Hey there Pathfinders. I bet some of you are asking yourselves "what's going on this weekend?" ... Well, look no further. For here is an assortment of events to fill your weekend!
Well, your Friday and Saturday at any rate.
Friday August 1
The Midnight Mauler - This season 3 scenario is for tier 3-7. The Decemvirate sends you to the mist-shrouded land of Ustalav to find out what happened to the former Pathfinder Society Master of Blades. In the course of your assignment, you encounter murder most foul ... and unnatural. Of course, what else would you expect to find in Ustalav? There are 5 open seats currently.
Port Godless - This season 5 scenario is for tier 5-9. So when fighting demons, it's good to have those who know how to fight demons by your side, and there are few who know how to fight demons more than the Riftwardens. Of course, there are also few Riftwardens. You must travel to Rahadoum to try to locate several Riftwardens who have recently disappeared within that land. What could be easier? Praise Razmir! This table is currently full.
Intro 1- First Steps: In the Service of Lore - This introductory scenario is for level 1 PCs only ... but may be played repeatedly with new level 1 PCs. Go through Absalom to gather knowledge and get to know the leaders of some of the factions. It's Absalom, what could possibly happen? This table is currently full.
Saturday August 2
Storming the Diamond Gate - This season 3 scenario is for tier 3-7. I am sure you all know of the Hao Jin Tapestry and the private demiplane contained within it, yes? And how the tapestry is the only means of entry, right? Wrong. There is a back door and the Aspis have discovered it. You must secure the gate at any cost. Good luck, I have seen this scenario claim many a PC. There are 3 open seats currently.
The Traitor's Lodge - This season 5 scenario is for tier 3-7. Investigate the sealed basement of the traitorous venture captain who aided the demon assault. Be prepared, basements are not usually sealed without cause. There are 2 open seats currently. Grand Lodge PCs will find this scenario of interest.
The Sealed Gate - This season 5 scenario is for tier 7-11. The Pathfinder basecamp in the Realm of the Mammoth Lords has fallen! With it, the Society has lost a powerful relic and two of it's leaders! You must investigate the camp, track down the perpetrators and retrieve the relic. Be forewarned, this scenario was written by Kyle "I will sup upon your tears" Baird. Expect it to be dangerous. This table is currently full. Grand Lodge and Silver Crusade PCs will find this scenario of interest.
Scars of the Third Crusade - This season 5 scenario is for tier 1-5. The Third Crusade was marked with bloody inquisitions, the fiery drive of which was never fully quelled. Now the witch-hunts have flared up again in eastern Mendev ... and pulled several fellow Pathfinders in as the focus of the hunt. You must proven their innocence ... if they are truly innocent. This table is currently full. Silver Crusade PCs will find this scenario of interest (and it does directly contribute to the Silver Crusade storyline).
The Waking Rune - This season 4 scenario is for tier 7-11. The Runelord of Sloth slumbers, but if the Cult of Lissala has their way, not for long. Do you have the ability to defeat Runelord Krune, or will you be little more than a minor annoyance he must step over as he reclaims his former dominion? There is 1 open seat currently.
The Stolen Heir - This season 5 scenario is for tier 1-5. In order to secure aid and backing for their expeditions into the Worldwound, the Society sends you to aid in the location of the daughter of a wealthy and powerful citizen of Sauerton. Will you secure her father's goodwill and support? This table is currently full. Andoran and Taldor PCs will find this scenario of interest.
Weapon in the Rift - This season 5 scenario is for tier 5-9. A secret weapon developed during the First Crusade by a cleric of Iomedea may be key in turning the tide of the war. The Society has pledged to reclaim this weapon and has sent you to get it. Did I mention that you are sent behind enemy lines? There are 2 open seats currently. Silver Crusade PCs will find this scenario of interest (and it does directly contribute to the Silver Crusade storyline).
The Merchant's Wake - This season 5 scenario is tier 1-5. A Trade Prince has died, leaving a power vacuum. You are sent as representatives to the wake, but with the struggle to claim the former power of the dead Trade Prince threatening to spiral out of control, can you keep this somber moment from becoming a bloodbath? This table is currently full. Qadira PCs will find this scenario of interest.
And there you have it. More games that you could possibly play. Well, than you could play over two days. As an individual. Ah, you know what I mean. Go sign up at Warhorn!
I had posted on Monday (7/28/14) on the APL FB Group board about interest in a location in Hendersonville. We may have a location but were trying to figure out a date (Mondays or Thursdays) and to see what the possible numbers of folks would be. Right now it looks like 3 available on Mondays and 4 available on Thursdays.
Just so you know, I'm terrible about checking the board here, but the FB Group board pops up on my phone...
(The location is right off I-26 on Four Seasons Blvd going towards Wal-Mart.)

But just to humor you...
Friday August 15, 2014
Delirium's Tangle - This season 1 scenario is for tier 1-5. Way before Torch did what he did (and you know what I'm talking about), he called in a favor from the Society. To find a Minotaur Prince. That he misplaced. In Absalom. And where do you go? Into the maze of tunnels below the city, where else? There are 2 open seats currently.

Saturday August 16, 2014
Fortune's Blight - This season 1 scenario is for tier 5-9. Go to the River Kingdoms. Kill a green hag. Retrieve a sundered, ancient sword. Simple and straight forward. Except for the former owner wanting it back, the spirits of those killed by the blade wanting revenge, and the Society wanting it made whole by the time you get back to Absalom. Yep, simple and stright forward. This table if currently full.
The Goblinblood Dead - This season 3 scenario is for tier 1-5. So the Society has made use of the abandoned roads of Isger for smuggling valuable relics since the Goblinblood Wars ended a decade ago.

The Sanos Abduction - This season 4 scenario is for tier 3-7. You are sent to aid a fellow agent in the Sanos Forest with their research into the fey of the woods. Nothing like an easy mission. And this is nothing like an easy mission. There are 3 open seats currently.

Is that a bargain or what? You remember that old saying about sounding to good to be true ... There are 3 seats open currently.
Among the Living - This season 0 scenario is for tier 1-7. A night at the opera, what could be finer? Very little. Unless that theater was once a temple and a cult takes interest in it. There are 4 open seats currently.

After all those missions poking around their museum to fix the problems their acquisitions cause, you will finally get to relax at a nice quiet wedding ... yeah right. It's a Blakros wedding.

What’s going on this weekend … I seem to get asked that a lot for some reason. Probably because I always answer the question. Well no more, I tell you! No more! I’m going to start just … oh who the hell am I kidding.
Here’s what’s going on this weekend.
Friday September 12
Assault on the Kingdom of the Impossible – This season 1 scenario is for tier 1-5. So an Aspis agent is jacking shipments of relics, artifacts, and what not on the island of Jalmeray. They even went so far as to kill a Venture Captain (but fear not, it was not Luth). Head out there and put a stop to his shenanigans. There is one open seat for this table currently.
Shadow’s Last Stand – Part II: Web of Corruption – This season 2 scenario is for tier 1-7. So back in the day, before the Shadow Lodge stopped being a faction and before it first became a faction, it was a splinter cell which caused all sorts of trouble. The leader was unknown … until this scenario. Yes, it is the appearance of The Spider (and no, we’re not talking Boris the Spider). Head to Almas and find The Spider’s whereabouts and true identity. There are 3 open seats for this table currently.
Mists of Mwangi – This season 0 scenario is for tier 1-5. Cursed monkey idols from the Mwangi Expanse beig shipped to the Blackros Museum. What could go wrong? After all, the Blackros Museum knows how to safely handle material lik… BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Yeah right! It’s the freaking Blackros Museum. This table is currently full.
The Quest for Perfection – Part III: Defenders of Nesting Swallow – This season 3 scenario is for tier 1-5. So I have said it before and I will say it again, the mini game in this scenario is pretty awesome. You also are in Tian Xia looking for some relic and fighting off tengu bandits, you know, as the RPG part of the scenario. ;) And this is the finale to the QfP trilogy; I strongly recommend playing through with the same PC. This table is currently full.
Saturday September 13
Fingerprints of the Fiend – This season 0 scenario is for tier 7-11. It’s a race against the Aspis Consortium to locate the fabled city of Rachikan. Of course, the person who was looking for it was the nephew of a retired pathfinder. and he went missing. So you get to go to Cheliax and find him … and hopefully the lost city. There are 2 open seats for this table currently.
The Tide of Twilight – This season 3 scenario is for tier 1-5. Every time I see this listed, I feel I must give warning. THIS IS A POTENTIALLY DEADLY SCENARIO! OK, that’s out of the way. Evil druids, people turning into beasts … you know, all the makings of a memorable adventure. Just play with caution. This table is currently full.
Port Godless - This season 5 scenario is for tier 5-9. Head to Rahadoum to find out what has happened to several Riftwardens who have recently disappeared there. If you succeed, the Society could have found additional allies for their endeavors in the Worldwound. There are 2 open seats for this table currently.
Trial by Machine – This season 6 scenario is for tier 1-5. So I have it on good authority that one should NOT play this with a brand new level 1 PC. Consider yourself warned. Absalom has had many failed invasions leaving behind countless siege towers. One of these, lead by the Numerian “machine mage” Karamoss 1000 years ago, is currently use by the Society as a training ground. Unfortunately, someone did not turn it off completely … This table is currently full.
The Citadel of Flame – This season 1 scenario is for tier 1-5. So a cult which preached self immolation as a means to achieve paradise was presumed to have been wiped out decades ago. Both the forces of Sarenrae and the cultists were engulfed by a massive sandstorm. Bet some of your PCs will wish it had remained buried … this one has some tough moments if you are unprepared. There are 3 open seats for this table currently.
The Quest for Perfection – Part III: Defenders of Nesting Swallow – This season 3 scenario is for tier 1-5 … ever get that feeling you have been somewhere, seen something, typed something before? Yeah, so look above in Friday … and the minigame is very cool. ;) There are 3 open seats for this table currently.
Glories of the Past – Part II: The Price of Friendship – This season 4 scenario is for tier 5-9. Welcome to Orc Town! Yep, head to the orc city of Urglin to find a guide to take you to the orc capital of Urgir in the Hold of Belkzen. Nothing like being surrounded by a bunch of orcs who would just as soon see you lying dead at their feet and not being able to swat at them with your murderhobo stick of sharp stabby stabbing. There are 2 open seats for this table currently.
The Hellknight’s Feast – This season 5 scenario is for tier 5-9. It’s a party! Break out your shindig gear for a formal banquet hosted by Michella and Damian Blakros and prepare to hob nob with the movers and shakers of Absalom. Oh yeah, you need to try to convice the movers and shakers to support the Society’s endeavors in the Worldwound. Which you would think they would be happy to do, but some folks just go “meh” when they are told about demons ravaging the countryside … This table is currently full.
First Steps – Part I: In Service to Lore – This intro scenario is for level 1 PCs only. You remember those good old days when you were just out of the academy and got sent on you first mission that did NOT involve a minotaur? Relive those times again! The ones without the minotaur, I mean … There are 2 open seats for this table currently.
There you go, now go sign up at Warhorn!!
