Thanks for the update, Mike!
I, too, hope that you don't retire some of the Season 0 scenarios. Silent Tide and Black Waters are two of my favorites to introduce to new players. Hopefully the revised replay rules will enable GMs to re-run level 1-5 scenarios, the Beginners Boxed Set Bash scenarios, and the Quests, and still receive XP and Prestige credit for doing so.
It's very cool that PFS will no longer be tied to the annual AP. Year of the Shadow Lodge was immensely fun and I look forward to more metaplot like that.
The news about factions is intriguing, but I hope we don't bring back faction missions as that would be one way to keep a scenario on-track for just 4 hours. It's good news that the VOs will be looking over the scenarios before they're published. Another thing to keep tabs on are encounters that run longer than an hour (i.e., the first one in Frostfur Captives, which is otherwise one of my favorite scenarios). I prefer that the actions of the players directly impact the future and season metaplot. It makes the world more dynamic and gives players a feeling that their character's actions truly matter. So, please keep the ABCD checkboxes on the reporting sheets.
Speaking of reporting sheets, is there an ETA on when the online reporting system will allow the new factions?
