PaizoCon 2016 Announces Dates and Guests of Honor


Annual Fan Fest for the World of Pathfinder to Take Place in Seattle May 27 – 30, 2016

REDMOND, WA (February 4, 2016): Paizo Inc., developer and publisher of the award-winning Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, announces today the Guests of Honor, dates, and badges on-sale for PaizoCon 2016, the annual fan celebration of all things Pathfinder. PaizoCon 2016 will take place at the Seattle DoubleTree Hilton, May 27 – 30, 2016.

Every year, Paizo brings together Pathfinder fans with leading artists, game designers, and other rock stars from the gaming industry for four days of gaming, seminars, and other activities related to their favorite hobby. Paizo is thrilled to announce this year’s Guests of Honor, artist Tyler Walpole and author Nicolas Logue.

Logue has wreaked havoc on Pathfinder players’ collective sanity since the inception of the game with his contributions to the Adventure Path line, including “Hook Mountain Massacre,” “Edge of Anarchy,” and “Lords of Rust.” Logue helped to launch Pathfinder Society in 2008, and authored Crown of the Kobold King, Revenge of the Kobold King, and Carnival of Tears (co-written with Tim Hitchcock). Logue is a two-time Fullbright Scholar and currently helps the theater program at Windward Community College in Kaneohe, Hawaii, where he instructs students in everything from Shakespeare to Beijing Opera, as well as fighting with broadswords, rapiers, daggers, and bo staves for the stage.

Artist Tyler Walpole has been a valued illustrator in the entertainment industry since the year 2000, with clients including Marvel Entertainment, Warner Bros Animation, Marvel/Lionsgate, DC Comics, Blizzard, Wizards of the Coast, Paizo’s Pathfinder, IDW, and Dynamite Entertainment, among many others. Walpole’s most widely seen work can be found in the form of licensed character images for every Marvel Studios movie since 2013, including Captain America: Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Ant-Man.

4-Day Badges are available for $75, Kid badges are $40. Single-day badges are available on-site at the PaizoCon store only, $25 for adults and $15 for kids.

Tickets are also available for the wildly popular Paizo Banquet for $35, or can be combined with a 4-Day Badge purchase for $10 off.
