Check out this link: Meet Mark Seifter
For those of you that weren't aware, Sean K. Reynolds stepped down as game designer for Paizo. Mark applied for the job and was accepted as the newest designer for Pathfinder RPG, and has moved to the Seattle area to start his new job. His girlfriend and co-VL Linda Zayas-Palmer has also moved with him, and I wish them luck in this new chapter of their lives!
On a personal note, I just wanted to thank Mark and Linda for working so hard to get Boston PFS to where it is today. When I first started playing, there were only four or five people showing up at Pandemonium, and not always on a regular basis. In my very first session, I had the pleasure of having Linda turn half of our party into monkeys and have the rest of us fear anything remotely foggy. Mark was very encouraging of my horribly ineffective dwarven cleric who could do nothing but ask "Do I heal now?" as Mark's character got tossed around by a crocodile and a sorcerer peeled back his eyelids and stretched out his arms a lot. With their work, we've gone from wondering if we'd get three or four people to play each week, to trying to figure out how to split three or four tables a week. Your presence will be greatly missed. I know a lot of players in the area are voracious consumers of Pathfinder rules and/or lore thanks to watching you two and what you can do with it. You will most definitely be missed. Feel free to stop by and join a game!
Mark and Linda moved a little over two weeks ago. Those of you at Pandemonium may have wondered why they haven't been around. Well... surprise! Mark and Linda told a few people about the possibility of this happening when Mark was applying for the job. Some of us have known that he got the job, but we've been trying to keep a lid on it for privacy reasons, and not to spoil Paizo's big reveal in the official blog post. For those of you that already knew, thanks for keeping a lid on it!
With that said, it's only logical that with Mark and Linda on the other side of the country that they will no longer be VLs of the region. In the two weeks since they've departed I've been toiling and scheming behind that scenes to get another Venture-Officer for the Metro Boston region. Well, guess what? I've found one! You probably know him if you've played around the Metro Boston area. He's the one, the only... Ray Diaz! He's been a great help in organizing games already at the Garage, as well as GMing quite a bit at Pandemonium and Comicazi. Welcome to the team, Ray!
With that said, there is still room for more venture officers. We could use more VO presence in New Hampshire, as well as Venture Lieutenants for the upcoming Pathfinder Adventure Card Game Organized play, so if you are interested in helping out in any of those regards, please let me know!
