I have completely reported events for GenCon 2016 with four exceptions. Two card games and two RPG sessions could not be reported due to lack on scenario information or GM information.

RPG:
8/5/16 - The Wounded Wisp - no GM info
8/7/16 - Captives in Toil - Alan Mendoza - no GM number

ACG:
No date or scenario information for two sessions.

Please utilize the online reporting tool for incorrect sessions as I do not regularly check my PMs.

My personal opinion is that the campaign is pretty generous when it comes to replay (being that unlimited replay in part can cause the end of a campaign in general).

That being said, if you don't want to GM and don't want to play Core, you are in part causing your own issues by eliminating 75% of possible chronicle credit.

Or if one is *allowed* to GM and/or has the *time* to play/GM Core.

Do not presume that it is a 'want' situation, please.

That felt a bit offensive, based on personal experiences.

Probably not the intent.

Ummm, one of the first page replies was about not wanting to play Core, that was what I was referencing. If you have time to play, you have time to GM. It takes no more time than self-auditing your own character before a game day.

Two truths and a falsehood:

1. A VC got married to a VA at the con
2. HQ leads were rewarded with boons to play drow
3. I started my day drinking yesterday morning at 7 AM

I'll admit, I'm very gun-shy when it comes to making copies of signed documents. Ever since this I sign everything with either a magnetic marker/pen or colored ink.

Making copies of your chronicles allows you to have two sets of chronicle sheets. A GM crosses off a boon on one, you have the original without it being crossed off. Now I'm not saying you would do anything nefarious with those duplicate sheets, however, allowing copies of chronicles sets a precedent that would allow someone of dubious intent the means to cheat the system.

I do sympathize with your predicament. I have 5 binders filled with character sheets and chronicles. I organize them into binders based on level range and only take the binders for the event level range that I want to play.

I think it should be an ivory or white color to indicate the purity of the VO. Then as they rise in ranks, they become sick with dread (green) then angry at the world (red) and finally unlife takes them (yellow)

For those of you who came in late, one of the posts Chris Lambertz deleted was a response from the GM in-questions, as well as one from one of the players.

Taking it to the boards makes it more likely to devolve into a he-said/she-said type of situation that doesn't help the situation in the slightest.

How about a +1 bonus to Sense Motive when interacting with NPC members of your faction while in Tian Xia.

The evening Special has been sat (again, within 5 minutes of start time). We were able to sit all ticketed players and most of the non-ticketed players. One table-worth of non-ticketed players had to to be turned away due to lack of GMs, unfortunately, but they retired upstairs to try and start a pickup game of Society.

The prize table will be open to the the end of the slot and then re-open tomorrow morning.

In personal news, I was able to enjoy a second ACG table this morning with Painlord, played in a delve ran by James Jacobs (a personal dream/goal of mine), and played a PFS table with Bob Jonquet and the Pullman crew ran by Bobby Pepka. There was 3D terrain. It was high-tier 7-11 scenario. I played a paladin and killed lots of undead and evil outsiders :)

Very few player or GM complaints at this convention. Either people are afraid of us, or not much annoying stuff is taking place. I'll take it as a win either way.

Also Painlord, I appreciate you taking time from your high level ACG table to help me learn more tricks with the card game. Next time we play, I will be the Master.

My idea (tongue in cheek): The pins can be put through clothing or other fabric and can hang on your person to advertise your allegiance to one faction or another.

A wild Linda Zayas-Palmer appeared! She collected the rabid Mark Seifter and departed to parts unknown. We can only hope she means us no harm, and will protect us in the future from the Elder One known only as Compton.

Our fortunes have never looked bleaker. It is darkest before the dawn. Libations!

Some crazy guy just game up and threatened me. It went like this:

Crazy guy walks up to me.

Crazy guy: Do you have six fingers on your right hand

Me: I do

Crazy guy: My name is Painlord. You have not played the Adventure Card Game. Prepare to die.

Me: I'm going to play it tomorrow

Crazy guy: Okay. Never mind.

In time, the sting of change and character item loss will grow less and other, creative options will present themselves. I have multiple characters affected by these changes and was initially annoyed, but then I remembered that I've been through every PF errata since inception and like Walter says, more will come; some will be well received, some not. The PFS world will keep spinning. I don't even remember what I was annoyed with during the first erratas or FAQs.

For those of you who may not know, I am the RVC for the Northwest region and I will be helping to run HQ at PaizoCon as I have in the years past. I wanted to also make myself available to anyone from the NW region who may want to chat about PFS in their locality, especially non-VOs who may not have access to me on the VO forums. I'll be at HQ during PFS time and will be either there or at the hotel bar during down time. I can be easily recognized by my ginger goatee and pleasant demeanor :)

If it goes like last year, HQ will have your volunteer packet and rewards available Wednesday afternoon at the Sagamore ballroom. If you have a room reward, your name should be on the reservation and you will need to provide a credit card to cover incidentals that may be incurred. Some hotels in years past just needed one card from anyone in the room, other times they've needed each person to provide a card.

The nice thing this year is that we are at the hotel right across from the Sagamore, so basically just come across the covered bridge on the second floor and you're right there.

As a volunteer, the HQ Leads expect you to be ready and prepared to run your games 30 minutes prior to the slot start time. HQ will hand out water periodically throughout the slot but you should also have some filling, high calorie snacks and more water on hand should you need it. I love the Nature Valley bars and one box will last you through the convention.

There will be plenty of food trucks outside for meals and there should be ample time to hit them up as needed. There are also many good bars/pubs within walking distance should you have needs along those lines.

Also, please fill out your reporting sheets legibly and completely.

What happened to teamwork and being team players? This seems like the exact opposite.

I'd just like to say that I'm proud of the people in the community that not only assisted the OP in finding mechanical ways to re-fluff their character but also did so in a polite manner. I am also really appreciative of the way the OP received those messages and the mature way they went about responding. Kudos all around!

Cherry picking scenarios for their loot is frowned upon, in general. Best not to ask such questions on the messageboards...

Now, if you GM at a convention, I do know that the boon allows a free rebuild. You can easily GM a lot of conventions and have a store of rebuilds to use for future changes.

People would abuse the more liberal policy. Liberal policies in the past have had to be re-structured due to abuse in the short amount of time they were open. When a small amount of people abuse the system it ends up hurting everyone.

Painlord wants a post out of me:

As one of four HQ Leads this year, I wouldn't say I have impossible standards. BUT you've all sorely disappointed me and I hate you all. Good day!

Is this what you wanted, Painlord?

I can get behind this idea and also let us know when it gets updated. I was looking through it the other day to find the Allosaurus was suddenly no longer legal for play so I have a 7th level Nagaji Saurian Shaman with an illegal AC at the moment :P Will have to figure out something else pronto!

There was a time when GMing in PFS granted you no chronicle sheet and no stars and no opportunity to replay. Yet people still GM'd in those times, for no more reward than growing their community and helping grow conventions in their area.
