This will be our third year at the Schenectady Wargamers Association’s Council of Five Nations. Since this is our region’s biggest gaming event we are making sure that Pathfinder Society is going to have a huge presence with over 50 tables. Every slot will have at least one scenario for each tier (1-5, 3-7, 5-9, & 7-11). There will be all three introduction scenarios for those just joining the Society. We will be closing out season 3 with all 8 of the Hao Jin Tapestry scenarios. Pathfinders will be getting their first taste of the wild lands of Varisia with the first 7 scenarios of season 4 scenarios including “Race for the Runecarved Key”, this year’s Battle Interactive. There will also be two tables of the Venture-Officer exclusive scenario, “The Cyphermage Dilemma”; one on Friday afternoon and the other Saturday afternoon.
In addition to these scenarios, there will be a number of other special Pathfinder events being run throughout the weekend, as well as contests to win and prizes to claim, including convention boons.
There are 3 full length Society sanctioned modules scheduled for the convention if you are looking for some more in-depth adventuring. Friday characters will get a chance to test themselves against the best warriors in the world in “The Ruby Phoenix Tournament”, Saturday will take Pathfinders into the “Realm of the Fellnight Queen”, and Sunday players must uncover the secrets of “The Midnight Mirror”.
Note: Modules take a least 2 slots of play to complete and may require players and GM’s to miss out on breaks.
For kids around 6-12 years old, we will be offering a number of great Pathfinder introductory events. Friday evening kids will get to be a little crazy with the short module “We Be Goblins!” Saturday morning and afternoon, we will be running the 4 Pathfinder Kid’s Track encounters, which were a huge hit at GenCon. After completing all 4 encounters each kid will receive a Pathfinder Diploma and can officially start their careers as Pathfinders. Sunday morning and afternoon, new Pathfinders will get a chance to show what they’re made of, as they are sent on their first official Society missions, with the intro scenarios “In Service to Lore” and “To Delve the Dungeon Deep”.
Due to the limited seating available at this convention we will be enforcing the following seating priority:
1st: Pathfinder ticket, signed up on Warhorn
2nd: Pathfinder ticket, Not signed up on Warhorn
3rd: Generic ticket, signed up on Warhorn
3rd: Generic ticket, Not signed up on Warhorn
