MilCon 2010 went great this year. We ran 16 table of Pathfinder over 2.5 days.
Thanks especially to Tessa, who really set the interactive apart with her awesome rendition of Osprey (especially the wounded Osprey complete with makeup and blood!)
We had a full table of newbies who had never played Pathfinder before who came in Friday first slot and played together through Sunday. We gave out a total of 9 new Pathfinder numbers over the weekend.
We ran a total of 9 tables of 1-5 or 1-7 mods, 3 table of 5-9, and 1 table at 7-11 and 3 tables of the interactive (tier 1-2, tier 5-6, and tier 10-11).
I apologize for the confusion at times while I tried to organize both Pathfinder and other RPG games but I really feel that everyone had a great time.
One last thanks to everyone who showed up. You all made the Con the success that it was.
If you intentionally fall, have you used a move action?
We ended up with a heated discussion on this and I could find nothing in the rulebook to support either argument so if someone could give reference, I would appreciate it.
There is a monthly Pathfinder Society weekend gameday in Austin, TX.
Details on upcoming games and events will be discussed on the North Austin Pathfinder Society Yahoo!Group
Also, sign-up for games is done via Warhorn at:
We are ironing out a consistent location, but right now it looks like the majority of games will be at Dragon's Lair Comics and Games, on Burnet Road.
The next Game Day will be June 12th and we will be running 2 low level mods (#29 and #30) and 2 mid level mods (#16 and #27).
I would just like to post one more time on the gold lag that you get from DM'ing more often than others. In my area, I am one of the few (for various reasons) that DM. When I do get to play, I find that my characters are way behind on the gold curve compared to others of my same level. I don't see why the first time you DM a mod, one of your characters can't get credit for full gold and PA points. This would even out the playing field for those who DM quite often. Just my 2 cp.
I am assuming that my answer at the table I ran is correct but you know what they say about assuming.
There are items on the Year 0 Adventure Chronicles Items Found section that match the cost of the item in the 3.5 OGL books and not the Pathfinder Core rulebook. I assume that these costs should be adjusted to match the Pathfinder Core Rulebook, correct?
Concerning Lore Keeper from the Knowledge Domain:
With Gencon only two weeks away, I thought I would post to see who from the Paizo staff gets to go this year. It was really cool last year meeting the people who turn out the two greatest mags in the world, Dungeon and Dragon. I'm really looking forward to seeing who is there this year.
My party is in the middle of the Malachite Fortress and has just fought Kozmojen. They ended up killing him and his pet and then performed a fighting retreat to get out of the Malachite Fortress alive. My question is what will the remaining hobgoblins do now that their employer is dead? Will they clear out or see the Malachite Fortress as theirs now and fight to defend it? What does everyone think?
I got an interesting request from the druid in the group that I DM for. The party was on one side of a pit trap with hobgoblins on the other side. The druid has a monitor lizard as his animal companion. The druid had the fighter of the group throw the druid's lizard across the pit and have it attack the hobgoblins. I was unsure how to handle this. I made the ftr make a strength check to throw a 50lb.(???) lizard and he made it. The sticking point is that there wasn't a square for the lizard to land in so he had to land in the same square as the hobgoblin. I went ahead and let him do this and let the lizard make a normal attack as I wasn't sure how to handle this and didn't want to spend the time trying to figure it out but I thought I'd post it up here and see what others would do in this situation.
I see that Dungeon will once again be at Gencon. I was wondering which of the staff, writers, and artists will be there? I know that Erik will as I believe that he is giving a seminar but who else? I would really like to shake the hands of some of the people who put together the wonderful mag that is Dungeon.
