    Welcome to Pathfinder, a fantasy themed pen and paper roleplaying game that extends and builds upon the 3.5 Dungeons and Dragons framework. Join us every Wednesday for an epic fantasy adventure!

    These sessions are designed to be friendly to new players and are well-suited to drop-in/drop-out play. If you would like to make your own character beforehand, our DM would be happy to help you do so; we only ask that you arrive a little bit early so that there is ample time to do so.

    Current Campaign: Rise of the Rune Lords – “In the sleepy coastal town of Sandpoint, evil is brewing. An attack by crazed goblins during the annual Swallowtail Festival quickly turns into something more ominous as the shadows of a dark past come back to haunt the town—and perhaps all of Varisia. Can the heroes stop the awakening of a legendary runelord and keep him from reclaiming his lost kingdom of greed?”

    Starfinder at Boxcar! @ Boxcar Cafe
    Feb 27 @ 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm

    “The Starfinder Society is on the brink of ruin, having had to resort of mercenaries to maintain their hold on claimed planetoids, stellar regions, and archeological sites. After training to join a new cadre of Starfinders, it is up to you as a member of the Starfinder Society to help restore the organization.”

    Current Campaign: Dead Suns – “When a brutal gang war breaks out on a docking bay in Absalom Station, the player characters are recruited by the Starfinder Society to investigate the unexpected bloodshed. Delving into the station’s seedy Spike neighborhoods, the heroes confront the gangs and discover that both were paid to start the riot and that the true conflict is between two rival mining companies battling over a new arrival in orbit around the station: a mysteriously deserted ship and the strange asteroid it recovered from the Drift. To head off further violence, the heroes are asked to investigate the ship and discover what happened to its crew, as well as the nature of the asteroid it tows. But what the players find there will set in motion events that could threaten the entirety of the Pact Worlds and change the face of the galaxy!”
