There was plenty to be blown away by at Gen Con this year, but easily what impressed me most were the hundreds of Pathfinder Society volunteers and thousands of Pathfinder Society players. These gamers filled the convention center’s MASSIVE Sagamore Ballroom nearly 24 hours a day, not just playing individual scenarios, but participating in two MASSIVE Pathfinder Society Specials, teaching new players, running games for kids, and raising over $3,000 for charity. During Gen Con Pathfinder Society had:
Total tables - 1,476  Total seated players - 8,736  Total quest tables (1-hour games) - 211  Total seated quest players - 842  Total new PFS numbers issued - 1,758
(More about this on the Paizo Blog)
I was utterly amazed at the fervor of these players and the dedication of all the great PFS venture officers and volunteers. I never participated in the RPGA or other organized play games coming up, so I never really understood the wide-eyed nostalgia many gamers and fellow creators shared when they related tales of gaming with strangers and in big events at giant conventions. Personally, I found the idea of gaming with people I didn’t know terrifying—and still do to some degree.
After this weekend, though, I think I got a glimpse of what makes these organized play events so incredibly special, of the community and passion these games foster, and of the amazing things gamers can do (on and off the play mat) when they come together to share the games they love. I saw a room packed with gamers of the full spectrum of genders, races, and sexualities (tons of “Gaymer” badges); I saw a 9-year-old rocking behind a GM screen as she massacred players several times her age; I saw dozens of kids learning and loving RPGs for the first time; I saw the leaders of a room packed with over a thousand players create a complex hand signal language to coordinate hundreds of tables participating in one gigantic Pathfinder game; and I was awed by a cadre of gamer-heroes who volunteered huge swaths of their vacations (sometimes 12-hour days or longer) to make these experiences possible. All of this was awesome beyond words.
I’ve really got new respect for Pathfinder Society after this year. I strongly suggest you all take a look and see what it’s all about if you’re interested in the Pathfinder RPG, if you’re looking for new players or a new game to get into, or if you just want to reach out to the other gamers in your area. You can learn all about the Pathfinder Society right here.
But again, COUNTLESS THANKS to all the Pathfinder Society volunteers, venture officers, and players for making this Gen Con the most amazing ever, as well as to Campaign Coordinator Mike Brock and PFS Developer Extraordinaire John Compton for all their super-human work, and to all the the Pathfinder players out there for together creating something truly special.

So proud to have been part of this with one of my best buds

Some amazing Dungeons & Dragons miniatures coming soon from Wizkids.

:O I HAVE A MIGHTY NEED

Been looking forward to these minis. They look great, can’t wait to see them at Gencon.

Um… you’ve just paid the barkeep enough for several thousand mugs of ale.
our GM, explaining that GP and CP are not the same thing (via outofcontextdnd)
He who fights with monsters should be careful he doesn’t become a monster himself. Unless that makes him more effective at fighting monsters. Like he becomes a badass werewolf who knows how to use a sword and has magic armor. That’d be so rad.
