Congrats to an awesome GM. James Well-Earned!

I had a great time at the Origins Game Fair. Had the opportunity to play, GM and be part of a great HQ team that included Mike McNerney, Mike Costello and Vincent Holiday (aka Brent the Babe, aka VC Shiela Hidemarch, aka Lady Arodeth) and many others.

Best of all I had the pleasure of spending time with many friends I've made over the years. It's always a blast to see them and share stories from Golarion and beyond. The folks from SCARAB came up and supported us as well with GMing. Shout out goes out to them. You guys rock! We also had more than one hundred new player society numbers given out. This was amazing growth of PFS and individuals interested in playing the Pathfinder RPG.

Gamers had the pleasure of playing Pathfinder Society along with Erik Mona and Tonya Woldridge at their tables!

Special thanks goes out to VC Mark Stratton for filing in as the Overseer GM and managing almost 20 tables of The Sky Key Solution at the last minute.

All in all I had a great time at Origins and I hope to see you all there next year.

There is a demonic looking mini from McFarlane toys. Malebogia or a demonic spawn would do.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I would recommend if your buying dragons go online buy the old McFarlane dragons and base them on a cardboard. Or the old mage knight dragons and giants.

For other monsters such as giants just buy toys there are so many that are available. As for more esoteric monsters. I dont recommend buying Huge or bigger minis unless you cant find them elsewhere as just toys. It will save you lot of money.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Yes no more goblins please, at least for a while.

I would like a standard adventure with the core classes and core races as a true intro to the game. A way to introduce new players to the game.

With that being said, I see more and more of the Free RPG players are regular gamers who are just looking forward to participate in the newest offerings.

Tonya Woldridge - announced Pathfinder Academy. A program for young pathfinders that will be going to all locations to assist local coordinators in order to help children in playing and understanding PFS and will help bridge the gap and ease younger members into full society play.

***** Regional Venture-Coordinator, Northeast aka Shivok

Horror Adventures....looking at you hive sickness.

***** Regional Venture-Coordinator, Northeast aka Shivok

So far enjoying myself GM'd three tabela of 7-14 Let Bygone Be. Had a great time with most of those players. Some great roleplaying and teamwork.

Met the usual cast of Pathfinders, and had an opportunity to chat with the lovely Infernal Magestrix Abrogail II of House Thrune.

Looking forward to tonight's banquet.

***** Regional Venture-Coordinator, Northeast aka Shivok

Congrats to all of the 5 star GM's.

The achievement is not easy and involves hundreds of hour given to support PFS.

Thanks for all you do.

***** Regional Venture-Coordinator, Northeast aka Shivok

Eric congratulations on this great milestone! Thanks so much for supporting Society play in your area.

I hope you continue the march forward toward your 5th star!

I hope this is the start of each AP eventually getting a hardcover edition. I am a subscriber and I will still pay to get a hardcover edition for all the APs. It is just far more convenient when running a game to have it one book.

I guarantee you it is not, unless we use a very liberal definition of "eventually".

At best, we can expect one of these every five years, and then only for a very limited selection of APs. The 3.5 ones are the most likely, and they've already done the two popular ones. (The only PFRPG one that has any groundswell of support is Kingmaker.)

Sorry to be such a spoilsport, but I'd rather keep people from getting their hopes up.

I hope kingmaker doesnt get a hardcover, I just want another Kingmaker-esque AP based in Taldor and Casmaron.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Nice! I'm looking forward to this. Definitely running this as my next AP.

September is not too far off.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Sometimes these finds take the air out what would have been a sweet announcement. CotCT is a great AP. The fact that is coming back is great I guess I will wait for the official announcement to ask some questions regading the AP.

@Oceanshieldwolf - send me a PM with your address and I will mail you a a hardcover Core book and some modules I have.

***** Regional Venture-Coordinator, Northeast aka Shivok

Martin,

Your right! That's what I get for trying to remember scenarios played years ago!

spoiler:
He was aberrant. The Aucturn Enigma scroll might be just the thing that's needed to fully open the portal to the Dark Tapestry. The sorcerer got creatures from Aucturn going.

I'm thinking it might be a year of the planes. Between the endings oof Thralls of the Shattered God, Fires of Karamoss and Blakros Connection, and an upcoming setting book on the elemental planes, I'm seeing pointers in that direction.

Yeop I agree, a sense something Otherworldly coming...maybe someone called in favors or allies(i.e. planar or something in between the stars, Leng, Psychic Horrors from the unknown dimension).

I recall an old Blakros scenario with an alien in a can in the basement. Nuff said about that one!

I'm wondering if the members of the decemvirate will be personally giving my character his briefing. Cause I know a few of their identities. Would be a nice touch for an epic cause...

Mathnerd,

PFS has evolved since 2012 with positive changes in many areas.

If you are still stuck in the mentality that what happened years ago still holds true today then the issue is not PFS.

I encourage you to give it another try.

***** Regional Venture-Coordinator, Northeast aka Shivok

Feliz Cumpleanos John!

Actually, yellow Tengu are a big one to consider.

As I stated before, there is no legal source for dye.
However, it's not uncommon for people to have characters with outlandish hair colors in PFS and for such things to be simply hand waived.
The same goes for armor and clothing: there's no upcharge in an item's price for it's color.
It's just assumed that you can get whatever color you desire.

Now, feathers can be dyed.
If a Taldan can have red hair (while by the books they do not), then they must be coloring their hair.
What is to prevent a tengu from bleaching and dying their feathers?

Oooh I just might use my boon to make the first ever Golarion Chickenhawk...with green feathers.....tengu im no tengu im a chickenhawk and I aint afraid of nutin'

Yeah, it was hard enough finding another person with that boon, to choose the effect, when they were less than a year old...
I still haven't had a good chance to use mine, actually.

Yeah I have been waiting for a while to use it on my elf, but he's 6th level now so I will have to wait some more.

It could be playing again as Aspis agents that would be awesome!

Don't forget the Pathfinder Unchained classes as well.

Definitely would need two books, but as these are primarily GM books the demand would not be as great.

***** Regional Venture-Coordinator, Northeast aka Shivok

Me too!

Tried downloading again for like the 15th time. Sill nothing, this is completely ridiculous and very poor planning from the largest RPG company!

Congrats on the baby Rob, may she grow up to be a pathfinder too!

Enjoy the retirement, hope to see you at future cons!

Server issues are still here. Products are stuck on personalizing.

The funny thing is that when oil prices go down the consumer doesnt see a benefit immediately, if ever. But when the prices go up every gas station is raising their prices on gas thats been in their tanks for days...

It's all a gimmick.

The prices for minis are overpriced because of the lack of competition.
Wizkids has the market pretty much cornered and can charge what they think consumers are willing to pay. 39.99 for 6 30mm minis is crazy, especially because unlike indie mini creators these guys mass produce and should be cheaper.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I'll reiterate what I asked for before is a Kingmaker-esque AP centered on Taldor after Strange Aeons.

A hardback Campaign guide on Casmaron encompassing Kelesh, maybe Vudra, Iobaria and the other kingdoms on the eastern side of Casmaron that are closest to Tian-Xia. (This helps anchoring sourcebooks with reasons for crunch)

No a hit roll is not required.

I think there is a days inn, Laquinta, quality inn, hampton inn, all within 500ft or so from the doubletree. look on google maps and youll see the distance.

Hmmm....

#1. Pathfinder Reloaded (aka 2.0)

#2. Pathfinder Movie/Cartoon Consultant

#3. Ancient Empires of Casmaron (Hardcover Sourcebook)

When/If he gets back in the AP developer's chair:

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

NE Vigilante is my guess.

Clerics of Gorum would have no problems as Gorum is CN. You however are chaotic good and that may be where the problem lies.

Great Job John!

Thanks for speeding this through and adding the retro compromise!

That was real classy!

***** Regional Venture-Coordinator, Northeast aka Shivok

It may be a wee bit too good, I thought humans might be OP as well, given other possible class choices and he could be the guy with Darkvision, Low-light, and two skill of his choice especially as a sorcerer.

***** Regional Venture-Coordinator, Northeast aka Shivok

Can we perhaps bounce the traits with the race creation stuff in the ARG?

We might be able to see if they're overpowered or not that way.

***** Regional Venture-Coordinator, Northeast aka Shivok

IMO one of the best story arcs in PFs. enjoy it. I had a great time with it.

***** Regional Venture-Coordinator, Northeast aka Shivok

I can see The line of reasoning the character in question could become Azlanti, but after playing that scenario he could never play any others as Azlanti is not a legal playable race.

It would be a cool chronicle sheet for a character ending.

***** Regional Venture-Coordinator, Northeast aka Shivok

2013 was a really bad year for PFS due to various issues we don't need to elaborate on.

2014 was non-existent for PFS as well

For 2015 this is what GM's got in an email.

Pathfinder Returns to Winter Fantasy!
Card Games and Pathfinder Society Galore
Winter Fantasy is your one-stop shop for winter gaming, and we're proud to announce that Pathfinder games are back again in 2016!

With adventures for the beloved Pathfinder Society, as well as the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, Paizo fans will find a little bit of everything at the show! We'll have more details on exactly what adventures are available soon. We'll also see the launch of the Season of the Runelords campaign. Play scenarios as standalone games or join in the Adventure Card Guild Organized Play campaign.

In addition to running these events, we're working to line up some special guests for Paizo fans as well. More details will be announced soon!

I'm not sure if a local VO will be handling this or if Dave has one of his guys doing it again.

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).
