Really? I read through the guidelines PDF was not getting the "loose and free" vibe at all.

In What way? What are you looking for?

For example most games I run or play in are Human Centric and don't allow any race outside the Core book, while PFS allows you to play kitsune, nagaji, tengu, and wayang and a bunch of other races through Boons you get at conventions.

Many GMs restrict classes outside the Core book while in PFS you can play all the classes, though there are some archetypes and prestige classes that are not allowed due to not fitting in the campaign or have power issues. But in general most stuff is actually allowed in PFS.

The biggest restrictions in PFS actually fall on the GMs who are limited in what they can change in the scenarios and modules that are run.

I can hook you up with PFS play in San Antonio and through the group you can find home games as well. Shoot me a PM I can send you the Contact info.

Also PFS is no more restrictive then any game I played with a GM or ran as a GM, in fact it is much less so then any game I have ever been in or ran.

I finished the Novel and left a Review on Audible. The only issues I had was that I have missed all the prior books (I did not take that into account with the review) and the pacing was a little fast for me, but that may be because I am so used to such slow paced novels.

Regarding the Expanded Narrative boon, that's something I'm willing to explore making more commonly available. One advantage of convention boons is that they allow the campaign to test out an idea, use it more if it works, or discontinue it if it doesn't without causing too much damage. So far the feedback I've heard about the Expanded Narrative boon is "This shouldn't be a convention boon" or "This should be a GM boon," which by omission seems to say "Otherwise, this boon works fairly well with the exception of those issues."

Is that accurate?

That is Accurate. I am not sure about offering to all beyond convention but I do think it should be a GM boon.

Though there is some confusion over the boon that clarification would be nice.

We are aware that the games GMd for the boon are during the time period of one season only, the question is that if you lose those extra replays once the season ends.

For example I have gotten 4 more replays on my boon, I can't add anymore sessions on the boon once Gen Con starts but do I also lose those 4 extra replays?

Dragnmoon, I've found myself wishing I could see the spellings when I only listen to the audiobook.

That is the only problem I have with the audio format, I find I have problems remembering proper nouns/names.

Liberty's Edge ***** ACG and RPG Venture-Lieutanant, Texas—San Antonio aka Dragnmoon

I have always been under the opinion that expanded narrative should be a GM boon not a Player boon. Making it a player boon actually makes it harder to get. Not only that it is not available at every convention.

I think it would work well added to the Race boons, allowing you to choose one or the other.

I have a tendency to by both Audio and Physical copies of books. I was going to cancel my subscription once it changed over to Tor due to losing out on subscription incentives but due to the Audio format I decided to keep it.

If someone was replaying you can change locations.

I am not sure where you got this idea from, though I have seen GMs change things when there is someone at the table who knows a lot about the scenario, that does not mean they were allowed to.

And if you did dig that audiobook, a review on the site would be much appreciated. The line is very young in audio format, so the more good word, the better.

I always do a Review of the Audio books I listen to when they are complete. The Audible App automatically brings you to the review section of the audio book once the book is complete.

Edit: I am hoping that Paizo works out a deal with Tor Books to bring the older books to Audio format.

Edit: By the way I am sad I am not going to see you at Gen Con this year :(. Talking with you at the convention/bars are always enjoyable.

Same answer but different steps.

If the game has been reported I would suggest the following. Look under your player sessions for that game. You will see the GM with a link to their profile. Check to see if they are a regular poster on the boards. If they are send them a PM telling them your concerns. If they are not a regular poster see below.

If the game has not been reported wait until it is.

If they are not a regular poster contact the organizer of the Convention with your concerns since it is unlikely they will reply to a PM.

If the answer is not to your satisfaction then talk to the VC, if the VC is the convention organizer see step above.

You should always try everything you possibly can to talk to the GM first even if it seems like a lot of work instead of going to their "boss" with the possible accusation of "cheating".

Edit: Now accusations of a lot worse of a GM that which are obviously not something you want to talk about with that GM *Sexism, racism, etc.* then go to his boss.

None, since Freeport is a Green Ronin Publishing product. PFS is Paizo only.

Now if you are asking what Freeport products are made using Pathfinder there is the following that I can find:

Peril in Freeport - Cubicle 7 Entertainment
Freeport Companion - Green Ronin Publishing
Dark Deeds in Freeport - Kobold Press
Freeport: The City of Adventure - Green Ronin Publishing
Player's Guide to Freeport - Green Ronin Publishing
Rito della Sucessione - AW Games

The concern is does this violate the PFS rule "run as written" or is this just table variation?

Since Table variation could mean lots of things that I can not be privy to since I or no one here you are asking was there so we can't answer your question.

I have no idea what lead to your GM changing the location, therefore it could be table variation or it could not be.

Your best bet is to ask your GM.

If the GM gives you a reasonable excuse telling you that PC actions lead to the change then it could be table variation, if the GM says she just wanted it to make it more exciting then it is against the "run as written" rule.

Liberty's Edge ***** ACG and RPG Venture-Lieutanant, Texas—San Antonio aka Dragnmoon

Not being there or the reasons behind why it was done I can't answer your questions, but...

If you think the GM made a mistake you should bring it up with him/her first.

If the response is not satisfactory then bring it up with your local organizer.

If it is still not satisfactory then bring it up with your VC. If your VC is your local organizer see above step.

So I decided to keep listening to the Audio book and I am glad I did. Though I am still feeling like I am missing out on some back story, the novel itself is excellent.

Mike you will be missed. I know we butted heads when you first became coordinator but that had nothing to do with your leadership but with what was going on in my life at the time, I was butting heads in general with everyone.

Your leadership of PFS has brought the organization way beyond what it was and opened it to much more for the future.

I would also like to thank you for giving me a chance and allowing me to become a VL despite those initial butting heads ;).

Edit: Will you publically announce your favorite beer once you step down? ;)

This seems to be a regional thing. But even at GenCon I have only been asked once (and, wouldn't you know it, that was for Snowball too).

It is much harder to enforce at conventions. Most of the time at conventions if they use something I don't know I will ask for the book, if they happen not to have it I will look it up on my PDFS. You just don't have time to deal with something like this at a convention.

Do they really get totally screwed if caught? Have you ever witnessed (or even heard of) someone being forced to leave the table (or reported up the chain) for not bringing correct source materials?

We had a player once that did not bring any of the source books, in fact he did not even own any of them. All he had was HeroLabs that his other city he played at allowed him to use. I would not allow it so during the game if anything he used we did not have a source for at the table he was not allow to use it. He still played though I did not kick him off the table.

I am into Chapter three of the Audio book and I already feel like I feel like I am missing something because I have not read the prior books.

The narrator is very good, easy to listen to. But I am now thinking about stopping to listen to it because of the feeling of missing stuff.

Due to a mistake on my end thinking I can use my Hotel points once I got a reservation number from Hilton (I can't, or I can they are not sure) I have a room available to transfer to someone else.

I am re-booked a further away hotel for myself using points and I need to transfer my Hilton reservation made through Gen Con to someone else to avoid a fine. Transferring hotel reservation does not come with a fine so if you are looking for a closer hotel this works.

The hotel is Hilton Garden Inn Indianapolis Downtown which is 5 blocks away from Gen Con. it is from July 29 - August 3 with a final price of $1,146.60. It has 2 Queen beds.

Anyone interested?

Vic is correct! It's a bold new world!

Couple questions James.

What are the chances of getting the older novels on Audible?

I currently own all the books but I find very little time to read so I mostly just listen to audible in my drive back and forth to work. I would love for the older novels to be added to the Audio format as well.

If this is my first book (Since this is the first in audio format) will I feel like I am missing something because I have not read the prior books?

Oddly enough Every Free RPG day I spend enough just by myself to cover the price for the kits at the least at our local store. That said that is not the case every where.

Only 1 year I did not, when we played at a Local store that did not normally carry RPG products, mostly just MtG.

Edit: Sorry for adding to the off topic for the Product thread. How about those Pregens? Any news? Would be useful to know if they are being worked on at the least so the GMs know if they have to get them Photocopied or written up on their own.

Do you have to take Multiweapon Fighting (for reduce penalty) when only attacking with Two Weapons if you have more then 2 arms, or can you still use Two-Weapon Fighting since you are only using two weapons?

It has been pointed out to me that the Special section of Multiweapon Fighting means that you have to take Multiweapon Fighting for the reduce penalty when you have 3+ arms even if you are only attacking with 2 weapons and I am not sure this is correct.

Multiweapon Fighting (Combat) wrote:
