We have less than four weeks to go before QuinCon 35 begins! So close and yet so far away. Our favorite local convention is drawing closer day by day. Are you ready for it? I know I am getting that way. We have a great lineup of gaming lined up for you to enjoy too. We’ve loaded up eight slots with plenty of Pathfinder 2e and Starfinder in each slot. GMs are signing up. What we need now is for you to sign up to play, GM, or both!
QuinCon 35 will be held July 15-17, 2022 at the Quincy Senior Center in Quincy, Illinois. You may register for the convention at their QuinCon 35 Warhorn page. The cost is only $15 which is a wonderful bargain for convention prices. Once you are notified your registration has cleared, you may begin to sign up for the games you want to play. Unlike our monthly and weekly events, we really need you to sign up for the convention so we can plan for you better. This is going to be one of the bigger conventions in QuinCon history after the two year hiatus due to the pandemic. Be sure to sign up and reserve your seat at the table you want to play at!
What’s that? You have some friends who have never played Pathfinder or Starfinder? We will have both Beginner Boxes available to teach them how to play the game of their choice effortlessly.
We also are going to run a two-part special Pathfinder 2nd Edition adventure which came out at the end of April in the new Book of the Dead rulebook. This was made for four third-level characters, but they can be Adventure Mode characters. Players can earn rewards for their Pathfinder Society characters as if they played two full PFS2 scenarios which this adventure basically is. We are offering this in Slots 5 and 6 on Saturday, July 17th. We will have some pregens available. I’ve set this up for three tables and if we have more sign-ups, I will seek out more GMs for it. It is not built like a Society scenario, so be prepared!
Hey! Wait! What if I want to GM some of these scenarios at QuinCon 35? That’s not a problem! Just register on the QuinCon 35 Warhorn page and fill out this handy dandy GM Volunteer form. You will receive $5 off your QuinCon 35 registration for every session you run a game in up to the $15 registration fee. Don’t worry! We’ll let you run more than 3 sessions if you want to!
There’s more to QuinCon than just our Pathfinder and Starfinder events too! There are plenty of vendors coming such as our own Tri-States Games & Hobbies where we play on the fourth Saturday of every month as well as alternating Monday evenings. Castle Perilous will be there as usual. I know art, jewelry, and other vendors will be there hawking their wares, hoping that you will haggle with them over prices.
There will also be Adventurer’s League sessions, Root, HeroQuest, Basic Roleplaying, Old School Essentials, Toon, Mark’s homemade miniatures game based on Bolt Action rules (highly recommended!), Savage Worlds (maybe some of that with the new Pathfinder adventure path?), almost certainly some Warhammer, and assorted board games will be played there as well. I have not heard about any demo games as of yet, but there are usually three or four of them running. I strongly suspect some Magic: The Gathering will be played along with some Yu-Gi-Oh. So, if you are looking to play some games, this is probably going to be a good place to do it.
If you have any questions about the Pathfinder and Starfinder side of things, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will answer your questions and deal with any problems you may have.
Well, that’s all I have. The only question I have for you is are you ready to play some games?
See you at QuinCon 35!
