I have a question. I mean no offense when I ask this, but was bloodbound proofread? I got the kindle version and I'm loving it. Half way through it now. I ask if it was because I keep finding all these grammatical mistakes as if a word processor was messing with the wording of sentences or something. It's completely possible that this is a normal thing for novels. I have only recently started getting into reading as entertainment, so I don't have a ton of experience with that. I read liars blade and city of the fallen sky before this one and noticed maybe one or two little mistakes. Bloodbound is another story 50% through the book. It seems to be about every chapter where you'll run across a word or two not conjugated correctly as if part of the sentence was erased and then rewritten. This could be a problem with just the kindle version, I really don't know. An example would be like "stilled prayed" instead of "still prayed". It's not a huge mistake or anything, but it's enough that as you're reading, you stop a moment to process why it doesn't make sense.

I can understand a gm having rules. You as a player have the option of just not playing because of their expectations. The problem was that it wasn't the gm that caused my issue. It was another player in the game that was acting like the gm, telling all of the newbies a strict set of his own rules as if he was so amazing to play with that he could make demands on everyone else.

Unfortunately I'm in Arizona, but I do appreciate the offer. It's good to see my first experience was not the average. Nullpunkt directed me to the pfs google community and I may even be able to play tonight, so I'm looking forward to it.
Yeah I dunno what the guy was thinking. I had originally remedied the situation by letting someone else play in my place. The only problem with that was that I never played, which defeats the purpose. It was a poor decision that lead me to still never having played pathfinder other than pbp which is not the fastest way to get your feet wet. If the situation happened again, I would probably just ignore the grumpy people and make sure the gm was cool with everything.
Sorry nullpunkt just saw your reply. I sent a pm.
Yeah I've started playing 5e on roll20 since I posted. I've learned a fair amount about how these games work, but I know pathfinder has a lot more to learn. I've been a little confused trying to learn both games at the same time with no prior experience, but I have 18 or so hours logged playing 5e, so I at least know a little now.
So I was in a pfs focused group online and there was a guy that wanted to gm a pfs game for the new players. So I talk with the guy and he's cool with me making a certain character because of what everyone else was bringing. He knew I was new and all that.
Is this commonplace to happen, or is this what's really expected of new players to pathfinder and pfs?
Hey guys. I'm 29 from Arizona. Pretty much brand new to tabletop type games, but it's looked like fun for a while. I'll have plenty of questions, so I'll apologize in advance.
Is there a way to follow this thread so I get alerts when something is posted?
Hey everyone. I'm totally new to tabletop games but I've wanted to play them for quite a while. Snatched up what I could on humble bundle immediately. I have a couple friends I might be able to play with in the future, but I'm gonna look for more people to play with on the message boards as well.
