PFS in Montreal

Andoran Venture-Lieutenant, Canada—Montreal aka Ryan. Costello

I'm looking to bring regular Pathfinder Society play to Montreal, starting with a day of Pathfinder Delves to build an audience on Sunday, September 11th at Chimera Games (6252 Somerled Avenue, Montreal, QC H3X 2B6). I would love to talk with local Pathfinder enthusiasts about expanding Pathfinder's presence in Montreal, particularly with more Pathfinder Society activity.

Awesome! Go Ryan Go!

Taldor

Hi, Ryan! You maybe remember me at the Board game blitz at Roludothon.

Unfortunately, since I live in the east of Montreal, I won't be able if it finish late (8PM), and it would take 1h45 to 2 hours to go home.

I would be interested to play.

In the meantime, I will try to seek players at the Gamer's Vault and make game there, since I hear some people is interested to join the PFS.

Are you a hour for the audience?

To any Montreal people or in Quebec, we have a group for PFS and feel free to post in french or english, since :

From what I saw at Gen Con, Ryan is an awesome GM and organizer!

So show up, mes amis!

Andoran Venture-Lieutenant, Canada—Montreal aka Ryan. Costello

Hi dragonvan, I've seen you post on Montreal's behalf in other PFS threads, so nice to hear from you.

I just joined the yahoo group, but if you want to reach me directly, try knowdirection at hotmail dot com.

Thanks!

Neil, speaking technically, are you the Venture Captain for Montreal?

Nope. But I would be happy to help out with any advice or whatever.

Drop me an email at my Venture-Captain address, or you have other ways to message me :)

There is no Montreal VC yet... It would greatly help if there were. I handle any French-speaking traffic.

Just signed up for PFS and would definitly be interested in playing in PFS events around Montreal...

Andoran

Just saw this thread, and I wanted to let everyone know I'm planning on organizing a Pathfinder Society Organized Play campaign, with myself as Gamemaster. I would be starting with the three-part introductory scenario, First Steps, parts 1 through 3, before moving on to the first Season 3 Scenario, The Frostfur Captives.

My availabilities for running a game would be Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday evenings, and the venue of choice would be at Gamer's Vault. If I can get players, I can look into making reservations for a backroom, to avoid the big crowds.

If interested, please pm me, or email me at rolland.therrien@videotron.ca

Qadira *****

Lonewolf -> Saw your post on the Pathfinder_Quebec. Good job man! If you have questions or need assistance, do not be afraid to ask Neil or me

Je suis francophone :)

JP

Andoran

Got two possible players. Any other takers?

Taldor

I would join for a game (if I can play the First Step part 1, since I did GM the scenario already) and I will sent a message for another person that make a character at a Gamer's Vault.

Hey Ryan,

Im in MTL and would love to play with you guys.

Is your PFS plan still in the works?

Yes, yes they are. Had a bit of a false-start last saturday, when a Gamer's Vault RPG Mini-Con ended up badly timed due to Comicon being on the same weekend, but I was still there ready for players. I think that says something about my commitment.

So far I have two potential players lined up, which would make you the third candidate. Feel free to email me for details.

The turn out for the delves was only okay, and most existing Pathfinder players and store staff. I'll try to schedule another event, I'm just not sure whether to try a delve again or move on to PFS.

PFS all the way Ryan. Go for it!

Taldor

At a player who is already playing in the PFS, I would like to play in the PFS.

Taldor

If you are still planning on running some games I, and possibly a few other players from a McGill pathfinder group, would be very interested in getting involved in organized play. We have players who are 10year + veterans, and players who just started d20 this month.

Andoran Venture-Lieutenant, Canada—Montreal aka Ryan. Costello

I'm not running but I'm going to try to make Rolland Therrien's Pathfinder Society: First Steps, Part 1: In Service to Lore game at the Roludothon tomorrow. Anyone who attends, I'd love to talk there about the future of PFS in Montreal.

Shadow Lodge

I am moving to Mtl in the new year and am eager to meet some new, experienced players. Shoot me a line at xdahnx at gmail.com if you'd be interested in opening up your gaming circles.


Hello, new to Montreal myself and looking to play.
If you'd be interested in starting a circle or having someone join yours, you can let me know at

Good luck :)

Andoran Venture-Lieutenant, Canada—Montreal aka Ryan. Costello

This is encouraging. If I plan another PFS event, would there be more interest in the First Steps scenarios or skipping straight to the new season?

Shadow Lodge

Personally, I'm down for either. I haven't played in any PFS games yet. There's not an organized group where I live currently, so I am eager to get involved in any way.

Qadira *****

Gang,
You may want to join the Pathfinder Quebec Yahoogroup. It is picking up and you may very well get more guys for your event.
If you need help, until a VC emerges in MTL, Neil (Ontario) or Me (Colorado, but Montreal-born) can assist you with any questions. (JP@Chapleau.us)
I could sometimes be coerced into running online events (and I frequently do with people across the province).

JP

Andoran Venture-Lieutenant, Canada—Montreal aka Ryan. Costello

Okay, trying to organize another store event at Chimera, this time using bribery!

Saturday, January 7th, from noon-5pm, Chimera will be hosting a daylong PFS event. Everyone who participates will be entered in a draw to win a Pathfinder RPG Beginner Box and Pathfinder Battles – Beginner Box Heroes Miniatures.

GMs are on hand to run the First Steps Scenarios as well as other season 3 scenarios. If there is a specific scenario you would like to play, let me know here and I will add it to the list of scenarios we will try to play that day.

If you’re interested, let me know in this thread. The more heads up we get, the more GMs we can arrange to have on site that day.

I would like to play the scenario 3-01 since I played or GMed the three First Steps scenario.

Andoran Venture-Lieutenant, Canada—Montreal aka Ryan. Costello

Just a reminder that this even is scheduled for this Saturday. Support Montreal PFS play!

Taldor

I hope that I will be available at our next meeting and play this Pathfinder Society Scenario #3-05: Tide of Twilight (PFRPG) since I know that nearly no one play this scenario.

It was an awesome game we get today.

Shadow Lodge

I was there as well today, and I had a blast. It was my first time playing Pathfinder, and thanks to everyone who helped me out.

Another big thanks to you for organizing this. I had been looking to play for quite some time and it was well worth the wait.

I'm looking forward to the next session, whenever that may be.

Cheers!

Andoran Venture-Lieutenant, Canada—Montreal aka Ryan. Costello

Glad you enjoyed it. Session's been reported and I'm in talks with Chimera (or will be in 45 minutes) about the next one.

Taldor

So! Are they any date for the next event?

Andoran Venture-Lieutenant, Canada—Montreal aka Ryan. Costello

The next date is confirmed. Saturday, February 11th, from 12:00pm until closing. Based on attendance last time, the plan is to run two tables this time.

The scenarios are most likely going to be #3-02: Sewer Dragons of Absalom and #3-05: Tide of Twilight.

Shadow Lodge

Nice, marking it off.

After reading through the Inner Sea World Guide, my girlfriend was in to PF enough to commit to coming along to the next session as well.

Looking forward to another good day. Since we're both level one, we'll be sitting at the Tide of Twilight table.

Cheers!

Andoran Venture-Lieutenant, Canada—Montreal aka Ryan. Costello

Looking forward to seeing you both there!

Will your girlfriend be rolling a character the day of or bringing her own?

Shadow Lodge

Hey Ryan,

We've already rolled up a character for her. Want to use all the time we have to play.

She'll be playing a half-elf Rogue. Her stats can be seen here.

Cheers!

Sczarni

Hi Ryan,

I just had a question regarding the mule I have to lug my stuff around.

Do I need to put a rank in Handle Animal if I don't want him to run away when we get into a combat encounter? The description in the Core Rulebook seems to indicate that an untrained mule would stay around due to their animal characteristics.

Thanks for your help.

Andoran Venture-Lieutenant, Canada—Montreal aka Ryan. Costello

According to the Handle Animal rule, you need to teach animals to fight and to run away. Just hanging around while combat happens nearby seems consistent with the rules and a mule's personality.

Just a heads up, Pathfinder Society does have rules against reskinning (using the rules of one thing as something else that would work the same way). Given the intentionally flexible rules for animals from the Bestiary, I think this does not count as reskinning (the James Jacobs quote helps), and I'll allow it, but some GMs might not.

I just realised something. One advantage to playing in a French-speaking part of the country is that people wouldn't mix up "rogue" and "rouge" nearly as often!

Unless they play a red mage.

When we were drawing up her character together, and finally adding up her gear weight, she really had to offload some weight to forgo the encumbrance penalties. So she just wanted to get a pack mule.

After looking in the Bestiary through the horse and pony entries, I was scratching my head as to what the stat block was supposed to be for a mule. We eventually hit upon the quote linked in her profile to the advanced pony template.

The mule is listed in the CRB as costing 8gp (PG 159), with a tid-bit of info on page 162.

Given that's the mule is so much cheaper than a pony, we figured there had to be something different in its stats. Turns out to be a bit of an oddity in that it's cheaper, yet has slightly better stats than a pony.

Thanks for the info, and for allowing the mule. I'll tell her tonight.

Cheers!

Just an update, we may only have one GM this weekend. If that's the case, we'll be running only #3-05: Tide of Twilight to accommodate last month's players. I will see if I can round up an extra GM for #3-02: Sewer Dragons of Absalom.

Andoran Venture-Lieutenant, Canada—Montreal aka Ryan. Costello

The date for the next PFS session at Chimera is set: Saturday March 17th. Are there any requests for which scenarios we play?

Taldor

When you say you probably wouldn't be available for March, in my case, I won't be here for the game.
I will be back for April, since I do other things at this St-Patrick Day (movie from the Festival of Film on Art and maybe look at the St-Patrick parade).

Shadow Lodge

I'll be there and you can count Branwen in as well again.

Pathfinder Society Scenario #3-09: The Quest for Perfection—Part I: The Edge of Heaven (PFRPG) PDF could be an interesting set to start. I realize though, that if a level 1 or 2 char comes in on the part 2 in April, it would be a bit of a loss to have missed part 1.

Alternatively, I was looking at Pathfinder Society Scenario #3-07: Echoes of the Overwatched, but I wondered if it would be fun to maybe play (from season 0) Pathfinder Society Scenario #5: Mists of Mwangi before playing this scenario from some of the comments I breezed over.

Also, I realize that we have selected factions already, but there's always the first steps scenarios for new players. I didn't read through those scenarios, but I did look quickly at the faction Missions paragraph to note that even though they assume the players has no faction, they do still give you the possibility of gaining 2 PP that can be applied to your faction total afterwards.

Any thoughts/opinions?

Cheers!

Andoran Venture-Lieutenant, Canada—Montreal aka Ryan. Costello

We will be running Pathfinder Society Scenario #3-09: The Quest for Perfection—Part I: The Edge of Heaven on Saturday, March 17th. Hope to see everyone there!

Taldor

They will be Pathfinder Society event at the Valet d'Coeur (4408 St-Denis) for the May 6th.

The scenario that would be play will be :

-First Steps III: A Vision of Betrayal
-First Steps II: To Delve the Dungeon Deep

Take note I'm not the organiser of the event.

Andoran Venture-Lieutenant, Canada—Montreal aka Ryan. Costello

This Saturday, May 26th, there will be at least a Tier 1 PFS game at Chimera. Which one is undecided. If everything works out, we will also be running Scenario #3-06: Song of the Sea Witch for Tier 3-6.

Andoran Venture-Lieutenant, Canada—Montreal aka Ryan. Costello

UPDATE: The Tier 1 scenario will be 3-05 Tide of Twilight, run by Daniel Mayrand. That's this Saturday at Chimera Games.
