Can I request Fingerprints of the Fiend or Lyrics of Extinction? They're high tier though, so not sure if we'd get the players?
Also, why don't you just keep the existing Paizo event? It's a recurring event, so you shouldn't need to create a new one each time but just add new dates to the existing one.

Tricky. Adam already DMed Lyrics of Extinction a while ago at Blacktown.
There is a chance we'll have 3 tables , but two of those are likely to be low level (I'll need to talk to Andy to see what he wants to DM). So yeah, it's unlikely we'll have enough players for another high level table. Bummer.
EDIT: I've made up the event page like you recommended. Like last month, it's event number #8660.
For next Saturday, we have the following games:
Me: (Tiers 1-7)
Andy: (Tiers 1-7)
Hope to see you there.

Hmmm if you have a character that has played the first 3 parts to series but when given the chance to play the last part he is too high for the module what happens with that? I played the first 3 parts to Devil We Know. Or would I have to play in the 7-11 tier table?
Tiers are set in stone as far as I'm aware. Afraid you're stuck with the high tier game unless you use a different character.
We have made some changes to the schedule for MacquarieCon to reflect demand and open up extra seats at popular tables. Unfortunately, complications with the registration system have delayed the updates until this late stage, but there is still a couple of days left until registration is closed so don't delay. The new schedule is detailed here.
Games for January are being finalised. The current list looks like this:
Andy's Table (Low-Mid Tier)
Adam's Table (High Tier)
My Table (Low Tier)
For my second game, I will be bringing along a good selection of season 2 low-level scenarios to choose from.

Cheers all, hope to see you there
I have recently moved to Sydney from Wagga Wagga and I am looking for a group to game with. I would like to join, but I don't know how to join, or if it is possible for me to join.
I live in the Eastlakes area, but I am willing to travel a reasonable distance to attend one of the sessions. If you can fit me in to a game session, I would really appreciate it.
Feel free to come along tomorrow (Saturday 4th) and join in. Not sure how much you know about PFS, so I'll go through some of the basics.
Normally, I'd just ask you to make up a 1st level character using the rules outlined in the Core Rulebook and the Guide to Pathfinder Society Organise Play. In fact, you'll still need to do that. Also, it would be a good idea to get a paizo number (go to http://paizo.com/pathfinderSociety and click on Join the Pathfinder Society! on the right side of the page)
However, we're actually not doing any games for 1st level PCs. Instead, we'll be running a module (Masks of the Living God) tomorrow designed for 3rd level PCs (although 2nd or 4th is acceptable), which creates a slight complication. You have three choices: First, use an existing PFS character (of 2nd, 3rd or 4th level) if you have one. Secondly, just come along and the GM will give you a pre-generated character to play as a one off. Alternatively, you can create a 3rd level PC for the game, also as a one off (you have 3000gp to buy stuff in this case).
Any queries, feel free to post here. But it'll be much clearer on the day.
Ladies and Gentleman the Next Pathfinder Society Games day at Good Games Burwood will have the following tables:
Also please register for a seat at the tables ASAP at The Shadow Lodge Warhorn Site
Here's the current March line-up for the Blacktown games day:
High Tier (Tier 7-11)
Will upload in Warhorn shortly.

Only four weeks to go until Ruby Phoenix!
All the scenarios and sanctioned modules have now been loaded into the registration system so you can now sign up for games here. If you have already registered and indicated preferred tiers, then we have transferred you over to what we thought would be the best option. But you may have already played what we chose for you, so go, check, and switch to any game you'd prefer if we got it wrong.
As you'll see there are over 50 games to choose from, including the latest scenarios and sanctioned modules. Not sure what to play? Well, there are some clear advancement paths throughout the Con. If you're starting a 1st-level, for example, you could play The Godsmouth Heresy, followed by Crypt of the Everflame, Masks of the Living God, City of Golden Death, and conclude with Carrion Hill. You'll be 6th-level at the end, if you survive, of course...
Alternatively, you could start with the Quest for Perfection trilogy, and try to recover an item that will help the most powerful members of your Society to succeed in The Ruby Phoenix Tournament which will be running in parallel as well as at the end of the Con.
If you have a 5th to 7th-level character, then you could play From Shore to Sea followed by Realm of the Fellnight Queen, Cult of the Ebon Destroyers (which will be GMd by its author and Ruby Phoenix special guest, RPG Superstar 2010, Matt Goodall), and conclude with The Harrowing. If you manage to survive, you will have advanced four levels by the end of the Con!
In addition to the scenarios and modules, we also have our first character building workshop. So if you're looking for tips, tools, and tactics for your character, sign up for Saturday morning's informal discussion on how to take your concept to crunch. Our Masters of Ceremony, Metz & M, will lead and moderate proceedings so bring your character concepts, a notebook, and an open mind...
There are, of course, many other options available too, so sign up and check out what's on offer. If the game you want to play is fully subscribed, and there's nothing else you can play, then sign up to the game's waitlist. As we've always done in the past, we'll do our best to accommodate demand and, if necessary, switch undersubscribed games to create more tables of popular games. So don't hold back from telling us what you want to play!
When signing up to play sanctioned modules, bear in mind that you'll need to sign up to play all the parts of the module which will run over two or three slots. Don't know which games are sanctioned module and which are scenarios? Check in the blurbs!
Note also that, as of version 4.1 of the Guide to Organised Play, you will now need an existing level-appropriate character to play a sanctioned module, just as you do for a scenario. So, please, only sign up for games for which you will have a character within the advertised tier remembering, of course, that you will level up at the end of every three scenarios, or at the end of a module.
See you soon!
As usual my life is a Charlie Foxtot. I may be asking for door registration at this rate.
Seems I have my days mixed... I went to Sydney good games instead.
Hi, I'm Jed. Though I've played D&D 3.0 and 3.5, I've never played Pathfinder ever before and I want to get started especially because I find the organised soceity play very interesting.
I hate playing pre-gens, so I'm coming to Ruby Phoenix with my 1st level ninja in hopes I get to play regularly afterwards. I'll definitely purchase the beginner box as soon as I can be guaranteed that there's a game and campaign for me to be a part of.
I need to REALLY plan properly for Ruby - or Eyecon for that matter - I leave for China on Easter Monday for a 2 week business trip... lots going on work wise so its possible I may not go.
Just as we have done in the past, we have now made several changes to the schedule to reflect demand, and to account for some variations in sanctioned module durations that arose during our play-test. There are quite a few changes so head to the Ruby Phoenix Warhorn site to check and update your registration. Due to demand, we have now increased our schedule from five sessions per slot to six sessions per slot. That's 66 sessions of Pathfinder Society organised play over the Easter Long Weekend.
So, with two and a half weeks to go until Ruby Phoenix, 50 of the 66 tables are running with:
Of the 16 tables still to reach minimum numbers:
We've increased Masks of the Living God and The City of Golden Death to three slots each to ensure that there will be plenty of time to complete those modules.
If you were affected by any of the changes we’ve made, then we have ensured that you remain registered in a new option at the same tier but please check and update your registration as soon as you can to ensure that you're playing what you want to.
When signing up, make sure that you're also staying aware of how you will level and thus qualify or disqualify for a later adventure. For example, if you intend to play The Godsmouth Heresy with a 2nd-level character, you will be 3rd-level at the end if you survive. This means that you could not then take that same character into Crypt of the Everflame, which is for 1st and 2nd-level characters only.
Any questions, let me know. See you soon!
Anyone going on Saturday from the Guildford/Merrylands area?
I may look at the Cyrpt of the EF... is it just two sessions as the game?
It looks like those tables are full AND I'm in other games for those slots.
I've taken the Gods Mouth Heresy and will pray to the gods that I can wrap it up in 2, not 3 sessions or that session 3 finishes early.
With those games its its only 4 Prestige and 2xp up for grabs, right? Need to factor that for day 2 play.
Again, anyone heading even to Ruby Phoenix from Parramatta way if not Guildford or Merrylands?
Can't wait for Ruby Phoenix.
I've also registered for Shadow Lodge Burwood on the 31st of March [Tide of the Morning]
Am I good to use my 1st level Ninja Elf for that game and the upcoming Ruby Phoenix modules? You'll have to bear with me, I may be used to 3.5 rules but not the Pathfinder organised play culture.
Should be A-Ok mate
Not sure BUT hoping beyond hope that the Organisers will hand out some boons this tournament.
Well the fun is a given.
The fun of hanging out with people and playing a game we enjoy in such fine surroundings is like ordering a delicious and light spongecake of sugary goodness, however it always behooves one to ask for just the right icing to really top it off.
For example, on a vanilla sponge, how good is a fine and delicate lemon icing eh? Takes sensational to stellar in one move.
Its like having sauce on a pie.
It's like having pretzels with your beer.
Its like having Jennifer with your Angelina... no wait...
I see boons as giving ADDITIONAL options for fun - Adding Jennifer to Angelina to use Shifty's analogy.
One and a half weeks to go until Ruby Phoenix and 56 of the 66 tables are running, an increase of 6 tables from last week, with:
Of the 10 tables still to reach minimum numbers:
The latest batch of schedule changes have been updated in the registration system so head back to the Ruby Phoenix Warhorn site to check and update where desired. The changes made this time were once again to create more tables for adventures that were oversubscribed. With Crypt of the Everflame proving to be very popular, we have added an extra table of Masks of the Living God, and City of Golden Death to permit continued play through the entire Price of Immortality trilogy. As always, if your registration was affected by any of the changes we’ve made, then we have tried to ensure that you remain registered in a new option at the same tier but go and check to ensure that option is OK.
The final batches of schedule changes will be made towards the end of next week so, if you're very keen to play something that has booked out and there's nothing else you can play in that time slot, then join the wait-list to let us know what is in demand and we'll do our best to accommodate.
Finally, I'm pleased to announce that Good Games have made a special offer to Ruby Phoenix attendees. If any of you would like to purchase any Pathfinder products, they will provide a 10% discount, and deliver them to Ruby Phoenix for you pick up when you arrive. To take advantage of this offer, email me with your order asap. Con delivery is, of course, limited to items in stock before Easter.
Any questions, let me know. See you soon!
