No worries.

Please indicate in the Game calendar what level you expect your character to be at when you play this game - it will help us all to have an idea of what subtier the game will be ran at. Thanks. :)

Here is Talwynor, a level 3 Elven Ranger.

...and Trenloe - are you able to import him with the built in char importer....because I dont seem to be able to at all.

May have found the problem - will test later but this seems to be the issue: http://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?t=15025

Sorry for the long chain on this issue and thanks for the assistance Blackfoot, but here's the chracter. Using the old conversion and my subsequent "fixes" were the problem....works fine with the attached file and the built in converter.

Actually.. with the new setup you shouldn't need to use the character importer if you are loading a .xml file. In the new setup... a host can upload .xml characters directly into the character selection window by clicking the button at the bottom center of the window. It is actually really easy to use now.

Yeah, that's what I thought. Didn't work tho.

Hmm.. I tested your file on my machine and it didn't seem to work either. How did you create it? In FG or using the converter from HL? If you save directly from HL as a .xml file it doesn't work... you have to save as a .hlfg file then use the converter to turn it into a FG .xml file.
Apparently the HL .xml and the FG .xml aren't the same thing at all.

Blackfoot
August 9th, 2012, 19:18
Looking at the actual file contents, it would seem that's what you did.
You need to go to 'Save Custom Output' in HL rather than 'Save'... you find the 'Fantasy Grounds' option there.

Talen
August 9th, 2012, 19:29
I had the same problem with the custom output. Ive had this work in the past.hell. Even did a video on it, but I'm stumbling somewhere. Which converter are you using for hlfg to xlm? Maybe that's my downfall...

Blackfoot
August 9th, 2012, 19:37
I just tested out a character using the new converter that should be in your FG 'utilities' folder in Application Data... It worked just fine.

Right. And that's what the link references .... I think that's it....

EDIT: and it was, the attachment is updated and works now. Thanks for the help.

Hey folks - time to start thinking about what subtier we play. We currently have 3 x 3rd levels (perhaps one of those will be 4th by Monday) and 3 x 1st levels:

Players

Killian - Haematite - 3 -Half-Orc Monk #40412-2
Talen - Talwynor - 3 - Ranger PFS#37840-1
Macgreine - Lancieren - 1 - Rouge # 39019=1
avro5731 - 3 or 4 Inquisitor PFS# 41731-4
Mazz0382 - Mazz Erdan - 1 - Wizard PFS#58655-1
kozzom - Barin - 1 - Fighter PFS#55012-2


This works out as APL (average party level) of 3. Which means you are between the 2 subtiers (1-2 and 4-5) and so can choose to play up or down.

I would not recommend 1st level characters playing up!

So, there are a few options:

Play subtier 4-5 and 1st level characters play a PFS 4th level pregen.
Play subtier 1-2 and the 3rd levels own the game.
Play subtier 1-2 and most (if not all) of the 3rd levels play a backup 1st/2nd level PC.
Play subtier 4-5 as we are - there would be a good chance of the 1st levels not surviving.


I know we're at the point in PFS on Fantasy Grounds where there are people with 3rd level characters who want to play out of subtier 1-2. But, we still have a lot of players with only 1st level characters as their only option of playing their own character (instead of a pregen) and getting XP to get to those higher levels.

Anyway - let me know what you think regarding the above options - or another option I may not have thought of...

Thanks!

I personally vote for subtier 1-2 I am more than willing to bring a 1st level PC to the fight.

On a seperate note I'm working on making a few videos in the future for YouTube showing off FG and Pathfinder. I'm looking to do a couple, firstly running through registration, character creation and playing a scenario, then once I start running games recording running First Steps from a DM point of view. They will be quite long as I'm looking to record the whole session. If we do decide on tier 1-2 it will be a great chance for me to record character creation so my question is does anyone object to me recording the game?

Looking over the list and after last night I'll swap out Haematite and use Claudia, level 2 sorceress. I'll save the video thing for another time too makes more sense to do it using First Steps at a later date

OTHER PLAYERS!

Any feedback on the 4 options I listed 2 posts up in this thread? We have 2 x 3rd levels, 1 x 2nd and 3 x 1st.

I don't have a preference, but also can play a a new 1st level character if that would help.

as my sat and sun games fell through I would like a lvl 3 game to get my inq to lvl 4 but won't cry if I get to play a lvl 1 toon (soob maybe but not cry):p

Trenloe
August 13th, 2012, 02:21
I'm needing your character exports so I can load them into Fantasy Grounds *TODAY*!

I have Talen's 3rd level, Macgreine's and kozzom's 1st level PCs.

See the above few posts regarding what subtier to play - this may change what PC you will bring to the game.

Please send me the FG XML export for the character you will play ASAP.

If I don't hear from you by first thing Monday morning I will start inviting the people from the waiting list and you could lose your place.

Thanks guys - would you both mind not playing your level 3's and play a level 1, please?

Level 3's in subtier 1-2 are too powerful and the level 1's playing in the group don't get to do much - so it's easy for the 3's and frustrating for the 1's. This is especially so for the season 0 or 1 scenarios as these were made for 3.5E and so are easier for Pathfinder PCs (who are more powerful than their 3.5E counterparts).

I plan on being there tonight. There is a storm in my area atm and news says storm is moving slowly. Hopefully it's gone by game time, but thought I'd at least give a heads up in case power goes out or something.
