January Paizo Order

I have Christmas/birthday gift certificates to spend. I am going to place an order with Paizo sometime in January. I am going to get some Star Wars accessories, some card sleeves, a few PFS scenarios (old and new) and some more area effect templates for sure. I may get some more stuff but I am still shopping.

If you would like to add anything to the order, please let me know. As in years past, I will be able to get my 15% subscription discount as well as an additional 10% holiday discount. This is for anything Paizo (physical or electronic) and anything physical from other companies. Besides your order, I will also need the money for whatever you may want.

PACG Playtest in January

I have received the playtest cards for the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Skull & Shackles. I have sorted the cards and have made the corrections that have been provided so far. We should be all set to play on 1/7/14.

This time around they sent all playtest leads all of the cards in the set. We have been assigned chapters 5 & 6 to play. That is 10 scenarios we agreed to play. We will need to build our decks and will likely only get one or two scenarios completed on the first night. I expect that we will only have 4 weeks to get our playtesting completed.

Sarah and I have been playing a 2-player test with the base set and will likely do chapters 1 & 2 as well.

Next few weeks

It looks like the Skull & Shackles Pathfinder Adventure Card Game play test is still delayed. They are currently targeting the play test to start 12/23/13 and end 2/2/14. Because the December holidays fall on Tuesday this year, that will give us the month of January to complete our 13 scenarios. I think this can be accomplished as we already have experience with the game.

I will keep you posted as I know more.

That leaves the next couple of weeks free. Looking for suggestions as what you want to play.

As always, we can play some PFS. I have a new tier 3-7, three older tier 1-5 and several tier 5-9. I also still have a module which is good for characters leveled 3-5. We also could start The Dragon's Demand. I will be running this in campaign mode (home game rules but PFS credit). That will require everyone to have a 1st level character created.

DD character creation guidelines:

Charters should be 1st level. For ability scores use a 25 point buy. Hit points will be max at first level. Each level after will be average for you hit die plus your constitution bonus. You will have 150 GP to buy your starting gear.

I can also run some Star Wars: Edge of the Empire. I can run the second adventure from the Beginner Game with everyone playing the pregens that they played before or I can run the Free RPG Day adventure with different pregens. I have more material which you can build your own characters for but that may require a session just to get that done.

I am not ready for HEX but I could run All For One but I suspect that we have the same character creation problem.

Looking for some input.

I am shooting to have Christmas cookies for the gang on 12/17/13. I know that some of our semi-regulars have not been by in a while. Even if you cannot play, you might want to stop by to get a treat.

PFS Tomorrow

Tomorrow I will be running a new Season 5 Tier 1-2 PFS scenario, The Confirmation. This adventure can be played unlimited times with a 1st level character and once with a 2nd level character. It is constructed to change each time it is run so your experience may be different each time it is played.

It does have two distict sub-tiers; 1 and 2. If the party has an APL of 1.5 exactly you can pick which sub-tier to play otherwise you play up or down as dictated by rounding the APL to the nearest whole number.

This means you will need a 1st or 2nd level character to play tomorrow. There is a slight benefit for playing a 1st level character with 0 XP. It is by no means a game changer but it is kind of cool.
