I recently posted about fall cons coming up in Edmonton, and because I didn’t have all the information on it at the time I left one off. So get comfortable, kiddies, and let me talk to you about GLYPHcon (October 6-8)!
Now in its third year, GLYPHcon (or Games and Lore of Yearly Pathfinder Heroics con if you’re being formal) is a weekend long convention dedicated to all things Paizo Organized Play: Pathfinder, Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, and for the first time, Starfinder. It’s hosted by The Adventurer’s Guild (15211 Stony Plain Road), a great little gaming store in the west end, and is free admission. Whether you’ve been involved with Pathfinder Society Organized Play for a while, or have been interested but haven’t checked it out yet, this is your weekend. There will be multiple tables of Pathfinder, Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, and Starfinder running all weekend long, and you can see the schedule and sign-up for games on the Warhorn site.
As well, the con this year features not one, but two Pathfinder Society Specials: #8-99: The Solstice Scar and #9-00: Assault on Absalom. Specials are a chance to join several tables of Pathfinders in overcoming a particularly difficult threat or challenge, and what happens at your table can affect the other tables (and they you). You won’t have a chance to play these anywhere else unless you travel to a convention, so these are not to be missed.
I’ll be GMing the high tier table for Assault on Absalom, and I can guarantee it will be a rough ride; the high tier (10-11 level) tables are always a challenge. We’ll have to see which stalwart Pathfinders are up to the task, and which will fall in glory! I’ll also be playing some Starfinder, because that is the new hotness and I’ve developed a little crush on that game.
Make sure to check out the PFS Edmonton Facebook page to stay up to date on the event, as well as goings on in the local Pathfinder Society scene. Hopefully we’ll see you at GLYPHcon!
