Thank you.


Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Please cancel my pathfinder adventure path subscription. Please leave all starfinder subscriptions going.


Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Just not ready to commit to the new edition yet, and I have a huge backlog of adventures in first edition pathfinder I want to run with my group.


Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Please cancel my Pathfinder Roleplaying Game subscription. Please do NOT cancel the Starfinder or adventure path subscriptions.

Big congrats Blake. AoN has been my go to for years now, and I look forward to having the rules right there too.

It would be cool if there was a checkbox for "core rules line only" in the search, like the PFS legal one, but I can believe that might be trickier under the hood than it sounds.

Just for my own sake, because I'm a spreadsheet nerd, I calculated the drop-off in posting intensity. Over the past year, this thread has averaged 0.6 posts per workday. For the six years (almost) previous to that, it average 5.9 posts per workday. That's a 90% reduction in intensity. I miss it.

I stand in awe of your spreadsheeting.

This thread has been my bookmarked entry way to paizo's site for years. check this first, then whatever else may be up on the site.

New copy arrived and with a quick skim it seems to be in perfect condition. Thank you again, Paizo's customer service continues to be among the best I have dealt with in any business.


Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Thank you, sorry things are busy.

I sent an email about a defective copy of the Starfinder Pact Worlds on Friday, and I just wanted to check if it reached you and if anything else was needed on my end, like less glarey pictures so it was clear where the pages had been stuck together.

I just want to thank Crystal Frasier in particular for being a constant voice speaking out on what it is to be a trans person. If you don't know anyone trans, it is so much easier to be afraid of it or confused by it, and to let that one fact define an entire person to you. If I had not been reading what she wrote, I doubt I would have been prepared for when one of the players in my pathfinder group let us know she was transgender. Instead I was able to give her a big hug and tell her book 6 of the AP we were running was written by Crystal, a trans woman.

So to Crystal, and everyone else who speaks about what they are going through, thank you also for helping cis people know what is going on for you and by extension being better friends to the trans people they come across in their lives.

Dominion of the Black?

Probably accurate. I still wish I had stats for selectively invisible sky snakes.

Finished skimming, saw the Galluvix and that you can have it as improved familiar

I take my rating back, this AP is now THE best AP that has ever existed and will ever exist. It transcends the rating system, ascending beyond realms mortal can understand

But if you force me to put it in stars, 11/5 stars

If you enjoy a product, I strongly recommend leaving a review to tell everyone about the elements you liked, to help them decide if it's for them

I skimmed the book very briefly, saw the gallivix, showed it to my pathfinder group, and the discussion has already been worth the price of admission. Particularly with my fox loving chicken raising friend.

Spoiler:
Starwatchers in the new village warned their neighbors
about an array of shifting lights in the night sky, but their
warnings went unheeded for months. Soon, the village
children began talking about enormous worm-like creatures
wending through the air at night, invisible to adults. At first,
the tales were dismissed as childish fancies. Then entire
families began to disappear, and before the community
could investigate or react to the disappearances, every
living soul in the community had vanished.

Well, my replacement arrived today, binding looks much better after quick flip through.

How long does it take to get a response back from Paizo support? I submitted a message a couple of days ago and haven't seen so much as an auto-response.
At least you got the auto-response, I didn't even get that so not sure if I should do something more but I don't want to flood them with more emails, this must be already very bussy.
Paizo does not do auto/robo-responses at all to my knowledge.
The very first comment on this thread states that he got an auto-reply, therefor I thought they enabled some kind of auto-reply in this time of trouble.
I suspect it was an automated-looking mail sent by a human.

Point, it seemed like a form letter, and came within a minute of me sending my email, but it does have a signature block from Sara Marie, she may have just been that on the ball at the time.


Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Probably not what you are looking for but I will throw it out there anyway as it is how I do it:

Hook a computer up to a large TV and put the map into a virtual tabletop program. Set it up in advance and either use the tabletops built in light system or cover unexplored sections with large black blocks. Fill the area formerly used for the map with additional snacks.

I am assuming this is not a typo but foreshadowing some new beast or technology from Eox.


Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

So what are the long term repercussions of the binding issue?

EDIT: Thank you for the auto-reply showing you got my email. I was paranoid the attachments might keep it from getting through and that would have been nagging at the back of my head for days if I had to wait for a human reply. (Also thank you for letting us do much of this in the forums when things like attachments are not necessary)


Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I preordered the Starfinder core rules and first adventure path, but just saw subscriptions were available and added those. If I would be getting more than one copy of each, please cancel my preorders and just send as subscriptions.

EDIT: just saw another question on this, sounds like I should be good.

Enjoying using these for the Iron Gods campaign I am currently running, using the electrum set to differentiate silver disks from platinum.

Hmm, between this, Rise of the Runelords, and Wrath of the Righteous, I think I am going to avoid anything resembling a festival in Golarion.

I need to see if Grognard kept a copy of his journal. Ausk talked him into submitting it to the Pathfinder Society once they finished.

The first session I was running of a home brew campaign setting, the party's night lookout botched his perception and was knocked out by bandits. So he was off to the side, munching on the pretzels while everyone else got through the ambush. Once they brought him back, he joked about having a near death experience of eating pretzels.

We ran with it ever since.

In that setting there isn't a light at the end of the tunnel, there is an empty waiting room with a bowl of pretzels. Pretzels appear over the gates to cemeteries, with both of the end points pointing up, implying a life that begins and ends well. If they were pointing down, how people usually orient them, that is a bad and necromantic sign. The salt on pretzels is meant to indicate a preserved, long life. Adding peanut butter or chocolate implies a full, flavorful life.

We just kept building on the lore for years, and the players knew they were in for a tough fight if I brought a bag of pretzels to the game. That meant I expected someone to die.

I eventually put that world on the back burner, started trying out adventure paths to learn new tricks and styles, but the occasional pretzel joke remained. However, by popular demand, I just restarted working in that world, and I think I may need to go get a big bag of pretzels to bring next session, for old times sake.


Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Thanks, they got it cleared up.


Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Thank you for clearing it up, looks better on my end.


Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Sidecart please.


Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

The Rainy Day discount does not seem to be stacking correctly with my subscriber discount for my current cart, Chris said I should get in touch with customer service (or do I have to send this as an email? My mail client sends from a different account than I bill to, so I am trying to be lazy.)


Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Are the subscriber discount and this stacking correctly? Looking at my cart it seems too high to have both but too low to just have one discount...


Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Could you please cancel my Pathfinder RPG subscription (but NOT the adventure path one, I still want all the adventure goodness in physical copies)

Also, any word on when Starfinder subscriptions will be available?


Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

It has been a while since anything actually overheard was posted here...is everyone OK over there? Are they allowed out of the box the cookies were under yet?

So who fell for that trap finally?

Judging by how few posts this thread has gotten since then, almost everybody?

There is a PDF of all the collected handouts, so I don't need to scour the book for them individually. This brings me SO MUCH JOY.


Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Gah! Glad I read this thread, I did not notice there was no AP this month, and did NOT want to wait for CotCT. Is there any sort of opt-in for emails of "you have stuff in your sidecart but no subscriptions shipping this month"? Or a "Ship once monthly, regardless" option so stuff doesn't have to wait until after normal subscriptions are done and hopefully get to people sooner?


Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Belgarion should be magus, but with mythic tiers. Child of light and all that.

I feel like ultimate intrigue should have a good social archetype for C'nedra, like wit bard or dandy ranger, maybe with variant multiclassing for the dryad feel, or just a well chosen spell selection.

I think a poison focused investigator would be better for Sadi. No explosions or shapeshifting from the alchemist class, but a lot of social skill expertise, maybe even the majordomo archetype from UI.

I think Horror Adventures has a mooncursed barbarian that can actually become a bear for Barak.

Zakath...is probably a multiclassed mess. Maybe a skill based rogue that picks up a level of fighter late for weapon armor proficiency (early he is just sneak attacking with a cestus, but he learns how to use a lance and heavy armor later).

I need to think about this some more, and maybe reread everything, like I need an excuse...

Sending - because sometimes getting a message to someone on basically any plane right now is important.
Heal - fixes so much stuff in one little bundle
Antimagic aura - ruins so many plans in one little bundle

(honorable mention: endure elements, prestidigitation: because for someone actually living in the world,personal 24 hour air conditioner and unlimited soap and food seasoning would be just about the best thing ever)

I stole a part of our character creation process from another system, though I can't remember its name.

Basically: after character creation; each player tell about an event that was important in shaping the character, the event must be at least 3 years old, but can be older.

Then players take turns telling how their character knows the character on the left. Changing the character's defining event is not allowed, but anything that fits within the campaign outline is allowed and the player on your left must now fit it into his/her story.

Why?
It gives us a group that actually works together, as well as give the game master several clues on how to involve the characters. We've even had campaigns where this process decided the entire story and everything became about the players - which was,honestly, awesome :-)

Sounds Like Fate's system. I am actually using this in the Iron Gods campaign I am going to be starting soon to tie the party together, and the player has to choose their non-campaign trait based on the backstory someone else wrote into their history, just like in fate you make up an aspect based on it.


Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Loved the GM guide idea bouncing around in the CotCT thread, would gladly buy something to help scale things up to 6 or even 8 players. It would be nice to also have something on running for small groups, or adding in support for newer classes that something wasn't written considering (I am looking at you gunslinger, with your touch AC targeting and very different sets of gear). Throw in handling rare rules and spells *coughsimulacrumcough* and I am even more sold.

That being said, if something like the "spells of intrigue" section from Ultimate Intrigue started regularly sneaking into more of the hardbacks, or maybe even APs, I would be pretty happy with that too. It sure seemed like quite a few people were sold on UI when they heard about that section.

More hugs for IT here. IT support is always unappreciated, always dealing with people who are having a bad day already. My respect and well wishes in hard times.

Alchemist. As it is int based, you will have the skills to fill in for the rest of the group, and it can fill in the glaring gap of ranged combat. Extracts (particularly with the infusion discovery) can fill in utility casting, and bombs help cover both area effect elemental damage and debuffing. The alchemist in my runelords game has been as strong, if not stronger, than the ragepounce barbarian.


Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Darn it, I use a digital tabletop anymore for pretty much all my games, and I STILL think I have to get this set. There are just too many of my favorite characters in it at once.

Second, the subject immediately receives another saving throw (if one was allowed to begin with) against any spells or effects that possess or exercise mental control over the creature (including enchantment [charm] effects and enchantment [compulsion] effects, such as charm person, command, and dominate person. This saving throw is made with a +2 morale bonus, using the same DC as the original effect. If successful, such effects are suppressed for the duration of this spell. The effects resume when the duration of this spell expires. While under the effects of this spell, the target is immune to any new attempts to possess or exercise mental control over the target.

You try to re-save against any effects already present, and are immune to attempts to establish any new effects.

However, this is all limited to effects that "possess or exercise mental control"; certainly includes Dominate but certainly doesn't include Confusion, Heroism and various other [compulsions] that don't give the caster any control over the victim.

Powerful? Certainly. It's meant to be.

I agree. I think the key phrase is actually "While under the effects of this spell". It does not kick in because you made the save mentioned earlier, the immunity is always true about new effects while the spell is on you.
