How does everyone here track which scenarios they've played and GMed?

For my local group, we use a Google spreadsheet; it has all the scenarios/modules/etc. in the first column, then each person has two columns (played & GMed) where they put a number against a scenario to indicate which PC has got the chronicle for it. As well as being useful as a reminder of what one has already played, it can be used to work out which scenarios would be good for a particular group of players.

I'm expecting to run more VoIP games in future, but I'm worried that one day I'll buy and prep a scenario, only for everyone here to say 'sorry, played that already'.

Posting this message did spark a memory, which led me to this sheet. Does anyone keep this updated? I know I don't, sadly...

Cool sheet. I did not know about that.

Question: is that only for "getting credit"? I was wondering since it now looks as if you can either GM a scenario OR play it, but I'd assume it'd be cool to play a scenario and THEN GM it (obviously not the other way around)? Or can you get "credit" as in XP and stuff to one of your characters if you GM a scenario that you haven't otherwise played?

There is a nifty little checklist on this site, unfortunately it hasn't been updated for Season 4.

I didn't know about this, so I didn't update

But I've got my fastfox's Pathfinder Society Characters Geeklist which is updated.

For almost all scenarios, you can get one chronicle sheet for playing, and another chronicle for GMing. You can get them in either order (although most will aim to play first if possible). Both chronicle sheets must be assigned to different characters.

For information, here's an excerpt of the tracking sheet we use locally:



The numbers indicate which PC was assigned the chronicle sheet for playing (column marked 'P') and GMing (column marked 'G').
The Xs indicate additional runs of a scenario as GM, giving points towards GM stars, but not additional chronicles.

I'd created it around the time PFS sanctioned play really took off here and updated it to a point. Then I set it public so anyone with a Google account (I think, or maybe just anyone) can add themselves and check in the boxes for themselves. The XP & Fame tracking boxes are approximate; they just do a dumb count. I've fallen behind on logging mine but every once in a while I go through and update for completed scenarios & mods.

Ooh, I didn't know about that sheet previously. After reading Matt's initial post, I was planning on making a similar google sheet to share, but someone has already saved me the trouble! Thank you!

This is a great idea.... Gives GM's ideas of what could be run well.

If we agree on what we'll use, I'll use it. Doesn't matter to me.

Very nice! Thank you for this, I just updated all my characters.

If anyone has suggestions or Excel (or really, gDocs) wizardry as a class skill, is there anything they think could easily be improved on that sheet?

The one thing I'd like to do is create another tab where you can select a character from a drop down and have the cells below display a list of scenarios that you can print out. But really, that's the only thing coming to mind.

Just to be clear, are you wanting to display only the Scenarios a character has credit for in the display?

Yeah, I think we'll need to add the Adventure Paths, too. Rise of the Runelords and Shattered Star, for now. If no one has added them by later tonight, I'll download the Chronicle Sheets and add on the appropriate columns.

That's what I'm thinking. It would take e.g. a drop down to choose the player and then some hlookup voodoo, most likely.

That's a module, yes?

I'm actually not really sure what Thornkeep is

It's a series of modules I think, so maybe it should have separate slots for each one?

Yep! My idea was along those lines. Have the top cells merged for the title "Thornkeep", "RotRL", etc.; and then underneath have a separate column for each Chronicle Sheet in the series, differentiated by the levels or title of the CS (if they have different titles).

Hm...just thought of one other item. Modules are equivalent to 3 scenarios. That means, can't just count straight across for the number of P's or GM's to approximate the current level.

Now I just need to figure out an easy way to resolve this and make those count three times.

That's the problem I was having with Everflame.

Are you trying to do too much automatically? If a player is going to update this spreadsheet each time he finishes a scenario or module, isn't it simple enough to just add a column for level, which the player can fill in manually?
