So what do we know about Season 6?

Sounds like a focus on Numeria to me.

I need to figure out how my rogue can start using Disable Device as a combat action.

Robots arent hard to fight, if you train hard and take lots of vitamins.

And my sundering-focused character only has one game left before retirement. Shoot.

here you go, an item from a Pathfinder Tales chronicle...

Dampening ring of Laurdin Iket (1,000 gp, limit 1; on a successful melee touch attack targeting a construct, this small, ring-like device attaches to the target, forcing the construct to make a DC 16 Will save of be unable to move or take any actions [as if paralyzed]. At the end of each round during which it is unable to act, the construct may attempt a new Will save to end the condition with a cumulative +1 bonus on the saving throw for each round it suffers the dampening ring’s effects. After an affected construct is destroyed or saves against the effect, the ring is destroyed.)

Robots got bad Will saves...

Seriously, how cool would it be to be able to put some kind of clockwork template on an Animal Companion or Familiar?

yeah, and how many times are the PCs going to go in the Bar and have the Bartender yell out "we don't serve their kind in here!" pointing at the Robo-Companions and Robo-Familiar...

At least as often as they do it for the animals I suspect.

That is correct, I heard confirmation from the horse's mouth

Yeah. Have to admit I figured that would be the case when I saw the August AP announcement. Many were thinking Osirion, but that has not been the pattern the last three seasons.

Here's hoping that they achieve a feel along the lines of Expedition to the Barrier Peaks and avoid the temptation to simply go laser/robot gonzo.

Of course, with the thousands of (supposedly rare) adamantine weapons in characters' hands out there, construct-laden adventures won't be very difficult, I suspect.

Heh. One more follow up I just thought of: Construct-laden adventures will make all those paladins that were spawned by the announcement of Season 5 very sad, I suspect. Paizo has a cruel streak...

Scarab Sages 5/5 RPG Superstar 2015 Top 16

I knew it wasn't going to be Osirion. Frist, we are seeing a bit of that in the latter part of season 5 with the Destiny of the Sands three parter, and second Mummy's Mask will be all released by the time season 6 starts.

Silver Crusade 5/5

While I loved Expedition I loved it largely BECAUSE it was a one off. Numeria is definitely an area that I have NO interest in.

I really hope that the robot side is seriously underplayed. I'm already running out of Season 0-5 scenarios to play and run:-)

I want me an android boon.

Given the power of the android race (+your level to a d20 roll and huge numbers of saving throw bonuses) as well as the level of spotlight-focus that it would be guaranteed to funnel onto that one PC for the genre-bucking nature of the character, I'm guessing that boon will either never exist or be a one-off auction boon.

Well if was going to be an auction for just one person, I think it would be cool if it went to someone like you who would clearly use it for the forces of awesome (since there is great potential for the dark side in this one).

Despite my thread title, if there are a lot of constructs as opponents as Drogon suggests, I doubt they will have the feel/flavor of high tech "robots with lasers". Probably more like golems and clockwork creatures.

Perfect time to roll out my Rick Deckard knockoff character ive been wanting to do.

Liberty's Edge

Chris: Will you create multiple versions of the same character then in homage to the dozen or so different versions of that particular movie? :)

Numeria looks very interesting, what will be interesting though is why the Society is going there considering the inhospitably of the country and it's rulers (yaa Warlords!) + the technic league.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Red Redoubt of Karamoss comes into it, even in/as 6-03.

Well just take a look at the Adventure Path that releases at Gen Con. this year its Iron Gods. Last year it was Wrath of the Righteous. The year before the big release was the Rise of the Runelords pfs edition.

Rise of the Runelords - Year of the Risen Rune
Wrath of the Righteous - Year of the Demon (Siege of Diamond city even happens kinda in the background of The Worldwound Incursion and vice versa)
Iron Gods - Year of the golem?

Since the PFS releases have been tying into the AP ones, you can bet Numeria will be involved.

I think the Clockwork Key just became a must have item for next season.


Just want to say as a person with absolutely no interest so far in Pathfinder Society, I am extra excited to see these particular Scenarios, especially if they provide more adventure-meat for the Iron Gods AP...

Shadow Lodge

I expect the Decemvirate will have to sort through pages and pages of Chronicle sheets whining about how much they hate it there, how the Technic League keeps asking them to taste things, how wierd that soft glass-like stuff feels, why do they need to deal with a giant metal scorpion, and so on.

Though my characters might not like it there, I'm fairly certain that I will.

Well, the word 'robot' actually comes from an old Czech word, robotnik, meaning 'slave', and they're not slaves. They're very very happy. And not robots.

I do hope there are some new facets being introduced here such as more clockworks and maybe even some gunslinger foes. Sure, I'm probably signing all of my characters' death warrants there, but I hope for a challenge.

Liberty's Edge

I'm just a little disappointed in the fact there will not be a 12+ tier for the season 6 special this year at Gen Con and now after Eyes of the Ten I am at this awkward level where I can't do anything with said character to actually progress.

I am excited by the idea of the new season though!

I am currently participating in Eyes of the Ten, but I was given the impression that because I would be 13.2 after the end that I would not be able to do anything else unless I got that 1 XP from a scenario?

There is currently a path available to get your character all the way to 20th.

That is all well and good but my concern is whether or not me being 13.2 after Eyes of the Ten will cause problems or not.

Sczarni 5/5 ⦵⦵

Starfinder Charter Superscriber

Why would it?

Every character that goes through Eyes emerges at 13.2


You will not be able to play regular scenarios with that character anymore, but there are modules ranging up to 20th level.

Also, some of the season specials have 12+ level tiers.

Year of the Risen Rune was just as much about the Shattered Star module as it was the Anniversary edition of RotR. So it wasn't the sole reason for that naming convention. It's more what the August AP start is going to be.

The path, although I don't recall the names of the modules, finishes with you playing Race for the Runecarved Key after going through a Tier 16-18 module with a level 18.2 character.

You don't have to be at a flat level to play any other modules, so I don't know why 13.2 would be any different than 3.2.

Liberty's Edge

Its strange , its not the first time someone has told me that they couldnt play a Module because they were XX.2

I do hope someone out there isnt starting this BS rule rumor.

I've not been told much, that's all. I was given the impression that being xx.2 after 12 could cause problems, but that doesn't seem to be the case.


Yeah. You're just 13th level with 2 extra XP. Playing a module will bump you to 14.2, as most modules award 3 XP.

Liberty's Edge

Silh: You might want to look at getting in on Academy of Secrets. At a quick glance its the only one designed for 4 level 13 characters. You could then be in Tomb of the Iron medusa which is for 4 level 14 characters.

+1. I'll play it, but honestly, robots and the like have no appeal to me at all in this type of genre. This will be a season of holding my nose while I play.

Now, if the whole robot/construct thing isn't overplayed, then cool - I mean, I'm willing to give it a chance. But, at this point, I'm not overly excited about Season 6.
