I update Additional Resources every month. I will get this added within the next month, along with the other new releases, just like I do every month. The next update may be delayed a week or two due to PaizoCon and Origins back to back, but it will get done. Most likely timeframe will be a week or two after I get back from Origins.
Please join me in congratulating the five newest campaign service award recipients. The recipients include:
VC Andrew Christian
Their efforts have fostered growth and community cohesion in their respective regions. They make my job easier and I thank them for that. Their PFS Work with large regional conventions and local charities places them as pillars of the community and members of the community that people can look to as an outstanding PFS example.
All five have served more than 1,000 days each as venture officers.
They have my highest respect and most sincere thank you for all of their work. Without them, PFS would not be where it is today.
Congratulations Andrew Christian. You are now PFS number 724!
A big thank you goes out to Jonathan Choy, aka...TetsujinOni, for coming to the Paizo office yesterday and helping me work on Guide 7.0 for 3-4 hours.
Jon took notes from the message board posts, made a list, and we worked together on the new Guide. We eliminated some things (should be 7-8 pages shorter), rearranged some info to make it flow better, deleted some unnecessary text, clarified some confusing language, moved info to different parts of the Guide that made more since (for example, character retraining to After the Adventure section instead of in the character creation section), etc....
Overall, the Guide will be more concise, user friendly, and a better product, and a good amount of credit goes to Jon for that!

Maybe she divined it in the morning after she had already memorized spells. Who knows? It is what it is and why we are taking steps to do what we can to change not only the perception of the society throughout Golarion, but also from top to bottom in the organization.

I'm aware of why it was done. That didn't stop my players from yelling at her to DO something about her imminent demise.
Two groups I've run through it have said the same thing. Maybe she is depressed and just wants to die. /shrug maybe it's her way of going to jump off a cliff or in a lake ;-)

No, I don't need to be told it is appreciated more. I understand it is. I need not be accused of being trolling or prickly when I'm just having a conversation. That is appreciated in and of itself.
If I add a nature-lover faction, I can't imagine what I'm going to be called next, considered prickly has already been used ;-)

Not getting prickly here. I'm not even bothered to tell you the truth. I got to celebrate my daughter turning 8 at a Frozen birthday party today. BTW, It isn't my "lore baby." It was already in place when I took over the job. If we hit the reset button today, you would find I would do things a bit differently. As a matter of fact, I don't have any "lore baby" specifically so I can look at the campaign from a completely neutral perspective without getting possessive or protective over any part of it. (Its also one reason I haven't written a scenario.) I had an oracle who was a Shadow Lodge member (my -4 character) and a samurai that was Lantern Lodge (my -6 character). As much as I hated for both of those characters to lose the factions that fit their characters perfectly, it was best for the campaign that we try not to have factions based off of a specific season. It makes it very difficult to give those factions important meaning in future seasons, especially when we move away from a specific area of Golarion.
Also, I'm just asking questions and making observations. Stop reading tone in my post. There is none there and everything I've typed is stated matter of factly if anything. I would love to have more chats like this but people always think I have some tone or am trolling or whatever when all I'm really trying to do is converse with the playerbase and mostly theorycarft. /sigh
P.S. You will find I get prickly, however, when my Atlanta Falcons sign a washed-up OL man from Washington.

If you've played EoT, you should know better.
Also, why worry what others think about you when you have 20,000 magic items and artifacts in your basement? ;-)
Yes. The current plan is to give a different, alternate painted miniatures during each of the multi-table specials.

What I would love to hear is why, in game world, would the Decimverate ever consider keeping someone in their private and voluntary organization to watch over them. Are you able to advise a reason why they would want someone looking over their shoulder and questioning what they want done?

Each person may only have one account. You may not have an account that 2 or 6, or 9 or whatever amount of people share. The quote you posted from me is so a dad and daughter or a husband and wife or whatever may share resources. It isn't a loophole to allow five people to make a joint account to share one PDF. If you are at a different table, the PDF should be watermarked with your account. Friends who meet periodically and play doesn't fall under the "same household living together" that you quoted.
Every time the Society has to deal with Torch, Torch always finds a way to screw us and come out ahead.
Glad to hear this. He was ALWAYS supposed to be this guy since the start of the campaign. If the perception now that this is what he is, then Things are starting to balance out where they always were supposed to have been.

I really hope the plan is to have that in the middle close to the doors so that people going by can see the terrain and have a chance to come in to check it out.
The fire marshal won't allow us to occupy the center aisle with anything but a single table for info and FAQ. It will be off to the right side near Hero Lab, Quests, beginner box and KT area. People should be able to see the terrain from the right doors at least.
So, this gives us the 3d goblin invasion, as well as six new quests, to fill people's time when not actively involved in playing scenarios. Note that these and the quests should both be able to continue running through the Specials as well.

What is "Goblin 3d Invasion"? I haven't heard of that one, yet.
The plan is to have a walk-up, first come first serve event running throughout the show. 3-4 GMs will have a set of 8-12 missions for raiding goblin parties to accomplish. We can have up to four different goblin raiding parties running rampant throug the town at the same time. The missions could be burn the stable, capture the gate, whatever. Once four to six people walk up, the GM hands them a random mission, hands out the four to six goblin pregens, and runs the party of iconics tasked to stop the goblins. It will be played out on an L shaped table with 3d terrain. Once the goblin party succeeds or is wiped out, the GM hands them a Chronicle sheet with a boon that reflects how they fared. We will likely have different check boxes on the Chronicle sheet to correspond to each of the m8-12 missions so people will hopefully want to keep coming back to play. That's essentially it. It should fill a good spot for walk ups, for people who finish their game early, or similar time frames as the new Quests will offer.
Miniature Building Authority is supplying and setting up the 3d terrain for us. We will be using our own goblin and iconic hero minis.

Not wanting to be a pest; but when do we get badge information? I have only limited free time and want to be able to sign up for a couple events that my wife can make it too.
As soon as Gen Con assigns me the lot of badges, I will get them into GM accounts. I'm still waiting but reminding them often.
Be careful when speaking in absolutes. If a first time player shows up with a drow ranger or kobold fighter or some other race or class that isn't legal, please don't let him play with that character. Offer them a pregen if needed. But, you don't allow someone to play against the rules or spirit of OP just because they are a first time player. Also, please don't fudge reports.
