This should be a lot of fun! Last year I gave Pathfinder Society Scenario #23: Tide of Morning a tune-up and rediscovered what a delightful gem it is. This year I'm happy to run that adventure or just about any other Season 0 non-retired adventure. As in past years, this involves updating stat blocks, making minor changes as needed to match current style standards, and providing a new Chronicle sheet with some enticing gear and boons. For this special event only, you're also able to replay the adventure for credit (just not with a character who already has a Chronicle sheet for the scenario).

If you secure a seat for this event, please list your preferences for which adventure we should run. Any of the following information is helpful:

  • Which scenarios in particular you'd like to play
  • Which tiers you want (or want to avoid, especially if you don't have higher level characters)
  • Which scenarios from Season 0 you've never played (I do enjoy having players experience a few surprises)

    We can discuss our options here. Within a week of the lottery assignments being finalized, I'd love to have 2–3 promising scenarios that I can choose from, then I'll announce the final choice shortly after that.

    Remember, this is a sanctioned Pathfinder Society Roleplaying Guild game, so I do expect you to have a legal character with any Chronicle sheet records. If you're unfamiliar with the organized play campaign, don't worry; we have a wealth of pregenerated characters available, and we can direct folks to resources for building a 1st-level character if we do a lower level game. Once you're at the table for this event, you'll find organized play isn't dramatically different from a home game.

    Looking forward to playing at your table, John! My vote goes to the very first PFS scenario, #1: Silent Tide. Despite being a very old scenario, it still has a respectable 4.2 star rating, so I believe it'd be fun to play.

    However, I'm fine with any Season 0 scenario since I haven't actually played any of them before. I have characters for every subtier except 10-11.


    My wife and I are both signed up and were hoping to run our 8th and 9th level characters. This will be one of the only games we have that is not in the ballroom, which is our best opportunity to play our roleplaying-heavy characters.

    We can cover most slots above level 2, though. We'll look through the list of what's available to see if we have any other recommendations.

    Curses! That post from handoftrace was supposed to be from my account. I had logged in under her account to verify her schedule in a different window. When I came back here, my post posted under her account.


    I'm really looking forward to this! I'd prefer a lower-level (my highest PFS character is 5th level), but, I can always pre-gen if everyone would prefer that.

    Currently, I have made it into the other Season 0 (on Sunday). It sounds like they'll be doing Eternal Obelisk, a 5-9.
    As i have found out since then, i may be called in Sunday for work the first half of the day-- i might be able to fudge my way in to being there on time, but would prefer to really take the time to get into the atmosphere of such an event. Would anyone here be able to accept my trade so i could participate in the Saturday season zero instead? I have characters in every level range, and have played no season zero retired scenarios before.

  • I am very flexible I regards to what you want to play. Has the shortlist been finalized yet for us to vote on? Are will it be more arbitrary? Just checking I since we only a few days away at this point. Thanks! Looking forward to it!


    I'm fine with just about anything but Black Waters (which I've played and run multiple times).

    I've posted the ones I've *played* below, since I've only played a few:

    0-05 Mists of Mwangi
    0-06 Black Waters
    0-07 Among the Living
    0-13 Prince of Augustana
    0-20 King Xeros of Old Azlant

    I'm fine with any Tier, as I can play a character or a pregen.

    With numerous people who don't have higher-level characters and most who have never played Silent Tide, I'm going to refurbish that gem. It should make for a fun experience!

    Looking forward to it! I will be bringing something that should be in the 3-5 range, so hope to play high-tier on this one. Let us know what else we can do in advance of the scenario to help you/get ready.


    Awesome - I'm running Silent Tide at Origins as a new GM (1 PFS credit to my name), so I'm looking forward to playing it with you running it first!
