This free, online-only celebration of the Roll20 Community will take place on Friday, June 3rd, 2016 for just 24 hours – but you can start preparing, listing, and joining games now! On May 27th, all games labeled forRoll20CON will have access to Plus-level subscription features (including Dynamic Lighting) for free until June 3rd, 2016 at 11:59pm Pacific.

During the convention, some of your favorite streamers and publishers will also be live on Twitch.tv helping Roll20 raise money for Cybersmile, the international non-profit supporting victims of cyberbullying. [Donation details will be available during the Twitch.tv Stream and on Roll20Con.net during the convention.]

We would love to see a strong turnout from the PFS Online Community.

For those interested in running PFS during Roll20Con 2016, please read this post from Roll20Con first:

Then go to the convention session registration link here and register your game:

https://roll20con.net/con/register

NOTE: Make sure to list your game as “Pathfinder” in the “Playing” section of each session, and tag “PathfinderSociety” in the tags.

(Please use the Pathfinder Society Scenario/AP/Module thumbnail image from Paizo.com as your sessions cover image, or the Pathfinder Society logo [Found here in the community use package]. That will help visually distinguish PFS games from the other systems.)

You can see a full list of games for Roll20Con 2016 here, and player sign-ups need to be handled through Roll20 for the convention.

GMs, once you create your session(s) on Roll20, please submit your game for convention support here:

Session Support Submission Form

(Even if you already have the scenario you are running, please submit your game so we can make sure everyone gets Official PFS convention details and will be eligible for convention boons and prizes.)

Submission Deadline for GM Scenario support is May 18th, 2016 at 12 PM PDT US [UTC-7]. (You can still submit games after that for convention boons and prize support, but you will not get scenario support.)

NOTE: Make sure and link your Roll20 session in the PFS support submission form so PFS sessions can be found easily. [Pseudo-Session Example here.]

** Also, if you plan on streaming your game on Twitch or Google Hangouts on Air, please let us know. We would like to feature and host as many streamers as possible during the convention. **

If you have any questions or concerns, or need help getting a game listed (or anything else), please contact ushere.

Look forward to seeing you all there!

Event: VTT Game Day 4 – August 30th, 2014

What: PFS Online: VTT Game Day 4

When: August 30th, 2014

Good Day, Everyone:

It’s that time again – Time for the next Online VTT Game Day.

This will be right after GenCon 2014, so it will be a good time to showcase some of the late PFS Season 5 scenarios as well as the first few Season 6 Scenarios that will be out by then.

VTT Game Days are a great opportunity for Online Players to get some of the much coveted boons and prizes, and for GMs to attract new players and showcase their groups.

If you would like to see what games have already been submitted, you can find them here:

List of Games Submitted

To submit a game, please use the template(s) below to post your game(s):

Paizo Forums Format

Generic RTF Format

Note: The template lists Roll20, but you can use any VTT you wish. You also do not have to use Warhorn. Just edit the template to match the VTT and sign-up tool of your choice. (Please leave the basic template layout in place though.) Please also list all game times in US EDT [GMT-4] for consistency, in addition to your local time.

And then follow this link to submit the games to the GM game submission form so it can be included in the Gameday:

GM Game Submission Form

GMs who submit sessions by August 21st, 2014 at 12:00 PM EDT [UTC-4] will get the sceanrios they run added to thier Paizo.com accounts. (GMs can still submit games after that, but the sceanrios will not be added to their accounts.)

If we can get to the 50 session count we can include Bonekeep 3 in the Gameday, so let’s get those games listed soon. 🙂

All GMs running games will get one GM Boon (as yet, not determined what that will be until after GenCon 2014).

Player prizes will include PFS boons, and digital Pathfinder content from Paizo.com.

(GMs will also be qualified to win regular PFS boons and prizes along with the players, in addition to the GM boon they receive.)

The PFS Online Venture Officers will also have some special prizes to raffle off themselves as well.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

Hope to see you there!

Event: VTT Game Day 3 – Day of Bones

VTT Game Day 3 – Day of Bones
Pharasma - The Infinite Staircase

On the edge of life and death, between winter and spring, there is a holiday of hallowed halls held here. To some it is known as the Day of Bones, the time when those looked upon by Pharasma celebrate their profession and the transitory nature of life.

Join us Saturday, March 1st, 2014 for Online VTT Gameday 3 – Day of Bones, and see if you can keep one foot out of the grave and delay your travels upon the Infinite Staircase.

Different GMs will use different Virtual Table Tops and Voice Clients so please make sure you select a game in which you have access to the appropriate tools.  Different communities also use different methods for player sign-ups.  Some groups will use a tool called Warhorn, while other will simply have players respond to a forum post and will take players in order of response.  So please pay attention to each groups mode of operation so there is not miscommunication or misunderstanding.
  4. Follow any instructions your GM gives you in regard to providing character information, et cetera.

  5. GMs will receive free scenario product support for any PFS Scenario they run, but games must be submitted by Thursday, February 20th, 2014 @ 8 PM EST US [-5 GMT] to receive support.  (Games can still be submitted after this deadline, but they will not get scenario support from Paizo.)
