Adventure Path #121: Sovereign's Fall
(Part 1 of the Taldor AP: The Tarnished Scepter) A mix of high stakes politics, with a mix of Kingmaker, a dash of chivalry

Their statement pretty much says that the majority of their gamers communicate via 3rd party sites rather than on their forums.

Not sure if that's true.

An area where like minded gamer who play the same game system can share their ideas and products to foster more gaming is a good thing. Although the vast majority of gamers don't use the forums much. Even here. Probably like 10% (wild guess).

It could of been just an honest mistake and he misplaced the final encounter.

I would change an encounter location if players actions have dramatically changed it. (i.e. if the encounter occurred in a tavern and the BBG was going to show up, but the PC's burned it to the ground so the bad guy shows up in the street instead) The only time it would be an issue is if there were environmental factors built into the encounter and even then you could replicate most things elsewhere.

Mike you will be missed.

As a fellow brother in blue and a brother in arms your leadership style simply wont be replicated. You expanded PFS greatly and even got me to join the VO corps. You've held the line on the absurd and compromised when needed. You guided a steady ship in PFS and mentored a great many players and GM's alike.

Remember that the lack of an official title doesn't stop the camaraderie and friendship you've gotten over the years, So I still hope to see you again at conventions to share a game, a story, or better yet a drink or two with you.

Farewell and may you find happiness in everything you do.

One sad goblin,

June

Wow those two original scenarios sound GREAT! Imagine if we could do that for other cons/areas and the scenarios became PFS/PACG Legal.

Thanks for the list Andrew, what was Grand Convocation 4712? A quick search and I couldn't find anything meaningful on it.

It was an AWESOME experience, especially if you rp'd with the Oracle. ;) jk

It was a PaizoCon 12' only event, that included combat, skill challenges and Rp only encounters.

It is with deepest regrets that I announce the passing of Richard Lighthiser, a lifelong gamer and Pathfinder enthusiast today at approximately 4pm. Up until a month ago Richard was the Venture-Lieutenant for Northern New Jersey. He earned his 5th star in April of this year and did an amazing job at running games and juggling life.

Gaming was one of the things that kept him going even in his toughest days. to him it was just not a hobby but a passion, one that he used to bring joy, fun and excitement to all who gamed at his tables. He traveled to conventions near and distant to get a chance to drop into the fantasy world we all are fond of and immerse himself and his friends in tales of wonder and excitement.

Rick was one of those players who always found the positive in everything, even when things looked bleak. He was the mediator when gamers would have their fits with each other over some real or imagined slight. Purely, he was someone who you always wanted at your table, always ready to play and eager to help others achieve the most out of an adventure.

Even in his waning days Rick continued to fight on and enjoyed himself by playing a home game every other Sunday, and two online adventure paths during the weekdays. Tomorrow, he would have played Part 4 of The Eyes of Ten series and retired his character Chandler of Sarenrae. As his GM I was looking forward to see what reward he would get in the finale.

Even today, Rick had his gaming sheets right on his gaming table ready for tomorrow's adventure. His wife Sarah, said "Rick would have wanted you to finish the game". So she allowed us to take his character sheet and give him the proper send-off that any great gamer should have. Tomorrow, Rick's going to get a chance to finish the game like he would have liked.

Rick will be missed by his friends and family, but we all know that he would not want us to be sad in this moment. He would of liked that we celebrate his life, his love and his passion, and he would've wanted us to live life to the fullest.

I valued Rick not only for his positive attitude, loyalty, and perseverance, but mainly because he was my friend.

You will be missed Rick.

Really disappointed this was included.

I have to ask you this then?

Does the existence of Cure Disease trivialize the real world medical crosses? The legendary epidemics of polio, malaria, smallpox, and the Black Plague?

Does the existence of the Heal spell trivialize the real world problems of insanity, paralysis blindness, deafness and the other issues it cures? Does the very existence of Paladins trivialize disease and suffering they cause?

Or is it possible to remember that this game isn't meant to be a pattern for how we deal with our real world lives? That down to earth it's primary purpose is some harmless escapist fun? And that the real world issues of LGBT go beyond mere sex/gender binaries? That there are such issues that no Elixir can bypass?

You make some valid points, I guess we'll see if it ever becomes an issue.

I think its safe to say when the campaign leadership gets back the AR may get some rewording into it.

I guess it may be just my luck, but every GM i have ever had for a Non-PFS game has limited what PC races I can play more stringently then PFS. In fact most have limited it to just Core Races.

PFS is the most open to other races game I have ever played.

Me too. And I'm like that when I GM non PFS as well

I'd like to see no more factions within the pathfinder society...and more factions/organizations available outside of the society...

If he truly had become a paladin, and there's nothing in the story to suggest otherwise, then he would indeed have been redeemed - one of Sarenrae's chief principles. Zadim could then report back to his superiors and tell them that "Gordreth the Butcher" is no more and still be telling the truth (from the description he seems to be able to parse his words efficiently).

Whether he had actually killed the old man doesn't matter in that regard, although he (Gordreth/Jevantus) could certainly have offered himself up as a final atonement. Letting him live wouldn't "violate" his mission either, though.

You might have something here. He could easilt report to this master that Gordreth the butcher is dead, he was killed by Jevantus, Paladin of Sarenrae.

I think there are less fetchlings than goblins in PFS.
