Pathfinder Society Event
Geek Retreat host’s approximately two PFS events every month, you should definitely come along and check them out! Starting at 12pm.
“By playing Scottish Pathfinder Society, your character exists in a common setting shared by thousands of other gamers from around the world. In each Pathfinder Society game, your character experiences a short, one-sitting adventure (or “scenario”) that is a single episode in a continuing story and generally lasts four to five hours. It’s a great chance to try your hand at roleplaying, learn about the immersive world of Golarion, meet like-minded people and contribute your own presence to an evolving world and storyline.
You can then take your character to any public Pathfinder Society event anywhere in the world, and while the Game Master and your companions might change every time you play, your character advances as normal. Over time, campaigning in an organized play environment offers a uniquely immersive experience, as your diverse companions add depth and character to the campaign world. It’s a great way to play regularly without all the prep work and scheduling of a traditional campaign”
B-Movie Night! – Rubber
Starting at 5pm. Join us at Geek Retreat HQ as we face the most fun and laugh inducing foe of all… the B-Movie!
This time around we’re going to experience the cinematic masterpiece that is Rubber! Get ready for a thrilling ride, with writing and directorial style like you’ve never experienced before!
So that’s what’s on our slate for this week. Hope you all have fun.
See you there!
