AVL Scarefest is baaack!
For the third year since we graduated from our Wyvern’s Tale origins, we’ll be opening
up the creepiest Halloween-themed tabletop gaming con in the region! And we’d love for
you to come! This year’s event will be back at the beautiful Montreat Conference Center
for the weekend of October 20-22. You can pick up either a full weekend pass, or just a
day pass for one of the days at our website.
As in previous years, we will be offering a wide spread of RPGs, with lots of Pathfinder
Society Organized Play (where we started) but also D&D, Dread, Ghostbusters, Fiasco,
Cryptworld (run by its creator, Tim Snider!), Call of Cthulhu, DCC, and more! We will
also be bringing back Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator, plus this year we are adding
X-Wing to our list of offerings. You can see the full roster over on our Warhorn.
Also new this year, we are partnering with Well Played, North Carolina’s first board
game café, based right here in Asheville! Well Played will be taking over managing our
board games section, and will be running several tournaments and play-to-win games,
along with being available to advise on any rules questions you might have.
What’s not new is that we are once again putting up a massive array of prizes to be
won, thanks to our very generous sponsors. Among the (very) long list are included
some stunning dice chests from Elderwood Academy and the infamous Demi-God
Bundle from Skullsplitter dice (150 dice!).
A limited amount of lodging is still available, so that you don’t have to drive home each
night (it can be reserved on our website), and everyone is welcome to join us for the
set-up/pre-party on Thursday night. We look forward to sharing a weekend of spooky
gaming with you all!
