Nope, not loading for me either.

A lot has been said and written about the places that peo0e go for higher education in Golarian, but what about the younger people? Where does one study the basics before they go to these esteemeed schools? Is it in a temple of a good who values knowledge (such as Pharasma), in a small local school house, or something else? I know that the rich and noble families would be able to provide private tutors, but what about everyone else?

I’m hearing hard mode, and just like.... wow- hard mode Seeker content is going to be intense...

Thank you for the update! As far as the playtesting, I have a general question - are we going to get the ability to report other pieces of the Playtest, or are we just to use the Lost Star line for all pieces (I am talking about the OP reporting system, not the surveys).

Thanks!!

Won’t most of you have played it already? Though I suppose that since I am half way to my first skitter some of you SF GMs might already have one by the end of GenCon and would want to play skitter shot with your actual skitters. That could be hilarious!
Starfinder's only really caught on in one small spot of my area, but hearing the recording of your PBP panel from PaizoCon has me interesting in trying it out that way. You have a good point about most people having already played it though.

Landon, do you want to try it out in PBP? I have a group of four for PBP Gameday VII, but I wouldn’t mind having a second Quonx join my table. We had kind of decided to leave the last two slots of my games to any latecomers or newbies. Would you like to join us there? Let me know, and I’ll give you a link to the table.

Hmm

Hmm, though I've never done play-by-post, I would love to join if you still have space... I am HOPING to find a table of Skittershot to take Stitch (my Skitter Mechanic) to before he levels out of it - OR if you end up running it Sunday night I would be interested, I just don't know what that will look like yet.

I'm interested in checking out both Starfinder and Pathfinder 2ed at Gen Con, but don't have the 5 hours to invest in an actual game session. It's been a few years since I've attended the convention and was wondering if there will be shorter demos in either the exhibitor's hall or in/around the Sagamore ballroom for either of these.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi! I know for a fact that there will be shorter ones for 2E, and I imagine that there will be for Starfinder, as there were for both Pathfinder and Starfinder last year.

I also want to know about reporting — will we be able to report Playtest games at Origins? How about at GenCon?

Hmm

I can't answer for GenCon, but for Origins we were not, at least as far as for the demos. For the scenario that was offered, we were given a tracking sheet if/when we played.

Sadness for that then. :-( I was looking forward to getting to do this this year.

Are there going to be evening games at scottys this year?
Unfortunately there will not be any evening gaming at Scotty's hosted by the Indianapolis PFS Lodge.

Does this include the Wednesday games too?

We are working on a staggered drop plan. Jason & team have put together a "running the Playtest" guide and written the scenario. We are dropping it to GMs at UK Games Expo first. The GMs at Origins will get their information drop before PaizoCon. The GMs at Gen Con will get it in July.

Thank you for the response and update!

According to Jason Bulmahn's Facebook page, the 2E Playtest material has been sent off to the printers. With that in mind, when should we expect to see that material (as well as the scenario) dropped to the few GMs running it at Origins? Being as it is largely a new game system, we need time to both prep the scenario/quest as well and simply learning the game mechanics. Only 34 days (less than five weeks) and counting until the show.

Thank you for asking what has been on my mind as well. I am working to start prepping for Origins, but without this info I am tied to very basic work. While I completely understand that there may be some other paperwork that needs to be processed first (such as NDA's), the sooner we can have this to prepare, the better the experience will be for ALL the players and gms.

Depending on how close you are to the border, you could always try one of the Ohio or Kentucky VO's if those areas are closer to you.

The one in Season 9 says it doesn't count because they CAN'T have proof... I had a player get around that now, so story wise they "are" a Linnorm King, even though it does nothing mechanically, its a great piece of the story for a PC who is already from a very well-known family.

How will you handle the certification process? As a youth services librarian, I’ve already had the background check, but I don’t have anything from my job that states that I have it. Will there be a separate certification process for PSA?

Hmm

Hmm I'm a teacher and I am able to request a copy of it from HR (which I've had to do to show it other places before). Would this be an option for you?

Our region does some kids tables. But we are just running regular scenarios. The GMs work to pick not overly dark, plot heavy, or too adult. We also found that kids enjoy playing the goblins. Being able to nuke your sister with magical fire is apparently very appealing. And I have played at a kids table. I think it worked having one non gm experienced player at the table to help them with questions and help the gm cat herd.

I've seen similar in my region. I've also ran games of Confirmation and Wounded Wisp with some minor changes (as in your going and looking for a book in a library, not a bottle of wine at an inn) and those seem to work well. The puzzles are simple enough to be solved, but complex enough to make them think, and they get to beat up some bad guys. Best story is when I had a table with 4 barbarians decide to charge the ------ in Confirmation, and then crit it. Very quick fight that made them feel super powerful.

I hope you do make it back to finish these - my group loves them, and I do to. They are immersive and detailed, and so much more fun to play on than my drawing skills can produce.

Same question as well - can we use a new copy of Season 8, or will there be an updated one for Season 9?

What does the cost for this run with shipping? I am interested, but trying to figure out if it would fit into my budget...

While I have/own "Pathfinder Player Companion: Elves of Golarion", I was planning on using the Access from the "Pathfinder Player Companion: Alchemy Manual" as it has more types of arrows (or at least seems to have more). That way I don't have to lug around as many books...

it's just that I keep bumping into players at the local venue that will say things like: "oh, that's been changed in an FAQ..." or "That's not legal..." ... it's trying to push me back into just playing CORE. To many arguments any more.

The "buy them in 50" is just avoiding another argument about whether I can buy them in smaller lots (without a special Boon for it, after all "they wouldn't have created a Boon if you could just buy them without it!" shesh...) :-(

anyway - thanks everyone for the reassurance...

So does that mean you can retrieve them without issue? Even in PFS? And while enchantments wouldn't last (like blanches?) the arrow type would (Adamantine, cold iron, etc...)

Never played an RPG before? Miss DnD 3.5? Played other systems and want to try something new? Experience Pathfinder looking for a new group? All are welcome. We even have pre-generated characters for anyone who just wants to try a new game!

This is a cut down of what I use on the Meetup group I advertise through for the store I run at, and was taken from one of the VO's in my area. We also then have a simple handout for new players that helps them with finding the guild guide and other area games.

Does anyone have the Blakros Agent boon from GenCon and willing to share the text? From what I can find on it, I think I want to try and trade for it.

Also, looking to trade for a Character Rebuild or Share the Wealth (companion) boon.

I have a ratfolk, and various other lower boons I would be happy to pair together.

After running 2 parts of this and playing the third, I was able to make a few a connections between the three, but I agree that it was definitely stringy at best. Especially because my players didn't make all of the checks for the information in the first part, and as a result didn't get all of the connections to the concordance as a whole.

However, I think that the biggest thing that connects them is that there were actually 8 of the elemental lords, and not just 4. Though, this is only scene in the first if you investigate the statues, and then only if you connect it back later...

I don't have an answer for you, but a similar question myself. If I wanted to embroider the GotOR onto something, would it be okay to change the color from black? I've seen it in a few color combinations in images, but I don't want to do something that could be an issue either.... I just want it to match what it is being imprinted on...
