one pronounce Stuinvolk?

shtoo-in-folk would be the correct germanic pronounciation. If you wanted to have the first syllable rhyme with 'boy', then it would have to be spelled Steuinvolk. 'Eu' in German is pronounced 'oy'.

Plunder and Peril might suit your needs. It's a 3 part piratey mini campaign. Not sure how much takes place aboard a ship but reviews are good.

Retiree,
You should post your question in the Playtest forum. Welcome aboard.

They will be out of tier and not be able to play the scenario. They could play the second part with a different character that is in tier. I have had to do that a couple times. IIRC, the Bloodcove series has no special boon for playing both parts with the same PC. I could be wrong so i would have to look it up.

Grand Lodge

It doesn't say it in the product description that this scenario features a Scarab Sages faction mission. Just thought I'd note it for others planning on running this.

"All Subtiers" get access to the items listed on the chronicle sheet. If you play the scenario high tier, then you get those items and also access to the high tier ones. There is no fame limit for purchasing items from a chronicle sheet. In fact, I like to purchase all my items from chronicle sheets. That way i don't have to look up how much fame is required. And, it makes each PC a bit more special. Sure, all my fighters, slayers, & rangers can have a +1 naginata, but, I only purchased one for the PC that had it on a chronicle sheet.

Grand Lodge **** Venture-Agent, Colorado—Denver aka roll4initiative

Yes! Risen from the Sands! Ugh. Deadly. My Undine Cleric got killed in second encounter. Party helped pay for raise dead. When i GMd RftS later on, I tpk'd a party in first encounter.

They kept entering his circle even after he had a hostage that kept trying to attack him with a light weapon while being grappled and the other party members did keep attacking. He warned them to back off after revealing his true form. Even with my warnings that he was too powerful for the party, the players believed their characters were invincible.

It was my first or second game of PFS back in August 2010. In the first encounter we're headed towards a keep, get surprised by the attackers on the wall, and THUNK! -my level 1 ranger gets critted by an arrow. Like beyond Con score so I'm dead-dead. I sat there dumbfounded for about an hour thinking "Well, this sucks. Never gonna play PFS again..." Then the GM snaps me out of my thoughts, gets my attention, and says "Oops, sorry, dude. I ran that encounter wrong - that was high tier damage." He rolls a die and says "you only take six points." Whew! I kept coming back after that. So that was my first PC death. Which was later fixed, of course.

Ditto to Starglim's response. Heatstones seem kinda inexpensive for a multi-use item.

Ahhh! After reading the original post again, that it needs to recharge for 24 hours and burns out after 3 years, you could still die of hypothermia in the wild while that heatstone is recharging.

Wishing you the best on that 5th Star! My local Denver, CO VC & VL will be at GenCon. I'll point them towards this thread.

We had to do an entire table audit here in Denver a few weeks ago. Some of us veterans kept noticing a few players having wierd numbers, items, feats, traits, etc... on their PCs over the past few months. Rather than single out certain individuals, the VOs decided on an "Audit for all players before playing at the FLGS in July". The players had to send the GM pics or files of their sheets so they could audit them. It was a wise decision. Oh! Those that submitted their sheets for audit were given a boon from the GM's or VO's collection. I got a Vine Leshy!

I'm excited to see where The Concordance missions will take us as well as closure to many old scenarios.

Happy Birthday, HMM!

Grand Lodge **** Venture-Agent, Colorado—Denver aka roll4initiative

I would like to see at least 2 factions featured in each scenario. That way I have more choices as to which PC I can play in that scenario.

Grand Lodge **** Venture-Agent, Colorado—Denver aka roll4initiative

Wow, FlamesofChaos! I just checked out the website for that Carnage Con you're planning to GM at. Looks like a ton of fun! Luckily you have until November to plan on what to GM. I noticed the theme for the con is science fiction. As for a PFS scenario, the Phantom Phenomena quest series focuses on the Occult. Might fit the theme if Lovecraftian can be considered that. The first few Season 6 scenarios have a science-fantasy theme which might work. And, since everyone is still quite new to Starfinder, you might consider running one of the free to download Starfinder adventures for beginners.

9-22 Grotto of the Deluged God, which is brand new, seems very beginner GM friendly. Easy to run encounters & great intro to what PFS has to offer.

It appears the Gun Chemist is legal for play, therefore, the discoveries available to the class are legal as well.

Hmm. Ok. How about this:

I have a PC of every level from 1-15.

I've already played and GMed Emerald Spire.

I will bring one of my in-tier characters to your game.

I will simply play for no credit, in order to make a legal table.

My character will just sit outside and make sure no eels eat anyone.

Email me the no-credit Chronicle when you're done.

How long will it take you to get to downtown Denver? Mind you, the Denver Airport is almost in Kansas. No joke.

Been following this for my own needs. So, CigarPete's game & my own game would need to find a fourth player? I have seen threads about leaving the pregen at the entrance for "guarding purposes" if nobody wants to take control of the pregen -even if the pregen is out of tier anyway?

Scenario list is messed up. 9-14, 9-16, then 9-22.

I wonder if there were issues that needed re-editing.

It seems to me that we're losing the fantasy aspect of the game and focusing more on mechanics, numbers, actions per round, etc...

Yay! More math! *sarcasm*

Question regarding an item on the chronicle sheet:

Spoiler:
wand of air bubble (5 charges). Usually a partially charged wand is limited to only one. Is this available for purchase multiple times or should i put "limit 1" on the players' copies?

Thanks in advance.

Everything looks good for the Colorado Front Range. There are a couple stores no longer doing PFS. I'll figure out which ones soon and try to edit the map if i can. Thanks again for doing this map!

After 8 years I finally got a new smartphone so I will now be able to post regularly on the Paizo boards. No more time limits on the library computer. I have never played any type of online game ever but i am seriously considering giving PFS pbp games a try. PFS is still doing quite well at all the stores up n down the Colorado front range (except this weekend with Pride Fest, Denver Comic Con, and Father's Day happening all in the same weekend). I'm looking forward to GMing my Core game of Perils of the Pirate Pact on Sunday. Oh! And i hit 150 games GMd a couple weeks ago. Now on to get in a few Specials for that 5th star! :)

GM'd Birthright Betrayed. We had tons of fun and it was the perfect scenario to start my Sovereign Court skinwalker (werewolf-kin) Warpriest. I'm really looking forward to more awesome scenarios of season 9 in 2018. This season has been incredibly awesome so far.

Happy New Year!
