It’s with great pleasure that I announce Eastern Washington’s newest 5 star GM: Robert Pepka!

I first met Bobby outside of PFS, before Pathfinder even existed as a standalone format. We drifted from Shadowrun to 3rd edition before settling on Pathfinder.

Our original travels through Shadowrun took us from Seattle to the subcontinent by plane, where we tried to make some scratch selling an elephant on the black market. When that plan fell through, and we were forced to release the beast somewhere over Puget Sound, we adventured in Eberron for a time. After a couple of years there and with the timeline irrevocably destroyed, we headed to the world of Dark Sun. It was there we faced our greatest challenges, but earned the greatest rewards, rising up against the god kings and succumbing to our own dark desires.

Seeking a reprieve from the stress and madness that were our homebrew campaigns, we stumbled upon PFS and the rest, as they say, is history.

Bobby met the 150+ tables GM’d requirement for his 5th star some time ago, but only recently ran his 10th special. I was fortunate enough to play at his qualifying special table this past GenCon, along with my partner in crime Steven Huffstutler.

I won’t speak for Steve, but in my mind there’s no one that more embodies what it means to be a 5 star GM than Bobby. He’s ever prepared and prepped for his games, eager to step up and run tables that need to be mustered, excited to educate new players, enthusiastic with his roleplaying, encyclopedic with his knowledge of rules and lore, evenhanded with his dispensing of table rulings, and some other “e” word that means freaking awesome.

Way to go Bobby, you earned it!

Congratulations Bobby,

One of the games Bobby GMed for me started with a frightening encounter and we quickly determined we really needed a scout. No PCs could effectively scout & after much discussion I had to summon an earth elemental (it was the only thing with a shared language on any of the players' list).

I asked the elemental a question and Bobby stared kind of blankly at me for a second. I thought we had ventured too far off the map. But the voice that came rumbling up in response was so gravelly and deep, the words chosen so solid, he immediately nailed it. So kudos for being able to roll with PC tactics and creating memorable NPCs.

Also my first PFS death. :)

Thank you all for the kind words! :) Looks like the Paizo.com database isn't quite up to date yet, but I'm sure that'll be taken care of eventually.
