In other Paizo news, the Guide to Pathfinder Society Organized play has been updated to version 4.1. There are a few major changes and a few minor ones. Most notably, playing a pre-gen character of any level gets you the chronicle sheet for that scenario that can be applied to a newly created 1st level character. At first read it would appear that you could “power-level” a character by applying an upper-level chronicle sheet to a lower level character, but I’m sure they’ll work out the kinks.
Another major change is the addition of an entire chapter devoted to sanctioned modules. Apparently you can play a regular non-society Pathfinder module and get society credit. Chronicle sheets have been added for the 15 modules that are currently sanctioned. Furthermore, a retired 12-level character can level up beyond 12th by playing through the sanctioned modules.
The local lodge here in Asheville is really picking up steam! We’re still trying out several venues to find a more permanent home in light of Blitzkrieg closing, but despite that there are new faces each event, and proving to be the best organized play experience many of us have ever experienced. If you haven’t found a lodge near you, why not start one on the message boards and get something started? Our lodge is only a few months old, and players are coming out from all over. Meet your fellow gamers and help grow the hobby!
