GAME DETAILS

1:00 pm - 3:00 pm  Pathfinder Intro Session – Adventures in Castle Nikolai

Explore the mysterious Castle Nikolai: a large, seemingly impervious fortress which has, until recently, sat untouched with no apparent entrance.

A hole has recently appeared in its side and people are contracting adventuring parties to unearth its treasures.

1:00 pm - 6:00 pm  Pathfinder Adventure Card Game (Demos Available)

There's adventure to be had on the high seas when a group of press-ganged pirates becomes embroiled in the plots and plunder of the Shackles—an infamous island chain dominated by pirate warlords. But as these new swashbucklers make names for themselves, rival scalawags, enemy navies, legendary sea monsters, and the infamous Hurricane King himself seek to see them walk the plank. Who will survive when there's loot on the line?

The Pathfinder Society Adventure Card Guild is your gateway to fun and adventure! If you enjoy playing the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, and want to play or volunteer in your area, the Adventure Card Guild has just started its inaugural season, Season of the Shackles. Full of pirates, plunder, and the occasional shark, this season is bound to be full of high-seas hijinks!

1:00 pm - 6:00 pm  PFS – Silverhex Quest (Best for new players)

The River Kingdoms is a tumultuous land of bloodthirsty bandits, treasure-laden ruins, and self-proclaimed kings, and for years it has been the subject of study for Ulisha, a curious and capable half-orc explorer. Shortly after performing a heist that enraged the local nobility, she came across a collapsing stone circle and discovered Silverhex, an enchanted sickle used by druids millennia before. She did not have long to admire her find, though, for the nobles had posted a bounty to end her meddling for good.

Unable to deal with her pursuers on her own, she has contacted you. If you can raise enough money, she’s willing to sell Silverhex to you at a steep discount and then pay off her bounty.

The Silverhex Chronicles is a series of six Quests, short adventures that take you to a graveyard in Gralton, a mist-choked forest in Ustalav, a brainwashed village in Razmiran, an ancient crash site in Numeria, and finally to a city of assassins in Daggermark.

1:00 pm - 6:00 pm  PFS – The Wounded Wisp #6-10 (Great for new players)

More than 400 years have transpired since the Pathfinder Society began in a humble tavern that has quietly weathered the centuries without incident. When a routine errand there uncovers a clue left behind by one of the founding Pathfinders, it’s up to the PCs to solve a puzzle whose pieces are scattered across Absalom—and whose prize dates back to the Society’s darkest years.

"The Wounded Wisp" is an evergreen, replayable scenario designed to help introduce players to the history of the Pathfinder Society and Absalom’s greatest sites.

1:00 pm - 6:00 pm  PFS – By Way of Bloodcove #6-09 (Not recommended for new players)

For centuries the city of Bloodcove has controlled access to the invaluable Vanji River, and for nearly as long, the Aspis Consortium has controlled Bloodcove. If the Pathfinder Society is to move the equipment and personnel it needs into the Mwangi Expanse, it needs a reliable means of smuggling resources through this unforgiving settlement operated by its enemies. It’s up to the PCs to establish a backdoor through Bloodcove—all without being caught by Aspis agents.

1:00 pm - 6:00 pm  PFS – Scars of the Third Crusade #5-22 (Good for new players)

The fiery inquisitions that raged through Mendev during the Third Mendevian Crusade may have been damped but never truly extinguished. Fanatics have reignited the witch-hunts in eastern Mendev, and in doing so they have captured and accused allies of the Pathfinder Society. Unless the PCs intercede and put a stop to this mob justice, their allies' deaths will spark a new wave of internecine executions throughout the crusader nation.

Content in “Scars of the Third Crusade” also contributes directly to the ongoing storyline of the Silver Crusade faction

1:00 pm - 6:00 pm  PFS – Mists of Mwangi #0-05 (Good for new players)

Pathfinder Lugizar Trantos recently returned from the Mwangi Expanse with haunted eyes and a pack full of strange idols. Absalom's famed Blakros Museum purchased his pieces and Lugizar vanished. The strange monkey idols he pulled from the misty jungles of Mwangi carry with them a fell curse, and now their power has laid claim to the museum. Can the Pathfinder Society uncover the source of the curse in time, or will the Blackros Museum be forever lost to the mists of Mwangi?

1:00 pm - 6:00 pm  D&D – Defiance in Phlan

Characters of Level 1-2

The Cult of the Dragon has come to Phlan, a lawless refuge on the Moonsea.  Now, with no significant authority to stop the cult, other power groups in the realms – the Harpers, Order of the Gauntlet, Emerald Enclave, Lords’Alliance, and even the Zhentarim – must unite to stop the cult from fulfilling its dark purpose in the city.  Join the fight by participating in any one of the five missions aimed at stopping the cult.

1:00 pm - 6:00 pm  D&D – Secrets of Sokol Keep

Characters of Level 1-4

Decades have passed since Sokol Keep was reclaimed, and a small garrison placed there along with a beacon to help guide ships.  Now, that beacon has gone dark, and the garrison has disappeared.  In Phlan, rumors circulate that something ancient was discovered in the grounds beneath the Keep, dating to before the clerics of Tyr built the small fortress.  Uncover the secrets of Sokol Keep!

1:00 pm - 6:00 pm  D&D - Shadows on the Moonsea

Characters of Level 1-4

Life on the Moonsea isn’t easy.  Bandits, pirates, and cruel lords dominate the land, threatening those who make an honest living there.  Now, a new scourge is prowling the waters: A ghost ship has been striking small coastal villages, leaving its victims whispering about the “eye of the dracolich”.  Join the adventure and learn the truth behind this threat!

1:00 pm - 6:00 pm  D&D – Dues for the Dead

Characters of Level 1-4

For years, the Most Solemn Order of the Silent Shroud has tended the dead at Valinghen graveyard, providing them a peaceful eternal rest.  Now, that rest has been disturbed by a Necromancer seeking out a key to re-activate the Pool of Radiance. 

6:00 - 10:00 pm  Pathfinder – Rude Awakening

The players awaken from a routine mission to find themselves in the wreckage of their floating castle that appears buried in the side of a mountain on an alien world.  A brief but thorough investigation reveals that the crash was probably tens of millions of cycles ago.  It appears that your dream sleep has been the longest recorded as of the last update of these archives at 33.329 million cycles.

6:00 pm -10:00  Star Wars RPG – Order 66 What If?...

The game will take place near the end of the Clone Wars.  The setting will answer some burning questions.  The characters will be a mix of Jedi Generals, Clone ARC Troopers, and perhaps another more colorful or sordid sort.  The question could be one of many… do you survive Order 66? How and why will YOU out of 10,000 survive?  Or just the ultimate question… What If?

The character level or power scale will be accomplished Hero (Mid-Level).

6:00 pm -10:00 pm  Pathfinder – Three Orcs Walk Into a Bar…

Intermediate level non-campaign RPG

Honestly, you had no idea that your joke would go over that poorly.  Who would have guessed that there would be so many half-orcs in the tavern?  Apparently you have had too much to drink.

…Now you have a problem.  You are about to be introduced to orc humor, and even in your drunken state you are pretty certain you will not like it.  To make matters worse, several of the patrons appear eager to join the upcoming fight.  As you grab your tankard and take a final

Introduction to Pensacon Ingress

Ingress is an Android/iOS augmented reality GPS based adventure from Google where the world is your playing field.

Ingress transforms the real world into the landscape for a global game of mystery, intrigue, and competition. Our future is at stake.  You must choose a side. A mysterious energy has been unearthed by a team of scientists in Europe.  The origin and purpose of this force is unknown, but some researchers believe it is influencing the way we think.  We must control it or it will control us.

It is important you learn proper use of your scanner, and game strategies to help you level up, build a team, and tip the scales in your team’s favor.  Local agents TheWeaponX (Resistance), FoxII (Enlightened) and others will be joined by our special guest, agent Portalyst (Linda Besh), to show you how.  

Learn how ingress intertwines with reality and prepare for your mission to solve the PensaCon Challenge.

Agents, it’s time to move.

Controller Throwers Live!
Video Games - for many of us, they are a form of stress relief, they help us to decompress. But what happens when our favorite form of stress relief is itself quite stressful?

We all have "that game" or maybe even "those games": the one(s) that made us so angry, so frustrated, so maddeningly enraged that we were tempted to illogically throw our very game controllers against a wall...or perhaps some of us have even committed this act (aka "pulling a McEnroe") much to our shame and economic woe.

Join Aaron Becker for a discussion of the many ways video games - even really GOOD ones - can drive us mad and potentially abusive relationship gamers have with their games.

 In addition, volunteers from the audience will be asked to test their might as they are pitted against some of gaming's most iconic controller-throwing moments and some of Aaron's personal favorite "gems of masochist gaming" and playing for fabulous prizes!*

*Fabulous prizes may in fact be candy.

GAME DETAILS

8:00 am -1:00 pm  Pathfinder Adventure Card Game (Demos available)

There's adventure to be had on the high seas when a group of press-ganged pirates becomes embroiled in the plots and plunder of the Shackles—an infamous island chain dominated by pirate warlords. But as these new swashbucklers make names for themselves, rival scalawags, enemy navies, legendary sea monsters, and the infamous Hurricane King himself seek to see them walk the plank. Who will survive when there's loot on the line?

The Pathfinder Society Adventure Card Guild is your gateway to fun and adventure! If you enjoy playing the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, and want to play or volunteer in your area, the Adventure Card Guild has just started its inaugural season, Season of the Shackles. Full of pirates, plunder, and the occasional shark, this season is bound to be full of high-seas hijinks!

8:00 am - 1:00 pm  PFS – Silverhex Quest (Best for new players)

The River Kingdoms is a tumultuous land of bloodthirsty bandits, treasure-laden ruins, and self-proclaimed kings, and for years it has been the subject of study for Ulisha, a curious and capable half-orc explorer. Shortly after performing a heist that enraged the local nobility, she came across a collapsing stone circle and discovered Silverhex, an enchanted sickle used by druids millennia before. She did not have long to admire her find, though, for the nobles had posted a bounty to end her meddling for good.

Unable to deal with her pursuers on her own, she has contacted you. If you can raise enough money, she’s willing to sell Silverhex to you at a steep discount and then pay off her bounty.

The Silverhex Chronicles is a series of six Quests, short adventures that take you to a graveyard in Gralton, a mist-choked forest in Ustalav, a brainwashed village in Razmiran, an ancient crash site in Numeria, and finally to a city of assassins in Daggermark.

8:00 am - 1:00 pm  PFS – The Wounded Wisp #6-10 (Great for new players)

More than 400 years have transpired since the Pathfinder Society began in a humble tavern that has quietly weathered the centuries without incident. When a routine errand there uncovers a clue left behind by one of the founding Pathfinders, it’s up to the PCs to solve a puzzle whose pieces are scattered across Absalom—and whose prize dates back to the Society’s darkest years.

"The Wounded Wisp" is an evergreen, replayable scenario designed to help introduce players to the history of the Pathfinder Society and Absalom’s greatest sites.

8:00 am - 1:00 pm  PFS – Beacon Below #6-04 (Not recommended for new players)

Thousands of years ago, a defeated order of Osirian sages sought refuge in the perilous Pillars of the Sun in central Osirian. Until recently they were presumed lost, but recent exploration has uncovered the fortress sanctum they left behind. When the PCs delve into one of its sealed halls, they find the sages’ millennia-old projects dormant but not dead.

8:00 am - 1:00 pm  PFS – Ruins of the Bonekeep Pt 2: Maze of the Mind Slave  #5-S2 (Not recommended for new players)

A group of Pathfinders recently delved into the ruins of Bonekeep, a siege fortress destroyed centuries ago. There they discovered not only terrifying threats but also extraordinary treasures. Warded by the magic of a senior Pathfinder, the party must explore as much of Bonekeep as they can before the spell dissipates, lest they too are enslaved by the enchanted maze that looks hauntingly more familiar with each discovery.

8:00 am - 1:00 pm  PFS – Echoes of the Overwatched #3-07 (Good for new players)

When a Pathfinder agent working in the famed Blakros Museum in Absalom falls victim to a terrible, ancient evil, if falls to the PCs to hunt down the released terror before it can retrieve a relic of the mad astronomer Ralzeros the Overwatched.

9:00 am - 11:00 am  Pathfinder – Crypt of the Everflame

This is for gamers wanting to try role-play gaming, or those experienced gamers wanting to learn the Pathfinder rules. 

Once every year the villagers in the northern reaches of Fangwood Forest chose some worthy villagers to take the two day trek to their village founder’s (Ekat Kassen) tomb, and get their bullseye lantern lit by Kassen’s everflame torch.  The torch symbolizes the resilience and determination of Kassen and the villagers.  The flame is brought back to mark the end of the final harvest and stays lit during the long winter.

All supplies including 3-4 level characters, dice, paper, and pencils will be provided at the session.

9:00 am - 12:00 pm  World of Darkness (New Rule System) – D10 Dive Poll Roller

In a spooky world of mystery and terror, somewhere between the nightmares and the Fairy Tales, is World of Darkness.  A game where the supernatural runs rampant, as the daily grind hides some of it.  You are a regular person, awakened with a spirit of adventure, and with the knowledge of what goes bump in the night.  You become a Hunter, bent on making the world a better place.  Come on and stir up a crazy, extra-worldly adventure.

1:00 pm - 3:00 pm  Traveller (Mongoose 4th Edition) – Far Future Dice Roller

INTRO GAMING SESSION

This adventuring session takes place far away from the Third Imperium.  You are the crew of a small ship named the Robyn.  This is an adventure sized just right for a crew of four.  There are one of 6 creative directions this adventure can take.  This is a short introductory game with pre-generated characters.

1:00 pm - 5:00 pm  Pathfinder – Rude Awakening

The players awaken from a routine mission to find themselves in the wreckage of their floating castle that appears buried in the side of a mountain on an alien world.  A brief but thorough investigation reveals that the crash was probably tens of millions of cycles ago.  It appears that your dream sleep has been the longest recorded as of the last update of these archives at 33.329 million cycles.

1:00 pm - 5:00 pm  Pathfinder - Wanted: Scallywags, Scoundrels & Scurvy Dogs Pt 1

Level: Expert

Number of Players: 6

Category: Non-campaign RPG

You had been chasing the Marinus Porcus for a fortnight. Reported to be carrying a cargo of gold and silver beyond imagining, she was the most sought after ship on the high seas. Also the most heavily armed. She had almost slipped through the net you and your fellow pirate captains cast when you sighted her. Not willing to let her go, you closed alone.

…The first catapult shot tore through your fortified stern castle like it was paper. The second was a set of balls and chain that scythed through scrabbling deckhands and main mast alike. In an eye blink your ship turned into a floating abattoir. Nevertheless, you closed to grappling distance and threw out your lines. Surprisingly, the grapples held and you managed to pull alongside. “At them you dogs!”, screamed the First Mate before an arrow took him in the throat. You and your murderous band of cutthroats swarm over the railing….

Can you take the Marinus Porcus in the face of such opposition? More importantly, can you keep her if you do?

Wanted: Scallywags, Scoundrels & Scurvy Dogs takes place in the warm waters of the Salton Archipelago. Set amongst tropical isles, this adventure is equal parts melee & (bad) roleplaying. Players are encouraged to create their own characters they think will best defeat the module. (See Character Generation Rules below) Pre-Gens available to those short on time. Award for best player.

Time Travel: Beyond the Blue BoxTime Travel

Everybody’s favorite Doctor knows how to have a good "time", but there’s a lot more to talk about in regards to time travel in our favorite fandoms, like books, shows, and movies. An interactive exploration of all things time travel.

Topics include Back to the Future, The Terminator, HG Wells's The Time Machine, Michael Criton’s Timeline, Mr Peabody and Sherman, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, and of course the myriad of episodes and movies of Star Trek and Twilight Zone. Also discussed are the concepts of the butterfly effect, paradoxes, and scientific research into time travel in real life. 

Questions posed to the audience:

  • First exposure to Time Travel?
  • What are the ramifications of time travel? 
  • Do you like stories where the future is set (choices don’t matter/predestination)?
  • Do we have free will or are we victims to the butterfly effect? Is it shown to be possible to change something and not start the butterfly effect?
  • Would paradoxes exist if time travel were real? Would they not really exist?
  • Would you want to time travel? Would you want to go back or forward and why?
  • As kids, did stories of time travel make history more interesting? Do they make science fiction more or less believable?
  • What time period or event would you want to be there for? What historical figure would you want to speak to?

Memoirs of the Virtual Cavemen: Fandom from Web 1.0 to Today
Part book tour. Part memoir. Part lesson in building a fandom. Rob Strangman and Sam Roberts are the respective masterminds behind West Mansion: The Splatterhouse Homepage and the Light Sword Cypher Mainframe, a Strider fansite. Their efforts have been used as a reference resource for both recent installments in their franchises, and they have received in-game credit for such. This panel will cover their memories of their time in the trenches and hopefully serve as a primer for anyone considering opening a fansite of their own. It's better to learn by laughing at someone else's pratfalls than to make them yourself.

World Building in Speculative Fiction
Andrew Metzger (one of my clients) and I would give a panel on how to world build in the various spec fiction genres, using our joint science and writing and publishing backgrounds.  This would be an interactive panel.  Another idea is Creating Credible Characters for Spec Fiction.  This is a version of a character building workshop that I have done many times, for SCBWI, for the North Carolina Writers Network, for the Burnaby Writers Society, for the Vancouver Writers Festival, and even for the Escambia County School District.  Again, an interactive panel in which I teach the skills necessary to build characters that your readers will come back to time and again.  Two professional panels I could offer would be on the role of a literary agent in today's publishing world, and also -- with Andrew Metzger -- a panel on the future of spec fiction in publishing.

I have been an editor and literary agent since 1981.  I have represented such authors as David Gerrold, Samuel R Delany, and David Bischoff.  Currently I am the only literary agent in Northwest Florida.  I specialize in representing writers of speculative fiction for adults and children, as well as other genres in fiction.  I am a member of Sisters-in-Crime and SCBWI.  I am a writer for Smash Entertainment in Orlando, and I have written for Publishers Weekly, The Horn Book, the SBWI Newsletter, various newspapers, as well as having written a children's science book and A Million Sherds, a Star Trek novel currently under consideration with CBS.  I have taught creative writing and publishing seminars at Duke University and Simon Fraser University, as well as community college in North Carolina and Canada.  I have taught writing workshops at Hofstra University for SCBWI, with the North Carolina Writers Network, at Wildacres Writers Conference, for the Burnaby Writers Society, and for the Vancouver Writers Festival.

For years, people have been making home movies, many times using pop culture properties that they may not own, but love.  In recent years, these types of projects have come to be known as "fanfilms".  Backyard Blockbusters looks at the history and influence of the fanfilm genre, as well as the copyright and fair use problems these films create, featuring highlights from and interviews with the creators of many popular films.

GAME DETAILS

10:00 am - 12:00 pm  Traveller (Mongoose 4th Edition) – Far Future Dice Roller

INTRO GAMING SESSION

This adventuring session takes place far away from the Third Imperium.  You are the crew of a small ship named the Robyn.  This is an adventure sized just right for a crew of four.  There are one of 6 creative directions this adventure can take.  This is a short introductory game with pre-generated characters.

10:00 am - 3:00 pm  Pathfinder Adventure Card Game

There's adventure to be had on the high seas when a group of press-ganged pirates becomes embroiled in the plots and plunder of the Shackles—an infamous island chain dominated by pirate warlords. But as these new swashbucklers make names for themselves, rival scalawags, enemy navies, legendary sea monsters, and the infamous Hurricane King himself seek to see them walk the plank. Who will survive when there's loot on the line?

The Pathfinder Society Adventure Card Guild is your gateway to fun and adventure! If you enjoy playing the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, and want to play or volunteer in your area, the Adventure Card Guild has just started its inaugural season, Season of the Shackles. Full of pirates, plunder, and the occasional shark, this season is bound to be full of high-seas hijinks!

10:00 am - 3:00 pm  PFS – Silverhex Quest (Best for new players)

The River Kingdoms is a tumultuous land of bloodthirsty bandits, treasure-laden ruins, and self-proclaimed kings, and for years it has been the subject of study for Ulisha, a curious and capable half-orc explorer. Shortly after performing a heist that enraged the local nobility, she came across a collapsing stone circle and discovered Silverhex, an enchanted sickle used by druids millennia before. She did not have long to admire her find, though, for the nobles had posted a bounty to end her meddling for good.

Unable to deal with her pursuers on her own, she has contacted you. If you can raise enough money, she’s willing to sell Silverhex to you at a steep discount and then pay off her bounty.

The Silverhex Chronicles is a series of six Quests, short adventures that take you to a graveyard in Gralton, a mist-choked forest in Ustalav, a brainwashed village in Razmiran, an ancient crash site in Numeria, and finally to a city of assassins in Daggermark.        

10:00 am - 3:00 pm  PFS – The Wounded Wisp #6-10 (Great for new players)

More than 400 years have transpired since the Pathfinder Society began in a humble tavern that has quietly weathered the centuries without incident. When a routine errand there uncovers a clue left behind by one of the founding Pathfinders, it’s up to the PCs to solve a puzzle whose pieces are scattered across Absalom—and whose prize dates back to the Society’s darkest years.

"The Wounded Wisp" is an evergreen, replayable scenario designed to help introduce players to the history of the Pathfinder Society and Absalom’s greatest sites.

10:00 am - 3:00 pm  PFS – Slave Ships of Absalom #6-05 (Good for new players)

The metropolis of Absalom promotes commerce in its many forms, and although slavery is legal, it is increasingly common for citizens to frown on the institution. The practice becomes more questionable when an ally of the Pathfinder Society traces an attempt at supernatural surveillance through a slave. Sent as independent sleuths, the PCs must track down the source of this espionage, which takes them deep into underbelly of one of Absalom’s darkest industries.

10:00 am - 3:00 pm  PFS – The Technic Siege #6-03 (Not recommended for new players)

When the Pathfinder Society acquires a copy of A Thread of Silver, a written survey of some of Numeria's most closely guarded sites, the Technic League dispatches its own agents to the Pathfinder lodge in Nantambu to recover the text and make an example of those who would investigate Numeria's otherworldly secrets. Can the PCs prevent the League from stealing this valuable tome and destroying the Society's foothold in the Mwangi Expanse?

10:00 am - 3:00 pm  PFS – The Blakros Matrimony #4-09 (Not recommended for new players)

The eldest daughter of the prominent Blakros family is set to wed an influential Hellknight, and the Pathfinder Society is invited to the festivities. Dressed for a wedding befitting royalty, a team of Pathfinders attend the ceremony on behalf of the Decemvirate, but will their presence ultimately strengthen the Society's relationship with the influential Blakroses, or will events at the wedding bring the already tenuous alliance to a breaking point?

1:00 am - 4:00 pm  World of Darkness (New Rule System) – D10 Dive Poll Roller

In a spooky world of mystery and terror, somewhere between the nightmares and the Fairy Tales, is World of Darkness.  A game where the supernatural runs rampant, as the daily grind hides some of it.  You are a regular person, awakened with a spirit of adventure, and with the knowledge of what goes bump in the night.  You become a Hunter, bent on making the world a better place.  Come on and stir up a crazy, extra-worldly adventure.
