Where did you hear about Pathfinder Society Organized Play?

Through former 3.5 table-mates introduced me to the Beta. They also dragged me out as a DM a few times with generous GM bribes like food, drink, and not studying all weekend.

When did you get involved with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game?

During the Pathfinder Society 3.5 Beta and the early Season 1 modules, then again at the end of Season 1. I was also briefly GM-bribed (they grilled *steaks*!) out of retirement to run Eyes of the Ten, but invariably these bursts of play were interspaced by long stretches of inactivity both in PFS and gaming in general.

When did you get involved with Roleplaying?

During the Living Greyhawk RPGA campaign, I was brought out with two middle school classmates by one of our fathers, who was involved in the RPGA during Living City and Living Greyhawk. He drafted our first characters, brought us to AxeCon, and I've been gaming whenever, wherever I could ever since.

Tell us about your role-playing escapades.

In character, or out of character? Out of character, I played seven years of Living Greyhawk with a rogue, a wizard, a paladin, and a cleric. I had a blast in the Minnesota/Wisconsin/Iowa area and traveling to the corners of the country, as far west as Colorado, south to Texas, and east to Florida. My favorite gaming memory was the finale interactive of Highfolk, the LG region in Wisconsin. During the final convention, the primary NPCs were PCs who had adventured for five years then had hit the retirement cap and been re-introduced as part of the ongoing story of the region. It was the high point of an experience where I felt that as a player I was involved in the campaign beyond just watching the stories laid out for me by an author; I was elbow-deep in the campaign where every trip to the negatives became scarier and more significant because my character wasn't just a stat block, he (or she) was a living, breathing component of the setting with a life beyond his (or her!) player.


I'm a recent Hamline grad and D&D 3.5 veteran who is looking to involve myself in a new Organized Play campaign. When Living Greyhawk ended, I focused on school instead of gaming; now I have graduated, and I'd like to game again.

I have an inherent bias. No comment. ;)
