Friday evening


Roleplaying Game

Swords and Wizardry Invades PaizoCon, Year 7

Friday evening, 8:00–11:59 pm • Cascade 4

There is no school like the old school!
Late Night Swords and Wizardry with grognard GM Bill Webb of Frog God Games. Travel back to the dawn of the game where character generation took 2 minutes (which is good, because you die a lot!), there was no such thing as a spot check, dwarves and elves were classes, not just races, and a +1 sword was a wonder!
You can roll up characters at the table. Rules (the very few that there are) will generally follow those in Swords and Wizardry White Box and Bill Webb's book of Dirty Tricks (available online at the Frog God Games website--and the rulebook pdf is free!). All character generation is 3d6 in order, although stats cap at +1/-1 on bonus and penalty, and are thus, mostly irrelevant.
Bill's games are well known for having high fatality rates and extremely difficult puzzles and traps. If you play in both sessions, experience points and treasure carry over to the next night. If you have a character from UCon, GameHole, Dallas or PaizoCon’s events (or bring yours from this year next year), the same applies.
You never know who might show up at Bill's table. There are occasional special guests with names you just may have heard before. Games start promptly at 830 (800 if you need a character), and run until Bill falls over. Kids are welcome (there will be a couple there already), as long as they can handle the time of night and have basic skills.
Bring a 20-sided die, a few 6-siders and a miniature or three. All other materials provided

As the description reads, this event can go deep into the late night/early morning, however I am technically restricted from entering an event that crosses midnight. Enjoy and good luck!


Are there multiple tables running or one giant game of 15? Seeing 15 attendees listed.

If it's the late night one I wandered into one night last year and ended up healing the vampire lord so that he didn't die (should have seen the other players faces, but hey, I was mind controlled at the time), it's a manic fun filled hilarity, one GM taking on 15 players.

It was sooooo much fun, if you got a slot, cling on to them for dear life!

Bill's games are a highlight of my Paizocon every year. Definitely worth dropping by to see if you can get a spot at the table.


There will probably be more then 15 people there. In Dallas, Bill runs about 20 to a table.

You are a sick monster!

I hope I can find one of my previous sheets. The cats always seem to chew them up during the interim between Cons. You should see what they did to the fighter! Can't even find my druid who got the magic chisel...

Awesome. I shall know you by the lizard you will be wearing?


I'll try to get a lizard! It might not be on my hat, but it'll be somewhere on my person.
