Please give Michael Bramnik a big round of applause!

In less than 2 years he has received his 5th star. Michael has been an integral part of the PFS in Bloomington Indiana. As well as fostering Indiana PFS, attending Who’s Yer Con, as well GenCon.

Most of Michael’s tables have very attentive players that really enjoy themselves, as most of the Bloomington players will testify.

Not only is extremely prepared, his involvement in PFS will have a long lasting effect, as those that are lucky enough to play with him, they will travel to across the country and will become active members/leaders of their future lodges.

If are around Bloomington Indiana, on May 11.
Come to the Siege of Bloomington, where we will be celebrating his 5th star as well as the parting of the class of 2014 Indiana University Pathfinders.

In my opinion this should be like a +4 or greater enhancement.

I think if you step back and imagine 35 % of players using enhancement, it would greatly effect the PFS community. As would likely effect scenario's being developed.

I am not sure why it was banned, but I would imagine it was to cheap for the effect.

Grapple them, get them near a corner, blind them, have them use big Paizo D20's so you can see them misfire. All of these are fun things to do to players.

Congratulations Brain Mooney on running his 100th game.

He GM'd a great 10-11 tier, Siege of Diamond City game today.

It was a fun tough game! 3 players died in a heroic last stand.

If you are ever near Valparaiso check out the PFS scene.

Take time to prep, the more you prep the easier a game session will go.

For instance let's say the scenario has some water in it, read swim skill, drowning and fighting under water.

Let's say its under ground figure out what the darkness rules are. How low light and darkness work as well as being blinded.

For Npc's look up feats and spells before hand.

Main thing have fun let others have fun. If an easy question comes up like how does grease work look it up. If it is a hard thing to figure out, bullrushing someone that is standing on banana peels and marbles. Throw out a quick penalaty and move on.

Good luck.

Hello everyone,

If you live in Indiana and play PFS I would like you to list here where you play at.

If you live near Indianapolis you can find our new warhorn.

Central Indiana Warhorn.

We are aiming to cross over to the new Version on the First.

In the past couple month we have had a Southern and Northern Warhorn.

Leslie has one already set up for the Northern Region

Mike has one set up for Laffeyette

Mr. Chapman has one for the Southern Region.

So if you can list areas you play in and if you would like someone to figure out how to list your games on warhorn.

Sound Off!!!

I have thought and still may play a cleric of Aroden or rather an Ex-Cleric.

Sure I couldn't heal or channel or do much cleric stuff but when Aroden does come back.. .. .. Season 5 ? ? ? I would ROCK!

Congrats Mike.

I rembering playing with mike during WYC 2011. It was a great game!.

The Lafeyette players and PFS players in Indiana as well as Paizo are very lucky to have him. Sages Shoppe is great place to game in NW Indiana.

He is a great GM, and using the coolest props I have scene.

He also shares his stuff with others, I had the great pleasure of using his Bonekeep at Origins, unfortunatley my players only got to see 4 rooms of it... It is great, I hope to construct something similar for a scenario in the future.

Just got back home, had a grandson while at Origins.

First well done Michael McNerny.

Some simple highlights of the con for me. Not in any order.

Playing at Kevin's table 2x !!! Both I will remeber "We'll come back for you" and playing with M. Costello M. McNerny and June S.

Running a Midnight Madness table and impregnating a player with a Xill.

Listening to Sheila Heidemark, it was hilarious. I wish I had recorded it on my phone.

Seeing Mr Costello getting his 5th star.

Getting to GM for Chris Mortika, who did some funny stuff with a frog.

I will make it next year it was a fun time.
HQ was well run and had allot of cool local support.

Congrats on all the hard work McNerny.

Good backstory. A power that he has that he can't come to terms with.

Plus as a dark hero it would be great at high tier if that one abilibity that cost him his paladinhood ended up saving a party.

He could still use the ability but it will cost him an attonement.

Tracy, my most memorable game with you was a We Be Goblins, after a really bad day when a customer stole a very expensive tool from me. I dropped in to Saltire and had an amazing game with you.

Hawkwen, glad to see you organizing games down south hope you have a chance to come up to Incon in July (hasn’t been announced).

Doug, I have the beating stick ready… Covered in duct tape (sadly like my paladin in a my last home game I have a -9 perception check and my party still wants me on watch). Cross eyed staring down the mountain looking for the Dragnmoon yeti.

Mike B (Tall Mike) good job organizing in Bloomington, hope to see you up in Indy this summer.

Kevin, I will definitely make room time to play at one of your tables at InCon.

Michael Y. Thanks allot had fun meeting you the first time at Tino’s game, when he let a couple PFS players crash your home game due to no shows.

Andrew thanks had fun playing with you at GenCon last year.

Thax thanks, glad you are catching up, a good friend and a home game member since the 80’s.

Michael Costello, I had a blast at Sages Con, by the second game my brain was turning to dust. Next time I will offer you a set of lucky dice.

Brian cool seeing you at Sages, look forward to seeing you at Incon.
June hopefully something changes and you can make it to GenCon this year.

Thea it took a couple months to catch up with you, I enjoy watching you during your 5th star game. Try to play a table of mine at Gencon… Please.!

Michael Cleland Thanks allot buddy. When you feel all excited, think back to the month of Darkness where you picked me to run every scenario that had darkness in it back... to back... to back. Good times (for a GM).

Everyone else thanks, allot. I am proud to join the 5 star ranks.

It is pretty cool to be a part of a large gaming community. It is pretty fulfilling to be a part of the awesome Indiana community.

On my todo list, convince my GF to play PFS, Run Dawn of the Scarlet Sun and kill her pre-gen. That surprisingly isn’t a joke.

Conventions can be with little cost.

A local convention in Indianapolis has 0$ cost for a badge as well as 0$ cost per gaming slot. Of course they also have a donation of 20$ that gives out a free shirt.

If you have 4 game stores that are willing you could have each sponsor something like a VFW or a Hotel Conference Center. A large public library usually has free rooms to book.

Some stores promote a Convention, by helping pay for room rental. If they also sell product they could possibly make money from the effort.

Local conventions are fun, it also is a great way to build a community.

Harsh?

I have seen some bad ones, I have also seen some good ones.

Sometimes it is 2 bad ones together sometimes 2 good ones together.

Words count a many 290+ plus are bad, seems like allot of the longer word count subission hurt themselves.

I think I have seen some really great 60-90 word count submissions.

Formatting, I pay almost 0% on formatting mistakes. Bold etc, isn't much of a concern compaired writing skill. Describing the item what not. I have seen errors but it usually doesn't change much, when comparing 2 items.

Qadira ***** Venture-Captain, Indiana—Indianapolis aka Red-Assassin

I think character introductions are very important. I have asked for a character introduction 99% of the games I have GM'd. I have heard some great introductions. I have seen great character concept art. Great use of custom Table Tents, as well as great back stories.

I have seen a couple, "Gruff level 6 dwarf". So tell me a little more about Gruff. "2 handed power attacker ac 19". Which is fine. Though some really clever introductions can get fellow players in a good mood or laughing. Some players like the couple minutes to really ham it up... bards...

I usually refrain from asking about classes or + modifiers. Depending on the scenario I may pass out an index card for this info as well as faction's.

As a GM for the first GC special, my group was not suited for the skill challenges presented. While the group was a great group. Very fine players they had a bad series of rolls.

This was at tier 8-9. So rules. I had no clue if if I should round up to 10-11 with 7 players. I heard was informed not to later was told to do a increase. I followed the 8-9 tier, I think the 10-11 would of resulted in a tpk.

There was echoing sentiment about the morale choices. Shiela had the PC's do. This was not focused soley at my table. I heard it through out GC. Every time she addressed players during introductions od scenarios.

I also think that GC specials should stop stop being competetive and be cooperative like the First GC special. Players have always been expected to cooperate and suddenly it is a team competion.

GC special part two.

I have to saw WOW. The writing in this was perhaps the best I have ever seen in a Paizo product. It is indead special. I am not sure how much of this was my GM, Tim Hitchcock or Kyle Baird but WOW.

The Puzzles and the enviroment was GREAT. The descritive text at the room the paneling the puzzles etc. Was the best I have ever seen as a player.

The combats. Felt deadly

Sadly the time issue was my main concern. At the GM table playing 10-11. It was not clear to me or I assume the table at all there was any sort of time limit or PC death. Or really that time limit was a concern.

We ended facing a Dragon, that was going to face its hellish demise to 2 divine worshippers of Erastil. 2 players at my table had yet to suffer any damage of any kind. The dragon head would sit eternally on the fire place above a manor house in Oppara.

As time was called the session ended. Some players stayed at the table while the GM turned for turn in to explain we failed with Key points.

Then returned later to explain we also were dead and had to have our bodies recovered and raised.

This single aspect of time versus TPK is seriously the most shortsided effect or writing that could ever possibly be wrote. Paizo should take a LONG hard look at this effect. This squarley lies I believe on Tim or Kyle but this circumsatnce should never EVER be placed in any product. At high tier believe it or not PC's have resources at the disposal to escape being stuck, spells or magical abilities to escape.

I know from different players this is feeled by several players. It is Deux Machina complex the should be removed from any and every published content.

For my own comfort.

I envision my Inquistor fighting back to back with Arbitor a fellow Inquistor fueled by divine grace by a fellow cleric of Erastil for eternity pushing holding back the endless tides of demons. I choose a perma death, option rather than. You die time has expired.

Mike report my charcter dead my character number 1500-2.
