Silver Crusade 5/5

Hi everybody!

The Omaha Pathfinder Society team is throwing ourselves a con! Our con, Boys and Girls Con 2017, starts just one month from today and will run from February 16th to the 19th.

We are featuring all levels of play from levels one all the way up to level 13! We have one table of Eyes of the Ten already scheduled and are prepared to schedule another if the demand is there.

Since we are renting a place of our own we are going to be taking donations to help cover the costs of operations, we are requesting a minimum donation of $25. Once we have raised enough to pay for the con, we are going to be donating everything else raised to the Boys and Girls Club of the Midlands, which will be matched by myself and another party.

Here is the website for Boys and Girls Con 2017, along with the link for donations for the con!

And here is the Warhorn page for Boys and Girls Con 2017!

On behalf of the Omaha Pathfinder Society, thank you for your support and time. I hope to see you at the convention!

Will be coming up from KC - I actually am in Omaha quite a bit for work, though not as much on the weekends. I've gotten to Sparta Games once for a session but that's about it. Can help with the GM load if you need it - am running both Tyranny of Winds and Cindersworn Pact down here - but figured I should ask before signing up on Warhorn. :-D

Feel free to sign up! And thanks for the help!

Note from the VC: If you're interested in running a scenario you do not own, please contact her asap so she can gift the scenario to you.

Yes, and the apartment full of food that I would otherwise never eat but am tempted to now because it's "hands off the convention food" will attest to the con being sixteen days out.

Mmm, double post action -

Con support confirmed.
I just paid the back "half" of the house rental fee.
All we need to do to prep is read scenarios, get some tablecloths, figure out parking, buy more food, and print ALL THE THINGS!

Hopefully this is a memorable -good- convention. Y'all should stop on by!

I am looking forward to Mitch running Eyes of the Ten!

Lots of great adventures planned. Check out the links Mitch posted for all the details.

5/5 Venture-Captain, Nebraska—Omaha

If you can't play Eyes of the Ten but want to play high level things, please consider Academy of Secrets. I am sure the person signed up to run the module would love to do so; he does a wonderful job with all those NPC personalities.

Plus, new to our convention scene is a raffle. Since I can't offer all the amenities of a normal convention, I figured I'd offer something that is otherwise something I would be unable to do.

For every $10 contributed (food, drinks, entry, et cetera) I'll put your name in a drawing for a bunch of Pathfinder swag (and, no, it's not my hoard of leftover books and boons from Gen Cons past). When I get all the merch in next week I'll post a hyperlink to a picture of all the goods.

Just over a week left to go!

My -1 has only just made 11 so I can't play Academy of Secrets even though it sounds like a blast.

Silver Crusade 5/5

Six days! Six!

Liberty's Edge 3/5 5/5 *** Venture-Captain, Nebraska—Omaha

Mitch, you forgot to end with "ha ha ha".

Liberty's Edge 3/5 5/5 *** Venture-Captain, Nebraska—Omaha

3 more days! Still have open slots!

Silver Crusade 5/5

Two more days before we kick this shindig off!

5/5 Venture-Captain, Nebraska—Omaha

Finally the rest of our Boys and Girls Con raffle items came in today!

Basically, for every $10 contributed (including food/drink), I'll put your name in a metaphorical had and draw a name at the end of the convention. You do not have to be present to win.

Here are the goodies.

It's all Curse of the Crimson Throne:
Hardcover
Pawns
Q Workshop dice
Medium, Large, Huge Red Bases
Bigger Map
Map Folio
Player's Guide

So since there are still a few seats left, you should definitely come on over, play a game with us, and get your name in the drawing.

Boys and Girls Con 2017 is just a day away! Thank you all for participating in our event.

I know I’ve told a few of you, and it’s been posted online for about a month and a half, but the address is 114 Carter Lake Club, Carter Lake, IA 51510. As the queen of not getting proper directions, I urge you to consult a map or GPS before making the drive. The street names are deceptive. Be cognizant that you turn onto 4th or 5th to get to the house; you do not turn on Carter Lake Club.

For parking

the owner says wrote:
We can fit three vehicles in our driveway. If only parking for a while you can park across the alley otherwise any overflow parking needs to be at the end of the alley on Avenue Q.

I will put up signs on Friday, maybe Thursday. If you can carpool, I recommend it. Next year we will be in a place with better parking, I promise. If you have any questions, please email me or call me (four02.four03.three453).

Attached is a picture of the home and a couple street maps so you get a general idea of the area.

Thank you and I look forward to seeing you all this weekend!

Sometimes redundancy is good

Won't be there myself until Friday but my better half will be there with a brand-new bard to send to Kassen.

It was so successful I could cry.

I've some number crunching to do before I make some official statements.

Liberty's Edge 3/5 5/5 *** Venture-Captain, Nebraska—Omaha

Agreed 100%!! Had a great time all weekend playing through the Eyes of Ten Seeker adventure line.

Thank you to the Omaha VO staff for their hard work.

Rachel did an awesome job organizing this con!

Awesome! That is great to hear!

I want to say I had a lot of fun at this con. I think by the end of the con, we were all a little too tired to say much. But this was seriously a very fun way to spend a weekend.

Thank you, Rachel and the Omaha Venture Officer team for putting this together. I even forgive Mitch for always being super mean to me all the time. ;)

I'm still waiting to see that the deposit comes through as a refund before I announce any actual "final numbers" but it's... pretty high.

$1225 in contributions. It looks like convention expenses are somewhere between $700 and $1000 (again, that $300 deposit). That leaves some amount between $225 and $525 (plus whatever amount is matched) to the Boys and Girls Club of the Midlands.

I haven't quite figured out how I'll be doing a drawing. I know Jeff and Mitch said their amounts don't count ('cause it would look real bad if I drew one of them, ha ha), but that still leaves me with quite a few names. I've not forgotten, I promise.

You're welcome, and thank you (and Jacob) for helping us out, too! Hey, for every time Mitch is mean to you, I kill off one of his race boon characters. /joke

Dude, I drew your name out of a hat for the Curse of the Crimson Throne set!
