Xathos, I always appreciate your help at our cons in KC. Congrats on making 5-glyph!

Landon, I fondly remember your table of 9-00 at GenCon that marked my -1’s 33rd XP (and my first seeker character). Congrats on your 5th nova!

The decision itself is reasonable and I absolutely support it.

Failing to announce this with enough time for folks to roll their badge over before the May 16th deadline is insensitive to every player and volunteer relying on that input to determine whether they would attend or not. It is a breach of trust, and Paizo needs to address it with the community.

If the scenario implies/states that the party is In A Hurry (tm) for narrative or mechanical reasons - then you gotta go with what you have. I would think most of us who have played spellcasters start with a basic loadout and then after hearing the briefing it makes me think "you know, maybe swapping in a Resist Energy or Lesser Restoration might be prudent" then I'll do it if presented the opportunity.

Our lodge recently started up a Discord server, and while it was slow to get off the ground, recent events — including the area’s largest game store announcing they were closing their game room for the rest of the month — saw a surge in interest. I’ll be sharing these links, very helpful!

Why are so many people surprised by their schedule? Some say surprised with SFS, some surprised with 2E. I don’t understand why there would be surprise at any aspect of the schedule if it follows what you listed as an option on the questionnaire.

I’m surprised at the number of people who asked for ten blocks.

For me it was the perception of where the demand for both versions' GMs would be. I speculated that there would be equal or more demand for 2E GM slots compared to 1E. So when I got my email and saw I didn't have 1E that clashed with my expectations until you provided the context that most applicants were exclusively requesting 1E slots.

We have also had an over-abundance of GM volunteers who are only providing 1E as a program options. Unfortunately, moving forward we have to ask that anyone who selects the 1E program, also has to select either 2E or SFS in addition so we have the flexibility to meet whatever the demand for tickets may be.

That would explain the distribution of my slots, lol. Not that I'm unhappy with doing ACG and 2E, just a little surprised.

Glad I decided to wait a day before getting outraged. (Honestly, this is a good personal policy for a number of things.)

Agree with the feedback that a bit of proactive communication would have preempted any bad vibes. But now we know, and knowing is half the battle.

Hi A'ala!

I'm one of the regular GM's at the KC lodge - welcome to the area!

Our primary communication platform is on Facebook and we schedule games on Warhorn

It's a bit of a drive but we're happy to roll dice with you whenever you can make it!

Question: Understanding that we won't know assigned blocks until April, I had indicated availability for the GenCon Friday night block, but had submitted my questionnaire before the specials schedule was announced. Knowing now that Friday night will be SFS 2-00, is the expectation that the whole ballroom will be used, or is there a possibility of a few tables in the corner doing PFS1-2/PACG? I'm not an SFS GM and am trying to determine if I should email GenConLeads and shift that availability to a different block (or remove it entirely).

The Concordance 4/5 *** Venture-Captain, Missouri—Kansas City

I put in for three slots and said I could be available for any afternoon/evening slot and Sunday morning for PFS 1/2 and ACG.

In one month's time the Kansas City Pathfinder/Starfinder Society Lodge invites its friends from near and far to Midwest Game Fest! 40+ slots scheduled (as of 10/1/18) including PFS, SFS, PACG and Playtest.

Midwest Game Fest 2018 will be held Thursday November 1 through Sunday November 4th at the Stoney Creek Hotel and Conference Center in Independence, Missouri (east of Kansas City at the I-70/I-470 interchange).

We have RVC/OPC sanctioning to run SFS 1-99 (Thursday evening, 6:30pm muster) and PFS 10-00 (Friday evening, 6:30pm muster).

We do still have some capacity to run additional scenarios, particularly on Sunday. The con offers a $10 discount per 4-hour slot GMed. If interested please inquire in thread or PM me for additional details.

So for characters who have already purchased the hornbow off of the chronicle, is the only effect the need to retrain Weapon Focus(Longbow or Shortbow) to Weapon Focus(Hornbow)?

Thanks Chris - I'll reach out to the event creator and confirm that.

Hopefully a week is a reasonable time to wait before bumping :)

The constant refreshing of the event page mentioned in the OP is similar behavior to what was described in this recent thread. While correlation <> causation I thought it worth mentioning in case there was a similar root cause.

Hello!

Shortly before the site's outage issues (which seem to be stable, congrats!) I was added as a reporter to event #623650 - The Geekery in Shawnee, KS. However, the event does not appear in my GM/Event Coordinator tab and when I try to access the page directly from my Player Sessions tab the page fails to load, appearing to attempt to reload itself every 1-2 seconds. Here is the URL (not included in a URL tag).

https://secure.paizo.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/Store.woa/wa/DirectAction/signI n?path=events/v5748mkg0n76q

I did confirm with the event creator that I was added, and have corroborated with other reporters on the event that they have experienced the same behavior when trying to report on this event.

I know you've been dealing with a ton of issues lately but any insight you could add would be sincerely appreciated!

I'm not sure if this is only me, but the icon graphic for The Concordance isn't displaying correctly; I see the 'broken graphic' icon and the text 'The Concordance' next to it. I've done some basic troubleshooting on my end (clearing caches, etc.) in case it's a local thing but I'm not having any luck.

If it's a known issue, I understand it'll be deservedly way down the priority list, but I'd like to see the little lantern icon on my profile when you can get to it.

Interesting. We were at the same table and I am not seeing it reported on my character.

That *is* interesting...I checked with my daughter and she sees 9-00 in the same event as I do, along with the Starfinder table she had.

The Pathfinder and Starfinder Lodges of Greater Kansas City are in the planning stages for PFS, SFS and PACG activities for KantCon 2018.

KantCon 2018 will be held Friday July 13th through Sunday July 15th at the Overland Park Convention Center in Overland Park, KS (southern KC metro).

The KantCon website is at https://www.kantcon.com/

We have the capacity to run up to 40 tables and at least one interactive special, but we'll need players and GMs to realize that potential. We are looking to program primarily current Season 9 PFS/Season 1 SFS/Season of Faction's Favor PACG content plus evergreens and quests.

Watch this space for further updates! If you are interested in GMing please reply in thread or PM me for additional details.

From a volunteer structure standpoint I think the current model can scale to support small and large lodges, and can also scale to handle multiple product lines, based on the needs of individual lodges.

In my opinion (and I state that up front, acknowledging I have a limited perspective) where resource is needed is on the corporate side. I seem to recall that Paizo was looking to hire another Org Play developer, which is a good thing, I hope that is still in the works. I'd also advocate that 1 or 2 Assistant OPC's reporting to Tonya to handle administration would be helpful. Of course that's overhead for Paizo so it's their call whether that's good business for them.

The Concordance

Thanks for a prompt response even if it is "we don't know yet". Will keep an eye out for further updates.

For those of us attending GenCon, would there be an option to preorder Playtest items and pick them up at GenCon?

It's possible that's a placeholder image; confirmation of that would be good.

And just because I haven't seen it explicitly stated (but there's been a LOT of stuff put out and could easily have missed it), maps are still scaled as squares and 1 square = 5 feet, and therefore "1e" flipmats/map packs/map tiles are compatible with 2e, correct? Buying new books/PDFs for the new edition I understand, but buying new maps because the old maps aren't compatible wouldn't feel very nice.

This information is not in the new version guide, and it is critical.

I have an eighth level bard who has a ton of Dark archive faction card checkoffs who is switching to the Concordance. I am certain that I am not the only person with a higher level character who wants to switch over. Does she have to leave them all behind in order to switch? What happens the the extra languages she earned? Do they evaporate?

I looked to see if mechanics for the switch are in 9-14, and they are not. Can someone freely switchover before the scenario starts to earn the Concordance benefits, provided they are level 1-5?

Hmm

PS I love the new Concordance traits! Cup may have to take extra traits just to get a Concordance trait!

Did this question get addressed? I saw John's response that he wanted to huddle with the team before replying but didn't see anything after that.

Question — Is Welcome to Pathfinder restricted to conventions? My reading of the Guild guide is that since it is classified separately from convention and holiday booms it can be given at any PFS event and applied to a -1 character. Can anyone clarify if I’m mistaken?

Bob, can we adjust our availability as we know more about our schedules? I put in a survey but it's somewhat restrictive (which I know isn't as helpful). Once I know my other commitments I can expand my availability. Can we 'edit' our survey post-submission or do we need to email GenConLeads@gmail.com?

Hello,

I've been sorting through my pawns and have discovered that I'm missing a sheet from my Bestiary 5 box. It is the mixed size sheet that has small pawns 31-37 (Psychemental-Shasalqu x2), medium pawns 116-117 (Thriae Dancer-Tulpu) and huge pawns 202-203 (Moon Giant x2-Sun Giant x3).

If I could have a replacement sheet shipped to my address on file that would be awesome.

It's the same code causing this for other conventions, so when the code rolls you should see sessions populate regardless of event, the current code just doesn't realize it's supposed to be showing it to you.

By chance, have you scheduled this release yet?
Yes, we're planning on updating the website today and we'll be keeping an eye on Organized Play reporting to make sure everything is working smoothly.
