Ferious, did you move? It was great to have you at games at the Wyverns Tale. Let us know how the games go in the Big Easy.
Yes, or more like moved back. I live in New Orleans, but was in North Carolina for the summer. I've got a lot of family up there and an old family place near Topton, so I'm hoping to be back in Spring or Summer.
And thanks, it was fun being at the games.
I gotta agree with Thorynn and Luth. Blood would be a great Anniversary run and it gives a good amount of time to get all the GMs (and potential alternate/additional GMs) time to prep the event fully.
Since this is a multi table event and it is not something we have done before, I think we should get the scenario to all the folks who are running it as soon as possible, prep maps for every table and make sure that we map out the estimated timing for each section so we don't have a large divergence between tables on time. I just don't think 1 month where some of the GMs have additional commitments to fulfill would do much to ensure we pull it off properly.

Im Game But Are you guys lol
prep maps for every table
Thats the other thing, the SCARAB crew had the maps printed out and laminated. If we could get our hands on those...
It was one of the best games I've ever participated in, bar none, and it would be a great way to celebrate an awesome year. If we set it between turkey day and Christmas, I think we could have a lot of peeps in town and ready to roll.
Please let me know more about this i would really love to run a table
Thanks, Jake, for the fix. Sorry for the incorrect tier-ing of Rebel's Ransom, y'all.
The crowd has spoken! We will save Blood Under Absalom for our Anniversary party. We'll also set that date and get GMs prepped to run the Asmodeus out of it ASAP. More info about it to be had here.
Well....what shall we do for the post-ACE time frame? Some more PFS scenario slots at the WT? Flash mob recreation of the Thriller zombie dance at Pack Square? Eh....maybe some more PFS scenario slots...
Alrighty then, Thorynn....do you want to create the extra PFS slots for that date as part of the ACE Warhorn site? Or should it be part of the APL regular Warhorn signup?
I thank everyone for the roll call. An actively verbal Lodge is what we've always been; feedback is appreciated.
Oh, speaking of sign-ups....SIGN UP!!!
Drop me a line and let me know what you need - SCARAB is here to help with anything we can. Paul is not operating in a box I want to make sure he has all the support he needs.
Please remember that in order for us to plan a 4-hour road trip you need to give us about 6 weeks of lead time.
I do have a single (board game) staff member in Black Mountain and frequently meet her in Spartanburg to drop off materials and goodies. So if there are just some props that you need I can get them to her and have them dropped off.
We are going to be running Race for the Runecarved Key at SCARAB but I would LOVE to get to run Blood Under Absalom since I didn't get to run it or play in it this past year :-(
After looking on the Warhorn page, I'm Sad to see that there are so few games... Not meaning to push but I can run my Alpha test on Saturday,and that would be about 2 games worth of time...
Background for My Campaign/Adventure Arc:
Lego seeing as the games posted aren't even full I don't think you'll get enough people for your game. As a personal rule I only run the campaign setting I'm developing on None PFS days, not that you need to play by my rules or anything, but I don't like to make my players choose between helping me and leveling their PFS characters.
You are of course always welcome to run whatever you want at TWT, we use their space because they are nice enough to let us, have you asked the guys about an open table? They really are the one to talk about running your game not us.

I think we should just use the regular APL warhorn for games at and after ACE. The ACE warhorn was setup months before we were regularly using it for APL. Unless that confuses things? I would love to see a lot of people playing at ACE as its a big event with lots of sponsors and could be really good to get some fresh blood in to lodge meetings. Afterwards, I think I'm headed to the minibosses show at emerald lounge, but if you guys wanna game a second session at TWT, more power to you.
That sounds awesome-I'll gladly playtest it with you.
And to everyone else, a lot of these convention acronyms (and perhaps some of them aren't acronyms for conventions) are lost on me; could someone please explain them and give a general calendar for them? Thanks!
APL - Asheville Pathfinder Lodge (not a Con)
Did I miss any?
I did get confirmation on the meaning of MACE (Mid-Atlantic Convention Expo)
Also if you are putting together a list of events in the area look here:
This is a list of the events we attend annually. There are many more if you are really ambitious :-)
Hey, you still need GMs for SCARAB in January?
Don't want you to get bored for lack of having any place to play :-)
We will definitely need GMs and the schedule will be posted in about 3-4 weeks. Right now I am finalizing the schedule for MACE which is turning out to be a great schedule.
Happy Thursday, y'all!
I'm as jealous as a Kellid in a fur factory that y'all are getting ready to have Module Day at the Wyvern's on Saturday. Don't forget to SIGN-UP for the mayhem.
I'm getting good at this Warhorn thing, thanks to some help from people who've had experience. Starting after this weekend, you'll note that the calendar view now tells you which store the games are going to be held at, as well as the scenario # (not present for modules or "other" stuff), and the levels of the scenarios (hopefully listed correctly). If you have admin access to Warhorn, please note the changes that I've made to all of the scenarios listed and list your game at the correct venue when you schedule stuff. Thanks!
I talked up some new people for this coming Saturday. Look out for the new Greenies! And someone (*ahem* zylphryx, StrangePackages) make sure to get them their 'Welcome' d20s (behind the desk at WT).
Thorynn, put in those slots for the after-ACE Wyvern's Tale games and we'll rock it out with some fun scenarios at WT in the afternoon. Looks like we've got some GMs who want in. The Blood Under Absalom special will wait until December 15th (the APL First Anniversary Melee Celebration).
Public kudos to Zylphryx for his work on the Goblin Moon Days - we now have 7 other PFS chapters who want to play-test his adventure! Awesome awesome awesome!
There are a few more APL tshirts behind the counter at the WT (I think, like, 2). Get them while they're hot!
Most of you know that ACE (Asheville Comic Expo) is going down at the Convention Center in Asheville on October 13th (Saturday). And if you don't know about it, then HERE.
Additionally, a number of us will be going to MACE (in Charlotte) from November 2-4. We'd love to have a large APL contingent. I encourage everyone who is going to make it known so that carpooling can be a possibility (especially if folks need a ride).
And finally, SCARAB (which is Del's convention) rocks. It is in January. More of us are going to SCARAB than MACE. Carpooling, commence!
This was going to be a short update! Ah, well, we're busy.
Cheers and 20s!
Considering the way I've been buried with work and other real life committments lately, I've got a suggestion for another...
Asheville Area Role Players (AARP)
The baby arrived on Wednesday - looks like the only reasonable and logical decision is to forgo the Saturday game... the gamer in me wants to rebel. I signed up on warhorn, but unless there is another moon and it aligns with ours, I won't be there...
Birth of child is always an acceptable excuse... look at it this way you can't use it again for at least 9 months soooo.... see you next session.
Congratulations, and welcome to the club if it is your first!
Alright people, I've given this plenty of thought...
Our time as a PFS Lodge is a fleeting time. We get together twice weekly (mainly) in order to roll dice and role play and socialize for a few hours. The thing that keeps us coming back is the rewards we get, be they from gaining experience, loot, levels, or simply socialization.
Pathfinder Society scenarios are our life-blood. If we start to dilute them by offering other games during the times that we meet, our close-knit group will suffer, and people will stop being as rabidly-intense (you know who you are) about this awesome thing that we have. And then they'll stop coming.
Yes, we ran 'Raidmakers' a few weeks' back, and it wasn't for Society credit - but it was developed as something that could be played by Society players. I'm flip-flopping on a previous decision that I made - I feel that Asheville Pathfinder Lodge Saturdays (twice weekly) need to be reserved for Pathfinder Society events only.
If you have a different game, a different system, something home-cooked, I invite you to run it at the Wyvern's Tale. But not every other Saturday when we have Pathfinder Society time. I feel that that's in the best interests of our fledgling group to keep the liquor STRONG, by not diluting it.
I hope I haven't offended (twas not my intention); and I hope y'all have a grand Lodge Day. See ya soon.

I wouldn't stress about it. The RPG space at the con is a little limited. If you can, awesome, if you can't, we'll make do. Thanks!
Thanks all for a very successful session. Unfortunately, reporting will be slightly delayed as our VC had a few real-world distractions to deal with this weekend. We'll get the sheets to him and get your credit applied ASAP.
Hope everyone had a good time. It was really good to see so many new faces. Special thanks to Lego, for pitching in to run the Intro Steps twice! Hope to see your crew return for more fun.
