Meet the Intern: Savannah

Thursday, June 14, 2012

Hello all!

I'm Savannah Broadway, the newest resident of Internistan, which was established by my fellow intern, Jerome. For those of you that were wondering, he's still alive and well as far as I know—our schedules don't often overlap, lest we be forced to knife-fight to the death over the computer. I don't know if you all remember the pictures of the desks of previous interns, but our realm has relocated to the warehouse. On the plus side, this means access to a lovely set of windows that mostly overlook bushes and bit of the parking lot, and getting to listen in on whatever music the warehouse crew is currently playing.

I'm new to the state of Washington, having temporarily relocated here from tiny southern Illinois. Next fall will be my junior year at Southern Illinois University Carbondale studying Creative Writing and working in the Preservation lab. I've been into reading and writing for as long as I can remember, but I started roleplaying games about two and a half years ago. Since then I've loved the storytelling aspect of the game, both as a player and a GM. I enjoy running bards, barbarians, a few sorcerers, and once a chaotic good necromancer with an undead dodo familiar named Percy.

Working at Paizo (even for the week or so that I've been at it) has been a blast. The first time I pulled into the parking lot I saw that the car next to me sported a pair of fuzzy d20s and knew that I had found the right building. My tasks so far have been writing summaries for some of the Pathfinder Tales, working on maps, and updating the infamous Rules Database. Also on the list is braving Cosmo, who hasn't quite given up on insisting that I bring him coffee and likes to try to act like a ninja. On another note, you'll be able to see my very first work for Paizo in the upcoming Pathfinder Adventure Path #59: The Price of Infamy.

All in all, I'm sure that this summer will be a blast. The database may be intimidating and the mouse wheel may refuse to scroll down, but I can't think of any other place I'd rather intern. With any luck, I'll see you all at PaizoCon!


Welcome to our newest Intern, Savannah!

Two days later and she's still around.

Is the intern grinder on the fritz?

Congrats on the internship!

Assuming you are coming back in the fall, should I expect you to come join us for some Pathfinder Society play at Castle Perilous? It's walking distance from the campus, after all...

Oddly enough, I've never actually played a Society game. My own group on campus has kept me pretty busy. Mostly Hunter games, and a Pathfinder homebrew set in Europe's dark ages. I don't doubt that I'll be at Castle P, though--for a new set of dice at least, if not for a game.

CREPE LOUNGE!?!?!?!

DO WANT! I've never heard these two words combined and now am VERY interested.

Crepes, stylish leather couches/chairs, tea...It's pretty amazing ^^ I'm partial to the peanut butter and honey, myself. Or the chicken mozzarella.

that sounds very tasty... mmm... almost as good as brains...

Oh god. I have no good cafes or lounges within a 40 minute drive and my job sucks >_< So jealous that you get to intern for Paizo. Enjoy it and remember to keep an eye out for traps!

Also jealous that your group keeps you busy. Hell I can hardly scrape together enough players with free time to do even a short campaign (crosses fingers and prays for my summer campaign).

Savannah brought cookies and muffins today (and brought cookies last week), so I approve of the tall gnome we have on our team.

Sounds like you've already trained the new intern well if she's bringing cookies and muffins already. Me, I'm jealous :)

I'm pretty sure that's self-training. Clever self-training.

So the newbie is encroaching upon Lilith's territory as the Queen of Baked Goods?

I predict blood.


Blood cookies?

There are crepes at the Farmer's Market right now, Wes! Gotta catch 'em all!

What?!?!?! Time to get you down to Games & Gizmos on a Friday night or Saturday. Four to five tables of PFS goodness each week.

I did my PhD work in Carbondale. I tought a few classes, left there about a year ago. Pretty familiar with Castle Perilous. I met my game group from there through the bulletin board. One of my best groups, and I have a pretty long history of gaming.

You don't have one of those in Redmond? Geez, we even have one out here in the boondocks in North Bend. :)

Sounds like I might have to show you where the one in North Bend is. It is only a 35 minute drive from the office. One way. But, hey, that is MUCH closer than Illinois!

Unless you can bend time and space, then it is the same distance. :)

If anybody is remotely interested in the crepes in North Bend, check out the Euro Cafe. Now you are in the know Wes!

Oh, and in case you are interested, here are some MORE crepe restaurants in the Seattle area. See, I care about you guys! :)

And it has nothing to do with you not wanting your employees making unannounced errands to Illinois on workdays, right?


Welcome, Savannah!

Ah, Bend. Former home of the Micro Cornucopia SOG. Beautiful place!

Great! You post a picture and now I want to try these things!

I have never had crepes. I live in Almost Heaven West Vir-by-God-ginia. Well, now I know. Must find these.

I can't believe Ricky Bobby wouldn't say he liked crepes, they look good.

What I want to know is why we never see Savannah anywere else on the boards


Manacles for interns don't have long enough chain for them to reach the rest of the boards?

that or they get eaten by cave raptors shortly after these blog posts

Oh! You're serious! I thought this was an instance of "everything is better in North Bend." :P

Now that sounds like a field trip for this weekend!

I also have noted this.

(Not, of course, that it matters - Connecticut is a hell of a drive from Seattle :)

I confess, until I started working here I didn't have a presence on the sight at all, and it's a hard habit to break. I'll have to try and fix that. Also, I don't think they'll unleash the raptors until after PaizoCon. Maybe. I hope...

Fortunately for you I don't think they know how to use doors yet.

...I don't think so at any rate...Who knows what eldritch forces are at work beyond the Great Door?

No no, doors completely stump us. You're totally safe. Relax. No danger at all. {continues reading Paizo's Advanced Racial Cookbook}

Mmmm... crepes were delicious.

Delicious enough to go back and get more later in the week, even!!!


What is that my minion? A new intern?

Bathe her, and bring her to me. MUAHAHAHAHAHAhahahahahahahaha

Absolutely! Though, that place right down the street was pretty good. Totally lacking in decor, but the crepes were good. :)


Is that Violet from the Incredibles? Or Roxy from Gen 13?

Oops, didn't mean to blow your cover!

We look forward to your presence at a PFS night at Games and Gizmos. (I think we're up to 6-7 tables a week now between Friday (4-5 tables) and saturdays (2-3 tables))

Congratulations again, Zana! (Fun fact for you forum-goers. Savannah also goes by Zana. How do I know? I'll let her explain that, if she likes.)

No giving away my secret identity now! But yes, Kyle is from my gaming group back home, the one that is set to tackle my unholy conglomeration of a homebrew again next fall.

I can't wait. I miss that game.
