Paizo publishing is joining a growing list of companies to sponsor Gen Con Indy 2011. In addition to their location in the exhibit hall (booth 302), you can now also find a Paizo Publishing dedicated game event area in rooms 231-234 of the newly expanded and renovated Indiana Convention Center.
“We’re really happy to see Paizo Publishing continue to grow its engagement of the audience of game players at Gen Con. Their game industry veterans have crafted an amazing world for sharing fun, tactical and story-based gaming. Paizo Publishing always builds excitement into their Gen Con plans. I can’t wait to see them do it again this August!”
-Scott Elliott, senior director of sales at Gen Con LLC
If you’re a nerd who has been living in a cave, Paizo is a big time publisher of fantasy RPGs, accessories, board games, and novels. The Pathfinder RPG produced by Paizo was the result of the largest playtest in the history of tabletop RPG gaming. Pathfinder has been extremely successful and the core rule book even found its way into my home, although I have yet to play or GM a game. The game mechanics look pretty sweet and we might postpone our D&D 3.5 session this weekend and roll up some Pathfinder characters instead. What do you think of Paizo Publishing and their popular game Pathfinder?
Pathfinder Adventure Path is the most popular and best-selling monthly product in the tabletop RPG industry. Paizo.com is the leading online hobby retail store, and offers tens of thousands of products from a plethora of publishers to customers all over the world. Paizo has only been around for 9 years and has already received more than 40 major awards. I’m jealous.
With the additional gaming space offered by Paizo this year as well as being a sponsor one could gather that the publishing company is cleaning up and taking over so to say. Although I doubt they will encounter much opposition if my nerd friends are any indication of the status quo of nerd societal opinion on Paizo. Gen Con Indy 2011 is sure to be a smash, I hope I can make it!
“Gen Con is the highlight of any game company’s year. Joining Gen Con Indy as an event partner sponsor gives Paizo Publishing the chance to create an extra-special experience for our fans, and to teach our games to the curious folks who haven’t yet had the opportunity to try the Pathfinder® Roleplaying Game. We have amazing plans for this year, come join us!”
-Erik Mona, publisher of Paizo Publishing, LLC
