About 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.

Play is organized into Seasons, throughout which the actions and achievements of you and your fellow Pathfinders create an ongoing storyline. Each season consists of Pathfinder Society scenarios (short, 4-hour adventures) set in a variety of exotic locations across Golarion.

Join the Pathfinder Society and create your character now!

About Starfinder Society

The Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild (SFS) is a worldwide science fantasy roleplaying campaign. Set thousands of years in Pathfinder’s future, the gods have mysteriously spirited Golarion away to an unknown location and refuse to answer questions about it. In its place, the cultures of that world have evolved and spread throughout the solar system, especially to a vast space platform called Absalom Station. Gifted access to a hyperspace dimension by an ascended AI deity, the residents of the system suddenly find themselves with the ability to travel faster than light, and the race is on to explore and colonize potentially millions of worlds. But there are horrors out there in the darkness…

The Starfinder Society recruits members of all races, alien and familiar, to join their ranks. Encouraging members to explore, report, and cooperate, the Starfinder Society sends teams into the vastness of space to explore the uncountable worlds of the universe. While on their missions, Starfinder Society agents works for sub-organizations with their own motivations agendas, earning reputation and securing favors.

Beginning this August, come join the mission, as the Starfinder Society requests YOU as their newest operative!

REGULAR SCHEDULE GAMES: For those that wish to propose scheduled events for MACE 2020, the best way to do that is through OGRe. Go to ogre.justusproductions.com. Log in (Make an account if you don’t have one. If you were a GM for us at any point in time since 2006, you more than likely have an account.). Click Propose Event on the left menu.

If you prefer to email us at , please include as much information about your event as possible. It is sort of a hassle to go back and forth with questions with so many GMs. Include game name and any link that will explain the game and/or provide the description, especially if it is a obscure game. Also include schedule preferences keeping in mind our standard 4 hr. slot schedule (although you are not limited to that schedule).

Three 4-hour sessions or 12 hours of gaming gets you in free, with fewer getting you a discount. See our discount policy on our web site at justusproductions.com for information on the discounts.

MACE 2020: Virtual Games

For MACE 2020 (and perhaps the future) we are providing the option for people to play games virtually on our schedule. The games will be run virtually by the GM and anyone that pays for a virtual ticket can sign up ahead of time to play them.

GMs can make proposals as normal through OGRe. Please note in the proposal notes that the game is Virtual – like THIS IS A VIRTUAL GAME. Everything involved in running the game virtually will be the GM’s responsibility and the GM must provide the specific instructions on how to join that game in the game proposal descriptions.

Players who wish to attend games virtually can either attend MACE and play virtually from the hotel, or play virtually from home after paying for a virtual ticket in registration.

Every virtual game will be allocated to the Virtual Gaming location in OGRe.

MACE 2020 COVID Update

Here is some updated info on MACE. We are still in a state of planning, but with the news from Governor Cooper, we can now offer more people the opportunity to attend. Please take a moment to read. If you have not registered to play, please do so. If you have not signed up to run, please do so. And make your room reservation. We need you to do this so that we have a good idea of number. MACE will be pre-reg (both as an attendee and for games) only this year, so please make your plans as soon as you can. I hope you will be able to attend. i am looking forward to seeing all of you. If you have any questions, please ask.

CHANGES IN RED

AttendanceLimited to 300

All attendees will be pre-registered.   There will still be no walk-up registrations.   The Attendee List includes GMs, Dealers, Players and Staff.

Gaming Registration

Games will be pre-registered for in OGRe.   We may have some Play to Win or Open Tables, but a lot will depend on how many people register, if any games are sent, and what tables we can have open.   To keep away from bunching up and to create the social distance, we will have posters in several locations showing what games are being played in specific rooms.

Dealers

The new room numbers have opened it for more dealers to be allowed in.  I will limit it to 2 rooms of 10 dealers.  But this will give us more room for these guys to show their wares.

Table Sizes and Players

We will use mostly rounds, but will have some 6’ tables in use.    Each table will only accommodate 5 chairs (1 GM and 4 Players).  Some rooms will be for RPGs and some will be for Board Games.    There will be a max of 5 tables per room.

GMs

There may be a limit on the number of GMs we can have as well as more restrictions on the type of games we can run.  We need to make sure that the games being run are games that will fill so that we do not have empty tables.

Game Slots and Time

We are still looking at 2 options for gaming this year.    We have the possibility of starting games on Thursday night.    All games would need to end at midnight to give the hotel crew time to clean each room.  A decision on this will be made soon.   In order to add the Thursday night games, we need enough GMs to fill those and the regular slots.

OPTION 1: 1 slot on Thursday, 3 on Friday, 3 on Saturday and 2 on Sunday.   

OPTION 2: the more traditional, 2 on Friday, 3 On Saturday and 2 on Sunday.    

Food

We will not be setting up the Grinning Goblin this year.   There are many restaurants close by and we will have breaks between slots.   I wish we could set it up, but health and safety reasons, we have decided not to this year.

MASKS

Masks will be required this year.   I will see if the hotel as something about its policy on MASKS.  What they say is what we do.

This is still a work in progress and may change as we have more information.

MACE 2020 COVID Plan

MACE will soon be upon us….we hope.    I have been in touch with the Hilton and a plan is being developed.    The official mandate from Governor Cooper is 10 people per room max.    We have 18 rooms available to us for MACE.   Most of these will easily accommodate the 10.  A few, even in normal times, really only held 6-7 comfortably.  So, we are looking at a maximum of 170 total occupants.   This number includes GMs, Players, Staff and Dealers.     We are a long way from the 700+ we normally get.

I have talked to a variety of people over the last few weeks to get some feedback.    This list includes GMs, Attendees, Dealers, Crafters, and Miniature Coordinators.    Below is the direction I am working on.   There will be limitations, but I think we can make it work for those who want to attend.

Attendance – Limited to 170

MASKS WILL BE REQUIRED AT ALL TIMES IN THE CONVENTION SPACE!

All attendees will be pre-registered.   There will be no walk-up registrations.   The Attendee List includes GMs, Dealers, Players and Staff.

Gaming Registration

Games will be pre-registered for in OGRe.   We may have some Play to Win or Open Tables, but a lot will depend on how many people register, if any games are sent, and what tables we can have open.   To keep away from bunching up and to create the social distance, we will have posters in several locations showing what games are being played in specific rooms.

Dealers

I plan on having some dealers, but they will be limited.    With only 10 people per room, if 5 of them are dealers, then at any given time only 5 customers can be in the room.   The Dealers Room will be the hardest to fill since I do not want to tell people no, but it may come to that.  

Table Sizes and Players

We will use mostly rounds, but will have some 6’ tables in use.    Due to the 10 person per room limit, each table will only accommodate 5 chairs (1 GM and 4 Players).  In the rooms where we can only get 1 table, we can play up to 10 round the table.   Those rooms may be used for Board Games.

GMs

There may be a limit on the number of GMs we can have as well as more restrictions on the type of games we can run.  We need to make sure that the games being run are games that will fill so that we do not have empty tables.

Game Slots and Time

We are looking at 2 options for gaming this year.    We have the possibility of starting games on Thursday night.    All games would need to end at midnight to give the hotel crew time to clean each room.

This is still a work in progress and may change as we have more information.

Just as a reminder…

MASKS WILL BE REQUIRED AT ALL TIMES IN THE CONVENTION SPACE!
