I am delighted to congratulate Benoît Gros on achieving his fifth star for GM'ing. He sets the Gold Standard for running Pathfinder games and recently I was honoured to play in some of his games at GardenCon, Geneva. Benoît plays the characters like a professional actor who has learned his roles to perfection and he sets the scene and the atmosphere like a master of storytelling. What makes that even more remarkable is that he does so in several languages. On an international table, he will sometimes run in more than one language to make sure all the players are comfortable. Amazing!

The other great quality of Benoît's games is the tremendous verve and energy that he generates as he drives along the action. He manages to set just the right level of challenge, allowing his players to enjoy the games but feel pushed close to their limits.  It goes without saying he is very knowledgeable on the rules and clearly spends a serious amount of time to properly prep his games.

I know of no other Venture Captain who has done more to encourage and organize an exchange of players throughout Europe. He is a very welcome visiting GM to our UK games conventions and without his help we would often be stuck for language support. And, of course he is a wonderful host to players from all over Europe at his own convention in Geneva, Switzerland. Well done Benoît!
