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.

Is it normal that I emailed Mike Brock about being a VO on June 26, and a follow-up in July 10, and haven't gotten a reply? As we get closer, I'm getting more concerned I haven't heard anything back.

It appears to be normal, as I've had the same experience, sent initial email on June 26, a follow-up on July 9 asking did you receive my previous e-mail. Still haven't heard anything.

I can understand that they wanted to get e-mail from interested people before they were ready to announce all the details. But not responding with at least a 'we got your e-mail, we will be in touch' means that they run the risk of some people getting left out since they can't know that their e-mail didn't get through.

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.

Reading this it sounds like "GM at cons=get race boons." But I know this certainly isn't enough to do it. I have GMed at Phoenix Comicon 2 years in a row with no boons. Ultimately this irrelevant for me now since I just moved to a very Pathfinder light area and my free time has dropped dramatically. But I do think it still a relevant point for others.

Also Brom, I suggested something very similar probably close to a year ago and it never got much feedback.

I've sent boons to PCC the past two years. I'm not sure why you didn't receive any.

I think the answer is its not a race boon and that's what people want most.

My personal feelings on the current boon is that, since I GM a lot, I end up with a lot of GM credit babies so I have a corresponding large number of characters. So a boon that I can only apply to one character seems a little underwhelming, especially when I have a choice of 3 boons but can only pick 1.

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.

The difference in "drawing the line" based upon event size and based upon GM stars is that doing it based upon event size means GMs have to come up with a way to attend events, which is harder to fit in with our personal lives, and rewarding based on GM stars rewards continued involvement in the campaign. GMs can go YEARS without fitting in time to attend events, and until they do, the system doesn't care about their contributions on any meaningful level.

Even with higher goals, the GM star "cutoff", as you put it, at least gives people a goal to work towards.

I can't speak for others, but I can tell you that I certainly would NOT find them "lackluster"; some of the races I'd most like to play are ones that apparently you aren't handing out boons for anymore (and no, goblin isn't one I want to play).

But we already have a boon for GM stars and gives a new reward with each new star. My current perception is that, even though it is exactly the type of system you are asking for you don't like it. Is that incorrect?

Do you have an easy way of telling how much someone has GMed over a given period of time? Seems to me rewarding people for that rather than total games GMed might work better as a motivation for local game days.

Unfortunately no. Manual counting is all I've got currently.

There is a difference between opening them up for everyone and simply rewarding a limited subset of additional people with them.

Mike,

During the year you give out several different race boons at Cons. How about pick 1 race for a year that is only given out as a reward based on GM stars or, better yet, tables GMed over a given period? You can still reward people that go to Cons with plenty exclusive race boons. Meanwhile, you are still rewarding people for GMing who don't/can't attend cons. Make it exclusive based on tables GMed in a give period and you will reward people for doing something other than just GMing at cons a couple of times a year. I don't see why it has to be all or nothing. BNW isn't asking that you give him the entire cake you are giving con GMs. Just a slice of it. I am suggesting you give them their own cupcake.

Because my experience is that if it isn't something the person has an interest in, it doesn't solve anything. How would it be received if I advised, anyone who earns a second star during season 6 gets a wayang boon? I just don't think many people would care.

I haven't kept track but I'm reasonably sure that at least 75 players had their first session at the store I coordinate for over the last year. Note that a significant majority of these had their PFS numbers BEFORE coming to the store.

So it sounds like with that many new people combined with existing players, 15 tables over three days shouldn't be too difficult!

What about options to allow story feats or even more ways to gain mythic abilities? As of right now, these both from two hardcover books that are of limited use in PFS play.

Both of those are bad options for OP, with the exception of a once off mythic boon for that scenario only. And. My suspicion is the bidding would be much less for those than race/class options, which is the opposite of what we are going for in charity auctions.

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

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.

Paizo Employee ***** Global Organized Play Coordinator

BNW, I'm trying to understand what exactly you are arguing for.

Are you asking for anytime anyone GMs, they receive a boon?

Are you advising even home game GMs, that never GM outside of their living room for the same five players rceive a boon everytime they GM a game?

Are you arguing for argument sake because you are bored?

Did you receive your GM race boon at Dex Con this past weekend?

I'd need a comparison with the number of PFS numbers handed out over a similar number of tables spread out over smaller events.

Sure. And by the time you've got the numbers for small game days or one day cons, I've had ten more shows that have given out another 500-750 new PFS numbers. We can go on all day like this.

The fact is, we do provide boons for stores that can out together 15 tables over 3 days. If the growth and retention is there as you have claimed, it shouldn't be that difficult. Heck, as a VC, I coordinated running 12 tables on a Saturday at my house.

When someone provides a replacement that would attract more people to volunteer, as the race boons currently do, we will consider it. As has been stated a few posts up, people don't consider boons that add to day jobs or give alternative means of spending prestige points as a good incentive.

Oh, and before anyone says we can never get 15 tables in my area so I can't get a race boon, I've sent out race boons to almost a dozen online conventions and events.

Edit: BNW, I see you GMed this past weekend at DexCon. I assume you received the GM boon that opens a race up?

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.

As was mentioned, people clamored for more challenge and we answered that challenge with hard mode. We advised before it was implemented, that it would not be used to imbalance the WBL curve or add boons or whatever and that it would only be for bragging and an additional challenge. Almost everyone was happy with that. I am deep into PaizoCon prep so don't have time to go find the link but it's out there. If we were going to make any changes, we would remove hard mode altogether before adding any additional rewards.

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.

Thanks for pointing that out. I will get it corrected when we next update AR. We don't want to focus solely on deadly dealer (or any other single item) in the event another similar option becomes available in a future product.

I will have Chronicles for every player and GM at PaizoCon, no worries.

As for the playtest, last year we learned that the high level tables blew through the BBEGs at the top tier and we added mythic levels. That seemed to do the trick. We may find that the same holds true this year. Hence, why no final date is given for when the final version will be released. We want to make sure the true ending is fully developed as best as it can be, while at the same time making sure any quality changes in what is currently there are made accordingly.

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!
