I am not sure how best to flag this one so giving it a go, the influx of so many races across the year+ of Starfinder has meant that they are seeming less valued and less of an interest as a GM convention reward.

We have had the chance to get used to the core book, potential of legacy races as standard, chronicle boons unlocking races, play boons for more races and a stack of GM boon convention races (with double choices).

I would like to suggest that for GM con boons would it be possible to do a race and a featured effect instead of the double boon - I know that we are new to the campaign but we really do have a lot of choices with another Alien Archives on the way...

I know there will still be picks people will want to go for and more characters to build into but it does start to feel like we are gaining these faster than we can look up.

I think this is a good idea. Based on what I have seen, Player reward boons, with items and utility seems to be quite popular. For example, the Hauler Bot was very much the most popular boon at TPKon recently.

I do love playing various races, but I would love the option for more featured effects :-) A choice instead of two races would be a fabulous idea

I also agree, an open ended question would be great :-) Having a space to give feedback without worrying what others would say would be fab

Can I ask- what was the relevance of asking for gender, age etc?
Players at our table wanted to know what the relevance of asking was. The survey was about the game, not the player.

Thanks Chris! :-)

I contacted Customer Services for mine, and they were amazingly quick to respond :-)

Thanks for the heads up! :)

Where are you looking for games?

***** ⦵⦵ Venture-Lieutenant, Online—VTT aka Hels

Hello :-)

Have you checked the google group as well? Many people don’t post all their games on discord. I know that for Tarracon, I will somtimes post links to my games on discord but not every time. The same is true of many gms. Have you checked directly on Warhorn?
As Andrew says, many gms will happily run a requested game.

Drop me a message on discord and we will see what we can do :)

This is fab, thanks for the update and opening up ways to get race boons :-)
Does online play qualify for any of these?
Online SFS has a pretty active community, many of which cannot get to face to face games for a wide variety of reasons. Will they be able to qualify? :-)

Harsk mode? A win surely! :-)

This looks fab. Slightly sad I'm so far away, but maybe one year :-)

Hi Rainzax, I am not sure where one is on the Paizo site, but your local VO may be able to help? The link to the coordinator list can be found: http://paizo.com/organizedplay/coordinators

Online wise, you can find games listed on the SFS Online Collective: http://sfsonlinecollective.com/

Hope the links help :-)

We've been waiting for the PFS Regional Support Package boon in my area for months to no avail are they going to be more forth coming now that the big cons are over and starfinder is out?

Hello :-)

If you speak to your local venture officer, they may be able to help.
The Regional Support Program needs to be requested to the local VO, who most likely will be able to help. What region are you in? The list of coordinators can be found

Hope this helps :-)

I am afraid I can't help with race swap boons, but I can at least direct you to an online con :-)

TPKon is an online convention the Organised play community runs once a quarter. I know a lot of players out there are not able to get to conventions for one reason or another (location etc) but we try to get a good cross section of games going- as well as aim to get a multi table special running as well.

This quarter, it is going to be on the 6th-8th October, running 24 hours a day due to the global nature of the event. The past three have proven to be a fab success, and every subsequent con, we get more and more tables, and more and more players!

The con support deadline is the 8th September. This is the deadline for us to request the scenario for free for you. You are always welcome to still run a game during that period, but you will need to provide your own copy of your chosen scenario.

There are both Pathfinder Society and Starfinder Society games running, and lucky enough to get GM boons on the go too.

There will also be player boons on offer (We roll off on each table to see who gets them. Is usually if you roll a nat 20, nat 1, number the organiser chooses).

If you are interested in finding out more, feel free to drop me a message either on here, or you can contact me on discord:

http://pfschat.com/ And my name is @hels there too :-)

There is an amazing community of online players there. You can also find games/potentially more info on online cons on
PFS Online Collective: http://pfsonlinecollective.com/

With regards to online play in general, I am always around to help if you need a starting hand. I have a generic and VERY basic macro sheet I give out for new players if you need, and can help with online game creation queries.

If PbP (Play by Post is more your thing, Hmm your your lady. She is beyond amazing and if always there to help.

As I say, it may not help with the boon/sylph query, but may help with the second paragraph :-)

Congratulations to the new 5 star gms!!
And congratulations to all the gms who ran at gencon. I have seen so many posts about how amazing the event was. I think I might need to get my act in gear and get over there next year.

This is wonderful. The online community is thriving at the moment, and with a lack of comparable 'regional incentive' style boons (which would be v v hard to put in place, I admit- although a few of us have ideas ;-) ) this is wonderful. Massive thanks to you guys for recognising the online community, and for something which will hopefully encourage more of people online!

Now, back to 'the bad olive' inn for another evil league meeting for me....

Crikey, with the international postage costs and taxes, it is going to double the price to ship it over here......

HOWEVER, I have managed to wrangle it as a birthday present, so..... Come to me, my pretty!

Dan was a lovely guy. Such a fun player, and such a lovely guy to chat to. A real pleasure to see his name pop up on my table. He will be missed by so many people

Fabulous news! I'm looking forward to this even more now.
The Cons in the UK are always fabulous- the Venture Officer team in the UK are incredible, and this can surely only build on the amazing events they organise and support for us already :-)

See you all there!

Great, thanks. I'm sure it seemed obvious, but it is part of a wider plan, I wanted to make sure it would stay PFS legal etc *rubs hands together* Excellent......

Hi all,

Sorry if this is a really obvious question, but I'm not 100% sure.
Does a rapier count as a bladed weapon for the fencer trait? I'm just looking now, and I'm not 100% positive either way.

Thanks guys! :-)
