      Description

      GameMode: Pathfinder


      MAKE HISTORY!

      The Pathfinder Society is an eccentric organization of adventurers, explorers, and scholars with agents spread across Golarion and beyond. While members are expected to be fairly self-sufficient, the organization's leadership knows that those equipped with the knowledge and gear to face the challenges of the job are most likely to survive to bring back priceless treasures and to fill the Pathfinder Chronicles with tales of their daring exploits. The Pathfinder Society Field Guide breaks down what it means to be a Pathfinder and gives players and GMs tools to build characters and campaigns around the illustrious organization. In addition, all content within this book is 100% legal for use in the world-spanning Pathfinder Society Organized Play campaign.

      Within this 64-page book, Pathfinders will find:
      An overview of Absalom, City at the Center of the World, where the Pathfinder Society keeps its headquarters
      Details on 10 factions within the Pathfinder Society, and the benefits available to those agents loyal to each
      New archetypes for Pathfinders of all three branches of the organization: the Scrolls, the Spells, and the Swords
      A complete field guide covering threats to Pathfinder agents, as well as suggestions on building PCs prepared to face them
      Rules for day jobs and professions, property, followers, and other ways to customize your character
      A system for turning characters' fame and prestige into valuable in-game rewards
      Dozens of new spells, magic items, specialized adventuring tools, and more!
      The Pathfinder Society Field Guide is intended for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and the Pathfinder campaign setting, but can easily be used in any fantasy game setting.

        I just uploaded it to my pfs branch and issues a pull request to have it pulled into the main pcgen repo. But it make tay a day or so because 6.02.1 was just released and I think they are doing some maintenance with branches to prepare for the next version or revision.

        I've been doing some tinkering with it to get it to work on my own, but I did encounter two bugs with your hacked-together grenadier achetype, if you're interested.

        One: It doesn't play nice with a PFS Alchemist who drops the Brew Potion feat for Extra Bombs.
        Two: It does not seem to award the martial weapon proficiency.

        yes. I had already discovered #1. that is caused by the gtop source removing the brew potion in error. Who ever added that to gtop did not realize that brew potion is still actually a class feature that can be replaced by another archetype. I think I sent to GitHub an update to gtop that addresses that. But I didn't notice the martial weapon proficiency issue. I might be able to look at it tomorrow, but I'm travelling on Friday so it may be Saturday before I can check the #2 item.

        Buddy take as long as you need. I've hacked together a solution and it's not even for a character I currently intend on playing. I'm sure you have much more important stuff to do.
