I think that's an excellent idea. You should start another post about this and see what people have to say. The Lamplighter Faction was an awesome idea and got tons of input. Please?
Ah-ha! Yep. Played it but never GMd it. Wow. Really? The tactics say to do a CdG? Ouch.
Yes, that is awesome. This is the reason I check these boards a few times per day. It's always nice to find little tidbits like this to help me learn to be a better GM. I've been playing/GMing since 1980 and I still have a lot to learn!
When the GM reads the introduction, you'll see why a winter archaetye doesn't make sense. However, your GM could make up his own intro & starting point and have all of the party be made of winter archetypes. (Which does sound kind of cool now that I think about it).
Anyway, it's an awesome AP. Think dark fairy tale. Have fun.
My party encountered Ratibor last night. After making him friendly, he explained his curse put on him by Baba Yaga etc, etc... Anyway, when the PCs were gathering their supplies to leave the hut, I had ratibor mention that he saw Frost Giants milling about outside. The PC barbarian decided to open the door, go out to take a look while the rest of the party stayed inside. As soon as he went out that's when I had the first giant charge and attack. Critical hit. The barbarian, on his turn, withdraws back into the hut. Then Ratibor's curse kicks in. Initiative is rolled. Since the barbarian was the only one to come back in through the front door, Ratibor only attacks him. The party is doing mostly subdual damage & some lethal to Ratibor. Well, after a tough fight, they knocked Ratibor unconscious. Then they looted his gear.
So... Even though Ratibor befriended the party does he attack any of them when they come in through the front door? Did I totally misinterpret his actions? He is cursed.

GM reward Winter 2013: Elemental Ancestry (water) allows to create an Undine PC.
My Undine got killed early in Risen From the Sands yesterday. Luckily, the other party members pooled their gold to have him resurrected. Just wondered for future reference.
Back in the day (season 1) when I started playing PFS in Denver, a couple GMs would look at the party make up and decide if they should add +2 to all rolls, AC, & Saves for the villians if it seemed like an overpowered group of Pathfinders. Or just keep the scenario as written. I thought this was a simple and excellent formula to keep a somewhat balance to the scenario. I still use this formula for my PFS sanctioned Reign of Winter homegame and it has kept things more balanced than not.
I'm running a PFS sanctioned Reign of Winter AP. I'm running it like a homestyle campaign. Doing each book all the way through with some side treks here & there. To keep things simple, I had each player create a PFS legal character but we use hero points and the crit & fumble decks (sparingly). After each book, I ask the players which of their other PFS characters would like credit for the AP so that I can report it and give them a chronicle sheet. They are awarded 3 xp & 4 pp on each chronicle and will apply this to an in-tier PFS pc.

Hmm. Could you describe in greater detail what, exactly, you did? It may or may not have an impact on an alignment shift.
I'm running a PFS sanctioned Reign of Winter campaign. I had the players make PFS legal charactersand I run them through each book entirely. We meet 2 Mondays each month and play for about 4 hours each session. Running the entire book is nice so they can actually get immersed in the story. There's also plenty of time for role-playing and side treks since we don't have a time constraint. Then, after the book is completed, which takes about 4 or 5 sessions, I hand out the chronicle sheet which they can apply to any other PFS character in that level range.
