Possible Sunday or Monday Games in Orlando FL?


Pathfinder Society Grand Lodge


My brother and I are slowly getting into Pathfinder, but it is really hard to get any sort of experience without actually attending a game. There do not seem to be many games going on around Orlando that we could actually attend, and I would not wish my tiny GMing skills on anyone at the moment so we are looking for a game to join. The only days we really have to give for certain are Sundays and Mondays. I know this is a reach, but is anyone doing games on those days?

Hey there!

Orlando is adjacent to my area of expertise, but I do know that there are several active Pathfinders there. Not sure if there are games on your desired schedule, but I know where you can find out.

You should try to join us at Hurricon next weekend and come check out floridapfs.org

There is a lot going on in Florida and we would love to have you be a part of it!


The games that I've seen in the Orlando area so far don't take place in my time schedule.

From what I have seen not much is happening on Sunday in the way of Pathfinder games for Hurricon.

So if Orlando is adjacent to your area of expertise what is your area of expertise? If you don't mind my asking. =0)

Thank you for all your help by the way!

Kristie's the VC for Tampa/St Pete/Clearwater & we tolerate her benign rulership here in Sarasota/Bradenton.

There's 4 PF games in each slot Sunday (9-1 and 2-6), though many are waitlisted. I'll be there all weekend but haven't signed up for anything Sunday morning so could GM a game for lower levels, and there's still room in the 2-6 slot for Intro 3 (which I may end up GMing if needed).

Plus cons are a blast - it's how I got started in PFS.

That sounds fun! Pre-registration is done -as I understand- so I would need to sign up for those slots in person. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I must not know exactly how to read those tables because I missed the PF games on Sunday. Either that or I was looking at the wrong table. It can happen. lol

Thanks! =0)

Yeah, pre-reg is done, I got mine in on the last day. I think day tickets for non-HMGS members are $20, while full weekend is $35 (pre-reg was $25), though I'm not sure about Sunday as it's a shorter schedule. May be worth the $35 if you can make it other days for 9-1, 2-6 & 7-11 slots.

You can try to contact Dominick through the Florida PFS Forum - here's his post announcing Hurricon: http://floridapfs.org/forums/index.php?topic=146.0 - I'd recommend signing up on the site regardless to keep up on cons & regular events.

-Scott


Thanks again!

The full weekend definitely looks like it would be worth it for us. We could probably make the 7-11 slots for both Friday and Saturday and the 2-6 on Sunday. I dropped Dominick a line so we'll see what he says.

I got your line thanks!

We can take walk in players, there is a warhorn site for the schedule.

Awesome! My brother and I will jet over there after work and get our tickets at the door. I guess after that we'll just follow the signs to find the PF tables.

Cheliax ***** Venture-Lieutenant, Florida—Tampa aka Dominick

We will be in the lobby, get you tickets in the conference center on the side. I think its called the Largo room, it is by the bar.

I close the prereg seats today, so select games on warhorn, and have your brother sign up.


My brother is all signed up as well. We know the games we can make so... now it is just a waiting game.

I wish I had known about this a month ago. I probably could have gotten the time off and made more of them. Ah well.

Cheliax ***** Venture-Lieutenant, Florida—Tampa aka Dominick

On the Florida Pathfinder board we have a master Florida Con list. I am glad you found us!

I hope you make it to Hurricon... here is a link to the Florida Pathfinder forum Dom mentioned: convention part of the forum... see ya there!

Hello all. I've been playing Pathfinder since it came out but just now getting interested in the organized play. I just found out on this site about Hurricon 2012 so I am going to try and make it over to Orlando (I live in Cocoa) on Saturday morning for an introductory game.

I do have a question about characters - How does one go about creating a legal character for PFS games? Do you roll it up at the Con before the game?

Thanks,

Stouthart

No problem, go to http://paizo.com/pathfinderSociety

there is a getting started link. I recommend you get the Guide to Pathfinder Organized Play, http://paizo.com/products/btpy84k4

Its all free.

If you prefer I will have pregens for new players.


Thanks for the link, Jack! I am definitely going to come. I will only be able to make the last game sessions of each day, but I will definitely be there!

Quick question... do they take debit or credit cards for purchasing tickets at the door? I thought they might but I don't want to run into any surprises that could have been avoided.

Cheliax ***** Venture-Lieutenant, Florida—Tampa aka Dominick

I think its cash only for walk in players. IIRC there is a CVS or Walgreens near the place.

Looking forward to meeting you

Lantern Lodge ***

Look forward to seeing you Cherriey! I'm Robert and I'm the Venture-Lieutenant for the Tampa region. I'll be in Orlando this weekend for Hurricon, so I'll be there on Sunday as well. We're looking very forward to meeting you.

As was stated, there are several Pathfinders in your area of Orlando. I'm military police, so my schedule is a bit wonky as well. If you can't find anything going on in your area that works cohesively with your schedule, I recommend getting with y'all's local event coordinators and seeing if they can't help you out with getting started. Worst case scenario, I'd be willing to make a trip over y'all's way (schedule-permitting) and try to help y'all out.

Regardless, come on out to Hurricon and let's see if you got the gusto to be a Pathfinder! -smirk-

Speakin' easy,
VL Beazy


Thank you for all your help! I'll be sure to come prepared with the cash (I don't normally carry it around).

Now to just get to the day of! =0)

Cheliax ***** Venture-Lieutenant, Florida—Tampa aka Dominick

I will be there starting Thursday night, and on until Sunday afternoon!


It starts Thursday night? Or are you just arriving here on Thursday?

Lantern Lodge ***

Given that Katie gets off work at 2130, we'll be there late Thursday night, Dom.

Silver Crusade ***

I'll be there Thursday afternoon or evening as well so I don't have to drive 2+ hours early Friday, but the first official Pathfinder Society slots start Friday at 9 AM.

I don't believe there's any games Thursday??? Or is that the super-secret by invitation only game?


It was probably just my invitation and second guessing myself. =0)

Cheliax ***** Venture-Lieutenant, Florida—Tampa aka Dominick

Thanks for coming, they play some wargames Thursday night. I often thought about a slot zero or special game Thursday night.
