The more serious answer is just email Mike now and ask. Of course there's no guarantee, but it's better than nothing!

I know, but I figure that would be a bad precedent. Don't want him deluged with a bunch of early emails before he's ready to process them.

Not sure exactly where this hotel is compared to other "Airport" hotels but if it's not too far away I found a place last trip to Seattle that was a 50's diner style. Huge meals, reasonable prices. I know where it is, right by the new Hampton Inn, just trying to recall the name.

Te rates we've shown should be available to all of our attendees. Just be sure to mention that you are there for PaizoCon.

My best guess is that may have been the 13 Coins...?

Hmm, kind of up the hill to the east form the airport, I assume the 7-11 will be doing big business on the corner....looks like parking shouldn't be terrible.

i don't remember that area too well (haven't lived down that way for 15 years), but should be reasonably safe for cars.

Some accidents have made it so I won't be going to PaizoCon this year. Anyone that can take my tickets for the con/banquet off my hands, pm me. I have two sets.

It is still early enough in the process that Customer Service can help refund your tickets if it ends up that you cannot attend. Just let us know!

Badge and Banquet for 2 = $150
Hotel for PaizoCon = $327
Flights from Finland = $6,532
Time in Seattle = priceless

Now to figure out how to explain this to my better half third time...

Hmmmm.... Badge and Banquet CHECK....Flight from East Coast...CHECK.....Room reserved CHECK

Attending first PaizoCon...CHECK

What???? There's NO INFORMATION I can find on the convention events? I don't play Pathfinder Society so what else is there to do? I want to do some role-playing but not Pathfinder Society.
What other events, work shops, are there?

Where is a list of what happened at last years 2012 PaizoCon?

Help a "newbie" out here! I'm sure many first time attenders have the same questions. ;)


P.S. I call "DIBS" for sitting at Erik Mona's banquet Table! WHOO HOO! I get to sit next to gaming ROYALTY!

Hey Monkplayer,

It will be another few months before we begin to post the events. We are still coordinating the Special Guests and working on our internal programming for the show.

We will have a variety of panels and workshops that are open seating, as well as open gaming areas and plenty of non-Pathfinder Society gaming.

Keep your eyes peeled for more news!

Wow. I am a tremendous fan of Paizo and wouldn't miss a PaizoCon if I could help it...but that's more dedication than I can muster. I don't think I've spent that much on gaming in any entire year I can remember, even when I was buying more than I do now.

It's not easy to read, but the event listing is here. Don't let the long list of PFS events fool you, there were other games available. Keep an eye on the blog for event submissions and you could even put up your own event. I might have one of my own this year. ;)

Monkplayer, keep an eye out for other non-official games as well. Last year I got to play Star Frontiers and a Firefly game using the Deadlands mechanics; previous years included Star Wars and other RPG and non-RPG games. Then there were other official games (like James Jacobs' CoC game) which should fill any need for non PFS play.

Heading to the 2013 festivities. I'll be dragging my Zombicide game along for anyone looking for a fun board game to play.

This was a great idea. I got a good idea of what similar events may happen for 2013.

I'm a newbie GM and want to learn all I can about being a great GM. What events/work shops where there last year centered around Gming?

Who will attend this year's con that's considered a phenomenal GM? Monte Cook? How do you get the opportunity to talk with them?

No clue who the special guests will be yet. The special guests have been pretty approachable in the past.

As to phenomenal GMs, it really depends on the game you want to play and who's running what. If you don't want to run any PFS, you'll be thinning some of your options, but there are always great games to be had.

When events are announced and sign-ups go live, there has been a way to sign up with a buddy. IIRC, it's been limited to one buddy, but I acknowledge I haven't used it so I don't recall every detail. Presuming something similar is offered again thus year, it will be part of the event announcement.

There are lots of phenomenal GMs you've never heard of, so I'd say don't get hung up on someone's fame as an indicator of their skill or enjoyability at running a game. That said, if you want to it a table with an industry pro, there are PLENTY of those run by Paizo staff, Paizo freelancer contributors like me, and 3PP authors (also like me), many of whom are delightful GMs, and even if someone isn't the world's greatest GM by some objective measure (if that even exists), the chances are pretty good that they and the others at your table will be pretty fun people to spend a couple of hours with, and then it's off to your next game.

My goal is to run at least *one* four hour game at PaizoCon—whether it's an adaptation of a video game, the sequel to Big Trouble in Little China, or a classic adventure from Paizo's Dungeon magazine days, or leading a group of elite paladins into the Worldwound, we shall see. :D

Aw shucks, glad you and the missus enjoyed.

I usually try to run a session or two at PaizoCon (I've even run PFS games a few times), though it's fun to play as well! Also, don't underrate the value of private/pick-up games (like the ongoing "Paladin in Hell"), panel discussions, or just chatting it up with people you know or people you don't!

One of my other hats is as an educational researcher, and I remember the first time I went to the American Educational Research Association conference I was running from session to session, panel to panel, seeing all these amazing educators and hearing papers presented, etc., and being confused as to why I saw so many people sitting around talking in the halls. I thought to myself, "Don't they know they're MISSING everything?"

It wasn't until I had been to a few more conferences that I realized that they weren't missing a thing. The meetup with people from around the country or around the world, in the context of some kind of meeting of general common interest, was as big or bigger than the conference itself. Sure, they wanted to share research and learn new ideas, but it also served as a convenient excuse to see familiar faces and reconnect. My advice to you is not to neglect that time and that opportunity.

Be polite, of course. Don't be pushy and interrupt somebody in the middle of a conversation, but also don't be shy about introducing yourself. Heck, you can talk about things that have nothing to do with gaming. Greg Vaughan and I first got to know each other chatting about basketball!

Above all, just be open to having a good time, and keep your head up and around to spot an opportunity to make a connection (or even a friend). The games will be there and gone, but a friend you'll remember long after the dice are packed away.

What Jason said.

Plus, remember this mantra: if you're not having fun, do something else. There's plenty to do at any convention, and PaizoCon is no exception.

Out of curiosity, does PaizoCon draw a lot of vendors to it, like Chessex dice, or the HeroLab people, or any of that stuff? Or is it all Paizo, all the time?

Last year had Kobold Press, Louis Porter Jr. Games, and someone else, my memory is failing me. I believe WAR was selling art as well. So, not a huge selection, but I'm sure it will grow with time.

Lone Wolf sets up and mans the Hero Lab Character Creation Stations outside of the PFS play area every year, and we'll be back again this year. We don't have a table in the vendor room, but we're readily available to provide demos and answer questions throughout the show. In fact, our hours of availability are actually longer than the vendor room in order to give everyone access to the Character Creation Stations prior to the first round of games in the early morning. :)

We'll also be doing multiple Hero Lab seminars at PaizoCon and showing off our new Realm Works product, which will be officially releasing in July this year.

Reaper has been there the last few years providing a few tables of paint and take fun, and I think a workshop too.

Dale McCoy from Jon Brazer Enterprises is the other 3PP vendor that TriOmegaZero forgot.
