Summerfest is a non-convention-based special charity event. This event is open to the public. Check the session listing for venue information.
We are still planning the schedule for this event:
- Summerfest 2017, July 22nd - 24th, 2017 at Bee Happy Community Acupuncture, 8390 W Gage Blvd Suite 102, Kennewick, WA 99336
Summerfest will be raising donations to help United Through Reading, a non-profit organization that helps US Military families dealing with physical separation by fostering the bonding experience of reading aloud together.
United Through Reading helps create emotional connections between parents and their children, encourages literacy, and makes homecomings easier.
I have a goal of raising over $501 for United Through Reading this year for our Summerfest event. We successfully raised $415 in August 2017 by on-site donations. If you'd like to donate before the event, please let us know.
Advance sign up for GMing these events are requested and appreciated.
If you'd like to GM a scenario, module or adventure path, please email email@example.com to request a game time. We'll add listings to the Warhorn page.

Community Behavior Policy
The Pathfinder Society (PFS) is an inclusive social event open to everyone. It is our intention that everybody enjoys gaming in a safe and fun environment. While conflict between characters may arise, at no time should a player feel excluded or threatened at the table. We ask all participants to respect their fellow players and to work together to create positive memorable experiences. To this end, we reserve the right to refuse participation to any person for inappropriate or illegal conduct. All refusals of participation must be accompanied by a reason, duration of refusal, and the criteria for rejoining PFS activities.
Inappropriate conduct includes, but is not limited to, the excessive use of foul language, physical or verbal aggression/intimidation, lewd conduct, inappropriate physical contact, unwelcome sexual attention, slander, stalking and harassment/discrimination based on gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, or religion.
Complaints under this policy should be brought to the Event Organizer or a Venture-Officer, who will work to resolve the issue or escalate the issue to the next level of Venture-Officer. As an alternative, issues may be reported to the Organized Play Coordinator (OPC) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Issues will be resolved at the lowest level possible. In case of escalation, the OPC is the final arbiter of any dispute arising from application of this policy.
Nothing in this policy is intended to discourage any person from calling the police or other appropriate organizations. Event organizers or Venture-Officers are available to help participants contact local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event. We value your attendance.
While not illegal or even necessarily inappropriate, we recognize that PFS organized play campaign includes themes that may result in uncomfortable situations arising at the gaming table. In these instances, we request players identify the issue to the table Game Master (GM), whether vocally or by passing a note. We ask that GMs help the table respect attendees' sensibilities and reduce/redirect problematic themes once identified. Participants asked to stop any problematic behavior are expected to comply immediately or will be asked to leave the table.
It is our intention that everybody enjoys gaming in a safe and fun environment. While conflict between characters may arise, at no time should a player feel excluded or threatened at the table. We ask all participants to respect their fellow players and to work together to create positive memorable experiences. Once again, the intention of PFS org play is to provide a safe and fun environment. The above guidelines reference how we may achieve our goals. By sitting at a PFS table, participants are agreeing to the terms and conditions of Pathfinder Society organized play.
