I’ll start building the threads again in a couple of hours and get the show back in the road.

Since you rebuilt the tables, I won’t try to call Customer Service to day to get them flipped. Thanks again for doing this, Shifty.

I am not at any of the affected tables, but now that I have caught up on the last couple of days of this thread, I want to say how inspiring the leadership of this Lodge is. Seriously, HMM, Redelia, Shifty, all the other GMs who volunteered to pick up these dropped games (and those who couldn't because you're running multiple tables during Outpost) - you make the organized play campaign worth participating in. Thank you for all of your efforts in making it all come together (and HMM, if I had checked this thread yesterday, I would not have bothered you about that nothing question while you were dealing with this - thanks again for responding so quickly).


AMEN!

Seriously this community is simply the best. Big ups to Shifty. See, it's actions like this that really justify GM stars to carry over to 2.0. At least for 4 or 5 star GMs IMO.

Three stars, start with one. Five stars, start with two.

There's already precedence for that kind of breakdown on the Faction Journal Cards.


I just noticed this. I would throw myself in the ring as well if you are looking for GMs to run these games. I was going to start up a new PFS PbP soon, but I would rather help resolve one of these tables if they still need a GM to help out.

Thanks Blazey, the great community here and in Castomir station has already stepped in. Seems you need to be quick if you want to rescue orphaned games these days ;-).


I'll admit I was tempted to offer to help too, but didn't think that it'd be a good idea given current loads.

Yeah, same. 3 games is really about my max.

I have to admit PbP has sort of saved me from suffering harder depression that I otherwise would be with the new edition announcement.

My initial instinct was to cut bait and start winding down but Outpot has kept my head in the game and reminded me of why I do what I do in the first place, oddly good timing that.


Thank you to those who have come to our rescue!

At first I was upset over the timing of this announcement just after OutPost started, but now I dig it. I am so happy that OutPost is helping people see that the game goes on, no matter what campaign changes are coming for us.

Yeah, when I was referred to this community I was getting burnt out on Pathfinder as I had no local groups to arrange games with but after joining up I ended up loving Pathfinder even more. I may be apprehensive about PF2 but as long as the lodge is still going I am joining all three systems (PF1, PF2, SF). One of my recent groups is fantastic and going through a long list of scenarios together...which is the reason I decided to start GMing PbP games here.

TLDR; The PbP lodges and community members are amazing.

Just to bring it back a bit--this seems more like a discussion now than a series of recruitment posts.

So, they JUST finally updated the Additional Resources with Ultimate Wilderness, unfortunately not in time for OutPost. Anyone starting a PFS game soon that a level 5 character (a rebuild, in case you're wondering) would fit into? :-D

I can probably cover something. Is there a type of scenario or a level range you're wanting?

Silver Crusade RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16

I have played pretty much none of season 8 or 9, so I'm up for most anything that a level 5 character can play in (and not be out of tier). As long as it's not that one where you have to swim the whole time. I don't have an aquatic animal as one of my shifter's two aspects. LOL


Hm...what about PFS 8-18: Champion's Chalice I (4-5 subtier)? Get a party and we'll rock it up.

Side note: Thursdays are busy for me (live PFS after work). Chances are good that I won't be able to actually start anything until tomorrow.

Silver Crusade RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16

No problem at all!

Anyone else want to join me in Netherpongo's game? Subtier 4-5! :)


Pathfinder Card Game Subscriber

Sure, I've got a Level 5 Evangelist Cleric who could jump in.

Silver Crusade RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16

Cool! Sounds like a good group so far! Anyone want to jump in with something Arcane to round out our very Divine- and Wilderness-focused group? :)

Scarab Sages

Hello, thanks a lot GM Netherpongo! I would also like to join but do not have a character in tier so would like to play a 4th level iconic if that is ok. ;-)

Thanks

Silver Crusade RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16

Nice! Alright we have a table, though we'd still be happy to accept another 1-2 players!

Recap of our players so far:
Cartmanbeck (Human shifter 5)
Greenclaw (Evangelist cleric 5)
Ingrge (Urban ranger/zen archer 5)
Zaarah Katsu (4th-level pregen)


I would like to play too but I would need to use an iconic. Maybe the Psyhic?

Grand Lodge

I can bring a character to play for no credit if you wish. I enjoy the scenario quite a bit.

It would be a sorcerer as to bring some arcane to the group. (I will have to check chronicles to see if he's level 4 or newly 5)

Sound good, Netherpongo?


Looks like a fun group!

Don't think this is permitted.

The only time you can play a scenario for no credit, is to help make a table legal (numbers-wise).
Though its possible those rules may have changed, I suppose.

Scarab Sages

Pathfinder Maps Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

You are allowed to play a scenario for 0 credit any time you like as long as the GM doesn't mind, with the main exception being that people playing for actual credit have priority for seating.

Actually, it looks like EvilMinion is correct, unfortunately.

PFS Guild Guide wrote:


In certain circumstances, you may replay an adventure you
have already completed. The following rules determine
when replaying Pathfinder Society Roleplaying Guild
adventures is legal and what benefits you can gain from
replaying. When using a replay credit, you may earn no
more than one bonus Chronicle sheet per adventure.
Minimum Legal Table Size: You are permitted to
replay an adventure in order to meet the minimum legal
table size, with the following stipulations.

Notify the GM: You must inform the GM that you have
already played the adventure or run it as a GM. GMs are
encouraged to be as flexible as possible when replaying
an adventure is the only method to run a legal table, but
a GM has the right to deny replaying an adventure to
players if she feels uncomfortable running an adventure
for players who have foreknowledge of the story.
No Spoilers: Spoiling plot points or using insider
knowledge to affect game play is grounds for the GM to
remove players from the table. You should be very careful
about character knowledge versus player knowledge. If
you are concerned about possible spoilers, take the GM
aside and ask her how she would like to handle it.
Rewards: Replaying to make a legal table doesn’t earn
any rewards. The Chronicle sheet for the adventure is
a placeholder. It should note that the scenario has been
replayed for no credit and award no gold, Prestige Points,
Fame, XP, boons, item access, or any other benefits or
disadvantages. You must track consumables, purchases,
and conditions acquired by playing the adventure. This
is the only exception to not having two copies of the same
Chronicle sheet assigned to one character.
GM Star Replay: As a GM earns GM stars, she gains a
limited ability to replay adventures (see Chapter 3: GM
Basics). Note on the Chronicle sheet that you are using
one of these limited replay opportunities (for example,
“GM Star Replay #3”).

There are no other mentions of replays for no credit being allowed.

Silver Crusade

The language in the guide only talks about replaying the scenario "to meet the minimum legal table size." I don't think you're allowed to do it otherwise.

Okay, so this is our table at the moment:

I'd love to get my Transmuter wizard (1st level) into a game. I wrote a guide and all, so I figure I'd better try it out. :-)


Netherpongo, if you will also run the sequel I would love to join for that one. I have a character who played part 1 and missed part 2

Grand Lodge

No worries! It's a fun scenario! Best of luck, and I hope you win the Chalice!

Tarondor (and really anyone else who has written a guide), would you be willing to post announcements when you are going to play a character that is relevant to your guide(s)? I can't speak for everyone else, but seeing a character in action is the best way for me to really learn where they shine and where they don't. I'm sure at level 1 a transmuter wizard is nothing special, but around level 5 and onward I'd love to observe a game or two.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Well, to be honest, I've never played a Transmuter! I'll be testing out that theorycrafting like anyone else who reads my guide. I did do a great deal of research and consultation, but I've yet to see it in action. Now I want to do that before it becomes Overcome By Events with the advent of PF2.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Maps Subscriber

Looking for new players to PBP or PFS to join a new player table. If you are (or know someone who is) new to the format or game, send me a PM. Will muster once we get minimum table size.

Sovereign Court

DM DocterEvil, is your table going to be teaching oriented? If so, do you mind if I dot in and follow along? I have two new to PbP players at my table and I would like to improve my ability to help them through the learning curve.

One of my biggest suggestions for a teaching table is to make sure you have one (or maybe 2) 'mentor player.' You want someone who can show by doing how to make and format a good player post. Usually, I recruit this one experienced player by PM, so that I can be sure exactly what I'm getting.


DM DoctorEvil. Hey I'm still pretty new to the whole PBP format and would really enjoy a good table to play at.

The party above can find their campaign here:

The race for the Champion's Chalice.

Magabeus, for now I'm avoiding the question of whether I'll do Champion's Chalice II. Even under good conditions, that's a long way off and there's no guarantee that the party will hold together or want to continue on. If you want to follow the thread as we go, you're welcome to do so (no spoiler concerns since you've played it, I suppose).

As a side note, Chalice I & II are barely related to each other story-wise. This is one series that I don't recommend that people make great efforts to play in sequence.


Looking for 2 2-4 level characters, Standard, to play the Battle of Bloodmarch Hill. It is the 1st of the Giantslayer AP. We have a dwarven cleric and an elven investigator. So they need a melee person and probably an arcane caster of some sort.

That was quick! Slots are filled!

I'm looking for a PFS Game. Is this one big thread the best place to look, or do the individual threads work better?

The Exchange

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

This is definitely a great place to find games. As we are currently in the middle of an online convention the games may be more scarce than usual but they still pop-up.


This is the first place to look for a PFS game. A warning though, games usually fill up quickly.
