Event of the Day: Pathfinder Society Events

Pathfinder Society

Do you still wish you had more of the world of 3.5 for role play?  Does your dragon still have a few hit points left?  Then Pathfinder might be just right for you!

Pathfinder, made by Paizo, Inc., is based off one of the world’s most popular role play systems 3.5.  It can be ran as home campaigns, adventure paths that can be purchased at your local game store, or games through Pathfinder Society Organized play.

Pathfinder Society Organized play is Paizo’s sanctioned version of the game.  It can be ran privately in your house, at local game stores, public locations, and at game conventions.  The games can either be in the form of shorter scenarios, all day modules, or even some adventure paths made to last several weeks or even months.  A character’s information is recorded and carries over, so you can bring the same character to any society organized event and continue to play him.  Society scenarios are setup as a form of the society needing help, posting word about this, and the players coming to the aid for the session.  With that, players aren’t required to attend a series of scenarios as they don’t usually relate to one another, which works well for people with busy schedules.

At M.A.G.E. Con South 31, there are currently 25 scheduled tables of Pathfinder Society with product support and character creation assistance available.  Players can find more about the scenarios played by visiting the scheduled events on this website, as well feel free to learn more about Pathfinder at www.paizo.com

Featured Event – Firefly the Board Game

firefly

Firefly the Game from Gale Force Nine will be hosted by Dave Glewwe three different times during the convention and will be run with it’s expansions.

Firefly is based on the TV series of the same name.  It also had a sequel that was a movie, called Serenity.  The basic premise of the board game is the same as the TV series.  You’re managing your Firefly class ship and crew trying to make ends made in a harsh universe.  Along the way you’ll pick up plenty of jobs, missions, and lots of backstabbing and danger.  There are a lot of choices to be made.

This game was the surprise hit of last Gen Con and drew a lot of buzz.  If you haven’t gotten a chance, sign-up for it before it fills up.  With 3 times to choose from, you should be able to find one that suits your fancy.  It is an extremely well produced game that immerses you in a dark and dangerous universe.  If you want to learn to play before the Con, watch the video below:
