Glass River Rescue:
I LOVE running this one, especially when the party gets to the inn and I get to roleplay as the old ladies.
Ive run this one around 7 times, and I think I am pretty good at convincing the players that the little old ladies are actually a coven of witches.
The one the players can see when they walk in the door is standing behind a large pot while chopping up some kind of meat with a large cleaver. Her apron is covered in blood. Her tiny dog (think chihuahua) is chewing on a bone much larger than it is. (Know Nature to identify the bone as being from a deer, or Heal to know it isnt from a humanoid).
Her sisters come in from the kitchen. One has red stains clear up to her elbows (she's making jam). The other is covered in blonde hair (corn silk).
Normally, the players want to keep an eye on them while they make dinner, so one person gets left behind, who I quickly position in the kitchen between the two sisters and make sure to mention the large knives nearby.
All that while using a frail old lady voice and holding my hands above the table, having them shake slightly when I do anything with them.
More than once it has resulted in the players attacking them.
Hi there poster,
Under 'Organized Play' there are two links which could prove helpful to you.
If you go to the Regional Coordinator page, you will find that there is a Venture Captain in Tulsa. Ive never met him, but he should be able to help you find a venue for games.
If you go to the 'Events' page, you should be able to find games that are currently scheduled to go off in your area (or at least I assume so, since right now I cant figure out how to look outside my own area lol).
Full disclosure, but of these are going to be specifcally for Pathfinder Society Organized Play. If you are looking for something more like a home group and less like organized play, the second page may not be of much use, but contacting the area Venture Captain may still be a good idea. He can probably give you some insight into places to check for groups looking for someone.
I hope that helps!
The Fox, one thing your examples didn't cover, which is what this topic was based around. Under "Cannot do" you've got "Play a 4th-level pregen and apply credit to Bob". Sure, you can't apply it to Bob, but your post doesn't explain if you can simply play a 4th level pregen when you've already got a 4th level character.
To answer the question...yes, you can play a pregen, but Bob couldnt get the credit since Bob is already level 4.

1. The examples the Fox lists in its (his? her?) previous post are very good.
2. Yes, the VL is mistaken. Do not report the incorrect handling directly to Mike. If the VL isnt willing to admit that they are wrong, it should be escelated to their VC, not to Mike.

John, if that hack Thursty can't meet his deadlines, I'll take this assignment. E mail sent to Mark ;)
If Larry writes it for real (or Thursty or a few others) I would definitely be willing to sacrifice some GM credit to get a character to a high enough level to play through this with the understanding that the character wouldnt likely ever be playable again.
Four years and six months ago, my friend Carl Harris brought forth to my attention, a new game we should try, conceived by Paizo, and dedicated to the proposition that all systems were NOT created equal (cause 4e was lame).
Carl played in a few sessions at our local gaming convention that year and became hooked. He quickly dragged me into it, and now, FINALLY, I get to publicly acknowledge all of the hard work he has put into this campaign to help make it grow.
Carl is a great GM and player. If you ever get a chance to sit at a table with him, you should take the opportunity.
Congratulations, Carl, on earning your fifth GM star!
You only need 80 more. :P
87? Pffft. There's 2.
1. You get seen.
Except that didnt happen in this case, which is the point.
The difference is that the different tiers often have access to different items, and sometimes those items are pretty cool.

Just tell them they need to play the one for the appropriate subtier, cause what you are suggesting someone might do sounds pretty close to breaking the Dont Be a Jerk Rule to me.

Neither one have been announced to my knowledge. Tim is still listed as a 4-Star, but Michael does indeed have 5 now. Does anyone know when he was bumped up?
Mike was announced at Gencon last year. Tim got his in October, I believe, though the system hasnt officially given it to him, yet for some reason (CS?).
Fixed that for you. Just because something can be attained in another way doesnt change the wording of the requirement.
In the past, rebuilds are given to people who actually have levels in a class that has had changes made to them (such as the Warpriest). So, to be consistant, rebuild options should be given to people who actually have levels in the Prestige Classes already, not to those who were simply planning on taking them at a later date.
Since Im sure that statement above wont be enough to do it for you, let me ask another question:
If I had a character who hadnt actually taken levels in Warpriest yet, but had planned to take a few later on, and I felt my character concept was ruined now because of the change, then should I have been allowed a rebuild?
IMO, no. Only characters who are currently being affected by the change to the class in which they have levels should be given a rebuild (if even then).
Its most likely a combination of population density, number of venues, geographic, and more.
Southern Illinois isnt a terribly populous region to oversee, but it stretches out quite a bit between locations, and if things were going well in an area I couldnt oversee personally most of the time, I would likely be requesting a VL for the specific area of the region.
However, different VOs do it different ways, I imagine. I likely want to handle it that way because thats how Bob handled it with me (He was VC of Central/Southern IL, I was VL) before Kristen and I were promoted to VC. He handled the middle of the state, and I took the southern end.
The con is only three weeks away, so dont miss your chance to sign up! Lots of fun to be had!
Interested in Core Campaign? weve had several inquiries about ndoing Core for the Season 2 Gencon special for Sunday afternoon, so we will be running at least one table of Core only during that!
Hope to see you there!
Over the past couple years, we have seen many more people clammoring for more low level play for the exact reason you state, roysier. Theyve played almost everything out there and have not enough material to get new characters started.
Im hoping with the introduction of the Core Campaign, this can be alleviated a little bit and perhaps we can go back to seeing more higher level scenarios being released.
Also, keep in mind that Season 6 still has 5 months worth of scenarios to be released, so there are hopefully a couple more 7-11s coming down the track!
I agree with Garrett, this was definitely unexpected!
Thanks very much everyone, and definitely to Bob and Mike VonHasseln for everything theyve done to help make our region grow.
And as Mike Mike VH mentioned, Kristen definitely deserves recognition, too. She has worked just as hard as I have, despite not holding a Venture title the whole time.

@ Lune: Aid Allies replaces the normal +2 you get for Aid Another, it doesnt stack.
You are both right and wrong here. Aid Allies and Swift Aid are both versions of Aid Another, and I agree, wouldnt stack. Benevolent is specifically designed to boost Aid Another, which both of the previous abilities use, so it most definitely WOULD stack with either of those.
Also, before someone suggests trying to stack Aid Allies from the Cavalier and the Helpful Halfling bonus to Aid Another, I dont believe those stack either. Both of them change out the flat bonus you give (3 and 4 respectively), instead of saying 'give an additional +1/+2' or something similar to what Benevolent says.
Assuming you have enough players on board with Core to make enough tables to do the Specials again, then yes, it is about replayability. Aside from scheduling conflicts or lack of players, I see no reason why you guys couldnt run the Specials again if you really wanted to.
I havent read much of this thread, but this is nothing but wrong. Ive got plenty of stuff left to play, definitely am not a new player, and I am more than a little bit interested in it. Not cause Im a VO, but because I am.
Edited to remove aggressiveness. Not my intention. Apologies.
Yea, I had apparently forgotten the lists were included in the CRB itself. Been a long time since I built either of those classes apparently. :P
