However, if the actions of the PCs before or during an encounter invalidate the provided tactics or starting locations, the GM should consider whether changing these would provide a more enjoyable play experience. Additionally, the GM may consider utilizing terrain and environmental conditions when those effects have been written into the flavor of a scenario but the mechanics that are normally associated with them by the Core Rulebook have not been added to the encounters.
Another option we can consider is to wait for 30-60 days after a book is released to update Additional Resources. This will allow plenty of time for the playerbase to give feedback on a book and all it contains so there is very little chance we ever miss anything.idont think that is the best option but it would almost eliminate someone choosing something that might later become an illegal option because it was missed and not recognized as too powerful for OP.
On the issue of table assignments how practical would it be for the numbers to be printed on the tablecloths? The signs were helpful but were often removed to make space.
The table cloths belong to the convention center so we can't print on them. It's why I had stand up, double sidedtable tents, as well as single sided table tents with the highest level of sticky side printed for every table. I'm not sure what you mean by removed because on Sunday, every table still had its sticky table tent still attached.
Please join me in congratulating Lucas Servideo as the newest recipient of the PFS Campaign Service Award.
Lucas has served as the Boston/North Shore Venture-Lieutenant for several years. His efforts have fostered growth and community cohesion in his region. He makes my job easier and I thank him for that. His PFS portfolios he produces with his own money and distributes for free among the playerbase have received the highest praise from the community and I encourage you to reach out to him to obtain a copy.
He has also done a tremendous job with the kid's track, both in his local area, and 2013 and 2014 Gen Cons. Single-handedly, he has turned my ideas for the Kid's track from good to great with his efforts. From doing television interviews to producing "draw your own goblin" coloring sheets, the kid's track program is stronger because of Lucas. I've had at least 10 parents come up to HQ this year at Gen Con to tell me how amazing the Kid's Track experience has been to their family, and specifically how much Lucas' efforts have personally created a lifelong memory for their child and converted their child to a Pathfinder fan.
A link to his interview talking about Kid's Track at Gen Con 2013 can be found HERE. His passion about the Kid's Track really shows.
He has my highest respect and most sincere thank you for all of his work. Without him, PFS would not be where it is today.
Congratulations Lucas Servideo. You are now PFS number 723 and one of the pillars that Society is built upon!
Please join me in congratulating Todd Morgan, Bob Jonquet, and Del Collins as the newest recipients of the PFS Campaign Service Award.
Todd has served as the Iowa Venture-Captain, then transitioned to the Venture-Captain of Omaha, NE, and has served since September 2011. His efforts have fostered growth and community cohesion in both regions.
Bob has served as the Chicago Venture-Captain, then transitioned to the Venture-Captain of Central and Southern Illinois and has served since October 2011. His efforts have fostered growth and community cohesion across the entire state of Illinois.
Both Todd and Bob worked throughout the past 11 months between last year's Gen Con and this year's, to help Jon Cary (a campaign service award recipient himself) and I formulate plans to make all aspects of PFS at Gen Con run more smoothly. They willingly gave up all of their 2014 Gen Con to make sure that more than 2,000 PFS fans had the best experience possible over the four days of the show. They served as my right hand men and helped me keep my sanity (and get a decent amount of sleep).
Del has served as the South Carolina Venture-Captain since October 2011. He is running his 499th reported PFS session at the Gen Con Special tonight. Through his affiliation with SCARAB, he has coordinated hundreds of conventions and game days throughout the Carolina's, southern Georgia, northern Florida, and Tennessee. He has also done some amazing work for various charities utilizing PFS.
All three have spent thousands of hours volunteering, and thousands of dollars out of their own pocket to make PFS amazing in their respective regions. All three are five star GMs.
All three have my highest respect and most sincere thank you for all of their volunteer work. Without them, PFS would not be where it is today. They exemplify the values of what organized play and community building is all about.
Congratulations Todd, Bob, and Del. You are now PFS numbers 720, 721, and 722 respectively, and one of the pillars that Society is built upon!
As long as we are able to get badges early on Wed., we can start handing them out at 1 pm. As for Thursday, the earliest will likely be 7:30 am.
So the bonus to rerolls, as well as the only way to currently replay one to five favorite scenarios above first level is useless? So noted.
Mostly because of its theme.
All changes and corrections will be made after Gen Con since I'm already on the way to Indianapolis and responding from 33,000 feet in the air.
Yes, it should read that Tiefling characters are not legal for play without a Chronicle sheet. Thanks for pointing out the ARG entry. We will get it fixed.
I have read each and every post. This will be dealt with when the new Additional Resources goes live tomorrow.
Probably not. When I met him, he wanted me to bow. When I asked him to show me what he meant, and he demonstrated the bow, I put my beer on his head since it made a good resting spot.
Will be available for purchase Thu, Jul 30, 2015.
I've resent the following email to everyone I have received emails from expressing an interest, You should have received it. Here it is:
We are still nailing down requirements for the card game VL position, what support and rewards will be available, etc... Also, you will need to work with whichever VC is closest to you regionally as they will be completing convention support requests for physical product as prize support. If you have not already done so, please email them to get the ball rolling on that end.
I am currently in England and won't be back in the office until Aug. 4. Once I'm there, I will see if any decisions have been finalized and approved. Please keep in mind that it will be two weeks before Gen Con and official appointments of VLs may not be made until after.
I have received and replied to every email, even with the busy time of PaizoCon and my vacation the week afterward. Please check your spam filter. If you emailed without going through the closest VC, my reply was to please work with that person to send in your request since you will be working directly with that VC for prize support for regional and local conventions.
We are waiting until we have the NDA in place, rewards for VLs set up, etc... to proceed with appointments of VLs.
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.
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.
I've sent boons to PCC the past two years. I'm not sure why you didn't receive any.
And the fact that people want a race boon the most makes it the perfect incentive for rewarding a GM who volunteers time at a con.
