Run an Event at Paizo Con 2010!

Thursday, April 8, 2010

Are you attending PaizoCon 2010? (If not, tickets are still available!) If yes, have you visited this thread and volunteered to run an event at the show? What makes PaizoCon so great isn't just the interaction with the Paizo staff or the ability to play in a staff-run game, it's also the ability to sit and game with your fellow Paizo community members as well as run a game for your fellow community members! We're not beholden to a single system at PaizoCon. Want to run a Pathfinder RPG one-off? Great! How about a board game slot where you teach some folks your favorite board game ever? Also great! How about you playtest an upcoming scene in your home campaign with a willing audience? Perfect! There's no end to the ideas you could develop and run at PaizoCon 2010.

We're only taking event submissions until April 15, 2010 (a week from tomorrow). So visit the thread, tell Lilith and Timitius what you want to run (and follow their format) and we'll see you at PaizoCon this coming June!

'SOB'!

I would love to go Paizocon :(

I pox on ye, real life obligations !

And I think would have run D6 West End Games Star Wars adventure.

Can I still be the first one to sign up to join the Shadow Lodge ?

Speaking of "running an event"...I get the sense that could mean more than just "running a game"...right? So, if "someone" proposed to run a "seminar" or something on RPG Superstar and/or freelancing for Paizo, would that be worth doing?

And yes, I'm "aware" that I "used" quotation marks "way" too "much" in those "questions"...

But, in all seriousness, would it be worthwhile for some of the RPG Superstar Top 4 folks to do a bit of a Q&A panel or something on what they believe catches the eyes of the judges, voting public, etc. to maybe help folks who are striving to get into next year's contest? I'd be willing. I'd be surprised if Jason Nelson wasn't willing. And you guys could easily mandate that Rob McCreary, assistant editor, participate. Throw in Sean or Wes for the judge's perspective. And so on...?

Thoughts?

Events can include games (of course), contests, seminars, whatever. We want 'em! :D

Well, I remember last year Josh did the seminar to provide feedback on those who submitted for the Pathfinder Society Scenario open call. I'm not sure if he's going to do that one again. But, something similar could be done related to RPG Superstar. Or maybe just a seminar on freelancing for Paizo?

Even a small exercise like running through an attendee-driven design session to come up with an idea for a new wondrous item or elements for a new adventure proposal might be fun. Erik and James hosted something like that for one of the old "Writing for Dungeon" seminars from GenCon a few years back. And it was a lot of fun...

Regardless, this type of event would require one of the meeting rooms rather than a gaming table. And I'd imagine that would need some coordination through Mr. Frost. But, I'd be willing to throw down as a participant or even a moderator/organizer for an RPG Superstar-themed panel discussion. Somebody official give me the thumbs up and I'll post it in the other thread.

Sure, I'm down for the cause. Hook me up, bro.

Cool. I got the green light from Josh. So, I'll add it to the events thread. I've got you penciled in, Jason, so make sure your gaming schedule doesn't conflict or anything. ;-)
