We ran an event to encourage people to GM based on all the scenarios that mention solo pathfinders that are sent into the field.
We selected two scenarios (Immortal Conundrum and Golemworks Incident) and sent half our player home with one and the other half home with the other to prepare them. The next week players with separate scenarios were paired and ran the scenario for a character 3-4 levels higher than tier.
I the event was a success. People enjoyed seeing their experienced Pathfinders lording their skills over weaker opponents, several people that hadn't GMed before mentioned that they liked getting some experience at it in a low pressure environment, and as organizers we could spot some people that we really wanted to get to GM. In the 1 on 1 setting the scenarios ran 1.5 to 2.5 hours so both parties could run in one normal session. Players did not receive any rewards as this is a non-sanctioned format, but were excited at the end of the night and traded stories of how they handed the various encounters.
