This is my first time at the con. I was wondering if it is customary to make characters for each game on our own, does the DM usually contact the players with some sort of guideline for creating them ahead of time, or are there pre-gen characters provided by the DM. I didn't see anything for any of the games that I got into.
I hope this makes sense, hehe. I will be able to create characters at the con, so that's not an issue, but would rather have them constructed before hand since I do have the time to do it.
Thanks for the help/advice.
Yeah, sure. Here are the events that I am signed up for:
#3-21: Temple of Empyreal Enlightment (1-5)
#3-06: Song of the Sea Witch (3-7)
#3-EX: The Cyphermage Dilemma (1-5)
#3-19: Icebound Outpost (1-5)
Those are the ones that I am curious about. Thanks for any advice that you can give.
Ah okay, that makes the answer easy then.
You signed up for Pathfinder Society events. Welcome!
You have two options. One, play a pre generated character, there will be at least seven available (fighter, cleric, rogue, wizard, ninja, samurai, gunslinger). Option two is to create your own character. To do so, I would point you to the Pathfinder Society Guide to Organized Play (found to the left under the Pathfinder Society link or at http://paizo.com/pathfinderSociety). We have specific rules for creating your character you should become comfortable with and then bring your own. You can ask us specific questions over on the Pathfinder Society General boards.
Sorry for not elaborating more, I'm on a phone and long posts are hard.
That actually helps a lot, thank you!
One other question; is it OK to use the same character in all of the scenarios, or should I have one for each event?
That was my main question, because obviously, my character won't be level 3 by the time I play that game. I guess once at the con there is chance to trade to another game, maybe I will try that. I will make a couple characters for it just in case, but I would prefer to play one that has some experience in the world and has some worldly possessions. :)
I didn't realize the way the Pathfinder Society games worked when I signed up. I tried to get in on some of the progression games, but they were all full by the time I registered.
I think the best course is to wait and see, for that game at least.
Thanks for the help.
Now that the con is over, I know what you mean! I was not unfortunate enough to have Kyle GM for me, hehe.
He did give some great advice in the GM 101 and 102 sessions though, they were all extremely helpful and can't wait till next year!
Edit: This is Preston btw, just changed my name to my Character that I played... and yes, he survived, sorry Kyle >:)
