Dear One and All,

'What?!' you might say. 'Why is there a post about PaizoCon Oz in 2017?' 'What does the "Oz" stand for?' 'Why do I care about 2017 when I'm just treading water, trying to get through 2016 without any more GoT or Stranger Things episodes to watch?'

Well, my media-addicted friends, I have answers for you.

PaizoCon Oz is the official Paizo convention of the Australasian branch of your Pathfinder brethren. We run games not just in Australia, but in Singapore, Vanuatu, Fiji, and New Zealand. Heck, I even tried to run a game once on the Cook Islands, though I basically wound up running through the Beginner's Box with my wife (she's a sport).

I digress. New Zealand will be the site of PaizoCon Oz 2017, running from October 13-15 in lovely Matamata on the North Island.

'Why should I care?' you may wonder. 'Why did I continue to read this far down?'

Matamata is the home of Hobbiton, my geeky friends. Yes, THAT Hobbiton. The Shire. Bilbo and Frodo's home village. And it is REAL. It is the movie set featured in all six of the Lord of the Rings movies.

And we're going to be gaming there. October 2017. Want more info?

Here!

This is a Bucket List Gaming Event. Included in the registration is a tour of the Hobbiton Movie Set. The Pathfinder Society Special event on Saturday night, October 14, will be headquartered at the Green Dragon Inn. Your inner fanboy will never forget this one Con to skew them all.

Drop us an email at paizoconoz2017@gmail.com. Glen and I will happily answer any of your emails. We made this event especially family-friendly, so Gamer Widows and Family are doubly invited.

Grab a Great Eagle or a Smaug; hitch a ride on the back of Gollum or Sméagol. Just get yourself to Hobbiton in New Zealand October 13-15 for the gaming event of the Fourth Age.

Cool. We went to hobbiton in 2014. It was a great spot.

Gaming in the Green Dragon Inn, what could be finer? :)


How does one simple travel to the hobbiton from outside of NZ?

And in keeping with my glorious winning streak, I show once again why INT is not a good dump stat. -_-

I'm fairly skeptical that the financial stars would align enough to make this feasible for me this year, but OH MAN. I'm pretty sure my little nerd heart would explode if I could make it to this.

Is this going to be just a one-off event, or is it more of a see-how-it-goes-then-decide type of thing?

Hi Katina

It's early days yet to decide this. The Green Dragon Inn is half full already.

Paizo staff spoiler:
We have reserved three (3) spots for Paizo staff if that makes any difference :-) We'd love to see as many of you as possible over in Hobbiton!

Here's that big announcement!!!!

Benjamin Loomes, creator of Syrinscape and accomplished composer, is attending PaizoCon Oz 2017, October 13-15 in Matamata, New Zealand!

Hot off the press from Gen Con, Benjamin brings lovingly crafted audio mixes to DJ the two Pathfinder Society Specials PFS 8-99: The Solstice Star and PFS 9-00: Assault on Absalom. Enjoy the Special at the Green Dragon Inn, Hobbiton, with a movie-like soundtrack - an audio experience not to be missed!

Syrinscape is a revolutionary sound design app that adds evocative ambient background sound and a movie-like soundtrack to your tabletop gaming experience. Download to try for free from https://syrinscape.com/download/

PS to hear what Syrinscape did for the Specials last year, listen to "PFS Special #8" in the Syrinscape Fantasy Player. The "pg6" OneShot is a really good example.

There are now 3 seats left at Hobbiton for PaizoConOz 2017. Are YOU going to be there?
