It's that time again! We're gearing up for this year's H.P. Pubcraft Lovecrawl, and we want to make it the best one ever. In order to do that, we need your feedback. Please take 5 minutes to fill out this survey and give us your thoughts. Thanks a ton!

For those wondering, tickets for the third annual H.P. Pubcraft Lovecrawl will be available in early July.




--

Looking for something to do Saturday night of PAX? Step into the dark and mysterious Seattle borough of Ballard for an inter-dimensional pubcrawl of celestial importance!

The H.P. Pubcraft Lovecrawl is a community-supported pubcrawl and megagame. This year, 'crawlers will assume a specific role in the setting of Innsmouth, and will become locked in an epic battle between cultists and townsfolk. You could be a hero. You could be a saboteur. You could go insane. Your choices will have a real impact on the outcome of the night. Will the city surrender to cultists? Or will good unleash its light on the shadows over Innsmouth?

This fully-baked adventure starts at Hilliards Brewery in Ballard at 8:30. There, you'll assume your role, organize your team, and start your adventure. The night will take you on a harrowing journey of epic importance (and epic ichor consumption). Save Innsmouth! Save Seattle! Save the world! There will be prizes.

You can check out a video from last year's event here.

We are selling tickets this year to cover costs and make the event as awesome as possible. All ticket proceeds will go directly into the event. I have a detailed budget for anyone who'd like to see it, but the basic breakdown is this: 73% of the budget goes to prizes and giveaways, 17% goes to pubcrawl and megagame supplies, and 10% will be reserved for incidentals. Any money left over after the event will be donated to Child's Play.

There are two levels of tickets. The General Admission level ($5) grants you entry into the H.P. Pubcraft Lovecrawl and full access to the megagame. The VIP Investigator level ($11) includes everything at the General Admission level, plus a poster, an investigator kit (with swag), and priority check-in.

Get your tickets here.

You buy your own drinks. This event is open to everyone 21 and older (no PAX badge required).

And don't forget to RSVP at our Facebook page.

You can easily catch the D-Line bus from downtown Seattle to Ballard (about a 20-minute ride). Ballard (Seattle's own fishing village) is home to 10 microbreweries and is the perfect place for a Lovecraftian adventure.

    One thing from last year that sort of took the steam out of the crawl was the distance between the bars. Has a new route been worked out where there's less walking and more drinking?

    :)

    :)

    Absolutely! :smiley:

    We are taking a much more direct route this year, with less than 8 minutes of walking between bars.

    Any other feedback is more than welcome! We put together a survey about a month ago for past 'crawlers, which you can take here.

    Thanks for you input!

    Just messaged you, but for the record I believe all pubs we will hit that night are wheelchair accessible.

    Hope you see you there!

    How about...

    - Suggested local craft beers available at each location - We don't know the best breweries if we're not local
    - Cab company recommendation/coordination (it was by sheer drunken luck I caught a ride back. I know it's not your responsibility, but it was something that occurred to me that would be nice to have)
    - A photographer that could photoshop us into a Lovecraftian scene
    - A Bob Ball figurine with his arm around Cthulhu

    God Dammit Cennedi...I was all looking forward to being like "Hey, I'm RussB, nice to see you Cennedi", and then having an awkward silence because I know nothing else about you.

    We have a party of 6 going, how extensive does people's Lovecraftian Knowledge need to be to meaningfully participate in the activities? I am sure one or two of them haven't read any Lovecraft at all.

    You can have a great time and literally not know anything about Lovecraft, but a good working knowledge of the mythos will allow you to appreciate he details of the experience.
