A friend just noticed that my copy of the Starfinder Armory, which I purchased through subscription, is missing pages 66-67, with pages 74-75 in their place. Pages 70-71 are also missing with 78-79 in their place. How can I get an updated print copy with the full set of pages?

Thanks,
Kurt Wasiluk

I've noticed in my past couple posts that my 1 star, 1 nova, and venture agent status are no longer showing. Is there something wrong or is there a setting that I need to change?

I see we got an answer from John on maps for 1-25. Any word on maps for this one?

Thurston, are you able to share anything on maps for this one and 1-25? Thanks!

Tonya, looks like your U-Con visit should have 11/9 as the start date instead of 11/16.

On pages 7 and 8, there are notes on PC placement for the map on page 6. I see one of the PC placement locations marked on the map, but where is the “second marked area, representing more efficient approach method” supposed to be? Thank you!

I did RPG and All dates and left the search bar empty. I then went to page 78 or so and saw all the evening Starfinder Society stuff. I hope it works for you.

Bob, you just helped me figure out how to schedule the 7PM ones. You can't select a specific date but instead have to select All. By doing that I can see the events that end at 0:00AM.

Pathfinder has landed in Warren Michigan! The book is beautiful and well worth the wait. Nice job to everyone at Paizo for everything you've done to pull this thing together.

That sucks... The store I went to let us pick what we wanted, but to get the "free" Beastiary, I was required to buy at least $20 of other stuff. I'm very happy I got the product I was looking for, but feel a bit taken.

OK, I'm kicking myself here. I should have thought to post here previously. I'm organizing Pathfinder for the Pandemonium conventions. The last one was in September, the next one is in January/February and then there's one in May. You can spot them on Warhorn (warhorn.net) sometimes referred to as Pan Frost (Jan/Feb), Pan Mayhem (May) and Pan Fury (September). Pandemonium is a game store in Garden City, MI (NW Detroit Metro area).

I'm also trying to organize the local Pathfinder Society players in Southeastern Michigan into a better connected organization so the GMs can share the burden of eating scenarios for their groups. Right now we have a "Judge's Table" where GMs are invited to sit and occasionally eat a scenario for the group. Then they can go back to their home tables and run the same scenario. If you'd like to join our circle, search for Pathfinder Society on Yahoo! Groups or try pasting this link: http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/Pathfinder_Society_Southeast_Michigan

We have 17 members currently.

Lastly, if I find out there are a lot of interested but "tableless" parties localized in Macomb or Wayne County, I may attempt to organize a monthly game day at either Pandemonium (see above) or Blue Dragon Games in Shelby Township. This is subject to the approval of the store and space being available. Also, I likely will not start until after the holidays because people are just too busy right now.

I realize that I'm posting pretty late in this thread, but better late than never.

Good timing! I was just thinking this morning that things are very quiet in SE Michigan for Pathfinder Society. I thoroughly enjoyed myself at GenCon and have been itching to play more. I'll check out the link above, but am very interested in playing or DM'ing scenarios. Thanks for coordinating!

Not downriver, but at least Detroit area. I'm out in Warren and working in Ann Arbor. I'm hoping to be able to continue playing scenarios in our area!

All of the hundred or so participants were divided into different drow major and minor houses of 5 or 6. We were given character sheets with fairly high level drow members of the houses (average of 14th level at our table). The goal was to get a member of your house to ascend the throne.

Thanks for the reply.

So...

How'd your house do? How'd you do? Did you kill your king?

I didn't kill our king. We seemed to be on a good roll leading a 6 house alliance at one point in what seemed to be a potential massacre. I figured if I could get away from the demon lord I'd maybe have to settle up with him later. But an hour later, I see my king conferring with the same demon lord. "Psst, um, king? That's the demon who wanted me to kill you..." "Yeah yeah, I've got everything under control" Another example of the total chaos and uncertainty going on.

We failed in our attempts to take the throne and then were locked out. Our king received a special boon that let him potentially take the throne after it was initially taken by causing a member of the winning house to betray the new king. Unofficially we can picture how it may have played out, but officially the house that won the throne kept the throne (after about 6 hours of everyone jockeying for it!) and big congrats to them!

I made my first ever trip to Gen Con just for these events and wasn't disappointed. I managed to play all 4 scenarios as Nikara, an Osirion and really enjoyed myself. The scenarios were concise with interesting encounters and opportunities to role-play. The length of the scenarios was appropriate and my groups managed to finish 3 of 4 on time. The faction goals added role-playing opportunities and subplots that didn't derail the main plot. I'm looking forward to further scenarios and hope to find opportunities in the Detroit area to continue the fun. Thank you to everyone involved in providing so many of us a good time.

As far as the Qadiran merchant, if it's the same guy I'm thinking of, he cracked me up over and over. In the Silken Caravan scenario, our DM, Lou, was extremely descriptive in telling us how poor the Qadiran conditions were. But with each dreary, oppressive sentence, our Qadiran friend chimed in joyously in his accent about how good the conditions were and how good to be home. He totally hammed up the role and managed to spin every negative into a positive.

The event was sheer pandemonium, which I mean as a compliment. I may be wrong on some of the specifics, but I'm giving you what I was able to get out of it. All of the hundred or so participants were divided into different drow major and minor houses of 5 or 6. We were given character sheets with fairly high level drow members of the houses (average of 14th level at our table). The goal was to get a member of your house to ascend the throne. How we did it was left totally up to us. We were given huge amounts of detail about the other houses, the city, stone giant neighbors, and many other points of interest and then told to do whatever we want to do. I confess to being overwhelmed at first with everything we were supposed to be taking in and the unstructured feel of it all.

But then everything just clicked. Tables were joining with other tables and trying to attack still other tables. Individuals playing demon lords were walking around giving houses advice or warnings. The various GMs/demon lords/moderators let our imaginations run totally wild. Our house, which handled vermin in the drow city allied itself with a house that are masters of flesh warping and our demon lord facilitated us blending our crafts to create wererats and mutant babies. We then assaulted another house with these mobs. Alliances were made and broken. People were running around and shouting. Some players managed to get into the throne room to try to combat the challenges within while others were blocked out by a force wall. Other subadventures occurred where we were trying to placate stone giants. I was encouraged by a demon lord to murder my king. At first, I tried to joke my way out of it but then, in character I realized that I was being asked by an imposing 12 ft tall demon lord with a whip to do something. And as all this running around was going on Nick and Lou were standing on chairs shouting into a bullhorn with voices of doom telling us all the apocalyptic events happening within the city that changed the ground we all stood upon. Dragons flew over head. The river ran red. Poison gas filled the air.

I confess that I probably only grasped 30% of what was going on (very noisy with 100 people all talking at once), but the event captured much of what I love about gaming: immersion in a setting and opportunities to use imagination. The numbers almost didn't matter as much as the play and interaction. The various moderators were encouraging of whatever nefarious ideas we were coming up with. Our demon lord, Andrew, seemed to light up, the more perverse our ideas became. And the chaos of the room seemed to perfectly mirror the chaos and upheaval the drow city was going through.

I give huge thanks to the designers and all the moderators for creating a very memorable (if exhausting!) experience.
