Hope to see more of the crew of Nakonechkin Salvage someday!

Since we've been talking about venue connectivity and raise dead, does there need to be a change to the guide about clearing negative conditions before the adventure ends?

Guide to Organized Play wrote:

The Pathfinder Society takes care of its members by removing most ongoing nonpermanent negative conditions and repairing agents’ damaged gear to the condition it was in at the start of the scenario.

The following conditions are not automatically removed and must be cleared from the character before the end of the adventure or the character ceases to be available for organized play:

* Death
* Permanent petrification, polymorph effects, or negative conditions
* Curses

Seems punishing for those at venues without connectivity if this gets locked behind the AcP system, especially if the forthcoming faction benefits are part of the AcP system. Or does the AcP system let you apply boons to characters who are marked dead?

The check-in doesn't need to happen pre-session. Check in could easily happen at the session's conclusion. "Congrats on beating the baddie! If you want rewards, here's the session id. Type it in so I can associate your downtime to you."

most groups use the same event code for the event, you'd have to designate everyone there a reporter for the entire event to do that currently.

Although if you're proposing a change to how the website works so its like a google sign in form, that would be awesome , but again... paizo website.

Yeah, the proposal would be new development. But maybe we don't have to rely on current Paizo web tech/constrained dev time. Perhaps an outside solution could be developed as part of the "Encouraging use of community developed tools for tracking and character management" idea in this blog or tools developed by the Organized Play Foundation task forces.

By way of example, here's a demo of the solution I use to have chronicles generated/distributed and the session reported before players leave the table/discord chat: https://youtu.be/Clb7Trip0NU (spoiler: SFS 1-22 chronicle). It's very close to the idea I proposed. The UI could be refined a bit and there's some edge cases it doesn't handle yet, but the point is that a tool like this is already saving me a ton of time and providing a better experience to my players.

That solution could be further enhanced if it could integrate with Paizo data for authentication, organized play character data, and automated reporting. With the Organized Play Foundation task force route, maybe the Organized Play Foundation could be considered a Paizo partner like Lone Wolf/HeroLab and Roll20 to allow players to authorize access to their Paizo data.

Looks like Linda's signature might fit better between her comments and James's intro. It can be a bit confusing to parse who's talking where here.

I'd love if the bylines were at the top of the article. Many articles are written in a first person perspective and I always have to scroll down to see who the author is to get context before continuing to read. Would have worked here to know that the first perspective was Linda and then the additional parts were by different authors.

Is there a possibility for non-venture officer contributions to the task forces? I do not have the inclination for normal venture officer duties, but would volunteer my software development/IT skills to any custom tooling outcomes of these task forces.
