Saturday: 11am-1pm, 4pm-6pm
Sunday: 11am-1pm, 7pm-9pm
If you haven’t heard, the release date for the new edition of D&D is July 15, 2014! Wizards of the Coast has also announced (via Mike Mearls column) that a FREE pdf of the rules set called Basic D&D will be available on their website to download for everyone! For FREE! This download will include levels 1 to 20 and covers the cleric, fighter, rogue, and wizard, presenting what we view as the essential subclass for each. It also provides the dwarf, elf, halfling, and human as race options.
In celebration of the new release, Pacificon will offer D&D 5.0 FREEPLAY the entire weekend of the convention! So, if you want to stop by the convention during the weekend and catch a game of D&D 5.0, it’s FREE! No convention fee required (though you will still need to register for the convention, there will be no fee for just playing in the D&D 5.0 FREE PLAY.) Of course, regular badged attendees will be able to play in these games as well! NOTE: THE 5.0 D&D FREEPLAY PROGRAM IS FULL. WE ARE NOT TAKING ANY MORE REGISTRATIONS FOR IT.
We still have plenty of other D&D 5.0 games to play in either our Adventurer’s League program (signup here) or our Open Play program (signup at the show). Both of these programs require the purchase of a convention pass.
Rory Toma and the amazing Dwarven Forge Role Playing adventures will be back for the fourth in a series of adventures started here at Pacificon, and then continuing through the other major Bay Area conventions at Dundracon and Kublacon, before returning to Pacificon next year!
The Central Valley Wargamers will be on hand to present a series of large scale board games in the beautiful Sedona Ballroom outdoor patio!
