MACE 2020 Special GM: James F. Kelly, The Tabletop Engineer

James F. Kelly, otherwise known as the The Tabletop Engineer on Youtube, will be attending MACE again in 2020.  James’ channel is devoted to the creation of game terrain for fantasy, science fiction, and other game genres. Original terrain designs are shared along with those inspired by existing products. Where appropriate, tools such as a 3D printer, laser cutter, and CNC machine are used to enhance projects.

At MACE 2020, he will be running the following in-person games

FRIDAY 8 PM

Call of Cthulhu 

4 players

Players will take on the roles of 1930s era investigators who stumble upon an ancient evil in the small city of Arkham, Massachusetts. No experience required. Rules will be taught and pre-rolled character options will be provided. I will be using the Pulp Cthulhu rules expansion that beefs up the investigators to HEROES who have a better chance of surviving… but not much. Game does involve horror elements.

Saturday 2 PM

D&D 

4 players

For beginners or those new to D&D. Players will be provided with pre-rolled character options and the rules will be taught as the game moves forward. Perfect for young kids, too. The adventure will have some scary elements but not too extreme horror elements. The adventure will be a typical dungeon crawl and last between 2-3 hours.

Sunday 9 AM

Frostgrave

4 players (2 teams, 2v2)

Players must bring their own Level 1 Wizard/Apprentice and Warband miniatures. 2nd Edition rules will be used and I will provide terrain for the game. Game should last between 2-4 hours.

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 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.
