Six Freaking Years! Time for an Anniversary Extravaganza!

December 21, 2017 under Announcements, Events

Six Freaking Years! It’s time to celebrate!

The WV Pathfinder (and Starfinder) Society started six years ago. I had arranged Pathfinder Society games with a small group of friends at a house in St. Albans over the summer.  We got ambitious and ran some games at Charcon that October. Even at the last minute, it was wildly successful and those involved met in late 2011 to discuss weekly games.  The first game at the Rifleman in South Charleston happened in early January 2012. Little did I realize how that meeting would change my life.

The group that we have built together is special. We have found friends which will last our lifetimes. We have grown to become leaders. We have learned new skills and artistic pursuits. We have made a real difference, helping support our friends through hard times. All of this and more built around a game of pretend played with toy figures and funny dice.  It’s enough to make me believe in magic.

It’s time for an Anniversary Extravaganza!

To celebrate we are going to do what we do best and play a bunch of Pathfinder! On January 13th, 2018 we are renting a site where we can come together and play all day and evening. We will be offering the kind of long form content that we can’t play easily at the store: Modules, Adventure Path volumes, story arcs and the like.  We will have signups on Warhorn to reserve your seat.  There will also be prizes! Convention boons, miniatures and more!

There are no fees to participate. Like all our events, all you have to do is show up.  Your presence is what makes this a success.

We do ask that if you are able, please contribute something to the group. If you can spare some money, we will be accepting donations to pay for the site and pizza. If you can bring snacks, dessert, drinks or other food please do.  If you have something that would make a good prize, please bring it.  We especially like it if you can share your extra convention boons with those who can’t make conventions easily.

I’m excited for another year of awesome. I can’t wait to see how we’re gonna bring it next year!

http://static2.paizo.com/image/product/catalog/PZOP/PZOPSS0805E.jpgJoin us April 22nd at 2:00 PM at Hussons Pizza next to Marshall in Huntington for #8-05: Ungrounded but Unbroken.  This is for levels 1-5.

The Peerless Empire of shaitan genies has warred with their fiery counterparts for centuries, and thinly stretched resources leave the shaitans in need of additional aid. They have founded a new state-sanctioned mercenary company known as the Ungrounded, which draws upon free agents from across the multiverse. One of the Society’s few friends on the Plane of Earth has recommended at least a handful of Pathfinders join the Ungrounded, knowing that even a few months’ service could dramatically enhance the Society’s reputation (and fill those agents’ pockets) in this distant realm. The PCs travel to the magnificent Opaline Vault as the Society’s first envoys, but in doing so they must survive the otherworldly threats that lurk in both this strange environment and within their own ranks.

Content in “Ungrounded but Unbroken” also contributes directly to the ongoing storyline of the Sovereign Court faction.

Weeks have passed since Venture-Captain Nieford Sharrowsmith departed for the Bandu Hills, and having not heard from him since but learned of an Aspis Consortium expedition bound for the same destination, the Society and local allies have grown worried for the aging explorer’s safety. As the PCs travel south on Sharrowsmith’s trail, they must track the venture-captain to the ruins he sought while also dealing with the aftermath of his actions.

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!

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.
