So I was thinking about this during the last day at PaizoCon this year and I thought I would float the idea to see if there was interest for 2016.
The concept is for a PF riff game. If things hold true for next year as they did this year, the concept would be as follows. Each swag bag had two PF Battles boosters in it. Each participant would not open their boosters until everyone sits down at the game table. A list of minis and their owners would be made to make sure everyone gets back what they put on the table.
The minis would determine what PC races from the ARG, if any, would be allowed outside of the CRB races (so if one kobold mini showed up in the draw, one player could create a kobold PC, if two hobgoblin minis showed up in the draw, two players could create hobgoblin PCs, etc. ... the owner of the mini gets priority otherwise it would be up for grabs with a dice roll to determine who gets to play that race if more than one person wants it). The PCs could be any class (they would not need to emulate the mini fully). The other minis would go into a pool that could be drawn upon for the encounters.
Players then would have 30-45 minutes to create a 1st level PC and determine how the PCs know each other. During that time, I would map out the encounters and once the last PCs is complete, the game would begin.
This would be a very freestyle type of game, a fair amount of improvisation, and rules loose (expect brief discussions and GM adjudication instead of digging through rulebooks if there are rules questions).
Anyone interested in this type of game for 2016?
