(Please make sure and read through the FAQ before listing a game.)
Will There be Boon/Prize Support?
Yes, there will – assuming we breach the 15 table limit to qualify.
How/When will boons be provided?
Boons will be sent out to GMs and players as the games are submitted for reporting to the Online VOs. GMs will each get one GM boon for running during the game day. Both players and GMs will then be able to win additional boons at each table they are involved in. Instructions for how boons can be won will be provided to GMs before the start of the gameday.
Will GMs get the PDF for scenarios they run added to their Paizo account?
Yes – assuming we breach the 15 table limit mentioned above. Games submitted by October 22nd, 2014 @ 4 PM UTC will have the scenarios added to their accounts (limit 3 scenarios). This only applies to regular PFS scenarios, not APs or Modules.
I have the scenarios / modules I signed up to GM. May I get store credit instead?
No, you will only receive product support for the games you sign-up to run for the gameday.
Can a GM run more than one PbP table?
Yes, but we ask that you not have more than 3 concurrent games.
Can I play the same PC in multiple PbP games at the same time?
No – You can only have any given PC active in one game at at time.
Can we both GM and Play?
Do PbP games for the Game Day have to run only on the Paizo forums?
Absolutely not. Whatever PbP forum you choose is perfectly fine.
Can I participate in this gameday by continuing with my current game?
No, this gameday is for games being organized for the Gameday. Only games registered for the gameday, and starting/ending between the dates above, will be eligible.
I would like to GM for a private group as part of the Gameday – is this OK?
Yes. The caveat being that you must still submit your game to the VO form and must report your game through the VOs like the public games.
Will there be any way to know which website the public PbP games are hosted on?
Yes. As GMs submit their games to us we will list them here :
Can I run Bonekeep?
Not at this time. Due to it’s special nature, Campaign Leadership has not approved it for PbP Online Play.
Can I run a Mutli-Table Special for the Game Day?
Right now there are no Mutli-Table specials approved for run by Campaign Leadership – these will be included in future game days though.
Will there be a set of guidelines provided for GMs/Players to follow during the gameday?
There will be some suggested/optional guidelines provided to GMs closer to the gameday. This will be a beta set of simple guidelines you can use if you like.
If my game finishes faster than I planned, can I run another game?
Absolutely. If you have enough time to finish before the deadline, please fell free to start additional games if you like. Make sure you still submit the game to the VO game registry. Also keep in mind that we will not be able to provide free PDFs for games submitted after October 22nd, 2014 @ 4 PM UTC.
