I found the class total thread interesting and I noticed some one list their races as well. I was curious to see how diverse the Society is so here is my list of played races.
Edit: These are the number of characters I have of the listed race not a list of levels played.
As you circle the mountain of bronze in the center of the room you come across a scholarly woman of eleven decent. She is dressed in warm clothing and holds a scroll in each hand. "So you're the ones making all that noise, I'm afraid I cannot let you go any further" With a flick of both wrists the scrolls instantly become a sword and shield.
Avarus: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (11) + 4 = 15
Dario: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (2) + 5 = 7
Xerance: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (3) + 4 = 7
Zanakor: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (16) + 2 = 18
Skaarr: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (20) + 3 = 23
Aspis: 1d20 ⇒ 15
Bold is up.
Can you tell us anything about the characters/classes they have for S&S or are they only giving you the Rise of the Runelords characters.
The Gods Mouth Heresy I am running is electing to continue exploring their dungeon and will not be finished in time to count toward the game day. The Accursed Halls I have stepped up to run after the GM disappeared is also not going to finish in time. I will report these separately and consider if I will take part in the next event.

Huh so you really are there to just play cards, a lot of cards. You writing a guide or something?
I have had a player like this at my table a few times and it may very well be the same player. What a lot of people are suggesting is walking the line of what is breaking the rules and rewarding creative solutions. Compromise is a big part of that and the player should be more responsive to toning it down compared to being told no. As Jiggy pointed out any mechanical benefits need the rules to be presented by the player. If they cannot do so then they cannot do it. Just remember in the end you want all the players to have fun.

In February/March 2015 the next Exclusive should come out. Ambitious GMs will schedule sessions in advance of the scenario being released. Offer to slot zero it for your VOs and local workhorse GMs. Getting those 10 Exclusives/Specials has become more difficult as the number of regional 4-Star GMs & VOs increase. You guys have my sympathies. Back in 2011 I ran 2-EX The Midnight Mauler 14 times in a two month span. A lack of competition in the marketplace helped. Keep an eye out early next year for the new Exclusive and run the hell out of it, fellas.
Not only do we have more competition but we also have the issue that it's been in convention play for a year before release as an EX which further reduces the player pool. Then add the fact that it isn't PbP compatible which takes out another chunk of possible players. It's a square peg forced into a round hole to say the least. Hoping to be done with my 5th star before the next EX which is probably going to be Bonekeep 2.
Edit: Thanks for the comments acknowledge things are different now Doug Doug.
I think what Cire is getting at is there is no need to test post. If the glitch is fixed you would simple have to check your My Account page instead of posting to see your stars.
This is a regular round the only surprise round was the Aspis firing at Dario. I also moved Xerance into a position she can fire from.
Xerance draws her bow and fires at the Aspis man but only hits the wall he is ducking behind. The Aspis continues winding his crossbow this round.
Names in bold are up.
Any faction-specific vanities, titles, traits, prestige items, or other purchases made while the character was a member of the retired faction are retained by that character with no changes. After the faction is retired, none of these faction-specific items are available for future purchase.
This refers to the shadow lodge and the lantern lodge which were retired last year. They have no plans that I am aware of to remove any additional factions so you need not worry.
Brian lets work on making the alias for your character first. Go up to the very top of the page and click the My Account link. That should take you to a log in screen. After that it should have you on your account screen. On the left is a box labeled Alias, click the button that says create new alias. This should bring you to a screen that will let you type in the name of your character and select a stock image for your character (there may be a way for a custom image but I do not know how yet). Once you have the name and image selected hit save changes. Then come back here and post something and use the "post as" drop down at the bottom left to select to post as your new alias. Once I see you have done that we will work on the profile.
If you think a single PbP might not be enough keep this in mind. While a single character my be locked in a PbP there is nothing against the rules for PFS to play in several PbP games with different characters or even play in a few games and GM one or two. Just as long as it's not to much for you personally and you stick to one game per character you're within the rules. Though I recommend just one to start out with just to try it out.
As far as PFS games go most of the recriutments include PFS in the thread title. There are not as many starting up at the moment due to a convention style event going on. A little advise if you plan to do PbP and F2F PFS. Your character gets locked once it starts a PbP, which means you can not play it in another PFS game until that PbP is over. Good luck and have fun.
There is so much good stuff I haven't worked out my play schedule yet. Here is my GMing schedule though.
Saturday 7pm-11pm Bonekeep level 2
Sunday 9am-1pm Bonekeep level 1
Monday 9Am-1pm Siege of the Diamond City
I will also be spending some time at the front desk if you wanted to stop by and say hi. Remeber if you GM 3 tables you get in for free!
I think everyone is glad to see you back and willing to join us again. This kind of scenario is not very common in PFS so I thought it might be neat to see a different side of the game. Unfortunatly it was not a great fit for you which is mostly my fault. The next one is pretty much a classic dungeon crawl and will be much longer then a regular scenario. If you were thinking about getting a shield you have access to a rather cool one down the line now.
Ok now that I have some free time I can maybe give some helpful feed back for Adelaide.
PFS: It is not always the best fit for everyone, it can be rather ridged in rules compared to home games but more flexible on how and where you play. One of the strengths of PFS is being able to take your characters on the road and sit down and play with other people. Be that at a weekly local game another PbP or convention. As far as building relationships with NPC's and over all story you have to dig deeper into PFS to really start to see that. Unlike an AP that focuses on a few key events in a specific area PFS sends you all over the world for different reasons. As far as time to interact with your fellow adventurers I usually let that play out as much as everyone is into it. This adventure being the exception as the party is up against a clock.
As far as Adelaide being useless I don't see it. You don't always have to be the best at something to help or succeed at something, especially when it relies on a dice roll. The Paladin thing I get and it can feel confining, and they do struggle at lower levels. Though the warm, kind and sweet personality will always make you friends (probably has a lot to do with why everyone wants to keep you around and playing). If you'd like to keep the deity worshiping spell caster type that gets more skills you might look at the Inquisitor like Vincent. They have a lot more flexibility and resourcefulness.
You don't always have to have a schtik and some characters do better face to face and the rebuild was added to PFS for a reason. I'm just going to post a few things from a friends post that you might find helpful. Just sitting at the table with him a few times made me a better player and everytime I read his stuff again I'm learning or relearning stuff.
Embrace the depth of your backstory even if no one else will read it: In F2F, it can be hard and time consuming to explain how one's childhood and upbringing lead to the creation of the character before you. In PbP, you can explore those experiences and expound on them, drawing upon them when needed. Some of your players will read it, some won't...but that's neither here nor there. What matters is how much background and color you want to add. Stick your long history in spoiler or on your alias.
Barham loads his crossbow while Scrumpy snaps and claws wildly at the books in vain. The swirling books then shift over and swirl around poor Scrumpy as well causing many deep painful paper cuts.
Taalaako: 1d6 ⇒ 1
Scrumpy: 1d6 ⇒ 3
Bold is up also Barham you would know they are weak vs fire. Need to fix your hp as well.
