Honestly, it's an international organisation, there's HQ, and then there's regions.

Not only that, but they have their own training facility (The Masters of Spell, Sword and Scroll are basically Deans and Subject Head Teachers of a private university essentially).

I think if anything, a clear organisation chart would be nice, especially when it comes to the regions. It'd be nice to know who's operating where (especially for PF Infinite content makers).

ABSOLUTELY. Because it is a fact universally acknowledged that swimming in duck ponds is a thing every Regency aristocrat must do. (I am so amused at how many movies since the first Colin Firth Pride and Prejudice have featured a wet-shirt scene for the comely gentlemen. Bridgerton has done it once a season so far.)

I am all for more PF related "comely gentleman in a wet shirt". Last one I saw was Count Arendae of Mendev (after my [Wrath of the Righteous CRPG] Knight Commander "introduced" him to his desired poetic outcome of "love interest bathes under waterfall"; by shoving him in). That is entirely not enough!

Charity dinner benefitting a Crusade/concerted holy effort to do something war related? Hrrrrm, feels very season 4 of PFS1E

But that's okay, season 5 was a blast.

Thank you thank you thank you for Paizocon specials being at 10am Pacific time! I could not sign up for these in previous years when they were at 7am to accommodate east coast US players! Though still virtual, it's one of the only major west coast cons to get access to these and this year being the last season of Starfinder 1st edition is extra special.

*cries in international* Aus eastern time makes it 3am. Never let anyone say I'm not dedicated. T.T

Speaking as the volunteer head of the Academy program for kids and families at Gen Con, I can't say how happy I am to see this content. Having read the first of these ("The Winter Queen's Dollhouse"), I can't help but be excited about having these all ages adventures.

I should add that we will be looking for volunteer GM's for the Academy program. If you enjoy GMing and teaching kids, teens, and sometimes moms and dads, HAVE I GOT A JOB FOR YOU! Please watch out for volunteer submission information for Gen Con in the near future. In the meantime, please feel free to reach out to me if you have questions about the Academy program at Gen Con.

Is that coming to GenCon Online by any chance? *puppy dog eyes*

If math is the barrier, dice rollers might help.

I always bring a (dollar store type with big buttons) calculator to IRL tables, cause I'm bad at math.

It can be really useful for kidlets who want to join but also may not be great at math (or adults who may wanna try but are also bad at math). It's a great accessibility tool to have lurking in a IRL GM kit, even if we generally all have phones with inbuilt calculators.

Oh, okay, Undead Shark Swashbucklers (or maybe Bards) are now a really cool thing I didn't know I needed in my life either.

Gonna need some really big, very feather-y hats on them though. As we all know; the bigger the hat, the more powerful they are.

My runs, I've had a lot of "oh no, please, I do science as a job IRL, I don't want it [implied getting it not completely functional within mechanics] in my fun down time" OOC. I know that can be a problem for a lot of players who work science jobs (the face palming I've heard from one friend whenever radiation comes up makes me a little sad for them).

I have a lot of people who are excited by the possibility of magic, or megastructures, and the potential crossover that can provide. A lot of potential archaelogy either way. These are more my personal vote bias leaning. My RL profession has me rubbing my player hands together and going "Seeing new sites in the galaxy, preferably big things? Yes yes, good, good."

But yeah, Aurora has some backing too. I wouldn't say she's, from my understanding, exclusively social media. More... she's gonna go on a marketing blitz (social media is merely a part of marketing). She said she wants video games of Starfinders, and plenty more. Marketing could indeed be in person, but, that could also potentially be more like SFS 5-15 Beta Test, but for lower levels.

Ever notice there's a "why are so many scary things hauling themselves out of the various oceans?" plot thread ongoing in Starfinder. I just hope it's not Ragadahn next.

Also, fey investigating children's joy sounds so adorable and prime for mischief. Can't wait to play that one. If only my Fey witch was not level 8, alas.

But these are options that are already there. Those races were introduced via the race deck, so they exist in Starfinder already. Likewise, some of the most classic Starfinder races like Lashunta and Triaxian and Ysoki existed in Pathfinder first. And there has been a vocal group of Pathfinder players on the forums who keep hoping they'll get Lashunta or Kasathans in Pathfinder 2e.

Since we've had one major time travel event across the systems, it makes even more sense that some of these ancestries will available in the future (or the past!)

Besides, it doesn't break the game to have options that players can use their ACP to build.

Hmm

I gotta agree. I love playing my "Elf with a hair problem" Triaxian Paladin PFS1e. There's a bunch of AP connections to "alien" people, so they're not new. Just unusual.

If people don't enjoy 2e, I'm kind of of the opinion, you can stick those species in home games. Home games, you're only bounded by GM opinion, and honestly, I don't think most home GMs are gonna bat an eye at a grippli when Jububnan (basically 1 legged hopping toads) exist.

But ACP as a across the two systems pool would be nice, cause I'm the opposite direction... *eyes army of Sprite character ideas, and too many fun PFS2e options and many SFS points*

So excited to meet the new candidates at GenCon!!

One of the things I remember from the last go around electing a First Seeker was a sort of 'tension,' between voting for what your character(s) want, and what you as a Player want. Like, while none of my Society heroes particularly agreed with Tara Nova's "let's make those jinsuls rue the day they picked a fight with the Starfinders!" agenda, I thought, as a player, that the a tale of teetering on the brink of revenge could've been a fun Season! There's also a number of Society players who have multiple PCs, who may have different thoughts, and different preferences based on the characters.

Anyways - is it possible for each person to have two (or even three?) votes? And they can decide how to divvy them up themselves? You could spread your votes around based on what you as a player want vs what you as character(s) want, or go all in on one thing you feel strongly about, or assign one vote per PC, or whatever else!

I wouldn't say 1 vote per character, because that wouldn't be fair to the new players or players with fewer characters.

Preferential voting is a good way to solve it. I feel much like "it's what my character would do" situations, you're the one figuratively steering the boat. I voted last time on what I thought would be fun Society plot direction. Didn't get it.

With preferential voting, I can weight my continued fun vs who my 1-4 characters like their ideas the best. As my 1-4s are currently a fey space pirate, a hellish Talent Resources Manager, a delusion mystic and a Skittermander who's backpack is a cooler full of mostly beer, I don't think their opinions are neccessarily the most... well thought out or cooperative.

Meh. ARPG seems like a terrible fit... was hoping for a proper CRPG using 2E rules. Owlcat, come baaaaack :)

Owlcats likes to drop hints for future games, considering they dropped major hints for

WoTR CRPG:
Second Darkness
and some more minor ones for
WotR CRPG:
Iron Gods
and considering the assets they'll be building for WH40K would go into a certain AP rather well, I don't think they're ending partnersip, as Mark Moreland said. They're just expanding.

Games might comes out a bit slower, but they'll likely be growing their team.

As long as their meme game stays strong, it'll be survivable.

I gotta say, very excited to try a Paizo co-op game that no one other than a dev team has to prep for.

Diablo 1 was my first ever computer game too, so I do rather fancy the look of it. I'm not a massive ARPG fan, but I'll give it a go before I have an opinion on that part. If it's Very User Friendly like Diablo 1 and 2 was, I may have a new regular game to play.

For now, I will be content with my existing admittance boon upgrading to a stat boost when the new season kicks off. That's exactly the kind of motivation I need to get my space moth priest of the space moth goddess back into the rotation.

Of course, whether bringing more people "to the light" is advisable for mystical moths remains to be seen, but that's what his other boon is for!
