I know at this point we're at the mercy of GenCon to add the events to the official schedule but is there any chance we can get info on what's available?

AL schedule as well as adventure descriptions is available there even though it isn't up on the GenCon page yet.

Any chance we can get something like that? The complete unavailability of information other than the specials is driving me bonkers and making it difficult to coordinate with friends.

PFS1E, SFS, and card game are now listed. Still waiting for PFS2E.

Thanks for the head up!

Sovereign Court ***

The Passing the Torch scenarios are listed as 12-15. Is that a typo?
Those scenarios are listed as 12-18 on their product pages.

Could be they can't/don't want to deal with complexity in mustering across three subtiers of these scenarios, so are only offering them in the listed ones, skipping the 17-18 tier?

Shadow Lodge ****

I was wondering this as well. If they offer the 17-18 tier i would definitely try and play 10-22 and 10-23. My 18 wizard or gunslinger need some exercise.

I'd just like to confirm that 15 will be the maximum level for the two Passing the Torch scenarios at GenCon. I'm asking because it affects some high level play plans that I'm putting together.


Will there be PFS 2nd edition at GenCon, actually?

Yep.

Let me know if you want to GM, and I can add the slots and scenarios for you.

There was some technical difficulty with listing them that is being worked on but yes, there will be PFS2E games most, if not all sessions. (I am not sure if there are any scheduled against the two multi-table specials.)

There will also be PF2E demos in the Exhibit Hall near the Paizo booth.

As Steven Schopmeyer pointed out, there will be a large scale seating of the L5 Pre-gen special, Thursday evening.

Is this the first list of the names of the first PFS(2) scenarios?
From the GenCon event search:

1-00: Origin of the Open Road (previously announced)
1-01: Absalom Initiation
1-02: The Mosquito Witch
1-03: Escaping the Grave

Yes those should be them!

Liberty's Edge *** Venture-Captain, Nebraska—Omaha

Wonder which of these I will be running?

Am I reading the Gen Con schedule correctly?

1. There will be PFS 1E scenarios run in the Sagamore Ballroom during the Friday night SFS special?

2. There is no option for level 9 (or 14) characters in either Tier for The Siege of Gallowspire? It looks as though the tables are broken up by levels: 5-6, 7-8, 10-11, 12-13, 15-16.

**

You can play up or down a tier if there is no tier for your specific level when it comes to multi-table specials.

EDIT: The non-MTS scenario tickets look experimental. There's only enough tickets for 1 table each.

Grand Lodge ***** Regional Venture-Coordinator, Great Lakes aka TwilightKnight

Yes there will be 1E and 2E tables running at the same time as the SFS special. During all of the specials there will be tables of the other two systems running so players who are not interested in the system the special uses can still play.

10-98 is no different than any other special we’ve ever run. There has always been a gap at 9 (in early seasons it was at 7). The rule that says you can legally play up or down one sub-tier still apply, though we generally recommend that level 9 PCs play in the sub-tier 7-8 to avoid exposure to overwhelming enemies.

***** Venture-Agent, California—San Francisco Bay Area North & East aka Pirate Rob

1 Table of 10-12.
2 Tables of the other PFS adventures.
3-4 tables of PFS 2 adventures.

Don't forget that more tables can get added as well based on demand.

Got it - thanks, everyone! This will be my family's third Gen Con, and we've never had characters that high level before.

Well, turns out I was worried over nothing - the 7-8 and 10-11 tables sold out (Soldier Tier) before my wish list was processed. There were plenty of open tables in the Champion Tier, but none with enough tickets for all four of us. So now we wait for (I hope) more tables to be added.
