Hey All You Magnificent PFS Piddlespotters--

As most of you know, I believe PFS's core is a social community and so whether you can make it to Paizocon or not, I hope that you will participate.

In the past, we've detailed our games, our meets, our greets, and our beerings. There are some good memories stored up in the threads of yesterPFS:

2011 PFS PaizoCon Bloggery
2012 PFS PaizoCon Bloggery (w/Grand Convocation and massive Banquet spoilers)
2013 PFS PaizoCon Bloggery (w/GenCon Special Run)
2014 PFS PaizoCon Bloggery
2015 PFS PaizoCon Bloggery
2016 PFS PaizoCon Bloggery (w/Starfinder announcement)

And this year, we get Starfinder and that could be really cool. I hope that some of our attendees will offer some notes from whatever experiences and seminars they attend.

For you attendees:

  • Post about whom you've met and where they are from.
  • Post about the games you're playing in, with whom, and fun details. (Avoid spoilers...and use spoiler tags if you're going to spoil!)
  • Post about extraPFSular activities.
  • Get others to share their feedback from PaizoCon.
  • Post links to pictures and media.
  • Post about neat characters you've played with.
  • Post any cool 'tricks' you've learned.
  • Post about the sessions and talks you've attended.
  • Post about how awesome your judges have been and what things they did well. Heck, even thank them.

For you non-attendees:

  • Tell us what sessions you want reports from;
  • Questions you want us to ask and to whom;
  • Things you want to know about;
  • Give lip/guff/sass/snark to PFS board personalities you know (or don't...either way, sass is encouraged).

I, like usual, promise nothing...except that I'll be twisting some arms of people here to join me in describing their experience playing PFS and Starfinder, and the ACG this weekend and the people that make it happen.

Shadow Lodge **

Everyone HAVE A GREAT TIME! Sorry I couldn't join you this year, but my memories of PaizoCon are pleasant ones nestled deeply in my mind.

As always, I'm particularly keen to see if they plan to do anything with their web site. I know that's not their focus, but sometimes they let slip something of their priorities.

Play-by-post doesn't get enough love (personal opinion), so those of you who are hardcore PbPers, get out there and spread the word to the staff so they know we're out here just as rabid about our hobby as the face-to-facers.

And thanks to Painlord for doing the blog again!

So, to kick this off:

I arrived at the hotel on monday and am setteling in well. This is my first time in the USA, so there are some differences to get used to. Like, why is there so much water im the toilets? Why is the bread so weird? And why is all the coffee so disapointing?

I have brought Stroopwafels for every table I am attending. And a good amount of licorice.

I have a full scedule starting off on thursday afternoon with an early game, and ending monday afternoon with a late game.
I will keeo you all informed about what develops.

A number of the MN lodge will be arriving at SeaTac around noon and have a 1pm kick-off table planned. Now I'm busy remembering how certain characters work as I've been out of PFS play for about a month and a half. Currently open for review: my courier occultist archer that outruns horses.

Uh, sorry about the coffee. It's more a function of proximity to the airport rather than a testament to the quality of the coffee in Seattle.

Yeah, you can expect less-good coffee from the hotel Starbucks...but maybe you'll get out to a Peets or some quality Blue Bottle or Stumptown or something worthwhile. If I recall correctly, the hotel buffet has good coffee. Hopefully that hasn't disappointed.

Water in the toilets? Uh...can't really explain. Maybe because water falls from the sky here all the time, that's how it done.

Bread? Hmm...can't say.

I grew up (and am still in) Canada, which is much like the US, but I fully agree about the bread and coffee. Our solution is to make our own in each case. There is good bread and coffee (and beer) in the US, but you are less likely to find it at a hotel. If you spend some time in Seattle, you should be able to find something satisfactory.

From what I understand, we over-roast our coffee as a rule here in the US, which makes it taste very bitter to Europeans. I have not had the chance to try coffee in Europe myself, though, to compare.

Well, Starbucks does, for sure. And many places don't use enough coffee when they brew, getting the less tasty elements pulled in, making it more sour and bitter.

Sour and bitter? Are you talking about the coffee, IPAs around here, or me?

/me is a known IPA beer hater. Give me lager any day.

I tell you what, the bagels at the continental breakfast ($15 for coffee, juice, bagel, yogurt buffet) are pretty darn good. They are nicely chewy and make me happy.

Uh, for some reason the coffee here is less good than I remember. Maybe it's a bad batch? ::grumble::

Ran into Nizari again, for like the 5th year in a row or something. He says he brought be chocolate from England for me. Sweet.

I see Waltero again. He's from New Orleans. I first met him in 2011.

And W. Kristoph Nolen joins me for breakfast. He went for the full buffett (with eggs and bacon and whatnot). Good on him. Eating food like a normal person. We catch up on our lives.

Ah, convention season.

If one watches carefully, the Painlord (Pathfinderus Painlordus) can be observed leaving its normal environs and embarking on its annual migration to PaizoCon (or rarely, the fabled GenCon). Once there, the Painlord will begin its famous "Blogging Call" which will attract many others of the Pathfinder species to echo it - generally bringing either joy (or jealousy) to all who observe this phenomenon!

(Jealous over here that PaizoCon is well beyond my travel range. Hope you all have fun out there!)

Yarrr.

My last PaizoCon was 2013 but I'll be making my way up this year.

I'm currently taking a break and trying to figure out as many ways to torture Painlord as I can

I have, indeed, had breakfast with Painlord. Like a normal person. "Like" a normal person. i do a pretty good impression of a normal person. I must have Painlord fooled.

Enjoying the time here, so far. It's mostly a social convention for me, this year. As a professional artist, I'm sure I'll be making contacts, as well. But, I don't even have any events, at all. I get to be social all weekend.

And, of course, post a lot, so that Painlord will know where to avoid, so he can dodge me.

This. Combined with that it lowers the amount of caffeine, its makes for a disappointing cup of joe :(

No joining painlord for breakfast, I decided to sleep in. Untill someone started using a leafblower outside my room. I am awake now.

Hey! I just saw GM Lamplighter, aka Scott Young, aka my favorite Canadian. And yes, mostly sure he's my favorite Canadian. Mostly because the only other Paizoian Canadian is Thursty, which clearly means Lamplighter is my favorite.

Good to see him here again.

Drinking coffee and reading A Confederacy of Dunces, about to play in my first ever PFS game in a couple of hours!

*****

Day 1 - up at 4am for my flight. Thursty is on my plane. A portent, clearly.
Arrive at hotel, drop bags, waiting for room to be available. Napping and eating wonderful cookies provided by
the front desk staff.

First person I see is Painlord, in company with Kristoff Nolan. Another portent. This will be a good weekend.

That's the kind of portent that makes sane people turn around and hide in their basement for the weekend.

I got in yesterday. Went out to Bellevue to meet up with local friends for "the best Szechuan in Washington." It did not disappoint. The fact that the ice-cream parlor I was told was "amazing" was closed for the night did disappoint. Coming from the sprawling American South (Atlanta then Dallas-Fort Worth) I heartily approve of Seattle's transit system. It may require bus changes and be confusing to a non-local but at least you can get from Sea-Tac to non-downtown Bellevue without a car.

Slept til about 9:30 this morning. Just met Andy Christian and HMM in the lobby; looking forward to playing in Tineke's game with HMM this afternoon. The rest of the weekend involves lots of PFS, a Call of Cthulhu game with James Jacobs, and general skullduggery making new friends.

Scarab Sages *****

So my wife and I pulled in via train this morning with the MN crew that decided to roll instead of fly. But our Con started on Wednesday as we played the first part of Thursty's Ire of the Storm. Met Tineke for the first time and ran into Kevin, Scott and Russ so far.

Good. Saw Thursty...and you probably won't believe it, but he was buying a beer.

And met GM Hmm. And Terry. And met W E Ray.

Meeting GM Hmm is a thing because she says that it's all my fault she's involved in Play By Post. That might be true. But since she's delightful and funny, I doubt anyone is angry about that.

A group went off to get Thai across the street.

** Venture-Agent, California—San Francisco Bay Area North & East

PaizoCon is off to an excellent start as I was randomly sitting next to Rob Knop on the plane! We had a delightful conversation that was only a little bit about gaming.

*****

Saw my first Paizonians! Mark Seifter and Linda Zayas-Palmer zoomed through the lobby wearing the blue Paizo shirts. Think I saw James Jacobs as well, but he was in civvies and across the lobby, so I couldn't be sure. More folks arriving carrying lots of gear. VC Stephen White was mustering something in the lobby, but by the time I picked up my tablet they were gone.

Had a lovely lunch with Hilary and Bret.

Setting up my game and bumping into wonderfull people. Tallow is not a horse but has a great mane. Leg-o-lamb is not a hamshank but a swell guy that gave me blackmail material on my RVC.

Andrew Hoskins has the goods. That is all you need to know.

I also got to meet thursty. He got a beer. Not a mutated stork. Or a space bug.

Majuba just rolled in. Glorius shirt.

Time to start this con!

Scarab Sages

My iPad just ate a post. Retyping, blargh.

Things are going well, and having fun. I've already gotten to see and greet lots of people. Neil Spicer, and the ineffable Thurston Hillman, with firm handshakes all around.
Got to give a hug to, and sit down and catch up with cartographer extraordinaire Anna Meyer, since it's been eight years since we last saw each other. She's doing great work with both Lone Wolf Publishing and Kobold Press, if memory serves.

There's a steady stream of folks arriving now, and every time I pass the front desk there's folks I know, but names I can't recall. Neil had to help me remember Will Chase and Heather Payne's names (Paizo staffers, both), because I'm so bad at that.

Looking forward to seeing the first things creeping out into hallways, since the staff is already here and setting up, and there's sure to be banners and signs and stuff out with geeky goodness for snapshots.

I just came off the train with five other Minnesotans: Diane & Andy Christian, Earl Gessner, James Krolak and Bret Indrelee! So far, I've hugged Tineke (Woran), Painlord, and I met Paizo Employees Linda + Mark, Tonya, Thursty, the eye-stalk free Adam Daigle and a few others.

We met Andrew Hoskins and got a chance to talk with him about From the Tome of Righeous Repose, which I'll be GMing tomorrow. It was neat meeting the author and getting a chance to gush with him about his work.

Majuba gave me his famous Goblin Brains, which are peanut-flavored (who knew?) and Tineke passed me some wonderful stroopwafels (which I am still trying to learn to prounouce.)

We're just about to start Woran's Five Star Confirmation game, so I'll write more. But everyone... please, come find me if you're here at PaizoCon. I want to meet you!

Sugar. Really, most bread in this country has sugar in it.

Wow.

Let me confess to more than my usual ignorance, but I think that there are not one, not two, but 3 (Three!! AH HA HA!) different space settings now, and they are all being played in once shape or another at PaizoCon?

We have Starfinder, which I mostly get and hope to see this weekend.

We have Aethera, which has some games running.

And we have Cow-on-a-Cliff, wait no, Legendary (Ledge-End-Dairy) Planet?

I'm not sure I get all of them yet and what they all represent. Can anyone explain? I believe I'll be playing in the Cow-Cliff Caper on Sunday and want to know what I'm getting into.

* * *

Just did the rounds of the common areas: saw many groups of recognizable yahoos hanging. There are 4 PFS games going in the Evergreen rooms and Paizo Staff is setting up the event space.

Saw regulars Rusty, Mr. Slanky, Jack Brown, Leg-o-Lamb & more of the Minnesota crew, V-God Al Rigg and more.

We are being amused by Andrew, and disparaged by Pain, while he makes dinner plans with MisterSlanky.

We are officially not learning anything

The Exchange ***

Made a mistake to enter the bar. Found a table with a bunch of drunks happy souls.

Al Rigg, Andrew H, Jack Brown, Kate Baker, Adam (from Ottawa/SF Hunter's Point), & Lake County's own Gary Peppers yakking it up and drinking at a rate that I can't keep up with. (I haven't started yet.)

They are all complaining about how many GM stars they have. I'm so outclassed.

Grand Lodge *****

2 people marked this as a favorite.

I'm running the 10-11 table of Solstice Scar tonight in the slot zero. I hope I can remember what it's about.
