Anyone going to Conneticon? (also pathfinder society question)


Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 

So I am finally around for the local convention; http://connecticon.org/

 

The only other convention I've been to so far was PAX East. This con is much more varied as there will be gaming, LARPing, Costuming, movies ect (evidently standard con fare to most of you who have already been to cons).

 

I have a few questions.

 

1. Is anyone else going? If so would you like to have a meet up.

 

2. Any suggestions for a new con-goer to do? I'm planning to get some shopping in, meet in person all of these web-comic artists I like, and go to a few of the panels. And get some gaming in as well; which brings me to

 

3. Pathfinder Society. It looks like there are a bunch of PFS games going on. I've never gotten involved in them but am interested in giving it a shot. Anyone got the inside scoop on how these things are run, and what I have to do/bring to get involved in a game/games? I'm going to go through the PFS site and read up on it, but I'm pretty sure that some of the folks here have a lot of experience with PFS and even some run games at cons. So, any advice/tips would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks.

If your curious about PFS. Go ahead & take up a pre-gen character at a table. There is a PFS primer that is excellent start for PFS.

 

One of the biggest things I seen for PFS game is instead of the party dividing up treasure, each person gets a "copy" of that item if they'd like it.

 

For the most part, PFS runs just like a regular Pathfinder session.

 

While I'm not a big fan of PFS, after this year's RCon games I'm a bit more open to it.

I agree on taking a pre-gen. they may even have copies there at the con.

 

I know many of the New England area PFS GMs, and I would expect them to have pre-gens on site. (No harm in bringing your own, of course!) I don't know how many GMs will be coming up from NY/NJ to run at the con, but I would imagine they will pack a few as well.

 

I thought about heading down to Connecticon for a day to check it out, but I don't think my schedule is going to allow it.

 

If you're looking for more local cons (which is to say, at least as local to you as PAX East), you might want to check these out:

Totalcon (www.totalcon.com)

and OGC (www.ogc-con.com/ogc/)

 

OGC is just two weeks after Connecticon, up in Nashua, NH. I have never been to OGC in the past, but I will be there this year. (Alternating between the open painting area and PFS games ::): )

 

TotalCon is in Mansfield, MA and runs every year in February. I kick off my convention season each year at TotalCon, and I usually run a series of different games there. It's a great little con.

 

Cash:

There aren't a whole lot of classes at OGC or TotalCon, but a handful of people do hang out in the paint'n'take area to socialize and paint.

Good to know about the pre-gens.

 

As for the other New England cons, figures that OGC is happening while I'm in Florida visiting my in-laws. And that fact that it is in Nashua (I'm visiting my parents and typing this from right across the river). I had already known about Total Con, just never had my schedule match up with the dates. Maybe the next one.

 

thanks to all for the info. Now to figure out which games to attend.
