As a whole, this Resonance business appears unintuitive and unnecessarily complicated to me. I like the simplicity and accessibility of staves; everything else about Resonance appears to be extra paperwork/tracking for what benefit I cannot discern.

Tying Resonance to Charisma appears to be a low blow to martial characters in general. Aren't most martial classes MAD enough already? I fail to see the point of forcing characters to spend Resonance on consumables unless the intent is to nerf martials (and alchemists) even harder.

Why not base Resonance on class levels instead of tying it to a mental stat?

Our small corner of Ohio has been steadily growing over the last 3 months. For years, our weekly events could only support one table. For the last several weeks, we have had enough participants to support 2 PFS/SFS tables, and are on the brink of adding a third table.

We are slowly adding more SFS events, as more GM's and players are becoming more comfortable with the rules set.

This surge in growth has coincided with the departure of a disruptive player, who has been a long-term participant in our local RPG community.

All of our events should be posted within the next week or two.

I applaud the change. Druids have been needin' the love for a long time now. Welcome to the party, Concordance!

I've been attending U-Con since 2012, and I look forward to returning this year. Not to take anything away from the awesomeness of Origins or Gen Con, but U-Con is my favorite convention.

It's big enough to offer a wide range of board games and PFS, without being too crowded. It's also where I played Pathfinder for the first time. I had excellent GM's and got to play with awesome people who got me hooked on the game right away.

It's worth your time to check out if you're in the area. It's affordable and tremendously fun.

So any estimates on when the Harrow Deck will be back in stock? It's not available at any of our local stores (I've been looking for months). I'd like to support our local stores, if possible.

I'd be cautious about this approach, as the experience of the campaign's more active convention GMs doesn't necessarily reflect the experience of someone who runs games at one convention per year and was really hoping for a race boon. Were there to be a special equipment boon introduced into the GM rewards rotation, it would likely need to be offered as an alternative to—not a replacement of—the race boon on offer.

Amen to that. Thank you providing this perspective.

These look amazing. I haven't GM'ed either of these scenarios yet, but I will definitely utilize them when I do.

I will say from personal experience that I find showing up to play a special with pregens that are foreign to me to be a frustrating experience. I am a big believer in preparation, especially when it comes to PFS.

Thanks so much for creating these documents and sharing them with the PFS community.

Well said. I was already a fan of your artwork, now you can count me as an admirer of your perspective-filled prose.

Brava!

The Harder To Kill boon has prevented at least 2 lower-level PC deaths at our tables recently. Our players have always been good about buying snacks, but the program has encouraged some to buy hardback books and board games on PFS nights.

A couple of players have benefited from the Day Job bonus, but most in our group don't play PC's with Day Jobs. Both benefits are definitely appreciated by our player base.

Anyone have an Oread they would trade for an Undine? Needed to complete a Suli...

Silver Crusade **** Venture-Lieutenant, Ohio—Toledo

Same here. This question came up last week on our local group.

Silver Crusade **** Venture-Lieutenant, Ohio—Toledo

Thank you! This sounds like a fantastic program that will energize our local player base, especially those who don't or can't travel to conventions.

Dark green would look great as well. I like the glyph of the open road idea.

So Christopher, what colors would you like to see in a VA polo shirt?

Hmm

I was thinking that you could get purple to match your hair, and I could get gray to match mine.

If we're going for uniformity on color, I will compromise and go with purple.

Maybe this really doesn't matter. Maybe I should give up on the idea and assume that between my friendly manner and my purple hair, people will just find me to ask me questions at most cons anyway.

Maybe I should just make myself a custom pin with "PFS Questions? Ask ME!" on it.

I'll admit that I really like both the look and the visibility of the current Venture Officer shirts, though. They make you super easy to spot.

Hmm

Hilary, I will second your request for VA polo shirts. I think it's a great idea, and I would be happy to purchase a couple to wear at local PFS events and cons.
