Finding explanation of Chronicle Sheets


Pathfinder Society

Grand Lodge

I am about three steps lower than a novice in PFS. So this question will be very simple for almost everyone.

I have two registered Characters. One character (-1) was played three times, twice with friends, once at GenCon (2017). I just started playing the second character (-2) at an "organized" play session last night. (Thanks Alex for doing a great job by the way!)

At the end of last night's game, I got a Chronicle sheet. I am confused by how to use this information.

Question #1: Where can I look to get an explanation of how to apply this sheet's information?

Question #2: My profile here shows the three games I played with character (-1). What, if anything, can I do with the Ranking, XP, Gold, Fame, that was awarded to that character? (He never got past Lvl 1)

Thank you for taking the time to point me toward a >>simple<< explanation.

I assume you no longer have the Chronicle Sheets for your first character?

That is correct. I am very bad at keeping things over that much time. That is why I have started both an electronic and a binder with this character's stuff in it.

the guide to organized play has the official and technical stuff

Flutters Guide for newbies is not quite as relevant now that you've played but still has some basics it sounds like you missed.

You could theoretically ask the dm that ran the game OR a venture person (organized play officer) to re issue the chronicles.

I really should make a guide for what to do with your first chronicle sheet... but basically its like a checkbook tracking 4 different currencies: XP (3 xp and you level), Fame (how well known your character is), Prestige (how many favors you're still owed for all that fame after you called in your favors), and gold.

So for chronicle 1 your gold starts at 150, your fame starts at zero, your prestige starts at 0, and your XP starts at zero.

On you first chronicle you (probably) Earned 1 xp, 2 fame , 500ish gold which brings your total to 1 xp 2 fame and 500 ish gold (650 minus whatever starting gear you bought)

So on your second chronicle you start with the end values from your first chronicle and then apply what you got from the second chronicle

On your third chronicle you start with the end values from your second chronicle and apply what you got from the third chronicle and so on.

I just found the two Sheets from my friends game. One was a "we are Goblins" game, the other I was a pre-gen 7th level character.

I was not really playing a character of my own developing. So, while I now have an XXXX-2 character with 1 XP, I am guessing that these other sheets mean very little (except I enjoyed the games a lot).

This does bring a question to mind. If 2nd level requires 2,000 XP and I get 1 per game, does this mean I it will take a very long time to get to the next level? OR do other games give more XP? I would really like to see my Rogue to see the upper levels (if I don't get him killed first with only 8 HP that is not unlikely <grin>)

Organized play uses a streamlined progression, rather than the standard XP chart. It takes 3XP to level up.

Thanks for the information. I have now gone back and read the guide for organized play (a couple of times). I think I am understanding Fame and Prestige.

I have seen some inventory form for the items you buy. That is good. I haven't found any for track the Prestige transactions, so I will have to make one up, should be very simple.

Thank you, and the others that have gotten back to me, for your help. It is very much appreciated.

Now that makes a lot more sense! So that is consistent for all levels? (I come from an AD&D background where the level up spread kept increasing)

As long as I am asking simple questions, where is the info on "day jobs"? I read the parts about rolling for the extra GP, but do you just declare you have a job or do you have to have a specific one listed (tool maker, jeweler, etc)?

If you have a rank in some Craft, Profession or Perform skill, you can use that for your Day Job roll. All of these skills require you to specify the craft, profession or performance you are doing. So it could be Craft (carpentry) or Profession (sailor). Sometimes these come up in the scenarios as well, so if you lean more into the optimizing side, choosing one that might actually help you instead of just being part of your background is a valid choice. Profession (sailor) is the most common one, think.

That's correct. (If I need to figure a characters level from chronicles, I do 1+(XP/3).)

If you're attending some organized events, there is likely some kind of venture officer in your area. I'm sure they'd be happy to sit down with you as well go to over everything and offer some other helpful suggestions and explanations. It's part of our job!

Actually, those two sheets mean you have a -1 character that you can build as you like, apply the Welcome to Pathfinder Boon, and then apply the chronicles to that character either at first level (giving you 0, 1 or 2 xp) or at the appropriate level for the chronicle (meaning the 7th level pregen would come online when you hit 7th level). Since that -1 hasn't been played at second level or above, you have complete freedom to design any legal character.

Each Chronicle sheet should have, on the right hand side, boxes with which to track your Starting Fame/Prestige, Earned Fame/Prestige, Spent Prestige, and Ending Fame/Prestige. Chronicles from Seasons 0-2 will only have Prestige listed, so you will have to write in Fame separately, but that is where your official book-keeping for Fame and Prestige should be done, Chronicle by Chronicle.

And like Brian mentioned you can apply the game using the 7th level pregen to your 1st level PC if you want. Thus giving character 1 - 2 XP.
