How dissapointing...Oh well I guess I will just have to suffer in Coronado.

my advice, hang out in the Gaslamp district, so many places there will be having comic-con-related events and stuff, and it's just a fun place, period. Great bars, great food, great nightlife

OP, the Grapple charts R2D2TS linked to above are a big help. I would definitely suggest printing them out and bringing them with you.

Also, I would suggest making sure you have your character's stats available with the Grappled condition applied to them.

Having a 3x5" card with the Grappled Condition information on it is good too, so the GM can be reminded of what they have to apply to creatures your Tetori is currently grappling.

My very first PFS experience as a GM was last April, and yes, it was running a scenario 'cold'.

I had been gearing up and reading up on GMing, and was scheduled to GM my first PFS game the next month. I showed up to play that day in April, however...and the GM for one of the three tables didn't show, canceling shortly before muster due to an emergency. Six players were left without a game and they already were all at the LGS, left with nothing to do. So...I stepped up, left my #6 spot as a player at one of the other tables and just did what I could.

I quickly got online and bought 'Rise of the Goblin Guild'. I skimmed through it as fast as I could on my iPad while another GM lent me a spare grid mat and some extra random minis. Luckily, the LGS had a printer in the back, so I was able to fire off some chronicle sheets, faction missions, sign-in, etc.

All the players knew I was stepping up and thanked me for doing so. Still, I apologized in advance for what was not only going to be a pretty rough 'cold' run...but that also it would be my first GMing session ever.

We got through it. We had fun. Looking back, I did a million things wrong that were absolutely NOT pfs legal and in some cases, not even within the pathfinder rules, but the table was full of laughter, excitement, jokes and great roleplay. The PCs triumphed in the end and, sweaty, exhausted and covered in wet-erase marker I stood proud, having survived my first session.

That being said...I wouldn't do this again except under the most extreme circumstances, like a last-second GM cancellation. Even then, I would probably only do it for folks I know through the PFS community, who can understand the circumstances.

Four months later, with a lot more experience again, I prepped 'Rise of the Goblin Guild' and GM'd it again for zero credit, just to sort of exorcise the demons of all the 'cold' things I got wrong in that very first session. It definitely felt good, and really reinforced even more the difference for me, in running 'cold' versus giving your players a prepped, researched and studied gaming session.

That being said...in these situations, I WILL step up. I will not send players home with no game. I'll do my best, I'll put smiles on their faces, and I'll make it worth their time. It won't be THE best...but damn, I'm gonna give it my best rather than send them home.

If you play your character with that voice at the table, eventually the other players are going to toss you out for the 4,923,845,853 times you unintentionally spit on them during the session

I guess the best part of this is that I do not have to talk to players anymore who want to explain to me for ten minutes straight why fox people should be allowed and how many tails their fox person would have if they were allowed to play a fox person

so
win/win

they get their fox person and I do not have to listen to why they think they should have their fox person

I had run out of boons awhile ago to give out in order to quiet pro-foxers down, so this is timely

man I want to either get angry or excited about this
but since my PFS characters are Human, Human, Human, Human, Human, Human, Human, Human, Human and Tiefling then maybe this is just is not for me and I am okay with that

Have you tried PbP?
Have you tried a virtual game via skype or other such setup?
What about an immersive MMO?

Also, have you thought about GMing WITH your son? Maybe setting something up you both can put together and provide input on, sort of passing the torch?

What about writing? Maybe starting a blog, putting out some of your accrued knowledge and/or opinions on the hobby, reviews, discussions, etc?

Yep, the opposite for me, too. I own the Core (which fell apart in less than a year), the APG, UM and UC as actual books. Everything else that I have is PDFs.

I love the savings. I love the convenience of easy transport, since I play both home games and PFS in many different locations. I have no problem reading them on an iPad or on my PC. Also, my wife plays just as frequently as I do, so sharing our purchased PDFs via Google Drive with each other allows us both to easily peruse our owned materials at the same time.

There's something really nice about the actual book in my hands and I most certainly grew up as a voracious reader, but for me, that feeling just doesn't outweigh the savings and convenience I get from PDFs on an iPad.

Hey OP, just do it.
If you have a rad miniature, use it. I'd rather have someone use a cool mini that isn't exactly in line with their character than a lot of other alternatives.

If anything, you don't have to completely parrot everything on your miniature in terms of the description of your character. My wife and I usually put a lot of time into our character miniatures with custom conversions and nice paint jobs. That being said, even with all that work, our miniatures are rarely 100% accurate to the vision we have for our characters.

People use dice as their minis.
People use plastic markers and coins.
I play with some peeps who use lego guys/gals as their minis. That doesn't mean their characters have square bodies, can't twist at the waist and have gigantic yellow cylinder heads.

Math teachers are in high demand, what can I say?
Yes..Scint..let the hate flow through you....

I don't know. That just doesn't seem to add up. I know math can be a divisive subject among people, but it's really just a sine of the times that it is a very important thing to learn despite its poor reputation. Everyone does have a differential opinion, sometimes verging on radical, about what their favorite subjects might be, and only a fraction of people seem to truly enjoy math as a subject. See, I honestly didn't mind it as a subject, though I was far from being at my prime in that classroom as compared to others. I don't really get the angle of "math is evil" when it comes right down to it. It seems rather obtuse to me in the end.

But there, I've gone off on a tangent and should probably just let things lie.
