DigiPen student group forming!

Thanks to the efforts of Arthur Wall, a student PFS group is forming on the campus of DigiPen Institute of Technology. Because of student group rules, only registered students can attend, but if you or someone you know is a DigiPen student and wants to join, you can contact Arthur by Private Message on the forums to user “sokamish”.

New PFS location in Longview

I am pleased to announce Southwest Washington now has PFS available at Dangerous Gentlemen games in Longview! A big thanks to Wendy Bryan for stepping up to coordinate PFS in Cowlitz County.

Dangerous Gentlemen is located at 1327 Broadway, Longview, WA 98632. PFS will be hosted on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays at 1pm.

Let’s Play Cafe moving to Friday nights

The weekly game in Monroe is moving from Saturday to Friday evening. If you’re looking for a Friday night game, watch the Monroe forum!

Changes to the forums

To help make the forums more logical for new and old members alike, I’m making a few small changes.

First, the “Local Area Discussions” topic is now titled “Local Game Planning and Signups“. This is where coordinators post planning and signup threads for their locations.

Second, I have added a Home Games and Private Events topic. This is a place to post conversations about Seeker group planning and small private games (like a birthday party or holiday gathering at your home). Threads here don’t even have to be about PFS.

Happy gaming!

Games & Gizmos Friday night games cancelled as of November 1

The owner of G&G has informed us that as of November 1, we will no longer be able to reserve tables on Friday night for PFS. Friday night Magic is a significant income for them, and those two tables are needed for that. Friday, October 30, will be the last Friday night game there.

Note this does not affect the Wednesday night games.

If anyone knows of a location we could talk to for a Friday night game to replace G&G, please contact one of your venture officers.

PFS at Tacoma Mall!

I am pleased to announce that we have another recurring PFS game in Tacoma! Adam Watson (kithral) is hosting a biweekly game at Uncle’s Games in the Tacoma Mall (4502 South Steele Street, 157A, Tacoma, WA 98409; (253) 473-8499). Due to the mall’s closing time, this is an early session: 4:30 to 9:00pm.

The next session is this week, September 10th. Signups are in the Tacoma forums.

Thanks for the new game, Adam!

Ultimate Combat errata / reprint

Ultimate Combat has gone into third printing, and as always that comes with errata.  Here are some useful links:

New PFS weekly game in Kent!

David Light has volunteered to start coordinating a weekly game at Blind Dragon Hobbies in Kent.  With this addition, there is now a PFS game every day of the week somewhere in Western Washington.  Thanks, David!

Sign up threads will be in the South Side forum. Check it out!

Updates to ARG and ACG

For those who haven’t heard, both the Advanced Class Guide and Advanced Race Guide have had recent errata.

The Advanced Race Guide is now in its second printing. If you own the PDF, you should have received an email from Paizo letting you know you can download the update. You can also see what changed by downloading the free errata document from the product page.

The Advanced Class Guide second printing PDF doesn’t seem to be available yet, but the errata document is posted on its product page.

Some of the changes, particularly in ACG, are fairly large. Slashing Grace got a major change, and because of it John Compton is allowing more generous than usual retraining/rebuilding.

Read carefully, and if you have any questions, just ask!

Season 7 Guide now available!

The Season 7 guide, newly renamed the “Pathfinder Society Roleplaying Guild Guide”, is now available. Check out the blog for a quick rundown of the changes, and download your copy today! Remember, all players are expected to have read the guide and follow the rules inside.
