The online system is only backup. As long as your character sheet is correct, the Paizo system is moot.

Paizo IT has several things on their plate and I'm sure they'll get to it "soon"

Shadow Lodge ***** Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

IT has a long list of things that need doing (including adding the new factions). Since Emerald Spire was just sanctioned last week, expect it to take a little while before they're able to add it to the system.

The official ACG pregens have not been released as a download yet. They were finished just before Gen Con and Mike and company have been quite busy since with DragonCon and Pax Prime and vacation.

The 4 Pregens in Risen from the Sands are only legal for that module. They are not legal to use in any other PFS scenario.

Yeah, as Xar'z mentions, if you can find one on a chronicle sheet (say a caster level 15 potion of stoneskin...) then you can use it.

Shadow Lodge ***** Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

Congrats both of you and welcome to the team!

I promised to keep the glitter to a minimum (but I won't try hard to keep that promise)

I don't know about other VOs .. .but purple bunny ears are already part of my uniform ... tho we need to have a convo about the green vl shirts .. green clashes with my purple vibe ;)

So the unofficial official announcement .... PurpleBunnyCon in Feb .. .who's in? lol

Hey, purple/green are one of my fav combinations. Or you could always just wear the purple volunteer shirts. Now the orange/purple... ugh, horrible! Just horrible...

Congrats to both of you and welcome to the team Ashton!

I would like to be the first to congratulate our own Purple Fluffy CatBunnyGnome, or henceforth, Thea Peters, in becoming Venture Lieutenant for Murfreesboro, TN. I know this announcement will please those of us who, like myself, found her presence to be an intelligent and moderating presence on the boards. I know that she will do just as much for the Tennessee community as she has for the PFS community at large.

Thanks,

Its about Frakking time! ;D Congrats Thea and welcome to the team!

Yeah, we wondered the same thing and ruled it maxed at normal hand size, but I would like to hear the official ruling.

Doh, yeah... I wasn't thinking, I didn't scroll down. That's what I get for posting before caffine. :)

Ryric, you should have leather armor and a wooden shield in your wizard class deck. Both are armors.

Hey, at least you got the two promos you did, I didn't even get them when I picked up my subscription.

Shadow Lodge ***** Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

Thanks for running Bonekeep Alex. I would have if we didn't find any other players, but I also know some of your 4-stars need to run your specials/exclusives so I was waiting. :)

There will be non-alcoholic beverages available as well, so no they don't have to be 21.

Your "creative solutions", David, are WAY beyond what is allowable for GMs to do in PFS. If you're running it in a homebrew game, fine, but its not ok in PFS.

So they don't know some things about a couple of creatures, so what? They'll figure things out by trail and error just like we used to before having Knowledge checks. I just played in 6-01 and none of us even had K:Engineering, so we had to do it the old fashioned way anyway. Smart PCs/players will figure things out even without the free pass that they get had they had the knowledge for it.

Shadow Lodge ***** Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

Its a type of silent auction, not a sale. Around here we have a similar but different type of silent auction. You buy tickets and then choose how many tickets to put towards each item. Unlike the scenario, in our method the winning ticket is then drawn randomly. So someone could have bid essentially $20 and the winner could have only put in $1 worth of tickets and still win.

Now, I have heard of auctions like the one described in the scenario, but not often, and usually for those than can afford to lose the money if they don't win.

Shadow Lodge ***** Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

The real question is, do you have a race boon for a new character, or have you already played said character. If not the question is moot since tieflings are no longer available to start playing without a boon.

Shadow Lodge ***** Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

Yeah, I have all but my Stonelord credit as well. Just give it a week and then ask if it still isn't updated yet.

Shadow Lodge

Pathfinder Card Game Subscriber

Yeah, and the player has no idea (as of Sunday afternoon) just what he's doing with it. He's played at my table many times and I can't wait to run a game for his android. :)

Shadow Lodge ***** Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

Also realize that GenCon just got over. Its quite possible that the GM went to the con. I know I was without internet for pretty much six days, or without email at least.

Shadow Lodge ***** Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

Well, I'll be leaving here in about an hour. I'll see you guys around noon. :)

Shadow Lodge ***** Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

There's a pdf reader program called Nitro Reader, its a free download. It has an option of extracting all images from a pdf. It does a really nice job. gives them a white background, not that messy black one you usually get from copy/paste out of Acrobat.

I've used Parkwhiz.com for parking the last two years. Last year I did a month or so before GC so got a parking lot about 8 or so blocks away from the hotel. From Wed to Monday it was I think $70, but it was park and stay, no in-and-out. This year I'm about four blocks from the hotel in a covered garage from 6am Wed until 6pm Monday $55. Of course I got my parking in January... But for six days I'm paying what a lot of people are paying for 2 days or so. Plus its like half a block from Scotty's. :)

Oh look, I bought two tickets for that seminar months ago... ;D Can't wait. :)

Terrain and maps are packed. I've got some last minute prep for Friday's special yet to do. Wife is finishing up putting together my pawns (while reading Emerald Spire that she's offered to try running for our home group :D). And I'm thinking hard about if I've forgotten to pack anything.

Shadow Lodge ***** Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

If you read the room descriptions, there's a trapdoor under the NW table in the kitchen. I missed it for a while too.

Shadow Lodge ***** Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

Just an FYI, the 1-2 stat blocks for Stonelords was not the final version. She used the playtest, so they are not complete

Well, there is one table that seats 14, I think, and I'm putting 2 6 person games there. The booths I am only seating 4 players plus a GM. We have some tables that are pushed together, so I am putting 6 at those - those might be a tad snug, but not like trying to put 6 in a booth, I don't think.

Well, two years ago I played a six player game in one of the booths... It was... cozy, especially since the hotel wouldn't let us check out bags so the GM and I had all of our crap with us. Ugh. ;) Actually it was with the same character I'm playing this year too.

Shadow Lodge ***** Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

If you have it in your downloads, you'll get an email saying its been updated.

Shadow Lodge ***** Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

I'm looking forward to:
- playing my first game at GenCon. I've run about 14 games, but I have yet to play one.
- playing with Thod, his son, and a slew of VOs at the Blakros Museum. I love that place! ;D
- meeting people from the forums for the first time as well as those I've met in the past. It's always fun to put faces to names.
- Scotty's precon games. I get to play with my first goblin (that was Garble you signed up with, right Kyle)
- playing at my first all 5-star GMs as players table. Should be... interesting...
- showing off the terrain I've done for my games. :)

I'm certain that the guide Mike's hoping to release on Monday will be the final one. It's entirely possible they'll make updates after GenCon if there's something really off, but I know they won't release another guide between Monday and Thursday.

#6–03: The Technic Siege and #6–00: Legacy of the Stonelords are both nearing completion and should be showing up in peoples' downloads soon after that (either Friday evening or early Saturday morning is my understanding).

** spoiler omitted **

Oh sure! You post this just after my wife finished cutting out and taping the maps together. I ain't telling her! Thankfully she doesn't read the forums much. ;D

Shadow Lodge ***** Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

Wow, congratulations! That is an amazing accomplishment. Well done. :)

Shadow Lodge ***** Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

Congrats Tonya! Well deserved! :)

Shadow Lodge ***** Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

Hmm... Most of the scenarios that have the "fun" are ones with little combat:
Library of the Lion
The Disappeared
Scars of the Third Crusade

I know you said no multi-part scenarios, but part 3 of the Quest for Perfection is a lot of fun and definitely a different scenario. Way of the Kirin is similar and not a 3 parter, though it is a 3-7.

Confirmation definitely qualifies.

Delirium's Tangle might work well too.

What I did with our nook is made a book shelf for each book and named it as the book.

Forgive my ignorance, but where/when will the volunteers meeting take place next Wednesday? And if we can't make that meeting, am I correct in assuming we just grab out GM badges at Paizo HQ the following morning? Thanks ahead!

As Jon said, you can pick up your stuff between 3 & 5 Wed. There is no GM/volunteer meeting this year.

Shadow Lodge ***** Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

You have to actually play him at first level as a tiefling, or give a 1-5 tier GM credit to him. Currently you can't give GM credit for a higher tier game to a 1st level character.

Shadow Lodge ***** Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

Correct. It has to actually have XP in order to be grandfathered.

First off, welcome to the Pathfinder Society!

Well, since you already had a number I'd suggest either contacting the GM with your actual number and ask him to change the information in the report. Since you've only played one game that'd be the easiest thing. Had you played more that a few you could have the Campaign Coordinator, Mike Brock combine numbers. If you can't get a hold of the GM, message me here on Paizo and I should be able to get it fixed for you with a little information from you. (I'm the Venture-Captain for the Mid-Michigan area.)

Its the GMs responsibility to report scenarios, you don't need to do anything. You can enter as little or as much information into your profile as you want, but it really only matters if you're playing the character in a Play-by-Post game here on Paizo.com. When the GM enters your correct PFS# into the session, it will appear in your profile/character's sessions tab. Its important to make sure you bring your PFS# with you if you don't memorize it. I usually write it down at the top of my character sheet so I can remember which character is which (I have 17 currently).

If you have any other questions, feel free to ask them in the Pathfinder Society General Discussion further up the messageboard. If its PFS specific you'll get a better chance of someone who knows what you're talking about seeing it.

Oh no! I hope you get your luggage soon, Thod.

Its usually quite close to being the right challenge. Since we've been using that rule, I haven't seen any group really struggle by playing up for 4.

Shadow Lodge ***** Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

I think that many use judge because as a campaign there is only one GM and that's Mike Brock.

I personally use GM, since PFS is my first OP campaign. I figure if it's good enough that the Guide to OP calls us GMs, it's good enough for me.

Shadow Lodge ***** Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

Awesome John, thanks a bunch. :D

Shadow Lodge ***** Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the email link in the footer.

Shadow Lodge ***** Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

I think you'd be better off trying to track down the GM by his number...

Shadow Lodge ***** Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

We're split up between them. I'd have thought that Mike would have sent out the confirmations by now. Seems like we got them earlier last year.

It seems like last year they updated it saying the new stuff would be legal on X date, but I might be remembering wrong.

MaartenDF, welcome. About 3-4 years ago my homegroup switched to PFS as our format for our core games. At that time none of us had ever gone to a convention and had no real intention of going to one. Because PFS had the paperwork, and allowed for taking our characters "on the road" I went to my first Con a few months after we started, since we had some friends that lived in a city that had the con. We were all geeks and I thought it might be fun to try out, and a 5-star GM Doug Miles was running an exclusive scenario that only he could run in Michigan and I wanted to play it. Ever since I was hooked.

I had no intention of ever playing anywhere but with my homegroups, but since then I've gone to 3-4 conventions a year and my friends and I are even working to start our own convention (Tavern Con). I've spread out and run at several stores regularly as well as kept our original homegroup running PFS and switched a family group I ran for to PFS as well. I love being able to experience an entire adventure in one sitting and know that I could go about anywhere in the world and be able to fine a PFS game and play with my own characters.

It is a bit more paperwork than a normal homegame, yes, but after a while you stop noticing, at least I have.
