TL;DR looks like that "one of these years" trip to PaizoCon isn't going to happen for me. Not after I hear about how one of my friends was treated by its attendees, and not after I hear that PaizoCon staff basically blew it off. No, I'm not going into specifics--that isn't the point. This is b~~@#$#!, and I want no part of it.
Encourage your friend to contact myself, Chris Lambertz or Jeff Alvarez as soon as possible. Jeff's contact number is in the program book, Chris and myself can be contacted via email (firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com or our personal emails listed in the contact section) or by heading to the PaiozCon store. The three of us are the PaizoCon staff that would be contact points for this and none of us have been informed of any issues. Paizo takes harassment and the safety of our attendees very seriously and we would appreciate a chance to resolve this with your friend.

There's always the threat of an attack by say, a giant space dragon. The kind that eats the sun once every 30 days. It's a nuisance, but what can you expect from reptiles?
Yeah, I always leave a lanyard in my backpack since a lot of cons use pins or flimsy string holders.
The default badge for PaizoCon is of the white string nature. We do have the Pathfinder lanyards in the convention store though!
We've just finished freeing up some stock of the Rusty Dragon Inn Cases that were in stuck orders. If you add the case to your cart as a regular order, you can add the case premium, the Rusty Dragon Inn Bar, for $49.99. If you start a subscription this will happen automagically and you will receive a 75% discount on the case premium in addition to the subscription discount on the case.
Robot Chris: Suspicions rise that Cosmo is a bunch of sentient dumplings in human suit
Cosmo: Even I am not that awesome.
Katina: wait, what?
Katina: That’s not the real cosmo, guys. he said he’s not awesome
Gary: well i tried to pull his mime makeup off because it sure loooked like a rubber mask
Katina: Someone do that blood test from The Thing on him!
Cosmo: Naw... it’s jsut THAT how awesome a sentient Dumpling Golem would be
Christopher: Sentience is directly proportional to caffeine consumption.
Gary: i'm sorry.. about all the blood
Robot Chris: wow I read that as “out of blood”
Gary: do we need to send the blood cart over by your desk
Katina: ANYTHING FROM THE BLOOD TROLLEYYYY </cute old british lady accent>
Christopher: If he was sentient dumplings, one would hope it would be bloodless.
Robot Chris: wow this is weird
Katina: Well, you know what they say. You dim sum, you lose sum.
Games need to be scheduled through paizo.com if they are public. This year, Seattle VL Louis Manko Levite is coordinating the mid-slot PFS games. We are listing them on http://paizo.com so that folks can see their entire schedule in one place. However, I wanted to wait until after the lottery had been run and open registration had begun to make sure folks GMing for those games had a chance to see the rest of the schedule before making that choice. Since not all attendees know about Warhorn or may wish to create an account on a 3rd party’s website, and so we ensure there is plenty of space in the PFS hall, anyone running a pre-planned, mid-slot (1pm-6pm) PFS game should coordinate with our Seattle VL. Anyone looking for a mid-slot game should check out the offerings on paizo.com.

Between Maid Merisiel and poisoning-disguised-waiter Damiel from the influence system art piece in Ultimate Intrigue, we're getting close to being able to staff an inn filled with disguised iconics. Now all we need is a disguised innkeeper!
I do know how to ensure patrons get a good night's rest.

We are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the first shipment of Beginner Boxes from our manufacturer. They are supposed to arrive end of this week or possibly next. Our warehouse is prepping for the pallets to hit the loading dock so we can start shipping them out as soon as possible. The next update will hopefully be when they arrive!
Some of the panels which have been run for several years in a row have had their titles given a bit of an update. In some cases this is to allow us to focus on a particular aspect of the content, in others to broaden the scope of what might be discussed and some just got new names to be a bit more descriptive. The Horror in RPGs panel is one of these events. Its popular enough that I do not foresee it being cut from the PaizoCon schedule anytime soon. The updated title for Horror in RPGs panel is "Horror Roleplaying: Terror Tales & Techniques." I had thought we got pages for all the seminars up, but I'm not seeing this one created yet so I'll look into that shortly.
