Hi everyone! We're a party of five brave cunning adventurers looking for a new GM. We're about halfway through the first book of Hell's Rebels, and would at least like to finish it. We've been playing together for a while, and would hate to say goodbye to our characters and the good vibes we found along the way.

The group is composed of:

Beorn the Divine- half-orc Bard extraordinaire!
'Tiny Litsy'- is probably just an innocent teenager with no penchant for lies and stealing. Definitely not a Rogue
Variel Nightstorm- Magus. Token 'good guy'. Regrets his life choices.
Pollux and Castor - evil witch, don't ask.
Merelda 'The Widow' Widdomeria- Inquisitor of Calistria, will stab and kiss people, in whatever order she fancies.

If you're interested in running (first of all, thank you, you're a star), please reach out to us! We're excited to meet you :)

Hi everyone!

After a few years of playing quite a few characters, APs and modules on Paizo, I'm starting to seriously consider trying my hand at GMing. I've always liked telling stories and roleplaying, and I think it could be a fun experience, if a challenging one.

I live quite in the middle of nowhere, and have never been near a RL group. Not only is there nearly no one I can ask questions to about GMing and how to do it, but if I run anything, it's going to have to be PBP on Paizo. Which is okay with me, but comes with its own problems.

With all that in mind, I have three questions for anyone who would be kind enough to be willing to give me some advice:

1. Because there's no use trying to be ambitious when you're learning to ropes, I don't want to start by running an AP, a campaign, or anything that could get me overwhelmed because of my experience. What would be a great, one-shot module for a beginner GM? (with some room for fun RP, of course :))

2. On Paizo, I've had GMs who used Google Slides for maps, or others that relied on Roll20. I don't have a clue how to do maps, and from what I've gathered, it's often described by GMs as difficult to learn and master. Are there tutorials? Should I use Google, Roll20, or something even easier to use?

3. One thing that is also completely new to me is how to prepare an adventure/module/scenario. Are there any resources I must have and use, beyond what can easily be found online for free (anything on legacy.aonprd, anything on the Archives of Nethys, etc...)?

Thank you very much in advance for your consideration and help! :) I really hope I can get to GMing in the following months (or 2022 at the latest...)

Hello everyone!

Six players and I were at the beginning of the Reign of Winter campaign when our GM suddenly disappeared. We're still interested in playing, and would very much appreciate it if someone could step in.

Thanks in advance for your consideration!
