CAMPAIGN RPGS

Director: Brooks Banks

This year, Campaign Gaming will be offering 5 signature campaign offerings, 3 of which have been extremely successful in years past – Catalyst Lab’s ShadowRun Missions (SRM/CMP), Paizo’s Pathfinder Society (PFS), and WotC’s D&D Adventurers League (DDAL). In addition, we are going to be offering 2 new campaigns to Dragon Con – Paizo’s Starfinder Society ( SFS) and Paradigm’s Living Arcanis 5E. At present, we do not have a firm commitment to the specific events that will be offered, as release schedules for events have not been finalized by the various companies that offer Campaign style gaming. When current release schedules are available (ensuring the ability to provide the newest event scenarios, while being able to guarantee these scenarios will be received in a timely fashion for the show), we will update the Gaming Registration website (http://gaming.dragoncon.org/). All event scheduling should also be available for the final Gaming Guide and Dragon Con 2017 app.
