Pathfinder Playtesting Events
« on: August 09, 2018, 11:08:19 am »
Java Game Haus will be hosting the Pathfinder Playtest every Saturday until November. We will be playing through Doomsday Dawn. Each event will have a maximum of six seats available for players, so sign up to reserve in advanced. This is not a PFS event, so minimum table size will be two players. Obviously four is ideal.

Game Time: 12pm
Character Creation Help: 11am
Estimated Run Time: 6-8hrs (includes breaks)

We will not be using the forums for RSVPing, though you are free to use this thread to discuss and plan.

For actual reservations, please visit the Warhorn event here.

To learn more about earning Playtest Points for Pathfinder Society, see the blog here.

To access the surveys for the playtest, see here.

What to Bring
  • If you'd like credit to be recorded with PFS, bring your Paizo ID#. Playtest characters start at -15XX, so your first character will be -1501.
  • If you don't want to play a pregen character, you are encouraged to make a character beforehand. We can't guarantee time to complete character creation if multiple people show up for help, but we will try.
  • Supplies like dice, pencils, paper, and minis will be available for general use, but bringing your own is recommended.
  • Table fees are $3 per player. All RPG discounts still apply (see below).

What to Expect
  • Please arrive on time!! Since this is a module-length adventure, it's important that we start at noon. Plan to arrive at least 10 minutes early.
  • The game's rules are not final. This is, indeed, a playtest for the final version of the game. Approach the sessions with an open mind and a critical eye. Then you can...
  • Fill out the surveys when you get home. If you don't like something, let Paizo know. If you like something, also let them know. There are surveys for players, GMs, and general surveys about the book (Ancestry, Backgrounds, Classes, ect).
  • Some Saturdays may be skipped due to large events happening at the store. For exact dates, see the calendar below.
  • As always, follow the Haus Rules for this venue. No outside food or drink, and PG-rated language please.

The RPG Discount
  • Table fees are $3 per player. GMs do not pay the table fee.
  • Players receive 15% off of all RPG supplies for the day. GMs receive 20% off.
  • GMs receive $1 in store credit per player at their table. For multi-table events, the total player credit across all tables are divided equally to the GMs.

If you are planning on making a character before the event, keep in mind that Parts 1, 4, and 7 ask you to use the custom backgrounds in the Doomsday Dawn adventure. The characters you play in Part 1 are the only characters that are repeatedly used as well.

There has also been a major errata to the Playtest Rules. You can find the details and a link to the errata download here.

The sign-ups for Part 2 are up on Warhorn. Partick will be running the September 1st event, and I'll be running September 8th.

GMs are needed! As many of you know by now, I need people willing to GM the event after Part 2. This need not be one GM. Anyone who wants a stab at it is more than welcome. If you would like to run ANY Doomsday Dawn events, please let me know. All GMs receive store credit, 20% off of RPG products, and no table fees the day they run. The events are set up and ready.

We probably won't have a Part 3 playtest this week since we don't have a GM. If someone would like to GM this Saturday's event, however, I'll make sure everything is set up.

I'll be taking down the Playtest event so there's no more confusion. I believe a ED and Cool Stuff planned on doing some of the Society scenarios, though. If you want to continue playtesting, keep an eye on those locations' boards.
