Continuing to Fill the Ranks

Monday, November 14, 2011

As we continue to expand Pathfinder Society to areas where players are looking for organization, it is important to me to find the right people to serve as ambassadors of the game, to present a positive light for new players, and to try to bring veteran players who have left back into the fold. Three more Venture-Captains have been chosen to fill those roles.

The Venture-Lieutenant program was established just a few weeks ago but we are already seeing the positive results from it. One of these is the promotion of Tracy Windeknecht. She served a short time under Mark Garringer when he was a Venture-Captain of Indiana. Since Mark has stepped down, I have chatted with Tracy and have utmost confidence she will pick up right where Mark left off and continue to grow Pathfinder Society in Indiana.

I am also excited to add two new areas to our Venture-Captain regions. The first is Virginia. Paul Rees has a unique region due to the high population of military in his area. Pathfinder Society is a perfect mesh for gaming interest due to deployment schedules and transfers. But Paul is not just taking care of the coast. He is there to help all of Virginia.

It also is exciting to add our third Canadian Venture-Captain, Brent Jans. Edmonton already has a strong core of Pathfinder Society players. In truth, Brent and several other people were already doing a terrific job organizing Pathfinder Society in that area. After talking with Brent, and hearing some of his ideas, I am excited to see how much more Pathfinder Society can grow in this area of Canada.

In addition to the three Venture-Captains above, we have added the following Venture-Lieutenants to help some of our current Venture-Captains reach out to areas in their regions that are either too far away to cover on a regular basis or where there are too many locations in a region to cover at all. They include the following:

Chicago – Brad Ruby
Connecticut/New York – William Wadhams
Los Angeles – Brian Darnell
Minnesota – Andrew Christian
New York/New Jersey – David Santana
New York/New Jersey – Vincent Colon-Roine
San Francisco – Joshua Archer
United Kingdom – Rob Silk
Vermont – Myles Crocker
Washington D.C. – Bruce Chang

We are still in need of additional Venture-Captains in some regions and you can find the list right here. If you’re interested in applying, please contact me after reviewing the application process in the previous link.

Welcome aboard to all my new captains and lieutenants!

Ahhh, I get you. Are you on the Pittsburgh or Philly side? I'm sure we can steer your towards the closest VC/VL who can work you you to get something going in your area even with a lack of volunteer leadership. Do you have a game store in your area? If not, how about a bookstore, or library, or perhaps a grocery/department store with a cafeteria area? Heck, you could even organize a game at your house, but without knowing the other players, I can see wanting to play it safe.

Honestly, if you like/d Living City, Living Greyhawk, Living Forgotten Realms, or any other organized play system, you will more than likely enjoy PFS. And if you are familiar with PFRPG already, there isn't much to learn.

Closer to Philadelphia (Harrisburg, actually)

I have a few Pathfinder home games I play in currently. I was just hoping to maybe sit in on a PS game or two to see what is about and then maybe give it a try.

I am definately very familiar with the Pathfinder RPG :) The problem is I have no experience with any kind of organized play - I'm aware in general terms of what Living City, Living Greyhawk and Living Forgotten Realms are but I've never played any myself. My games have always been home games.

Oh well, I'll just keep my eyes open - sooner or later I'm sure PA will get a Venture Captian or two and then hopefully I'll start to see more PS activity. :)

You didn't play any PFS at PaizoCon?!?

Oh well -- we'll rope you in to a few games next July! :-D

If you feel like trying out a game of PFS, we have a weekly game in Philly at Redcap's Corner. It is an evening game which may not be optimal seeing as you're coming from Harrisburg, but if you do feel like making the drive, you'll most certainly be welcome. Just call in advance to make sure that the game is still on and not cancelled when the store is moving in January. (I'm trying to find an alternate location for the game to move to during that time.)

Of course, if you don't want to make the drive back to Harrisburg at night (perfectly understandable), there's two cons around the area that offer PFS despite the fact that they're both LFR heavy. MEPACON is a twice-yearly con (http://www.mepacon.com/). The fall one happened recently, but there will be one in the spring. RegulatorCon is a yearly con that happens in the spring. (http://warhorn.net/reg-con-2011/ - This is the old one, but they make a new warhorn every con) So if you can wait until the spring, there's a couple of cons with a couple of tables of PFS each slot.

And on topic with the thread - Congrats to everyone, especially David Santana!

I believe NYC Venture-Captain Art Lobdell has been supporting events in eastern PA - specifically Scranton and possibly Philadelphia.

Call it a friendly annexation of territory. The man's got reach.

And greater New York must have living space!

Myles,

It hasn't been Carnage on the Mountain for about a decade. It is Carnage by the Lake now.
