I was wondering if the Pathfinder Society has ever thought of possibally bringing games to furry conventions. Alot of friends i have in the furry community either play pathfinder or have expressed interet in it. So what do you think?

Anyone can create events, but to create a con you'll need to get the help of your local Venture Captain.

Go here: http://paizo.com/pathfinderSociety/events

and enter your Zipcode and it should bring up your local Venture Captain or one nearby. Coordinate with them.

So FurryCon, or FurCon perhaps?

***

I find there is a lot of crossover interest in similar genres. It's not at all uncommon to find PFS games at anime, sci-fi, steampunk, and comic cons, so I wouldn't think bringing it to a furry con/community would be that far of a stretch. Pathfinder can be played by anyone, but it's up to the local players/coordinators/convention chairmen to set it up. If there is a local furry con (or any con) in your area that you want to bring Pathfinder to, talk to the con organizers and find out if they are willing and able to host some tables. Or, find out who your local venture officer is and ask what cons near you they already play Pathfinder at and if they can help you coordinate PFS at whatever con you're interested in.

I'll point out that the convention organizers cooperation is likely to be needed, but your local VOs efforts aren't necessarily required.... This is particularly useful where the local VO isn't particularly local.

If you don't have a friendly local VO (they're all friendly, so that's emphasis on the local), you can get in touch with Mike Brock.

You can organize play in a variety of fashions in a variety of venues, so Explore, Report, and Cooperate wherever you can safely coordinate!

I would suspect that such players might be a bit disappointed to learn that any "furry" races (such as kitsune) aren't playable in PFS without a special boon.

Atleast one alternate tiefling is rather furry

And there's Tengu, for folks who like birds.

Also, getting an event set up at one of these cons with enough tables might qualify the event for racial boon support which could grant players access to the boons that would let them play their furry little fox folks.

The only way you'll get PFS at such conventions is to get someone to coordinate at those conventions. I'd say you are a prime candidate for the job!

What's the minimum table count again for "con" status? "Mini-con" status?

***

15 tables and 6 weeks notice (given to Mike Brock) is required to get prizes/boons from Paizo. But you can still run PFS at conventions no matter how few tables you have. The prizes and boons are a nice incentive to draw players in, but not necessary to run scenarios.

And since people are talking about furry-themed characters, there's also the Agathion-Blooded Aasimar (Idyllkin) from Blood of Angels. The text says, they "often possess bestial qualities such as dragon scales, fish scales, fur, manes or talons. Slit pupils, pronounced canines, and furry ears are all common ..."

And where better to get a Kitsune boon, really?
