Well ... maybe I should make an arcane caster then!

So, right now I am thinking Arcanist ... but we'll see what I come up with. Hmmm, I do have a necromancer I created for non-PFS but the game never actually happened. Will check him out.

Grand Lodge

Geeh... sorry, just remembered this thread ... I hate it when I'm not dotted in gameplay so it's not showing in my campaigns! I Miss things.

I have a level 3 inquisitor, but every one else seems to be 1-2 so I also have a level 1 inquisitor, level 1 lore-warden, or a level 1 brawler ...

Grand Lodge

Hello all! So, who's heading in to number two?

Pali, Oracle, barbarian, Bard, Ninja?

What levels?

Picking my character ...

Grand Lodge

Anyone have anything against Gunslingers? Considering my 1xp sulphur gunslinger. Or maybe someone fresh. Just got my ACG in ... Also have a 1xp brawler ...

Not sure how many responses you are expecting but it's gonna be a hell of a lota work processing/analyzing all the data from so many open ended questions.

Just through all from a question in Wordle.

Repeated words are larger (can dump common words like the) gives an interesting impression of what is important. (For instance you can see what issues are big in the country if you through the state of the union address in it ...)

I would say distance won't matter. What, another 5 minutes TOPS travel from room to games (probably more like 1 minute). And again, my most recent experience was that my Paizo neighbors gamed until the whee hours. (Which is fine by me, that's what we're there for, but it was hard on my sleep.) So, maybe being far away has sleep advantages!

Hey i'm new to pathfinder and really want to go to this. can anyone get me the info on where it is and how much is it to get in?

SeaTac Double tree

Ticket last year was $50 for three days, the next one is 4 days, so maybe a price change?

Banquet is $25 (food is fine and it's enjoyable to hear the news.)

Highly recommend the whole con.

Done. I love the opportunity to PbP (and PFS). Get's me playing a lot more than I get a chance to in RL.

And before anyone says "hire more people", realize that there are open job postings.
Not to suggest that I know about Paizo's specific hiring strategies, but there is a big difference between hanging the proverbial "now hiring" sign and aggressively recruiting targeted candidates to fill a particular role in your company.
I'd have considered applying if it was 3-5 years C#, with Java as a plus, instead of the other way around.

It's still up there ... apply. What have you got to lose. Code is code.

Ahhh... I'm getting $119 when I search for "two adults" and $109 when I search for one adult.

Interesting ... I did one adult and 1 kid, two queen beds, funny the adult cost an extra $10 ... must flush more or something!

I also find it interesting that the Paizo Rate is effectively $15 more (given that I get WiFi ...). The woman on the phone really encouraged me to get Paizo block so I'm "close to the convention" and with fellow Paizo's, and get the amenities offered to that block (which has never been anything more than a room, so ...)

Looks like the link did not survive ... $109 special offer is the first entry when you search the dates on the hotel site.

Grand Lodge

$109 WITH included Wifi ($10/day value). Says parking is included too, but then later it's not. Paizo rate is what you were quoted.

I hope I don't get anyone in trouble but room rates are now available.

I called, and while they knew about the PaizoCon group, the rates were higher than you can see online right now, significantly when you consider the Paizo offer did not include internet and the online rate did.

I booked the non-Paizo block room as it was cheaper, and not in the PaizoBlock. While I'm all for late night gaming for all, it will be easier for me to sleep if I'm not next door to it! This year my neighbors were having raucous gaming-fun till the whee hours. :)

@gossamar4: didn't you participate in one of the Confirmation runs I did last month?

@Deane, everyone: I'm sorry to see is not quite functioning the way it should. With 50+ people editing the thing, something is bound to go wrong at some point. I care deeply, and I've been thinking about how to improve things. I've got several alternatives in mind:

- Do nothing: the cheapest in terms of effort for me, but current vulnerabilities will stay. Things have been kind of messy lately, and the waiting list is turning out to be long, which also leads to people losing interest.

- Do a Flaxseed-style sign-up list. I create a list of game that I will be (or could be) running in the near future, and people can sign up. The waiting list would effectively be replaced by a two-week-or-so planning ahead of scenarios. Other GMs are already doing this (in the aforementioned Flaxseed lodge). It would be a good way to have centralised recruitment, so for players it's still better than hunting the recruitment boards for games.

- Close the list for editing, and update everything myself: would eliminate a lot of troubles, but I would have no more time to run games :(

- Code up a fancy web app. I've been toying with this idea, but I'm not sure if it would catch on.

I'm very much attracted to option #2, so that might be where it's headed...

You could do a google form that people fill out. The form results go to a spreadsheet. You could then share the spread sheet for viewing only. This allows people to enter their info (through the form) and see it on the spreadsheet (but not edit it there).

Forms are very easy.

Other GMs could be given editing ability too.

Is "Robotics" for instance one skill giving you all the sub categories, or do you need to take each skills "Activate/Deactivate, Alter Functions, Alter Mission, etc"

A good start would be to search amazon for "chessex pirate card". There are a bunch of different versions. Ebay would likely have them too.

What are you thoughts on the mentalist profession?

It's not a direct roll ... for instance your roll of a 10 actually equals a 30/30

Page 28 of the basic rules (Alpha Dawn book)

So you're
STR/STA : 30/30
DEX/RS : 55/55
INT/LOG: 55/55
PER/LDR: 55/55

01-10 = 30 Feeble

Grand Lodge

I think you only roll four times so str/sta would be the same ... but then you can move up to 10 points from one to the other ... so you might start with 50/50 but could end up with 40/60 (And racial modifiers effect it too of course.)

Is this pbp? I would be interested.

I just went through a bunch of my old RPG stuff and found Star Frontiers. If accepted I will try to refresh my memory. All I ever saw/had was the core boxed set.

Yeah ... "Unique players" would be interesting too.

Wish I could be there ... I love con play!

Edit: You know what would be cool ... get Roll20 and/or D20Pro to sponsor 2+ tables worth of virtual players. I'd love to get in on the action from afar. Especially for the special.

The VTT co's would get to show their product. People that don't get to go to cons would get a chance for some con play, etc ..

The main thing that would draw me to GameSpace from Roll20 (which I love), is all the maps and graphics for an AP packaged and ready to go.

What Paizo should do is just focus on selling these packages for use in the existing systems such as Roll20, D20Pro, RealmWorks, etc.

For instance, I buy the Rise of the Runelords VTT package from paizo and I get all maps, and images ready for loading into Roll20. Already sized correctly, already with dynamic lighting added, images of NPCs and handouts.

This way Paizo is no-longer trying to develop such a complex/resource intensive project. They just need to work with the other developers (Roll20, D20Pro) to develop a path from a Paizo site purchase, to loading the data into the specific system. They also need to size the graphics and add things like dynamic lighting, but that's no big deal.

I kickstarted two crowdforger buddies so the whole family could play so I need to come up with four computers that can handle it!

I'm not worried about my wife/my MacBook Pros (2012 and 2013 Retina) ... but the kids have something like 2007 or 2008 hand-me-down MacBook Pros (3,1). Some research shows they can be upgraded to Maverick, so maybe!

Anxiously awaiting early access! Guess I should start trying to get Windows 7 on all of these.

I would much prefer a TV Series as you can get so much deeper into story and character development. I said movie though as TV series are too much at the whimsy of crotchety-old-suits. I guess the same can be said for movies.

Oh, in my list I forgot the audio-plays!

An anime is pretty doable.

As a subscriber you get the PDF when the book is shipped. This normally means that subscribers get early access, but sometimes with how shipping is combined (and just dealing with the large amount of shipments, especially around GenCon) it might take a bit longer.

I use roll20 for face-to-face games. I project the maps on tables and use the dynamic lighting features of roll20. I still use miniatures on the map .. cuz I like miniatures.

Ok, Paizo has an RPG, and have expanded into a board/card game, they have miniatures and toys, novels, comics, and we're looking at an MMO, a CRPG, and definitely a tablet app for the card game.

So when will we see licensing for a movie?

My big question is about the mechanics. From what I understand they won't be able to adapt PFRPG rules because the OGL doesn't cover that. So they'll have to come up with a new set of RPG rules for these games. I hope they can keep the crunchy feeling of Pathfinder.

I don't think I would want to see a turn based CRPG if it did not use the existing Pathfinder rules. I guess depending on how close it can be ...
