It is not about iconography, but about humility, compassion, and community.

The child that is helped now is the child that will grow better, stronger, faster, harder for everyone.

The light of spirit is important to all, as is the means in which one provides it.

May wisdom and sobriety guide the path to victory.

So... Alchemist info at $5k? ;)
I haven't cleared any further goals with anyone else, and right now we're still behind HBO by less than the amount to hit 5k, and I'm about to head out to the tournament. If we get a last-minute surge in time for the tournament to place us ahead of HBO (right now that would be $211), we will definitely be grateful, but I can't promise additional bits to this (already monster-sized thanks to all of your generosity) blog.

Well, it was worth a shot ;)

Good luck with the event.

Wow, thanks to whoever made that huge last-minute donation for the familiar blog. I'm really excited to hear about them!

I would also like to thank Friend Anonymous. I didn’t have the cash this month to do more than a small amount — thank you for providing all those pairs of shoes!

Hmm

Or all those boxes of diapers.

Anyone tracking this thing online?

How is the Paizo team doing?

Final standings were just posted. Paizo was 11th out of 20 in the tournament. Wizards of the Coast - Blue (Magic the Gathering) won overall. Twitch came in second.

It turns out that the way Vye was scored, they didn't take your position in your game of Vye, but instead added up all the team members' scores to a total and scored that way. Furthermore, only the top few teams in the entire tournament received a different number of points from everyone else for Vye (5th and lower got the same tournament points), unlike any of the other rounds. Interestingly, due to how many points it was worth, this led to the top 3 teams in Vye were the top 3 teams in the tournament (the previous year's champs, who had crushed at Tak, didn't place there for Vye and came in 4th overall, still beating the 4th place Vye team). However, this didn't affect us because we did terribly in Valeria so were mostly scrabbling in the back of the pack to climb up from 16th place, and all the teams we were racing at that point scored the same in Vye, just like everyone else but the top few. But we then did amazingly at the Puzzle Hunt (as we predicted, that was the secret final round) and pulled into 11th (and we were a whisker away from placing in 8th due to the way tie-breakers worked based on fund-raising). Pretty good considering the stiff competition we faced every single round from some amazing teams.

Thanks again to everyone who donated! The people from Wellspring were incredibly grateful at how much you helped us raise to help homeless families and children break the cycle of homelessness.

Yay! Hope you all had a blast participating ^w^


Congrats! I’m very excited for the megablog of content- build info for four classes, an item, and familiars!


Soooo... Do we have an ETA on the mega blog?... ='D

After Paizocon I hope and guess. I imagine there was some interest in getting it out this week, and then the forum mods unplugged the computer of the person that suggested dropping more paladin chum into the water days before the con.

We still have our computers plugged in, and we're really trying to get it to you before the con, in a timely fashion as befits your incredible generosity. Everything is written and in editing, so cross your fingers. However, I will make a request to all of you: you have unlocked a mega-size blog due to an incredible effort of charity and kindness, so while more information probably gives more opportunities to be salty about something, please in the spirit of the Gauntlet, hold off on those posts until at least after Paizocon. Instead, let's focus on how amazing our community is in coming out with so much support, and especially if you really like something you see in the blog but you didn't have a chance to donate, be sure to thank those whose generosity helped unlock the content for everyone!


<claps> "Hear, hear!!" <claps> Even having these tidbits of info is awesome. Thanks guys!!

Oh it's more than tidbits. The total blog clocks in at roughly triple length, and each individual class section is usually a little over half the length of a usual class blog, so some pretty significant content!

Yummy info coming!

I'd like to say, it's great to see how the community chips in, and how the Paizo team responds to that by going the extra mile in recognition. Thanks, guys!


The real question is what day will this massive blog be shown?

Interesting - the bonus blog is in the normal Friday blog spot?

PaizoCon preempted the normal Blog.

There was no normal blog scheduled for today (nor monday) since all the staff are busy at Paizocon.


I must've missed that - given I'm in the UK, the particulars of PaizoCon tend to pass me by.


Quite curious that they put it in the wrong forum. Maybe they're just trying to expose more people that might have missed that this playtest is a thing that is happening.

It looks like it is in the right forum now.
