Chris and I were discussing running a bunch of Pathfinder scenarios and mods the Saturday and Sunday of GenCon (8/16 & 8/17). Please let us know if you'd be interested, what scenarios you'd like to see and if you are able to judge. Thanks, Jason.

    I just want to say it as a privilege to run this convention this weekend! I had a blast! I want to thank everyone for showing up. I hope you had fun. I want to thank Ryan, Ryan, Jeff and Jerry for judging. It was either one of their first, or their first time judging, so Hazzah to the judges! Thanks to Chris for getting us the space to hold the convention. I definitely want to do this again next year!

    So bummed I missed this past weekend. Sad but gaming bright side, I am being let go from my job so I'll have Monday's and Saturday's open again. Hope to see y'all soon.

  • Chris

    I am glad that everyone had a great time and it was good to see new and old faces. This is definitely something that Jason and I will look into doing again next year. With more adverts around the area.

    On a personal note I was excited to get my fourth judging star. So a big thank you goes out to those who played at my Assault on the World wound table. That group had a great deal of patience as we all worked our way through the special rules for that scenario.

    So, was wondering. After running We Be Goblins Too! One of the boons lets me take an Owlbear as a companion. Since WBG2 is a lvl 2-3, is there any way to add that boon to a level one character, or would I have to wait until level 2 to use that?

    August 17

    • Jeff Z.

      And how would I add the modifcations for the Owlbear? I know I get -4 on handle animal checks with it.

      August 17

    • Duane

      Jeff, I think the chronicle for WBG2 explains the changes needed to be made? Maybe look it up for the player you credited it to?

      August 17

  • Ryan M.

    I had a great time and a lot of fun running The Confirmation. I hope my players did as well!

    Thanks for putting this together Jason & Chris.

    I put information for two upcoming conventions (November & January) on the Suggested Meetup for those that may be interested.

      We certainly had a lot of fun - enough to get us hooked on Pathfinder! We are so coming again :-))!

    While I'm thanking people I cannot forget Geoff, Jill and Keith! They donated novels, (2) copies of hero lab, key chains, games, a 3ftX5ft map of Golarion, and they did not even attend the con! When you see them next please thank them for their donations.

    Looks like the first match ended. What time will the second begin?

    August 16

  • Todd

    Looks like the first may have expired

    August 16

  • Ryan M.

    Here…I think.

    August 16

  • Henddher

    I posted a google maps satellite view. It shows the barn on the northeast side and the second parking lot on the northwest side. Is that correct?

    August 16

  • Greg E.

    I am unfamiliar with the school and its layout, so will it be easy to find the event easily, or have some kind of signing that will or could help me or others to find the event location.

    August 15

    • Jason C.

      A good point. Jones Point Road is a stop light and after you turn on it the school is right there. It'll be on the left. Do not go into the first parking lot. Go to the next one and there you are.

      August 15

    • Chris

      Go past the barn and it is the parking lot on the left right after the barn. I will Have a sign on the door for people to let them know which building it is in.

      August 15

  • Henddher

    Hello all, if we don't make it at 8am, will we be "excommunicated" for the rest of day? I don't know if we will be there that early.

    August 15

    • Chris

      Next game starts around 12:30

      August 15

  • Chris

    The Horn of Aroden, For months Taldor faction leader Lady Gloriana Morilla has mustered a small army to aid the Mendevian Crusade; however, without a powerful, unifying icon to rally around, progress is slow. When her agents learned of a dormant relic that might be awakened, she petitioned the Pathfinder Society for its aid in recovering this so-called Horn of Aroden, knowing that the Society would benefit from her army’s hastened arrival. The PCs travel to Brevoy, a fragmented land of dueling, cold, and conquest to secure this horn, though in doing so they join an ongoing plot of politics and intrigue.

    August 12

    • Duane

      #5:19 and levels 1-5.

      August 15

  • Duane

    OMG... I just had an update with HeroLabs. They officially took away the playtest classes...so if you made any there, you lost them(I didn't). And now the only factions there are: Dark Archive, Grand Lodge, Liberty Edge, Scarab Sages, Silver Crusade, Sovereign Court, The Exchange.

    August 14

    • Geoffrey

      You did not lose them, you just can't access them until you purchase the ACG data package.

      August 15

    • Duane

      That's a relief. Like I said, I hadn't gotten into them that much. But I think that's on the list until I get other books.

      August 15

  • Jeff Z.

    So, I was wondering. Since Kitsune will be a playable race after GenCon, would it be allowed/legal to roll a new lvl 1 Kitsune character for some of the level one scenarios?

    August 13

    • Jason C.

      If the Kitsune is a playable race after GenCon, then my guess is you would have to wait until after GenCon to register a new kitsune character. If it is a playable race starting at GenCon, then you can register the character as of tomorrow.

      August 13

    • Jared

      If it is like when they released the Aasimar and Tieflings, the first day of GenCon/first day of new season is when you can start playing the new race. I would expect that to be the case with the new races for this year as well.

      August 14

  • Jason C.

    On Saturday I'll be running #33 Assault on the Kingdom of the Impossible, #51 The City of Strangers-Part 1: The Shadow Gambit and #52 The City of Strangers-Part 2: The Two Fold Demise. All these scenarios are levels 1-7. On Sunday I'm running The Godsmouth Heresy. That's a module for 1st level characters.

    July 16

    • Jeff Z.

      So, is assault playable multiple times? Also, what levels are these? (Would my lvl 2 be good?)

      August 13

    • Jason C.

      All of the ones I'm running are levels 1-7. Assault on the Kingdom of the Impossible is like most scenarios and you can only replay it if you have a judging star.

    Would it be possible to get a rough timetable of events for those of us that may not be able to make a whole day of gaming? Nothing too fancy, just ballpark times.

    August 10

    • Chris

      Yes First session

      August 12

    • Chris

      The Horn of Aroden (1-5); Second session Assault on the Wound (3-7), Last session on Saturday The Disappeared (1-5)

      August 12

  • Jenny

    Can beginners (just got the beginner box and are reading through it) also join?

    August 11

    • Duane

      Certainly, we appreciate new meat, err, players. Lots of low level stuff so you can fit right in.

      August 12

    • Duane

      Especially if you can make it 8 a.m. Saturday morning. "The Confirmation" is perfect for new players.

      August 12

  • Duane

    So will there be an offering besides the "We Be Goblins 1 & 2?" Since some of us in group have played it, don't think we can again? Thanks for an answer.

    July 16

    • Chris

      Yes the We Be Goblins and other 1-2 modules can be played multiple times.

      July 17

    • Chris

      Pathfinder Module: Master of the Fallen Fortress

      Pathfinder Module: We Be Goblins!
      Pathfinder Module: Crypt of the Everflame
      Pathfinder Module: The Godsmouth Heresy
      Pathfinder Module: Murder's Mark
      Pathfinder Online: Thornkeep (The Accursed Halls)
      Pathfinder Adventure Path #67: The Snows of Summer-the list

      July 17

  • Jeff Z.

    I am officially running "We Be Goblins" as well as "We Be Goblins Too!" I'm looking forward to anyone who wants to enjoy 2 of the wildest, wackiest, funniest campaigns I've ever played.

    July 15

    • Geoffrey

      I believe these scenarios can be replayed for credit multiple times, yes?

      July 16

    • Ryan M.

      We Be Goblins Too! Is 2-4.

      "As always, each player may receive credit for each module once as a player and once as a GM in either order."

      http://paizo.com/down...­

      But the first one is 1-2 only.

      July 17

  • Chris

    I will be running, "The Horn of Aroden" (Tiers 1-5), "Assault on the Wound" (tiers 3-7), and was also thinking of doing "The Disappeared" (Tiers 1-5).

    July 16

    • Duane

      Sweet I can play all these with L5 Sorceress. And for the lower ones I have L1 and 2 and 3 to fit in party.

      July 16

  • Jerry

    I will be running 5-04, "the stolen heir" it's levels 1-5.

    July 14

  • Chris

    If you have not done so go to the top and click on Polls under More. And please take the Not GenCon Con Poll. This will help Jason and I figure out what scenarios we will run.

    June 7, 2014

  • Henddher

    JP and I will join too.

    May 10, 2014

  • Ryan M.

    I'd be willing to try running "The Confirmation".

    Played it twice. I figure it is a fairly easy entry into that side of the table…

    April 27, 2014

    • Duane

      Sweet, looking at making a Tiefling Alchemist.

      April 28, 2014

  • Jeff Z.

    Jason, I'd be willing to judge. I can get you a list of scenarios I've run soon. I've also got 2 friends who might come along.

    April 25, 2014

  • Ryan M.

    Hey I'm in. I'd be happy to judge although I've never done it before in PFS. I can send you a list of the scenarios I've played.

    1 · April 23, 2014

    • Jason C.

      That would be great. It is never too early to start lining up judges.

      April 24, 2014

  • Jeff Z.

    I'm in. Was curious, will these count towards leveling our current characters or is this more a "just for fun" type event?

    April 24, 2014

    • Jason C.

      The plan is to run all PFS scenarios and modules. All of which will count toward leveling your characters.

      April 24, 2014

  • Geoffrey

    Wish I could make this. I hope you all have a great time. This would be a great chance for new players to get some serious experience.

    April 23, 2014

  • Jason Cash changed the date and time to Saturday, August 16, 2014 at 8:00 AM
