Ahh ... so society play has a few different guidelines than homebrew play. I've flagged this to have it moved to the rules forum where you'll get a much broader opinion and answer than you will in society play.


For Society play, there is no re-skinning -- or making something like like something else.

So if you want a specific weapon, it has to look like the specific weapon -- i.e. the spike chain .. has to look like a spiked chain.

I'm not aware of anything in your specific area.. Memphis is fairly close and I'm in Nashville .. always welcome to drive up and join one of our games if you are desperate for gaming

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 tableclothes belong to the convention center so we cannot print on them, however, there were stickers that matched the signs on the tables.

unfortunately when maps are laid out it's hard to see those .. as long as GMs keep the signs somewhere on the table and don't cover them up until after players are seated and the marshals have come around for tickets and tokens things should go smoothly

This being my first Gen Con, I have to say I was very impressed by how well everything ran! Kudos to all the amazing people running around in the bright orange shirts! We couldn't have done it without you. Also, the constant stream of water (pun intended) was also greatly appreciated!

That being said, I might have a few ideas to make things run even more smoothly.

1) I noticed that a lot of the mustering had people crossing the entire Sagamore ballroom... I wonder if there would be a way to not assign which section mustered at which iconic until after HQ can see which order the banners were put up?

my understanding is that when the table assignments were made, there was an assumption that the iconics would be hung in alpha order .. they were not ..

leaving them til the last minute would be horribly hectic and chaotic and condense 18+ hours of organizational work into just a couple of hours

I've got a couple of ideas for that, which would not cause that problem. If you are interested, I can take this offline.

Heh .. I'm the wrong person as I have no control over that and won't be at GenCon next year. I would email Jon or Bob or Todd about it.. or put it in here

This is the first time I've played PFS at GenCon - played about half a year prior to the con. I did find it kind of odd to randomly get this particular boon since I've only been a player so far, so I traded it almost immediately to someone posting in the boon trading thread. I wanted to play a non-standard race, that player had several options, I told them to pick one and send that in exchange for the recharge boon. Without commenting on the con / non-con distribution, it may have been better to only give the boon to GMs since it seems like it would matter most to people who have GMed a lot.

This I can agree with for this specific boon ..

Actually, the larger the room has gotten over the past years the better the level of noise has gotten; as the sound has further to travel and doesn't bounce off walls as much anymore.

Or organize a local gameday or con with at least 15 tables. Its easy, done it numerous times.
Lots of people can't do it, and its rude, arrogant, and condescending as hell when you insist that your circumstances MUST be their circumstances.

(I'm using going to use general, not specific terms so no taking this personal mmkay)

To be honest .. these complaints are lodged every year .. and every year the same advice and information is given.

It would be nice (from a con-goer side) if those that lodge these complain each year would look at alternatives instead of lodging complaints that they aren't getting something.

If those of use defending the use of boons for cons sound annoyed it's because we go through these conversations EVERY year... repeating ourselves is tiring

P.S. Sorry Thea that I couldn't run Scars cold that one time, but I knew it was an investigation and I would definitely mess it up if I ran it cold.

Not a biggie :) I asked and worked with your answer :)

*****

Srsly .. can those of us who got one get at least a week to enjoy them before all the moaning starts?

yes it sucks that its cons only .. but boons are handed down to smaller regional cons all the time .. if there is one local go to it and GM .. simple procedure imo

**and a note .. not ALL cons are expensive are hard to get there (yes I know there are exceptions).

I simply put it this way...

If I want someone to GM specials at both GenCon and our local cons, then they don't get credit without the boon each year. If they recharge stars each year, then it's easier to ask GM's who got experience at GenCon to run again locally. It would at least help if it was an automatic GM boon at cons instead of a random one.

I was told "you could win one at the local con..."

That is too late, although it might help to convince GM's for the following year.

Perhaps ... but .. hopefully we can get the boon for BunnyCon in February and you'll come down to Nashville and GM :)

It was easier to not have to seat GMs on top of players; my only minor issue is one that will not change ... as a shorter marshal being surrounded on all sides by players all clamoring for a seat.

Something for marshals to stand on would be awesome.

It might be possible to ask the players closest to you to take a knee, or bow down before the marshal, to help see the back of the crowd.

I just said they were scaring a poor bunny and grabbed a chair ... while unstable for the most part worked lol

From a marshalling standpoint things were MUCH improved.

I got one group to step back by letting them know they were scaring a poor bunny (wearing my ears lol) and they backed off a little

There is a possibility that you can email Mike and he can look for it ... I'm sooooooo not guaranteeing anything on his behalf lol .. but it's possible to see if he'd look ..

I'd give him at least a week to wade though emails thought

My highlights were mainly seeing old friends and making new ones.

Freaky highlight was Thod coming up and going FLUFFY lol .. cause of the ears

I typically lug my huge laptop around to provide my PDF sources for PFS, but I'm thinking of downloading them all to my phone. But that means a last-minute trip to buy a portable phone charger; any suggestions?

phone stuff would mean less cords .. there is no guarantee that you will find a spot to plug it in and cords looping across the floor are a major hazard

Mainly to avoid PFS from becoming a zoo is what I understand. Since they are opening up new races, they are taking away some old

• Being able to say I've been to GenCon! :D

• Hoping to meet some Paizo staff and/or forum peeps—not least of which is you, PFCBG, so I can give you a proper in-person thanks for the kitsune boon you gave my wife, from which she's derived much enjoyment. :)
• Wrapping up my favorite character's two-year story (technically he'll be landing at 11.2 rather than 12.0, but still).

someone wants to meet me??

PFCBG, you moved?

Lol .. back in October .. I'm a Southern bunny now in Nashville

In the spirit of I'm about to have an awesome weekend the weekend before Gencon and expect tat to tide me over until Gencon..

What are you looking forward to the most at Gencon? We'll keep the PFS related cause .. we gotta ..

I'm looking forward to seeing friends I haven't seen since last year, and some close ones from Iowa I haven't seen since I moved.

I'm wondering how many people are going to try and pet the purple bunny.. or if people will know who I am

I'm wondering if my ears are going to stay on!! the purple leather makes them kinda heavy lol.

I'm excited to see new PFS players be all excited about OP system and get into it as much as I am

Glad things went well... we had a 7 person table at the Game Keep as well. Between your game, the Game Keep, and a potential Spring Hill / Columbia game that might be starting up, the Middle Tennessee area is starting to have quite a few people playing

Which is awesome. Just need to get more word of mouth out there about gamedays lol

*****

The scenario for the July 19 game day is

03-05 Tide of Twilight

A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for Levels 1–5.

In researching a recently recovered druidic lorestone, the Pathfinder Society learns of a powerful artifact with the power to turn men into bestial abominations. Amid claims of increased werewolf activity in the region, the PCs travel into the heart of the Verduran Forest to retrieve the valuable relic from a cabal of evil druids believed to currently hold it.

My first trial by fire if you will, was running classic tables at Origins 2010 .. I'd been GMing for 3 months and Doug threw me into the fire and expected me to dance ..

I danced .. I learned .. and I grew and hopefully became a better GM for it in the long run.

Running cold sucks .. and has been stated enough times in this thread alone that we don't need to go into another one.

Mitigation: .. if it's a matter of the GM not taking the time to prep there isn't a lot the coordinator can do if the GM chooses to run cold. Simply put, if the GM had the time (exceptional circumstances apply) and didn't take it .. that GM shouldn't be asked to GM again, but there should also be a conversation with the GM.

If it's a matter of the GM volunteering at the last minute .. explain to the table .. allow the GM 10 minutes to read over and provide them with additional resources they may need as they are helping to save the coordinator booty and getting a table to make.

*****

No, you wouldn't. The storylines didn't really start until season 1, so you'd be fine.

*****

Hey guys,

At one point, we could upload maps to the shared drive, however, it has been stated (and I think posted on the new website for the prep drive) that maps fall under copyright material(I'm sure someone can explain it better) and unfortunately we are not allowed to put maps up on the shared drive website anymore.

It would be advisable to email the admins for the drive website and let them know which scenarios had maps added so they can remove them
