Hello all,
Signups for both players and GM's for the APCon 2015 event are now open!
When is APCon? It will take place during between June 26 - June 28.
Where is APCon? It is fully online, using various virtual tabletop programs and voice/video chat.
Where do I sign up? Signups will be handled through the APCon 2015 Warhorn
Can I submit a game to GM? Of course! Information about how to submit a game request to us can be found at the following web form . As is usual for online events, we will be offering multiple VTT programs and multiple language (English/French/German) games based on availability of Gamemasters. Time slots for game submission are open 24 hours a day!
How can I participate? Sign up! During the event, we will have a chat going where HQ Staff can help connect players to games that have open spots. The chat will also be used to coordinate tables during the multitable specials. Last year during the Conline and Aethercon events, the players had a lot of fun working together and encouraging each other!
What kind of events can I expect at Conline? While we are hosting Open GM submissions, the staff is running a number of tables from end of season 6, and the latest specials from Paizocon! There will also be Non-PFS play from both Pathfinder and Other systems
Featuring:
Pathfinder Society Scenario #6–20: Returned to the Sky
Pathfinder Society Scenario #6–21: Tapestry's Toil

Pathfinder Society Scenario #6–22: Out of Anarchy

Pathfinder Society Scenario #6–23: The Darkest Abduction

First time trying to play online? Check out our online play guide at the PFS Online VO Blog
We encourage any new players to try out an online PFS game before the convention; you can find signups for such games at the Grand Lodge Online Play
Participants will have a chance to earn spots in raffles for PFS Player Boons, and Prizes from Paizo.

APCon 2015 is being hosted by APGamingREAL , a Gaming/Roleplaying media livestream/actual play for the Pathfinder system, Pathfinder Society, and other Tabletop RPG’s. You can find our past campaigns at Youtube
or catch us live evenings at Twitch.tv

If you have any questions please submit to arthur@pathfindersocietyonline.com

The Exchange *****

I thought they weren't releasing the specials until after Gencon? Did they change this or did you get permission somehow? (Sorry I may have also misinterpreted what my VO friends have told me and am just wrong. If that is the case, I would love to know so that I can attempt to get this stuff scheduled for my local conventions if possible.)

Grand Lodge ***** Global Organized Play Coordinator

6-97 and 6-98 are not available until after Gen Con.

Sovereign Court ****

With the new specials off limits, any desire to runs some of the older ones? (Like season 2,3,or 5 he asks selfishly) :)

The Exchange *****

Yeah, I'd be totally down to GM any older specials that are put up. Need to get to the magic number 10.

Grand Lodge

I want to take part in this convention, but my only current character is a CORE 1, which no events seem open for (not your fault, i'm new but passionate). If I brought a pregen 4 to https://warhorn.net/events/ap-con-2015/schedule/2015/06/28/sessions/76052 (i selected this bc it's Core)

- Would my Core 1 be able to apply credit for the event after he hits 4?
- Would I and the group have any measure of fun having a pre-made at the table?
- Would the DM of this have a personal problem with it, in which case I wouldn't want to do it anyway.

Thanks much, and I look forward to either seeing y'all or rooting you on silently from the forums :D

In order.

Yes.
Yes, especially if you pick a pregen to fill a role not covered by the party makeup.
I would not have a problem with it.

Grand Lodge

<3 and yeah of course if I am bringing a pre-made it will obviously be something the group needs, even if he will be missing prestige items like the 50-charge wand

I have never done this before, but will check out the links

I'll check out scheduling arrangements, but I might go for hosting "We Be Goblins!" (CORE) on Roll20, since I already have the setup ready for it.

Grand Lodge *** Venture-Lieutenant, California—San Diego aka Michael_Hopkins

I'll take a look see after the minicon I'm going to this weekend.

Hmm, it's too bad I'm busy with work during this time. Otherwise, I'd be happy to volunteer to run a few sessions. =(

For Year of the Shadow Lodge, how do I designate that my PC is core and wants to play at a core table?

Scarab Sages *****

During the RSVP mails, we will be asking for players and GM's to submit their preferences.

Liberty's Edge *****

Starfinder Superscriber

Isn't that rather personal?

OH! You mean preferences for Core vs. Normal! That's all good then.

Grand Lodge ***** Venture-Captain, Arizona—Phoenix aka TriOmegaZero

I can finally play my paladin again, now that he has survived Bonekeep! Even better, he's my Spirit of the Shadow Lodge character! :D

Liberty's Edge *****

Starfinder Superscriber

Three more tables needed to reach the 50-table count.

(Actually, I think it's a few more than that, because you can't count the Bonekeeps in that.)

* Venture-Captain, Germany–Hannover aka Hayato Ken

I think there might be some german tables incoming.
At least something is in the planning there as far as i know.

***

What happens if we don't hit 50 tables?

Shadow Lodge *****

I submitted session 55, hopefully that is enough.

Awesome. =)

Umm... Do the tables need to fill up to count?

Silver Crusade **

Dotting. Thinking of submitting to run a table, just need to figure my schedule.

*****

Oh, hey. German. Das schwetsche ich. Do you regularly have games in German?

I always thought 15 was the magic number, not 50? Why is 50 significant?

Look here. Also if you PM me where you live, there is a chance you could be hooked up with some table games.

15 is for convention support, 50 is for later Bonekeeps (until such time as they individually become exclusives and not specials) and the most recent Interactives.

This is my first time mustering a table via Warhorn. How do I get the e-mail addresses of my players?

The organizer will send out an email with them, usually asking them to send you their character info. If it is one of the multitable specials, there will be some back-and-forth, first, getting groups of players setup to get an APL, and then assigning the GMs, per request, to each table.

Speaking of which, what is general online ediquette for character sheets/stats? Do we need a full character sheet prepared? I want to be ready for the game I signed up for as I rarely play online.

You should make sure that you have a full electronic character sheet that you can send to the GM if he asks for one, much like you would also have a character sheet available for the GM in a RL game.

You also should find a picture of your character to represent him or her much like you would bring a mini to a RL table.

Best if your character token is sized right, but usually not a problem, if the GM can still grab an edge of the image to shrink it to fit.

Makes me want a Zombie image: "Token! Token!"

Initial information, typically, is PFS number, PC number, PC name, player name, faction, slow/normal, and, especially at higher levels, a thumbnail of anything funky your PC can do.

Some will want your full character sheet, others may just ask for a few specific items. Some may even ask for your last Chronicle or ITS.

Liberty's Edge *****

Nominally, you should have all of your chronicle sheets available in a form the online GM cam review should she want to. It's rare for a GM to ask for that, but it is the rule of PFS.

***** Venture-Lieutenant, Georgia—Atlanta aka Yiroep

Thanks for the advice all! I am mostly ready for the game I signed up Sunday. :)

It says there will be a chat to direct people. Is there a link to that chat or will that be provided later?

Sczarni **

The links to the chat were sent last night (I'm GMing so it may have been GMs only) and have been posted on the Pathfinder Society Online Collective forum on Google on this convention's thread.

From an email from Arthur sent out about 3 hours ago:

In just a few hours, we will be closing signups on the warhorn; any further signups will be handled during the con at the IRC chat:

Hi

On the Sunday APCon Warhorn schedule there are 2 games w openings. Can I get into an open spot?

TY

Grand Lodge ***** Venture-Captain, Arizona—Phoenix aka TriOmegaZero

Send an email to arthur@pathfindersocietyonline.com with the specific table you want in the subject and include your character's race/class/level combo so he knows what subtier to try and fit you in, if there are multiple.

** Venture-Agent, France—Paris aka 勝20100

I just wanted to thank the GMs, players and organizers for this event. I hadn’t played for months and I’m glad I had the opportunity.

AP,

Thanks for offering this gaming opportunity.  Sorry that I missed it... THIS time.

BB.

Sovereign Court ****

Awesome events! Thanks to the organizers.


That was my first online PFS game and I greatly enjoyed it. I needed some hand holding at first, but its not that much different than F2F. Thanks for putting this together.
