I love the Martial Arts Handbook cover and would love to hang it on my wall. I know in the past Paizo's made promotional posters for gaming stores based on their cover art (usually hardcovers), so hopefully this amazing piece makes the cut. Alternatively, I would buy this if it was made into a product, and would consider other covers in a similar line.

As someone who will not be in attendance this year, I hope someone like the folks at Know Direction will be recording the seminars. There is sure to be great information coming out of those regarding the 2E Playtest that we all want to hear.

We will be recording seminars (and the preview banquet) again this year, and once again we hope that this year is the year where we record every seminar!

You couldn't have ended on a higher note unless you stood on the counter at GenCon and yelled "I'm out!" and walked away when the last Starfinder sold.
Congratulations on living the dream while keeping other dreams in mind. Good luck!

I've been invited to visit the Paizo office on Thursday, May 25th, but I'm having trouble working out the logistics. I'm told that if someone on the message boards gives me a lift, they too are invited for the Paizo office nickel tour.

If you have a car (and preferably has access to a toddler car seat) and is free Thursday afternoon around 3:30pm, please let me know. I'll check this thread often before I leave Thursday morning.

Thanks!

Whoa. This is a shock. I was already preparing anecdotes to bring up to you at PaizoCon next week. Will you still be there?

Liberty's Edge

I'm an old PaizoCon hand at this point, but my family will be joining me for the first time this year. My wife's not as into Pathfinder as she once was and our daughter is 2, so I was wondering if anyone could recommend activities in the area or a short drive away they might want to check out.

Treat every day of nursing school as an adventure, and remember that you have all the right cards.

Thank you for your efforts but this isn't for me.

We'd love to offer transcripts, but that is a beast unto itself. We're limited by our time and budget as volunteers. If you could recommend trustworthy freeware that transcribes audio or video, we'd certainly look into that.

Absolutely, positively not trying to rain on your parade. But that underlines why I personally don't consume podcasts or vidcasts. The time burden is placed on the consumer. I can read a lot faster than you can speak. Pretty much the reason why podcast/vidcast producers don't spend the effort to make transcripts is the reason why I don't consume them. So hey, I'm very, very glad you've got an audience. I'm only posting this to explain why I made the request.

So, to be clear, thank you for what you do.

No offense taken. I sincerely would like to include transcripts with the podcasts, but the only way we could do that is with a program that does the work for us (or a very dedicated volunteer).

We had Creative Director James L Sutter on the Know Direction podcast last night to dive into Starfinder, from the journey behind the scenes making the nascent decisions for the setting, to what we know about the game, to the logistics of creating a Starfinder CRB/Campaign setting book that also includes space fantasy tropes, and finally to what has changed and what's on the horizon now that the news is out.

Nice, I got into this game! Really looking forward to experiencing you as a GM, Stephen.

One point of order, there are conflicting times listed in the event details:
Saturday morning, 8:00 am–1:00 pm
Sat, May 28, 2016, 12:00 pm – 05:00 pm

I'm assuming the 8:00am one is correct, since that's the one booked in my schedule, but I just wanted to be sure.

Liberty's Edge

Once again, we're trying to record as many of the seminars as we can. Not counting workshops, there are as many as three seminars running at the same time this year.

We have several recorders (at least three), but if anyone is willing to share a digital recorder for the weekend, we would appreciate it. We will only use these recorders at seminars attended by members of the Know Direction podcast network.

We're also always looking for volunteers attending seminars who are willing to take responsibility for the recorders.

Thanks!

Liberty's Edge

Yes please!

Thanks Bob. I actually already did that, and was just coming back to let anyone else who wanted to know that it sounds like it will be at 8:30 PST.

Given that Ryan is in Montreal and Perram in Kentucky, I'm pretty sure the start time will be 8:30pm EST, 5:30pm PST. The replay usually gets posted to YouTube pretty quickly, too, before the audio gets edited and posted as the podcast. If you can't watch it live, there are ways to watch or listen later!

The Know Direction YouTube Channel to watch it over and over...

Dan is correct. We go live as of 8:30 pm Eastern, 5:30 pm Pacific. We will start with the interview, which traditionally runs for an hour (although the PFS episodes have a tradition of their own, running 1.5 hours) and taking questions throughout.

We've created an event page as a reminder.

Sounds like a good thing to ask about during the interview!

Anyone who can't make the live interview, feel free to post your PFS questions here or on our forums.

And thanks again to Tonya and John for this opportunity.

Thanks for the shout out, guys. The recordings wouldn't be possible this year without the help of Rich Flynn, Sarah Bull, Darran Caldemeyer, Alex Augunas, and my co-volunteer of the year, Jefferson Jay "Perram" Thacker.

I did. Unfortunately, I marked it as an event I wanted in the lottery before I booked my flight. I leave Monday at 12:56. I'm afraid I'm going to have to trade my ticket. :/

If you look at the Elven Entanglement scenario card in the big post, it mentions animals. And it seems you are fighting plants.

Hawk: if you are curious, I believe the source material for that scenario is this:

Pathfinder Society Scenario #5–05: The Elven Entanglement
Though I've yet to play it, it's got a reputation for being a deadly RPG scenario.

There is a specific "plant" in that scenario that I'm squealing with delight to see in the card set. And as the author of that scenario, I'm especially stocked to see Vinst and Cecilla get the Adventure Card treatment.

Hey folks!

Anyone who wants to watch live can tune in to our YouTube channel as of 8:30 pm EST (5:30 pm PST). Ask your questions via the video's comment section and we will add them to the questions about the new landscape of Pathfinder Society. Simple as that!

This PaizoCon, the Know Direction podcast wants to talk to Pathfinder people who have something to share but haven’t had a platform on which to share it yet, people we haven’t talked to before or in a while. If you’re a third party publisher, have worked on Pathfinder material (1st, 3rd, or any party in between) or run a tool of use to the Pathfinder community, let us know. We hope to get enough response that we can switch guests every 5 minutes, allowing us to interview 15-20 individuals or groups in rapid succession. Let us know below if you are interested.

Note: This is all dependent on our event submission being accepted.

Liberty's Edge

Hope the chest is common. I could use a few of them.

Hey Bill! Nice to meet another VO in my neck of the woods. Well, more like the neck of the woods near my sprawling urban area. ;)

I could be bummed about all the time and money I spent tracking down the iconic miniatures, but who cares? These Iconic Heroes Boxed Set versions already look superior, and well worth picking up.

They are $5 each. Do you ask her before you order a grande latte? ;)

For the cost of a cup of coffee, you could adopt a Pathfinder Minimate. For the cost of a cup of coffee a day, you could adopt them all.

Question about Squealy Nord: Will the base just say pig, or will this be the 100% official Squealy Nord Pathinder Battles miniature?

Will the Scotty's and Munchkin minimates be available on the Wednesday before GenCon?

I like to think the Skald language started as a secret language like Druidic, but the skald speakers kept telling everyone about it.

Spoiler:
This was my first encounter with a babau ever. My staff magus was the only one in the party with darkvision, but I was having trouble hitting at first. I had to keep spell recalling true strike just to make sure I hit, because we could not afford to miss it two rounds in a row.

When babaus started showing up in multiples and in mooks all season 5, I kept getting flashbacks to Day of the Demon. Even now that my staff magus is close to retirement and has dropped babaus in a single round, I get nervous when one shows up. I know the damage those slimy demons can do.

As for how you handled it, Slacker, I understand your need to justify. I don't like killing PCs, but I also know as a player I don't like when GMs pull punches. I'll only pull punches for a round or two if a player has shown they just don't enjoy the numbers side of the game and wouldn't know how tripped up a character can be if they are unprepared for

Erik Mona announced 12 exclusive Pathfinder Minimates available at GenCon. They're going to be all over the con, and the city, so if Minimates are your thing, you are going to have a lot of leg work ahead of you. There would be one exclusive to Scotty's Brewery, another exclusive to another restaurant, one you would need to score a critical hit at the PFS treasure chest. He also went into a few details about the different exclusive Minimates: there will be a Razmiran priest, a Licktoad tribe goblin, and KonKrud, the sickly goblin that was a con exclusive last PaizoCon.

I'm free at the same time on Sunday and on a flight that leaves about half an hour before yours, so having two other people in the game watching the clock would be good for me.
