Another question regarding these vouchers - previously, I would bank my gift credit to spend at the Paizo Store at GenCon - will I be able to use these vouchers there in the same manner (provided that they haven't expired yet), or are they only redeemable online via the website?

Or, ya know, my nefarious "grand plan" that I've been building up since ~2011 and have put out breadcrumbs throughout a ton of my scenarios in one form or another. The same plan that gets some pretty major reveals in Distant Realms. It COULD be that related to that too... <3

Would you be willing to share a reading list for those of us that want to do our homework???

Woo! A new Goblin tribe and not having to wait until August for more P2? This is awesome and I can't wait to be able to run/play it.

For Pathfinder Academy this Year I think it should be Switched to Starfinder Academy, we can get GMs to run and teach Starfinder we have a beginner box coming out which should be able to teach the Basics of Starfinder right from the Box. Combined with some of the Starfinder Scenarios and Quests. I think it would be the right direction to go. One of the complaints last year was the lack of Starfinder in the Academy Area.

I do think also for the Academy Area we should reduce the number of tables, being offered in the Sag and see if we can get a demo table in the kids area that is put on by GenCon. It would reach more exposure for the Academy and New people for Academy.

I do feel we could probably teach PS2 if we kept it simple with a basic quest line and a Quick Start Guide.

I think the Lesson plans need to be rewritten for the Academy with the both the New Systems in mind.

New Systems, New Academy :D

My 2 cents.

Never give Up, Never Surrender!!

I second everything Lucas said. We want to be teaching the kids the systems going forward, and since we’ve got a beginner box coming for Starfinder, and P2 development purposely looked at having an easier entry point, having kids jump into the systems is a great opportunity for growth. Also, looking at scenarios that could be used for this, for P1 the Goblins ones have been used, so could Skittershot be used for Starfinder? It definitely encourages working together and being “helpful”.

Looks like the registration link is broken.

It's not going live until Friday at 9am EST, so I don't expect it to work until then.

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!!

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.

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...
