Pathfinder: Origins—Not Just a Comic Book Anymore!

Tuesday, June 14, 2016

Short blog today, because this week brings the Origins Game Fair to fabulous Columbus, Ohio. It's a 5-day show, and if you're in the region, I highly recommend checking it out. Good food, great games, and a wide range of stuff to entertain every type of gamer. In the last few years, the board and card game area has gotten bigger and better, and the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game is part of that growth.

Organized Play Coordinator Tonya Woldridge will be on the scene, helping Venture-Captain Mike McNerney run many, many tables of Pathfinder Society. The Roleplaying Guild offerings will be packing the Franklin rooms at the Hyatt end of the convention center as usual, and Adventure Card Guild play will be moving from the demo hall to the area right at the end of the breezeway near the Franklin rooms. Tonya hopes to have some iconic Pathfinder character art there to guide your way, but if you head for Franklin you'll be hard-pressed to miss the ACG area.

In that ACG area we'll have Season of the Runelords running, as well as demos of October's Mummy's Mask Base Set. The area will be open for most of the day, with 5 slots Wednesday through Saturday (check the program book for times) and 2-3 slots on Sunday. Tonya also snuck a few as-yet-unreleased class decks into her luggage; those of you who can keep quiet might get to play with them.

Double Art Spoiler!

Since I've got less to say this week, you get more pretty pictures!

Do I even want to know why the frog is wearing a wedding veil?

Small point, it seems we'll be in the Delaware Hall right next door to the Franklin. Something about construction.

See ya'll there tomorrow.

It took me way too long to get the title... Brilliant.

It gets slightly more disturbing when you realize that Reta Bigbad *also* has a wedding veil. Maybe she went renegade and read a book, possibly containing Brothers Grimm's 'The Frog Prince'.

Or maybe, when you look at any goblin's face at all, the implications are much more scarier...

Nothing scary here.
Long time ago, a well known witch just turned her boyfriend into a toad.
Just business as usual in a goblin life.

Goblins don't live in a cave
Our lives long and whining road
Meet the witch, miss the save
In the end you kiss a toad

So, her boyfriend just happened to be wearing a wedding veil (and nothing else) at the time of transformation, and the veil changed sizes to accommodate?

UPDATE: Apparently due to construction, ACG is now in the vicinity of the Delaware room. I will ask the community team to update the blog.

FYI, designer Paul Peterson and I are here at Origins too! Come find me in the Big Bar on 2. I'm the one who looks like me.


Dang missed you guys, though I was there. If I had read the blog enough I definitely would've shown up to demo mummy's mask! Kinda mad I missed it now!
