Nyaw, can't wait for Gameday 4.

This year can we get a Talk Like a Pirate Day up?
Last year it was going to happen - then sort of disappeared.

On a side note, running Tian Xa themed adventures for the Chinese New Year, almost finished building the 3d terrain of Nesting Swallow Village - strangely, its not as big as I thought it would be when you craft up the village, looks bigger on a 2d map.

I ran those three last Game Day. Interesting times.

It would be good if we could have a few more seasonal event days etc.

You know, it could be pretty amazing to have a Holiday Boon just for Online Gaming Events. We really should petition Jessie on this. . .

Good Evening, Everyone!

Hope everyone had an enjoyable event.

A HUGE Thanks to all the GMs who made this a very successful event.

Looks like we will be ~ 160 total games ran. Well done.

I will be sending out emails to the GMs tomorrow to cover all the wrap-up details.

I will also have a separate post covering prize support and boons on Wednesday.

Thanks again for everyone who participated in PbP GD 3. Everyone has done an excellent job and has been a lot of fun.

Talk to you soon!

I have not received either of the two mails that Jesse mentioned. Did anyone receive them or did something intervene at Jesse's side?

No problem if the later is the case, I just want to be sure I did not miss a GM mail.

5/5 5/5

Just forwarded you my mail. ..

4/5 5/5

<- stupid. I had that mail, and forgot all about it after I read it on Tuesday. Thanks for forwarding Kludde! (And congrats on your third star)

1/5

I got the Quick GM Update message on Monday, but nothing since from Jesse. Was there another email after that? I'm eager to apply my GM boon and am curious where things stand.

The latest message (and the one I forwarded) was the one from Monday.

Thanks, DMK. So the email Jesse planned to send out Wednesday night is still being crafted, I presume. At least that means I still have a shot at a prize!

Thank you sir.

3/5

Thank you and congrats for the great success! :)

I guess session reports will start appearing in the Sessions tab through the week.

4/5 5/5

Thank you for the nice birthday present!

2/5

What's left is our own character's sessions' reporting. :)

Not relevant as of now, but for future reference. Can the boon be forgone and given to someone else? (either by the receiver's choosing or another randomized participant)?

I personally dislike boons of any kind and prefer to give them away than hold them to myself.

Liberty's Edge 5/5 Regional Venture-Coordinator, Online aka IronHelixx

Indeed - no requirement to accept one - and if you do, you can always trade it or give it away.

What happens to those who've won multiple boons and selected the same boon twice? That happened for me, and I've only received a single boon of that type...

I was lucky enough to win 3 boons, and very excited about it. I chose Adopted Weapon Training once, and Ancestral Ally twice (in session 53 with my character Ilya, and session 88 as GM). I received each of these boons once.

In the emails with the boons I received, is the following line:
** Please remember that you are only allowed one copy of this boon, applied to one PC, and that this boon can not be distributed to other players. **

If there's no way to get Ancestral Ally boon twice this Gameday, is there still a way to swap the second Ancestral Ally for Custom order? I didn't know I couldn't select it twice...

And another question:
Say I get another Adopted Weapon Training by trading boons. If one of my PCs already has that boon, is it allowed to apply the 2nd Adopted Weapon Training boon to a 2nd PC by using my GM star?

Liberty's Edge 5/5 Regional Venture-Coordinator, Online aka IronHelixx

You should have a second email, if you won multiple boons.

We also are missing a number of email addresses from winners. So, if anyone is missing a boon at this point, it is likely that person is one of those missing email addresses.

I have it now. Thanks!

So what if I want to apply each of those Ancestral Ally boons to a different character of mine, can it be done in some way? Or is there no exception to "you are only allowed one copy of this boon", as there is with re-running a scenario for credit (by spending a GM star)?

Grand Lodge

If you have three of the same boon, you can apply it to three different PCs.

Liberty's Edge 5/5 Regional Venture-Coordinator, Online aka IronHelixx

What Jeremy said. Each boon you receive can be applied to one PC. So, if you have three copies of the same boon, three different PCs can each have one of the boons applied to it. The note at the bottom is just to make sure people understood that you cannot copy the boon and apply one boon to twenty PCs, and that you cannot make copies of it to give away. It is something I have seen new players not understand, so I was trying to make clear - and possibly ended up confusing a couple of people in the process. Will try to word it better in the future.

Edit: The new player confusion I saw was in regard to a "Tales" boon, which can be applied to more than one PC. They then thought ALL boons worked that way. It was an honest mistake. But I wanted to make it clear here, if possible.

Next time, though, I'm not going to try to run a module...or if I do, it won't be one as long as From Shore to Sea. Great piece of work, but it's two weeks past the end of the Game Day and we're still not done.

Sovereign Court

Carbide, I picked up a game near the start because the GM went MIA (still worried about her) and we're still not done, plus it seems we've lost another PC as one hasn't checked in for at least a month. But just trying to push through it.

Modules can get way out of hand way to easy for my liking too :p


Awesome! Thanks guys! :)

Hey there IronHelixx. Had a blast at the GameDay! So much PFS PbP action and with boon support to boot - it was great!

I'm just wondering if all sessions have been entered yet or not. I've got three that aren't appearing on my online profile (run by other GMs) and I'm wondering if I should be trying to track them down yet or not. They finished pretty close to Feb, so quite possible that they're at the end of the batch.

I tried to find the session details, but GoDaddy has reclaimed pbpgameday.com! Eep! I can link you to the gameplay threads if you like. One of the session IDs was on the campaign info, though (#144), so hopefully that helps.

**EDIT** I should also note that I have received a boon for one of the sessions that aren't appearing on my profile, which is one of the reasons I'm concerned that the haven't appeared on my online profile yet.

2/5

+1 On the sessions entered question.
If you need the session ID i'll post them, i've finished them in januari.

Liberty's Edge 5/5 Regional Venture-Coordinator, Online aka IronHelixx

PBPGAMEDAY.COM seems to working right now - I think it was a godaddy issue that resolved.

I am only up to session .... 73-ish - will finish the rest Monday evening.

Why am I not surprised GM Feral managed to get the first session honours? The guy is a champ at keeping a game shifting! :)

2/5

Thanks for the heads up.

4/5 5/5

And I see table 12 was TPK'ed. Besides these 5 there was just one other permadeath if I am not mistaken.

I noticed that I have a game listed twice. #138 & 139 should only be one session, when you get to it. I'm not sure how that happened. It was a game I took over from DM Kim.

2/5

Thanks IronHelixx! Much appreciated. Thanks again for running these GameDays. Marvelous work. Good luck getting all those sessions reported - looks like your work is cut out for you, that's a pile of sessions that we did!

Shadow Lodge

And, by all mean, let me know if you need any extra help.

Liberty's Edge 5/5 Regional Venture-Coordinator, Online aka IronHelixx

Yes, there are a couple of games that were accidentally reported twice. We have accounted for those. In the future we will allow for GMs editing their own sessions, that was just not in the timeline this go round though. But it should help going forward.

I hate to be a pest, but any update on this? I am anxiously awaiting seeing my shiny new star showing up... and its been 2+ weeks for the reporting.

I did, BTW, receive all expected boons in email. Thank you for that.

Liberty's Edge 5/5 Regional Venture-Coordinator, Online aka IronHelixx

I had hoped to finish on Monday, but only got to session 112 of 166.

At this rate I should be able to finish the last 54 by tomorrow evening, after work.

I understand this part is a pain, since there really is no automation.

Thanks for all the good work!

Something else to bug Jesse with:
When can the pricewinners expect their price in their downloads?

Thanks, Guys - The pleasure is ours. :)

On the prizes: I am trying to track down the last couple of winners and then I will send the list off. (I need to do it all at once) If I do not get the winners by tomorrow afternoon, we will just submit what we have.

Me and others partners (4 players of 6) have problems with reporting.

Oure session was 74 (Silverhex), played with pregens and 4 of us didn`t registered PCs. I think is a change in reportering system that dont allow to report non registered PCs.

Some of us have win a boon, all have a chronicle sheet and had registered PC the same day VC Online contacted with our GM (18th of February). He said that send an email to VC Online.

But today it seems that reporting is ended and our PCs don`t be reported.

:(

Liberty's Edge 5/5 Regional Venture-Coordinator, Online aka IronHelixx

There were multiple issues with the reporting information submitted for that session, and with the reporting system. It should be reported though. If you are still not seeing the session now let me know.
