#8-06 Reaping What We Sow (PFRPG)
A Pathfinder 1ed Society Scenario designed for levels 1–5.

When the flames of revolution swept through Galt, the Society lost much of what it held there: dozens of agents, several lodges, and the fellowship of countless contacts who foreswore the Society rather than become targets themselves. Although Venture-Captain Eliza Petulengro has reestablished a foothold in the country, she needs to rebuild her network of allies. One of the most important figures resides in Rosehaven, a small village due to celebrate its yearly festival of light and forgiveness. Petulengro hopes that an entourage of Pathfinders might participate in the festivities and endear itself to the Society’s former friend. Past evils have other plans, however, and unless the PCs can keep their wits about them, they might not just lose sight of the mission; they might lose their lives.

All Hands on Deck!

Don't worry, the skittermanders are here to help!

When a routine salvage operation deep in the Vast goes awry, the skittermanders Dakoyo, Gazigaz, Nako, and Quonx must board a luxurious cruise liner controlled by a rogue artificial intelligence to save their vesk boss and a group of hapless passengers. All manner of obstacles block their path to success, from malfunctioning massage tables to cybernetic undead to vermin from another plane, but if the skittermanders can work together (something skittermanders do best), they are sure to be hailed as tiny, furry heroes! That is, of course, if the passing pirate starship doesn't blast them all out of space first...

Designing Queer Games
Game designer Avery Alder opens this talk with a question: whose politics and experiences are we building our games around? After taking a look at the importance of queer representation in games, the talk explores why representation isn't enough. Avery points toward how game systems can be queered, with mechanics that reflect the politics and lived experiences of queer lives. Examples will be drawn from the past fifteen years of independent RPG design.

#10-11: The Hao Jin Hierophant
A Pathfinder 1ed Society Scenario designed for levels 5-9.

Seven years ago, the Pathfinder Society acquired the Hao Jin Tapestry, a powerful artifact and gateway to a wondrous yet slowly disintegrating museum-like demiplane. Despite the sacrifices made to preserve the Hao-Jin Tapestry by one of the Pathfinder Society's most influential members, the realm's collapse seems inevitable. The Society has dispatched teams to high-value sites to salvage what they can of the historical treasures and knowledge, and the PCs are one of these first groups. However, their study of an ancient Tian site becomes far more complex thanks to not one but two burgeoning religions. It's up to the PCs to navigate this landscape riddled with hazards both extraplanar and political.

Welcome to the wonderful world of Dungeon & Dragons. In this workshop we will be going through the basics of point buy character creation. At the end you will have characters that will be Adventurers League legal, and the workshop will end with a chance to play your character in a real game!

Will you be an Orc Warrior, a Dwarf Cleric, or maybe an Elf Ranger? It is up to you to decide. Join us in room 611 on the Gaming floor Friday evening to participate. Will you join in the battle and role initiative?

Room for up to 24 new players!

Pandemic Survival Casual Tournament
**THIS WILL NOT BE A QUALIFIER FOR THE 2020 SEASON**

Pandemic Survival is an “extreme” version of Pandemic where teams of two will face each other in an epic battle to save the world. Their goal: to be the first team to find all four cures, or to be the last team still alive at the end of the game. In this tournament-style version of the game, all teams will face the same problems: their player cards will all be placed in the same order before the game; the infected cities are the same for everyone; the Epidemics strike at the same time for all teams; every team has the same role cards. The only difference is the decisions they will make! Their strategic choices will lead each team in different directions, and one strategy will pay off in the end and lead to victory.

Euphoria
You find yourself in a dystopian cityscape with a few workers at your disposal to make your mark on the world. Like most people in dystopian fiction, your workers are oblivious to their situation. This world is all they've ever known, and you may use them at your whim.

Euphoria is a worker-placement game with dice to represent your workers. As a sort of middle manager in the dystopian regime, your eyes are open to the harsh realities of your world, and your primary goal is to gain as much influence as you can as fast as you can. In order to do this, you must walk a fine line where your underlings are concerned; they must have enough knowledge to be useful, but not so much that they grow disaffected and desert your cause. Use your workers to get resources and commodities, discover artifacts for a long-gone era, and forge alliances with the various factions that populate this world. What are you willing to sacrifice to build a better dystopia?

Munchkin Tournament
This tournament features fabulous loot that you can take home with you, where everyone is working from the same deck of cards, and is available to both newcomers as well as veteren dungeon delvers. The thing is, there is an additional rule that we will be using. If you have played the Munchkin game in the past, you will know of the two main phases. Kicking down the door and looting the room. But, in a tournament setting, there is a phase before kicking down the door. Listening at the door. "At the start of your turn, draw a face-down Door card, which you may play or not. If you Loot the Room, draw a face-down treasure, not a door."
 
In addition, we will also be operating under the "Plus-One" rule set in regards to promotional items. This rule is to insure that no player has a huge advantage over another player in regards to the use of bookmarks, promotional cards, T-Shirts, etc. And when we say etc, long time players will know that pretty much any munchkin product that is not a game has an effect on the game. The "Plus-One" rule is, as stated: "Players must reveal all promotional items at the start of the game. Players are limited to a total number of items equal to the least held number at their table, plus one." The exceptions to this rule is: The official smartphone Munchkin Level Counter, a Single Munchkin Sherpa or Munchkin Zombies Sherpa and a championship certificate signed by Steve Jackson or Andrew Hackard, embossed with the SJ Games logo are ALWAYS allowed, and the Official Munchkin Cthulhu Bookmark of Udder Ridiculousness is NEVER allowed.


This is a casual tournament for in-house prizes.

#1-09 Live Exploration Extreme!
A Starfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 1-4.

Although the Society was unaware of what existed within the false moon Salvation's End when it obtained exploration rights, Starfinders have since identified a vast, uncharted megacomplex within. The Society's ready to launch its first major expedition into the interior, yet there is one slight complication: in order to fund its initial survey missions, the Society accepted a grant that requires this first mission be televised by an Eoxian reality show. What is already be a momentous mission for the Society is only exacerbated by the mandatory presence of an unliving camera crew—not to mention the interference of the live studio audience in orbit! Can the PCs uncover the secrets of Salvation's End while upholding the Society's publicity deal (perhaps becoming celebrities in the process)?

#5–08: The Confirmation (PFRPG) PDF
A Pathfinder 1ed Society Scenario designed for level 1-2.

Almost all Pathfinders undergo extensive training for three or more years to learn the tricks of the trade, and their last test before graduating from the ranks of the initiates to the status of a full Pathfinder agent is the Confirmation, a special research project that involves considerable fieldwork and is designed to simulate the initiates' future work as a Pathfinder. Even the noteworthy field commissioned agents sometimes participate in such trials as a way to familiarize themselves with the Pathfinder Society’s rules and expectations. Although Confirmation is typically an individual affair, the society recently discovered a site on the Isle of Kortos that would be perfect for initiates but perhaps too dangerous to handle alone. Successfully uncovering this site’s secrets will not only contribute to the society’s body of knowledge but shape the exciting careers ahead for each of the prospective agents.

first. Each such tile has three colors on it laid out in a 1x3 row. At the start of the game, each player

table – with that chromino tile matching at least two colors on adjacent tiles already on the table – or
else they draw a new chromino tile from the stock, playing this tile if possible and keeping it otherwise.
The first player to empty their hand wins.

This tournament is played over 3 rounds; then a final round with the Top 4.

Winner gets a copy of Chromino.

A Pathfinder 1ed Society Scenario designed for levels 1–5.

Rival explorers have beaten the Pathfinders to a valuable site in Katapesh, but fortunately most of the riches—including the obscure text the Society sought in the first place—have ended up in the capitol’s extensive bazaars. What is at first a routine shopping trip spirals out of control as the PCs uncovers the writing’s secret past—and secret messages.

Dangerous Dungeon Delving, the Dark Souls of D&D (14+)
You don't know how you got here, but you find yourself with a group of complete strangers staring at a long corridor in some dank, forgotten dungeon. You are equipped with gear that isn't familiar. Some of you can sense magical or holy abilities you are positive you did not possessed before. There is a doorway at the end, a blank wall behind you. Perhaps the door leads to an exit? Without waiting, one of the strangers rushes for it. Proceeding hastily, they miss a slightly raised pressure plate on the floor, and after stepping on it, a large chunk of the ceiling comes crashing down, completely squishing them in a horrifying splat. The ceiling block raises itself again, exposing the gory remains of the stranger. Before you can even fully react, you catch movement behind the rest of the group. Seemingly out of nowhere, a figure has appeared, sharing a face with the recently squished stranger, yet wearing different gear. They appear extremely confused. Perhaps death is not so permanent in this place? Nevertheless, you must all work together to find a way out.

After creating her spectacular museum demiplane, the legendary sorcerer Hao Jin departed without a forwarding address. However, the Pathfinder Society has recently discovered her last known whereabouts on the Material Plane: a Tian Shu library that she later transported to her demiplane to spare it local dangers. Not only could this site shed light on Hao Jin's last accomplishments, but the building's vast contents are a snapshot of a continent's history. The sequestered library holds far more secrets than that, though, and it is now home to the proud Scalebreaker kobolds and a powerful spirit that they dare not anger.

The players are in the position of determining how they want to allocate their workers throughout the year. Every season is different on a vineyard, so the workers have different tasks they can take care of in the summer and winter. There is competition over those tasks, and often the first worker to get to the

#5–08: The Confirmation (PFRPG)
A Pathfinder 1ed Society Scenario designed for level 1-2.

Almost all Pathfinders undergo extensive training for three or more years to learn the tricks of the trade, and their last test before graduating from the ranks of the initiates to the status of a full Pathfinder agent is the Confirmation, a special research project that involves considerable fieldwork and is designed to simulate the initiates' future work as a Pathfinder. Even the noteworthy field commissioned agents sometimes participate in such trials as a way to familiarize themselves with the Pathfinder Society’s rules and expectations. Although Confirmation is typically an individual affair, the society recently discovered a site on the Isle of Kortos that would be perfect for initiates but perhaps too dangerous to handle alone. Successfully uncovering this site’s secrets will not only contribute to the society’s body of knowledge but shape the exciting careers ahead for each of the prospective agents.

Viticulture
In Viticulture, the players find themselves in the roles of people in rustic, pre-modern Tuscany who have inherited meager vineyards. They have a few plots of land, an old crushpad, a tiny cellar, and three workers. They each have a dream of being the first to call their winery a true success.

The players are in the position of determining how they want to allocate their workers throughout the year. Every season is different on a vineyard, so the workers have different tasks they can take care of in the summer and winter. There's competition over those tasks, and often the first worker to get to the job has an advantage over subsequent workers.

Players can decide to use their resources to construct buildings according to the construction cards in play. Choose carefully! Where you build, and what you build will determine how dense your Town will be and how many points it will score! At the end of the turn, a new player becomes Master Builder.
