Unfortunately, I think you are under the misconception that Paizo is there to promote Organized Play when in fact it is the other way around. Organized play is there to promote Paizo products and book sales! Yes it has a large following and yes is has a rabid fan base, but as other posters have said it is first and foremost an engine to sell Paizo/Pathfinder products! I love organized play, I play and GM quite a lot of PFS/SFS and I'm a subscriber of WAY too much stuff, so I feel your frustration! I'm right there with you, but PAIZO's dollars and sense issues, staffing issues, edition roll issues, ect are not our purview. All we can do is wait, and waiting is often the hardest part.

The ACPs need to be corrected on the My Org Play tab. The number of points I'm supposed to get from GMing at various Cons are not even close to being correct. It normally wouldn't be a big deal, but since the boons for PFS2 are now based and purchased using ACPs it REALLY is a big deal! Also, NO boons for since it went live?! I love the game and the scenarios but implementation and execution are severely lacking!

I'm also wanting to wait till I have explantions and can actually print out the boons from my playtest credit before I spend any.

First off, KUDOS to Heather and the reporting team! The timelines, responsiveness, and reporting in general is head and shoulders above the last two years! I am happy to say that all my tables that I GM'd are entered and showing correct in the system

However, I am missing two games I played in and if they weren't 2nd Ed and worth ACPs I wouldn't bother.

I am missing my Thursday morning PFS2 1-01 Absalom Initiation, and Sunday mornings PFS2 1-03 Escaping the Grave. When I get home tonight I will send an email with the GM's name and # to hopefully help you find the sheets.

Thanks again for your hard work and responsiveness.

I'm sure that Tonya and the powers that be will have the "official" ruling and word for us soon. Until then all we have are opinions and best guesses but no facts. Since the ACPs are not live yet it really doesn't matter for the nonce. Wild speculation seems to just be making people sound angry at each other when no one knows how things will work yet! We will all just have to wait and have patience till the rules clarified.

Most of the criticism I have seen so far, seems to be from people that have not really dug into the new rules and found things like Rysky just commented on. Or they are just taking something they have heard and jumping on the "I don't like it cause its different bandwagon!" I still play PF1, I still play AD&D, so play what you want to, but at least take the time to learn the new rules so you will have educated gripes to make.

Secret rolls in PFS2 take me back to 1st edition D&D when I started gaming. The DM would roll randomly at all times and would seldom tell you what he was rolling for. It added excitement or sense of dread depending on when he did it. I also use to use secret rolls when I DM'd because it kept the players on their toes and increased anticipation! Sometimes I rolled dice behind the screen for no reason just to make them wonder. I will be using secret rolls, because I love how the story can be told a little different if they have a critical fail and because finally what each person rolls matters even if the person next to them hits a 30 on their check. It gives me more chances to involve more of my players in the story and I like that.

You could really use any of the bar flip mats that you have on hand as the players won't know that difference. Pub crawl, ect. Or like Grey said just sketch out a rectangle add a bar some tables ect and have at it! Happy GMing!

The final encounter in 1-03 was not and optional encounter or ambush encounter, it was the BOSS FIGHT. The encounter before it was by-passed by good perception and engineering checks both times I ran it. Even if they would have triggered that encounter, both tables would have finished on or before time. YMMV as it obviously did for Blake.

Hello new person

Unofficial guide here you'll know most of it from having played once but sometimes the explanation gets a little rushed during a game.

You can either wait till your character is level 8 to apply the chronicle, OR you can drop the credits earned down to 720 and apply it to a first level character. I'm a fan of the later option because it gets you out of level 1 faster .

Thanks BNW!

Click create a Starfinder Character at the bottom of the page. Type in the name you would like. This character will be you #(number you were given/activated)-701.

Your session should then show up next to your new 701 character. If you took credit as a level 1 character on the chronicle sheet you were given you can apply it as your first chronicle sheet for that character. If you took it with 8th level rewards(which you shouldn't have) then you will have to wait till you reach a higher level to apply it to your character.

If you have questions, you can ask more on here, or find a local SFS game at a friendly local game store. Or you can look up the volunteer coordinator nearest to you on this website under the organized play tab, then coordinators and contact them!

Glad you had a great experience at GENCON!
Welcome to Starfinder/Organized play!

GENCON was awesome! My oldest Son GM'd his first Society game this year and his first interactive special! It was a very proud parent moment when I over heard compliments from players at his table. It was my second oldest Sons first GENCON and he loved it and loved playing 2e. My youngest was higher than a kite when he rolled a natural 20 and got a Core Rule Book for free! Unexpected icing on the cake, came Saturday night when Tonya presented me with my campaign coin!

A big thank you to all the employees, writers, developers, GMs and players that create, produce, and bring life to all things Organized Play and Pathfinder have to offer!

The Guide is actually on the Organized Play Foundation page. It is now web based, but printable. I have had everything from GenCon reported except my 2e games, so I think it is probably a website build catch-up thing.

I have classic and HLO both. I have the playtest currently but was told I will be upgraded to 2ed when it goes live. The HLO version is different, and has a learning curve for sure. I find that because of screen size there is more scrolling, but once you get use to the layout it is easy to navigate, at least for me.
I'm hoping that 2ed will build and refine on the playtest version. I'm also hoping that they do have the printable character sheets redone and ready before GENCON, because it works great when you have reliable internet, otherwise..... ALWAYS print a hard copy before you get to the table unless you KNOW there is good internet service!

I would do the free demo, so you could see the layout and play with it bit before you take the $35 jump. But that's just me. YMMV

I will definitely give this a look. Already listen to GCP, Android and Aliens and Shield Bash. Watch Critical Role, Oblivion Oath, and will hopefully add this one to the rotation.

I am jadedly optimistic that I may finally get my minis, even if it takes another year to get them! Late is better than never, especially after paying so much money for them.

Thank you to Vic, Eric and everyone at Paizo for working to make this right! Thank you to Sara and the other people in customer service for fielding all the questions and shouldering all the misdirected anger that you have had to deal with even though matters were not your fault and out of your control.

Ran this over the weekend, it was awesome! The players all said they loved it and its a nice kick off for the season. Follow it up with 2-02 like we did and it really gets your second season off to a good start. I can't wait to find out what happens in future scenarios!
