Adventure Paths in Humble

Last time I polled the Kingwood players, they told me they wanted adventure paths – specifically, that they wanted Rise of the Runelords.

So I’m seeing if there’s a way to make this work, providing those that asked are willing to put the majority of work in. The Rise of the Runelords adventure path and Shattered Star adventure paths are now on the schedule. These only happen if GMs are willing to step up to BOTH run AND acquire the products. These are products that our friends at Ettin sell. We won’t be using pirated copies. I’ll go a step further and encourage purchasing from them, since they’ve been good to us – yes, Amazon is cheaper – but they’re not letting us use tables twice a month.

I won’t be running these, but I will be providing “between sanctioned material” information will be posted for the players. Its actually a cool story (well, Rise is, I haven’t seen a lot of Star), and I don’t want you guys missing out. I love you little degenerate nerds.

Anyway, you’re being told this now, because sanctioned content for Rise of the Runelords starts at level three, and you want time to build a character if this is something you care about. I’m going to give this some time – and if we don’t get GMs to acquire/run parts of the adventure path – then lesson learned, we’ll cancel, and not bother with another one.

If you’re interested, the relevant links are below. If you want to GM something, let me know.

Burnt Offerings: Rise of the Runelords, part I: http://www.meetup.com/Kingwood-Tabletop-Gaming/events/186471362/

Shards of Sin, Shattered Star, part I:
http://www.meetup.com/Kingwood-Tabletop-Gaming/events/186474102/

The Skinsaw Murders, Rise of the Runelords, part II:
http://www.meetup.com/Kingwood-Tabletop-Gaming/events/186475072/

If this works, we’ll do it again with two more adventure paths. If not, we have plenty of other material to work with.

About The Houston Con…

Guys, I want to address something real quick that I haven’t had the time to talk about in-depth yet.
Yes, I know that people are hesitant on The Houston Con.

…and I get it, I do. Whatever your reason is… I’ve heard it. Here’s my take on all of it:

We’re going to have a good time, despite everything else. Its very much going to be worth your time/money, and not only will you enhance our experience with your presence, but you’re going to wish you were there as well.

Our gaming coordinator put it best: “Pathfinder Society has its shit together”. Hell yeah, we do.

See… everything else people are talking about – I’m not saying they aren’t valid points – but they don’t take away from us. As far as I’m concerned, all we really need for a successful PFS event are three things:

1) tables
2) chairs
3) each other.

It took some work, but we got 1 & 2 taken care of. I need you for #3.

Check out our schedule – its got some really cool stuff on it:

1) scenarios that haven’t been run at a Houston convention before, as we say farewell to Year of the Demon
2) newbie-friendly stuff
3) seeker-tier stuff.
4) A special that’s being run on a Saturday morning – so you holy rollers can join us and still get your church on. Plus, a track of scenarios that lead up to, and launch from, the special for our other time slots.
5) full-day modules
If three+ solid days of PFS is too much for you (you casual), we’ll also have Warmahordes (and no, Mike – I’m not separating that out), X-Wing, Iron Kindgoms RPG, Steve Jackson Games, Dungeons & Dragons (for those of you that didn’t learn your lesson last edition), and Ettin Games is going to be out with their massive kick-ass board game library again. Yes, I’m an Ettin homer fanboy – but not without good reason.

Plus, a charity that you’ll be glad to be associated with.

You and I? Us, together? We’re awesome. I think you’ll be happy with the gaming segment of Houston Con. You should join us.

https://warhorn.net/events/houstoncon-2014 to sign up for gaming – remember, GM 8 hours and get free admission.

Less than Two Weeks til MAG CON!

If were unable to join us last year for Pathfinder Society at MAG CON last year, you really missed out on something special.  Make sure you’re there this year for what I think is the best bang-for-buck gaming convention around.  Clear your calendar April 12th & 13th and come play with us.
Gaming sign ups are at: https://warhorn.net/events/mag-con-6/ – HURRY!  Tables are filling up!

To pre-register for the convention, go to http://www.magcon.org/

Just like last year, the convention is at the New Caney ISD Annex Building (reminder, it is the sole fundraiser for The Learning Center), located at 21569 U.S. 59, New Caney, Texas 77357
(Northeast Houston Area)

We’ll have scenarios at all levels of play.  That includes “The Confirmation” – the new introduction scenario.  If you haven’t yet played “Year of the Shadow Lodge”, we’ll be running that special on Sunday morning (and if you have, well, the con has plenty of other gaming to offer).  We’ll have FOUR brand-new scenarios.  You’re not going to be bored.  Plus, this year, we have prize support!

Remember folks, we have “the best amenity at any gaming convention, ever” – the mobile food cart.  Concessions brought to your table as we game.

Hope to see you there!
