With PaizoCon becoming an online and potentially international convention, I can see a lot of people curious about Pathfinder 2nd Edition signing-up to play.
Which makes me wonder how that will work in a Roll20 environment, where you can't just show-up with your character, and details have to be slowly entered into character sheets.
I've been in PF1 games in the past before I was able to find a good FNLGS to play at with some good people on the Eastside of my area. At that time, not everyone bothered with the built in character sheet of the VTT. One may set up macros ahead of time for quick copy paste and just do their rolls via commands. Some VTTs have an import function if you've created your character elsewhere. When I do online, I don't expect people to fill in the character sheets.. They are there if they want to.. If I question their character, usually I recommend having it somewhere online or pdf you can do so.
I don't see any Pathfinder Society modules in the Roll20 Marketplace.
Will GMs be expected to enter the entire module into Roll20 and similar VTT ahead of time and also include the pregens?
Will buying the Pathfinder ruleset on the VTT be required for GMs?
Will GMs get the modules farther ahead of the con so they can enter assets? (Or familiarize themselves with VTT if they haven't used those before.)
Most VTTs, especially newer scenarios, you usually end up putting what you need. Some GMs will go all out, creating all the NPCs/Critters and putting them in the VTT. Other times, use numbered tokens and they keep the stats on a dry erase board and keep track that way. For Society play, I'll put in the maps, I have tokens of different colours and also numbered (for the colour blind). So, someone could tell me they are attacking Red or Creature 6. And, I use the dry erase for tracking HP of the mobs.
