For all those attending PaizoCon 2011.....

Our Butterfrog is once again hauling our Wayfinders north to Bellevue, and our Wayfinder funds are depleted!! If you are at PaizoCon, and enjoy your copy of Wayfinder, please consider a small donation. You don't have to, but even a buck would help us to cover these last unforeseen costs of getting your copy to PaizoCon.

BACKGROUND:

For the past two PaizoCons, Paizo Fans United has produced a PaizoCon edition of Wayfinder, the Pathfinder 'zine by fans, for fans. What is special is that it is an actual PRINTED issue, and it is provided for free to all attendees.

But, printing isn't cheap. In order to print copies, we ask for donations. 3PP companies donate money for advertising space in Wayfinder. Paizo fans donate to support the 'zine and to get a physical copy for themselves. Paizo has been very supportive in donating $1 for every PaizoCon glass sold.

This year, we have produced Wayfinder #5. To scale up with PaizoCon, we have also printed more physical copies than ever before....500 copies. Luckily we had raised enough funds to meet all these costs.

Or so we thought.

The copies have been printed and assembled. Now, to just get them from Mexico to PaizoCon....

That's where we need your help.

In the past two years, Hugo (aka Butterfrog) has taken it upon himself (literally) to haul our copies in his own luggage, and check his bags to get the Wayfinders to us. He has even enrolled the help of Carlos! This has worked, but checked bag fees have gone up, and the weight limits are less (with steeper fees, too). And we have spent all our funds on the bigger print run.

So, as you page through your copy at PaizoCon, think about Hugo and Carlos lugging their suitcases full of Wayfinders. If you can spare a buck or two, find Hugo or myself. We will be VERY appreciative!

I'd ask for open donations, but unfortunately we can't really spare any more physical copies....every one of those 500 is spoken for, either by a PaizoCon attendee, or an advertiser, contributor, or donor.

Ah, the problems with being successful...

I'd be more than happy to help, since I haven't contributed financially to this year's Wayfinder yet. Let me know how, and I'll fire some money your way.

With the Wayfinder #5 fan magazine theme and Butterfrog reference, it seemed strangely appropriate to post *this youtube link*...
