I'm planning on playing 10-98 at GenCon with my 15th level Ranger Archer. I coming to GenCon solo so no preset group for me. At GenCon 50, I was able to play the specials at tables that we premustered here on the boards and it was great! I'd like to do that again. The problem is there are now two different versions: Soldier and Champion. If I'm going Pot-Luck Saturday night, I think I'd prefer Soldier. If I'm in a well rounded pre-mustered group, Champion sounds like fun.

So Anyone interested in premustering Siege of Gallowspire (15-16)?

I'm hoping to get into a 15-16 level Champion game, may the wishlist processor gods smile down upon me. My 16th level Unchained Monk will be coming out of retirement.

I’m also planning on 15-16 Champion, with either a 16 archer warpriest (liberation and good domains), or a 16 aether kineticist (>350hp woohoo).

Playing my level 12 or 13 character at this event, champion, hopefully everyone that shows up will be awesome like it has been in the past. And if we go down... well, at least the end was epic.

Candi (bloodrager (arcane)/"Paladin of Calistria"), who will be 16th level by GenCon, hopes to do 15-16 Champion.

I have this wonderful friend who would love to meet you, dear. She's a bit stuffy, but what can you do with a Pharasmin?

Just a reminder, tickets for specials are sold by sub-tier and in this case further sub-divided by soldier and champion. Be careful to buy the ticket for the specific table you wish to play. Any/all real tickets not being used for the table designated will be converted into priority generic tickets. Meaning that if you chose not to sit at the table that your ticket indicates, you will be shunted to the generic ticket line. However all real tickets in the line will be seated in first come-first serve order based on our available seating and prior to actual generic tickets.

If I'm understanding correctly, the following might happen:

- I want to play Tier 10-11 Soldier, but all those tickets are sold out.
- So I buy a Tier 5-6 Soldier ticket, planning to use it as a "priority generic."
- When the mustering happens I choose not to use my 5-6 Soldier ticket, and wait in line hoping to get into 10-11 Soldier.

But, there's a chance this might backfire horribly.
- It turns out there are no open seats in 10-11 Soldier.
- Since other people with "priority generics" have been seated, someone may have taken my "real-ticket" 5-6 Soldier seat that I didn't use. (Say, someone who bought a 15-16 Champion ticket to use as a priority generic hoping to get into 5-6 Soldier.) But that was my second-choice tier to play.
- By the time the priority generic merry-go-round slows, I may only have a couple of choices left. So I have to decide between 15-16 Soldier or 7-8 Champion (as examples).

So I better be really sure I understand the risks before I gamble on the priority generic line.

Not going to lie I was hoping for an 18-19 tier so I could bring my Barbarian, have his last hurrah be against the Whispering Tyrant. Would have been an epic way to get him to 20.

Oh well. Maybe he'll have some use as a support character?

Ok now that I have my 15-16 Soldier ticket, my monk is ready to go adventuring. Anyone else want to come along for the ride? Have a bottle of whiskey!

I know you are kidding, but I wanted to remind everyone that the convention center is a no-alcohol area. Do not bring open inebriates into the Sag. Of course we would also appreciate if you did not arrive to your game heavily influenced. If you imbibe during breaks, please be responsible. Thx

--EDIT--the convention center is also a smoke-free area. This includes vaping, electronic cigarettes, etc.

Sorry for the derail. We now return you to your regularly scheduled thread :-D

I believe it's still impossible to request a gm/get one ahead of the slot's start time, correct? I have a 15-16 group that'll be going in together, would be nice to have a GM who knows what to expect and prep for first.

Impossible - I was at a table that did it two years ago - twice.

Difficult - Yes.
Worth It - Yes.

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

We will have a process by which a full table (six) of players can pre-muster for a slot in which they all have registered tickets for, but it is all done on site. We do not take reservations in advance of the event.

GMs are assigned a specific sub-tier and do not have to prep the others so they will generally know what to expect when they are preparing their table.

Nah, I know they'll be prepping for a specific sub-tier. I meant more with prepping for the players. ;)

It'll be fun to bring the insanity once more.

Alas, we had a group planning to do 15-16 Champion, but I was the only one to get that ticket, the rest got 15-16 Soldier.

Hopefully level 15 by gencon but rn 13 investigator 1 fighter I'm ranged so I can stay back and shoot and I have tons of utility

I have a crossblood lava gnome sorcerer who specializes in Fireball to great effect. I will likely have a ninja with me as my son is leveling him up before Gen Con. If no ninja, then he will bring his half-elf fighter archer that he has played across five Gen Cons. My other buddy is likely bringing his oracle with the life mystery and healing out the ying-yang or his skald.

We would love to organize before hand and super optimize our table.

We are in champion playing 16th Level PFS characters.

Thanks!

Edit: My sorcerer knows Named Bullet due to having the archer with her, so I will cast that on you no issue. Plus Haste and other buffs of course...

Got in the 15-16 Champion slot after a couple hours of checking for dropped tickets.

I will be playing my nigh-unkillable level 16 monk.

But like normal, if we show up to muster early and have four to six, they will try and seat us together right? I know sometimes they cannot, but they try their best.

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

In years past I was able to muster with a group and with a GM willing to run the table.

Since we don't know what tier each GM will get we can't really ask for a specific one.

But there was a process that did allow a group to muster for a specific GM.

As always, Leads will have the final say on the matter.

Hopefully the area near this line can be a swap meet for ticket holders to maximize the number of people who get to be where they want to be.

In my case, I got the ticket I wanted, but now I'm cut off from my group. I'm sure that has happened to lots of people when we are dealing in such low numbers per category. In retrospect, maybe it would have been better to have had fewer tiers to increase player flexibility.

At this point the entire Gallowspire event appears sold out so I would show up for the game that I have the ticket to play. It will be difficult to swap tables as the higher levels do not have pregens available and not everyone will have a 15th or 16th level PFS character available.

****

Sure, but more than 84 people have level 15-16 characters. Heck, the people in my intended party have at least two 15th level characters each because we were previously told to have two characters for this scenario.

The Champion tickets sold out first for this tier, so I'm still going to hold out hope that I can trade my highly desired ticket. My teammates would also be willing to swap their Soldiers to join me in Champion if another team has reconsidered playing "hard mode".

** Venture-Agent, Canada—Saskatchewan—Regina aka Cordawg

so my character will be level 15 by gencon so I will be in tier so my character will be a level 14 investigator/ 1 fighter like I said I am a utility support character but I can hold my own I am really excited for this special

Help wanted. Seeking qualified party to assist in penetrating lich stronghold. Experience in ward-breaking and defusing necromantic rituals preferred, but not required. Must work well with others or at least have your own s#$$ squared away. Hostage negotiation skills likely unneeded; diplomancers need not apply. Current team has been working together for some time. Existing party makeup: Wiz 16 (conjuration specialist), Cleric 16 (fiery servant of Sarenrae), Inquisitor 16 (horn bow of baneful clustered justice), Battle oracle 16 (cornugon smashing tank), and Rogue 14/Barb 4 (ugly spring attacking trap monkey). Reasonable rewards. Body recovery will be provided if required.

Highest tier champions. Serious inquiries only.

10-98 Siege of Gallowspire only goes up to 16. Perhaps you are thinking 10-22/10-23 which go up to 18.

Rogue barbarians don't do math. The wizard said I was in the right tier- that's good enough for me.

(he's R12/B4)

Calum, if I knew for sure I wasn't going to be able to trade my Champion ticket, my 15th level Bard or my 15th level Duelist/Lore-Warden/Swashbuckler would fit nicely into your party. But I better not apply yet. Good luck.


Got my ticket for 15-16 Champion mode, I'm a level 16 arcanist that specializes in counterspelling and dispelling, and I'm bringing a level 15 martial friend with me


I failed to get into this completely. It sold out crazy fast. (Are they running fewer tables or something, I dont remember other games running along side this last year) what are the odds I'll be able to get in with generics? Good, possible, or am I just sol?

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

Yes we are running fewer tables this year, but that has more to do with the reduction in GM volunteers than the fact that we are running alternative scenario to the special. That was a request for the past two years. People who only play one game system miss out on an entire slot if we only run the one event. Say you are a player who is only interested in PF1E. If we followed our past process, you would have nothing to play on Thursday and Friday night this year. So, we added roughly a dozen or so tables of the other two game systems when the specials are running in the PM. You have the ability to play any game system in any slot.

We have received more GM volunteers since the catalog went live last month so we'll have more tickets added to the availability of many events in the catalog. And we continue to get more volunteers each week which will allow us to add even more tickets.

Generic tickets depends on (1) if the event sells out, and (2) if everyone with a real ticket actually shows up for their seat. We do not hold GMs in reserve for generic tickets. As we've gotten better with matching GMs to ticket counts, the availability of generic ticket seating has significantly decreased. I would guess that a few people may get to play with generic tickets, and I would not expect that number to be very large especially in the PM slots.

Any idea when you will be posting more slots?

Based on a similar question on the Slack channel for the volunteers, it sounds like the slots have already been sent to GenCon to process... The wait now is when GenCon completes that and adds them to the system. I personally recommend checking regularly, as there's no telling exactly when that'll happen, and someone may not be able to post it here before they're all gone again.

Grand Lodge ***** Venture-Agent, Florida—Melbourne aka trollbill

Yeah, I have been doing that. Still kind of shocked that this is the first year I haven't been able to get PFS Special Tickets. Oddly, my friend I was planning on playing with got tickets but I didn't even though I was 2000+ ahead of him in the queue.

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

On a similar note, if anyone has a ticket to 10-22 on Thursday morning we need one more player to have a premustered table.

Daosvaria and I shall be of the 14th level, I am an Arcanist of some ability. My master has secured a soldier ticket for tier 12-13. He has recruited a friend who will be bringing a ridiculous so-called comedian, also of the 14th level, that I find completely insufferable. Please help me end this tedium. Yes of course, Daosvaria, your conversation is scintillating, but I talk to you all the time. I need variety.

My fool master might have an extra ticket for tier 12-13 soldier, if someone would like to join us. If someone is looking for a session, send him a PM and he will let you know once the original person the ticket was purchased for confirms whether he is GMing I think he is
