PostSubject: Cheesegrinder RPG-Survival Tournament!   Wed 4 Nov 2015 - 16:55

Gamers I've played in this contest 5 times, and no gaming experience has even come remotely close to the intensity and enjoyment! It's truly an amazingly epic level experience!

PENSACON presents Cheesegrinder-RPG Survival Tournament! Sponsored by Bobe's Hobby House!

PENSACON is pleased to welcome The Cheese Grinder RPG Survival Tournament!

The Cheesegrinder has been one of the featured gaming events at DragonCon for the past 12 years, in which over 350 players compete over 48 hours.

The Cheesegrinder now comes to Pensacon 2016 with the same intense, exciting, action packed gaming event. To introduce this unique event to the area, we will be holding a free The Cheese Grinder RPG Survival Tournament! Preview Event on Saturday, November 14 from 10:00am-10:00pm at Bobe’s Hobby House!

Bring your most powerful, most “Cheesed out” 11th level Pathfinder table-top role-playing character (PC), and if your character survives the longest, then you win the tournament! Several different type of “Cheese Points” will also be available to purchase for $1 each. These points can be used for a variety of effects during the game. One of which will allow your PC to change places instantly with another PC at any time.

“The founder of Pensacola Roleplaying Association states, “In my 15 years of gaming, there has been no game session that even comes close to the immense excitement, enjoyment, or intensity of The Cheesegrinder. What you experience at this tournament are encounters you would never see in a normal game session which makes it all the more surprising and fun. It’s a must attend event.”

Your character will face riddles, traps, monsters, and maybe even other PCs in deadly combat, so is your character (PC) tough enough to last longer than the other contestants? When a player’s PC dies then another gamer takes that seat in the tournament. You can even re-enter the tournament with your same PC, once you’ve waited for another gamers character to die.

Pre-made characters will be available for free.

Some current prizes are but more are coming: Medals for 1st through 3rd place d20Pro, Virtual Table Top Software for 1st - 3rd place (http://www.d20pro.com/) random door prizes 1st prize winner also gets; Crystal Caste Dwarven Stone Tiger Eye full size dice set, and the Hrothgar’s Hoard Dice Case with exclusive custom lining. $130 prize 2nd place winner also gets medal and software: a Pathfinder Core Rule Book autographed by Lisa Steven Paizo CEO, Erik Mona Publisher, Jason Bulhman Lead Designer, and Sean. K. Reynolds former game designer. More prizes to be added soon!

Hey Gamers,

I wanted to thank Wesley for flying all the way from Arizona to host his Pensacola Cheesgrinder-Rpg Survival Tournament, and Tanner (our Pensacola Roleplayers Association member) for helping to host our VIP Wesley L. while he was here! Tanner was really instrumental in the success of our tournament, and making Wesley feel welcome! Thanks Tanner! THANK YOU to Bobe's Hobby House and Pensacon for hosting this incredible tournament!

I wanted to thank all the gamers who watched or participated in our awesome tournament! We had people come from as far away as Fairhope and Mobile! What was even cooler was every participant came to play for between 1-3 hours, but everyone stayed for an additional 3-6 hours, because they were having such a blast! Every gamer except one (they had to leave) re-entered the tournament after their first character died! They HAD to play again, because it was SO FUN! Sometimes gamers had to wait an hour to re-enter, but they didn't mind at all waiting.

The contest winners had to complete the most encounters overall, or the most encounters based on the characters alignment i.e.; the most rooms lawful aligned, evil aligned, or good aligned.

NOTE: Winner's were based on the encounters completed with only ONE of their characters. If you re-entered a tournament with another character, then the rooms/encounters completed started over with your new character.

L. Montgomery won First Place with an impressive completed 7 encounters (re-entered tournament once)

O. Montgomery won second place with 6 encounters (re-entered tournament twice)

Monkplayer won third place with 5 encounters (re-entered once).

If you can think it up, then we probably battled it, or tried to solve the riddle. From epic level trolls, to invisible Jungle Book characters, Wizard of Oz characters, Allips, BALOR, Burning Skeletons riding burning dogs, ""Snow White" Rakshasa" (we thought) & 7 adamantine golem Dwarfs (another riddle), etc. It was AWESOME!

Remember this was an intro-tournament for Pensacon, so be sure to check it out in February 2016! It will run for 48 hours straight, but will be concluding by adding the top six finalists for the arena player-verses-player fight to determine the final winner on Sunday afternoon.

The winner receiving 1st place: L. Montgomery (wife): 1st place medal, solid stone, full-sized Crystal Caste, Tiger's Eye solid-stone dice set & Horthgard's padauk wood dice case ($130), Hero lab's ($30 voucher), D20 Pro Virtual Table Top software ($60), D20 Pro exclusive Cheesgrinder D20 die (only 750 made), Fat Dragon Games Ultimate Dice Tower ($Cool, D&D 5e magnetic Battle Mat ($40). "Smack talking" privledges to husband, and other gamers for life ($1,000,000)!

2nd Place: O. Montgomery (husband): 2nd Place Medal, Pathfinder Core Rule Book signed by Paizo CEO/President; Lisa Stevens, Lead Game Developer/designer; Jason Bulhman, Game Designer; Sean K. Reynolds, Publisher; Erik Mona. Medieval Flail, D20 Pro Virtual Table Top software ($60), D20 Pro exclusive Cheesgrinder D20 die (only 750 made), Fat Dragon Games Ultimate Dice Tower ($Cool. Smack Talking rights to the wife to reduce her $1,00,000 value, and smack talking to people who don't know his wife beat him in the tournament.

3rd:(Monkplayer (who?)): 3rd Place Medal, D20 Pro Virtual Table Top software ($60), D20 Pro exclusive Cheesgrinder D20 die (only 750 made), Fat Dragon Games Ultimate Dice Tower. Does anyone ever remember who won third place, except their mother?
