After 6 years of trying, I finally got my GF to start playing PFS a few weeks ago. Total nooB. She's still trying to learn "all those funny-shaped dice".

Don't worry too much about it. Sometimes tables don't go off because they'd rather max out number of players at a table than have too few, especially if it's a difficult scenario. At the last convention that I was registered to GM 3 tables at (one each day) only 1 actually had players. Sure, I was pretty bummed out after doing tons of prep (one table of mine that didn't happen was the Stonelords Special -not enough tier 1-2 players) but I shrugged it off and joined in as a player at another table. Met some awesome people and had tons of fun!
What are these shirts you're talking about? How do I get one?

Ok, thanks. Running it in 20 mins for tier 1-2.
If a character has the Charming trait, though, this could change things game to game. +1 bluff & diplomancy to members of opposite sex.
"I look female in this scenario so I get a +1 to my feint against the thug!"
Then, later on...
"I look male in this scenario so I get a +1 to diplomacy when talking to Shiela Heidmarch!"
I use D&D Dungeon Tiles quite a bit in my PFS games since I have a lot of them and not very many PF map packs or flip maps (slowly collecting, though!). I had a very good representation for each of the maps in The Confirmation, but, not exact. Some rooms were a few squares too big or small. I like to err on the side of too big when a cavern or room seems just too small for 2 large bad guys and 6 PCs. Is this allowed or should we draw the maps on blank battlemats if we don't own the actual map pack or flip mat?

It does cut down on the number of adjacent to a creature (8 on a square grid, vs 6 on a hex grid), and doesn't a hex grid break the two-diagonals = 15 ft rule as well?
Yes to both. So we must stick with squares. Plus, it would confuse a lot of nooBs switching from squares to hexes, back to squares, etc...

D'oh! I shoulda looked there first. Thanks.
Drogon,Have you considered writing a tier 1-5 scenario for PFS? You are in my Top 5 favorite GMs because you are always there to lend a helping hand on rules/setting/builds/well... everything! To everyone!

Ah! Ok. Yeah, just play a scenario before the 14th of August to get that 1 xp. Then all is good and you can continue playing it after the deadline.
I made a Tiefling Zen Archer today and will be playing The Confirmation on Monday to make him legal.

I don't know where to look for creating a pathfinder society character. I went to The PFS create a character and got to the creating part. But, where is the link to how to make the character? Such as, restricted classes, point buy amount, restricted races, starting gear, and so on.
After reading the Guide to Organized Play, a good idea is to print out the core 1st level pre-gen PCs to get an idea. You can even start with one and play it for a couple scenarios then change anything on it to suit your style.
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.
