Role Playing Games

We're happy to have the Pathfinder Society at the con this year! This is a little bit about what they're gonna be running on Saturday.
Pathfinder Society - Year of the Storm
The grand Taldan Empire once controlled half of Avistan, but during the Even-Tongued Conquest, it could not manage an ongoing war with both its neighbor Qadira and the secessionist rebels in its outer provinces. As Taldor struggled to control its crumbling territories, its monarchs sought scapegoats for its failures, including the righteous war hero Countess Honaria Alcasti. Stripped of its nobility, her family has survived in obscurity for seven hundred years. However, her descendant Remaio has identified evidence that might redeem the Alcasti name and his ancestor’s honor. Can you help exonerate her name and bring glory to Taldor once more? "Honor’s Echo" is an introduction to Pathfinder Society Organized Play and includes six, 1-hour adventures (utilizing the Pathfinder Role Playing Game) that take the PCs from the verdant wilds of Andoran to the arid wastes of Qadira to the cultural heart of Taldor itself. Experience the adventures in any order to create a unique story. Each player will have a wide selection of pre-generated characters to choose from and all materials will be provided. This will be an ongoing game session throughout the convention with short breaks; feel free to come and go between each adventure.
Hourly sessions from 9 am to 9 pm.

Schedule coming soon
