PaizoCon 2012: Registration is Open!

Monday, November 7, 2011

We are very proud to announce PaizoCon 2012, our annual gathering of Paizo staff, special guests, Pathfinder RPG players, and members of our message board community! 2012’s event will take place on July 6–8 at the Marriot Redmond Town Center hotel in Redmond, Washington. In addition to the regular annual festivities, PaizoCon 2012 is a celebration of Paizo’s 10th anniversary, as well as 5 years of the Pathfinder Adventure Path! The entire Paizo staff as well as a community of Pathfinder gamers, artists, and designers will be on hand with special events created just for the show. If you’ve never had a chance to visit PaizoCon, 2012 is definitely the best year to start. And if you have been to the show before, we look forward to seeing you again!

You can order your $40 three-day convention badge today. While you’re at it, be sure to pick up a ticket to the highly anticipated Pathfinder Preview Banquet, where we show off upcoming products and reveal secrets you won’t be able to learn anywhere else! The banquet has sold out every year we’ve held it, so it’s a good idea to pick up a ticket as soon as you’re sure you can make it to the convention.

This year we are pleased to announce a new location for PaizoCon: The Marriot Redmond Town Center hotel, a great facility situated along an outdoor shopping center with plenty of excellent options for local dining and quality shopping (including a game store and comic shop!). The hotel features more space for games and seminars than our previous location, an on-site bar and restaurant, and more rooms for attendees. The Marriott has extended a special offer of $85 per night for PaizoCon guests, available until June 13th. Make your hotel reservation by calling 1-425-498-4000, and don’t forget to mention PaizoCon to get the special room rate!

Stay tuned to the Paizo Blog in the coming weeks for more announcements about our Guests of Honor, special game industry guests, and events. In the meantime, please check out the PaizoCon FAQ, which answers a lot of commonly asked questions about the convention.

Please also visit paizo.com/paizocon, the official homepage of the convention, where we’ll post additional details as they become available.

We’re delighted to host this convention again, and to celebrate 10 successful years in game publishing! Please help us celebrate in July by attending PaizoCon 2012. We can’t wait to game with you!

Second sentence: "2012’s event will take place on July 6–8 at the Marriot Redmond Town Center hotel in Redmond, Washington. " So no, not at the same place. :D

I saw the sentence, but couldn't remember if it was the same place! Thanks Liz.

THIS. IS. AWESOME.

Love the July dates.

LOVE LOVE LOVE the new location. Redmond Town Center is the absolute BEST location to do this. Great restaurants. A game store.

We are even close to the Malt and Vine for Friday night!! W00t!

As the location has moved, we will need to reevaluate the Thursday night Meet and Eat event, as well!

Well done, Paizo....WELL DONE.

Previously we were at the Coast Hotel in Bellevue. While a nice location, we needed something a little bigger. We are very excited about the Marriott Redmond Town Center. I think you folks are going to like it, too. Personally I think the area is much more walkable (more food and stuff within walking distance).

I am super super stoked! This'll be my first 'con ever, so break out the cheap hooch!


I am so definitely there for this!!

Question: will there be some sort of VIP ticket package??


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Hmm, the fine folks at Marriott -- or at least, the one to whom I spoke -- says the special rate is not yet in their system.

(Yes, I'm an chronic over-planner.)

OK, who will fund my plane ticket?

Unless I land that snazzy job in France, in which case I just *might* be able to afford it.

Shadow Lodge

I'm sure I can offer a loan with a reasonable rate. :)

Ya'll must have read my mind in changing the dates this year. I was not looking forward to bringing a 2-month old along again. A 3-month old is way easier ;-). It seems the family tradition of each new child going to PaizoCon before his/her first birthday shall continue...

Congratulations on rolling up a new little bundle of joy!

So it's the same weekend as Westercon 65? Fortunately, that's also in Seattle next year, so it will be possible to do both with a little park-hopper madness.

The part I'm most looking forward to is that we'll get to share some details about that awesome thing that I can't even tell you about yet!

Yay! I'll be there unless something horrible happens!

Hotel employee says they have no event scheduled for those days and hence no special room rate...I'll give them a bit to straighten it out and try again. Whee!

Same thing they told me -- a little over an hour later and they still don't have anything.

Oh well, will try again later.

Shadow Lodge

My wife got the same response Russ. Guess we can wait until I get back next month to make reservations.

Paizo Employee Chief Operating Officer, Web Store Manager

It looks like the hotel is still setting up the room block code so give it a few more hours before calling to reserve your room(s). I'm expecting a call when they are ready so I'll jump back in then and post.

D'aww, my public execution, Vic? You can tell the folks all about it. I'm happy to return the spirit of Roman blood sport to the greater Seattle area.

I think I'll do a Kickstarter "fund Gorbacz's visit to Paizocon so you can punch him in the face in person".

Providing I'll get a visa, that is.

If I remember, you're rather tall, so some people (not me) would need an apple crate to reach. ;P

Aside from Kickstartering it, you could also apply for the Trans-Atlantic Fan Fund if you'd like to do a few more conventions while you're at it.

Yeah, I'll bring the crate with me. TOZ will gladly assist if necessary.

I have a few Polish conventions up ahead, maybe I can LARP a beggar there.

Nani and I are definitely going to be there in 2012. We're really sad we missed out this year.

Now to figure out plane reservations etc...

Does this mean a change in venue for the Meet & Eat as well?

Also: Grar! One week earlier and I could celebrate my b-day at the Con!

Quite likely....the Crab Pot has been awesome these past 3 years. But, it was a short distance away from the Coast Hotel, so it really worked out well. That'd be quite a bit more distance from Redmond, though.

I live in Redmond, so I'm pretty familiar with the area, but the trick is going to be finding a place that can handle 100+ people. Haiku is a new Asian seafood buffet that has opened in the town center, and it is the exact same location where we held the very 1st meet and eat event (with a whole 24 people). So, that'd be a really cool place, but it would be limited to 60 people MAX for their party room AND it might be pricey for some ($25).

My current thoughts are that we might stage several Meet and Eats in the Town Center. Lots of restaurant options....Claim Jumper, Desert Fire, Haiku, Golden Chopsticks, Matts' Rotisserie & Oyster Lounge, Spazzo Italian Grill & Wine Bar, Thai Ginger....well, heck! Check out the options!!

I'm not sure what the plan will be, but we will try to arrange something for that Thursday night!
