With only a couple of weeks left in this year, the Pathfinder Society team finds itself working feverishly to wrap up loose ends before taking a few days to relax and visit friends and family. I’m heading out this week, with Linda and John a few days behind me. But never fear! Come January, we all will be diving back into work, finalizing plans on Season 9 and getting the rest of Season 8 ready for our players!
One of the loose ends we tied up neatly was our first quarter 2017 travel. This year, we shared some of the traveling so that everyone on the team has the opportunity to meet and greet our players.
First up, John travels to Columbia, South Carolina to attend S.C.A.R.A.B the weekend of January 13th-16th. This is one of the 5 largest conventions on the Pathfinder Society calendar. Organized by RVC Del Collins and his team, this convention offers a full slate of Pathfinder Society goodies. On offer, a variety of Roleplaying Guild scenarios and quests, as well as the pregenerated character scenarios #7-98 Serpents’ Ire and #7-99 Through Maelstrom Rift. The Season 8 interactive special, The Cosmic Captive runs during the Saturday 8 PM slot. New this year, offerings of the Adventure Card Game and Adventure Card Guild play. Check out their website at here for more information.
Attendees of TotalCon in Marlborough, Massachusetts, get a double header of Paizo Staff. Designer Mark Seifter accompanies PFS developer Linda Zayas-Palmer to the convention occurring from February 23rd to the 26th. Besides a full slate of Pathfinder Society activities, two offerings of retired scenario #21 The Eternal Obelisk. Venture-Captain Ray Diaz, who is organizing the convention, has information on how seats at Linda & Mark’s tables will be allocation. Visit theTotalCon website for full details on this convention.
My first trip is to Nevada and the Las Vegas Open the weekend of February 3rd to 5th. While predominately a war-game and miniatures convention, organizers branched out to roleplaying in their offerings this year. We have a full slate of activities organized by Venture-Captain Ethan Cline. I’ll be running the retired scenario #09 Eye of the Crocodile King on Sunday afternoon, as well as participating in other Pathfinder Society games. For more information on the convention, check out their website.
We hijacked designer Stephen Radney-McFarland and named him an honorary Pathfinder Society team member as well. Stephen travels to Everett, Washington, from January 13th to 15th for OrcaCon. Besides his normal shenanigans, he is running a table of #19 Skeleton Moon, another retired PFS scenario. Besides Stephen, you can catch up with several other Paizo staffers participating in a variety of panels. Come out to the convention, say hi, and join in some fun! More information for OrcaCon may be found on their website.
Speaking of conventions. There still is time to submit an application to be a 2017 convention lead or sub-lead for some of our biggest shows, including PaizoCon, Gen Con, and PAX West. Check out last week’s Pathfinder Society blog for the specifics!
Next week, John gives us a peek into the December scenarios #8-10 and #8-11. I’ll be back once more before the end of the year, with tales of sun, dice, and loads of Pathfinder Society. So happy holidays to all and see you on the 26th!
Until next time—Explore, Report, Cooperate!
