In the year since the post, our area has not seen attendance fall off. If anything it has increased. Of our members we have one person who plays D&D5 org-play. Either they are playing it really, really, wrong, or it is an abusably broken game. (Something about the druid summoning pixies to turn the whole party into T-Rex who then rofl-stomped an encounter they were supposed to run from, and the whole party got 10x the exp they were supposed to get, and some of them went up 3 levels from that one encounter.)

I find many old PF guys looking back to pathfinder after playing 5e for a bit. Also, many new players get going for a couple months and taper off. Many seem to wish they had more options or find when they've mastered the system, the shine is gone and they're left wanting.

I also miss paizo and their support. Wotc seems to have just slapped the AL together and let it coast. Many adventures are pretty flat.

Very interesting post. I've been playing and DMing encounters for a while now and I think there may be some misunderstandings here. Encounter games run at the same pace per hour that full 5 hr session games do. I could easily see this adapted to PFS by just DMing each 5 hour session in two to 3 iterations. I know as a DM of encounters, it can be 3-4 weeks before I get any DM rewards for an adventure. Not a huge deal because I understand we're moving at a slower pace. So players would get their chronicle after two sessions vs one. Missing a session would sting a bit, but it does in encounters, to a lesser degree. Maybe give half an xp and the portions of the chronicle earned.

Reading Plague of Shadows right now. Been pretty good so far, story is moving along nicely. Also trying to catch up on my RPG reading. Working on the APG (yes, I'm very far behind).

Robert and Thea, just got a chance to check out the site. As a returning DM after a 15 year break, your site is incredibly helpful. This is a great contribution to the hobby.

Losing a scenario is not a loss if your characters are still alive :D

I'm doing the same thing right now. I'm giving it a go with Lem, Seoni, and Valeros.

Good luck with your game.

2 people marked this as a favorite.

I could see a team of kobold played as one player. That could be really awesome. Their basic attack could be all 5 or so kobolds mauling a target. As levels go up, they'd get more efficient.

The RP aspect would be interesting to keep track of, but I'd give it a go in a home game, it at least sounds hilarious.

I played a minotaur way back in 2ed DnD, it was so fun. I get the charging and goring can get OP pretty quick, but for me, it's worth the work :)

Am I correct in assuming Unchained is not allowed in Core?
