Maybe a bag of holding or portable hole filled with water? Possibly with a way to reduce the size of the shark?

Congratulations, Katie. Thanks for stepping up!!

WB4G is a module.

Modules count as 2 tables for star counting purposes.

Thanks for letting me know!! It is still only one xp per session.

Liberty's Edge ****

With my reporting of two sessions of WeB4Goblins from last Saturday, I have now reached the rank of a four star GM. The first, more successful session, was my 100th GM session. The second, while fun, was less successful for the players.

I am puzzled by one thing. Before I entered the data, I was at 99 sessions. Now, I am showing 103 sessions.

Thanks to Bob Jonquet, Brian Mooney, Sean O'Shea and all who helped me grow as a Pathfinder Society GM.

Did we ever settle whether WB4G is replayable?

Also, if you play more than once on Free RPG day, can you get the free rpg day boon more than once? Does it matter if you play at different stores? (In practice I am locally discouraging people from doing this, we only have 16 seats across 2 stores, and it would be disappointing to find out someone didn't get to play because someone got greedy.)

Yes, it is replayable for 1st level, as is the case for other Tier 1–2 modules.

My inclination is to say that no, one can only earn a single toad—likely won't have a chance to discuss that with the rest of the team, but I'd play it safe, especially if seats are at a premium.

Are GM's also eligible for the Free Toad? I had someone running this tomorrow ask me tonight, I told them yes but just wanted to confirm.
I would pass one out to all participants, and that would include GMs.

Am I correct that even if a GM runs this event multiple times, (I am planning on twice today), it is only one toad per player/GM? (It will be amusing for my Dwarven Warpriest of Torag to have the boon.)

Also, I was able to set my event up but had to list it as an unspecified event as WeB4Goblins! was stillnot listed.

Additionally, the badges were great. Let's hope for a lot of fun and mayhem today.

Liberty's Edge ****

Here is a question on a boon.

Spoiler:
Is the only way to remove the Dead Goblin boon via spending 16 Prestige Points to resurrect it and reactivate the boon? Or, if a player does not want the boon again (or perhaps cannot afford the 16 Prestibe Points to raise the toad from the dead), would a remove curse work to remove the penalty on interacting with goblins?

Liberty's Edge ****

I thought I would start a thread that will help people find venues running We B4 Goblins! this Saturday. So, let's see what stores and other venues are going to have some goblin mayhem this weekend.

Pathfinder Society returns to Lightspeed Hobbies in Portage, Indiana for Free RPG Day this Saturday, June 18, 2016.

I will run sessions of WeB4Goblins! at 11 am and 5:30 PM Central.

It should be added for reporting soon.

John, thank you for your rapid response. That is one of the things I love about PFS.

Also, as I am pleased to say that the first session I am running will be my 100th mod as a PFS GM. I wanted something memorable, so I am glad that the stars were right.

We will offer the following scenarios:

7-02, Six Seconds to Midnight, for characters of levels 3-7.
5-08, The Confirmation, for characters of levels 1-2.
0-07, Among the Living, for characters of levels 1-7.

Liberty's Edge ****

I concur as well. This gives players, particularly new players, a few more options.

Liberty's Edge ****

Congratulations!!!

Liberty's Edge ****

I have had lots of good role playing in my games. I encourage it, and I have players who are willing to interact with NPCs and find creative solutions to encounters.

I think that one problem is that you will see a lot of table variation, due to different GMs and players.

Hm. And I thought the Internet mantra was Google Knows All.

I guess that goes to show why SRM players are ripe for the plucking: Catalyst can't even keep their own website at the top of the Google search for "Shadowrun Missions."

I think that short missions and scenarios like Pathfinder Quests (ideally playable by people using their own and pre-generated characters) has much to recommend for attracting new gamers.

Trying to ease in/test pathfinder 2.0?

Sounds risky.

Companies do try out rules sets. Also, if Starfinder has material that would go into a new Pathfinder edition, it would not be without precedent. As I recall, some rules from WoTC's Alternity game appeared in the 3rd edition of D&D.

I suspect that Paizo sees science fantasy as a new genre to tap and reach out to new customers. Are there risks in setting up a new game system? Yes. However, Lisa Stevens and the leadership at Paizo know the problems TSR faced and can avoid repeating them. (I think that Ryan Dancey's article on why TSR died should be studied at business schools.)

Perhaps Paizo can address your concerns, BigNorseWolf, and why they think that a science fantasy game will be a success with new and existing players.

Liberty's Edge ****

As a long term participant in PFS. who should be a four star GM soon, I look forward to more PFS and SFS.

Liberty's Edge

Perhaps the PFS core races can be added in future seasons. I can see elves and dwarves particularly fitting into a science fantasy setting. (Elves are aliens on Golarion and dwarves have a technological bent. I suppose that WoTC has copyright on tinker gnomes.)

Liberty's Edge ****

There is already a few Starfinder Society threads. Here is another one.

Liberty's Edge ****

I am very pleased to learn about these announcements. As a longstanding PFS GM, I have had several young people at my tables. I have edited content.

I think that the spoiler warning might be something PFS could perhaps take from PSA. I have known gamers who had issues, and perhaps this would have been helpful.

I look forward to having the PSA materials. I can see a lot of teachers working with this at their schools.

Liberty's Edge

I think that Starfinder Society or Starfinder Corps could work. Sometimes, players like different genres. Starfinder would probably be similar enough to Pathfinder so that players would adjust to a new system fairly easily.

I know that there would have to be a lot of work to support two organized play programs. I am curious how that would work, as there would have to be a balance between supporting an existing organized play program and starting another one.

Liberty's Edge ****

Patrick, it might also be good to see if there are local shops that might be interested in Pathfinder. Here in Northwest Indiana, I am working with two shops - one of which did not have PFS before I volunteered to run. So, are there good venues near you that might work, such as a hobby shop or comic shop?

Congratulations, Kevin! Thanks for GMing.

I don't know if this is still a relevant thread but I have recently become much more able to attend gaming events. I am possibly interested in getting something started on Cape Cod, or the Wareham/Plymouth/ South Shore area. I'm also more than happy to join any established groups in the area
