I don't mind seeing Aasimars and Tieflings go, but would it be so bad to get the elemental-blooded races into PFS standard play?

These were our GM boons this year and will remain our GM boons through Gen Con 2015. We didn't want to open them so soon and snub GMs who just received an elemental boon over the past few months. If you GM for a local convention, chances are, you will be able to pick one up.

If boons are going to be required for Aasimar and Tieflings, will more boons be coming into circulation?

Eventually yes, but no plans for right away.

If you are looking to test them out without using them for credit, I suggest the retired scenarios first.

The reason we decided the way we did is it is a lot of new stuff for GMs to tackle at one time, especially if they've had little or no exposure. We didn't want GMs to have to worry about three different ways to adjudicate the same rules system, with Harrow cards, normal cards, and dice. With making it standard across the board, using only the Harrow deck, the hope is that most GMs become familiar with mechanics much more quickly, thus ensuring that gameplay does not bog down. We may reevaluate in the future, but all Harrow related mechanics have only been legal for a month. Let's see how it goes for a year or so before even deciding if changes are needed.

Just the fact that you have to acquire some weird boon by doing a con or at random to play something unique and fun and have a more characterful choice besides a elf or a dwarf feels like a huge back step for me.

So what do you propose the race boons, that are used to reward those volunteering at PFS events (worldwide and online) for their time, be replaced with?

I'm not afraid of change, I just think that the current system works very well, and nobody has proposed a better solution.

I would maybe suggest boons that open up other options that are locked out such as classes or archetypes that aren't currently legal like what they had for the Assassin maybe a boon to have access to the Blackfire Adept, the Siege Gunner or Undead Lord archetype, maybe a boon that lets you purchase 1 advanced firearm, or one that allows access to not currently legal item like a Blade of the Sword-Saint
So, if we do that, then we remove the items we like to use for charity auctions. What do you suggest we replace the charity item boons with?

Keep some of the things for charity auctions? Just because you change where some of them are doesn't mean they all have to go there.

Such as open Drow to people but have a rare con/charity boon where they can gain the Drow Noble feats, have Undead Lord be a con boon and Synthesist Summoner a charity boon, open Ifrits, Kitsune, and Goblins but have the Kasathe, Wyrwood, and Trox still be boons for cons/charity auctions.

Have a con boon for Blackfire Adept and a charity boon for a CN Anti-Paladin, a con boon for a single advanced firearm and a charity boon for a pistol of infinite sky, etc

Just as an aside, Drow aremt going to become legal.

Also, taking your example as a hypothetical, a year after we offer those options for charity, then we get someone coming to the message board advising those options should be open to all, just like you have done from last year's charity auctions.

There is never a point when people are going to stop asking for us to continue to open up more and more. We have to draw a line somewhere and we have.

Edit: We aren't adding boons for options we've removed from society play. They were removed because they weren't a good fit and introducing them back in creates more problems.

Or you can do an apples to apples comparison. You don't just compare [1 con] vs [1 game day] you compare [x tables of conning] vs [x tables of game days]. Its the prerequisite of having the games all bunched in together that seems incredibly arbitrary to me.

And if I compare as you are suggesting, then some game days will take 3 years reach the same amount of tables that one convention does in May, and a similar convention in the same region does in September. Surely, you aren't asking me to make the very unfair comparison of a game day with one game table on a Saturday with five players to one day at a convention that runs 75 players. If that's the case, then sure, I will compare the two. Contact me when that game day has completed 75 Saturdays.

I'm with BNW in that I would like to think that smaller 'events' would warrant the interesting boons. I get that large cons benefit from such a drawcard, however the hobby in general benefits from the drawcard of more accessible 'mini cons' and events that are more suburban in nature.

If these are already catered for with said boons and I am just 'not in the know' then fair enough, but I would like to think the chaps organising and GMing events are equally rewarded.

Edit: ok Saw Mikes post, that's some good numbers :)

As long as a smaller, local con runs 15 tables over three days,they receive the same boons as larger cons. They may only receive 4 different ones instead of 8, but they do receive the same exact ones, including race boons for GMs.

To me, there's a big difference between running a weekly game for your friends at your local games club, and running several slots at a major convention, whether it's running the latest Special, or running several slots of the Confirmation and introducing a whole load of new people to PFS.

This assumes that convention play is more likely to bring in new players, an assumption I can't see any rationale for.

There have been at least 8 conventions this year that have given out at least 75 new PFS numbers over the course of the three day show. How much more rationale do you need that a regional convention attracts more new players than a local game day?

It is my distinct honor to have been able to recognize both England Venture-Captains Rob Silk and Dave Harrison at tonight's PaizoCon Banquet, as the 2014 Paizo Publishing co-volunteers of the year. I will be presenting the award to both of you in a few weeks at PaizoCon UK.

Your tireless efforts to growing Pathfinder RPG and Pathfinder Society, as well as your dedication to building and growing your local gaming community is commendable and deserving of the highest respect of all of us here at Paizo Publishing.

Thank you for everything you have given back to Pathfinder. It is greatly appreciated.

That's a question for the design team for the overall rules set and not just PFS. We don't allow creating custom items in PFS for numerous reasons. It sounds what you are asking for is a custom item that isn't listed in any Rulebook. Please ask your question a few forums up so the design team can address.

So I finally finished reading the playtest of 6-00: Legacy of the Stonelords, cover to cover. I'm excited because I think it is going to be a very good special event.

However, it is only about 2/3 of the final adventure that will debut at Gen Con and be available across the world for global play for a year. In that first 2/3, there is so much awesome that it could stand by itself as a special. HOWEVER.....

I'm even more excited because I know what comes next in the final 1/3 of the adventure. It is a twist that very few will see. It is going to be a fantastic experience. I can't wait to see the reaction in the Sagamore when the room thinks the special is over and it is just ramping up to start the epic conclusion.

This is going to be fun and I am going to explode not being able to talk about the true ending for a full 6 weeks.

Play and GM and thoroughly enjoy this playtest folks. It is going to be a very fun time. But, just wait until you finally get to see the last 1/3 of the adventure. I think you are going to truly enjoy what more is coming!

Pretty much. PFS is filled with a bunch of homebrew that is supposedly the RAW, even though this is but one of many rulings PFS makes that contradicts the intent and RAW of the rules entirely. It's also the sole reason why Crane Style feat chain became absolutely garbage, so you can imagine not many people respect PFS gameplay on the boards, myself included.

Actually you are way off base. But, I'm not going to argue with someone who doesn't have one session of PFS on his play history as a GM or a player. Also, PFS is not the sole reason Crane Style feat was changed. There were numerous reasons, but again, I'm not going to argue publicly with you about it since it is apparent you have already made your mind up that it was.

Not having read it all yet, I reserve judgment on what his attitude might be. ;-)

My first question: In the introduction you specify that we should "pick an NPC that suits their particular role-playing style, or indeed, to use a suitable alternative." Does that mean we can do like last year and run the intro as our own Seeker characters? Because Venture-Captain The Great Rinaldo would LOVE to be giving guidance to a group of young pathfinders in this event ... ;-)

Yes, you may use your own seeker if you like since the scenario advises, "....or indeed, to use a suitable alternative."

Sorry not trying to take it out on you Mike, I am just frustrated and flustered.
Trust me, I fully understand and cannot apologize enough for the confusion. On the posiitve side, your GMs have the same amount of time to prepare another scenario as these new ones. These last four scenarios are a little more complex than normal scenarios so you are going to want them to have the extra time to prepare them. To make up for the terrible mistake, I would be more than happy to email you a GM and player boon for this weekend's event to try and ease the tension you are going to receive from your GMs. Email me at mike.brock@paizo.com.

Since folks seem to want to force the issue, or be argumentative about it, I will go ahead and clarify that Profession (Torturer) is specifically illegal. There are thousands of other options to choose from. If you desperately need to play only a Profession (torturer) character, save it for a home game. And yes, I will add it to the FAQ since I am sure that is the next question that will come up.

Rebuild rules can be utilized from Ultimate Campaign. Additionally, a GM boon for some tiers of Gen Con allow a full rebuild.
I saw....but what I mostly want to change is ability scores/skills :(

Some of the best roleplaying experiences can come from salvaging a character that is thought wrecked by a poor build (or roll 3 dice 6 times and place them in the attributes in the order they were rolled). How about listing your character here, advise your thoughts on how you would like the character to progress, and let the community help you with some suggestions? You might be surprised how fun the character could actually be to play, especially if you want to incorporate roleplay suggestions into it.

As a matter of fact, if you do such, play the character to 8 levels higher than it is now, and then give a report here of what it was like and how the character progressed, I will send you one of my personal, unused GM race boons (of your choice) I have that is collecting dust.

Mike, will this possibly be a recurring thing for 2015 as well, or does this look more like a single time occurrence?

If we do a play test again in 2015, it will likely apply then as well. But, if I can make my fortitude and Will saves, I hope to eventually make the Grand Convocation a thing again.

Hi all. The Gen Con special we are running at PaizoCon (and PaizoCon UK) is the play test for Gen Con. As such, we are saving some surprises for the final version at Gen Con and ever final running afterwards.

With that in mind, people playing the Gen Con special at PaizoCon will be allowed to play the special again at Gen Con or afterward once all the surprises are revealed. This will work similar to the GM replay, where you can play it at PaizoCon and then again once afterwards for credit, as long as it's a different character. This is our way to say thank you for helping us make it an awesome scenario and rewarding you for feedback helping us make it an awesome event for worldwide release.

Thanks again Mike.

I had listened to John's Know Direction podcast, so understood the three faction thing, but didn't think that though as why the game day restiction. I suppose that, from my point of view, it sounds so cool that I really want to play/DM it right now...ok, when it is released. I do "sort of" game days, but they are at our home, but can have more than one table running at once.

Trust me, I understand. When I was a VC, we would host four simultaneous tables at my house in the first slot, and four or five tables in the second slot on every other Saturday until my wife threw us out.

Your comments weren't directed towards the original poster's issues. I took the time to try and provide a viable solution to the dilemma at the beginning of the thread, amidst the other sarcastic and negative comments. Regardless of whether or not my interpretation of the rules needed clarification, at least I attempted to help rectify the situation at hand. I have more than adequately provided my opinion on the rules in this thread.

You've made it clear that environmental effects cannot be defined by the GM if not specified in the scenario. However, you have yet to provide practical advice to the original poster. I'm excited about the World Cup and I love Manchester United in soccer -- going to the game at the end of July against Inter Milan at FedEx Field. However, when reviewing your recent posts, your focus was on other topics.

You are correct, my experiences with Pathfinder is limited in scope to the beginning scenarios thus far, because that's what the other GMs have been running as of late. They are underpowered by nature. However, like so many others, I have run tables before and have previous experience in 3.5 and so forth.

What I wanted is a practical solution to the problem listed at the beginning of the thread other than 'deal with it'.

Advertising four slots available for earlier scenarios at a table and accommodating more if necessary is the only solution to make the scenarios more challenging as the rules currently stand.

That's the answer I was looking for. I'm not the only frustrated person in our group about this topic, but at least now a workable solution is reached.

I didn't provide advice to the OP because I'm not an expert in PTSD and can't advise him of how to handle his personal situation,so I leave others with much more experience in that topic to provide him better answers than I can. Better to not provide any information than to provide bad information that can make the situation worse.

It is good there is no more confusion and you found your practical solution. Thanks for the feedback. We will consider it when we start making changes in guide 6.0. If you have suggestions on text that would make it less frustrating for you and others, feel free to offer those up. I invite the others in your group that are also frustrated on this topic, to come post here.

I tried to send a PM to address your other points because I don't want to be argumentative on the message boards. I also discussed your problems you've advised were present with your VC, but you don't have PMs activated. I can't send any further message and I choose not to post anything further that would be construed as argumentative or might embarrass you on a public message boards. If you wish me to send an email, I can do so. Otherwise, I consider this matter at an end since you advised you found what you were looking for.

Thanks for the feedback. We will consider it when we start making changes in guide 6.0. If you have suggestions on text that would clarify it for you and others, feel free to offer those up. You are the first to express confusion with this specific language in the Guide, so unless we find others with the same confusion, it is unlikely to change.

Mike, you marked as favorite BigNorseWolf's comment "I think that intent was pretty clear in what was written" along with the other comment below it. Please don't ask for my opinion on how the text should be worded if you don't intend on using it and its unlikely to change. You could have submitted your comments at any time to clarify the situation, but you decided to wait until the tonality shifted considerably in this thread before doing so.

I'd rather focus my time on the next gaming session I am running, within the new criteria you clarified accordingly.

I ask for opinions because it is how I form decisions on what is best for PFS. Just because people offer up opinions doesn't mean I'm always going to use them. But, I do consider them. I think I've shown a track record of changing things that need to be changed at the behest of the player base when a solid reasoning is given. But, if only one person, out of 65,000, has expressed confusion about one paragraph in the Guide, then it is unlikely to change. If you don't want to provide your opinion, or feel it would be a waste of time, then don't submit it. It's totally up to you.

And for the record, I did submit my comments back on page 3 of this thread. I didn't "wait until the tonality shifted considerably in this thread before doing so."
