Oh, wow, MBtC. Congratulations. Your life will never be the same, and I mean that in the best possible way.


Kids are great! But I have to say, grand-kids are better!

So stupid question. Or more accurately: crunchy question. I kinda want to play Race. However, I also want to save that for a character who is about to hit 20, which should be maybe sometime in 2018? 2019 tops?

I have opportunity to use replay gizmos to replay. The question is, should I? Is the novelty of the content going to be enough to counteract that at level 19.6, me and my party are going to blow through this like a g~&@+!n freight train?

To phrase it differently, if I play this now will I set myself up to be bored when I play it with another, higher (much higher) level character?

Just register, and then put yourself down on the small backup list :)

There were links in the Update One and Update Two emails, mine initially went to my spam folder so it's worth checking to see if that's where they ended up.

In any case this is the reporting link for Gameday games that have been completed.

I would assume the normal 2 week abandonement period is shortened for a times game, especially since all the Gm's need to be in communication with one another, an absence would likely be noted sooner as well.

I would suggest that 24 hrs without a GM post should be grounds for a player to post a message in the GM thread calling for a backup GM for a day.


Agreed. In a timed special with backup GM's ready (and frequently champing at the bit) to step in if needed, there's really no need to let a table go dark.

I want players to be vocal when GMs get sick or disappear. We had a few GMs in Cosmic Captive who got sick and then disappeared for three days without telling anyone.

GMs, I want you to be proactive in using the backup system. Plan ahead. If you feel sick or stressed, let Shifty and others know right away.

We all need time off. That’s why the backup system exists!

Problem: The deadline for reporting Gameday games is 3 days away, but my game is nowhere near wrapped up (bear in mind we're one of the 'Round 2' set), and some of what I need to report (like Prestige earned and deaths) clearly hinges on the story being wrapped up. What should I do?

Report now.

Do boon rolls now.

Assume full prestige and that everyone is currently alive. Then finish the game as best as you can, and do chronicle sheets when you finish.

Keep the email receipt that you get when you report. If ANYTHING changes in the final tally, reply to that email or ping me, Magabeus, or GM Lorenzo. We will edit the final version to match.

Why am I having you guys report early? So that we can process all the player and GM boons and go through the process of closing down the Gameday. There is a lot of paperwork involved in conventions, and we would rather get the bulk of it done before the peak of holiday season.

Hmm

PS this is the equivalent of handing reporting early to your store organizer when the game store closes before you’re done, and you finish the last combat out in the parking lot.

GGG/WMIG: Shifty is talking about multi-table specials. He's saying that in specials where he is the overseer, he checks on all the tables and intervenes when needed.

For regular games as opposed to specials, we rely on the players to let us know when a table needs help because the GM is not around.

Hey Everyone,

GMs Poblano Peppers and Khaos Knight are working on converting the PFS Pregens to BB Code for PBP. It’s a big project and we could probably use a couple more people to help with it.

Interested? If so, check in here!

If you have herolab, that’s a few clicks. Isn’t it?

One: Not everyone has HeroLab.

Two: HeroLab can be wrong.

Three: Not all the pregens fit normal mechanics for their class, which would give HeroLab fits.

In the middle of prepping two tables for a local convention in just over a week, so unable to provide bandwidth for the project at the moment, but appreciate the effort being put in on it!

I'm not one of the online Venture Officers, and thus have no connection to the Game Days (other than being a GM/Player like everyone else), I'm just a wild-eyed loner running Multi-Table specials under my own banner.

Emphasis mine.

Points two and three are actually what slows the process down, I can use HL to create a 90% accurate statblock in a few clicks, but these are Pregens, we need 100% accuracy to the sheet, not the piece of software.

Where Hero Labs insert their 'short descriptions' we need to change it for the one on the actual Pregen sheet =)

Wei Ji, the best of luck in your Con! Don't worry if you can't help out this time around.

* This is a TIMED event, GM's need to be prepared for a consistent work rate during the period - and weekends do count against the timer :)
* Tables are to be held on the Paizo forums (with the exception of Arrowhawk on Mythweavers due to longstanding custom).
* No additional tables will be added.
* Sign-ups will be closed off once full, or no later than 21 Sep 17
* You can only GM one table.

Sign ups
This is a two-part process.

1: Register your details HERE
2: Select a table HERE

Player sign-ups will be open from 09 Dec

Is the GM sign up a first come, first serve type of thing? Or are specific GMs selected from the sign-ups? I'm fairly new to PBP GMing, but would like to get into helping run these interactives. Should I just claim an open table (I've done this in the meantime... the last 7-8 tier table)?

Hey, guys, there have been a few posts scattered around the forums raising questions about a particular rule, so I wanted to post here to make sure everyone is aware.

The rule is that a character can only be in one game at a time. Playing a game with a pregen when the credit will go to a character is considered to be playing that character for this rule. GM credit is an exception to this rule. Mustering is not considered to be playing that character, so it's OK to list your character's details for a new game while an old game finishes up, as long as it is done before the new game starts.

If you have any questions about this rule, please either post here or send me a PM.

Thank you, I see you both on the list. Last special the waitlist didn't end up waiting and I pulled most of them into active tasks.

@GM Ewok
AS above, I know how much time and effort (bandwidth) I have, and on Overseer update days I allow up to two hours, and other days is about an hour a day at least just to keep up to what the tables are doing, answering the bajillion PMs, and untangling various bits and pieces of general admin (like sorting back-up GMs etc). I am sure I could trim that time commitment down, but I take a personal interest in how the tables are progressing and what is going on - so I take the burden on the chin.

So yeah, there's certainly an outer edge of fun, and past 15 it gets really wobbly.

I am a huge fan of sticking to what I know I can 100% reliably deliver :)

Expert GM suggestions requested!

4-19 Fabric of Reality:
While the pathfinders are within the Hao Jin tapestry, one of the foes they encounter has Dismissal prepared, and the tactics block for said foe does state that they use it on the PCs. I'm assuming that if successful they end up sitting in front of the tapestry, but what happens if they hit that 20% chance to end up on the wrong plane? I'm hoping it doesn't come to that, but I'd like to get some input from anyone else who has run this.

** spoiler omitted **

Not an expert by any means, but heres my two cents:

:-):
I would cast the spell and roll a 1d100 for the target. Should the number fall within the 20%, roll another percentile dice to pick a plane of existence and leave it up to the dice. I am not sure how much farther to take it.. I would assume that the spell would put you someplace at least relatively safe and not say, inside a block of earth.. but I will leave that up to other contributors to answer. I mena.. an air breathing creature would be just as dead dropped into the middle of the plane of water, wouldn't they?

My opinion on it:
I'm assuming this would end up being a "condition" that needs fixing at the end of the scenario. That said, most other planes are likely to require a body recovery followed by a raise dead.

As this is a society game though, I'd probably not bother with the 20%, and just have them arrive back outside the tapestry. Either that or GM fiat them to arrive at the home of their deity, who can have a servant either Have Words with them or thank them depending on their behavior. No matter what, they would be gone from the encounter and probably the rest of the scenario unless they have a way to get back easily.
