It's a pattern. Writing down what's going on helps. I suggest having handouts (I always make additional handouts of anything particular to give to players.)
Pattern again; I would suggest writing it down on another sheet of paper.
Read up on Iomedae lore? I had to because my fear is someone at the table knows more about her then I do.
I would recommend pulling all of the puzzle bits out and writing them on a separate sheet of paper for your reference. I only had difficulty with one part, but I eventually got it because I figured the rest of them were patterns.
I mentioned the puzzle to my fiance' and she was able to pick up on it (background in Science education). She is not as much of a puzzle fan as I am.
Hope that helps Andrew!

Due to mass confusion, I've streamlined the process:
1) Sign up on Warhorn. I'm mainly looking for judges since you have to sign up to PLAY on the KC Game Fair website. www.kcgamefair.com
2) E-mail me which slots you are judging in case I'm blind.
3) Come to the Con and have fun!
4) Meet the VC from KC and confirm or deny the rumors.
The Warhorn is used for people to view event listings:
If you want to GM;
Hope that helps clear some confusion!
Correct me if I'm wrong, but are we looking to establish iconics for the GM side of the table?
If so, then we did a pretty banged up job.
According to season 4, most of the baddies are... a little bit of everything! I like that as a GM. Make me look up a new stat block with new rules. Do not give me the same monster that appeared two seasons ago.

Kansas City is excited to announce a huge Pathfinder Society presence at KC Game Fair. KC Game Fair is held at the Hilton Airport Hotel in Kansas City Missouri and will offer tons of scenarios for play.
KC Game Fair is November 15th - 18th with around 26 tables of awesomeness.
Any Venture-person would be more then happy to help direct you, but since you have two that have replied to your post already; e-mail one or both of us.
I've assisted with several conventions and if you are 5-6 months out then you are at the PRIME time to start prepping. The more work you do now, the easier it is come game day.
All of the venture-people e-mails are public, click on my name for more details.
VC of St. Louis, Brett Sweeney, killed 2 people last Tuesday, Dwarf Barb and a Half Orc Rogue.
GM's don't kill people; monsters kill PC's.If Brett is killing people, I need to get the money he owes me quickly then.
The module is designed for a table of 6 (I believe it mentions this in the scenario introduction, but I have been known to be wrong.)
Also, the pregens are woefully adequate if played by individuals familiar with the game and stat blocks. I had the luxury of sitting next to a player who wasn't and realized that if I wasn't there providing some useful "attack with both weapons" advice, the game may have went differently.
I felt Chris didn't pull any punches, good game Mr. Mortika.

It sounds like you're adding to character background which is great and encouraged. If you are looking to earn a character title (say in PFS), then you can spend the prestige to earn the title. Usually the prestige is such you have to play at least 2-7 adventures and not spend your prestige on anything else.
I think this system is great since it follows the logic, you meet people, people notice your traits, then you are known as "Title".
I play a level 8 alchemist in a home brew setting that barely deviates from the core PFS rules. (We level at a slower progression basically.)
How I try my best:
I have precise bombs, frost bombs, and fast bombs. I have the trait to get me a 5% reduction in brewing potions, but no party members have expressed an interest. Outside of combat, I am the knowledge guy and craft(Alchemy) guy.
In combat, I fly, hasted, and fast bombs until the enemies stop moving. I'm doing tons of damage and the party makes quick work of most encounters with three precise bombs per turn from the flying Alisto.
TL;DR: How do I stop taking the spotlight and become the guide on the side?

In regards to the whole thread, I embraced RPGs and card games because of a club started in Middle School. There wasn't any support at the high school, so it sort of fizzled out. I am a high school math teacher now and here's a few things I've noticed:1. If you're going to start a club like this, get interest at the middle school level.
2. Get the support of other faculty members first, then move to administration.
3. Get parent involvement. This is key. My dad was thrilled that I was learning card games after school and before long joined me.
4. Get continued support/involvement at higher levels.
In regards to this post, I'd consider passing a student if they came up to me and said, "I've optimized this cleric for combat buffs and healing. I'm sorry I didn't get my homework done, would you accept this instead?"
