We are thrilled to announce our 2019 Guests of Honor are Liane Merciel and Wayne Reynolds!
Liane Merciel is the author of critically acclaimed novels including The River Kings' Road, Dragon Age: Last Flight, and Pathfinder Tales: Hellknight. She has also contributed to game materials such as Paizo's Nidal: Land of Shadows, Faiths of Golarion, and other forthcoming releases.
Wayne Reynolds's work has appeared in roleplaying games, collectable card games, board games, and miniature designs. He has contributed cover art and internal illustrations for comics, novels, and historical reference books. His work has graced the covers of the Pathfinder Playtest Rulebook and numerous volumes of Pathfinder Adventure Path, as well as the Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook and every Pathfinder hardcover Paizo has produced since. Wayne continues to work with Paizo's designers to reveal never-before-seen corners of Golarion, while his own in-depth knowledge of historic weapons, armor, and fighting styles brings the most exciting elements of the Pathfinder RPG to life.
And returning for PaizoCon are our special guests from the Glass Cannon! Last year's smash-hit Guests of Honor included the Glass Canon Network crew and they'll be back again as Special Guests for 2019. They'll be hosting several live play games and other podcasting events throughout the four days so be sure to save some time in your gaming schedule to check them out.
In addition to our Guests of Honor and Special Guests, PaizoCon gives fans, friends, and freelancers an opportunity to meet, game, and network with the entire Paizo staff as well as other RPG industry folks. With the exception of the Preview Banquet held on Saturday evening, the Grand Ballroom will be filled with Pathfinder and Starfinder Society games and Pathfinder Adventure Card Game events run by the Organized Play Foundation (OPF). We'll have numerous games run by Paizo staff, RPG industry luminaries (including games run by the authors that wrote them), and by members of our amazing community. We also host seminars and workshops that range from deep dives into specific books we've published to world building, alien creation, and other topics for game developers, fiction writers, and RPG and sci-fi/fantasy fans alike.
On a personal note, I've been attending PaizoCon since 2009 and every year I look forward to the enthusiasm and excitement the community brings. I love seeing familiar faces, meeting new friends, and getting to see the people behind the forum avatars. After 12 years of PaizoCon and 11 years of running the show, Paizo is still finding lots of opportunity to improve the convention and the attendee experience. I'm happy to report, based on feedback from the community, in addition to the regular 8:00 AM-1:00 PM games the OPF will be running at least 10 tables of Society games during the 1:00 PM-6:00 PM time slots on Friday, Saturday (1:00 PM-5:00 PM), and Sunday afternoons. I will also be working with the OPF to leave a number of seats at Society games open folks who are unable to pre-register for events. I'm confident that these and other scheduling improvements will make 2019 one of our best PaizoCons so far!
I look forward to see you in May!
