I think the folks playing at tier 15-16 have the right idea about organizing their tables in advance, so I’m starting up this thread for those of us playing tier 7-8.

My wife, our kids (18 & 15), and I are playing Siege of Gallowspire in tier 7-8 (Champion). We will be level 9 by the time the special starts on Saturday night. If you might be interested in pre-mustering to fill a table in advance, here is an overview of our party:

- Ruby Bullroarer, halfling unchained barbarian 9, wielding an earthbreaker from atop her mighty dog animal companion, Barleybrew;
- Murgeath Bittersword, winged dwarf alchemist (grenadier) 9, throwing all the bombs when he isn't imbuing his glaive-guisarme with alchemical weapons, wears a pair of intelligent goggles from a charity boon that gives him exceptional trapfinding;
- Lucilienne Skydiamond, elf cleric of Desna 9, buffer, support, back-up archer, diplomat, singer, a bit of a hippie, and our good luck charm; and
- Kepli Lindenbrook, halfling jinx haunted oracle of time 9, angry master librarian, debuffer, knowledge skills, and diplomacy when necessary; pretty much Lucilienne's opposite, he's nobody's good luck charm.

We have been playing PF for about 6 years, mostly APs and PFS scenarios run at home, but all four of us have played both specials and a number of other PFS scenarios at each of the last two Gen Cons, and my son and I both also play PbP through Flaxseed Lodge. We play to have fun; we're not power-gamers, but we know how to play our characters and work together. If you want to see an example of our play style when we have a chance to cut loose, you can find it here and a little more from last year's special here.

Our strengths:
- hitting things very hard with a big hammer;
- blowing things up;
- many different rerolls/rolling twice and taking the best;
- debuffs and fear effects;
- knowledge checks;
- diplomacy;
- finding & disabling traps.

Gaps/relative weaknesses:
- battlefield control - although we've gotten pretty good at covering the field (Murgeath has wings, Ruby rides her dog everywhere, and Kepli and Luci can each teleport 10' per level per day), having someone who can toss out Black Tentacles or even Entangle now and then would be nice;
- stealth - nope; casting Silence and drinking potions of invisibility are all we've got; and
- we each have a weak save we're working on improving.

Obviously, we're more concerned with having a good time than with having a perfectly optimized and balanced party, but if we're thinking about balance at all, we would probably be most interested in joining up with Pathfinders who are some combination of (in no particular order):
- a ranged/switch hitter martial;
- another front-liner to split the battlefield with Ruby; and/or
- arcane or nature-based casting (battlefield controller preferred, but we also love bards!).

Aid characters: I'll bring my 6th level arcanist, but otherwise we'll be relying on the level 4 pregens.

4/5

Greetings! I think the thread is a good idea. Posting b/c I am a tier 7-8 GM (Soldier rather than Champion, alas). :)
