We are down to a few days to go before QuinCon 35 begins! So close and yet so far away. Our favorite local convention is upon us. 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 all 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. I do want to stress that players who registered and signed up on Warhorn will have their seats guaranteed for the tables they signed up for. As long as there is an available GM to run a table, we will do our best to seat everyone in each slot. Ever since we resumed live play after the pandemic, we have had plenty of players at our events, but a low sign up rate on Warhorn. I am not too concerned about that most of the time, but for an event like QuinCon it can be more problematic. Therefore, I am asking players to sign up ahead of time as I look over the final plans for this weekend. That way, I can get GMs for the slots with the most signups in them.
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. You don’t have a character? We’ve got every pregen you need for the Beginner Boxes, PFS2, and SFS. They are printed out and laminated for your use at the convention all weekend long!
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! (side note: This is starting to get really popular, so seating is limited unless I get more GMs to run it!)
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!
Hey! Did you want to play an ancestry but were short on Achievement Points to purchase it? Every player received 80 bonus points a month ago just for that very purpose. New Players get it automatically as soon as they register a character for either PFS2 or Starfinder, or both! You wanted to play an orc? You can! What’s that? You wanted to be a Tengu pirate? Now you can do it! You wanted a Tiefling heritage to go with that human ancestry? Boom! You got the points!
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. One individual is making d20 necklaces right now in the other room.
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 email@example.com. 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!
