Janira rushs into Ambrus’ office, excitedly waving a parchment in the air. Her hurried entrance caused enough of a disturbance to rustle the papers lying on his desk. He glances up from the paper in hand, a look of irritation briefly passing over his features.
Laying the parchment onto the stack before him, Ambrus took a deep breath. “What is it this time, Janira?” he asks, trying to keep the exasperation from his voice.
“Great news from Pathfinders to the east! They’re holding a version of our Convocation in their area. With a pool! And beer! And people! Now I just need to convince the Decemvirate that I should attend.” She bounces on the balls of her feet, her uncontainable enthusiasm preventing her from standing still.
“I’m sure they will say yes. Just complete the necessary request paperwork.” He reaches into his right desk drawer and draws out a roll of parchment, looks up at the lively halfling, then sighs and dips his quill into the inkpot on his desk. “How about I help, since you don’t look like settling down to write anytime soon. What are the particulars?”
Together, they completed the paperwork. “Thanks for helping!” Janira leans over and gives Ambrus a quick hug, then hurries to the door. “You’ll file that today, yes? I don’t want to wait too long for an answer!” Before he can reply, she opens the door, finding a large group of Pathfinders waiting outside. The group parts, allowing her to move into the corridor. Ambrus’ chuckles briefly and motions the Pathfinders to enter. A faint “goodbye” drifts back into the room, caught on the breeze, as Janira runns to her next encounter.
We are pleased to announce the launch of PaizoCon Francia under the direction of Regional Venture-Coordinator Benoît Gros. In his words, “After 6 consecutive years, GardenCon evolves into PaizoCon Francia. Come enjoy the only open-air PaizoCon in the beautiful Geneva countryside. Not convinced yet? How about a laidback schedule, local craft beer, and tables played in English or French to fulfill your mid-August gamers needs! Still not convinced? Did we mention there's also a pool?”
PaizoCon Francia will be held at the Route de la Craz, Thônex, Geneva, from August 13th to 16th, 2020. More details will appear as the organizing team passes them to us, including registration information.
Before you go…We have a procedural announcement that we will include in our next monthly update, but that we wanted to announce to our society GMs and organizers before the first week of May.
Feedback from our communities regarding tables for Pathfinder Society (second edition) indicates that 7-player tables aren’t working. So, we are phasing them out. Starting as soon as possible, we ask GMs to move to 6-player tables. We are giving a transition period so that we don’t cause issues for conventions and events already planned. As of June 1st, seven players will not be legal tables. In cases of 7 players, the tables should be split into two. This will make a more balanced experience and works better within the scaling mechanisms of the program.
That’s all for today. Come back next week when we preview the April scenarios and quest. Until then, may you all stay safe and remember to Explore, Report, Cooperate, Wash Hands!
