It was Christmas time at the Brockleys,
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.
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.
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.
