Thank you all for everything! I'm very excited about the PFS. I've organized a little official event with 25 players and 5 master, but i've never played a Pathfinder Society scenario. In Italy there aren't public Pathfinder Society Events because few people speak english (yes i know, this is embarassing). So i've decide to organize an official event, i've translated this scenario, found the masters and players (I think that at least a quarter of them will'be beginner). After the event i'll post a report with photos and opinions.

Whatever happens, I know we will have a lot of fun!!

This is amazing.

Buona fortuna!

Your best bet is to print the scenarios and only use your tablet to reference things.

If you're at my table, we'll see.

Then again, if your definition of "unkillable" includes using PP to bring him back, you're probably right.

You vastly over-estimate a goblin's ability to earn prestige and not spend it on things like porters, heralds, titles, land, etc.

If I remember correctly Joe Caubo's character died in the first 15 minutes of the first encounter and they didn't complete a second encounter.
Eh, He died 15 minutes into the special. We then completed 5 or 6 encounters in Act 2. We easily handled the first encounter of Act 3, then fought a position game with the BBEG of Tier 14-15. I don't think Baird was ever going to let us catch it.
Ah, ok, so it wasn't "didn't complete a second encounter", but "didn't complete the third act" instead. That sounds less bad. Well at least I was correct about Caubo's character death! :-)

I was at Winter War last year during the same weekend, but I heard from some of the PFS GMs that there were issues with the way the convention staff treated them. If you look at the convention thread on these forums, there wasn't much of a response.

Sometimes conventions over promise the number of slots they can offer w/o having a good base for support from GMs or a champion to attract that support. On the plus side, Mortika's there this year, and that's a guaranteed fun time.

I kind of miss having a better opportunity to fail faction missions with Garble. Poor little guy was getting about 1.1 PP per game til Seaon 5. "Goblin, go draw me a picture of this house in town." *returns with a picture of a burning house and dead people and dogs that looks like a 5 year old drew* "WHAT IS THIS?" GM: "uh... Roll a Knowl..." Me: "No."

GMing a lot of games at Gen Con has one major drawback. It makes your throat sore which makes it more difficult to drink heavily.

Like literally, there would be a psionic villain and he would just explode your head. First fight. Wait, scratch that. The combat would happen during the venture briefing.

Amateur. A quality scenario will TPK during the scenario blurb.

Pathfinder made huge steps to eliminate blanket immunities for PCs. SoS CSIS Resonance power was a mistake. At the very least, make it like mind blank and give it a +10, but to be more in-line with the rest of the resonance powers, it should be a +2 or +4 vs. those effects and not reference PfE.

FWIW Avatar, I almost always pass out a handout with the VC's name, picture, a blurb about them and on the back is the entire opening "wall of text" with important sentences/words bolded.

Saves a ton of time for everyone involved (and voices at large conventions).
