Happy Birthday!

January 18, 2017 under Announcements, Events

This weekend is our Fifth Anniversary celebration, and you are all invited. There’s no entry fee, so come enjoy a full day of Pathfinder.There will be fun, food and prizes! Yes, prizes.  We have confirmed that there will be miniatures, painted and unpainted. There will be two codes worth a library of official Pathfinder .pdf files. There will be player boons that you only get at conventions. We only ask that you bring something to help out.  Bring snacks or a dish to share, bring money to donate for the site (or pizza) bring something hobby related for the prize table. If you can’t do any of that, bring yourself.  None of this happens with out people to play or GM. Follow the link here for the time and location and details.

If you need a ride, there are already people looking to carpool in the Facebook group. Check there or leave a comment here.  No Pathfinder gets left behind, and it won’t even cost you 5 prestige.

We have some updates on the events though. If you want to guarantee your spot, you need to reserve, or be ready to sit wherever you can with no guarantees.

  1. We have added another table of Gallows of Madness for levels 1-3 in place of Dustpawn.  Sign up fast.
  2. We have 2 openings for House on Hook Street for levels 5-7
  3. We have 4 spots left for Feast of Ravenmoor for levels 2-4. This is a great module for newer players with investigation, combat and a nice bit of world background.
  4. In the event that The Ruby Phoenix tournament doesn’t happen, we will replace it with something lower level.  If you want to play levels 10-12, sign up now.

It’s going to be a great time. This is my favorite event of the year, so come out and make it awesome!

Some Warhorn Real-Talk

January 17, 2017 under Announcements, Site News, The Rifleman

Salutations fellow Pathfinders!

January is proving to be very active for our Charleston lodge, and as many of you are hopefully aware, we have adopted Warhorn to assist with scheduling logistics.

Warhorn is a free, web-based event management tool geared towards gamers. It allows organizers (like your Venture Officers) to advertise events well ahead of time, and allows players (like yourself) to reserve a seat well ahead of the event. This data helps us plan for the upcoming game-day and for future sessions.

This most recent Sunday, we had two tables booked on Warhorn and a third with several slots filled. We were able to predict the need for a fourth table and were able to plan accordingly. We also know the demand for certain scenarios and can make sure they appear on our schedules again in the future.

If you are using Warhorn, we will do everything within our power to ensure that experience you signed up for is the experience you receive. If you aren’t using Warhorn, we can’t make any guarantees (especially brand new content). If you have a habit of showing up “fashionably late” (our official start time is 1:00pm), you may find your reserved seat forfeit for the benefit of the group.

The Rifleman schedule (through the end of March) on Warhorn is available here. If you have any questions as to how Warhorn works, please ask a Venture Officer for more details.

PFS in Huntington: Back on Schedule!

January 7, 2017 under Events, Hometown Hobbies, Roleplay

Join us January 7th at 2:00 PM at Hussons Pizza next to Marshall in Huntington for #6–06: Hall of the Flesh Eaters.  This is for levels 1-5.

Shrouded in thick fog, the shifting Gloomspires north of the Shackles have long frustrated explorers. However, a recent discovery by the Pathfinder Society has revealed a brief opportunity to navigate the columns safely and search for the lost treasure of the legendary pirate Sevenfingers. The only problem is that the Pathfinders are not the only visitors to the Gloomspires.

1/1/2017 – Happy New Year!

December 31, 2016 under Uncategorized

Welcome, Pathfinders, to the year 4717!  We’ll be ringing in the new year with a fantastic set of scenarios, this Sunday at 1 PM at the Rifleman:

Tier 1-5:

Les James will be taking the party to the heart of revolution-torn Galt in #8-06: Reaping What We Sow, where the Pathfinders must try to rekindle old alliances.  Old allies often come with old enemies, though.  Remember, Pathfinders, keep your head on straight if you want to survive this one!

Tier 1-5 (Fully pre-registered):

I will be running #8-08: Tyranny of the Winds Pt. 1: The Sandstorm Prophecy, the first in a new series of adventures for levels 1-5.  A thief has broken into the Sandswept Hall, Osirion’s Pathfinder lodge, and it’s up to the party to track down the culprit.  That may prove easier said than done, as the trail leads through the lands of some of Osirion’s strangest inhabitants.

Tier 7-11:

Rich Gay will be running #2-16: The Flesh Collector.  A copy of a priceless manuscript has gone missing from Almas, but the Society has tracked down a copy at a little-known monastery.  Unfortunately, this monastery lies on the border between wizard-controlled Nex and undead-controlled Geb, which have been at war for centuries.  How could a monastery possibly survive that war, and why do they have this manuscript?

It’s an Anniversary Extravaganza!

December 13, 2016 under Announcements, Events

These guys want to come. Make sure you register first!

What A Ride!

In 2011, on the heels of a successful Charcon, a group of interested parties gathered and put together a plan.  The date: January 15, 2012 The Plan: The first open Pathfinder Society game at the Rifleman.  The result: Massive Success! Each year since we have gathered together to celebrate the new friends we have made, the fun we have had, and we do it the best way we know how. Lots of Pathfinder! We are renting a facility for a whole day and we’re going to play and eat and have prizes and it will be a AWESOME! Make sure January 21, 2017 is available.

This isn’t just any Pathfinder though. We’re going to be playing the kinds of long form content that we can’t run at our in store events. Full length modules and adventure path volumes. The kinds of stuff that your PFS characters usually never see.  They are worth a whole level or more, so your characters will see a nice jump too. We’re starting with six tables for a range of levels. The specifics will be posted here and on Facebook. Registration will be on Warhorn. It will be necessary to register, as level ranges and slots may be limited. Read the event list too, you’ll find a bit of experimental stuff.

What does this cost? Nothing. We do ask that you donate what you can to help pay for site. Bring food, snacks and drinks, or a little extra money to help buy pizza.  There will also be prizes to give away. If you have any unused convention boons, or something that you think people would like bring it in. If you can’t contribute any other way, run a game, or help with cleanup. The most important thing to bring however is you. This is a celebration of everyone in our lodge, and if you can read this you are invited. Bring someone new as well; we will have something for everyone.

We will be using the same amazing site we had last year. It’s a 58′ x 64′ space for gaming. GM’s, we will have two screens that we can display maps and such on. They can be linked to mirror each other or display different images. There are laptops that can be connected to them if you want to just bring their files on flash drives and we have a printer/scanner/copier. If someone wants to use their own computers the projectors accept VGA and HDMI inputs. We will have the run of a kitchen/eating area as well.

And now, the details:

Schedule:

  • 9:00 AM: Site opens
  • 10:00 AM: Gaming begins!
  • 5:00 PM Break for dinner and raffle
  • Sometime late: Cleanup and go home

Location:

Running Right Leadership Academy
300 Running Right Way,
Julian, WV 25529

We will be dropping the wall and using two of these rooms.

We will be dropping the wall and using two of these rooms.
