You have been summoned to the Grinning Pixie, the ship—and mobile Pathfinder lodge—of Venture-Captain Calisro Benarry, which is currently moored off Tempest Cay, the northernmost island in the Shackles.

Venture-Captain Calisro Benarry, a powerfully built half-orc, stands defiantly on the deck despite the driving winds. Sparse clouds are resplendent with the calm colors of twilight, but waves lap roughly against the ship as sea spray mists the air.

After you have been chosen for this game, please introduce your PC and feel free to engage in roleplay with each other before we start, if you wish.

This is a closed/private game, however, we might need a player or two depending on who's not playing from our original group.

Hello and welcome to my first game in our GM Round Table group,
#9-11: The Jarlsblood Witch Saga for PCs of levels 5-9.

Please fill in your information at RPGChronicles found
You do not need an account to sign up, however, there is no fee to do so. Only the GM will see your email. This is so the GM (me!) can email the chronicle pdf to you.

I like to post more than once a day, when I can, to keep the flow of the game going and my memory refreshed. I also like to post on weekends. I am fine with nobody posting on Sundays if they don't want to.

I like to do Day Job rolls after the game, but, I also like to have players incorporate their day jobs into the game; gathering info at the local tavern? Have your bard do a stand-up routine for the locals. Faction Journal Card mission? Chat (roleplay) with the Venture Captain's servant to convince them to join the Exchange!

Let's have an awesome super fun game!

Agents of History,

The Pathfinder Society and I have worked together closely to uncover forgotten secrets, particularly as I help secure the Society access to previously inaccessible Taldan artifacts. Recent events in Ridonport have caused quite a stir, and I believe Grand Prince Stavian III is preparing to retaliate in some fashion. Few know of his schemes, among these the Ulfen Guards who serve as his unwavering bodyguards. Of these, one has determined that it is his moral imperative to alert others of what he has heard of the grand prince’s plans. This is vital information. This is also whistle-blowing that puts that guard at risk. He is willing to take that risk only if someone first restores his family’s reputation in his homeland, the Land of the Linnorm Kings. Admittedly, he has not visited his homeland in many years, so his account of exactly how his family was defamed is unclear.

Venture-Captain Bjersig Torrsen of Iceferry has informed me that he knows something of this guard’s dishonored past and has begun piecing together the first clues that might exonerate him. I have already written ahead to Bjersig so that he expects company, and I trust you will assist the Society and me in this matter. Even if Inner Sea politics don’t hold your interest, I trust a centuries-old murder mystery will.

Also, please be considerate when meeting with Bjersig. He may be deaf, yet he is among the strongest, kindest, and most capable Pathfinders with whom I have corresponded.

Lady Gloriana Morilla

Feel free to introduce your PCs and roleplay your journey from Absalom to Iceferry as passengers aboard a large merchant ship.

An enemy of the Pathfinder Society recently found a hidden dungeon in a centuries-old siege fortress, but despite his best efforts to convert it into his base of operations, he failed. When a pair of Pathfinders encounter disaster while scouting out the entrance, the party must explore the first level of the dungeon to determine not just what attacked their comrades but also what dark power their nemesis nearly acquired.

The invitation delivered last night was remarkably simple, especially given the importance of the occasion:
“Start where it all began. Meet us at the Pig’s Paunch one hour before dawn.”

The Pig’s Paunch is a run-down building with a faded sign of a large pig standing on its hind legs, arms folded above a corpulent belly. Inside, the air is thick with the scents of human sweat, stale tobacco, and leftover food. In the center of the room, surrounded by inebriates sleeping off their revelries, a familiar elven man stands high upon top of a large round table.
“Welcome! Welcome, my students! Please, have a seat!”
With that, Kreighton Shaine, the Pathfinder Society’s Master of Scrolls, nimbly drops down to sit cross-legged on the table before looking about the tavern with a sense of reverent wonder.
“Can you believe it? It all started here years ago—well, over four hundred of them at least. Under this very roof the Pathfinder Society was born.

“But today! Today you will begin your Confirmation! Master Farabellus, Master Zey, and I all agree you each have shown your worth and dedication to the Society, so there’s no better time to see if you can handle becoming full field operatives. Allow me to introduce you to Janira Gavix,” he says as he motions for an excitable halfling woman to approach.

She wears a large backpack and carries all manner of tools, pouches, and scroll cases around her waist. Shaine continues, saying,
“Janira here will be going with you on your Confirmation. She was one of my brightest pupils and will no doubt be an invaluable resource on your journey, for she discovered the caves you are about to explore during her own Confirmation.”

Janira speaks up in an enthusiastic and cheerful voice,
“Greetings, aspiring Pathfinders! Six months ago, while I was mapping cave entrances in the foothills of the Kortos Mounts, I witnessed a lone gillman entering a concealed cave. I thought little of it at the time, but I saw another one enter the cave again a month later as my Confirmation stretched on. A few days later, after I completed my assigned task, I entered the cave system, but was unable to find the gillmen.”

Master Shaine hops to his feet. “Initiates, for your Confirmation, you will travel to these caves to explore and document its many passages. Additionally, and most importantly, you are to learn what the gillmen are up to in there. Oh, and you need to come back alive as well.”

Please introduce yourselves to the others.

I'm having an issue about a Bard's Signature Spells in a game. The GM says that my Signature soothe spell on my 3rd level Bard takes up a 2nd level slot when I cast the heightened version. From what I can tell, Sig Spells do not take up a higher spell slot when casting a heightened version. It says it right there: "You don’t need to learn heightened versions of signature spells separately; instead, you can heighten these spells freely."

Heightened freely like a cantrip, right?

Signature Spells from CRB:
"Experience allows you to cast some spells more flexibly. For each spell level you have access to, choose one spell of that level to be a signature spell. You don’t need to learn heightened versions of signature spells separately; instead, you can heighten these spells freely. If you’ve learned a signature spell at a higher level than its minimum, you can also cast all its lower-level versions without learning those separately. If you swap out a signature spell, you can choose a replacement signature spell of the same spell level at which you learned the previous spell. You can also retrain specifically to change a signature spell to a different spell of that level without swapping any spells; this takes as much time as retraining a spell normally does."

What would be the point of having Signature Spells if I had to use higher level spell slots like any other spell?

Looking for some spooky PFS 2e scenarios, quests, and bounties to run during the month of October at my lodge. What are some of your favorite spooky scenarios?

Grand Lodge

How would you handle the wind blast ability from the cloud subdomain (referenced below) in how it affects a cloud golem? Would it work like how a gust of wind spell does against a cloud golem?

Cloud Golem stuff:
• A control winds spell destabilizes a cloud golem’s body and dazes it for 1 round.
• A magical effect that deals electricity damage affects the cloud golem as per haste for 1d6 rounds and ends any slow effect on it.
A gust of wind or wind wall spell affects the cloud golem as per slow for 1d6 rounds and breaks any haste effect on it.
• An alter winds spell deals 2d6 points of damage to a cloud golem.

Wind Blast (Su):
As a standard action, you can unleash a blast of air in a 30-foot line. Make a combat maneuver check against each creature in the line, using your caster level as your base attack bonus and your Wisdom modifier in place of your Strength modifier. Treat the results as a bull rush attempt. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier.

CRB wrote:
Supernatural abilities are magical attacks, defenses, and qualities. These abilities can be always active or they can require a specific action to utilize. The supernatural ability's description includes information on how it is used and its effects.


Gust of Wind
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Components: V, S
Range: 60 ft.
Effect: line-shaped gust of severe wind emanating out from you to the extreme of the range
Duration: 1 round
Saving Throw: Fortitude negates
Spell Resistance: yes
Mythic: Has Mythic version
Source: Core Rulebook
Summary: Blast of wind blows away or knocks down creatures.
This spell creates a severe blast of air (approximately 50 mph) that originates from you, affecting all creatures in its path. All flying creatures in this area take a –4 penalty on Fly skill checks. Tiny or smaller flying creatures must make a DC 25 Fly skill check or be blown back 2d6 × 10 feet and take 2d6 points of damage. Small or smaller flying creatures must make a DC 20 Fly skill check to move against the force of the wind.

A Tiny or smaller creature on the ground is knocked down and rolled 1d4 × 10 feet, taking 1d4 points of nonlethal damage per 10 feet.

Small creatures are knocked prone by the force of the wind.

Medium or smaller creatures are unable to move forward against the force of the wind unless they succeed at a DC 15 Strength check.

Large or larger creatures may move normally within a gust of wind effect.

This spell can't move a creature beyond the limit of its range.

Any creature, regardless of size, takes a –4 penalty on ranged attacks and Perception checks in the area of a gust of wind.

The force of the gust automatically extinguishes candles, torches, and similar unprotected flames. It causes protected flames, such as those in lanterns, to dance wildly and has a 50% chance to extinguish those lights.

In addition to the effects noted, a gust of wind can do anything that a sudden blast of wind would be expected to do. It can create a stinging spray of sand or dust, fan a large fire, overturn delicate awnings or hangings, heel over a small boat, and blow gases or vapors to the edge of its range.

So, I recently got a chronicle for a tier 7-11 game and we played high tier.
The chronicle sheet had the lower tier items crossed out. Now, the thing is, the higher tier had the regular version of the items, whereas lower tier had the "lesser" version of the items. I always thought that if you had access to a regular or greater version of an item, you automatically have access to the lesser version.

Also, this is the first time in 11 years of PFS that I had the low tier items crossed out after playing high tier.

The GM said this is somewhat normal for UK/Europe to cross out the lower tier items, but, I've never seen or done this when I GM here in the US.

The chronicle is from #9-11: The Jarlsblood Witch Saga, btw.

I know that in PFS 1e, players were allowed to know what the DC of checks they were attempting before rolling.
Is this not the case anymore in PFS 2e?

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

I created a Lizardfolk druid and want to have his weapons be similar to stone-age weapons. I couldn't find anything regarding stone-age materials on Archives of Nethys for 2e.

I want his spear to have a clovis point made of obsidian. And a tortoise shell shield.

I also have a woodlands ranger and I want to say his bow is made partly of large deer antlers and that his dagger is a hunting/skinning knife.

Is this ok to do in 2e?

Are others canceling or planning on canceling their PFS games due to CoronaVirus? I talked with my VC tonight and since attendance at our game stores has been very low, we decided to possibly cancel games until this has blown over. I haven't sent out the notice to my players yet. Wondering what others think.

This faction boon represents your developing initial contacts with the Envoys’ Alliance faction, allowing you to gain Reputation with the faction. While you have this boon slotted, you gain Reputation with the faction after a successfully completed adventure, as detailed in its Primary and Secondary Objectives.

Does this mean that if I'm playing a PC of the Grand Archive, and I slot this boon at the beginning of a scenario featuring the Envoys' Alliance, I can earn reputation and Envoys' Alliance chronicle sheet boons if I complete the E.A.'s mission?

I'm trying to make a half-elf and it says "you gain the elf trait."

What is the "elf trait"?

I was planning in my head all day of making an Elf Champion (Liberator) of Erastil but noticed when I got home that Erastil doesn't have Chaotic Good for a worshipper's alignment. This makes no sense (to me) for an Elven deity of home & community.

Also, Asmodeus: No Lawful Neutral worshipper's alignment? I thought most Chelaxians that worshipped Asmodeus were LN.

I have seen GMs racing to get that 5th star, people that just GM a bunch over a couple years to get that 5th star, and others that just take their time. So, how long did it take to get your 5th star? What scenario, Convention, venue, etc...?

I never have but meant to do so. Last year I picked up some 6"x8" acrylic menu stands, drew up & printed out pictures of my PCs to put in the stands and I have yet to place them on a table for a game.

I only see about one or two people at a table using a table tent. With the big explosion of new players in my area (Denver) I think I'm going to start using them.
