Gen Con 50 Events

Last week, I previewed some of the offerings in store for PaizoCon 2017 attendees. The lottery ran and we are in the open event selection period until next Monday. If you have May 26-29 free and want to travel to beautiful Seattle, you can still pick up a badge in-person at the PaizoCon Convention store.

Starfinder Society, Paizo's Newest Organized Play Program

Immediately after the announcement of the Starfinder Roleplaying Game last PaizoCon, our community started speculating about an organized play program to support the new game. We spent the ensuing months looking at workflow and charting out a course that would enable us to have both Starfinder and Pathfinder organized play programs. It delights me to end speculation and announce the launch of Starfinder Society at Gen Con 50!

Making my way back from the Las Vegas Open to spend some time in the office before heading out to DundraCon in a few weeks. The Open is a small con with large growth potential. Currently focused on war gaming, they are looking to expand into tabletop RPGs. I look forward to seeing what they can do for 2018.

A Call to Vol—How to Volunteer for Organized Play at Gen Con 50!

Hard to believe the year passed so fast, but it's time again to invite people to help out with Pathfinder Society activities at Gen Con. As in prior years, Paizo is once again a co-sponsor with our booth on the Exhibit Floor, seminars galore, and activities in the Sagamore Ballroom. But we have a few changes in store as well. So grab some coffee, get comfortable, and see what Organized Play has up its sleeve for the "Best Four Days in Gaming!"

Gen Con and Thanks for All the Fish

Gen Con 2016 is in the books (and Delta's computer failure gave me and many other Paizonians a lovely bonus day or two in the fabulous airport waiting areas of Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Indianapolis, Minneapolis-St. Paul, and/or Salt Lake City) and what a show it was! Demos of the upcoming Mummy's Mask Base Set were a huge hit in the exhibit hall, with 10 tables of action running basically at capacity for four straight days. Many thanks to Dominick Trascritti and his skilled demo team for giving fans old and new an excellent introduction to Mummy's Mask.

Hi everyone! Writing to you from the Sagamore Ballroom in the Indianapolis Convention Center. Flew in the night before last from the United Kingdom to start setting up for Gen Con, which kicks off this Thursday. Yesterday morning, the Sag was empty, with three lonely pallets of stuff shipped from Paizo home offices. At its busiest, there were 30ish people bustling around, hanging banners, moving tables, and getting the basics set up.

The Pathfinder Adventure Card Game Returns to Gen Con!

There's more Pathfinder ACG to be found in the seminar rooms. Mike and Chad will join Penny Arcade's Mike "Gabe" Krahulik to talk about the evolution of their arc of games, including some discussion of PACG, at the panel Big Co-Op Game: From Betrayal to Thornwatch on Thursday at 1 pm. Right after that, at the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game panel on Thursday at 2 pm in room 212 of the convention center, our team members will talk about Mummy's Mask, the Goblin decks, and other such awesomeness. Then on Friday at 1 pm, at the Pathfinder & Obsidian Entertainment panel, we'll chat up the digital game and all the cool things to come from that. If you like hearing us talk about things you like, you'll hear us a lot at Gen Con.

The Wrath of CONNNNNNNNNN!

It's that magical time of year again when I break my time into 30 minute chunks as I leap from state to state and country to country for the annual ritual of level-draining known as "Con Season." I only just returned to the States from (the absolutely wonderful, it must be said) PaizoCon UK, and here I sit in my office with only a few more working hours before it's time to head out to the big one—GEN CON!

OPC Log—11 Erastus 4716

Good afternoon, Pathfinders! I just got back from northern Idaho, where I went to help clean out my childhood home. Sorting through the stuff brought the memories flooding back—wrapping paper from my childhood, the hand brace my grandfather wore, books I put in storage when I moved to England. The town doesn't look the same with the open fields of my youth replaced by housing developments. It was a relaxing visit, for being lots of physical labor, but now I'm back in Redmond and turning my focus to more Gen Con prep, getting things ready so I may travel to PaizoCon UK, and keeping things moving on getting support out to other conventions.

Hello Pathfinders! I hope this blog finds you hale and hearty, having enjoyed a weekend of sun, and fun. Hopefully, the fun involved some roleplaying, particularly the next installment of the Seeker Arc, #7-26 All for Immortality, Part 2: All the God's Beyond. We are currently busy in the office wrapping up July's adventures, prepping for Gen Con, and generally surviving the chaos of the con season in full gear.

Got Those Summertime, Those Summertime Adventures

Summer has arrived, convention season is at full-tilt, and in just a few short weeks Paizo staffers and gamers from all over will be heading to Gen Con 2016 in sunny Indianapolis! The show is always highly anticipated both because it's a great opportunity to get to see masses of gamers all together in one place to celebrate their hobby, and because new and exciting Paizo releases tend to drop at the show. But before we load up the trucks and ship off, let's take a look at what's coming out and what we've announced since last time we spoke.

OPC Log—16 Desnus 4716

There is no way to do everything at Gen Con by myself; there are just too many tasks and too many places to be. So every year a team of Lead Volunteers is named to help out. While I coordinate things between Gen Con and PFS, they do the same for all the volunteers. Months before the convention starts, just weeks after Gen Con 2015 ended, they started talking about Gen Con 2016. Through months of planning, generating schedules, corresponding with volunteers, compiling lists of supplies, they work closely with me to deliver a quality show. They arrive at Gen Con early and help me set up the Sagamore. Setup is a HUGE endeavor, involving unpacking pallets, building shelving, assembling table stands, folding papers, stuffing envelopes, sorting shirts... an almost endless list of tasks that all need to occur before Wednesday afternoon when our volunteers arrive. After four days of very little sleep, they help tear down the Sagamore, disassembling everything we built days before, packing up the pallets, rolling banners, and compiling a list of GM feedback. Only when everything is torn down and ready to return to Seattle do they take a breather and stop thinking Gen Con 2016. Then, a few weeks later, they review the feedback, read through the many post-Gen Con forum threads, and start thinking about Gen Con 50. The amount of time these volunteers spend putting the show together is immense and I cannot say thank you enough to them for all they do!

Gen Con, Baby!

We've got tons of material on tap for organized play fans at this year's show. First, the known info: Season of the Runelords, our third season of the Adventure Card Guild, wraps up in August 2016, and avid players will be able to triumphantly complete the season in the Sagamore ballroom. You'll be able to play any or all of the scenarios in SotRu at the show, and we'll even keep a copy or two of Season of the Righteous and Season of the Shackles tucked away for folks who want to catch up or try some new adventures.

A Record Year for Organized Play

A week ago we flew back to Seattle from another great Gen Con experience. By day we managed the Paizo booth, and after the exhibit hall closed, we ascended to the Sagamore Ballroom for a special event every night. On Thursday night we presented Pathfinder Society Special #6-97: Siege of Serpents, which debuted at PaizoCon 2015 but easily shattered past attendance records in the Sagamore. This was also an opportunity to thank Mike Brock for his service to the organized play campaign, announce 11 new Campaign Service Award recipients, and recognize the many GMs who have received their fifth star in the past year.

There is No Certainty, Only Adventure!

Last week the Year of the Serpent kicked off at Gen Con 2015! Along with the Pathfinder Society Specials that tie into the new season, we ran tables of the latest releases: #7-01: Between the Lines, #7-02: Six Seconds to Midnight, and #7-03: The Bronze House Reprisal. These adventures have Pathfinder Society agents scouring the streets of Katapesh, on a crunch mission for rare reagents, and sending the Aspis Consortium the message that no act of aggression is going to go unnoticed. And since our Pathfinder Society team is still on the road heading back home, let's take this opportunity to show off some of characters you'll face at the start of the Year of the Serpent!

Gen Con for Everyone

As gigantic as Gen Con Indy has become, it's not hard to say that the show has something for everyone. If it's a game or style of gaming you're looking for, you're more likely than not to find it there. The convention's courting of younger fans, families, and even non-gamers has gone a long way in making the show feel like an event for everyone. In the past several years, Gen Con has grown into a fantastic meeting place for gamers of all shapes, genders, sexual preferences, ethnicities, and ages. If you love gaming, there's sure to be a community at Gen Con for you.

Gen Con 2015 News and Official Call for Volunteers!

I was advised last year that we needed to plan to make Gen Con 2014 the biggest and best yet. And it certainly was! We scheduled 1,500 tables of Pathfinder Society during the convention. We showed the world our Kid's Beginner & Advanced Tracks, as well as the Pathfinder Beginner Box Introductions, Parts 1 and 2. We debuted the Silverhex Chronicles Quests. We hosted more than 20 seminars. And we launched the Pathfinder Society Adventure Card Guild! Gen Con was definitely a success and Paizo's biggest showing in history. But we can make it bigger and better this year!

Final PFS Numbers Count

We have our final tally of PFS RPG OP over the course of the four days at Gen Con.

Total tables - 1,476
Total seated players - 8,736
Total quest tables - 211
Total seated quest players - 842
Total new PFS numbers issued - 1,758

A huge thank you goes out to all HQ volunteers, VOs, GMs, and the player base. As I tell the VOs all the time, they are the best group of volunteers in the world and make my job much easier. Without the volunteers, we could not make PFS as awesome as it is. We have the best group of GMs and players as well. With the coordinated effort, we sat all real tickets among the 160 tables by nine minutes past the hour at the latest, and all generic tickets by 15 minutes past the hour.

I hope everyone had a fantastic time at Gen Con. Please feel free to provide feedback so we can improve next year's Gen Con experience. Finally, if you have any thank your or similar to pass on to the volunteers, please do so. They did a superior job and PFS went off with very few problems this year.

The card game team and our estimable Venture Officer community have put in many hours to bring this document to you, so we hope you enjoy it. We'll have printed copies available to read for those of you playing in the program at Gen Con, but for now, grab the PDF and get to reading!

Late to Class

Unfortunately, we've had some very bad news this week from our card printer. They had a problem with one of their presses, and many of the Class Decks they printed had to be destroyed. As a result, the retail release date for the Class Decks is moving from August 14 to September 3, and we won't be able to ship paizo.com preorders until shortly before that. And because you must have a Class Deck to participate in the Pathfinder Society Adventure Card Guild, that means that retailers won't be able to launch the program until September 3.

Gen Con Nostalgia: Accidental Hardcore

As the date for Gen Con closes in, everyone here at Paizo is still chugging away, making sure we're contributing our fair share to the best four days in gaming. But as our annual pilgrimage to Indianapolis gets closer, we often start wondering, "What's it going to be this year?" As in, what's the one story—or, more likely, bunch of stories—we'll be telling everyone upon our return home? Things happen at Gen Con that can only happen at Gen Con, so there's always some unbelievable tale to tell. Dozens of examples leap to mind, but, among those of which I haven't been sworn to secrecy, I find myself constantly coming back to one story in particular from nearly a decade ago.

News about Gen Con 2014 and Official Call for Gen Con 2014 Volunteers

For Gen Con 2013, I advised last year that we planned to make it the biggest and best Gen Con yet. And it certainly was. We scheduled 1,400 tables of Pathfinder Society over the four days. We showed the world our GM 101 and GM 201 workshops, Kid's Beginner & Advanced Tracks, and Beginner Box Introductions, Parts 1 and 2. Gen Con was definitely a success and Paizo's biggest showing in history. But we can make it bigger and better!

6th Annual Gen Con Costume Contest Voting!

Over the course of the last two weeks most of the staff have trickled back into the offices from Gen Con, sharing tales of great times, great people, and in some cases also sharing the con crud. As a cosplayer myself some of my favorite things to hear back from the other staff are about the cosplayers they met at the convention. Don't hesitate in knowing that we love the work you do as much as you love ours. Your costumes this year were incredible, and you'd be proud to hear just how excited some of the Paizo staff were when talking about meeting you.

It's the Iconic Samurai: Hayato!

Seattle Venture Captain Kyle Elliot as the Iconic Samurai Hayato! Kyle wanted to make sure I gave a shout out to the folks that helped construct this amazing cosplay, Attention Span Garb and Paizo's resident cosplayer and customer service rep, Erik Keith.

Kyle won't be participating in our costume contest, but *you* can!
Make sure to stop by the Paizo booth and have a blue shirted Paizo employee take your picture and get your email address! Remember, your costume needs to be from Pathfinder artwork (example: not just a bard, but specifically Lem; not just a fancy dressed lady, but specifically The Spymaster).

And if you aren't at Gen Con but have pictures of cosplay, send them to cosplay@paizo.com and we'll put them in our special cosplay photo album on Facebook! Include you name as you want it to appear for credit, the person/monster/thing you are cosplaying and let us know if you we're at a special event or convention when the picture was taken!

Happy costuming!

The last six weeks have been quite a slog for the development and editorial pits here at Paizo. We worked day and night, and most weekends, getting over two dozen products scheduled for Gen Con ready to go. To celebrate, many of us are going to kick back and actually take a whole weekend to unwind—maybe soak up the Seattle sun while it's out (yeah, we get sun sometimes!), go catch Iron Man 3, or even just sleep in while we can.
