Join me in saying a big congratulations to Indiana's newest 5 star GM, Greg Hurst! Greg GMed his 150th table this past Sunday at Comic Carnival. He is a former VL, and he has dedicated 100s of hours to PFS in Indiana (and sometimes Ohio, too :) ). See here for a pic of Greg and VC Chris Bonnet on Sunday!
Today is my last day as Venture Captain for Pathfinder Society of Indiana. This decision was very hard to make, but I think it's time for someone with more time and energy and fresh ideas to take over. I love PFS, and I've had a wonderful year and a half as VC. I plan to stick around, GM, and play some. Hopefully I'll see you at the table sometime in the near future!
My replacement has not been announced, yet.
Thanks again! I really have loved meeting and gaming with everyone. I've made some wonderful friends through PFS. I hope to continue to do so.
All tables except for one (waiting on PP numbers from the GM) have been reported! Counting number of tables filled per slot, we had 89 tables of PFS at Who's Yer Con 2013. That is a huge increase from the 56 in 2012 and the 52 in 2011. Big thanks to all of Indiana's VOs (Mike Bramnik, Mike Cleland, Mike Costello, Greg Hurst, Brian Mooney, Chris Bonnet); each of them came and supported the con by running tables and HQ. Special thanks to Greg Hurst and Molly Mooney for overseeing the special, and Cody Jones and Jim Tinklenberg for running random First Steps overflow tables. Big big big thanks to all of the GMs who volunteered to run:
Carlos Danao (the only non-VO who volunteered to GM every slot)
Thank you to Amanda for making the drive to Indy to be a special guest GM for a slot of Fortress of the Nail! And especially thank you to all the players and Who's Yer Gamers for making it all possible! Hope I am not forgetting anyone! Please send any feedback about the convention to me at TracyPFSIndy at a gmail dot com email address.

Congrats on start number 4!!! Any words of wisdom to pass on to GMs coming up the ranks?
Don't worry about getting player credit on the games you GM. GM whatever comes your way, and GM the games you like over and over again! Those are probably the wisest words I can come up with :)
Thanks everyone! Thea...I'll join you on top of the mountain shortly, I hope! Maybe at GenCon?
Also, for the record, I tried really hard to kill Greg's character, and if he hadn't had a witch and a wizard debuffing my BBEG, I would have succeeded. And I made up for it by killing someone else's character on Friday night.
Hello everyone! I am quite pleased to announce that we will be receiving special GM and Player boons at both Scotty's and The Arsenal Game Room for our annual pre-GenCon events. We will also be receiving prize support for giveaways!
Make sure to sign up, as this event usually fills up quickly as the convention approaches:
I am still looking for a few more GMs in the 9am slot. Email TracyPFSIndy at a gmail dot com address if you are interested!
Patience, my young Padawans! While organizing for Scotty's has been in the works for months, I am still lacking the information I need to plan for games. I do not know what time we can start, what time we need to end, or how much space we will have. And I, unfortunately, have no control over when I will get this information.
That being said, I also want to let everyone know that we will be hosting games at both Scotty's and at a "family-friendly" venue called The Arsenal Game Room in downtown Indianapolis. This venue is just a short drive or a $5-7 cab ride from the convention center area in downtown Indy. This venue is for those people who would rather not game in a loud bar environment.
If you are interested in GMing at either venue, please let me know at TracyPFSIndy@gmail.com. I am keeping a list of GMs, what they want to run, and their availabilities.
For players, I will announce information as it becomes available. You can also keep an eye on the warhorns, which I will update as soon as I possibly can.
