Hey, Ladies!

LADIES:
Do you want to know more about what goes on behind the Pathfinder Society GM screen?
Do you love playing but you’re intimidated by running a table?
Or are you just sick & tired of everybody telling you it’s your turn to GM for PFS?

Well, here’s your day!

Kingwood Tabletop Gaming is hosting a SPECIAL event just for women gamers!

GM101 for GIRLS

Saturday, November 8th – 10:00am – Ettin Games in Humble

LEARN ABOUT:
Pathfinder Society Play
Preparing an Pathfinder Society Adventure
Utilizing Available Materials
Basic Game Mechanics
Mediating Player Concerns

Join us for a morning of fun & camaraderie!

Fun Giveaways

Breakfast Will Be Served

http://www.meetup.com/Kingwood-Tabletop-G…/events/211843492/

I should also point out two things: THE WHOLE POINT is to help the newbie ladies. If you feel like you dont have enough expertise with PFS to attend, youre missing the point. Shelley will be the first to admit she has knowledge gaps too – this is to give each other support and to help build community.

Secondly, while Dave and I are promoting it, this is Shelley’s baby. Her idea, she came to me with scheduling, she’s setting the curriculum. I’ll be in the building, but I’m not interfering (unless she calls me to) and I’m keeping dudes away. No dudes snaking breakfast, and no dudes butting in with “helpful suggestions” – including me.

FoodMachine!

FoodMachine sign-ups for Pathfinder Society are now LIVE athttps://warhorn.net/events/houston-pfs/schedule/2014/11/15

FoodMachine is a game day benefiting Houston Food Bank on November 15th at the M.D. Anderson Library at University of Houston. We’ll have the four latest Year of the Sky Key scenarios, the Silverhex Quests, and Emerald Spire Superdungeon – along with some stuff that was requested. There is an opportunity to GM as well.

There will be Chik-Fil-A on hand in the kitchen area immediately next to our room. There’s other food on campus that’s a quick walk from where we are. I’ll be running the one-hour quests, but at times those aren’t going, I’m happy to make food runs as well.

Admission is free, but parking is not (unless you like walking, but I can’t figure out where the free parking is, so I can’t tell you if that’s a recommended idea or not). It’ll be between $3-$10, depending on where you park and what kind of deal FoodMachine is able to negotiate. Donations to Houston Food Bank are greatly encouraged – as that’s the whole point of the game day. Go sign up right now.

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.
