Had jury duty today, so I didn't see this until now. I'm interested in midweek games, though there's not a lot of time to throw it together now. You should post it on the Facebook group, since that will send email notifications.
If you'll post a shout out, I'll have somethign ready and be there at 12:00. Sounds like there may be enough interest to get a table. Test the waters best we can...
Hello, my finely-feathered fetchlings,
I hope you are all well today. I met with the proctors for the GM 101 course last nite. They are, StrangePackages (Justin), Zylphryx (Dain), and Thorynn (Kevin), along with yours truly. We discussed the syllabus, as well as schedules. I do think you're all in for a humdinger of a course, but there are some updates:
We need to move the course by one Friday night (to 9/26/12) in order to a) accommodate our proctor's schedules, b) match up with the next Lodge meet-up (9/27/12), and c) maximize the potential for awesome. I've made the appropriate changes on the Warhorn site, so take notice, all y'all. No need to sign up again, by the by, as I've transferred all who previously signed up to the new date. If you need to check it out: HERE.
But what exactly will you be doing in this course, you might ask? I'm glad you did. Here is the breakdown of the mini-sessions that we will cover during the course. And remember, a minimal part of this will be Pathfinder-specific. I do believe that we all can raise our games in whatever game system we play through this course:
a) "Baby Got Back(ground)" - Roleplaying memorably and bringing your world to life
More will come out as we continue to prepare. Happy Thursday, y'all!

Maybe I can use the birthday excuse to show up for it now.
I love you "Noonies". Or is it "Nooners"?
Happy Monday, my Gorgeous Grippli!
This is going to be some week, that is fo sho! Let's go to the highlights reel...
Monday (that's today) in a few short hours (at NOON), our very own Luthril will be running a mid-week mid-day Pathfinder Society (PFS) adventure at the Wyvern's Tale (WT). They're still looking for some more players, so get in on the action if you're in.
Tuesday (that's tomorrow night), we'll be rocking some PFS craziness at the Deck Box in Fletcher starting around 6PM. Come on out and brave the flea market crowd, and bring a friend. We've got a fledgling group there that could always use more Pathfinders.
Saturday is ACE!!!! That's the Asheville Comic Exposition, if you have been under a rock for the past few weeks/months. It'll be at the Civic Center (US Cellular Center), and it will be Excelsior! Comics and costumes and table gaming and card gaming and vendors and Minibosses oh my!!! Come on and get your TMNT on! $5 at the door to get in to the Awesome. Many kudos to Thorynn and his crew for putting this dang thing together. What dang thing? THIS DANG THING!!!
And if you haven't had enough gaming at ACE, there will be games after ACE!!! PFS will be moving to the WT and continuing gaming into the wee and chilly (it's fall, y'all!) hours of the evening on Saturday night! More games! More dice! More! More! MORE!!!!
Oh, you want to sign up for all this junk? Well, I don't know where to tell you to go------
WARHORN SIGN UP!!! Boom.
That is all. For now....(moo hoo hoo hoo hah hah hah MOO HOO HOO HOO HAH HAH HAH HAH!!!!!)
Soooo... for those esteemed gentlemen lucky enough to survive on Monday, if you would like me to record the scenario before Saturday please be so good as to PM or post your Character name, #, and Faction :)... Sorry I had to dash but child takes precedence over gamer buddies every time.
You guys did an excellent job defeating the darkness... and darkness is a B so... Nice work.
The Friday GM 101 class will be on Friday, October 26th starting around 6PM. You can sign up on Warhorn. (The link works!)
Had a grand group of 6 Pathfinders (2 brand new) at the Deck Box last night. Thanks to Michael Jones for coming out and bringing his Melee-Tastic Mage. We'll have some APL-Fletcher faces at ACE as well this weekend, so make them feel welcome!
As Galen has mentioned, he's looking to run some Intros this coming Friday night at the WT. Hit him up if you're interested.

That is all,

I could go for an early game on Monday.
Good morning fellow followers of the Open Path...
I am in need this morning of one Pathfinder to complete a party of intrepid explorers setting off for the FIRST TIME tonite in Society play. I have a home-based Pathfinder group that wants to start Society play, and we're running Intro Step 1 for them tonite. Unfortunately, we had a last-minute cancellation, and are in need of one Pathfinder to come join us.
I met the one and only Mateo (of Multiverse AVL and GeekOut fame) last night! It's crazy how easy it is to spread the gospel of Golarion by making copies of character sheets in public places...
Happy Thurs the Day, y'all!
Yes I do... well sorta... enough to run. For me it depends on who shows up...

How did my maps work?
GMs will have free admission badges waiting for them:
Everyone else, the admission is $5, and there will be a ton of other awesome stuff to check out before and after the games. All RPG tables are running from 12pm-4pm, additional tables will be run at the Wyverns Tale afterward. Alternatively, the Emerald Lounge on Lexington Ave. is holding an after party with all kinds of awesome bands.
See you guys at ACE!
Who do I talk to for my badge when I get there?
Event Number: 17086
Allison Gaines is the ACE coordinator and will have the badges. She may be running around like crazy tho, so I would anticipate they will be waiting for you at some kind of information table, but just let anyone on ACE staff know you are a GM for the gaming area and they should be able to point you in the right direction. Email me if there are any issues: ksheuer at gmail dot com
Interesting question ... not sure of the official stance on this one, but I would think that while the number of strikes would not increase(as that would be tied to the levels in Monk), the attack bonus would as it FoB is basically TWF while unarmed (-2 penalty ... same as two light weapons with the TWF feat).
Of course I could be completely wrong on this one and the bonus for FoB could be limited by the Monk Level as well.
Dear APL crew (and others),
What a blast that was yesterday. I know of at least three GMs (including me) who are very hoarse today from all the gaming - a fabulous day all around. Thanks to each and everyone of you who took place in the set-up, the ACE event, or the ACE after-event, or all three!
A special kudos to our very own Thorynn who shouldered the heavy load of wrangling the role-players. Hats off to you, sir!
My favorite moment yesterday: As I was wrapping up the Kids' Table Beginner's Box Adventure, one of the 4 youngsters (the Rogue) looks at me and says, "Well, is that it? That's not the end of the adventure, is it?"
I told him "HELL, NO." And then I steered him to the Wyvern's Tale table to pick up some dice.
Exciting news! Our own Zylphryx will be starting up a Project: Swallowtail Pathfinder Adventure Card game test-group in our area! We are currently hunting for 1-2 devoted card game players who could get together and play-test this new Paizo project at minimum 10 times in the next 6 weeks. Yup, that's a commitment, but if you're interested, send me or Zylphryx a PM and we'll get you hooked up! And if you want more info before committing...HERE!
I know y'all are still recovering from yesterday, but we don't rest on our haunches long here at the APL! We've got our GM 101 session coming up in 2 weeks (Friday, October 26 at the WT). There is another PFS Game Night coming up at the Deck Box on Tuesday, October 23rd, and of course, another Game Day at the WT on 10/27. Want sign-ups? HERE YA GO.
Finally, MACE is coming! Charlotte will be the host of this upcoming convention from November 2-4. Tons of games, tons of gear, tons of fun! A number of your APL GMs will be running games there, and of course, the VC of VCs, Mr. DC2 will be there as well. Check it out!
Ok, enough for me, my Girtablilu! I'm off to find some hot tea and a lozenge.
As each game runs about 1.5 hours on the average, I think we could feasibly be looking at three games per session (or about as long as as a PFS scenario). Days are up for discussion, but during the week I am limited to evenings only; maybe two evenings per week with 2-3 games per session.
I did get to play test this at Paizocon 2012 and it was pretty cool. The table I was at won our game ... though barely. If we had not taken it on the turn we did, we would have lost it outright.
I do plan on trying this out with some other folks as well, so there should be plenty of play testing for this originating with the APL and surrounding area.
