Pathfinder Society of West Virginia http://wvgeo.com Plundering, no I mean researching the secrets of Golarion for fun and profit. Thu, 21 Dec 2017 13:45:33 +0000 en-US hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.9.8 Six Freaking Years! Time for an Anniversary Extravaganza! http://wvgeo.com/six-freaking-years-time-for-an-anniversary-extravaganza/ Thu, 21 Dec 2017 13:27:38 +0000 http://wvgeo.com/?p=2049 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!
