MACE 2020: Clint Black of Pinnacle Entertainment Group

JustUs Productions is pleased to announce for MACE 2020, Clint Black will be running Savage Worlds Adventure Edition on Friday night and Saturday night.  

The Con Game (Savage Worlds)

It’s time once again for the greatest fandom convention in the Southern Mid-North Carolina region during late autumn, MASE! The Meeting Assemblage Symposium Expo is celebrating it’s 24th (month) anniversary!

The convention heads, Ref and John, have pulled out all the stops with lots of special guests!

Game designers like Shaun Headsley whose RPG very nearly funded on Kickstarter!

And of course you know, Mac Murser, the famous voice actor and GM of Literal Roll. His cousin will be there! Plus special appearances from both the TV and movie Bat-Lad, Teen Mutate Ninjitsu Tortoises, and other famous shows…of replicas of their vehicles AND the people who made them!

It looks to be the best MASE ever! At least it better be, since it’s your job to insure it all runs smoothly, and Ref and John are counting on you.

Bring your tongue firmly planted in cheek for this romp through a convention where everything will most definitely not go as planned. You know, like every other con.

Please see our gaming schedule through OGRe.  You must be registered for the convention to register for games.

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!

MACE West 2020: The Midnight Worlds RPG Playtests

MACE West 2020 is proud to host a soon to be kickstarted RPG called The Midnight World.  Find it on the schedule both Friday and Saturday night, GM’ed by Corby Stroud.

About The Midnight World

ROLE-PLAYING DREAD

The Midnight World is a narrative driven horror role playing game focused heavily on mounting anxiety and tension…that creeping dread you experience when you know something terrible is hiding somewhere just out of sight.Like other entries in the horror RPG market, The Midnight World seeks to tell grand stories of mind-cracking terror. Unlike those games, which tend to focus on the big flashy moments at the beginning and end of a story, The Midnight World tries to digs its claws into the stories that happen between, around, after and before them.

LIVING WITH THE MEMORY

Every Player Character in The Midnight World has had a brush with the terrifying creatures across the Twilight Veil. They all live every day with the awful memory of that event, and the heart-crushing anxiety that it might happen again.  Memory plays heavily into The Midnight World’s mechanical system. Character creation is based off of each character’s recollection of their own dance with cosmic horror. The way they recall that event provides the framework for their abilities, skills and backstory.  The character creation process can take as few as a couple of minutes, using pre-generated memory blocks, or the player can meticulously craft a memory and character sheet based on their desires.

THE 11TH HOUR

Just as the minutes constantly slip away in real life, the pendulum of The Midnight World’s clock swings steadily and without pause. Hour by hour, the hands creep towards their apex. Once it has been set in motion, there’s nothing anyone can do to stop it. The Midnight World’s system is designed to replicate the feeling of constantly creeping tension, of building pressure in your skull that must eventually rupture. When the clock chimes Twelve for you, will it be a relief or just some new kind of horror?

MACE West 2020: Savage Kingdoms 3e, with game creator Mike Yow

Mike Yow will be joining us at MACE West 2020 to run his fantasy RPG, Savage Kingdoms.  He will be running not only his new Savage Kingdoms 3rd Edition (recently Kickstarted).

Friday 8 pm 

Savage Kingdoms 3rd Ed.

The Shadow Throne

The Shadow Throne utilizes the Savage Kingdoms Playtest Rules for its upcoming 3rd edition release (and Kickstarter campaign), by local game designer and actor Mike Yow. In the southern reaches of Skathia, not far from the wintry borders of Mulovia, a local jarl – once known for his generosity and honorable nature – has become jaded and melancholy. Perhaps it is the recent death of his daughter or the icy claws of Mulovian necromancy at play? The jarl’s wife is has her own suspicions and, in turn, has invited our sellsword heroes to investigate under the guise of traveling merchants. Will the mystery be solved, or will the heroes become embroiled in something far darker than they might have imagined? Savage Kingdoms is an immersive sword-and-sorcery themed RPG which uses but the roll of a single d20 to resolve all actions, including combat. This helps to spur the action on and streamlines the overall narrative of the player-characters’ story.

Saturday 8 pm

Savage Kingdoms 3rd Ed.

Blood and Iron

Blood and Iron utilizes the Savage Kingdoms Playtest Rules for its upcoming 3rd edition release (and Kickstarter campaign), which offers a more streamlined iteration of the immersive sword-and-sorcery themed RPG by local game designer and actor Mike Yow. In the far reaches of the Emerald Islands, in the tribal kingdom of Faerland, dead things have been found in the woods and marshes of late – birds, beasts, even men. As a dark veil falls upon the land, some whisper of ancient curses and faerie spirits and things that go bump in the night. Savage Kingdoms uses but the roll of a single d20 for all action resolution, including combat, a mechanism that keeps the game swift and visceral as the narrative remains focused on the player-characters’ story.


About Savage Kingdoms

Savage Kingdoms is the brain child of Mike Yow, a long-time RPGer, dabbling game designer, and professional actor. First published in 2014, Savage Kingdoms: Reforged – this current project – is a full-color reimagining of not only the core rulebook, but the entire game line to come. In addition to full interior color and more artwork, the rules system has been tweaked and tightened up a bit, though perhaps not quite enough to warrant the moniker of “2nd Edition”.
