SCARAB Gaming Convention 2013 January 18-21 Columbia, SC


Pathfinder Society Grand Lodge

1 to 50 of 68 << first < prev | 1 | 2 | next > last >>
Osirion *****

Well, we are well into planning and preparing for the next SCARAB Gaming Convention and have already attended a number of conventions in the south east:

ConNooga
StellarCon

and we are scheduled to attend several more in the next couple of months:

GnomeCon
X-Con World
ConCarolinas

Plus we have several games days planned around the Carolinas and Eastern GA. Our event at Firefly this past weekend in Lexington, SC had great attendance and we had people from as far away as Virginia, make the drive just to hang with the SCARAB Swarm. We had attendees from Myrtle Beach, Charleston, Savannah and Augusta as well as Charlotte. We were happy to see so many old faces and meet some new friends.

Our next big retailer day will be FREE RPG Day in June.

Come on out and play some games with us! If you are interested in having SCARAB attend your retailer event or convention please just drop me a line.

Osirion *****

This weekend you will find the SCARAB Swarm at GnomeCon in Savannah, GA and you can sign up for GM slots or player slots here:

WARHORN

We have some awesome prizes to give away!!!!

Osirion *****

GnomeCon was a great event! We had a ton of fun and now you can look for the SCARAB Swarm to next appear at XCON World in Myrtle Beach, SC and you can register for a GM or player spot HERE.

Ditto on the Gnomecon. I had a fun time, you put a lot of work into it and I believe everyone had a GREAT time. Thanks Del!

Osirion *****

I will be in Charleston for Gathering in the Park May 12th with Thom and some other great GMs having some PFS FUN. Find out more here.

Osirion *****

Change of plans ... Gathering in the Park is moving to July and possibly a venue change? More info to come as I get it.

That means we are going to GeekOut 2012 in Ashville, NC on the 12th. Come on out and meet the SCARAB Swarm, play some PFS and get a chance to grab some great prizes.

Then, don't forget that XCON is the next weekend on the 18-20th of May where you will be able to get your game on with the swarm and enjoy Myrtle Beach, SC.

Registration for both events is open and you can reserve your spot at a table here:

GeekOUT 2012 - Ashville, NC - May 12, 2012

XCON World - Myrtle Beach, SC - May 18-20, 2012

COME ON OUT AND HAVE SOME FUN!!!!

Osirion *****

GeekOUT 2012 - Ashville, NC - May 12, 2012 is filling nicely and we are starting to get some PFS registrations for XCON World - Myrtle Beach, SC - May 18-20, 2012 rolling in. Yeah!

If you cannot make either of these events then you can catch SCARAB at ConCarolinas in June and I still have ONE spot available in the hotel room for any GM willing to run 4 or more scenarios.

Osirion *****

MACE is this weekend. We have 28 tables on the schedule and so far 24 of them will make. COME ON OUT AND HAVE SOME FUN!!!

Osirion *****

Several GMs have asked, "What to I need to bring to MACE?" If you are running/GMing for SCARAB at MACE or anywhere else for that matter you do not need to bring anything other than a great attitude and enthusiasm and it is recommended that you bring the copies of the core assumption you need.

  • We provide maps and mapping materials
  • We provide Minis, counters, etc
  • We will have the scenarios printed and ready to go (NO you may not keep them - they belong to the SCARAB library)
  • We will have chronicles printed
  • We will have the handouts and faction missions printed
  • We will have a printer available
  • We have extra everything, dice, minis, pens, pencils, etc
  • We have dozens of copies of the core assumption available
  • We will have Hero Lab available and usually bring at least one Hero Lab computer
  • We have PFS IDs for new players and sign-in sheets for GMs

Osirion *****

Recruiting GMs for SCARAB. Sure you can go to other conventions and run games and maybe you get a GM boon and maybe you'll get lucky and draw something else.

Look at the value we place on your time and energy here at SCARAB!

When you say "1/4 of a room," do you mean you pay 1/4 the cost of my room, or you're giving me a spot in a room shared by 4 people?

1/4 of the cost.

Osirion *****

Both. For those without room arrangements already we are doing it the same way Paizo did it at GenCon. A room shared by 4 people. If you are already a part of a group we will give you credit (up to the 1/4 of the value of the con room rate) that can be used at the convention in the dealers room or at the cantina. We will not reimburse with cash.

SCARAB Game Days

The next SCARAB Game Day is this weekend November 17, 2012 at:

Firefly Toys and Games

Firefly is located at:
5060 Sunset Boulevard
Lexington, SC 29072
Phone:(803) 996-3473

We have prizes and boons!

We have 12 sessions of PFS on the schedule and you can sign up at:

Warhorn

The next game day is scheduled in December and it will also be at Firefly.

The response to these has been so overwhelming that we are looking to move every three months and will hopefully be running the next game days in Georgia just over the South Crak-a-laky border.

Osirion *****

I could still use between 3 and 4 GMs willing to run 7 sessions.

If you are interested please let me know.

Qadira ***

I'm not a regular Warhorn user but is there any way to reorganize the gaming schedule to make it more legible? Right now it's just sorted by start time of the slots which means the PFS scenarios are scattered amongst 2-hour, 3-hour, and 4-hour board gaming slots and all-day minis tournaments. I'd love to see all the PFS games together.

Taldor *** Venture-Lieutenant, North Carolina—Asheville aka zylphryx

PFS games all have start times of 8am (until 1pm), 2pm (until 7pm) and 8pm (until 1am). Within those windows I think there are only PFS slots listed ... or maybe I just signed up early enough to miss the other events. ;)

No, you're right. It's just that (taking Saturday for example) there's 2 columns, then PFS (8-1) then 5 columns: 8-7, 8-11, 11-1, 1-5, 2-4, <scroll right> ah here we are, more PFS (2-7), 3 more columns, more PFS.

It's just particularly confusing because everything is running in different length slots and starting at different times. I was just wondering if it was possible to group all the PFS at the start (or the end).

Osirion *****

This is a failing commentary to the current version of warhorn. It arranges slots by start time (which is great but...) and will not let you arrange them any other way. The way they are set up we wanted to organize the schedule by slot # but warhorn just won't let us do it. Maybe version #2. We donated some $$$ to the warhorn creator and will continue to do so in the hopes that the software continues to improve.

Osirion *****

It may help you to use the grid option. That way you can isolate on your screen just the tables that start with a PFS.

Del, will you be reporting the PFS scenarios for Scarab or will people be reporting their own sessions?

So will the maps that aren't premade (such as flipmats and map packs) by Paizo be ready to go or will the GM need to draw out?

Osirion *****

We will be reporting all sessions.

We have a LOT of them in full size and full color. You may need to do some drawing, but it just depends on the scenario

We will have several mats and ample drawing materials available.
