RPGA & Living Forgotten Realms at PAX

Dungeons and Dragons 4E is out and so is a brand new RPGA Living Campaign set in the Forgotten Realms. Play alongside thousands of others in what will be the world's largest tabletop campaign.

For events at RPGA events at PAX sign up over on Warhorn.net.
http://www.warhorn.net/PAX10/

Registration for RPGA role-playing events is free, but admission the PAX is not. You need a valid PAX badge to sit and play at RPGA events at the show.

Since this is a brand new campaign -- every event is new player friendly. Come and join us throughout the entire conventions from 10am-Midnight and jump into a 1 hour mini-dungeon to experience 4th Edition, and perhaps come back and play a full length (4 hour) adventure.

We are also running Star Wars Saga RPG events, and a classic standalone D&D adventure , "Return to the Moathouse", a 4th Edition return to Temple of Elemental evil.

Ask questions here -- I'll be happy to help you with anything you need to prep for the games at the convention.

    Will the 4E Delve be running in hours that are not slotted for play on Warhorn? I'd like to get in on some Delve action but would prefer to not have to give up playing in one of the LFR events.

    I'd be all over this, but the PAX schedule needs to be released first so I can decide which game to join.

    While registration is just starting, I am kind of surprised to see how many Leaders there are already.

    Yeah! How the hell are we supposed to schedule ANYTHING without knowing when anything will actually be happening?! It is so frustrating every time I look at the schedule page, it says to be announced. Barf!

    It takes less than a day to schedule everything you want to do, and the schedule will be released more than a week before PAX.

    You'll have plenty of time to schedule what you want to do. What you won't be able to do is do multiple things at once. It's entirely seemly that there will be at least two things you want to attend at any given time.

    I have never stuck to any schedule I made for PAX. Ever.

    I know. But I really want to get in on a D&D game and you can't just leave a game like that if there is a speaker or event you want to see. And it seems like you have to sign up in advance for those RPGs. I don't want the spots to fill up before I know what is scheduled.
    BTW, is there any other way to sign up for RPG's besides the Warhorn site?
    I am a PAX virgin - can anyone give me an idea of what to expect. Do I bring old characters, or do we role up new ones or what?

    RPGA Coordinator,
    I see you posted the following...

    "If you plan to play Living Greyhawk (D&D), Xendrik (D&D/Eberron), or Undermountain (D&D/Forgotten Realms), please come with a D&D Players Handbook if possible. If you plan to play the Star Wars Event, bring the new Star Wars Saga rules if possible. Dice (D20, D10, D12, D8, D6, and D4), paper, and pencil will also be very useful."

    Is a 3.5 Players Handbook ok? I have not seen any of the new 4th edition stuff yet. I've heard it's pretty different.

    No, you will need a 4th Edition PHB. The difference between 3.5 and 4th is large enough that pretty much nothing from the old Player's Handbook will be applicable. You can find character creation rules on the RPGA website over at wizards.com.

    To address your scheduling issues, I suggest signing up for any adventures you might want to play, and then removing yourself from sign-ups once you get to look at the actual PAX schedule and decide what you can make.
