Thanks for the offer, but I've already played that scenario.
I've gotten a couple of replies here and if you want to play/GM, we might have a game going.
I've got a group of people locally that I usually play with and missed a session due to unforeseen circumstances. We've been playing Destiny of the Sands and I need a group for Part 2. My preferred times are this Friday or Saturday night either at 7 or 8 PM CDT. I would appreciate anyone that can play, but if it doesn't work out, I totally understand.
EDIT: Forgot to mention that I would be playing a 3rd level Sorcerer, so tier isn't a limiting factor.
I know it's convention season and GenCon starts tomorrow (I wish I was there), but it's time to start getting the word out for CogCon 24.
The Missouri S&T Gaming Association is happy to announce that CogCon 24 will be held in the Havener Center, on the Missouri S&T Campus in Rolla, Missouri, September 19 - 21, 2014. Come join us for three days of gaming!
Over 60 tables of gaming will be run, including year 5 scenarios, year 6 scenarios, and an open library.
We will be bringing back the famous CogCon Raffle, so come ready to win!
Scenarios will be added as the event gets closer. Want to volunteer to GM? Please contact us!
For more information please go to CogCon Gaming.
To Register please see our Warhorn site.
There are quite a few scenarios where identifying yourself as a Pathfinder makes things worse. I've had tables where "IN THE VC BRIEFING" they specifically say to hide your affiliation with the Pathfinder Society, that immediately start using their Society resources at the first sign of trouble. It makes for some interesting scenarios.
As far as I know you should be able to. I just have a lot of nail polish in my house (wife and 2 daughters) so I don't have to worry about buying the primer and paint.
Here's the link to the picture. I'm still trying to figure out what color to paint it. We use ABS plastic, so I'm going to use nail polish to paint it eventually.
I've not painted it yet, but I can post the picture of the model later tonight, once I get home from work.
I have access to a 3D printer and decided to just print one myself. It's a multi-tailed fox, so not humanoid form, but close enough for what I want. I'll have to see if I can find the link again and post it here.
EDIT: Found the link here. It may be a "premium" model, but if you sign into the website, you are allowed to download 10 premium models a month.

It appears to be. The scale is 1 square is 10 feet. Reading through the scenario, the rooms would be awfully cramped if they were 5 foot squares with all the stuff that is supposed to be in them. It makes it hard trying to print out the maps when they are 1 sq = 10 ft.
If you don't like Sheila, you really wouldn't like Drendle Drang. He falls under the shady-looking guy in the tavern (my opinion). As for Sheila, I've always thought of her a one of the more friendly VCs. She is a great VC for Varisa and it make for some fun times RPing her with some of the PCs in my area.
I'm looking forward to Eyes as we have a fairly rounded out group here almost ready. As for the Decemvirate, I've always thought of them as slightly shady just because of the fact they hide their identities.
The Free RPG Day mod from 2 years ago allowed the use of the pregens for that module only. This should apply this year as well since they will want to tempt players to get the ACG.
Now, do we have any word yet on if it will be sanctioned? I've been watching the thread on the product page, but nothing yet as far as I know.
I got some inspiration on how to RP Lander from a few other people in my area who RP Taldon nobles. Cocky, arrogant, above everyone else... It gives a decent description of Lander in the module that helps.
I also gave the boons to the entire party since that's what it read like to me.
Unless you have a party of optimized PCs, Marek should dispatch the PCs easily, based on his stats. An 11th level Fighter against a group of level 1-5 PCs should be no-contest.
I'm doing the same thing and if you read through the rules attached for the chronicles, I'm handing the chronicles out at the times specified in the sanctioned rules. Ex: I'll be handing out the chronicle for Snows of Summer once they get through P5 in the story.
EDIT: I guess I should clarify that I think all the players are creating a new PFS character to apply this to, but it definitely can go to existing characters.

There was another post that I read, that implied something along what I was saying, but I could have read it wrong.
Agreed, if you have the gold and PP to retrain, go for it, but like what was said earlier, this is a playtest and just because there is something you like about a class now, doesn't mean that it will still be there when the book is released.
Remember if you have a level in one of the new classes, alternate classes list, you cannot take the new class, or the other way around as well.
EX: I have a 5th level Fighter and want to take a level of the Brawler class. I cannot retrain one of the fighter levels into the new class, nor can I take a level of Brawler class when I level to 6. If I wanted to make use of the Brawler class, I would have to retrain all 5 levels to Brawler and then I will not be able to take additional levels of Fighter or Monk.
I agree it takes time and looks fuzzy, but it isn't as hard to make them 1" squares as it seems to be. The only issue I've had converting maps to a roughly 1" square is the maps that have 1 square = 10 feet. Those are hard to make work. The players at my tables LOVE seeing the actual maps for the custom maps in the scenarios since it makes it more immersive for them. I know it isn't cost effective for everyone to do so, but I've got resources to make it happen. Also, if they do include the maps with 1" squares, the files themselves would be HUGE.
I didn't realize how may total tables we had, but things are looking up for CogCon again. I want to thank Barb and Allen for getting this organized every year with the help of the S&T Gaming Association. If it wasn't for them, there wouldn't be a CogCon.
Also, a big thanks to everyone who judged and to the Venture Officers who made the trip to Rolla with prize support.
There were lots of new players this year and I hope to keep seeing them in the future.
I know it's kind of short notice, but I want to see if I need to pack my PFS gear. I'll be in Buffalo NY from October 4rd to October 9th and was wondering if there were any PFS games that I could join while my wife is attending a conference there. Travel distance is limited, but I will have transportation available. Also, play time isn't a limiting issue, as long as I know when we will be starting. If you don't want to post publicly, I'll be glad to talk in private messages.
I know that there are online PFS games available as well, but I'm not 100% certain what my Internet access is going to be (ie. hotel, hotspot, etc..).
What I am hearing is I need to make a new character that worships Drandle Drang.
I can see it now.
I was thinking more of the midnight wake up calls by Declan (Drendal) Dreng where is was so important that you went immediately even though he had sent other pathfinders before you.
Bring him back and we'll have some fun. :)
I've gone with a Kitsune Fighter who will be a "grapple, DEX fighter" and all the normal feats going to Magical Tail and the fighter bonus feats going toward replacing STR modifiers with DEX modifiers (ex. Weapon Finesse). His main stats are DEX and CHR and is a very good talker (traits to add CHR skills as class skills.) He won't be very effective in combat until about 4th level, but is an absolute blast to play so far. He is also a Chelaxian native with an interesting back story.

Looks like Heidmarch manor is close enough to the cliff for this to work... but it seriously derailed the chase.
As long as you sort out the different areas (Forest, Urban, Dungeon) and only use the specific area for the module, (I forgot to separate the areas and ended up getting a cliff in the middle of Magnimar and just went with it) it actually runs well with the deck. The next time I ran with the deck, it was lots of fun, even to a couple people who normally don't like the chase scenes.
I know they aren't actual Society adventures, but don't forget about the sanctioned modules. I know there was a post on here awhile back about the path to get to about level 18 using modules. I'll see if I can dig it up and link to it.
As for having more 12+ official scenarios, I'm good with having Eyes of the Ten and the occasional Convention Special. It gives those that truly want to play their character another option and not just be limited to modules.
EDIT: dang you and your ninja Walter
I liked the challenge of applying the template myself, but then I found a link to this monster advancement tool on d20pfsrd. It has saved me time and mistakes when changing creatures. I don't think it has all the monsters in there, but definitely has the majority of them.
The Gaming Association at Missouri S&T presents their Spring Game Day, Friday evening, March 8 and Saturday, March 9.
This event is free, however donations will be accepted to defray the costs of the game day.
This event will be held at the Havener Student Center on the Missouri S&T Campus in Rolla, MO.
I will update this post once I have a link to the Warhorn site.
Hope to see you there. If you have any questions, feel free to post here or contact me and I'll see if I can get them answered.
Along these lines, I don't go all out on the handouts, but I do take the time before hand to make my own printed document that has all the stat blocks for each sub-tier. This way, the only thing I have to print out is the handouts, chronicles, and the stat blocks. I do configure the templates, if any, for the NPCs/monsters. It makes it easier for me to then run the scenario from my tablet and not have to worry about flipping pages to make sure I get the right encounter stats. I've only got a few completed, but as I prepare to judge a new scenario, I add these to my collection. I'd be willing to share what I have with anyone who wants it. Just send me a message.
As far as I know, you can make up just about anything for continuity sake between the faction leaders. I don't think there were any explicit stories on the change of power and the addition of the new factions. I could be wrong about this as my Golarion history roll is only a +3.
You could look at the changes from season 2 to 3 as being, the people giving the missions from season 0-2 are subordinates of the new faction head, or that the current faction leaders are working with the faction leaders from season 0-2 and share the same goal. Most of my players wonder why certain factions were paired up with others for the early scenarios, but just go with it except with certain alignments (LG) and factions (Silver Crusade) not doing the mission given by the Andoran faction leader.
