I would also suggest networking with various Venture Officers, who can give you good advice on starting up a new venue.

As an active PFS judge and player, I think that building a core group of GMs and players will help. These people can serve as resources for new players and show them the ropes.

Liberty's Edge ***

I would work with the store owners, set up an advance schedule and be prepared to see things grow slowly. See if you can recruit a fellow GM to help in case you get more than seven players.

Liberty's Edge ***

I would presume that the Aspis Consortium and/or the Serpentfolk would try to recruit PFS enemies. I would presume that the Aspis Consortium would fear the rise of the Pathfinder Society as an influence in the world after events in Mendev and in Numeria. If the Serpentfolk are involved they could have the Aspis Consortium knowingly or unwittingly help their goals. I look forward to the new season.

I have been swamped, but I can e-mail out some copies tomorrow night. So, if anyone is interested, jus tpost here.

Liberty's Edge

I think that this would help. Also, if we could have more events listed by state, this could help. Or perhaps it could be divided into regions. A map might be a good idea as well.

Liberty's Edge

I use the violates copyright or other infringement as spam posts are generally business related.

Where is Buffy Summers when you need her to put those stakes to good use?

The spam is now making its way down to the PFS forums.

Just be alert and keep flagging.

Oops, I should have put 6-05 for Slave Ships of Absalom.

We only have one GM, so any GMs from Northwest Indiana or Chicagoland would be quite welcome in case we have more than seven players.

PFS returns to Mythic Monster Gaming, 9501 Indianapolis Boulevard, Highland, IN on Sunday, May 31st at 1 PM. At noon, I will be at the shop to help with character creation and set up for the game.

I plan to run Slave Ships of Absalom (6-15) for Tiers 1-5.

Liberty's Edge ***

At Lightspeed Hobbies, this Thursday at 5:30 PM Central, we will offer the following events.

Perils of the Pirate Pact, (0-17) for Tiers 1-7
Scions of the Sky Key, Part 3 (6-16) for Tiers 1-5

I plan to run Cairn of Shadows (5-23) for Tiers 5-9. However, if we do not have enough people with characters of that level, I will run Black Waters (0-6) for Tiers 1-5. (I just ran the adventure over at Mythic Monster Gaming.)

I flagged three more.

Let's not respond to the threads with the spmm, just flag them. I just list it as copyright violation.

Thank you, Lucas!! I am going to have to download everything and lead a few people to this thread.

Liberty's Edge ***

I am running a PFS event tomorrow. I will have copies of the iconics with me, all of which are legal for play in PFS. (I am bringing my PDF with me in case anyone wants to make a summoner.)

Also, is there any possibility that any other iconics will be updated to Pathfinder Unchained classes or that there might be new iconics to represent those classes? (I wonder if one of the reasons that there are no currently legal APG pre-gens is that APG summoners such as Balazar proved to be problematic.)

So, will we see any iconics updated to Pathfinder Unchained? Or will new iconics representing those classes appear? Will Balazar reappear as a Pathfinder Unchained Summoner and the other APG pre-gens that vanished return?

I flagged two threads before coming to this forum and then found a third one to flag here.

As I did not have enough people for PFS at PFS returns to Mythic Monster Gaming, 9501 Indianapolis Boulevard, Highland, IN for a legal table last sunday, we are trying again for this Sunday, May 3rd at 1 PM.

I plan to run Black Waters (0-06) for levels 1-5. I am trying to find a second GM who is ready to run a low-level module.

Liberty's Edge ***

I will plan on running Black Waters on May 3rd as we did not have enough people today for a legal table. I will see if I can find an additional GM to run another mod. I would hope to have enough people for at least one table.

For the near future, I see PFS at Mythic Monster Gaming running low-level mods from a variety of seasons. This location is fairly close to Chicago's South and Southwest Sides and the South and Southwest Suburbs as well as Northwest Indiana.

Liberty's Edge ***

I make a point to buy a few things from local gaming stores but I think that more people need to do so. Also, I try to be supportive of other events. (For example, Lightspeed Hobbies in Portage IN will participate in Free Comic Book Day next Saturday, so I will be there.)

PFS NEEDS local venues. So, trying to offer some support to store owners is a good idea.

PFS returns to Mythic Monster Gaming, 9501 Indianapolis Boulevard, Highland, IN on Sunday from 1 PM to 7 PM.

I plan to run Black Waters (0-06) for levels 1-5 and another GM plans to make it to run 5-01 The Glass River Rescue for levels 1-5.

I look forward to getting this book soon.

Liberty's Edge

Just flag it. I tend to use the violates copywrite option as I would suspect that is appropriate.

Liberty's Edge

Got another one. I am only an hour or so from the Fermi Supercollider. Maybe I can see if we can get Paizo a little antimatter to stop the spammers. ;)

Liberty's Edge

I just flagged two. Can we nuke them from high orbit, just to be sure?

I just flagged a spammer.

It is a shame that we can't see some legal action.

Congratulations, Dominick!!! Thanks for helping PS be a success.

Liberty's Edge

While it is PFS, the Silverhex Chronicles and the Confirmation are designed for 1st level characters. I ran the Confirmation and it is a pretty good adventure for new characters.

Liberty's Edge ***

You might want to check out this page, as there are lots of games in New England: The Pathfinder Society New England Grand Lodge There are links to venture officers, calendars, stores and other great information.

Liberty's Edge ***

Congratulations, Ray!!!

Liberty's Edge ***

Scarey, we will have one other event going. My hope is that we get a good turnout with both the Silverhex Chronicles and the Confirmation.

Very nicely said William Ronald.

Thanks. I came across a story about a caller to an Indianapolis radio station who said that he was a restaurant owner and already has discriminated against LGBT people.

Let me quote from the story and the caller.

Quote:

“I grew up Christian, and I believe in man and woman, Adam and Even not Adam and Steve,” he went on. “If a couple comes into my restaurant and makes other people leave my place of business, then I’m losing more money from the people leaving than coming in.”

He told the radio hosts that he has already turned away people who seemed gay to him, but he made up a reason rather than tell them the truth.

“I have discriminated.I have said something was broken in the kitchen and said I couldn’t serve them,” Ryan said. “I told them that the fan was broken and they left.”

I have gamed with Christian gamers, Jewish gamerss, Wiccan gamers, Hispanic gamers, African American gamers, Asian gamers, and people from many parts of the political spectrum. I have participated in play by post games with people in different countries. My rule at the gaming table and in my broader life is to treat everyone with respect, even if I disagree with them on some issues. (it is possible to lose my respect, but I try to begin with respect.) One of my problem with this law is that it seems to make people feel unwelcome and second-class citizens.

In the case of the man claiming to be a restaurant owner, I must ask would he be willing to put up with a surgeon who would not operate on him because he disagreed with his religious or political views? I believe that the only way my rights can be guaranteed in a free society is to guarantee the rights of others. We can, and I believe should be, the mutual guarantors of each others rights and dignity. Ultimately, I believe what unites us as human beings is more powerful and important than what divides us.

As a gamer and a resident of Northwest Indiana (which I have joked should see about seceding to Illinois), I oppose the law.

A friend of mine passed last year at age 93. He was a World War II veteran and was a millionaire by his mid-30s. Yet there were places not open to him because he was also a Jew. I would face the same discrimination if such laws and standards were still in place.

The market is useful for many things, but it did not solve the lack of civil rights for many Americans. As someone who has faced the occasional bigoted comment, I can't justify a law that seems to cloak the wish to discriminate against others based on one's beliefs. Morally, I cannot let others be discriminated against as part of my religious and ethical beliefs. There are still some people in this country who will seek to deny others the same rights and dignity they ask for themselves by justifying such behavior through their faith, or with other reasons. (Fortunately, it seems that bigotry is in decline.)

Sadly, I have seen this thread degenerate into people throwing stereotypes at each other. I would hope that we can avoid such posts because I believe that this thread should remain open.

Liberty's Edge ***

Congratulations, Carl!!

Liberty's Edge

I hoped to see them but there is enough for me to use for PFS for new players.

Liberty's Edge ***

Everything is set for tomorrow. However, the GM who was to run the Glass River Rescue, 5-01, had to bow out. (I am looking for a GM who is willing to run, so feel free to contact me.)

My hope is that this can become a regular PFS venue

Liberty's Edge ***

Thanks, Robert!

Liberty's Edge ***

As I am a stickler for the rules, let me describe what i hope happens. (One credit per four sessions is reasonable,but I want to report allt he players._

Can I report the first four tables as a batch, listing myself once. Then list the last two tables with myself listed once. (I want to make sure any players get credit.) It is very unlikely because of the venue that I will have all the same players at all six sessions. As the shop also has a Magic The Gathering release and a tournament, I may have a lot of people just for one session and others in each of the following.

Liberty's Edge

Yes, it is still going on. I will try to send some copies out tomorrow. (I am running a PFS event Sunday, so I have been busy prepping.)

Liberty's Edge ***

Thanks for the information I will hope to get six tables out and report al the players.

Liberty's Edge ***

I will run all six slots this Sunday. How to report the event should be a bit clearer, as I expect different players for all or most sessions.

Liberty's Edge

Welcome aboard, Julie!!!

One factor that would limit the ability to kill Runelords (and keep the list to a manageable level) is that magic can do things that a Roman emperor would have sold his soul to do. Divinations and magic generally will help put down plots.

I am thinking somewhere between twenty and thirty-six runelords could work. Those are manageable numbers for a project.

Perhaps one factor also to consider is that sometimes a Runelord might consider it in his interest to stop a rival to another runelord. (Sometimes the devil might be the one you want to deal with as you are focusing on someone else. Note that this is not to be mistaken for altruism, merely self interest.)

Thank you for all you gave done for your local and the global PFS community!! Congratulations on the new addition to the next generation of gamers on the way!!

Without Brian stepping up, I am not sure that PFS would have continued in Northwest Indiana.

Liberty's Edge ***

Congratulations, Ben!!! Is there any advice that you would like to share for other GMs?

Liberty's Edge ***

Brian, thank you for all that you have done for PFS.

I first met Brian in connection to PFS back in 2010. He stepped up when Bob Jonquet moved and has worked very hard to keep PFS going and growing in Northwest Indiana. I have gamed with Brian and been his GM as well. When I first started in PFS back in 2010, I had not gamed much in a few years. Now, I am a three star GM with most of my credits earned with Brian as a very helpful Venture Lieutenant.

Brian has taught me a lot about GMing PFS and he will be missed at the tables here in Northwest Indiana. However, I am very happy about the new gamer on the way.
