Snowball with stagger

Silver Crusade 1/5

So ive done most of the research already but I just want to make certain that I'm not missing anything
The spell snowball has two iterations 1 in people of the north and the other in Ultimate wilderness the original had stagger and was not affected by spell resistance I recently found a post that basicly states that if there is a new book out that has the same spell name that you would need to consult additional resources or the campaign clarification to see which to use and, if I understand it right, if there is nothing listed about the spell then I could use one or the other provided i had both otherwise id need to use the rules that are provided in the book i have
Am i missing anything? Thank you in advance.

Oops i should have put this in the pfs section. My bad. How does one move a thread?


The thing you're missing is punctuation. That was fantastically hard to read.

The thread you're quoting was the.. 4th (?) Made by the same person to complain about the lore warden. The answer was clear and simple.

"The fully refined version will be Paizo's default version for adventures, NPC compilations, and the like moving forward".

And for PFS they will clarify what's been cleared, as always.

So basically, snowball was too powerful. Now it's about in line with other spells of it's nature and level.

Sorry for the punctuation, ill be sure try to be as punctual (heh heh heh) as can in future posts. my apologies to all who must see it, as i'm unable to edit that post at this point. As for pfs clarifying things: They have not said anything about snowball in either the additional resources or the campaign clarifications, other than that all the spells in "People of the North" on page 26 are legal. And that all The spells in Ultimate Wilderness are legal for play (except forest's sense, grasping vine, and vine strike. but that's not relevant here.) Which leads me to believe that both are legal, because it doesn't state that we need to use one version over another another. or that one replace another.

as far as
"The fully refined version will be Paizo's default version for adventures, NPC compilations, and the like moving forward"
this sounds like they are stating that paizo themselves will be using the updated version for these things from here on out. This, to me, doesn't seem to relate to what pfs should do, that's just what they will do.


This post should clear any ambiguity.
