@Tonatiuh Ramírez,

Sent you a PM last week. I haven't heard anything back yet.

Grand Lodge 4/5 ** Venture-Agent, Colorado—Denver

I'll try to help. If I'm wrong about anything, someone else will step in to correct me.

Hello All!

1) After Reporting all of my Players gained 4 Rep/Fame, but I couldn't see anywhere that it tracked their XP, Treasure, or Equipment under the My Characters Tab. Is that normal, or did I screw up?

The players keep track of their own XP, treasure, & equipment on their chronicle sheets.

Quote:
2) I noticed that the Character that I reported for GM Credit only had 2 Rep/Fame. (Does that mean He also has 2XP?)

Yes. GMs earn full credit for Rep in the scenario/adventure. Sometimes players may not earn all of the Reputation (i.e. if they fail to complete a certain mission). Fame is not awarded anymore.

Quote:

3) Per the information found here: Beginner Box document,

I gave each of them 4 XP, 4 Rep, 4 Fame, 4 Prestige, and 14 GP. Not to be a broken record but... Is that normal, or did I screw up?

That's correct! However, as noted earlier, Fame is obsolete.

Quote:
I am desperately trying to ensure that everyone's Character is Legal & getting all that they have earned. I'm good at running the game/not so good at the Paperwork. (Yet!)

Just do the best you can. Mistakes happen and they can be fixed. It's usually best to fix mistakes after the game so you're not wasting valuable game time.

Thank you for stepping up to GM!

Cheers!

Extremely fair feedback, so let me address what I can here.

There are a number of VO committees/task forces that exist on a volunteer basis (the list was under Volunteer Opportunities on the old OPF website). Each committee has a specific directive they work on.

The tools we'd be talking about are community tools to help bring in new players, GMs, VOs, and Lodges. Whether the tool is to point to existing things in the world by compiling links in one place or by the creation of a guide or handout that can be used to help navigate through PFS/SFS. One item that was being worked on of late was an update to the GM 101 document.

I hope that helps. If not, feel free to reach out to me and we can talk through it.

It does help. Thank you for the explanation! So, online tools & such.

Handouts & guides that can be used to help navigate through PFS/SFS would be quite useful. Many of my new players are overwhelmed with all of the rules & regulations of getting involved with PFS.

Are you sure it was Ed McMahon and not Monty Haul?

Those of you that expressed interest in playing #6-10: The Wounded Wisp, a Tier 1-2 evergreen, I will be running it for Outpost VII which starts March 4th.

Link is broken, I think. (It goes to a blank Paizo page for me.)

I'm interested in doing PFS 1e stuff. Any chance on there being any 1e specials? Core and/or Standard?

Grand Lodge 4/5 ** Venture-Agent, Colorado—Denver

You should ask this in the GM Discussion thread in the thread for the scenario.

You might also find you answers there.

Link to #9-07 GM Discussion.

You should have specified that in the original post and/or your survey.

Since I'm a mechanic, your definition of "tools" is obviously quite different from mine.

In my 13 years of PFS, I have never heard of this "Onboarding Committee."

So, uh, what do you mean by "tools"?

When you all are done with The Confirmation, I should be available to GM The Wounded Wisp. (It's another tier 1-2 Evergreen, btw.)

Ok. I'm assuming I can play any level at any time as long as I have a PC in tier.

I have a 6th level Grippli Slayer willing to tackle this dungeon.

I'm wondering, though, after playing these two levels, can I play the other levels with other PCs? Even the 1st level of the dungeon if I have a first level PC?

Grand Lodge

Interested.

Is this campaign something a player wants to play a PC with from the start, or just hop in with any PC at any time, if in tier?

What levels is this for? I see others with level 6 PCs for a Level 7 dungeon.

You might want to give PFS Play by Post a try.

It's really easy to get into and everyone is very welcoming, especially to new players. They'll even get a beginner's game going for you!

Grand Lodge 4/5 ** Venture-Agent, Colorado—Denver

A quick google search for "Ohio Pathfinder Society" turned up a few results with links to contact Venture Captains in the area. Give that a try.

You can sell it back for 50% of the price you purchased it.

If you purchased it at the discounted price of 250gp, as available in the Guide to Organized Play, then you can sell it back for 150gp.

If you purchased it at the normal price (500 gp), then you get 250gp.

If you used Prestige Points to purchase it, it has a resale value of 0 gp.

Why do you want to sell your wayfinder?

Got a freshly revamped level 01 Arachne (Spider Were-Touched Shifter) character to play! Anyone interested in helping out?

Considering on helping you out (as well as Mustaparta above). I'm going on vacation this weekend and will give it some thought. I have a level 2 PC that already did Master of the Fallen Fortress & The Confirmation. I'll look into GMing another one of the replayables or maybe one of the quest series.

Maybe Wounded Wisp or The Consortium Contract?

It says it in the blog that introduced the Core Campaign.

Quote:

At no time may any trait, feat, equipment, magic item, skill, animal companion, familiar, or any other character option come from a source beyond these three resources unless it appears on a Chronicle sheet. Race boons found on Chronicle sheets may not be used in the Core Campaign.

If an item appears on a Chronicle sheet, a PC may purchase and use it regardless of the book it comes from, with the exception of a boon that opens up a different character race.

Race Boons are not allowed in the core campaign. It's even mentioned twice.

If this rule is being changed, please let me know. I have several race boons to use and I'll use them in the core campaign.

I went to the PFS GM Discussion forum and typed "influence system" in the search bar.

For the Sovereign Court scenarios on the Pathfinderwiki, I have that page saved on my phone since I have 2 Sovereign Court PCs trying to do all of the SC scenarios.

Good to know they go kinda fast. If one comes up that I have a PC in tier for, I'll try to join.

My Core Cleric is 7th.

By coincidence, I have an opening in a Core Emerald Spire game, HERE. We just finished Level 4, and the party (druid & wolf, sorcerer, bard, fighter/rogue; all L4) could use a Core cleric in the L3-L5 range. Post here if you're interested.

How long does it take to complete a level? Is it about the same length as a standard PFS scenario?

Oh! Also, some of these scenarios deal with the lead up to the War for the Crown AP.

Specifically this one.

Grand Lodge 4/5 ** Venture-Agent, Colorado—Denver

1 person marked this as a favorite.

Assuming it's PFS1e, which War for the Crown is, I did a quick search for Influence System. Theses are the scenarios that popped up:

#4-9 The Blakros Matrimony
#7-14 Faithless and Forgotten I: Let Bygones Be
#7-22 Bid for Alabastrine
#8-14 To Seal The Shadow
#10-02 Bones of Biting Ants

They may not use the Ultimate Intrigue influence system (some old scenarios had their own systems detailed in the scenario), but, it's a start for what you may be looking for.

I remember GMing #8-14 when it was released and had quite some difficulty running the Influence System in that one. It may have been the scenario that introduced the Ultimate Intrigue Influence System to PFS.

Grand Lodge 4/5 ** Venture-Agent, Colorado—Denver

PFS1e & PFS2e are two completely different systems. I'm curious... How did your GM not know the difference? It's from 2016.

But, yeah, you cannot mix the two.

Any word on PFS1e boons being sent out to players & GMs that earned/won them?

Interesting. Are you sure they're using AI art? I do a lot of Play by Post and use google slides to show the artwork of creatures, items, etc...

The artwork I use is usually from sources around the web that definitely is not AI art. A lot of it are the actual images from rulebooks, sourcebooks, and modules. Both D&D and PF.

My Core game of Beyond the Halflight Path didn't get reported as Core even though it was specified as a Core game on RPGChronicles.

Who do I contact to get it fixed?

Bump. I never got a reply about boons that myself and other players in my games won. I noted it in Notes to HQ after submitting my last game that just finished.

“Earn” replays? How does that work, if not by the Achievement Points mechanic?

It was something along the lines of, "For every X amount of games registered that you played, you earned 1 replay."

I thought riffle scrolls weren't allowed in PFS. On AoN, there's no little glyph symbol next to them.

GM DarkLightHitomi wrote:
That said, there is no rule (that I'm aware of) that says magic items can't be made at a higher caster level than the minimum, but they'd be more expensive. Therefore, it makes sense that characters could special order higher CL versions if they wanted.

There is a rule. You can't get scrolls or wands of a higher CL except for what you find on chronicles.

Good news, you do not have to rebuild your character if you do not want to! Just update any changed abilities/spells to the news versions and you're good to go, just like any other errata pass.

I feel much better now. Thanks!

Kazuki's friendly NPCs: Kum Soon-chong (Vet) & Yun Mong-Un (woodcarver).

Unfriendly: Luo Xi Yang (Lawyer). She's not happy with Kazuki's rebellious attitude and that he often gets in trouble.

Will Archives of Nethys have a Remastered PF site and a separate PF2e site, or will the Remastered rules replace old PF2e rules?

I think there's been a problem reporting CORE Campaign games. My Core game of Year of the Shadow lodge got reported as Standard Campaign.

It appears my Core "Race for the Runecarved Key" Special from last year's GameDay may have been reported as Standard as well.

Along with other Core games.

Can the reporting be fixed and all PCs be converted back to Core?

I had a player win a PFS1e boon but there wasn't a dropdown or whatever to note it on RPGChronicles.

Changed his name to Kazuki Sato. I think Kazuki means one tree, or lone tree.

I suppose I can choose another human feat now for my bonus Ancestral Paragon one. I'm waiting to see what feats are in the Tian Xia book and might choose one frome there.

Here is my Ranger (archer) submission. Just a basic ranger. Simple but effective. Might take rogue archetype or just go switch hitter (archer & melee). It's just a rough draft, mind you. His name will change to something more serious, of course. I'd like to possibly go with a Tengu after reading the sidebar to possibly kick up the jorogumo excitement, however, it's not important.

I'm definitely fine with the horror elements in this adventure.

I chose Outskirt Dweller for his background. He lives in a cozy little shack/cabin further south of the southeastern Silvermist Lodge.

Heirloom Chosen: Supplies for an alarm snare, 10 sp, and two lesser ghost charges. (Bought a climbing kit with 5 of those extra silvers.)

A question, though - when you say players can choose an Uncommon feature, would that include the phoenix bloodline and butterfly blade from Fists of the Ruby Phoenix?

I don't know about the Phoenix bloodline, however, according to the Player's Guide...

"Season of Ghosts takes place in Tian Xia, and as such, the following uncommon weapons from the Core Rulebook are accessible to every PC upon character creation: kama, katana, nunchaku, sai, shuriken, and temple sword.
