JustUs Productions, the business organization behind the MACE series of gaming conventions and game days, is a company born of a love of a hobby – tabletop games. It is a business owned by Jeff and Karen Smith. Since 1996, JustUs has been involved in running gaming events in the Carolinas, from ROC 96.5 to MACE. In 2000, Ron McClung joined the team to organize the gaming events, adding his talents of organizing and programming to help bring the MACE series of events to what they are today.

We at Justus Productions pride ourselves in presenting our attendees with the best gaming events the Carolinas have to offer. Our events are about one thing – everyone having fun. We don’t try to be the biggest gaming event in the region, but we try to be the best.  Quality over quantity in part of our mission statement.

Our primary events are the MACE events, which are MACE, MACE West, MACE East, and mini-mace game days.  We also have recently been working with local fandom cons to run their gaming tracks, and these are our Client events.  These include ConGregate in High Point.  If you are an organizer of a convention and are interested in our gaming services, you can contact to discuss it.  Our time and resources are limited but we will at least talk it over with you.

There is a plethora of information about us, our events and what we do at them on this web site.  Use the menu above to navigate that information.  For quick access, use the dropdown below to quickly navigate the more common functions of our web site.

You can create a character and bring that character to games anywhere D&D Adventurers League is supported. Most D&D Adventurers League games are public, in-person play events. Typical venues for these events are game and hobby stores, conventions, and public-accessible game day events.

Pathfinder Society

You can not have gaming, especially RPG gaming, at a con without Pathfinder Society.  Pathfinder Society Organized Play is a worldwide fantasy roleplaying campaign that puts YOU in the role of an agent of the Pathfinder Society, a legendary league of explorers, archaeologists, and adventurers dedicated to discovering and chronicling the greatest mysteries and wonders of an ancient world beset by magic and evil.

The campaign’s home base is sprawling Absalom, the so-called City at the Center of the World, that stands astride the great Inner Sea on the mountain-capped Isle of Kortos. A Pathfinder’s adventures explore the dark alleys and political intrigue of Absalom between far-flung travels to the most interesting and exotic locales in the world of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.  In Pathfinder Society Organized Play, you play a member of the Pathfinder Society, seeking fortune and glory all over the face of Golarion. At the same time, your character works for one of the competing factions, all with their own motivations and secret agendas.
