The team and I spent some time last week going over our blog schedule. I am flabbergasted that we are 7 short weeks to the end of
47162016. How did so much time pass so quickly? Looking back, the answer is in a blur of conventions, Venture-Officer promotions/resignations, spreadsheets, and meetings. I think they rest of the team may add development, planning, and devious plans to the list! One thing it reinforces—there is lots of Pathfinder Society happening around the world. None of which would happen without the support of our huge force of volunteers!
5 Star GMs
One of my greatest pleasures is recognizing our volunteers. Today, I get to revel the newest batch of 5 star GMs. These folks have put in well over 700 hours of table time, not to mention the countless hours of preparation. They come from all over the globe—Australia, England, France, the US and Canada—truly an international crew! I tip my hat to those achieving their fifth star and extend a heartfelt thank you
for the time and energy all our volunteers dedicate to the Pathfinder Society. Vivat!
Pathfinder Adventure Card Guild
While Adventure Card Guild doesn't have a ranking system for GMs, mostly because it doesn't have GMs, we do have several volunteers that dedicate hours of their time testing mechanics and assisting in growing our organized play program. I would like to thank the individuals listed below for helping out above and beyond!
Mummy's Mask Base Sets are speeding out of the warehouse and into venues, homes, and retail locations near you. Friday the 4th saw the release of Season of Plundered Tombs scenarios 3-1A & 3-1B. We continued the release pattern with 3-1C available for play last week. We anticipate releasing one scenario a week through May, skipping the week of December 28th. Once an entire Adventure Path is complete, we will make it available for sale on paizo.com. Check out our Pathfinder Society Event Listings to find a play location near you! If you don't find one, consider setting one up. I and the Venture Officer team are here to assist!
