I'm very new to Pathfinder, having just played in two Monday night PF2 Society events at Mox Boarding House since January 20th. Because I own a lot of digital 1st-ed books on Paizo that I've never used, I was very interested in creating a 1st-ed character to use with the materials. I was excited to find out about Mox Mini Con on 2/15 in Bellevue and started to create my very first character, a male dwarf witch, on this site. On closer review of the posted adventures for Mox Mini Con, however, there aren't any for 1st-level characters!
So I have an initial dilemma of, if I want to participate as a 1st-ed level 1 character that I've created, what is a recommendation to get them to level 4 in organized play? Are there any local events coming up in the Seattle area that should have a 1st-level adventure that I can join (maybe PaizoCon will still have PF1 games for 1st-level)? My fear is that, because of the push of 2nd-ed content in organized play, 1st-ed is being discarded despite such a rich legacy of material. If my character was just 3 more levels higher, I would be able to participate Saturday in the 1st-ed games, so it's that case of too late to the party.
Thank you for any recommendations that you might have regarding this. I know that I could just create a 2nd-ed character for Saturday, and my plan as a longtime 3.5-ed D&D player had been to get a feel for the 1st-ed of PF before I move forward with 2nd-ed.
Taraka - for this weekend, I think your only option will be to play a 4th level Pregen.
Are you on [url=http://nwpfs.org/]nwpfs.org[/ulr]? Posting there in the forums would likely garner you more local assistance. PFS1 is still being played in the area and if there are requests for low-level games, I am sure people will step forward to GM/play. Most new players are going into PFS2 though.
There are some great modules that can be played through for faster advancement.
Let me know if you need help contacting someone there. I was hoping to come up for the day but realised in conflicted with a convention I am attending here in CA.
Thanks for the recommendations! I didn't really want to play a pregen at this point, and while I got a copy of the 2nd ed rulebook from the county library (and ordered one at 46% of the cover price from a seller on Amazon, which is shipping its way to me), I haven't had time to make a 2nd ed character for today, so I won't be attending today either. :(
On the upside, it's only a matter of time until I have a 2nd ed character all ready to go while I'm waiting for a PF1 game! :D
I am a member of the NWPFS forums, and I posted here since there was a specific thread about this con. I wanted to post right on the event description page, and the site wouldn't let me start the discussion there. As you had predicted, there have been no other options for a 1st-level 1st ed character adventure (it would have been too late to organize it really). While unfortunate, I've kind of come to terms with having to wait until another event. Hopefully PaizoCon will be coming with some PF1 goodness for new characters!
