Grand Lodge *** Venture-Lieutenant, South Carolina—Rock Hill aka BlackWyvern

We had 5 players show up last thursday and we had 6 players this thursday. I just got a request asking if we had space for a full group of 3-5 folks to join, so I'm working on getting a GM lined up for a second table so things look to be picking up! I still plan to hold the Saturday events for the foreseeable future.

Grand Lodge *** Venture-Lieutenant, South Carolina—Rock Hill aka BlackWyvern

Hey guys and ghouls! Just wanted to let you guys know that we have started up weekly PFS sessions at Above Board Games in Fort Mill on Thursday nights from 6-10. You can find an event schedule under the Paizo Pathfinder Society Events section. We've got one session under our belts and hope to see some new pathfinders join the ranks!

Yeah - I'll be there!

What do you want me to run? How about Glass River and Stolen Heir. Is anyone up there wanting to get in a particular scenario before SCARAB or trying to get that last scenario to level before SCARAB? If so I can run something to accommodate higher level characters.

I want to break 450 tables at SCARAB so I need to get ten sessions between now and then, so I am not sure that is going to happen but I'm going to try.

Those sound great! We've had several new additions to our gaming group that will fit in that tier. I'll go ahead and put those on the schedule.

I don't know that we have any people looking to finish up any scenarios or level, but there are several of us that are looking forward to SCARAB!

I have nothing to do in December, I may come up for that game day and run some stuff.

Del,

We would love to have you join us on the 21st if you have that day available (I know we are getting close in to Christmas at that point). I was planning on running some Thornkeep stuff but will be happy to swap out with whatever you would like to run.

I had a great time gaming with you guys! I look forward to the next session. I might be able to stay for 2 games next time--I had to get back home to tackle some writing. Always projects to be worked on. :)

Glad you could come out and game with us. It was a pleasure to meet you and I look forward to seeing you again at ABG or at other upcoming events.

We had a couple of new faces at the event this past Saturday and I am really excited to see everyone at our next event.

I am wiped out after Gen Con this weekend and will probably not make this one.

I can understand. I hope you guys had a good time. I'm planning on being at the Firefly event in September so look to see you guys then.

Grand Lodge *** Venture-Lieutenant, South Carolina—Rock Hill aka BlackWyvern

I'll go ahead and plan to be at ABG by noon so if you want to swing by prior to game start we can chat. I'm not currently running any sessions myself (got my minions to do it this time!) so I should be fairly available the whole time.

If you haven't looked at the PFS Guide to Organized Play I would recommend taking a look at the doc. It's free to download from paizo and has a lot of info especially regarding character creation so you can go ahead and get a character started if you like.

Grand Lodge *** Venture-Lieutenant, South Carolina—Rock Hill aka BlackWyvern

Dell,
I'll pass the info along to the rest of the Fort Mill group regarding the Firefly event and try to get a group rounded up to come. Really looking forward to it. You guys got a warhorn site up yet with the schedule?

Christina, Here I was thinking that I had some new blood coming to the group and that I might need to help get you rolling. Now I come to find out you are writting some of the pathfinder content ... Now I'll have someone I can ask questions :)!

Del,
Always glad to have you and your crew up for some gaming so feel free to join us anytime.

Christina,
It would be great to meet you and add another player to our group. Let me know if you have any questions regarding PFS or the sessions at Above Board Games.

There are probably 3 or 4 players that have characters in that range that might be interested in coming to MACE West.

Grand Lodge *** Venture-Lieutenant, South Carolina—Rock Hill aka BlackWyvern

Wow just noticed that you wrote the Refuge of Time scenario!! Congrats! Heck lets play that one even if I got to Pregen it!

Grand Lodge *** Venture-Lieutenant, South Carolina—Rock Hill aka BlackWyvern

I personally would like to play the Rise of the Runelords content. I think Burnt Offerings is tier 3-5 so most of our Fort Mill group will have characters for that level. The Eyes of the Ten series is probably too high for most of our players. In fact I don't think any of us have a level appropriate character (I could be mistaken).

Refuge of Time looks nice. I like the season 4 content but I think most of the Fort Mill group would struggle to find level appropriate characters but there might be a few.

MACE West is April 5th, 6th, & 7th in Hickory, NC.

Would the Fort Mill group be more excited about playing Eyes of the Ten Parts 1-4, Refuge of Time, or Rise of the Runelords - Burnt Offerings - Thistletop?

It would be really nice of Paizo to start posting some examples of the rules in action in some monster versus PC type formats. I would love to see an Otyugh or Shambling Mound versus 3-4 PC melee characters to demonstrate how they expect this to resolve. Also a definition of "conduct the grapple normally" would be nice. My interpretation of that is that once a creature smacks you with an attack and establishes a hold it brings in the other appendages and tries to establish a hold losing any additional attacks (normal grapple) or are all the other appendages flailing around smacking at things and trying to grab things if they hit (-20 to checks).

It makes a lot of difference if the -20 comes into play if the creatures also have constrict. I submit a definition of "conduct the grapple normally" as choosing to give up additional attacks and focusing on maintaining a hold on the target hit with the initiating grab attack.

I find it unbalanced when I see GMs running these multiple attack grab + constrict creatures and they are smacking the PCs over and over again with an un penalized CMB that auto inflicts constrict damage. It doesn't seem to be what was intended. If a creature wants to flail around with these independent appendages grabbing and constricting they need to take the penalty for it.

Paizo needs to finish the work they began and get these grappling rules "pinned down". Pardon the pun.

I hope everyone had as much fun playing as I had GMing! Great turn out and just lots of fun all around. I even got my first GM star! Woot!

Looking forward to seeing you guys again at either Firefly or at the next ABG event day.

Grand Lodge *** Venture-Lieutenant, South Carolina—Rock Hill aka BlackWyvern

I plan on making it to some if not all the SCARAB events. I might have to make a sizable donation to the marriage fund, but I plan to be there even if I have to fake a kidnapping.

Grand Lodge *** Venture-Lieutenant, South Carolina—Rock Hill aka BlackWyvern

I got to play both the Diamond Gate and Rise of the Goblin Guid at Dragon Con and I'm looking forward to GMing them both at the ABG event.

I hope that I can make both scenarios as fun and interesting as the sessions at Dragon Con!

Next month, (september) I would love to come down and play. As long as there might be beginning level adventures. I am a new PFS player (never actually done any organized play). I can only make it to Fort Mill on the weekends though.

The scenarios usually get posted here in the forums and on the Pathfinder Society Fort Mill Facebook page. We normally run scenarios at both afternoon and evening sessions for lower levels and if we know you're coming we will make sure there is something that is appropriate level for you to play.

We are always anxious to have new players join us.

Another great game day Saturday at ABG! Thanks Del for Shades of Ice scenarios. Both sessions were a lot of fun. I still find myself morbidly wondering "what does bone bread taste like anyway …?"

Looking forward to our September session.

Grand Lodge *** Venture-Lieutenant, South Carolina—Rock Hill aka BlackWyvern

Wow! Great PFS session this weekend at Above Board Games! Glad to see so many people come out for the event. Thanks to Del for coming and running The Cyphermage Dilemma for us and thanks to Cat and Tigersage for running the other sessions. Hope to see everybody back at the next PFS event at ABG hopefully in August.

Grand Lodge *** Venture-Lieutenant, South Carolina—Rock Hill aka BlackWyvern

@TigerSage - Thanks for running the Feast of Ravenmoor module for us. Loved it! Really great combo of RP and combats.

I really liked breaking to grab a bite to eat right after the in-game feast. It really made for a great appetite suppressor.
