I have a question. When I used to play Society, I wouldn't choose which character I was using until the players all arrived and chose theirs. That way I could ask them what they wanted and choose what would best fill out the party.

You seem to require the character's XML before allowing the player in the game. Is waiting not an option? Or do you just want XMLs for all the possible characters I would play?
(Another side question that I haven't seen any sign of on these forums. What about characters that have chronicles from live games? Does it have to be a digital FG Society character?)

Well, since it's first come first served, here is my character XML. Not sure if its everything you want since I dare not take the time to fill every detail in and lose a spot in the game. But it should be everything you need to make it Society-legal

That requirement is primarily to make sure the players signing up have a valid Fantasy Grounds XML and chronicle sheets, and for the GMs to check the character sheet ahead of time. If you have multiple possible characters, how about listing them and uploading relevant XMLs? That way I'll get to look at the characters ahead of time and you'll reserve a slot with a PC to be confirmed later based on the party; I don't mind you change your PC up to the day before the game.

I understand, and that's pretty much what I expected.

My problem is that I didn't have any characters made in FG yet, so I was scrambling to get them made. Still not sure what all info is required, but they will be fully fleshed out prior to the game. Will add a healer (not really needed), tank and CC caster later as I check with the newest guidebook to make sure elements of their build haven't become illegal for Society play.

Generally speaking... 'at gametime' PC choices are more difficult when playing in this venue. Most GMs require PCs to be submitted at least 24 hours before gametime so they can check them over and get them loaded onto the server. Nobody likes to be scrambling around at the last minute with player files and delaying the start time on the game. If you want to select one of your PCs that works well with the rest of the group, you are usually welcome to wait until the day before to see who has signed up. Unlike Con games.. PCs don't show up at gametime to play and games are generally set at the 24 hour point.. so essentially it's the same as a Con game.. only earlier so the GM has time to take care of the technical stuff ahead of time. Check the Calendar.. usually players post their class, race, and level there so you can see who else is going to be on your team... or look through the thread as it develops. Some folks want to play this game with that character.. others are more flexible.

No, I didn't have any opportunity to play this one before. I've seen it announced here at FG only once, and I didn't have time to play then ^^

I have updated Hakeem using some of the features of FG. I'll probably continue to do so as I learn the software. I'll post the final xml 2 days before the game. That should give me a week or so to tinker with the program.

Hey Guys,
Sorry for the late notice but I just found out I am going to get stuck at work late tonight. I probably wont make the game in time. Hopefully you can find someone to fill in. Have fun, Mac

Hey Mac. The game is not tonight, it's Saturday next week. I was scheduled to run Rivalry's End tonight, but too many players end up getting a conflict, so there won't be any PFS game tonight.

I am assuming it might be to late to jump in but I'm going to try ). I'm new to the online PFS. This will be my first attempt at getting into a game. I'm green with the mechanics of posting the character so I hope I give the correct format. If not let me know what I need to change. (Question) Is this game running on Saturday August 3rd at 9pm EDT? or Sunday August 4th? On calendar is says game time is the 4th..and heading says the 3rd.

I would shot the GM a PM just to make sure, but I think there is a spot or 2 but only he would know for sure.
Also I think the new official TeamSpeak 3 server is up (for voice comms), I was just on it

voice.fg-con.com Password: Dungeoneers

but not sure if he is going to use this one or the other one mentioned earlier before this server was up.

Both the address I have on the game announcement, and the above, point to the same Teamspeak server. My address was before the new domain name was redirected. I'll switch future games to your address, since it'll be the publicly announced format. Thanks for the quick reply.

For all: I have reported the session on Paizo's site.

For Marcus & Hakeem: I would need your starting gold & confirmation that this is your first chronicle sheet (and if not, I need a scan of the prior chronicle sheet).

For the others: The signed chronicle sheets have been posted on my dropbox folder (https://www.dropbox.com/sh/57hak3kfumgd0tz/Tfi86rbNQ7/PFS4-01). Please download them to your PC and verify their accuracy.

I enjoyed the game on Saturday. Apologies it ran as long as it did; the initial roleplay for the faction missions set us behind schedule and the couple technical glitches we encountered didn't help. Hope to be playing with y'all soon! ;)

Nickademus
August 6th, 2013, 04:35
First scenario.
Starting gold: 29 gp, 17 sp, 4 cp (remember I spent 2 gp on donations/bribes)

Wait! I forgot! I applied two GM chronicles to Hakeem over a year ago.
Ignore that starting gold. Here is my chronicle.

Depends on the games that will be run ;) But anyway, we do play in Rise of the Runelords together ^^

I, peronally, didn't mind the game lasting that long (and I think I was the one who got most of the night taken away by gaming. Well, for me, it was already past midnight at the beginning). It's better to actually roleplay when roleplaying than to just rush through the encounters with a bunch of die rolls. And as I mentioned before, I really liked the encounter with the goblin girl. And thanks to the others you didn't just torture and kill her :D
