Welcome to Pathfinder Event
« on: March 20, 2017, 02:41:28 PM »
After talking with Java, they said that the first time they host us they'd be willing to do so for free. We should take advantage of this opportunity to try and get as many new players at this venue as possible. I propose a "Welcome to Pathfinder" event. We could run a few tables of the Confirmation, hand out society numbers, and really break into the area and break in new players. Java was willing to make an event out of it and post it on their Facebook.

To give a full update of the situation, I got a yearly membership, so we will be able to have one table a month for free. If people want to game more often then we will have to pay $3 per person, which I know is dicey for some and doable for others. This makes it even more important to try and take advantage of their offer because even with the yearly membership I only get one table. For this event they are willing to do more than one.

I say we try running the event Sunday, April 9th. What we need are GMs willing to run the Confirmation for newbies and possibly another table of a 1-5 scenario for veteran society members wanting to show up. The goal is to both impress Java and bring in new players. If the date doesn't work for people, we have our pick of Sundays, Mondays, or Wednesdays.


UPDATE: The date is April 9th, 1pm-5pm. If you are GMing, it would be appreciated if you showed up at 12pm to help create characters for interested new players. There will be a mini raffle for new players and a mystery item raffle for veteran players. We have two reserved tables and a possible third table we can pay for.

Table 1
The Confirmation  #5-08  Tier: 1-2
GM: Anna

Table 2
(Either The Confirmation or a Tier: 1-5)
GM: David

Table 3 (if needed)
The Confirmation  #5-08  Tier: 1-2
GM: Patrick

Sunday April 2nd will not work for me and my kids. We will be at the Crucible in Orlando that weekend.

My kids and I are willing to come to the event if it were on another Sunday?

If another Sunday works for people we could try Sunday, April 9th? Would like to know what's best for the most people, though.

I will need to look at my schedule and see if the times are correct for me.  But if the star align just right I may be able to GM a table for you.  Just work out the details of the exact date, and I will be more then happy to work it in to my schedule.  Thanks and please have a great day.

For now I will put down April 9th as the day we will do this. I'm giving people until Tuesday (March 28th) to yay or nay the date before I email Java and solidify it. I'll also keep track of who has volunteered to GM. Would anyone prefer to run the 1-5 table as opposed to the Confirmation?

Welcome to the quagmire that is wrangling schedules, by the way.

I'm more than happy to run pretty much any non-evergreen I haven't already run. So no Overflow Archives, Scars of the Third Crusade, Trial By Machine,  Out of Anarchy, or Cyphermage Dilemma.

Contacted Java, so waiting to hear back. Since this is going to be a bit of an event, I was thinking of also doing a very small (very, very small) raffle geared towards supplying new players with helpful things. I was tossing around just picking up a pack of dice to raffle (especially if we get a lot of people that don't have any), possibly throwing in my hard copy Core Rulebook (I never, ever use it), and a player folio if I get the chance to pick one up.

@David
I'll let you run the veteran's table, then. Although depending on if James can GM, I may have you run another Confirmation table after all.

I will check with the wife, and see if we have anything going on that weekend.  If everything is good then I will be there to GM.  I should know something for you by this weekend if not tomorrow.

UPDATE: We have two reserved tables. I'm going to run the Confirmation on one. I'd like whoever runs the second to be on standby for running the Confirmation as well in case we get a lot of new people. If we have more veterans than newbies at table two, we'll run a 1-5 scenario. We will TRY to include as many people as we can, so I'd LIKE a third GM to be on standby in case we need a third table, but we'll work with what we have. The third table is not reserved, but they say they will give us a third if we need it and it's open (considering we're starting early on Sunday, I imagine the openness of the table won't be an issue).

I know there are a lot of variables going on, and I GREATLY appreciate anyone willing to GM and/or come out on the 9th to game. The last thing I will ask is that someone besides me arrive an hour early (12pm) to help anyone who shows up make new characters should they so want to. I'm going to bring character sheets, inventory tracking sheets, and faction cards for new players.

@Argus
Seeing as we only have two reserved tables, it's up to you if you'd like to be on standby to GM.

I am sorry but I will not be able to make this game.  Sundays are my only true day off, and the wife has put her foot down on this, and so did my kids. :((
