Turns out, years later, I need this. Thank you!

I've GM'd one smaller con for Starfinder Society (Cleveland ConCoction 2018) and this was a very different experience. So much energy! I was so anxious about running a table during the special, but my players were great folks who rolled with all the punches and the material was so great that my anxiety was replaced with enthusiasm.

Even though I basically lost my voice after my first or second table on Friday! Thankful for the patience of folks who sat with me.

HQ volunteers were awesome, every single one. I had everything I needed from them and on top of efficiency they were just really fun and friendly. I'm driven to do this more often where and when I can, even if I can't afford to make it out to other big conventions very often. I expect to be lining up to volunteer for Origins 2019.

I'm proud of you all. This is deserved and it was a delight to be there for the announcement during the Starfinder Special at Origins!

Wow! My Second Seeker PC, Kylex, became heavily invested in the events of Yesteryear's Truth and there was a bit of a conflict brewing between the characters about the final course of action they would take. Learning the ghibrani language became an imperative and Kylex vowed to be of service to their needs should he ever be called upon. I look very much forward to this chapter.

I'm sharing in the love and pride I feel for the wonderful humans of Paizo. Y'all are amazing.

My players can't quit SMC. I'm excited, too, but mostly because Kylex, my Second Seeker shirren envoy, is entirely smitten with Zigvigix.

My table loved this mod more than words. The vesk blackhole metal rockstar in particular was going to ascend to heaven. I lay it on thick when I portray Zo! so he's hard for the players to forget. I could really go on and on. My favorite module so far.

The reason for this request is that people wanted to learn the game, and at the time of launch,...

I can't stress enough how much I appreciate the slow valve release of new material and options. I think everything is going swimmingly and I'm especially happy as a GM these days.

The writers are KILLING IT on loyalty bonuses for those who've paid attention to the NPCs and lore breadcrumbs along the way. I'm so impressed and absolutely loving my time in SFS.

I'm glad that people are so receptive to these tidbits! It's one of the neat things we can work in when starting up a new campaign.
Those are definitely one of best things about the SFS scenarios. You all are doing a fantastic job. Thank you.

I want to echo this SO HARD. These little loyalty bonuses make the whole campaign so much more engaging than it would otherwise be, and it is already written so well.

Didn't check to see if this was captured. The tooltip when selecting Plutarchy is:

"A small council comprised of the wealthiest individuals direct society. The rule of coin runs this society, with heavy BRIDES and wealth buying position."

I like women with curves, but I don't think that's what was intended here.
