We are currently seeking Players for Tavern Con 2016.
Tavern Con is a two day Pathfinder Society Event packed full with 26 hours of scheduled game play. This year we're located in a banquet room of a bowling alley and like years past alcohol will be allowed at the table. With a selection of recent content and a hand picked plethora of Aspis Consortium themed scenarios, this convention will satiate the thirst of even the most ravenous adventurer.
So join us this Fall to raise a glass, roll some dice and cry havoc!
A fee of $3 will be assessed for players each slot the day of the event. GM's play free and gain our enthusiastic gratitude.
All sign-ups are being handled through Warhorn.

I guess I read it wrong when I was running it for my table. I read it as three checks and if they failed by enough they ran into a trap, not that they needed to succeed three times. They only had like +7 after aids for survival so there was no possible way they were making the check. I had them run into the traps three times and progressed to the next area.
My day seemed to be all about being late... I started 30 minutes later than I planned and construction slowed things down so we ended up several hours later than I had planned on arriving. But I got to finally meet TOZ as a surprise he and his wife are our roommates. He's one of the many posters I've wanted to meet someday so it's a treat.
The VC dinner was fantastic as usual. Heard some great news like 《redacted》and 《redacted》and how the end of the season will be 《redacted》. But I probably shouldn't post much more about that... ;)
I'm excited that my wife got to volunteer again this year. It's been a fee years since she came to gencon and it's nice to have her here. She'll be helping GM the new Pathfinder Society Academy and seems very excited about it.
I should be hitting the hay since I run first slot. I'll try to post more later.

It's been there since at least season 4, which is when a player pointed it out to me, though I've never seen it used since you rarely talk to an NPC member of your faction that you have to Diplomacize.

Here's my Harley. Her schtick is to charge things with her big hammer (earthbreaker) and do tons of non-lethal damage (through sneak attack) and then intimidate them. With Charging Stag Style she can charge through difficult terrain and allies as well as make a turn during the charge. She has a magic "purse" that she keeps whatever she finds somewhat handy, but most of it is just good for a laugh.
I played her the first time last year at level 8 with the VOs at GC, but since then I've leveled her with my family group as we are slowly making our way to face Krune.

A group of VOs actually ran a Suicide Squad group through Siege of Serpents at Gen Con last year. I played Harley Quinn, and I'd like to think I did a good job at playing her personality and cooperating with the others. If you'd like, Josh, I'll post my build here later. She's a blast to play and I'm playing her through the Season 4 Lissala cult arc.

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.

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.
