I've been kind of distant with gaming lately due to some outside interests and just don't have the time to manage the shared drive like it needs to be.
With that being said, I've chatted with Rob and he has agreed to take over the reigns of the shared drive and hopefully make it bigger and better for all of us.
you can email the to email@example.com .. just be sure that the subject line is "please upload to XX-XX scenario" so we know where they are going

Exactly ... I was trying to avoid having to do a website so it could still be accessible ... but too many problems lately that make a website more feasible .. users will have upload/download permissions only so we can avoid having deletion issues going forward.
@Redward ... one of the ones helping me has mid-feb back ups so we'll be using that to restore what has recently been lost
The person in question has already been contacted by me, the deletion was an accident and no they cannot recover the files, which is why there is the migration ... please do not contact anyone regarding the file deletion.
Please be patient while things are being transferred over ... I have three people working on this for me as I honestly don't have the time right now with everything I've got going on.
There is going to be some temporary issues ... email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need something you know was there but can't find and I/we can get it sent to you ... as of yet we are not giving out the new website so that we can have it up and running before the onslaught starts lol.

Myself and another are working on cleaning it up and moving it to a website ... Please bear with us as we also work full time and have stuff we're doing outside of gaming and work right now.
Please also do not delete things from the drive at this point. It will be cleaned up and offending/illegal items removed.
@Matthew -- I never wanted to have to be the babysitter for this project, it's huge and I don't have the time on my own to go through each and every upload to verify it's validity; this is a community driven site and as such needs to be policed by the community and by the members that upload to it.
I've been talking to a couple of people and will have some admin helpers as the admins will be the only ones with deletion rites to avoid this kind of thing happening again.
It's going to take time to get it all moved and set up.
I don't believe there are any ratfolk boons available at this time. After Gencon you may see a few in action.
I would suggest looking for conventions in your local area and getting boons then coming back with a trade offer. Very rarely are boons just given up for free to be perfectly honest
Calling all prep users. There was information that was deleted by someone that didn't realize they were deleting directly from the shared drive.
They have cleared their deleted folder and the information has been lost as it was not in the backups that were created.
I am working with a friend to create a dedicated website for this as this is the 2nd occurrence of information being lost.
The list is quite long and quite honestly would take hours to write out. Needless to say, if you can look at the details and the long list of what was removed and replace any of it, it would be much appreciated.
**If anyone knows of a free webhosting idea or would be willing to help create a dedicated website and make it functional please email me or PM me here, any and all help is appreciated.
Hrmm ... let's play the game "Guess which nights the bunny is out drinking"
Thursday 7:30 AM - 3:45 PM: Marshal

Who is the one coordinating the gameday? I would talk to them and see what you can work out ... seems like there are tons of good options, just a matter of finding the one that works for you and your Gran

I think this is more of a corner case, it it kinda falls in with what Mike was saying, however, there are a couple of twists that could say other wise ...
Hrm.. Well, I'm not too worried about the core, I'm just worried about being able to handle what I need to and ready for anything. Would taking a laptop/tablet work if you had access to the PDF's? Or do you HAVE to use the physical books?
PDFS are the super easy way to go .. in my opinion
I thought there was a huge dust-up awhile back about this, and basically it was stated that if the event was posted on the Paizo website and listed as open, it had to be inclusive... I don't believe that that would hold muster to something being in someone's private home or listed as a game on another site.
I believe (if I remember right) that Mike stated that if you were holding a game in your home that you could invite anyone you wanted or not invite those you didn't. Keeping in mind that this was in reference to it being a private game at that point and not a public one.
Without knowing specific circumstances past what we were told...
Who says that you have to use the local meet-up group? the VC so that he can keep track of the games played in his area? In my opinion that is overstepping the boundaries of a VO position to insert public practices into a private home setting.
I personally would suggest making your own meet-up site, the VO can be part of it if he wants to keep tabs on it. But then you can deny people that you don't want in your home.
You'll need to make sure that you have the books that are needed for the things that your character uses.
If you have 4 books that you've pulled info from, those are the 4 books you'll need to take with you.
Alternatively, if you have the books in pdf format, you can print out just the pages you need and put those in the binder with the character.
**the rationale for this is that the onus for providing the information should the GM have a question falls to the player. If the player doesn't have the reference and the GM doesn't, there is no way to make an at the table ruling on how the character's "shiny" works.

Remember guys, qualifying for 5 stars doesn't mean you automatically get a 5th star. Mike Brock has to approve and award you the star.
I don't think anyone has been disputing that fact
Awesome list and tons of research on with getting all the information sorted. Nice to see all the dedicated volunteers
Succeeding on check is kind of going to be up to the individual GM as there is no precedence for pets aiding on skill checks, only familiars. Be sure to talk to the GM before hand, but don't be disappointed if he/she says no. Just fair warning.
Not saying that you can't use it as part of the role-play aspect :)
mmmm Gnomes like cookies
There are no spells for familiars ... There are certain classes that can have them (i.e. wizard and witch) otherwise you'd want to buy the animal from the equipment list and then you'd have a fun pet, but it wouldn't be an animal companion.
Lol ... another hook for us 5 Stars lol... *sigh* guess I'd better do some more prep work

Patrick, in all honesty ... I get where you're at. I really do. And I get what you're saying. Please allow me to interject that I think you're reacting a bit strongly over something that really honestly isn't that big of a deal.
Personally I'm going to go to lunch and forget this thread exists. My excitement over something new has been dampened.

*shrug* again GMs need to know their limitations.
but that's my opinion, not going to continuously argue my opinion with people

Lets ask Doug how many conventions he sat at with Midnight Mauler and ran it for the whole convention ... I know of a few in there lol
Burnout happens no matter the scenario ... at that point it's more a matter of the GM recognizing their limits and being able to say "no" I need a weekend off.
