Pathfinder Adventure Card Game fans! If you're going to be in the Columbus area over the next four days, please come visit us at the Origins Game Fair—there will be lots of PACG to play!
We have lots of tables of Season of Factions' Favor running in the Hyatt's Franklin Ballroom. You can play them at these times:
|Thursday||8:00 AM||10:00 AM||1:00 PM||3:00 PM||5:00 PM||7:00 PM|
|Friday||8:00 AM||10:00 AM||1:00 PM||3:00 PM||5:00 PM||7:00 PM|
|Saturday||8:00 AM||10:00 AM||1:00 PM||3:00 PM||5:00 PM||7:00 PM|
You can find me hanging out with PACG developers Keith Richmond and Paul Peterson at the Lone Shark Games booth, #235. Paul and I will also join James Ernest for our annual Origins by Night podcast every night of the show from the Big Bar on 2, just a few feet from the Pathfinder games. Come say hi!
We'll also be bringing a copy of the playtest set for next year's PACG Core Set. I don't know how many games we'll be able to get in while we're there—there's a lot going on at the show—but whenever we have time, we'll bring it over to the PACG area and playtest with you.
We'll have promo cards to sign and a first look at our Free RPG Day promo character...
Nok-Nok… He's Here
A while back we revealed Nok-Nok, our fifth goblin promo character for Free RPG Day. That's an annual event where gamers around the world play hobby games all day long. More than a dozen companies provide free products for participating retailers to give out, and Paizo is no exception. In addition to the modules We Be 5uper Goblins! for the Pathfinder RPG and Skitter Shot for Starfinder, we've got Nok-Nok for PACG.
Nok-Nok is from the upcoming Pathfinder: Kingmaker CRPG. My birthday-twin Chris Avellone wrote a bunch of stuff for that game, and so we wanted to honor him by including Nok-Nok in our world. Here's Nok-Nok in all his glory.
When someone asks you if you're a god, you say yes.
We especially like the central mechanic on Nok-Nok: that he cares how many of what are in his location deck. Sure, every character does. But Nok-Nok is especially good at gaining value from cards that aren't even flipped over from the location deck yet. It's kind of awesome to watch.
Also, Nok-Nok may not be every goblin's goblin. The other goblins use his head as a drum, which does not endear them to Nok-Nok. If you want a goblin to solo through the first adventures in Rise of the Runelords or Season of the Runelords, Nok-Nok's your man. Er, goblin. If you can't get your hands on Nok-Nok on Free RPG Day, don't fear! We'll be sending him out for free along with PACG subscription shipments of Ultimate Wilderness in July; non-subscribers will be able to purchase him from paizo.com starting August 2.
We're hoping to see you at Origins and on Free RPG Day! Thanks for playing!
