It took me a few seconds to realize what I was reading in my email... I won't spoil it, I will let you all read it.

Hopefully it inspires some!

Hmmm... I know my email is current. Is everyone not getting these?

Got mine, are you mail setting set to allow PFS mail?

I'm guessing that with all the participants the emails are being sent in waves.

I received mine.

Already set. I never disabled it. Actually, never knew the setting was there until just now.

Got mine 10 minutes ago

I haven't gotten mine, Matthew. So, I'm assuming the waves thing must be correct....probably.

Yup, got mine just now.

Same here.

Got mine shortly after 11 here.

It may just be for people with Grand Lodge faction characters. Please comment if you have recieved one and do not have a GL character. Looks like I am incorrect.

Liberty's Edge **

nope, nothing yet.

Scarab Sages

I saw it, and immediately knew what it was, but, I had no idea who Ambrus Valsin was! (But, you know, what more can you expect from an Osiriani silk and rug merchant?)
I'm glad that his title and such was included! Otherwise, I would've had to have looked him up! There's a bunch of questions I have, but I don't want to ruin it for anyone ... so:

Question about the email:
So, after a little search-fu,. I discovered (I think) that the Grand convocation is an RP Event/adventure being run at PaizoCon this year?

I thought that this was a really cool thing ... I loved the idea of an in-character letter. I wish it had been addressed to my character name, rather than my IRL name (it sort of broke verisimilitude), but, I guess there's not a way to do that, other than sending one to every character. I was hoping to have gotten one from Amenopheus, the Sapphire Sage, since I am an Osirion player ... but, still, it was super cool. Especially after the recent threads like Cledwyns-Confection-Castle and the speculation in this post: Mondays-Blog.
Glad to see there's a little more IC development.
SUPERcool!

I don't have a GL faction. I'm pretty sure it will reach everybody in time.

I do like this idea. Finally breath some more life into this "living" campaign =v).

I was just wondering the same thing. I've got one of each faction, so we'll see if I get any others today...

I don't have a Grand Lodge Character, either. Just Osiriani, and Scarzni.

It looks like they began going out just after 8am (West Coast time ... so 10 Central, 11 Eastern.) They hit the ground running at the Paizo office this morning!

That would make a difference. Osirion and Lantern Lodge only, so if I get one... I'll let you know.

I've gotten mine and I'm not a part of the GL.

Scarab Sages

Same. My only character is Osirion, I just got Ambrus's message.


I've gotten one and I've never actually played Pathfinder, much less PFS.

I was quite puzzled by it; I don't have enough of a context to understand the email I received.

Ah, but looking at your account shows you have a PFS character registered. :) Maybe a mistake, but there it is.

(PS You should really try out PFS some time, its a blast!)

Liberty's Edge *****

*Has a Grand Lodge character.*

*Has (obviously) received emails from Paizo before.*

*Has not received an email from Paizo today.*

*Isn't in a timezone where it is 11am yet.*

Yeah, I JUST saw that... I have no idea why that's there, I didn't make it.

I'd like to play PFS but severe anxiety issues. Me having a panic attack at a table wouldn't be enjoyable for anyone.

*** Dedicated Voter 2014, Star Voter 2015

Got mine. I do not have a Grand Lodge character. Would love to speculate about some of the consequences re: the arrangement being turned down- but will hold my tongue for now...

Silver Crusade ****

Got mine. This makes sense to me.

Grand Lodge ** RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32 , Marathon Voter 2013, Dedicated Voter 2014, Star Voter 2015

Still waiting on mine. I got hopeful when people mentioned 11am, but that time has come and gone for me. :(

Grand Lodge **** Venture-Captain, Texas—Dallas & Ft. Worth aka Thorkull

I got mine, Jiggy. I expect that you will be receiving yours "soon".

*waits anxiously*

Grand Lodge ****

Remember, we're all Pathfinders. Ambrus runs the Grand Lodge, so even if you have joined one of those misguided "factions" I've heard so much about, he's still ultimately a representative of the Decemvirate, and the host of the Grand Convocation.

Spoiler:
This is an invitation to attend the annual Grand Convocation and meet with fellow members of the Society.

It's also a plea for aid in repairing the damage done by that unsubtle oaf from Almas...

I hope to meet many of you there, on my first trip to the Grand Convocation from Magnimar.

Got an email, said WTF. Could someone shoot me a PM with some explanation or background to explain this in-character roleplaying missive that I got blind sided with.

Thanks.

Silver Crusade ****

I hope it isn't a PaizoCon exclusive thing... I would really love to participate, I had a moment of "This is flipping sweet" when I read the e-mail.

Jiggy ... you know what I heard a guy in the grocery line say just a little while ago? He said that it's for humanoids only. Chubby little green dragons don't get letters from the Pathfinders.

<impish wink>


It's standard industry practice to not try to send a large number of emails all at once. That's the sort of thing spammers do, and it's one of the quickest ways to get one's email servers blacklisted. Given that, it's not surprising that there's been a delay in people receiving the message. All this means is that Paizo's sysadmins know what they're doing (I can't say I'm surprised).

Now, what I'm curious about is if everyone received the same message.

Grand Lodge **** Venture-Captain, Texas—Dallas & Ft. Worth aka Thorkull

Ok, based on what we're seeing, this is going out to anyone that has a registered PFS character whether they've played or not. If you're not participating in Pathfinder Society, then it doesn't really apply. It's setting up the story arc for Season 5, so you'll see repercussions from this throughout the season.

Yeah ... I am hoping the same as well. Referenced is a PaizoCon event, but I don't know if there will be other stuff for the rest of us, or if it's PaizoCon exclusive.

If it is, frankly, I'd rather not have gotten the letter, and gotten all excited about it - I don't know if I am going to get to go to PaizoCon, or not.

Liberty's Edge *****

Got my message. This was pretty cool, lol.

Shadow Lodge ***

Anyone else do a facepalm over his (the guy who is the subject of the email) answer... as if it these were real people with real political implications? Think I'll go add this to the "You play to much when..." thread.

Got mine.

I'm catering the Convocation, and I can't control who attends and eats, but nothing here changes the fact that Blakros family members are banned from the Confection Castle until they utterly demolish that entire damned museum.

This is AWESOME! I know this is exactly what PFS should be doing!

There will be cakes of the finest sort, catered by none other than my very own Confection Castle, conveniently situated right outside the Grand Lodge in Absalom.

You put words in my mouth as though I weren't watching you. Your attempts at humor fall upon deaf ears, however. Perhaps you should state only the truth instead of using me as a mouthpiece for your own delusions.

All will be answered in good time, Pathfinders. Until such time as we lay all upon the table, I urge you to steel yourselves for the task at hand. The Decemvirate needs you.

The way I hear it, you're quite popular to be used as a mouthpiece. Exactly the type of whoredom I've come to expect from so-called nobles here in the western lands. Take a lesson from honorable Tien women and get some class.

As always, the Decemvirate can count on me to accomplish whatever mission is required. My service is ever yours.

Oh, Ambrus, while you're here: do any of the Ten have food allergies I should be aware of, especially nut or wheat?

LOL!! Ha-hah!! Hilarity ensues! Great stuff!

Scarab Sages

The thick, broad-shouldered Osiriani merchant looks about, seemingly with curiosity, as if other notables and faction leaders are about. Finally, he covers his bald pate and is escorted out by his seneschal and porters.
