Yes, aid characters are at risk, so I don't think they can be played elsewhere during the special.

Ah. That's a shame for those of us who play at tables and online. In practice, this means I won't have any aid characters to bring to the special.

My first time GM'ing for PFS (although not my first time GM'ing PbP for PF). I am running a CORE level 1-2 module and already have 3 signups, so I thought I'd start getting ready.

I know how to use Google Docs for maps, quick-reference text boxes (e.g. Init/Perception), and so on. I'll set that up as soon as I get the scenario. The PFS reporting is new to me, though.

Is it correct that for Outpost, I do not need to Create an Event in the "My Organized Play" section? I'll just create a campaign thread by using "Add New Thread" on "Online Campaigns/Play-by-Post", and then report the game through the Outpost reporting link?

Correct.

You have it correct. Once reported through the Outpost reporting link the online VO team will take that information and report it to the Paizo event. This way we can track tables and boons to send out as well.

How will aid characters be interacted with during the special? I understand that the primary character is of course tied up with this mission during the length of the scenario, and thus cannot be used in any other pfs tables during that time (standard PbP pfs stuff), but are characters assigned to an aid role also subject to this restriction?

As there is a higher than normal risk of death for each of your characters during this Special I would consider them locked out of other games for the time frame of the Special.

Even with the potential of death it is a very fun scenario! I highly recommend it and bringing aid characters,

If I need to use them in other games during that long PbP window, then it doesn't matter how much fun the aid character play may be, because I can't participate in it.

Core table has been added for the Pathfinder Special (Siege of Gallowspire). Please check the signup sheet found below if you wished to play Core.

If we're not running one of the Specials, and everyone at the "table" is ready, may we begin early?

Unfortunately not. To receive credit for the Con you must start after March 30 and have your game reported in by May 18, 2020.


Out of curiosity, Gameday was 9-10 weeks long and Outpost is 7 - is that intentional?

Dark Archive 4/5 Venture-Captain, Online—PbP aka Tyranius

Gameday is our far bigger online convention. The reason this one is 7 weeks long as we did not want to overlap with PlayDis Con 2020, allowing a short reprieve for folks to go over new scenarios. That and Outpost needs to be done before Paizocon as quite a few folks from the online community attend there. This gives the VO team enough time to finish reporting games and sending out chronicles.


Two tables for "The Protectorate Petition" and I'm the only one signed up?

Did everyone already run/played this one when it came out? Os is it the least popular low-level tier scenario for some other reason?

It's lovely, but it's also been around for a while now.

If you don't mind someone who's GM'd it 3 times but has never gotten the chance to play it, I'm your huckleberry :)

Crossposting!

Attention Outpost III Players.

We’ve had signups open for a week now and while a lot of tables have enough players to fire, we still have many openings including a number of tables that really need more players.

As such, starting now, we are raising the signup cap to 5 tables per player. You may also sign up for both the Pathfinder and Starfinder specials (these special count against your max table limit).

As always, sign up for more games only if you know you can handle posting regularly to all of them. This goes doubly for the specials. Please only sign up for both if you can be certain to post every day to both.

As a reminder for newer players, a character can only be played in one game at a time and you may only have a single character at a given table.

Thanks and happy gaming,
Mike Hallet

Bah... was waiting for that... but still got ninjad on the one I was waiting to sign in on. =)

I be too slow!


How do you sign up for these games? Totally new to PFS.

5/5 5/55/5

The player signups sheet can be found HERE. You're going to be interested in the games colored [yellow].

I see you haven't registered for a Society # through your Paizo account, yet, and you don't have any characters. If you need any help with that, let us know!

I have always wanted to do a PbP, but have 0 clue as to what I need to do get setup to play.

I have all of my characters registered to my account, but really only have the names filled in. Is there somewhere that can walk me through what I need to do to participate, or should I just sign up and sync up with the GM?

PbP Player Guides

Give this document a look over. Sign up on one of the games on the signup sheet posted above and PM the GM associated with the game to link up.

If you have further questions let us know and we can help walk you through the process. After a couple days of posts you will be an expert. :)

I cannot find or reach my players? Now what? Like Starfinder Casper for instance, he has no number and I can't find him in the search results under users. 勝20100 don't exist in users either.

Dark Archive 4/5 Venture-Captain, Online—PbP aka Tyranius

Let me take a look and see if I can locate them.

Dark Archive 4/5 Venture-Captain, Online—PbP aka Tyranius

Here are links to their profiles.

  • Starfinder Casper Profile (Link)
  • 勝20100 Profile (Link)


  • For those of us who created threads after people signed up om the spreadsheet, how should we let them know the threads are up? Post in Recruitment, post in Flaxseed, PM them, or just wait?

    Can people begin introducing themselves in the Gameplay thread, or is that off-limits until the convention formally starts?

    You can certainly send PM's or post your link with their names in the recruitment thread for the individuals to report to their games.

    You can roleplay and introduce to your heart's content just no actual printed scenario material until the start date.


    Crap, I already did post background stuff. Any recourse?

    2/5 Venture-Agent, Online—PbP aka Lady Ladile

    ^Just throw the brakes on things and don't proceed any further than the mission briefing (which is where I assume you're at) until the official start date. This happens sometimes, especially when we have folks who are new to GMing PbP and/or our online conventions. Just remember it for next time :)


    Okay, sorry.

    It's okay! And looking back I realize that we never specified that outright in our initial post/FAQ so that's something for us to remember to do in the future.

    Question: I am reaching out to see if some people I know might be interested in joining, due to the circumstances. However, my Starfinder character with SS-LE reputation isn't one that I'm playing this go-round. Can I still claim the faction bonus for introducing new players on a character that isn't actively at one of the tables?

    Sent you a message on Discord to help clear up some of this.

    Haven't signed up on any of this because there's been no time to play another game, and it doesn't look like the time will be freeing up any time soon since I work in retail given the current situation worldwise.

    May all your hits be crits.

    I've currently got a table with 3 sign ups (line 89 on the sheet). Based on a lack of any further people signing up after advertising the table, I'm thinking its probably going to stay that way. For in-person play I'd normally throw in a pregen and run with the 4-player adjustments.

    Is this also fine for Outpost?

    Yes, we use standard Organized Play rules, though hopefully, someone will sign up last moment. If not, perhaps one of the other players is willing to run a pregen for the party.

    Thanks, that's my hope too.
