Rapheal,

 

I see that there are some minimum levels for a few of the scenarios. Can a player "play up" for these scenarios?

& that is one reason why I don't like PFS games. Even a one shot game. Really hurts people that don't have Society games in their area, yet they want to play in a game, other then 1st level.

5 of the 8 rounds you can play as 1st level and have no restrictions. Its about what the level was written at. Haldir you should know by now that we will run PFS at reapercon every year so after three rounds you get a level it would be really easy to make a level a year just at ReaperCon.

Oh I understand that you can level throughout the weekend to play in those game but what if you just wanna play in a 5th level game. You have no intention of moving on with that character? I'm not clear on how player actions/participation effects a PFS GM & such, so maybe that is why it's done that way.

 

Again, no PFS in my area thus I have no interest in PFS. I might look at it different if I did.

I play a lot of society locally, so I would have a character available to play, but I hear Heresy of Man is a killer!

 

Doesn't society rules allow you to play higher level stuff with pregens (they have pregens at 1, 4, and 7)? At least that's what a lot of people locally do when they don't have a character at the appropriate tier, then they hold the chronicle and apply it to their character when they reach that level...

 

Yeah it's not ideal since you don't get to build your own character, but it's still fun!

Hi,

I'd like to try to get in a PFS event while I'm in Dallas. Is there a registration process for these events, or do I just sign up when I'm there?

Thanks!

There is no pre-registration for games, they are first-come first served at the show at this time. If this changes, I will let you know.

KatieG , you are correct you can play a pregen. We will get in as many games as people want to play. The actual authors of Heresy Trilogy will be running them at the con.

That is good to know. I was under the impression you had to bring your character to the game.

OK, To help clarify Pathfinder Society Organized Play. This is for Lue, and Randy and anyone else curious. 1. A player can always play up a tier but they get the rewards for the tier they are. 2. A player can't play up if there character can't fit inside the tier of the module, ie a module written for 5-9, you have to be at least 5th level. That being said you can play a pre gen of the closet level to the tier of the table, credit however has to go to a new 1st level character. I hope this helps clarify the situation.

The schedule of events posted by ReaperBryan on Friday shows "Celebrity Pathfinder" on Friday night, starting at 8pm. What is this?

Celebrity Pathfinder is a trio of tables Ron has reserved for his favorite artists to play Pathfinder. If you don't know about it, Ron probably hates you. :devil:

 

I'm not 100% sure what his plans are - he asked me to reserve 3 simultaneous tables for the event.

      About this project
      They say there have been eight worlds before ours. Eight times the people of this Earth, over vast millennia, built their civilizations, reaching heights we cannot even fully imagine now. They spoke to the stars, reshaped the creatures of the world, and mastered form and essence. They built cities and machines that have since crumbled to dust, leaving only their barest remnants.
      This is the Ninth World. The people of the prior worlds are gone—scattered, disappeared, or transcended. But their works remain, in the places and devices that still contain some germ of their original function. Some call these magic, but the wise know that these are our legacy. They are our future. They are the...
      Set a billion years in our future, Numenera is a tabletop roleplaying game about exploration and discovery. The people of the Ninth World suffer through a dark age, an era of isolation and struggle in the shadow of the ancient wonders crafted by advanced civilizations now millennia gone. But discovery awaits for those brave enough to seek out the works of the prior worlds. Those who uncover and master the numenera can unlock the powers and abilities of the ancients, and bring new light to a struggling world.
      The original Numenera RPG was launched via a 2012 Kickstarter campaign that shattered every record (at the time) for tabletop RPGs. The corebook has seen four printings, and Numenera is enjoyed by tens of thousands of gamers in an active global community. We have published over 60 supplements and accessories, and released a terrific starter set for new players. The Ninth World has spawned a critically-acclaimed hit computer game, board games, an excellent short film, a line of novels, and other licensed items, and Numenera has been translated into many languages including French, Spanish, Italian, Korean, German, and Portuguese.
      Numenera is a game in which player characters explore the ruins of aeons past to gather amazing treasures and help build a new future for a world struggling in darkness. Since the launch of Numenera in 2013, we have delivered well on the first part, but we’ve always wanted to do a more thorough job exploring that second part. That desire has led us to Numenera 2 and this Kickstarter campaign.
      Through this Kickstarter we’re going to replace the existing corebook with two new corebooks. The first is called Numenera Discovery and the second Numenera Destiny.
      Numenera Discovery will be a book that covers familiar territory; it is basically a revision of the original Numenera corebook. Next summer, we will allow the original corebook to go out of print, and Numenera Discovery will take its place. In Numenera Discovery, you’ll get some revisions to make things clearer and more fun, and to increase the options available to players. Nanos, Jacks, and Glaives will get an overhaul. Many foci and some of the descriptors might see some reworking. You’ll have more options, clearer rules, and perhaps a bit of expansion to the regions of the Steadfast and the Beyond that are covered in the existing corebook.
       
      But Numenera Discovery is not a new edition. We will make virtually no changes to the way the game plays mechanically—and none of those changes affect the way NPCs, creatures, or items like cyphers or artifacts work. We also won’t be making changes to the setting. So if you already play Numenera, your bestiaries, adventures, card decks, character portfolios, and books like Into the Night, Technology Compendium, and Jade Colossus will not be affected by these changes. We will not issue any “second editions” of the existing supporting titles—and if you choose not to get Numenera Discovery, future Numenera supplements will work fine with your existing Numenera corebook. Your ongoing campaign will flow smoothly through the change in corebooks. You will even be able to mix existing characters with those from Numenera Discovery into your game. In fact, the game can be played with both the existing corebook and Numenera Discovery in use at the same game table!
      (One small exception: Numenera Character Options and Numenera Character Options 2 will remain compatible, but will become substantially less relevant following the improvements to characters in Numenera Discovery. We will retire those titles.)
      As excited as we are about Numenera Discovery, we may be even more excited about Numenera Destiny. This title will enable characters to truly become a part of the setting—to help shape the future of the Ninth World. The people of the Ninth World are locked in a medieval-like state, a world of struggle and danger and often suffering in the shadow of the prior worlds’ wonders. Numenera Destiny allows you to build adventures and campaigns in which players don’t just explore the wonders of the past—they utilize them to help lift the Ninth World out of darkness.
      You can make the world a better place. Help a community defend itself from abhumans or the iron wind. Create centers of learning or trade. Innovate, build, and protect. Manage an entire community and help it prosper and grow—or simply create a cool base or vehicle for your adventuring group. Numenera Destiny will allow you to take what you discover and make your mark on history as someone who elevated the Ninth World into the future.
      Adventuring—exploring the weird and wondrous remnants of the prior worlds—remains, of course, at the core of Numenera play. Numenera Destiny will give you new things to do with your discoveries, along with entirely new and epic ways to structure your campaigns. You’ll discover materials, power sources, and treasures that you can utilize in an entirely new, robust crafting and building system. And perhaps best of all, Numenera Destiny will offer three new character types and a number of new descriptors and foci geared toward this innovative style of play.

      Since many games have stalled waiting on one player, do the "regulars" have any interest in Rise of the Runelords?
       
      I have read through 80% of it.
      I'd be OK if you've played some of part I, but not read it.
       
      If there is interest for 4 players, I'll put up character creation rules.
