Let me know if there happen to be any questions!
Working this weekend, unfortunately! Good luck with the 'Con though.
In regards to scheduling for the upcoming sessions at the Griffon, I will need some feedback from some of our higher level players. I need to pick a weekend for the 'Waking Rune,' but it needs to be one where we have enough people to play it. Your options are: A) November 16th or B) November 30th (This is the weekend after Thanksgiving). Please let me know which would work better, as I will be arranging for a GM to run it so that I can play it with y'all. Thanks!
Hey all! A little late posting for this upcoming weekend. Due to some people unable to make it this weekend, 'The Waking Rune' will be postponed to another weekend. I also need a GM for the lower table as well. Here's the plan:
High Table: The Fabric of Reality (Tier 5-9)
Low Table: The Disappeared (Tier 1-5, role-play heavy scenario)
Please please let me know if you would be willing to give GM'ing a table a try! Let me know before Friday and I will send a copy of the scenario to you for perusal. My previous offer/bribe of Main Street pastry and drink still stands to anyone who wants to GM!
Schedule for this upcoming weekend...
Saturday, October 19th @ 10AM at the Griffon:
High Table: Words of the Ancients (Tier 7-11)
Low Table: Beyond the Dawn Part 2, Rescue at Azlant Ridge (Tier 1-7)
I need a volunteer to GM for the low tier table!!! I will bribe with a free pastry and drink of your choice from the illustrious Main Street Coffee House that day for the person who volunteers to GM. Please let me know by Friday at the latest so I can send the scenario out for perusal. Thanks!
Sorry for the late update, here is the tentative schedule for this upcoming weekend at the Griffon:
High Table: The Refuge of Time (Tier 7-11), GM Irish202
Low Table: Before the Dawn Part 2: Rescue at Azlant Ridge (Tier 1-7).
I currently do not have a GM set up to run the low table. Any volunteers would be appreciated, and I can provide the scenario (and print out any chronicles/missions/etc. if needed). Let me know if you can GM! Thanks!
Due to level ranges not working last session, the high table played another scenario instead of the next Lissala one. As such, here is the schedule for this coming weekend:
September 21st, Griffon Bookstore, 10AM-2PM
High Table: Feast of Sigils (Tier 7-11)
Low Table: Severed Ties (or if people have played that already, 'The Disappeared') (Tier 1-5)
Let me know if there are any questions!
I have a question regarding calculating out-of-tier GP with scenarios that have 3 sub-tiers (i.e. Tier 1-7 scenarios).
Specifically, here is the situation:
-Ran #2-01 Before the Dawn Part 1 with an odd level distribution of PC's (1,1,1,5,7,7). Their APL put them at 3.6, which is in Tier 3-4.
Tier Rewards Spoiler:
-Tier rewards were 506 for 1-2, 1262 for 3-4, and 3234 for 6-7.
-If what I read earlier is correct that the OoT rewards is the average of the high and low subtier rewards. In this case, would that be the average between 1-2 and 6-7? If that is true, the OoT reward would be HIGHER than the tier 3-4 rewards (@ 1870 gp), which would be odd for the level 1 characters. Or would it be relative to the PC (i.e. for a level 1 it would be average between Tier 1-2 and 3-4, then between 3-4 and 6-7 for the level 7 pcs)?
I think it is 10, maybe? It is definitely listed in the Society Guide, I believe.
Also, next session is 8/24/13 @ 10AM at the Griffon. There was rumongering after this past session about a desire to run higher tier scenarios for some of the players with higher level characters. If there is such interest, I would like to run the 'Cult of Lissala' arc of Season 4; ending with the season Finale 'The Waking Rune.' If this appears to be desirable, the first scenario I would be running is 'The Cultist's Kiss,' which is tier 7-11. Level 7 pre-gens will be available to those who can't play in tier.
In the event that another table is needed, I would ask someone to volunteer to run a level 1-5 table. Scenario would be 'Shades of Ice Part 2: Exiles of Winter,' which I can provide to the GM. I can also bribe with baked goods if needed. Let me know of any comments, questions or concerns!
The schedule for the next session (August 10th, 10AM @ the Griffon) is as follows:
Slot 1: Rivalry's End (Tier 3-7, Shadow Lodge Retirement Scenario)
Slot 2: Shades of Ice, Part 1: Written In Blood
I believe Erica has offered to GM for this session, and I am looking for one other individual to volunteer as well. I am not 100% if I will be available (and if I am, I have run both of these and would prefer to play in Shades of Ice instead), so if another person would be willing to step up I would appreciate it. I can provide both scenarios to the GM's. Please be sure to sign up on the Warhorn site under the scenario you wish to play or GM. Let me know if there are any questions!
Hey all! There is now a Warhorn site for signups for PFS sessions in Northern Indiana (namely South Bend, Elkhart, Valparaiso currently). The url is located here. Hopefully this will help a smidge when it comes to determine who is playing at what tables prior to the session itself. Session information will continue to be posted here, but sign-ups on the Warhorn will make the GM's lives a little bit easier. Let me know if there are any questions!
Thanks for everyone who played today! Unfortunately, I seem to have misplaced the reporting sheet for the Night March table...so if the people/GM playing at that table wouldn't mind messaging me your ID and faction that would be great! (Sorry!)
Next session coming up is Saturday June 29th, 10AM at the Griffon. Here is what the schedule is currently looking like:
Table 1: Shadow's Last Stand Part 2: Web of Corruption
Table 2: TBD (Thinking Tide of Twilight, if people are amenable)
Let me know if there are any questions!
Got a couple options this time. Which would seem more interesting to play:
Option 1: Play a PFS-Sanctioned Module. This would entail something along the lines of Crypt of the Everflame (Levels 1-2) or Masks of the Living God (Levels 2-4). It would take ~2 sessions to fully make your way through it, but you would get 3 XP/4 PA for completing.
Option 2: Play a Scenario. If there is more interest in this, I will plan on running the "Shadow's Last Stand" scenario series in preparation for the Shadow Lodge retirement coming up in July.
Let me know what y'all think!
For some reason, 'Way of the Kirin' has not been posted to the Paizo website. I will be checking tomorrow and Saturday periodically to see if it comes up, but in the event that it does not the replacement scenario I will be running is 'Among the Dead' (the follow-up scenario to 'Among the Living'). Let me know if this is an concern.
Next session coming up will be June 1st, 10AM at the Griffon!
Here is the schedule for that weekend:
Table 1: #4-21: The Way of the Kirin (Tier 3-7)
Back-Up Table: #4-18: The Veteran's Vault (Tier 1-5)
Let me know if there are any questions!
Hello everyone, sorry about the late posting (work has been hectic lately). Anyways, the next session should be this upcoming weekend (April 20th, 10AM), as far as I know of (haven't confirmed with the store owner, though I think he has caught onto the schedule).
Due to a series of unfortunately-timed-commitments, I have no 'free' weekends until June, and hence I cannot attend the upcoming 3 sessions (April 20th, May 4th, and May 18th) and will be unavailable for GM'ing scenarios. I am open to ideas at this point in terms of how you all would like to handle choosing/running sessions for those dates. One idea that I had would be for someone to run one of the modules (i.e. Crypt of the Everflame, Masks of the Living God, etc.), which would take ~ 2 sessions to complete. Other than that, I am open to suggestions. I can provide scenarios/modules to GM's if they are needed.
Hope everyone enjoyed the session this past weekend! I certainly did, or at the very least for giving you all an amusingly (for me) difficult boss fight. Muhaha.
Anyways, the next session is scheduled for March 2nd @ 10AM at the Griffon. The scenarios on the table are tentatively as follows, barring any objections:
Slot 1: #5: Mists of Mwangi
Slot 2: #39: Citadel of Flame
Just going to leave it at two slots, as I am mildly lazy and I don't expect that there will be 3 tables worth again for a while. Let me know if there are any comments/questions!
I will also be there GM'ing as well! Let me know if any assistance is needed in terms of carpooling or other things (I'll be staying all weekend at the Clarion, if that affects anything). Along this vein of topic, if you are planning on going, they have opened the sign-ups for PFS scenarios on the Whos' Yer Con Warhorn site, in case you wish to peruse the selection for the weekend.
In other news, the next PFS session up here in S.B. will be February 16th @ 10AM at the Griffon. I spoke with the store owner, and I have reserved the large room we were in last time. A head-count of people wishing to attend (as well as expect level of character that is intended to play) would be helpful for me in managing the chaos and shenanigans. FYI: THIS SESSION IS THE SAME DAY AS ARCTICON IN VALPO. I will still be running the session for those who can't/are not attending the Con that weekend. If someone could volunteer to prep a scenario for a second table, I would be a very happy event organizer. In fact, having someone else volunteer to back-up GM would be even better. I can provide all scenario PDFs to GM's for the session, as well.
Tentative Schedule for the next session (2/16/13):
Slot 1: 'The Dalsine Affair' (Tier 1-7)
Slot 2: Any Tier 1-5 scenario the GM wants to run
Back-up: First Steps Part 1: In Service to Lore
......Ok. Brian, it would be awesome if you could GM. However, there are probably only 2-3 people who actually have characters within the tier for Echoes. Would you mind running a 1-5 or 1-7? I propose the following, with the back-up table as last resort for 13+ people (which I don't expect):
Table 1: God's Market Gamble (GM: Irish202, Tier 1-5)
Table 2: Something. (GM: Brian, Tier ??)
Back-up: Masters of the Fallen Fortress (GM: Rastaf, Tier 1)
Ok, now that is appears a significant number of people are coming, I am clarifying the number of players below to maintain my sanity:
1. Justin's group (3 people)
Based on this incredibly loose reckoning, this would be approximately 12 people, which equals two very full tables!
In the event this number increases, I may need someone to have one of the 'First Steps' scenarios prepped just in case (who is not Justin). Tom, would you be willing? I don't expect it, but I like to have my bases covered.
Next session will be February 2nd at 10AM at the Griffon. I will be running "#3-18: The God's Market Gamble," and the back-up scenario will once again be "Masters of the Fallen Fortress." If someone other than Justin could volunteer to back-up GM in case we get 7+ people, that would be appreciated (as he has GM'd essentially the last couple sessions to finish up the Quest for Perfection series).
Hey all! Justin had something come up last minute, so I will be GM'ing his table tomorrow. I will be changing the scenario as well, so that everyone who started Part 1 can be present for the remainder of the series. The current scenario is now "#3-21: The Temple of Empyreal Enlightenment." Back-up table will still be "Masters of the Fallen Fortress." See y'all tomorrow!
Justin-I am perfectly OK with GM'ing the next session, I just play PFS up in K-Zoo on Saturday evenings for things I want credit for :)
Gykrossin-The upcoming session will be two weeks from now, on December 29th @ 10AM. The PFS sessions take place at the Griffon Bookstore (location and info about it located hence: http://griffon-bookstore.com/ ) on the second floor of the building.
Justin- Thanks! Do you want to continue GM'ing the rest of the 'Quest for Perfection' series or switch back to playing? I have both played/GM'd the series, but it is fun enough that I wouldn't mind doing either again for no credit. If you decide to GM, I would happy to sit as a back-up GM in case of 7+ turnout on the 29th.
Rastaf- Heh, fair enough!
Gykrossin- I agree with Justin, it is always good to have new faces at the sessions!
Hey everyone! I heard from Justin that everyone survived yesterday's session, hope y'all enjoyed it!
Next session will be December 29th @ 10AM at the Griffon again, if the time fits with everyone's holiday schedules. My question for all of you: which type of scenario would you like to play next? I have been bouncing y'all around very different settings to get a feel for what kind of PFS missions are preferred. Would you all like to for the next session to:
A) Do another Tian Xia-based mission (A la 'Edge of Heaven') and/or continue the 'Quest for Perfection' series?
B) Do another Absalom-based mission (A la 'Silent Tide')?
C) Do another Irrisen/Land of the Linnorm Kings-based mission (A la 'Frostfur Captives')?
D) Try a mission set in a completely different place than those listed above? Your options are Andoran, Cheliax, Taldor, Mwangi, Varisia, or Random.
In case there happens to be a 7+ people turnout, would anyone be willing to back-up GM on the 1st? I don't expect it, but it is good to be prepared just in case. The scenario would be "Master of the Fallen Fortress," which I can either provide or can be downloaded for free (I think) off of the paizo website.
I can handle reporting, I already have the event set up and everything :)
All I need are the Pathfinder Society numbers/factions of all the players/GM at the session, and I'll take care of the rest. The event number (which you will need to write at the bottom-left corner of the chronicle sheets) is "17042." Let me know if you have any questions about filling out the chronicle sheets.
Hey everyone! Had lots of fun with the session today. Next session will be November 3rd at 10AM (Griffon, as usual). The scenario on deck will be #3: Murder on the Silken Caravan. Hope see you there!
For those interested in continuing to play in future sessions, please think about sending me your background for you character! I'm thinking about trying to do something new with the way I'm RP'ing the scenarios, and backgrounds will help me out a lot. Can be as short/long as you'd like, just send it to me in a PM and I'll give it a look over. Thanks!
Thanks! I have started a thread on that section of the Michiana forum. I have carried the 'definite' RSVP's across to that sign-up. Additionally, would someone be interested in back-up GM'ing a scenario if too many people show up? I was thinking 'We Be Goblins' as a good one to do, and I can provide a copy of scenario if needed.
