See posts #26 & 27 on the first page of this thread.

You can download the rulebooks for the base sets for free from their product pages. The Adventure Card Guild Guide is also a free download. There is also an extensive FAQ.

I'm not sure what this means; could you clarify, please, Redelia?

@Jason: I am pretty certain what they mean is, if you sign up for two RPG games, the *first* game can be anything, but the second game has to be either Cosmic Captive (which doesn't have many sign-ups at present), *or* a table that isn't being hosted on the Paizo.com website (on the sign-up sheets, these are usually denoted by a red 'fill' on the table header).

Probably a noob question(and also likely one i've asked before and simply forgotten the answer to because 'is dumb'= true)
Classic means all Paizo legal material, whereas core means only the Core rulebook right?

On that note are these games(Cosmic Captive RPG is the one i'm looking at in particular) Going to be held in PBP or at an actual table?

Lastly does a lvl 5 character qualify for a tier 3-4 game or is it tier 5?

2/5 *

Hi Lynn.
you can read about Core gaming here and read the CORE FAQ here. But basically you must make your character using only the Core rulebook (and a few online documents.) You can choose other options from chronicles as long as you have the book (even if it's not core), but you'll have to complete those scenarios.

The Cosmic Captive games will be held on PbP, on this forum and few other websites.

Level 5 PC in tier 3-4: It depends on the level range of the game you're trying to play. If it's a tier 3-7 game, then it has two subtiers: 3-4 and 6-7. You fit right in the middle, so you CAN play the game, but you'll receive out of tier gold (the average gold reward between those subtiers.)

I hope that helps!

Core characters should be created as core, too.

Cosmic Captive RPG will be held in PBP. We use the phrase 'table' to describe your campaign thread!

If there are no level 5 games, your level 5 can join a tier 3-4 table.

Hmm

There we go then, put myself on the waitlist for Cosmic Captive classic

GMs, the scenarios have started to drop!

4/5

Hmm... am I going to get one Christine?
Not sure I was listed for the Siege or not.

Silver Crusade 3/5 5/5 Venture-Lieutenant, Online—PbP

Yep, you're on the list, EM. I've now heard from a few people that things didn't drop for them, so it seems it was only a partial drop yesterday.

Liberty's Edge 2/5

Just following up. Are the scenarios still progressively dropping? I have yet to get mine. I know there are holidays and things so not overly worried, just asking.

I've been checking on this recently. Some people have found that their scenario already dropped, even though they did not get an email notice. Some have been dropping in the last 8 hours or so. If in about 24 hours you don't have the scenario in your downloads, please send me an email or private message so I can add you to a list of those who I need to investigate. Please include your Paizo registered email address in such a private message or email so I can check if that is the difficulty.

I got it a few hours after my post. Thanks all.

Are any tables still open for sign ups? Looking for a slot for level 9 character.

Silver Crusade 3/5 5/5 Venture-Lieutenant, Online—PbP

I don't think there are any high level slots, but looking over the spreadsheet (linked on the previous page) there are still a few slots for 1-2 and 3-4.

We would love to have you at the Roll For Combat low level tables! I know they are not for level 9s, but we will have fun!

1/5

Thanks for checking folks! My only low level char is already committed to a table. I have been meaning to check out Roll for Combat for a game, I definitely intend to do so. Glen, mind sending me a link to a game so I can lurk? Would like to see how the games are run on RFC.

2/5

Is it OK to change characters once you've signed up for a particular tier? I had signed up a 13th level bloodrager for tier 12-13 of Siege of the Diamond City, but now I'd rather play a cleric 10/unchained barbarian 2, in part because I think it would better complement the current party composition (also this is a cleric of Iomedae so bashing demons is sort of her raison d'etre).


Certainly! If your table has already started mustering it's good to let your GM know what you're doing - if not, you can go ahead and adjust your sign-up.

Cool, I’ve gone ahead and made the change to my sign-up.

Is it too late to get into a table? Looking through the signups for Diamond City, Shadow Lodge and Cosmic Captive(I've already played Stonelords), I don't see any openings for Classic. I put myself on the waitlists that exist on the sheets - is that all I need to do?

4/5 * RPG Superstar 2015 Top 16

Pretty much, Pete. Messaging you though.

Sovereign Court 4/5 5/55/55/55/5 * Venture-Agent, Georgia—Atlanta

A spot just opened up in Stonelords for 1-2 Classic on the Roll For Combat Discord.

Dark Archive 4/5 5/55/5 ***

There is a spot for 1 PC at my 14-15 table of Siege of the Diamond City.

Please PM me if you would like in.

Thank you!

I have a rogue that could play in the Stonelords game. I've never played pbp on discord though. Is it similar to here?

2/5

It looks likely that I will have a seat opening up at my Year of the Shadow Lodge 1-2 table. If you are interested head over to the sign up sheet and take the spot. I must remind you of the restrictions on the number of special you can sign up for though, so make sure you follow the rules.

***** ANNOUNCEMENT *****

I believe everyone has had a chance to sign up, so at this point, we are changing the restrictions on games. As of now, each player may sign up for two RPG games, as long as they are for different specials and at least one of the two is either Cosmic Captive or else not on Paizo.com. Each player may also sign up at one table of the Adventure Card Game, if they wish.

It is similar, a bit more chat like, and the formatting is slightly different.

Come on over to https://discord.gg/yNKcGAZ and check out some games that are already in progress and see if it might be to your liking.

If anyone knows ben.johnson (playing: Opulentus Praenuntius Felicitas "Felix" Henderthane) please have him contact me ASAP.

He has not reported for my Siege of the Diamond City campaign thread

4/5

So with the official start today, I notice that our table of the Stonelords is only at 4 folks.

I think the table was created from people off of the wait list, so its possible they don't realize they're signed up and missed the GM's call.

Any chance to fill in those empty spots?

Yep. Are you the GM? What level is the table?

Hmm

4/5

I am not, am just a player.
Khaoz is the GM. (Its a level 5-6 table)

I sent a pm to the two players unaccounted for. Too early to tell if that helps. =)

4/5 5/55/55/55/5 **

Tell Khaoz:

1) Make sure the vacancies are obvious on the Retrocon Player Sign-Up Sheet; and make sure there is a link to the table on the sign-up sheet. I posted a link to that sign-up sheet on Facebook.

2) He can also open his recruitment tab, and post there that he's looking for two players.

3) If someone wishes to play a pre-gen, we do sometimes allow level 7s in a 5-6. There is a whole pregen folder in the PBP GM Kit, and there is a link to that kit in my current profile.

As we edge closer to the end of Retrocon, did we have event IDs and the like? I am working on getting chronicles as pre-filled as I can.

Have the tables been entered on Paizo from Seige of the Diamond City? I don't see it reported for my character.

Should I contact my GM?

Grand Lodge 4/5 Venture-Lieutenant, Arizona—Phoenix

Contact your local VC with the table information and they should be able to check into it. Edit: The online VCs should also be able to assist and might be the better contact.

Grand Lodge 5/5 5/5

I just checked and my character also hasn't had Siege of the Diamond city reported from this Retrocon. I have the chronicle from the game, but it's not showing up under the organized play tab.

Silver Crusade 3/5 5/5 Venture-Lieutenant, Online—PbP

Due to technical difficulties with a new system we have been trying to use, RetroCon tables have not been reported yet.

Grand Lodge 5/5 5/5

That explains that then, thanks for letting us know

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

All the games have been reported, actually - so if you are not seeing something it probably is an error - drop us an email so we can investigate

Grand Lodge 4/5 Venture-Lieutenant, Arizona—Phoenix

What email would you like reporting errors to be submitted to?
