I'd love to play this one, though the 3am start put me out of it :( Good luck with it though. I am sure it will fill. If there's anything I can help with just let me know

I've subscribed to this thread; 10pm EDT is late for me as well, but it will be difficult to succeed my Will save if there's a seat available the day before the game. ;)

Welcome Manium, Your file uploaded and is ready to go. The inventory sheet is a new document that was added since season 5 release. It is now mandatory for anything bought or sold over 25 gp post season 5 release. It is new and you are fine with out it. If you buy or sell anything during this game ill provide you with one. Basically it is a quick reference list of your more valuable items. Very simple form.

Trenloe has both the season (5) chronicle and the inventory sheet there. They are both filable and savable.

This is a new requirement with PFS season 5 - read this thread (item 3 in post #1): http://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?19333-Season-5-changes-summary-all-PFS-players-and-GMs-please-read

If you haven't done so already, you'll need to change your faction as Shadow Lodge has been retired (item 1 in post #1 in the above referenced thread).

First off, I would like to say thank you for the support from some of the more veteran players. I'm looking forward to running this for you. I hope I live up to your expectations. As fare as the tier, it looks like the APL is going to be somewhere around 2 or 3. I have accepted everyone that has applied so fare, making the assumption that the characters and chronicles will follow as we get closer.

Also if it helps any I can move up the starting time by 1 hour making it 6pm PDT (1am GMT). Let me know if this is something that everyone would prefer. I wont make this change till I have heard from the full table.

Yes this is fine. A lot can change in two weeks. Assuming everyone who signed up is good to go then this will fill the table.

This may or may not be an issue for me - I may be flying back from a work trip and the extra hour might make a difference. I'll know more by the end of this week.

By-the-way - a little recommendation regarding the FG forums. Try not to go back and edit your posts with info you want everyone to see. Editing does not send an update email out to the thread subscribers so it is very easy to miss the edited info as a lot of us will just read the original post email and not see the edited text in the forum.

Thanks for the info on updating. I didn't know that. I think starting 1 hour early wont be a problem, but I want to make sure with the other players.

August 27th, 2013, 01:23
I might be able to start 30 minutes earlier but an hour would be pushing it for me.

Nightfiend
August 27th, 2013, 01:28
Ok, so fare I have the following for starting the game at 6pm PDT (1am GMT). This will be an hour earlier then posted. I'm looking for input from the other players if this would be acceptable or not.

Trenloe = Yes
Dakaden = No but 30 min = yes

Nightfiend
August 27th, 2013, 01:31
What I might do is open the game up an hour early and see. If we have everyone early we can get started. If not we will wait till everyone is on board.

That works for me. I can be available for either start times.

Nightfiend
August 27th, 2013, 04:07
My reason for trying to adjust the time was because a couple people stated that it was a simi-late start for them, so I was trying to accommodate a sooner start to make things a little easier. I wasn't sure if everyone was on board or not so I wanted to see what the others preferred. Ill open the game up at 6pm PDT and see who shows up but the official start time will be 7pm. We will start early if everyone shows up early, if not ill take advantage of all the experience in the room. )

Since season 5, has anyone notice a decrease in the game time without the side objectives? I love the fact of not having to be bothered with the small side missions, but I'm wondering if the lack of content has made any of the adventures dry.

Dakadin
August 27th, 2013, 05:14
That is understandable. :) If everyone else can make it at 6pm PDT, then I will see what I can do to get off work a bit early. :D

I've just got back from playing a face-to-face season 4 scenario which finished early, mainly because for this scenario in particular the faction missions required a bit of role-playing and that was catered for in the design of the scenario to allow for that time. With this now being season 5 we didn't do the faction missions.

Remember that season 5 scenarios generally have 2-3 faction specific options within the scenario that can give boons to members of the specific faction. Hopefully GMs will think about these and present them in an interesting way. Of course, it is completely possible that a scenario is played purely by PCs who are in the other 5 factions so it is possible that there will be no additional faction flavour.

There's also the additional secondary goal - which is not always obvious, so this can provide additional mystery to the scenario.

Time will tell if these are done well or not and if the new faction format is a success.

I was saying that I will probably need the extra hour (i.e. start at the original time) especially if flights get delayed. I'll know whether this is going to be an issue later in the week - the idea of starting when everyone arrives, early or not, could work...

LoL...ok I misunderstood. All is well, start time will be at 7pm PDT (2am GMT) as originally planed. For some reason I thought that everyone was having trouble with the start time. It looks as if everyone is actually ok with it now so we will stick to it.

Would you be willing to play with a new guy? I'd like to play PFS more often than I do now.

Hey! We're a friendly bunch and we'd love to play with someone new to Fantasy Grounds, although Pathfinder Society has rules restrictions on how many characters (6) can play in a scenario. It is possible to make an exception to this rule and accept a 7th player, but I'm not sure how it applies to online play. I guess Nightfiend (the GM) will speak to Trenloe (our Venture-Lieutenant) and figure it out. Hang on!

And welcome to FG; hope you enjoy yourself!

Hey Avro. Since all the other characters are around level 2, might be a good idea to bring a lower level character?

Nightfiend

Yep the level 6 will jump the tier to the 3-4 for sure. He said when he signed up had had a lower level and was placing the higher level in just in case we had the numbers for the higher tier.

Dragonmaster, First let me welcome you to fantasy grounds. Somewhat new to the mechanics myself I can testify to a couple things. First, there is a small learning cure to FG2. 2nd, The players and GMs here are very open to helping you learn to use the virtual table top. I have invested a few weeks learning the program and with the help of the other players I am already attempting to run my first game. Although I don't think I'm probably the best to learn from, I do think the players in this up coming game are very experienced.

The table is currently sitting at 6 players. Assuming everyone shows up the table will be full for this game. If you are interested you could sign up on the calendar as an alternative. Jump into the game when it opens up. If someone cant make it you will be the first alternative. If everyone shows up you are welcome to stay in the game and observe, ask question, and see how it works. I will be opening more games assuming I don't get utterly destroyed in my first game.

If you have any questions at this point, I welcome you to ask them here. Guidance is free. :D

In any case, does a Lvl 3 Character fit for this adventure if the group's Lvl calculates to 2 ? Or must it be a Lvl 1-2 Character?

Level 3 is fine, it will keep the average party level (APL) still just above 2 so the subtier played will be 1-2.

Since I'm new to the program, I have to ask if the Demo is enough to play with you, or if I need to buy the License first to be able to join you at all?
Also, how can I do an xml of my character for the DM (I'm not using HeroLab - I prefer to create my characters oldschool with a pecil and a bunch of books)

Nightfiend has an ultimate licence so you don't need to buy a licence to play. However, as you are doing your character old school I would recommend you get a lite licence. This will allow you to use the "manage character" functionality to create your PCs in FG and maintain them between games. It also allows you to export the PC XML and send it to the GM before the game so they can check it and load it into FG ready for the game. Plus, any changes you make to the PC during the game will be accessible to you afterwards. Without a lite licence you are relying on getting a copy of your PC to the GM and them having to manually load your PC into FG for you, and this would happen every time you played.

Level 3 is ok, as Trenloe pointed out that will make the APL of the group 2nd. A lit-license would be best if you want to learn FG and play somewhat often. If you are intending to run with the free wear version then post a copy of your character ASAP so I can create the XML for you. You will need to upload your character and a pdf version of your last chronicle. If you have played this character, and bought anything since the release of season 5, then you will need to upload your inventory sheet as well. Follow the link below to register for the game.

Make sure that anything you buy over 25 gp is now accompanied by an inventory sheet. Makes things a lot easier for the GM.

Introducing Teian-Ragath, the Holy Warrior of Ragathiel

Teian was born from an arranged marriage between the daughter of a noble from Magnimar and an influential Hellknight sorcerer of the Order of the Gate. Having an Aasimar son in Cheliax was a disastrous curse for his father. After years of shielding Teian from bullies, scorn and increasing violence, his mother fled overnight with Teian back for her homeland.

In Magnimar, he drew the attention from a cult of the empyreal lord Ragathiel. As celestial blood could not be traced back in either of his parents, and the familiarity of Teian’s childhood to Ragathiel's, they deemed Teian an Omen of Ragathiel’s Will. The cult convinced the family to take over the care of Teian, rebirthing him Teian-Ragath, and indoctrinating him to become a Holy Warrior of the Faith.

Teian was later sent to join the Pathfinder Society, to uphold the cause of the Silver Crusade and respond to the troubles at the Worldwound.

lachencery,

Just wanted to let you know, your last bought item, (armor) didn't get added to Teian. I am assuming because it was bought recently, you just forgot to add it to the character. If you want you can add it come game night, or make the change and upload a new xml, whatever is easier for you. Also nice character, is very spicy, and has an interesting back story tying in all the unusualness.

Gah! My bad actually! You just reminder me here I messed up my admin; in season 5, I am supposed to make purchases in presence of a GM, so I could not have bought that armor on my GM chronicle sheet. It will be at the beginning of this game. Since this game will be my 6th chronicle sheet, I have updated my inventory sheet with the right number. Attached to this message is the correct chronicle sheet #5 (from GMing).

Thanks for catching it! (And yes, I had forgotten to add the masterwork full plate on my character sheet; thanks for adding it.)

Welcome BridgetWilkerson I downloaded your character and updated it in FG. I noted the items you wanted to buy on the note sections. As fare as upgrading a normal item to (MW), this can't be done nor can you upgrade a normal item to a special material. The following items can be bought but will have to be from scratch.
1. MW Brest Plate 350 gp
2. MW Cold Iron Longsword 3oo gp for (MW), 30 gp for Cold Iron= 330 gp
3. MW Alchemical Silver Longsword 300 gp for (MW), 90 gp for alchemical silver, and 15 gp for the long sword = 405 gp.
Total will come out to 1,085 GP
You currently have enough for this so these can be added to your sheet. (Note the following)
1. If you added the Cold Iron item to your character by mistake then I'm assuming you have a normal long sword in that slot that will be able to be sold.
2. Make sure to add the special material to the damage type so it will bypass the DR in FG
3. The alchemical silver weapon will deal 1 less damage because it is a softer material.
4. If you want to sell any of your existing items just list them in the note section and remove them from your inventory for encumbrance reasons. Seeing how you haven't yet played your first game at level 2, you will receive full value for the sold items.
5. Blaming Dakadin for the wrong price on the silver item LoL. :rv:

Assuming you want to buy them before the game and you have enough gold for them then you can add the items to your character and list them as items bought in the note section of the character. I believe Trenloe is going to add, effects to your character and hopefully re-post the xml to help save time. In regards to the Earthfire-Shuriken,I will have to find out if it is necessary to have completed that adventure path to be able to buy the items, specifically tied to that adventure.

These are listed as legal for PFS play so they can be purchased: http://paizo.com/pathfinderSociety/about/additionalResources

PFS doesn't tie things specifically to adventure paths, sourcebooks, etc.. Essentially, if it is legal for PFS play then it can be used (within the limits of any listed pre-requisites). If the player wants to create a background reason for having esoteric feats/traits/equipment/etc. it is up to them, but not a requirement.

I'm using Chrome and I experience this problem after visiting the Game Calendar. It switches the site to secure mode as confirmed by the https:// in the address field (url). At that point, Chrome refuses to open the manage attachment dialog. The work-around I have found is to close the window, come back to FG's site, and go straight to the forums, at which point Chrome is unsecured mode, and supports management attachments.

I'm not sure why Chrome is behaving this way. Other browsers might also behave this way - I didn't test it.

At the start of a Pathfinder’s career, you are allowed to
adjust your character before settling in for the long haul.
Before you level up a character for the first time, you
may change any aspect of it except its Pathfinder Society
Number. Changes may only be made between adventures
and before playing as a character above 1st level.

First bold area supports 3rd chronicle.
Second bold area supports beginning of 4th.
A little confusing. Maybe Trenloe can key in on this and shed some light.

Wow... I have complicated things a little :). But I believe everything is fine now. I am registered with the character. Sorry about that, I thought it was already done.

On the purchases, instead of the alchemical silver short sword I'll go the cold iron route so that I can avoid the minus in the attack. :) I'll sell back the extra swords i'm not using. Please let me know if there is anything I've forgotten or didn't do :).

Thank you guys for helping with the effects. Guess I'm not familiar enough to program everything by myself yet.
BTW since I made the xml in a rush, I completely forgot to note 2 important Abilities of my character:
"Lore" can be used to take 20 on 1 Knowledge check per day, and "Magic Lore" enables my Character to find and disable magic traps just like a Rogue does with his trapfinding ability. You can look them both up in the Advanced Players Guide, where they are listed for the Archivist Archetype of the Bard.
The Master of Styles Archetype belongs to the Monk BTW, I don't guess everyone reads those books completely and remembers everything.
One exotic Item of mine you might need to know of is a Jade Wayfinder. It works just like the Standard Wayfinder, but has the "Light" Spell replaced by "Guidance". It's from the Pathfinder Society Field Guide.

About the Items-Shopping: You mean the Note Section in the virtual character sheet, right? I wouldn't bother you with it but PFS rules say that the GM has to be present when buying stuff. Or how do you guys handle this?
One last Question: What about the Chronicle Sheets from an online adventure? You send it per e-mail or what? Sorry for the stupid questions, but I'm the new guy.

Is it helpful if I write in more detail when I write about shopping?
A Mithral Longsword costs 1015 gp (500 per pound, or is this calculated AFTER reducing it's weight, which would half the price?)
An Earthfire Shuriken costs 400 gp and sets a target on fire when it doesn't make a DC 15 Reflex save when hit. Each round the target takes 1d6 fire damage until it can make the save to put out the flames.
Also, I need a Masterworks Thief's Tools for 100 gp to prevent killing myself while trying to disable a trap. I had an issue with this on my last game.
I'd sell my normal Longsword getting 7,5 gp for it.
All together this should cost 1507,5 gp which fits my budget well (around 1800 gp says my last chronicle sheet)

That's why people note them there so that the GM is aware of them and they can be put on the next chronicle sheet before signing.


One last Question: What about the Chronicle Sheets from an online adventure? You send it per e-mail or what? Sorry for the stupid questions, but I'm the new guy.
GMs usually attach them to the thread or put them in a dropbox folder and attach a link to that folder here. A GM will usually issue a draft sheet and then you will need to work with the GM after the scenario to complete the chronicle sheet with all information as once the sheet is digitally signed it can't be modified.

Have a look at other game threads to see how GMs have gone through the process - each GM may do it a little differently, but the end result should be a fully completed, signed chronicle sheet.

The in-game character sheet will stay attached after the game is over, allowing me to review it after the game for items players have listed that they would like to sell or buy. you can include as much information as you would like in this area. I will complete the chronicle and post it to the announcement web page. If there is something you would like different then what is listed, or if something is incorrect on the chronicle you can post a reply about it on same web posting. If you wish to buy an item before the game has started then you will list the item in the note section noting that it was an item bought before the game started and place the item on the character to be used during the scenario. I will list that item on the chronicle at the end of the scenario.

I posted this question today on Paizo and pretty much got the same response Trenloe replied with. It is ok to redo your character and have things posted on the 4th sheet as long as you let the GM know this is to be done before the game starts so he can sign off on it.

Also your last chronicle has the number 59603-01, this number belongs to MoreQuesse your first character. I think Teian-Ragath is your 2nd character, so you might want to change this on his chronicles. I will note the 59603-02 on the new one for this scenario.

Thank you for taking care of that Bridget. I have noted the items you would like to buy and all looks fine. I do have a question regarding your current inventory. It shows you have a long-sword, a short-sword, and a cold iron long-sword. Is the cold iron long-sword currently in your inventory? Or was that put there in anticipation of buying one?

Mithral long sword seems to be a long debate on the the way to calculate the cost. If based on the original weapon would be 2 lbs for a small long sword, and cost 1000gp in mithral + 15 for base price. 1015 gp. A lot of argument on the boards on this price being calculated based on the weight of the mithral item which would be 1/2. I am going to reserve making a decision on this till I have more input.

Nightfiend
September 5th, 2013, 04:29
Ok Dragonmaster_Ben

I have inputted what I could into Hero Labs. I have added the items that you listed you wanted to buy. This includes the long sword. At the moment I am considering the price on that to be based on the original swords weight, but I am waiting to see if Tranloe or, one of our more experienced GM's will weigh in on the subject. The price will not be deducted from your gold till the new chronicle is calculated.

There are a few things that needed addressing. I will list the areas that got flagged in hero labs and needed to be reconsidered.

1. Monk requires you to be lawful of some type. Chaotic is not the right path for a monk. In order for this to pass with Hero Labs I adjusted you to LN. This can be changed at your request.

2. Obsessive requires you to select a profession or craft skill to gain its bonus. As fare as I can tell perform is not a profession or a craft. With your design I removed obsessive and added Academician (Alternative Racial trait) gives a +2 to a knowledge of your choice. I chose (Knowledge Local). Again this can be removed or changed at your choice.

3. You could select 2 more languages I selected Osiriani and Varisian. This can change at your request.

4. Flurry of blows is forfeited for your monk archetype.

5. Ugly old-man picture is now mandatory for making me do all this work LoL.;);););)



I will be exporting this into xml format and uploading it to FG. If you would like to make changes to this let me know. If you like the character pdf, Hero Labs allows you to create and print out these at will, export out to fantasy grounds, and keeps track of you scenarios, PP, and fame. You do spend a little on the program but it just ROCKS for fantasy games.

September 5th, 2013, 06:25
Ok after up loading this to FG, I was able to add what effects I think I could muster. I'm sure there is some that could be better. If some of our more Pro players could look this over and add what you think would help, we should be good to go.

Also Dragonmaster another thing I found after upload was done. You took the trait Guardian of the forge. This is a religious trait for the dwarven god Torag. You currently have Irori as your current god. You will either need to change gods or select a different trait.

Welcome to the Fg forums.

This one-off game is full for tonight.

Nightfiend may allow you to join and lurk (quietly) - but I'm afraid we won't have time to handle questions during the game as this is a PFS scenario that has to be completed in the 1 session we have tonight so we will be limited in time.

It's up to the GM...

If you have general questions about getting setup to play PFS on Fantasy Grounds and you're not set up ready to go now (FG installed, TeamSpeak installed and have a headset with built in mic) it may be better if you read through the sticky threads in this Pathfinder Society forum and get yourself prepared for a future game that way.

Dragonmaster_Ben
September 5th, 2013, 19:19
I didn't realize that I lost track of some details there. Sorry for that! Here's what I change:

-Instead of the Guardian-Trait I choose "Scholar of the Great Beyond", effectively only moving a +1 Bonus from Engineering- to Planes-Knowledge.
-I wondered about Academician on my paper-sheet, thanks for reminding me that it's an alternate racial trait. I need to put it on History.

Everything else is ok with me:
Lawful Alignment will fit my character fine. LN will be ok I think.
I'm also ok with the languages.
Sorry for the Flurry of Blows. I leveled Grimm in a rush last weekend since our group had time-issues with the game-slots. I just forgot about that, but I'l keep the Archetype.

And then there's questions again: First of all, why does my character own 49 earthfire shurikens? I'd be fine with it, but is this correct? Second, are those destroyed if they hit an enemy? I mean, they are magic and all...
And last but now least: I have no clue how to import any of those files into my FG. When I click on "Manage characters" the only options are to build a new one or change existing ones, but there's no import function. Although I activated player's license.

(49) is obviously incorrect, (Wooot I'm rich, I'm rich!), it is (1). By default Hero Labs adds 50. I thought I had removed them down to (1), but it only removed (1). This has been corrected. Ill post the new pdf and a copy of your xml when the scenario is finished.

Shurikin being used up as a consumable. Answer to this should be no. this is a magic weapon, not an ammunition, so you should be able to retrieve it and reuse it like a spear or throwing axe.

There is an import tool that came with the software. you just need to know where to get it. You click on start menu, then all programs, then fantasy grounds II, then FG APP folder, then utilities. inside this folder is the tool to import and convert things to fantasy grounds. On the fantasy grounds web sight there is a tutorial that will walk you through it. You can import an xml from FG to FG and you can convert a Hero Labs character into FG.

Yes, but did you consider what the Core Rules say about Shuriken? "A shuriken is a small piece of metal with sharpened edges, designed for throwing. A shuriken can't be used as a melee weapon. Although they are thrown weapons, shuriken are treated as ammunition for the purposes of drawing them, crafting masterwork or otherwise special versions of them, and what happens to them after they are thrown."
EDIT: You already answered that in the meantime. Well, the weapon sounded too good to be true... It will be saved for a critical moment when heads of the party are rolling :P

(Make note) Use the character i have on file for tonight. what this means is when you log into the game tonight don't click the black upload button, wait for the characters to populate. You should see all the characters that will be here tonight. Yours will be included, then select your character from the there. I will assign the token from your character sheet. This will allow the sizing of the tokens to be the same. BTW I was kidding about your characters picture! If you have an image you like you can open the FG APP file and then click portraits. you can drag and drop an image into this folder and it should be available for you to use.

I'm totally ok with you jumping in and checking things out. This game will ahve (6) players and a pet so, as Trenloe stated, there wont be a lot of time for questions. Myself or others in the game will be happy to answer anything you have on these message boards and seeing we have another new player in the game tonight if I have time I might allow a small break for questions. This will depend on how quickly the game moves and how hungry the players get.

If you change your mind about the Earthfire shurikin before the game it is ok to remove it and not buy it.

Yes, it might be better to not buy it and use the money for some other equipment instead. I'd rather save it for a later game.

There is an import tool that came with the software. you just need to know where to get it. You click on start menu, then all programs, then fantasy grounds II, then FG APP folder, then utilities. inside this folder is the tool to import and convert things to fantasy grounds. On the fantasy grounds web sight there is a tutorial that will walk you through it. You can import an xml from FG to FG and you can convert a Hero Labs character into FG.
This is covered in the thread I linked to in post #101. The instructions were written specifically for importing characters for PFS games.

Thanks Trenloe,

Hay what is your opinion on mithral weapon pricing? So fare I'm looking at 2 options being argued on the forums. 1st is 500 gp pr. pound of the original items weight. 2nd is 500 gp per. pound of the mithral items weight. The 2nd option would make the item 50% less then the first. So fare I have read arguments for both sides. I personally think the first option has more merit, because items with lower weigh end up coming close to, or less then, the cost of master work or silver. Both these qualities are present with mithral, and I don't see how the price of mithral being less then masterwork or silver making any sense.

Yeah, I'd say that it is the price per pound based off the weight of the normal weapon. This makes a mithral dagger 502gp rather than 252gp. HeroLab uses the original weight as well.

One last question then I should be good to go. Inventory sheets, Does the GM fill these out for the player or is it the player that updates this based on their chronicle?

The player updates them. There is no longer the requirement for the GM to initial entries on the sheet. Think of this sheet as a table of contents with the bought, sold, used columns referring to the chronicle sheet number where that action occurred. All purchases and sales must still be put on the chronicle sheet and signed by the GM so that is where the GM is involved. It is up to the player to keep an accurate inventory tracking sheet for all purchases above 25gp since the start of season 5 (August 15th).

Wow... I have complicated things a little :). But I believe everything is fine now. I am registered with the character. Sorry about that, I thought it was already done.

On the purchases, instead of the alchemical silver short sword I'll go the cold iron route so that I can avoid the minus in the attack. :) I'll sell back the extra swords i'm not using. Please let me know if there is anything I've forgotten or didn't do :).

Thank you :)

Hay Bridget,
I went online and added you to to the game at Paizo. It now recognizes your number and auto populates your information. (Note the following) Your name is coming up as Haven1. If this is intended then things went well, if not I'm just letting you know. Also Paizo has Haven registered as Silver Crusade. Your last chronicle has Grand Lodge so one of these is wrong. I need to know which faction to report to if you are successful tonight.

Looking forward to a fun game tonight.

Her character wasn't showing up because of a bug in Paizo website. It didn't show a character named Haven but wouldn't allow her to add it because it said it was already in use. We added the 1 to the end of the name so she would have a character listed with her PFS account.

It means someone else has already registered Haven as a name for one of their PCs. A bit of a pain that you have to use a unique PC name across all 100,000+ registered players.

BridgetWilkerson,

Before the scenario, I bought a masterwork full plate (1,650 gp). After the scenario, I am buying five alchemist's fires (100 gp).

During the scenario, one charge of my wand of cure light wounds was consumed.

Attached is my boon chronicle sheet (Silver Crusade) as you asked yesterday. Thanks to Trenloe for marking it off.

It should be Silver Crusade. I picked the other one at character creation and then when it came to the last game and the time I had to commit I picked Silver Crusade.

I'll also purchase five alchemist's fires (100 gp). I'm an elf and didn't think i'd need them. HAHAHAHA

Ok downloaded the form, and I am ready to go with it. Do i need to redo these into the new form and re-upload it? Then question #2, after reading some of the discussion about the chronicle, have we determined if these are legal or not? If not I do have a scanner and can hand sign the PDF if need be.

Yes, doing an electronic chronicle that has all of the information specific to what the PC earned in the scenario, is in the same format as the current chronicle sheet, has all of the correct player and GM info and is electronically signed is absolutely fine and PFS legal.

I noted only 2 uses of Cure Light Wounds. If you remember me using it any more times, you're invited to remind me of the situations. I remember healing myself when the spiders attacked me and one time healing the Paladin. The cleric cared for the groop's health most of the time.

Question: As a Lvl 3 Character, doesn't Grimm fall into the "Out-of-Subtier" Category listed in the current Guide to PFSOP page 32? My last GM applied it on me after playing a Tier 1 - 2 Scenario and told me it was to not weaken my character, so he gave me average gold as listed (It was about 1200 gp, average from 519gp on Tier 1-2 and 1888gp on Tier 4-5). You can see that on my last Chronicle sheet https://www.dropbox.com/s/tlq88bqexwv7z2h/PFS%20Status%203_9_13.pdf
Here is what the Guide says:
"Out-of-Subtier gold: The Out-of-Subtier value was introduced in Season 5; therefore, Chronicle sheets from Seasons 0–4 do not include these wealth tables for normal or slow progression. The Out-of Subtier gold value is the average of the high and low subtiers; for slow progression it is half the normal Out-of-Subtier value, rounded down."
So don't I get more than just 501gp? It seems very little to me.

At the beginning of the scenario I asked everyone to keep track of their consumables in the note section of their character sheet. At the end of the scenario I noted you had nothing noted. Knowing you had consumed some charges from your CLW wand, I asked you why this wasn't noted in the note section, as I had requested. You stated, "I keep track on my inventory sheet." I asked you how many usage's you had listed down on that sheet. You stated " I have no idea." I Then requested you post a copy of the sheet on the message board so I could compare it to the one I had on file. I gave multiple days for this to happen, and I still haven't seen the sheet. So I did the next best thing, which was a rough estimate rounding UP to what I thought it was. After posting 4 usage's on your chronicle, I now get a response that I overestimated. Funny how that worked out. Thank you for replying, although I still haven't seen the sheet. Not that it matters at this point. I personally don't think 2 usage's of the CLW wand is even worth discussing, so I will make the correction as requested. In the future, to avoid this kind of misunderstanding, please follow instruction when it comes to the documentation I require to complete things in a timely manner. An argument could be made it that it is the responsibility of the GM to track all the consumables. In most cases I would agree, but in this case I was extremely inundated with keeping the scenario going, tracking all the npc stuff and trying to teach the new player in the group how to play using the FG frame work. Keep in mind I just stayed up all night, no less then six strait hours, working on your character to get it ready to play. As fare as the sub-tier gold, I will look into this and make the correction for I believe you are correct.

September 9th, 2013, 10:32
Excuse me Nightfiend, but I wrote the status of all my wands in the FG chat window when we were ending our game, so you could compare the new sheet status with the one you downloaded. Because of this, I was assuming you had the information already and was surprised by myself to read your question. Before this I did get no request to post the remaining charges again in the forums whatsoever. I don't get why this was so important to you anyway, because I kept track of my charges myself. I crossed a field everytime I used a wand, because that's what the sheet is for. So you don't have to mind everything by yourself, since I kept my sheet actualized while gaming.
So this seems to be a misunderstanding. I hope you won't hold a grudge for no reason.


At the beginning of the scenario I asked everyone to keep track of their consumables in the note section of their character sheet.
Also, I wasn't aware that included every charge of my wands. I bought all the new items before the scenario and nothing during the game, so I thought there was nothing to note. Please don't blame me for not knowing your house rules.

I think what we can learn out of it is that we shouldn't asume any arrangement during a game to be sure. (Since we did a long game and everybody was tired) Better to post everything important on the forums again, than to asume nobody missed anything important. Posts can be reread at any time.

I don't mean to interfere, but, for future reference, the chat window is logged on the server side in the file chatlog.html in the campaign directory.

As GM, I use it in almost every scenario I run to track back information that happened during the game.

I do not hold grudges, so rest assure this is not the case. I asked everyone to list consumables in the note section of their character. Throughout the scenario, as people used things, I asked again with each usage to note the usage in the notes. I don't doubt you correctly had marked this on your paper sheet. I did not look at the chat log when I logged out, because I made no assumption it would be there, seeing I had asked for this information in the note section. No one else had any problem with this request. The reason for this, is because I am required to note the usage on the chronicle and sign off on it. As fare as I know, this is an expectation of every GM. You guys fought hard and long and deserve what you earned so please enjoy the chronicle. Helping the GM document things as the game progresses speeds things along. I try and keep up with consumables, but I like to confirm what I have with the player, so I can make sure the chronicle is correct.
