Hello, Online Peoples!

You may have noticed that we have recently removed a number of tables from the PbP Gameday VIII spreadsheet listing. These were tables with only 1 or no players signed up. With Gameday just under two weeks away the decision was made to remove these low signup tables in order to better consolidate and fill out the tables that remain. All of the GMs for the affected tables have already been notified of this decision.

If you are a player please check the table listing to see if this change affects any of the games you have signed up for. But fear not! We still have a number of PFS (1st) Core and SFS tables with available seats as well as a few PFS (1st) and PFS (2nd) games with available seats - and we would love to see those seats filled. So if you have a character suddenly in need of a new home for Gameday, check out the list to see if anything strikes your fancy! :)

Cheers,

Anyone using herolab notice a problem with AC Calculations.

I created a champion and it gives me a AC of 19

Base +3 Dex +4 Misc +2

My calculations

Misc (Leather) +1 (Shield) +1

Dex (18) +4

Base (Trained) +2

Where does the extra +1 in the base come from?


Trained (a proficiency) is +2, but it adds your level so at level 1 that is +3.

Proficiency is a system that measures a character’s aptitude at a specific task or quality, and it has five ranks: untrained, trained, expert, master, and legendary. Proficiency gives you a bonus that’s added when determining the following modifiers and statistics: AC, attack rolls, Perception, saving throws, skills, and the effectiveness of spells. If you’re untrained, your proficiency bonus is +0. If you’re trained, expert, master, or legendary, your proficiency bonus equals your level plus 2, 4, 6, or 8, respectively. -CRB page 13

Okay that makes sense, though I can't find the Add +1 for you level in the Book. Can you give me the Page number?

All I can find is:
Armor Class = 10 + Dexterity modifier (up to your
armor’s Dex Cap) + proficiency bonus + armor’s
item bonus to AC + other bonuses + penalties
PG. 274

It doesn't mention level

At first I though I was getting a size bonus for being small.


I did. I quoted the section in the CRB and gave the page number.


M

I see that, but it doesn't say anything about a bonus for your level. Just for being trained (+0/+2/+4/+6/+8) and I can't find it anywhere in the CRB.

And I believe thats the case cause the Pregens stats support it. I just cant find it in the book.

Ahh. God I feel Dumb. It just didn't click no matter how many times I read it. I blame sleep deprivation.

Thanks for that slap. :)


Lolz, no worries. I have misread rules for many games and even got into arguments about them. It happens, all is well.

***Announcement***

As of today (Tuesday, August 20th) we are no longer accepting table submissions for PbP Gameday VIII unless you have already mustered a legal table on your own. As long as you have a legal table you may still submit your game using the submission form under the Other Recruitment heading. You may also continue to recruit for a table that is not full even after submitting your table to the table listing (i.e. a GM finds 4 players & submits the game - you may still look for 2 more players to fill the table.)

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Less than a week to go, woo!

Cheers,

Hey GMs,

I recently sent out a GM email for PBP Gameday VIII. You can find a repost of the information in the official PBP Gameday Announcement thread.

If you did not see my email, now is a good time to check spam filters! These emails are chock full of useful information, so we want you to be able to read them!

Hey Everyone,

I have some unfortunate news. I regret to inform you all that we will have to postpone Gameday VIII by 2 weeks.

This would place our new dates for Gameday at: 09 Sept 2019 - 17 Nov 2019

WHAT IS GOING ON? WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS?

As most of you are aware, the majority of the GM’s have not received their scenario support for the Convention to include a good portion of the Specials. With Tonya occupied by other duties this weekend, we realized as a team that we are very unlikely to see the remainder of scenario support drop by Monday the 26th. Multiple avenues were discussed and what seems to be the best solution is to push Gameday back by two weeks. This will allow enough time for the GM’s to receive their scenarios and prep them.

BUT WHAT IF WE ALREADY HAVE OUR SCENARIOS, CAN WE START THEM?

Please hold off until the new start date to be able to eligible for your boon rewards. I understand this is a large inconvenience, we are doing everything we can to make this work. Part of that is to have everyone one the same start / end times rather than scattered.

We apologize for the inconvenience that this may cause, but we want all our GMs to have a chance to shine.

HOW DO I NOTIFY MY PLAYERS?

Go ahead and post the news to your tables. Feel free to copy this email if you wish. We will be posting notices in all the PBP lodges as well as the Gameday VIII Announcement page.

I know this is not what we hoped to do, and I’m sorry. Thank you for understanding that we’re scrambling to fix this.

If you have any other questions please don’t be afraid to ask.

-Tyranius

Well, two were officially announced by Paizo this week:
Joe Pasini included me in the Alien Archive 3 Designer Diary blog -- which also includes Kate Baker, Natalie Kertzner, Lu Pellazar and Jessica Redekop. I got to do three creatures for AA3, one of which are the Dirindi mentioned in that blog. Writing for AA3 was a great experience. It was my first Paizo credit!

Then on Starfinder Wednesday, Jason Keeley mentioned that I did a Starfinder AP backmatter article on Psychic Magic for the Attack of the Swarm AP. It'll appear in AP 23.

★ ---- ★ ---- ★ ---- ★

By the way, we have a lot of talent in this lodge. Our own Kate Baker is one of the AP adventure authors for Attack of the Swarm. She wrote AP #22, The Forever Reliquary. I cannot wait to see that one. She's an absolute rockstar.

The PBP region is really lucky because we have so many wonderful authors who do PBP. Adrian Ng, Scott Young, both Nick & Chris Wasko, Tineke Bolleman, Rosc (Nate Wright) and Meloriel (Jessica Catalan) too. There may be others I might have missed. Our format attracts creative people.

A Changing of the Guard

Hey everyone --

I have really loved being Venture Captain of the Play-by-Post region of Organized Play. I came on board as a Venture Lieutenant way back in November of 2016, when I helped Jesse close out PBP Gameday V! I can honestly say that I have the best region in all of Organized Play, full of imaginative role-players from all over the world.

But I have become increasingly busy as a freelancer (yay!) and want to give my freelancing more time. I have decided to step down as a VO on November 1st, 2019 -- on roughly the third year anniversary of me becoming an online VO. I feel the time is right. Like a Starfinder First Seeker, I imagined this as a short term gig where I implemented my vision, and helped online organized play prosper.

My vision for the region was pretty simple: I was going to make online play a friendly space for newcomers and old hands alike, and help those who don't do PBP understand our region better. I think that I've achieved these modest goals.

During my term of office a number of great things happened:

  • Online became a region of its own
  • Play-by-Post expanded its kingdom into new lodges and the Play-by-Discord format
  • We added new conventions, each with its own style
  • I recruited an amazing team of VOs, who all work hard to make this region great.

    The good news is that one of those VOs, Derek Larsen (aka Tyranius), will become our new VC. Considering how much work he already does for this region, the transition between us should be pretty seamless. Supporting him will be our other VLs, Christine Bussman and Michael Hallet, and all our wonderful venture agents. The online VO team has always been a cooperative effort shared amongst many hands, and we have several weeks to ease the transition.

    The other good news is that you won't be losing me, not really. I'm just transitioning roles. I'll still be a GM and an outspoken advocate for online play. I'm never giving up on my PBP community.

    I love you all!

    And I want to offer a huge thank-you for everything you have done over the years. The amount of hours you put in is phenomenal. It's (I suspect) a something thankless task most of the time, fixing up other peoples problems and dealing with things that others have not been able to.

    So while I'm sad to see you go, I totally understand why you might want a bit of a break and to be able to focus on other things.

    Thank you so much for ...everything.

    Thank you Hmm for all you've done! I joined the PBP while it was under your watch and in my view, you've been a grand, tireless and respected pillar of the community. I couldn't say thank you enough.

    Tyranius, I'm happy to hear you'll be taking over! In reading Hmm's post, I was literally thinking to myself, 'Tyranius should take over' before I even got to Hmm's words confirming this to be the case. And that's because of all the amazing work I've already seen you do for the community. Thank you for picking up the mantle!

    I will say that it has been exciting working with you, and I have really watched this space grow in the last 12-18 months due to your great work and marshalling the team.

    It has come a long way since Magabeus and I went off and ran Year of the Shadowlodge Multi-table on these boards as a 'community event' and people weren't sure it was even allowable, and Jesse was right behind us clearing the path so we could make it happen. Sure we ran a few more events, but then came the raft of great events and we went from one 'official' event, and one 'Shifty and his mates' event into the all year extravaganza beast we now have.

    Great work, and you will always be remembered as the powerhouse that kicked us to the next level.

    Thank you for all of your work and your efforts, HMM. You've made it look easy, even when I know it wasn't. Your leadership will be missed. However, if it means more cool game content and, possibly, more opportunities to play at one of your tables, then the loss of this VC, still feels like a win!

    Congrats, Tyranius! I know the on-line region is in good hands. I've been in multiple games that have benefited from your insight and encouragement and look forward to the future! (And you were patient and helpful in taking the time to teach me how to navigate Discord! Now, if I can just remember all you've taught me...)

    ♫ She was born in the wreckage of her writing career
    Coming home to a place she’d never been before
    She left yesterday behind her, you might say she was born again
    You might say she played as she never had before

    When she first came to Flaxseed
    She’d thought her words had gone astray
    Feeling lost and hanging by a song
    But she reached for adventure, she learned to dare
    She learned to help, to lead, and finally to belong

    And now it’s time to kiss her Captaincy goodbye
    We’ve seen it raining boons from on high
    The glitter and the show lights as the dancers flow on by
    Bid the work goodbye
    (Such sweet sorrow)
    Bid the work goodbye
    (Not coming back tomorrow)

    She learned to improve from every GM she’d seen
    Always new ways to make the game flow free
    And they say she got crazy once when she tried to skirt the sun
    Treasuring her escape in her memory

    Now she rides with companions through the stars and streams
    Seeking grace in every step she takes
    Her sight has turned inside herself to try and understand
    The friends she never will forsake

    And now it’s time to kiss her Captaincy goodbye
    We’ve seen it raining boons from on high
    The glitter and the show lights as the dancers flow on by
    Bid the work goodbye
    (Such sweet sorrow)
    Bid the work goodbye
    (Not coming back tomorrow)

    Now her life is full of wonder, she’s grinning ear-to-ear
    The words are once again her friends
    She’s telling her stories as she once did before
    She’s back on path though not as she’d once planned

    And now it’s time to bid her Captaincy goodbye
    Open the curtains toss those flowers high
    I know she’d be a poorer girl if she’d never tried to fly
    Time to say goodbye

    And now it’s time to kiss her Captaincy goodbye
    Friends around the tables, and everybody’s high
    Bid it all goodbye
    (No time for sorrow)
    Bid it all goodbye
    (No more a VO)
    Bid it all goodbye
    (Maybe a small hello)
    Bid it all goodbye
    (It’s last call - oh)
    Bid it all goodbye
    (There she goes)
    Bid it all goodbye
    (And learn once again to grow) ♫

    Thank you, everyone. The hardest part of a filk is finding the right song to match the mood of what you want to say, especially one that people will recognize. Once the song clicks in my brain, the filk kind of writes itself. John Denver's Rocky Mountain High is so beautiful - joyous and just a little whimsical and sad. It just fit.
