So GenCon already has a schedule available? Because I don't think Origins does.

5/5 Venture-Agent, California—San Francisco Bay Area North & East aka Pirate Rob

I don't think I can compete with Compton even if I do have awesome artwork from Liz Courts for my character.

For what it's worth, my cleric worships Yaezhing, too.

I'm surprised that you would enjoy running Bonekeep.

I enjoy the theater of the timed event and I figured I would switch things up instead of running the special.

Well if Kyle decides he doesn't like either of us, we can make our own table. It'll be awesome.

I don't see any events on GenCon's site yet. How are GM schedules ready?

Paizo (Mike and Jon) create the PFS schedule.

That gets sent to GenCon to post.
Players sign up in April/May.
However, when we sign up as GMs, Mike already knows the schedule so he send us what we are going to run in the time slots we are available.
Even though Pathfinder is a magical world, GenCon doesn't create the schedule magically - it takes Mike and Jon time.

Silver Crusade

Aha.

That's a better explanation than I was going to give. I would have made something up about Quickened Assigned Schedule, thanks for preventing me from stumbling over that.

The Pathfinder Pandas of Spring Lake, NC will have 3 representatives at Gen Con. We look forward to spreadingsolving every Pathfinder Problem the Panda way.

I like how your schedule means you have to be in two l=places at once for 15 minutes each day.

I ran a table of Bonekeep 2 right next to the goblin infested group. I couldn't hear a thing. It was only after my tale was finished that I could talk to them. The room is loud with that many people packed in. You won't hear a thing beyond your own table.

So, during my lunch hour yesterday, I already figured out what I want to do with my Suli race boon. Do GMs usually receive their boon early in the con so that they can play the character at the con if they are ready-to-go? Or is it a pick-it-up-as-you-leave thing?


you get it from the prize table. either when you pick up your badge or any time throughout the Con.

Great. Thanks, Kyle. Maybe I can get my Suli to one of your Confirmation tables.

Did I miss anyone running 5-20 or 5-24? They were listed in Mike's Gencon blog post.

Sorry, Andrew Christian is running 1 slot of 5-24. Just thought it was noteworthy.

I'm running 5-24 a bunch at Paizo con so I'll have that one in the back pocket in case one of my other tables doesn't go off.

I talked to somebody at customer service over at Gen Con and the notification for GM badges don't go out until later in the year. Not exactly sure when that will be, just that it is before May.

The hotel block sold out within hours of badges going on sale from what I understand. You will want to either look into a hotel outside the block or alternative arrangements.

Mike, is that 3-5 a hard stop? My flight should be in around 2, but LaGuardia often has delays, so what should I do if I am not able to make that window, considering I am running a game at 8 Thursday morning.

Just show up early and you can pick up stuff in the morning. That's what I did my first year. You don't actually need a badge to wander the halls, just one to play/run games and enter the dealer hall.

We might be there as late as 5:30 but no guarantees. There are commitments for everyone that evening so we need to close up early enough so people have time to get to their evening events.

If you miss the timeframe, you can pick them up at 7:30 am on Thursday,
