Pathfinder: Quest: Phantom Phenomena (level 1) [Role Playing Game]

A series of six Quests designed for 1st-level characters.

Bizarre phenomena have tormented the people of southeastern Ustalav for decades, and these events become stronger and more dangerous every year. Hoping to uncover the origins of these flashes of red lightning and spectral hauntings, Dr. Quolorum from the Sincomakti School of Sciences has set out with a team of able-bodied assistants. Can the PCs help the professor unlock the secret that dwells above Lantern Lake?

Phantom Phenomena includes six, 1-hour adventures that take the PCs to a superstitious village, a lightning-scarred woodland, an ancient Kellid monolith, a haunted manor, an occult university, and finally into the storm-choked mountains. Experience the adventures in any order to create a unique story.

Written by Brian Duckwitz, Cole Kronewitter, and Nicholas Milasich.

The Cheese Grinder RPG Survival Tournament

Sponsored by Bobe's Hobby House, d20Pro VTT software and Herolabs.

Pensacon is pleased to welcome The Cheese Grinder (TCG) RPG Survival Tournament!  The Cheese Grinder has been one of the featured gaming events at DragonCon for the past 12 years.  It now comes to the 2016  Pensacon with the same intense, exciting and action packed gaming event.

Players create their biggest, cheesiest, baddest, 11th level Pathfinder character, using TCG rule set, and are thrown into encounters to see how long they can survive.

It is a round robin style tournament. Six players sit down and play begins.  When one player’s character is killed, the next player takes that person's seat at the table and play continues. The party’s characters will change often. One minute a balanced party, the next all bards (but who takes a bard to The Cheese Grinder)?  You may last 2 hours, or you may only last 10 minutes.  The Cheese Grinder starts on Friday and keeps on for 48 hours straight!  Want something to do at 3am, come and roll dice with us!

The six top ranked players will be chosen for the finals to fight it out in an arena of death to see who will be crowned the King of Cheese.

Prepare yourself to fight creatures of legend.  Stumble through traps of true brutality.  Wrack your brain on puzzles, riddles and questions that would try any hero young and old.

To learn how The Cheese Grinder works please visit our website www.thecheesegrinder.com

Pregens are available for quick play!

The founder of Pensacola Roleplaying Association states, “In my 15 years of gaming, there has been no game session that even comes close to the immense excitement, enjoyment, or intensity of The Cheese Grinder.  What you experience at this tournament are encounters you would never see in a normal game session which makes it all the more surprising and fun. It’s a must attend event.”

The Strange - Strange Revelations [Role Playing Game]

WHAT IS THE STRANGE?

Beneath the orbits and atoms of our natural universe lies a network of dark energy. Those who have learned to access and navigate this chaotic sea have discovered an almost endless set of “recursions” in the shoals of our Earth: Worlds with their own laws of reality, reflected from human experience or imagination, given form in the swirling Chaosphere of the Strange. Worlds teeming with life, with discovery, with incredible treasures, and with sudden death.

Worlds sometimes jealous of our own.

Into-the-Strange-final

The secret plunder of these worlds draws the brave, the daring, and the unscrupulous—and it draws dangerous enemies from these recursions back to our Earth.

And slowly but inexorably, it draws the attention of beings from beyond Earth’s shoals—beings of unfathomable power and evil from the unknown reaches of. . .

Pathfinder: 5-02 The Wardstone Patrol (levels 3-7) [Role Playing Game]

All-out war has erupted on the long-contested border between the crusader nation of Mendev and the demon-infested Worldwound. With the magical defenses that once held the demons at bay failing, defense of the region now falls to small patrols of mobile soldiers to resupply, reinforce, and communicate between the border's many fortresses and outposts. With so much at stake, the Pathfinder Society has enlisted many of its agents to assist in the war effort, both to protect its own interests and to prevent the onrushing tide of demonic attackers from plunging the entire Inner Sea region into chaos. On one such wardstone patrol, however, the party may find itself facing an enemy of an entirely different nature.

Pathfinder: 5-08 The Confirmation (levels 1-2) [Role Playing Game]

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.

Pathfinder: 7-07 Trouble in Tamran (levels 1-5) [Role Playing Game]

Less than a decade ago, the Pathfinder Society established a lodge in Nirmathas, an act that infuriated the nation's expansionist rival Molthune. The latter outlawed the Society soon after, and ever since Pathfinders have relied on smugglers like the Varisian entrepreneur Guaril Karela to slip supplies past the Molthuni blockade for both the lodge and the Society's war-torn neighbors. Something has intercepted those shipments. Can the PCs uncover the culprit and save the Society's reputation in Nirmathas?

Content in "Trouble in Tamran" also ties into a special metaplot element fromPathfinder Society Special #6–98: Serpents Rise. Players who have completed that special event are encouraged to bring its Chronicle sheet when playing this adventure.

Popular media is often a reflection of the events and issues that are occurring when they are being created, and comic books are no exception. By exploring how civil rights and social justice issues have been portrayed in comic books and how writers and artists have been influenced by these movements, we can get a greater understanding of how young audiences are first introduced to these important issues. During the panel we will see how early African American characters were handled and often mishandled, as well as how issues such as women's rights, LGBTQQAI rights and people with disabilities have been addressed.

It is a round robin style tournament. Six players sit down and play begins.  When one player’s character is killed, the next player takes that person's seat at the table and play continues. The party’s characters will change often.

It’s a must attend event.”

The Cheese Grinder RPG Survival Tournament

Sponsored by Bobe's Hobby House, d20Pro VTT software and Herolabs.

Pensacon is pleased to welcome The Cheese Grinder (TCG) RPG Survival Tournament!  The Cheese Grinder has been one of the featured gaming events at DragonCon for the past 12 years.  It now comes to the 2016  Pensacon with the same intense, exciting and action packed gaming event.

Players create their biggest, cheesiest, baddest, 11th level Pathfinder character, using TCG rule set, and are thrown into encounters to see how long they can survive.

It is a round robin style tournament. Six players sit down and play begins.  When one player’s character is killed, the next player takes that person's seat at the table and play continues. The party’s characters will change often. One minute a balanced party, the next all bards (but who takes a bard to The Cheese Grinder)?  You may last 2 hours, or you may only last 10 minutes.  The Cheese Grinder starts on Friday and keeps on for 48 hours straight!  Want something to do at 3am, come and roll dice with us!

The six top ranked players will be chosen for the finals to fight it out in an arena of death to see who will be crowned the King of Cheese.

Prepare yourself to fight creatures of legend.  Stumble through traps of true brutality.  Wrack your brain on puzzles, riddles and questions that would try any hero young and old.

To learn how The Cheese Grinder works please visit our website www.thecheesegrinder.com

Pregens are available for quick play!

The founder of Pensacola Roleplaying Association states, “In my 15 years of gaming, there has been no game session that even comes close to the immense excitement, enjoyment, or intensity of The Cheese Grinder.  What you experience at this tournament are encounters you would never see in a normal game session which makes it all the more surprising and fun. It’s a must attend event.”

Check out these prizes donated by; D20pro, Herolabs, Dwarven Forge terrain, Hrothgars Hoard Dice Items, and Griffin Tamers Studio terrain.

The Cheese Grinder RPG Survival Tournament

Sponsored by Bobe's Hobby House, d20Pro VTT software and Herolabs.

Pensacon is pleased to welcome The Cheese Grinder (TCG) RPG Survival Tournament!  The Cheese Grinder has been one of the featured gaming events at DragonCon for the past 12 years.  It now comes to the 2016  Pensacon with the same intense, exciting and action packed gaming event.

Players create their biggest, cheesiest, baddest, 11th level Pathfinder character, using TCG rule set, and are thrown into encounters to see how long they can survive.

It is a round robin style tournament. Six players sit down and play begins.  When one player’s character is killed, the next player takes that person's seat at the table and play continues. The party’s characters will change often. One minute a balanced party, the next all bards (but who takes a bard to The Cheese Grinder)?  You may last 2 hours, or you may only last 10 minutes.  The Cheese Grinder starts on Friday and keeps on for 48 hours straight!  Want something to do at 3am, come and roll dice with us!

The six top ranked players will be chosen for the finals to fight it out in an arena of death to see who will be crowned the King of Cheese.

Prepare yourself to fight creatures of legend.  Stumble through traps of true brutality.  Wrack your brain on puzzles, riddles and questions that would try any hero young and old.

To learn how The Cheese Grinder works please visit our website www.thecheesegrinder.com

Pregens are available for quick play!

The founder of Pensacola Roleplaying Association states, “In my 15 years of gaming, there has been no game session that even comes close to the immense excitement, enjoyment, or intensity of The Cheese Grinder.  What you experience at this tournament are encounters you would never see in a normal game session which makes it all the more surprising and fun. It’s a must attend event.”

Pathfinder: 6-98 Serpents Rise (level 7) [Role Playing Game]

Years of political maneuvering, espionage, smuggling, and diplomacy have set the stage for the Aspis Consortium’s most ambitious attack on their Inner Sea rivals: the Pathfinder Society. All that remains are several key preparations that only an elite team of Aspis agents can arrange, and once the fireworks begin, these same agents must strike quickly and mercilessly to secure objectives—some shared and some connected to deeper plots—and escape without the Society being any the wiser.

In this adventure the players portray agents of the Aspis Consortium using 7th-level pregenerated characters. The events in this story also connect to and expand upon those in "Siege of Serpents".

One minute a balanced party, the next all bards (but who takes a bard to The Cheese Grinder)?  You may last 2 hours, or you may only last 10 minutes.  The Cheese Grinder starts on Friday and keeps on for 48 hours straight!  Want something to do at 3am, come and roll dice with us!

The six top ranked players will be chosen for the finals to fight it out in an arena of death to see who will be crowned the King of Cheese.

Prepare yourself to fight creatures of legend.  Stumble through traps of true brutality.  Wrack your brain on puzzles, riddles and questions that would try any hero young and old.

The founder of Pensacola Roleplaying Association states, “In my 15 years of gaming, there has been no game session that even comes close to the immense excitement, enjoyment, or intensity of The Cheese Grinder.  What you experience at this tournament are encounters you would never see in a normal game session which makes it all the more surprising and fun. It’s a must attend event.”

Join the fight by participating in any one of five different missions aimed at stopping the cult.

Dungeons & Dragons: DDEX2-14 The Sword of Selfaril
The fabled sword of Selfaril is told to bestow wisdom and power upon whomever wields it, so naturally its discovery has caused quite a stir in Mulmaster. All of this is complicated when a masked benefactor claims to not only know the truth about the blade, but also how it can be used to benefit the oppressed people of Mulmaster. Can it truly change Mulmaster for the better? An adventure for 5th-10th level characters.

Pathfinder: 5-08 The Confirmation (levels 1-2) [Role Playing Game]

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.

Pathfinder: 7-13 Captive in Crystal (levels 5-9) [Role Playing Game]

Recent events have left the Master of Spells Aram Zey unable to fulfill his duties, and without his expertise, the Pathfinder Society struggles to resolve pressing arcane matters. The Decemvirate has reopened the decade-old case of the most qualified replacement: Aram Zey's predecessor and former Master of Spells Sorrina Westyr, who disappeared while handling a powerful wayfinder that the Society has since kept closely guarded. It is up to the PCs to track down Sorrina Westyr—and bring back whatever remains.

Content in "Captive in Crystal" also contributes directly to the ongoing storyline of the Grand Lodge faction.

Numenera - Weird Discoveries [Role Playing Game]

There Have Been Eight Previous Worlds

Each world stretched across vast millennia of time. Each played host to a race whose civilizations rose to supremacy but eventually died or scattered, disappeared or transcended. During the time each world flourished, those that ruled it spoke to the stars, reengineered their physical bodies, and mastered form and essence, all in their own unique ways.

Each left behind remnants.

The people of the new world—the Ninth World—sometimes call these remnants magic, and who are we to say they’re wrong? But most give a unique name to the legacies of the nigh-unimaginable past. They call them…     Numenera

Set in a far, far distant future, the Numenera RPG puts a new spin on traditional fantasy, creating something unique to reinvigorate the imagination of gamers everywhere. Player characters explore a world of mystery and danger to find leftover artifacts of the past: bits of nanotechnology, the datasphere threaded among still-orbiting satellites, bio-engineered creatures, and myriad strange and wondrous devices that defy understanding. Numenera is about discovering the wonders of the worlds that came before, not for their own sake, but as the means to improve the present and build a future.

With streamlined, intuitive rules, Numenera allows players to create characters in minutes, emphasizes imagination and narrative, and features an elegant, flexible, and powerful rules set. Numenera is the latest creation of one of the biggest names in roleplaying games, award-winning designer and fan-favorite Monte Cook.

The Strange - Strange Revelations [Role Playing Game]

WHAT IS THE STRANGE?

Beneath the orbits and atoms of our natural universe lies a network of dark energy. Those who have learned to access and navigate this chaotic sea have discovered an almost endless set of “recursions” in the shoals of our Earth: Worlds with their own laws of reality, reflected from human experience or imagination, given form in the swirling Chaosphere of the Strange. Worlds teeming with life, with discovery, with incredible treasures, and with sudden death.

Worlds sometimes jealous of our own.

Into-the-Strange-final

The secret plunder of these worlds draws the brave, the daring, and the unscrupulous—and it draws dangerous enemies from these recursions back to our Earth.

And slowly but inexorably, it draws the attention of beings from beyond Earth’s shoals—beings of unfathomable power and evil from the unknown reaches of. . .

King Tigers in the Panzer Battles for Pomerania [Miniature Game]

Pensacon Historical Scenario for World At War rules, by Mongoose Publishing

"On 7 February, SS-Untersturmführer Fritz Kauerauf took command of three Königtigers at Zachen that had been repaired by the Abteilung workshop located at Stargard. He was ordered to attack from Reetz to relieve and break the encirclement of Arnswalde. Before reaching Reetz, which had been occupied by the Soviets, Kauerauf’s platoon was diverted to support 11. Panzer Abteilung ‘Herman von Salza’ in Jacobshagen. The tanks were then attached to 11. Armee under Kampfgruppe Munzel.

Meanwhile, the Königtigers in Arnswalde continue to hold off Soviet attacks.

In the early morning of 8 February SS-Untersturmführer Kauerauf was ordered to stop the advance of the Soviets across the Ihna Bridge, south of Jacobshagen (where the command post of 11. Panzer Abteilung ‘Herman von Salza’ was located), towards Ziegenhagen and Klein Silber. The attack consisted of Kauerauf’s Königtiger and three StuG assault guns under SS-Oberscharführer Phillipp Wild. The advance was halted when they encountered a strong Soviet force on a ridge east of Ihna.

They were reinforced by another two Königtigers under SS-Obersturmführer Kaes, commander of the 503rd’s 2nd Company, and another 10 StuG assault guns of the 11. SS-Panzerdivision ‘Nordland’, as well as a company Fallschirmjäger. They attack at around noon towards Ziegenhagen. The Fallschirmjäger take an anti-tank gun position on the outskirts of Ziegenhagen, then carry on to along both sides of the road and over the Ihna bridge into Ziegenhagen. This is follow by some hard fighting for the town, during which the Königtigers knock our three IS-2 heavy tanks.

By the evening, the Kampfgruppe had taken defensive positions on the southern outskirts of Klein Silber facing towards Reetz. Later that night three drums of fuel arrive for the Königtigers (each drum contains 200 litres gasoline).

The group in Arnswalde hold off more Soviet attacks at Schönwerder and Sandow.

On the morning of 9 February, the three Königtigers in Klein Silber were ordered to push east from their positions. They soon came under fire. The tank of SS-Obersturmführer Kaes was set on fire by an infantry assault and blocked the road for following 11th SS StuG assault guns. The leading tank of SS-Untersturmführer Kauerauf, was hit as it reached the outskirts of Klein Silber, Kauerauf was seriously injured. He survived his injuries, but was severely burned and had to have his left leg amputated. The third Königtiger was immobilised when its electrical system failed and was destroyed by its crew.

The Königtigers in Arnswalde continued to repel attacks, but were eventually relieved when panzergrenadiers of 11. Panzergrenadierdivision ‘Nordland’ and Führer Begleit Panzergrenadierdivision broke through the encirclement a week later (17 February), and the tanks were withdrawn to Zachan."

Pensacon is pleased to welcome The Cheese Grinder (TCG) RPG Survival Tournament!  The Cheese Grinder has been one of the featured gaming events at DragonCon for the past 12 years.  It now comes to the 2016  Pensacon with the same intense, exciting and action packed gaming event.

It is a round robin style tournament. Six players sit down and play begins.  When one player’s character is killed, the next player takes that person's seat at the table and play continues. The party’s characters will change often. One minute a balanced party, the next all bards (but who takes a bard to The Cheese Grinder)?  You may last 2 hours, or you may only last 10 minutes.  The Cheese Grinder starts on Friday and keeps on for 48 hours straight!  Want something to do at 3am, come and roll dice with us!

It’s a must attend event.”

The Cheese Grinder RPG Survival Tournament

Sponsored by Bobe's Hobby House, d20Pro VTT software and Herolabs.

Pensacon is pleased to welcome The Cheese Grinder (TCG) RPG Survival Tournament!  The Cheese Grinder has been one of the featured gaming events at DragonCon for the past 12 years.  It now comes to the 2016  Pensacon with the same intense, exciting and action packed gaming event.

Players create their biggest, cheesiest, baddest, 11th level Pathfinder character, using TCG rule set, and are thrown into encounters to see how long they can survive.

It is a round robin style tournament. Six players sit down and play begins.  When one player’s character is killed, the next player takes that person's seat at the table and play continues. The party’s characters will change often. One minute a balanced party, the next all bards (but who takes a bard to The Cheese Grinder)?  You may last 2 hours, or you may only last 10 minutes.  The Cheese Grinder starts on Friday and keeps on for 48 hours straight!  Want something to do at 3am, come and roll dice with us!

The six top ranked players will be chosen for the finals to fight it out in an arena of death to see who will be crowned the King of Cheese.

Prepare yourself to fight creatures of legend.  Stumble through traps of true brutality.  Wrack your brain on puzzles, riddles and questions that would try any hero young and old.

To learn how The Cheese Grinder works please visit our website www.thecheesegrinder.com

Pregens are available for quick play!

The founder of Pensacola Roleplaying Association states, “In my 15 years of gaming, there has been no game session that even comes close to the immense excitement, enjoyment, or intensity of The Cheese Grinder.  What you experience at this tournament are encounters you would never see in a normal game session which makes it all the more surprising and fun. It’s a must attend event.”

Pathfinder: 0-06 Black Waters (levels 1-5) [Role Playing Game]

The Pathfinder Society seeks the ancient ruby ring of the salamander and it falls to a team of Pathfinders to find it. Last seen in the Tri-Towers Yard, a once elite academy for the youth of Absalom, the ruby ring is now lost in the Drownyard, all that remains of Tri-Towers after it was destroyed a decade ago in the great quake. The Pathfinders must risk the strange black ichors and salty brine to find their prize—will they risk their very souls as well?

Pathfinder: 6-98 Serpents Rise (level 7) [Role Playing Game]

Years of political maneuvering, espionage, smuggling, and diplomacy have set the stage for the Aspis Consortium’s most ambitious attack on their Inner Sea rivals: the Pathfinder Society. All that remains are several key preparations that only an elite team of Aspis agents can arrange, and once the fireworks begin, these same agents must strike quickly and mercilessly to secure objectives—some shared and some connected to deeper plots—and escape without the Society being any the wiser.

In this adventure the players portray agents of the Aspis Consortium using 7th-level pregenerated characters. The events in this story also connect to and expand upon those in "Siege of Serpents".

I am a HUGE fan of quality science fiction and fantasy. I love to read great sci-fi/fantasy novels and I love to see well-done film adaptations of the novels I read. In recent years, as a good example, I have been VERY impressed with "The Hunger Games," both as novels and films. I am also an aspiring science fiction writer with two novels written and a third underway in my own dystopian trilogy.

Disturbing examples and current trends will be discussed and contrasted with expectations from the not-too-distant past. Audience discussion is encouraged.

The Cheese Grinder RPG Survival Tournament

Sponsored by Bobe's Hobby House, d20Pro VTT software and Herolabs.

Pensacon is pleased to welcome The Cheese Grinder (TCG) RPG Survival Tournament!  The Cheese Grinder has been one of the featured gaming events at DragonCon for the past 12 years.  It now comes to the 2016  Pensacon with the same intense, exciting and action packed gaming event.

Players create their biggest, cheesiest, baddest, 11th level Pathfinder character, using TCG rule set, and are thrown into encounters to see how long they can survive.

It is a round robin style tournament. Six players sit down and play begins.  When one player’s character is killed, the next player takes that person's seat at the table and play continues. The party’s characters will change often. One minute a balanced party, the next all bards (but who takes a bard to The Cheese Grinder)?  You may last 2 hours, or you may only last 10 minutes.  The Cheese Grinder starts on Friday and keeps on for 48 hours straight!  Want something to do at 3am, come and roll dice with us!

The six top ranked players will be chosen for the finals to fight it out in an arena of death to see who will be crowned the King of Cheese.

Prepare yourself to fight creatures of legend.  Stumble through traps of true brutality.  Wrack your brain on puzzles, riddles and questions that would try any hero young and old.

To learn how The Cheese Grinder works please visit our website www.thecheesegrinder.com

Pregens are available for quick play!

The founder of Pensacola Roleplaying Association states, “In my 15 years of gaming, there has been no game session that even comes close to the immense excitement, enjoyment, or intensity of The Cheese Grinder.  What you experience at this tournament are encounters you would never see in a normal game session which makes it all the more surprising and fun. It’s a must attend event.”

Check out these prizes donated by; D20pro, Herolabs, Dwarven Forge terrain, Hrothgars Hoard Dice Items, and Griffin Tamers Studio terrain.

Prizes:
