Is Eldritch Heritage an option?

I finished going through all the missing sessions to make sure there were no duplicates and was able to get most everything fixed.

"Rage" the Class Feature is altered by the Mad Dog archetype. A delay is still an alteration of the class feature.

I'm getting through the backlog of requests in the order that they were received with preference given to missing GM credits. However, I have to search through the GenCon reported scenarios to make sure that the session wasn't already reported with typos. I'm not going to fix one problem and create one more fix down the road with duplicate reporting. So yes, this takes time. I am responding to individual emails when they are fixed.

Hi Todd!

I played 8-01 Portent's Peril at 2pm Saturday and it's not showing up in my scenarios played. My character was Dandelion Happypants and the PFS number is 123456-7.

I can't make out the GM's signature but her PFS number is 89012. We all got two prestige.

Thanks for all the hard work you are doing even after GenCon is over!
-John Smith

Other useful information is the PFS numbers of the other players at the table (if you know them).

If you are a GM and don't know any of the players' PFS numbers, really the only information you can give is time, scenario, and your PFS number.

When I first reported a convention myself I was shocked at how illegible so many people's PFS numbers were. For almost every person who e-mailed me to correct it, the problem was a digit or two that we took our best guess at but were wrong.

In addition, if GMs know when they turned in their sheet, that can help too, as well as the name that would be on their reporting sheet.

Thanks TOZ

Do not email customer service. They have no way of finding the session sheets as I have them all. Please look at the thread I posted for instructions :-)

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.

My opinion is that most of these instances will be the GMs call however I do firmly believe that the player would control both the PC and the Drake and that the Drake should be able to UMD. Sorry it's not more specific :-/

Quick FYI, while most sessions are reported, there is about a slot and a half worth of reporting sheets left. If you don't see your session reported after a week, feel free to contact me.

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)

I would say you could start with having peg legs by spending a portion of beginning gold for them, but not having stumps. The reason being that you at least have mobility vs not having any form of movement.

Dark Archive ***** Regional Venture-Coordinator, Midwest

To put it in perspective, there was a decent amount of time where PFS GMs received nothing for GMing other than the goodwill for helping the local community. This was before the VO group was formed so local communities weren't receiving any scenarios for free, either. I don't recall many complaints during this time about rewards either, that all came much later :P

This was actually similar to a boon idea I proposed a couple of months ago, to give a character access to a piece of equipment from a different character's chronicle sheet...

As the RVC in question for the region, I just wanted to let people know that it's being handled by local VOs in private and that at this point, I'm considering the forum portion of this matter closed. If staff wants to lock it, that's fine, if not, no worries, but I probably won't be following the discussion any further :P

I do sort of regret that the GMs post got deleted, as I had thought it was polite and had started to address the matter. Oh well!

Dark Archive ***** Regional Venture-Coordinator, Midwest

If you create an event without a number of sessions, the link to create session sheets sometimes doesn't appear.

Dark Archive ***** Regional Venture-Coordinator, Midwest

In a season 1 scenario my character turned an orc into a frog. Made the will save. My character just said they put it in a cage and the GM wrote it on the scenario sheet and we left it at that. Hasn't really come up again and I just tell the story without any mechanical benefit. If all you want to do is say you did it, and have it as proof of a story, I don't see the harm of it. If you kept it out, tried to have it be present during fights, etc, it's more problematic.

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.

Dark Archive ***** Regional Venture-Coordinator, Midwest

Under your sessions you should be able to report the error over the website. That should be the fix for the online portion of the problem. For your actual character sheet, I would talk to your local venture officer, apprise them of the situation and work with them to fix the issue.

The Not So Good
[list]
  • PFS Mustering in the hallway was messy. We had the most populous games (Tiers 1-5) at the very front, creating a big crowd you had to work through to get to the other tiers. This also created confusion as many different players from many scenarios had to sort themselves within a small space. I like this model for things like the Specials because it is definitely ideal to get folks to self-marshal into tables of 6 before entry, but not for regular scenarios. While we did have 5 hour slots, I almost never sat down at my table before start time because of this organizing method, meaning our game didn't really get going in earnest until after the listed start time. This also meant a lot of the tables for the special ran up against their time slot.
  • To address this portion, we started mustering at 10-15 minutes before the listed start time and had all the ticketed players seated within minutes of the start time. I'm not sure that we did it that quickly last year, but I could be wrong.

    Grouping up prior to sending to tables saves time in the long run. When you send ones and twos to different game tables, you run the risk of a full table of ticketed players showing up wanting to play together. You then have to leave the muster area, go to the tables and re-arrange and come back. It's just a more efficient way of mustering to prevent issues.

    No problem! I was glad to work with everyone out there. I may have missed it in the blog but I just shifted over to RVC of the Midwest. Just a split of a region and picking some areas up closer to home.

    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.

    So a Paizo employee, that may or may not be the Editor-In-Chief, informed us at PFS HQ that there is a company doing a mash-up of American Gladiator mixed with Pathfinder that runs about an hour long up in the Cascade room. It is called The Gauntlet. Anyone that wasn't able to get into a pickup game in the afternoon may enjoy the experience.
