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.

Also, another reminder. Stay at Home in Washington has been extended to EoD of Star Wars Day (May 4th).

May I point to Starfinder APs. I've mainly played those in campaign mode. And then a chronicle sheet given for each book completed. So, it can be sanctioned, maybe not as PF1 standards of sanctioning, but as a reward for completing it in campaign mode. So, this being the first AP, let's give them time to figure it out and how to decide.

Considering I live near Seattle in the 'East Side'. I'll be glad once the pandemic subsides. Too many of us have health issues and it's a concern how it will interact with each person. I agree with this call. I'll continue to blame Datch for this one also.. :P

Be safe all.

Perhaps a mini virtual Paizo-Con on the same weekend as a possible replacement?

I probably would have made a Psychic Detective in 1E.. But, never got around to it.. Not sure if Psychic has been replaced by Occult or if they do decide to add a 5th magic source. And, I wouldn't mind if the Investigator has multiple sub paths.. 1) Alchemy, 2) Occult (or Psychic), 3) More martial/skill focused.

*Bump* Thinking of an Undine (thanks to a boon) Xenodruid.. So, I'm curious about this as well.

I enjoyed my PF1 Investigator.. Now, granted, I took the archetype where I got to use Int for perception, sense motive, and UMD. My problem with studied combat, is that it was mainly restricted to melee for most things. And I prefer range. But, for a non-rogue skill monkey, I enjoyed the class. Tho, in PF2, I'd like to see a subclass/school of thought, that would swap out alchemy for occult focus. For those paranormal style investigators.. Guess we'll find out early next month..

There was talk at one point of them having an API. I'd love to see an API, where you can use the API to download your character into an app and use the app for when network or other issues present themselves.

Otherwise, my Office 365 is subscription based and I don't have an issue paying a small subscription fee to keep the servers up.

Yup, still waiting for my shipment to change from pending to shipped. At least delivery to my ship to location is fast.

And there's still 3.5 hours left until 5 pm PDT. So, might still get lucky that it goes to ship status today.

Congrats John, after playing at tables where you GM or were a player, my wife and I look forward to seeing the development that comes out for Starfinder. She absolutely loved it when you GM'd and allowed her halfling character use an externally ship mounted gun to wipe away some Jinsuls.

And congrats to Linda.

Fantasy Grounds has account sync for PF1 & Starfinder, so probably will have it for PF2.

There are many moving parts. Planning may have been good, but other aspects may have knocked a gear loose and caused a delay for the rest of the gears down the way. No planning can withstand contact with the enemy. And in this case, the enemy is time.

Well, I looked at the add character function in Organized play.. They have added 2nd edition, but still doesn't let you add a character, since the option for Faction is blank, and won't let you add/save until you choose a faction.

I'd love to see a Starfinder Japanese Anime. But, again, requires funds.

Doesn't help that PF2 is hitting street date in the very near future and the society guide for that will also have to be released. A lot of stuff in a short time. Some of us understand, take your time on the guide, we still have the 1.1 to carry us for the time being.

From another source/location. The Starfinder Society Season 2 Guide was delayed and they are looking for around the 15th as a goal date of trying to get it out.

James, if you have the PDF, would converting to grey-scale work for you in reading it?

From the 2 stores I seen/heard about - The dice were given away a die at a time, and some stores had events you had to participate in to get a pick.

Hoping it'll be up for sale as a set.

Based on earlier about running 2-01. Do you think that is same date we'll see 2.0 society guide will drop?

It'll be out soon, though I wouldn't expect it by any specific date.

Most notably, we're also waiting for chronicle sheets for Skitter Crash and We Be Heroes which dozens of PFS/SFS groups critically need for Saturday.

If I understood it correctly. Origins is the start of SFS Season 2, which is tomorrow. Which is sooner than the chronicle sheets needed for Sunday. Also, I believe J.C. has commented in a We Be Heroes thread that the chronicles will be mentioned during a midweek blog.

Looking forward to the 2nd season society guide. I presume it comes out tomorrow or late tonight since Origins is tomorrow?

When I extract custom maps for printing, and images for showing on the tablet to players at the table, I use:
pdfimages.exe -j <filename> .\images\i
The command line tool listed above is found on: https://www.xpdfreader.com/download.html as part of their command line tool set.

Then I open up file explorer, and go on a mass deletion, as it pulls more than I need. Then I begin the process of converting the file to a printable format. I believe I was using this for the map conversion. http://www.fantasticmaps.com/2012/01/tips-and-tricks-rescaling-maps-and-sli cing-them-up/ -- I mainly use it to remind me of the math. As I use GIMP to take the jpg and rescale it. Then I use Publisher to break it up. Publisher 2016 allows me to make a custom page and will tile it, and I specify a .3" overlap and the hash marks to show where to cut and where the overlap begins. Then I print to PDF and specify letter size.

I would think a different way to have made the pirate a bit more powerful.
1) The Advanced template that was already mentioned.
2) One Magical Ring, but it's an 'Arcane Bond'. Thus, it reverts back to a masterwork ring upon the owner's death.
3) Some spell casting to have given some of the other abilities.. (As the pirate may have had time to precast a bunch of spells for defense).

Now, once a decision for Starfinder Society is made, will they use PFS and have their own channels or will it be a new Discord server with it's own channels?

Scenario: PFS 05-01: Glass River Rescue

Date/Time: Sunday, January 5th, 2014 @ 11:00 AM PST US [-8 GMT]

GM: Robert K.

Game Client: Google Plus Hangout and the Roll20.net VTT

Description:
A Pathfinder Society Scenario for characters of 1st to 5th level (Tier 1–5).

A Pathfinder leading a diplomatic envoy from the dwarven holds of the Five Kings Mountains has gone missing, and the balance of power in a time of war hangs on her rescue. The Pathfinder Society's divinations indicate the agent was waylaid in the theocratic nation of Razmiran, when one of her escorted diplomats failed to pay a requested tithe. Now it falls to the party to enter Razmiran, locate the missing Pathfinder and the dwarven diplomats, and escape with their lives.

Written by Mike Shel.

I'm hoping for 1st-2nd levels primarily as this will be my first PFS GMing.

Actually, I believe Shaman's from OA also get domains.
