Back in 2010 I had never played a tabletop roleplaying game. A coworker at the time introduced a few of us to Pathfinder after he had transitioned from D&D 3.5. I was hooked, but meeting once a month for our Kingmaker campaign wasn’t cutting it. After I had come across the existence of Pathfinder Society Organized Play I built up the courage to try it. You were my first PFS GM back in the summer of 2011 and #29: The Devil We Know—Part I: Shipyard Rats was my first PFS scenario.

It was immediately evident that more GMs were needed, so you encouraged me to give it a shot, despite my inexperience. Pathfinder has become more than just a hobby, in large part because of your generosity and good will. The years that have followed have built lasting friendships. A large group of us regularly get together to enjoy Pathfinder, board games, and outdoor activities. Heck, one of these friends is now my roommate, and I am very happy for that.

Truly, your hard work to make Pathfinder available, and enjoyable, for the Portland, Oregon community has done a great deal to influence my life for the better. I have no doubt that it has been the case for others as well.

Always grateful for your friendship,

Hear, hear. I still have fond memories of the first session I played in under Alex, a table of The Infernal Vault. Man, that was a long time and about three game stores ago.



It's great to see this sort of comment in public now, rather than not until his retirement! (Wait... I didn't miss a post, Alex is still V-C, right?)

Very cool.
