Hey everyone,

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.

Thanks Rob

PFCBG

Yayyyyy

Hey All..

I've created some Combat Manager encounter files for the Tier 1-2 version of 04-01: Rise of the Goblin Guild. I would love to get them up on the share so other people can have access to them. Can I just email them to someone? I've got them in a .zip file. I figure that would be the easiest way to download them. I'm working on the Tier 4-5 version now and wouldn't mind sharing them as well once I'm done.
you can email the to pfsgmshardprep@gmail.com .. just be sure that the subject line is "please upload to XX-XX scenario" so we know where they are going

HMM... It bounced when I sent it from my Yahoo.. I'll try from GMAIL..

wait I noticed the email says pfsgmshardprep@gmail.com

Should that be PFSGMSHAREDPREP?

yes

Thank you Rob for being so awesome and doing all the work on this (and the others helping you) life has been stupid crazy busy for me lately.

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 pfssharedgmprep@gmail.com 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.

Thanks to you and the others working on getting the website up and running. I like the format of drive where the files would just be updated automatically, but unfortunately the feature that makes it so awesome is also the one that makes it problematic.

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

Fluffy,

I backed up the entire shared prep folder on 1/3/14. Of course, I don't have anything from after that, but I can send you everything I do have? Unless you've already resolved the problem (with 8 pages of comments, I could easily have missed something...)

sent you a pm :)

*****

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.

Hi all, I'm new to boons, don't actually have any, and not completely sure on how all this works.

Still, here's my offer:

HAVE:
$40 that I can instantly transfer to your PayPal account.

WANT:
Ratfolk race boon.

Please PM if interested. Also, let me know if that's not enough money - I'm not at all sure how much these are worth. (I just REALLY want to run a Ratfolk wizard.)

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

You can download numbers and assign them to the players ... you would just keep track of whose number is whose ... then if they ever want to have a pfs number, you have it and can give it to them.

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.

I don't know what an 05 start time is?

Granted the FLGS has operating hours to manage. But starting a game at 8.30pm (that expects to run 4-5 hours) that's a 1.30am finish is a bit late on a weeknight. - how do you sell that one to your wife/partner?
...A Late starting game is unlikely to be finished by 11.30 - it's a shame their isn't a game/group closer to home for the younger play (who obviously wants to be a part of our community).

Perhaps you could email the organiser of the game or a local VC (their email addresses are in the guide to organised play) and get the details of a friendlier time-sloted game that suits weeknight play.

Can't. My state doesn't have a VC yet. So I can't email anyone.

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 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.

That was a different issue involving the player of a synthesist. It resulted in a very narrow and specific ruling about banning content at individual tables beyond what PFS bans, not a blanket rule that the DM has no control over who is at their publicly advertised table.

Don't mis-apply that inclusion ruling to excluding players rather than characters. All that does is drive DMs into private groups and lessen the number and quality of public games. You can absolutely refuse to seat certain people for any reason.

Wasn't mis-applying and that's not the one I'm thinking of ... though yours did link to the one I was thinking of... so I wasn't miss-applying anything... The real thread

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 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.

@snickersimba: No you cannot play a witch without the Advanced Player Guide.

By that, either a physical copy of the book, having a watermarked PDF with your name on it of the book on an electronic device you bring, or printing out the necessary pages of a watermarked PDF with your name on it.

CRB is the abbreviation for "Core Rule Book". Likewise, there are
APG: Advanced Player's Guide
UM: Ultimate Magic
UC: Ultimate Combat

However, until you get used to things, I suggest sticking with the Core Rulebook options for now. You can still do plenty of fun things with it and as you feel more comfortable, you can work your way to other books (and thus other options).

EDIT: First time you run across a goblin and try to aww him with cuteness bunny... don't be surprised if you'll need another bunny :P

thank you! :D. I am not stupid. I know better than to use adorableness on anything that isn't human XD. even the most hardened killer cannot resist cuteness. Also I am either having horrible luck digging through the spell lists or one of you is wrong and will not be getting cookies :/. cannot find familiar spells anywhere
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.
Still sounds fun. Unless I can't use it to suceed diplomacy/charisma checks and use it to distract my oppenents XD. Remind me to give you an extra cookie! I always have extra goodies. My guinea pig is now asleep on my arm. So if I suddenly stop using shift and periods thats the problem XD.

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

Curse you Paizo - I thought I got up to the pinnacle when I reached 150 and my fifth star. 200 is just around the corner but to apply all three I can't retire any time soon but need to set myself a new goal

250 - that is another year of GMing ...

I get that people have concerns over various portions of this, or may be disappointed due to various portions ... however, can we please just have a day or maybe two to be grateful that we got a kick-butt boon (regardless of what you think about it) and that there is an exclusive (no matter the form).

Sure. Would you prefer to have comments on these posts locked until 48 hours have passed, or just to not read them until after that? Because this is a discussion forum on the Internet, so those are your options.

Also, why is "expressing concerns" the same thing as "complaining?" Why can't I simply say, "I have these concerns, here are the results I see, let's talk about this" without people reading that as "DIE IN A FIRE BECAUSE YOU DIDN'T DO WHAT I WANTED" and telling me I don't have a right to express my thoughts?

(I know, I know, because it's a discussion forum on the Internet. It was a rhetorical question.)

Quote:
I shudder to think of what could happen when Mike and John get tired of trying to give us things and due to all the complaints decide that we don't need anything.
If you legitimately think they didn't expect there to be some concerns about this decision, I believe you are severely underestimating them.

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.

I said more burnout. Midnight Mauler has several endings and a variety of approaches. In Bonekeep you can either pick "east" or "west." Yes, you will get burned out running the same thing over and over, but things like roleplay and variation--which Bonekeep lacks--will put that off a bit.

*shrug* again GMs need to know their limitations.
