I weep for the scarcity of dirty old men in the world.
Second. There is no nakedness in my above post Lordsynos.
Basically Kate was drunk and told my clients to bet on the Panthers. Combined they have $240K riding on the game. If they lose, I lose.
So pray for the Panthers.
Maybe Freehold can explain what I do.

My staff and personnel are the best in the world.
My friends and clients would be the worst hero team in the world.
We would never be able to get through the opening scene trap, much less save the world in the end.

I actually see the game logic in losing XP for losing a Familiar.
The only time I had PC with a Familiar was when my Half Elf had a Faerie Dragon way back in 1st Edition, based off this iconic artwork. She (the Faerie Dragon) called herself, Princess Valentina Precious Smaug, (six times removed from the Lonely Mountain Smaugs) and had a fondness for layered cinnamon and vanilla cakes.
I love how the lizard is barely damaged, while the other animals are in terrible shape. He may have the body of a lizard, but he still has the hit dice and HP of a T-Rex.
In 1st Edition Dessert of Desolation series my Magic-User Polymorph Other a Purple Worm into a Warhorse.
The Warhorse was near indestructible but always tried to swallow the party Halfling Thief whole or burrow through the ground.

And if you wish to GM PFS at GenCon, you might want to start GMing elsewhere to gain some experience. I'm not seeing any GM Stars on your profile.
Maybe you can phrase that a little better, as could his own phrasing which did seem a bit belicose. Certainly having some con experience is definitely a plus and can only help but the Society stars are hardly the sole indicator of how good a game master has the potential of being.
I have been DM'ing since 1986, about four years after I started playing, this will be my tenth Gen Con and about my 23rd large game convention.
I have been a part of Paizo's exemplary team of volunteers for a decade as a Tier 1 or 2 volunteer and helping run an incredibly organized and successful Gencon these last few years has been a privilege. It started with helping Nick Logue briefly before Pathfinder was even PFS then a year later Josh Frost at the PFS HQ for the first two official PFS Gen Cons and one NeonCon, and after that with Mark Moreland and Liz Courts when it was their turn at bat. And of course all of Mike Brocks years as well. I have also coordinated smaller but well attended gaming events both at the San Diego and New York Comic cons on several occasions. I also assassinated Tim Hitchcock during a Gen Con special.
I actively help Josh Frost solicit Venture Captains the first year the call was made and I think I know almost all the original Venture Captains. Since the start of Year 0 I was active preaching Society play in New York and the Tri State area. Fortunately for me, I still have many friends from this time. For a year I even hosted GMs in my area to run a Slot 0 so they themselves got to play scenarios.
I think I have completed 63 slots as a volunteer for Paizo and I still have one star to my name. But while I am not the rules lawyer some are, I would like to think any player who sits at my table has had at least as good a time as I had running it for them.
We lost Bradley...
May the Soul Forger throw open the Gates wide and welcome you with a full tankard of his finest Good Master Dwarf.
For those who were not aware, he was a great Tolkien fan and his user name is from the 8th Dwarf from The Hobbit, Glóin, son Gróin, father of Gimli.
Better you than me Baron. Saved me an awkward moment.
Nothing awkward here.
As my personal favorite Poet Sean Connery said,
Sean Connery : "My magic watch says you aren't wearing any underwear."
Hot damn: "Well your watch must be broken because I am in fact wearing underwear."
Sean Connery (looks at watch) : "Damn thing must be ten minutes fast..."
Don't make me bring the baron in on you guys!
I have a confession.
I use to be a Canon lawyer. Like a BIG Canon lawyer. That changed very recently. Not all of a sudden mind you, but very gradually, and was only cemented after I saw this current incarnation of the Saga.
I think I have posted what "is Canon and semi Canon, or near Canon or Canon until proven otherwise" at least four times in the past months on several sites and if you go back to the start on the interwebs I think what is and what is not Canon has officially changed seven times and been amended to more than North Korean law to praise their glorious leader.
If I were to type out what I have to say about Canon it would probably be four times as long as any post above.
I will say this, if you like it, then please consider it part YOUR own Star Wars Universe, your life will be all the richer for it, be it Canon, lesser Canon or Demi Canon, or Robot Chicken's interpretation of events.
Don't site it as Canon but mention your source, share the idea.
Hey there are some people out there who like The Star Wars Christmas Special. George Lucas has called lighsabers laser swords in scripts and interviews. And my eye twitches at the mention of midichlorians.
Shadows of the Empire was a multi platform media event, one of the first of its kind, which incorporated a novel, video games, toys, and comic books and it was consider hard Canon when it first came out. Even the moderators of Wookieepedia have argued where it should be listed now.
The are murmurs that the novel Darth Plagueis may be elevated to Canon status and that would signal Snoke is Darth Plagueis.
The Star Wars Saga has united generations of fans from the 70's to 2015, and audiences as varied as movie goers deep in Harlem who vocally and loudly yell at the screen to vast numbers of Tokyo film viewers staring in utter and ghostly silence out of sheer respect, are all still fans one and the same.
So unless you need to site an official source or are writing a doctorate, I think we can all enjoy all the levels of Star Wars.
The voices of The Force Awakens
From Rebels and The Clone Wars Sam Witwer (Emperor Palpatine) and James Arnold Taylor (Obi Wan Kenobi).
Stormtrooper: “Check over there.” “Fan out!” “Copy that, 1138.”
— James Arnold Taylor and Sam Witwer
Interesting note the number 1138 is a nod to George Lucas who had this number in all his films.
Another Easter Egg can be found in the night scene with BB-8 and the red eyed alien.
Red Eyed Sand Alien (watching BB-8 roll away): “Kojima.”
Definitely a reference for Hideo Kojima, the game designer behind Metal Gear Solid.
Matt Lanter, Anakin Skylwaker in The Clone Wars, played a Stormtrooper at Maz Kanata’s Castle.
Stormtrooper (radio prompts Rey to first see trooper): “FN-417, hold position.” — Matt Lanter
Kevin Smith fan boy turned entertainer was part of the voices.
Stormtrooper (reacts to incoming Resistance fighters): “We have incoming at 28.6! Move!” — Kevin Smith
The Stormtrooper that faced the TRAITOR was voiced by David Acord, a Sound Designer at Lucasfilm.
And officially confirmed: the T-16, mentioned in A New Hope, got its follow-up model
Stormtroopers (as Rey sneaks out toward ledge):
“You checked out the new T-17s? The T-17s, as far as I can tell, are a great improvement. Yeah, that’s what they tell you, but believe me, they don’t hold up. They don’t? No …” — David Collins and Sam Witwer
Pip Anderson had a speaking role at the Battle of Takodana. It was often rumored he was the guy that left the bloody fingerprints on Finn’s helmet.
Stormtrooper (into comlink): “Request air support!” — Pip Anderson
So a rather tame/mundane example of Orthos's Bizarre Dreams last night.
My most boring dream involves me arguing with a Time Warner representative.
One of my most entertaining recurring dream when I am in a warm climate area is that its the modern world I'm somewhere in either Southern Italy or the south of France, and five assassins are after me and a woman in my care.
The assassins are never typical, from near teenage youths to overly obese women, they have the most noir weapons, from a barbers straight edge razor to a hypodermic syringe that was laced with something that would kill within a minute.
There are always chase scenes, they come one at a time and never together, and I almost always beat the first guy, I get killed of by the second through fourth guys.
I don't think I have ever made it to the fifth assassin, but I really believe the girl I am escorting turns to be the very assassin.
