OPC Log, 6 Calistril, 4717

Tuesday, February 7, 2017

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.

Once back in the office, the team and I will be putting final polish on some items in preparation for announcing them to our players. Keep an eye on the blogs throughout February for some exciting news!

Convention Travel Schedules

With the launch of the 2017 travel season, the team will be setting out for locations around the world. Consider coming out to one of the conventions below to say hi and roll some dice with us! Besides the list below, some of the Pathfinder Society staff will be at Origins and the team will see you at PaizoCon and Gen Con 50! I'm asking Chris to post the list on the website and will add more as we have confirmations.

Tonya

  • 2/17-2/20 DundraCon, San Ramon, California
  • 3/2-3/5 Emerald City Comic Con, Seattle, Washington
  • 3/31-4/2 Who's Yer Con, Indianapolis, Indiana
  • 6/4-6/7 UK Games Expo, Birmingham, United Kingdom

John

Keeping him busy with writing Season 8/9. He did get to attend SCARAB last month!

Linda/Mark

  • 2/23-2/26 TotalCon, Marlborough, Massachusettes
  • 4/22-4-23 Quad Cities GameFest, Davenport, Iowa

Other Paizo Staff

  • 2/10-2/12 OwlCon, Dallas, Texas
  • 3/23-3/26 GaryCon, Lake Geneva, Wisconsin
  • 6/4-6/7 UK Games Expo, Birmingham, United Kingdom

Interactive Specials

It is our pleasure to announce two interactive specials for this year's convention season. The first will debut at PaizoCon, with its European Debut at UK Games Expo. It will be on limited release until Gen Con, after which it will be available for conventions worldwide. This special, titled "The Solstice Scar" is a multi-table RPG interactive for levels 1-11. There are a few twists, but I'll leave it to John to tell those tidbits in a later blog.

The second special will debut at Gen Con and will be a multi-table interactive for both RPG and ACG. Once again, I'll leave it to John to reveal the details.

5-Star GMs

Another month means more GMs reaching the 5-star goal. The following GMs successfully ran 150 games, including 10 special scenarios and 50 unique adventures. They also ran a game for a Venture-Captain, who confirmed they know what they are about. Thanks for the hours and hours of effort that went into completing the tasks. Congratulations on reaching your 5th star.

  • Brent Bowser
  • Chris Brockley-Blatt
  • Brian Brumbaugh
  • Geoff Griffith
  • J Michael Neal
  • James Risner

Gen Con Volunteer Update

So far, 231 volunteers completed the questionnaire. But there is still space on the volunteer roster. This year, we have over 160 tables of games scheduled for each slot at the Gen Con! Which translates in to loads of GMs and volunteers. I'm starting the task of emailing potential volunteers today and hope to have them all completed by Thursday morning. If you haven't gotten a status update by Thursday evening, and you checked your inbox, your spam filter, and your cat (because we all know cats have mysterious powers), then send me an email (genconpfsvolunteer@paizo.com) and we can sort things out.

If your interested in volunteering, check out the Call for Vols Blog and click on the questionnaire link at the bottom.

Also, snow has arrived in Seattle! Good thing I still have my winter boots. But that asks the question—where is your next game? Do share your exciting Pathfinder Society plans! The team may find a new convention to attend!

Until next time—Explore, Report, Cooperate!

Congratulations to all GMs who attained 5* status. Your dedication, and investment of time and money is appreciated.

A special congratulations to Chris, and big 'thank you' to her, Carol and all their minions for organising and running a throughly excellent ConTingency down in the New Forest a few weeks ago.

Much PFS was had by all :-)

Two interactives per year, with one available at UKGE 17 is much appreciated, so 'thank you' also to Tonya, John and the team for committing to this. I understand that they take a huge amount of staff effort to produce. Looking forward to hearing how it goes at PaizoCon and running this in Birmingham in June.
