The wyrd sisters have so far raised over £10,000 for various charities - that's entirely because gamers (we can't say Pathfinders anymore now we run an open gaming event as well as the PFS ones) are wonderful people. Am very proud of our gaming community in the UK

It was Christmas time at the Brockleys,
And the gaming table was busy
Goblins were raiding the village
And the players were all in a tizzy
The ZonZon doll had gone missing
The prisms and crystals were smashed
With goblins filling the temple
Even Shelyn would say it was trashed
Ian Hamly was channelling Kyra
And begging them all to be still
But Jack was down to be Valros
His warcry was “Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill!”
Macca rolled a d20
Saying, “Sonny, you just had to ask”
But the gods of dice were not with him
They seldom are for poor Harsk
The axes and swords went a whirling
The goblin songs rang out clear
Forget your tinsel and turkey
This is OUR kind of good cheer
By the time the first round had ended
Brock was needing a drink
The players were badly out numbered
And beer always helped him to think
Alan had Ezren run over
With hands burning bright as a flame
The goblins thought this was pretty
And added some flare to the game
Russ told him to keep them distracted
While Merisel sneaked round the back
And while they stood ‘thralled by the light show
She got in a quick sneak attack
“I’ve got it ” yelled Brock, glass now empty
“We hit them, then hit them some more,
Kyra can keep us from falling,
just stand back there and keep score”
Our heroes went in weapons blazing
And the goblins fell thick and fast
The total were soon in the hundreds
With Harsk inevitably last
The Crystalhue party was rescued
The Shelynites shared their good cheer
Happy Holidays to all Pathfinders
And good wishes for the new year.

First time posting in this forum, but as a bi poly person now is not the time to stay silent. I am have so much sympathy for those of you in the US just now. The Brexit vote was horrifying but that pales to almost insignificance compared to Trump. I'm trying to hang on to the thought that it is better to know just how big the divide is than not but the amount of work ahead before any of us will really see a difference is staggering. But every step we make is a step in the right direction.

Massive thank yous to the wonderful players who came to the most recent 3XP.

As well as enjoying many excellent games of Pathfinder, including the Sunday morning special of The Sky Key Solution we were able to raise a fantastic £1293.27 for charity.

I have just sent £500 off to TOFS a charity for children born with problems in their airway/oesophagus which makes it impossible for them to feed, and another £500 to SANE the mental health charity. The remainder has gone to The Red Cross to help with their humanitarian work.

For such a small convention (only 58 people including children) that's an incredible show of generousity. Pathfinders are awesome!

Thank you to everyone who came along, especially our team of GMS who did a marvellous job as always.

Hi folks

I'm sure you'll already be familiar with Cards Against Humanity - the party game for horrible people (if not, it's free online so if you aren't easily offended go take a look)

Anyway - I'm currently putting together a PFS inspired version of Cards Against Humanity to bring a bit of a fun to the Friday night pre-con gathering at 3XP next week.

If anyone would like to contribute an extra card idea or two I'll be happy to share the results afterwards.

Ta muchly!

Carol

Inspired by the fun time we had at Paizocon UK, a couple of us thought it would be fun to organise another convention where we could get together and play lots of PFS.

Crispycon is now well into the planning stages and we're looking for ideas to make it bigger and better - if you have any ideas for things you would like to see at conventions we'd love to hear from you.

We're also really interested in advertising ideas - especially if they aren't going to cost us lots of money.

Please look at our website

Thanks :)

Just want to say thanks to everyone involved with Paizocon Uk - I had a wonderful weekend and have not had so much fun at a convention in years. This was my first Paizocon but it definitely won't be my last. You guys rock!
