Lots of games clubs are cautiously starting to return to playing in person and reporting how nice it is to make games a social event. There nothing to beat seeing your fellow players react to the horrors or the triumphs of an adventure – perhaps over a drink. If you feel the level of risk is acceptable to you, why not check out:

There will be all editions of Pathfinder and Starfinder, with Bounties incorporated alongside full scenarios at the beginning and end of the convention – allowing attendees to start later in the morning on Saturday, or head off early on Sunday night without missing out on a game.
The registration fee is £20. Prospective GMs – please get in touch! All proceeds above operating costs will go to support Yorkshire Air Ambulance. There will be a charity raffle on Sunday. Warhorn
ConDensed, 12–15 November at Billing Aquadome, Northampton.
Condensed is a weekend of gaming taking place at Billing Aquadrome near Northampton. As well as the Pathfinder and Starfinder games listed on Warhorn there will be a huge variety of other roleplaying games and we a library of boardgames you are welcome to use. Previous experience suggests that Warhorn is used for the majority of organised play campaigns. Most of the indie games prefer to do their sign ups at the event.
Dragonmeet rises again, to go back to an in-person event this year. It will take place on Saturday 4 December at Novotel London West, 1 Shortlands, London W6 8DR. We have an upstairs room set aside for Pathfinder and Starfinder games. We are told the room will comfortably fit 5 tables worth of games with generous space. Come and join us.
Having recently returned to his homeland after many years living overseas, Alistair Rigg is honoured to be appointed Venture Captain of England. While the landscape of organised play has, perhaps, been forever changed through the impact of the pandemic, he is looking forward to a return to the tabletop where he hopes to meet you all, one day.
Alistair first became involved with the Pathfinder Society in 2009 when he began building Australia’s Sydney Lodge. He was appointed Venture-Captain in 2011, shortly after the first call for regional coordinators. Throughout his tenure, Alistair has created and coordinated many game days and conventions, including PaizoCon Oz, which he co-founded with Stephen White, and Lissalapalooza, the largest Pathfinder convention in the southern hemisphere. Alistair has also acted as VC for Canberra, for Auckland, and, most recently, for San Francisco’s North and East Bay Area.
