There are still a couple of tables needing GMs.  As a reminder, GMs get a registration discount based on the number of games run.  Run 3 tables and your registration is free.

Paizo Announces Mid-South Venture-Captain

With thousands of players around the world, Pathfinder Society Organized Play relies on the assistance of volunteer regional coordinators - called Venture-Captains after the in-game regional leadership of the Pathfinder Society.  In today's Pathfinder Society blog, Phillip Goettsch was named the Venture-Captain for the greater Memphis area.

Here is a little about Phillip in his own words:
"I am an avid gamer that started out playing AD&D and Palladium's Rifts about 25 years ago. I love playing MMO's, Miniature wargames, CCG's, board games and of course table top RPG's. I have tried many different games, but truely think that Paizo has hit the mark with Pathfinder.

Outside of gaming I enjoy getting outside with my wife and kids. Hiking, biking, fishing and canoeing are all favorite activities. I am about to complete my Navy career, planning to retire in 2014."

Phillip is on the schedule to GM some slots at GameCon.  In addition, he is going to host a weekly session at Comic Cellar on Wednesday nights.

D&D A Documentary

A group of filmmakers, also gamers, are working on a film about D&D. While done before, based on the trailer below it looks like it would be really good. Check out the trailer, visit their website at, and maybe contribute to their kickstart project.

Shadowrun Missions

FORGE is adding a new game to the schedule: Shadowrun Missions!

Shadowrun is a RPG set in the dystopian near-future of 2072, a world where cyberpunk meets magic, where criminal subcultures rub shoulders with corporate elites, and where advanced technology competes with the power of spells and spirits.  Players take on the role of shadowrunners, freelance operatives that perform the dirty work and serve as deniable assets to the corporations and anyone else willing to pay.  Shadowrun Missions is the official living campaign for Shadowrun, so the characters you make at the FORGE table can be used at Cons and other gatherings.

FORGE is hosting a special gameday this Saturday, September 15, to kick off Shadowrun Missions.  We will be meeting at the Comic Cellar:
3620 Austin Peay Hwy, Ste 2
Memphis, TN 38128

A character creation session will start at 4pm for those needing last minute assistance, and the game will start at 6pm.  Go to the Games page to sign up.

Upcoming Events!

FORGE has regularly scheduled games the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month at Mid-South Hobbies & Games. See the games section for more information.
