Not even every VC has the welcome boon. I know I don't have it and have had a bunch of new players I'd have liked to have given the boon to. :/
Let's see here...
In a scrapbooking carry case my wife gave me:
- A bunch of blank character sheets/ITS
Occasionally I'll also keep folders of Pregens, but lately I've been keeping them at the store so they can use them when I'm not there.
What I'll do when the VC gives a briefing is direct a lot of my comments to the highest level character. They're the one with the most experience so it feels fitting they are the ones the VC focuses on. Although sometimes after introductions I'll focus on the one who seems most reliable if the highest level seems iffy.
This will also be my first GenCon. I've got a related question. I'll be running tables in the PSA (Pathfinder Society Academy) area all con. Will PSA be on the same room as the main PFS? If a separate room, how far from the main action will we be?
Last year they were in the same room along one side with the card game tables between PSA (Kid's Track at the time) and the rest of the PFS tables.
The last couple of years I've brought cup o' ramen of various flavors and used the coffee pot to heat the water. It's worked quite well and you can get a lot of different types. For Origins, a friend brings a small microwave with him and they use that for meals which I thought was pretty smart and thought about bringing one to Gen Con this year.

There are currently 2 Venture-Lieutenants in Toronto David Creighton and Geoffrey Peart. I believe your closest Venture-Captain is Glen Shackleton in Ottawa.

I believe all VOs are supposed to run two public games every month.
I don't think we've ever had a bigger group that what we've got now. :) Apparently AL did horribly the first year and no one participates in my local area anymore, or if they do, it hasn't hurt our attendance at all. I know I had several players that would play both Encounters and PFS since we ran on different days, but I don't think I lost any to D&D.
I would think as long as you make your own maps and aren't using the ones directly out of the scenarios it'd be ok to share them. If you are using maps copied from the scenarios I think it'd be as much of a no-no as saving them to PFS shared. We can use Paizo's artwork for our own personal use, but we can't share it with others.

At 7th you can take crane riposte which makes the penalty for fighting defensively -1. Obviously using weapon finesse and agile amulet of mighty fist makes it better in combat.
Secrets Stones Keep:
She actually soloed the orc barbarian fight. She was playing up and he never hit her once while she beat on him.
Between being able to trip when someone attacks her and her huge AC, she's pretty tough. One thing that hurts is if she can't attack in a round her AC drops big time. She took to having shurikens just so that if she couldn't get to an enemy in a round she could still throw a shuriken to attack defensively. :) Also went ki throw so she could reposition and trip them.
Had a guy in our local area that if you weren't playing a straight martial he'd give you grief, and would outright backhand insult those that wanted to play monks. After seeing her monk in action, it shut him up. ;)

Flowing Monk with Crane style.
AC 10 +4 (mage armor) +4 (shield) +5 (Dex) +3 (Wis), +1 (insight) +1 (monk) +1 (luck) +2 (natural) +1 (deflection) +16 (dodge (+4 (Ki defense) +3 (flowing dodge (3 enemies adjacent)) +1 (dodge feat) + 4 (fighting defensively (+2 normal, +1 crane style, +1 acrobatics) +4 (in melee with crane wing until missed by 4 or less) = 48
With a -2 to fight defensively. The 2 wands would probably have been PP purchases along with a wand of Barkskin, would have made one of the 5k purchases an amulet of agile instead to add dex to unarmed damage for a +7 to hit and 1d8+5 damage or flurry for +7/+7/+2 1d8+5.
Alternatively, you could also get a couple of pearls of power and ask friendly spell casters if they'd cast some of the spells instead of using the wands so that they'd last longer, but that's more if you have a regular group like we did.
Shield does take a standard action to activate with the ioun stone and with the wand would only last 1 minute and Ki Defense is a swift action and at 6th lvl there's only 6 ki points, so you can't have the 48 AC all the time, but still.
My wife basically took this character from 1st through Eyes of 10. She also tripped and redirected and had a few other fun surprises as well as an insane AC. GM could only hit on a 20.

The last line has been in the guide for years. It seems at odds with the table that says to add +5 to the cost. I once used this to simulate a contingency type raise dead for a PC I killed with the optional encounter that I probably should have skipped.

There are no small/medium/large torches, there's just torches. If you look in the CRB in the equipment table you'll see there isn't a superscript 1 next to torch's weight. That means a halfling is using the same sized torch as a human or hill giant. So yeah, a halfling wielding a torch as an improvised weapon would probably need two hands.
Games for Vets @ Sheridan SpringFest, Memorial Day Weekend
Lester J Sitts Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5065
Kick off the summer with VFW Sheridan as we host our Inaugural Games for Vets mini-con. Most (if not all) Tabletop events will be free. Events are open to all.

As we build our catalog, we also plan to provided donated games to Veterans who are inpatients/residents at hospitals, VA Centers, Grand Rapids Home for Vets and local/regional nursing homes.
PFS will be hosted by Central Michigan Venture-Captain Eric Clingenpeel. Slot schedules are ready for GM sign-up and more can be added if needed.
Out of the Box (Zeeland & Holland) has agreed to sponsor Fantasy Flight Games events; such as, Andriod: Netrunner; Star Wars: X-Wing and Armada; Warhammer 40K: Conquest; A Game of Thrones; and more.
We are going to work with other stores or individuals to sponsor even more tournaments; such as, Hero Clix, Dice Masters, and Magic the Gathering. If you have and recommendations and/or requests, see our Warhorn site for contact information.
The VFW 5065 Auxiliary are the host and coordinator for all SpringFest Events around Sheridan, the kitchen inside VFW 5065 during SpringFest, the SpringFest Queens Pageant and BINGO! On Friday & Sunday evenings.
