The time has come where I must tighten the belt. Please cancel my Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, and Role-playing Game subscriptions... As MacArthur said, "I shall return..."

TY,

Oh look it's this thread again...

I hope the wish-list fairy brought you all your top picks...
Now that Thurs - Sun is settled, I'm looking to run We Be Goblins Free! in the noonish slot. Chris/Marc, you've got mail!

Looking forward to another great year at Gen Con!

See you there!
Tom


2 people marked this as a favorite.

Camus, Beauvoir, and Sartre sit for a game of Candyland and its philosophical implications for choice, chance, and free will:

TBH, I've never thought of Candyland in that light before...


Hi,

My October subscription order was updated on the 6th to add a couple items. Looks like I may have snagged the last Dr. Lucky mini as it's now unavailable. Are there any issues with getting this order out?

Thanks,
Tom


Me again... I hope all'y'all got your top picks today @ the bums' rush for Gen Con event reg...

Staying with my multi-year tradition, I'd like to run Risen from the Sands in an early afternoon-ish slot...

I see from the thread over here that Mark is leading the charge this year. (you've got mail) I'm looking forward to another great year in Indy and kicking it off at the Brewhouse...

See you there!
Tom


Hi,

I just added a current flip mat to my sidecart. The option to combine shipping with the pending order (that just spawned) was not available. Has that feature been removed?

Please combine my sidecart order (2871995) with the current pending order (3048339) if possible.

Thanks,
Tom


We know there are no flumphs...
From the title / mock up(?) cover image on FreeRPGDay.com it looks like a possible tie in with Mummy's Mask AP...
Any other details yet?


Here we are again. The mad rush for Gen Con event reg is over, and I start thinking about Wednesday...

I'd like to run We Be Goblins Too! (See here) in an early afternoon-ish slot. I've got myself and 3 players. (will we have 6 goblins?) I don't see any official events (yet?) for Wednesday in the reg system. There's typically a VO/GM function in the evening IIRC. I'd plan to finish before then.

I've got an email in to the Indy team. This gun ain't gonna jump itself... :D

See you there!
Tom


Hi,
The subscription order went in on 7/5. Shipment email came to me on 7/10, but the tracking data is still "unavailable at this time" (Tracking # is 06883PZO00000444461) Past shipments have been pretty regular on 1-week from the shipping email. Hopefully my box did not fall off the truck...

Thanks,
Tom


Now that the bum's rush is over for 2012 events, what's the word for Wednesday? I understand there's a PFS meeting in the works for the afternoon. Is there a time set (even tentative) for that?

I'd like to run Dawn of the Scarlet Sun. I've got myself and 3 players leaving 3 seats. I'm hoping to start early enough to end in time for the player meeting if that's happening.

I've got an email in to the Indy VO team. Mark had coordinated the action at Scotty's the last couple years. I'm hoping to help that tradition live on...

See you there!
Tom


My level 1 summoner-synthesist: General Zhao (picture)

He's a Wargames Factory Ancient German (plastic mini) encased in a mixture of transparent and translucent green sculpey. (Very light on the green 10:1 or maybe less)

This is the first time I've ever tried this. He looks a little rough but the concept of "fantastical magical being wrapped around the summoner" is clear, or at least partially translucent :) I'm hoping to get more iterations on this as he evolves...

Any tips on mini sculpting for a n00b ?

Thanks,
Tom


So in less than 2 months we're headed out for GenCon. I'm looking forward to We Be Goblins! at Scotty's on Wednesday. This settles the first question.

Now the second. On the drive there, we have 4 players in the car with time (~12h) to kill. We're thinking to try a scenario-in-flight.

I'm thinking it would run a bit longer than usual, with one player somewhat distracted by the (long-boring-straight-highway) driving and the GM having to track all position, movement, AoO, etc. Without the common-grid reference on a central table, this would, by necessity, be a more cinematic game. But...

Would it be broken?
We're all up for it, but nobody knows what we're in for. Has anyone ever tried this? did it work?

Would it be legal? (PFS & State Trooper - wise)
"Sorry officer, I five-foot stepped into the other lane w/o signaling"

Any recommendations for a (+)cinematic / (-)grid-tactical scenario?

and no, the GM won't be driving.. (not while GMing in any event...)

If this does work out, next step would be RV-Con... :-D

Cheers!
Tom


Hi,

I got two shipping notices today for the order submitted Saturday.

- 11:35 PST - Flip Mat
- 11:41 PST - Map Pack and CS Sub

(Looks like the Flip mat ships separately...)

and two hits on the CC:
- 8:19 PST - 46.96 (the full amount)
- 11:41 PST - 32.75 (looks like Map Pack & Sub)

Can you have a look and unwind the 2nd CC hit?

Thanks,
Tom


Hi,

I had recently resubscribed to the Campaign Setting subscription and had my subscription set to start at Serpent's Skull Map Folio.

I see in the subscription details that Lost Cities will "will ship with earliest possible monthly shipment" but it does not appear in any of the pending orders...

Can it be added to pending order 1594698 ?

TYVM,
Tom


I'd like to resume my campaign setting subscription with the Serpent's Skull map folio, but there doesn't seem to be an option for that. Please let me know if this can be set up.

Thx,
Tom


Hi,

The copy of Misfit Monsters Redeemed shipped with this order has repeated pages 33-48 in place of pages 49-64. Please let me know how we can proceed to replace the defective book.

Thanks,
Tom


Hi,

My AP order is pending, and Sara Marie has added the Armory (TYVM) I've (re)subscribed to the Chronicles as well. Any chance to fit the Faction Guide into the shipment from my sidecart before it heads out?

Thanks,
Tom Burke


"Benefit: You gain a +1 trait bonus on attack of opportunity attack rolls made with daggers, swords, and similar bladed weapons."

Seems like rapier would fit, but does "similar bladed weapon" reference the slashing-type? Then again dagger is P/S...

I'd OK this in my game, but is it legal for society play?

Thx
Tom


I received the shipment a couple days ago. It seems that you have sent me the Pathfinder GM Screen rather than the Paranoia GM Screen. It's a great screen but I've already got one... I sent an email on this that apparently got lost in the ether. Let me know how we can proceed to fix this mixup.

Thanks.
