Hey everyone, Amanda here!
Pat’s off on another grand adventure, this time to Emerald City Comicon, and I thought you’d probably like to know where he’ll be and when while he’s there.
As an added bonus, 2 of the panels will be available to watch live on Twitch, so you don’t even have to be there.
Additionally, there’s a table full of our Kingkiller merch in writer’s alley, number W-05. If you want to pick up something like Pairs, copies of The Princess and Mr. Whiffle, Boss Monster, or other cool things, be sure to swing by and say hi!
If you have the time to volunteer, we’d love to get some extra hands at the table; you can contact @Therajill on Twitter if you want to help out.
Here’s Pat’s full schedule:
Thursday, April 7
- 3-4pm: Signing at the University Bookstore Booth, #5100
Friday, April 8th
- 1:30pm-2:30pm: Patrick Rothfuss Spotlight, Main Stage – W4A
I honestly have no idea what Pat’s going to be doing on this panel, but previous events like this have included reading poetry, singing songs with the attendees, and extolled the virtues of combining tea with cup-a-noodle. So I can promise you won’t be bored.
Even better, this is going to be livestreamed on Emerald City’s Twitch channel, on the Main Stage channel, so anyone who has an internet connection and an hour free can see whatever Pat ends up doing. Remember that it’s 1:30-2:30 PACIFIC time, and adjust accordingly to your time zone.
- 2:45-4pm: Signing at the Level 6 Autographing Area, Table 27
- 4:15-5:15pm: The Girl Genius Radio Plays, T304
Saturday, April 9th
- 11am-12pm: Talk about Tak with James Ernest, W611
This panel is going to be a lot of fun. Pat and James are going to play and talk about Tak, the game from Wise Man’s Fear. There’s a Kickstarter in the works that you should be keeping an eye out for in the next couple of weeks, but in the meantime, this is a great way to learn about the game.
This panel is going to be livestreamed as well, this time on the Stage 2.0 portion of Emerald City’s twitch channel. It’s going to be a cool way to learn about Tak, so I highly suggest you check it out.
- 3:30-4:30: Signing at Badali Jewelry’s Booth, #111
Free time tickets are required for this, but you can pick them up at Badali’s booth anytime after the show opens. Since it’s only an hour, though, there won’t be a ton of them, so pick them up earlier if you can.
- 7pm-11pm Worldbuilders Tabletop Party
This is going to be a great event. It’s being organized by Greg Bilsland and Elyssa Grant, who are members of the Dungeons & Dragons team at Wizards of the Coast, and we’re super grateful to them for putting on this shindig.
Lots of authors, game designers, musicians, and other awesome folks are getting together to play games and hang out, all while raising money for Worldbuilders. This is one of the biggest collaborations we’ve done, and we’re really excited to see it doing so well already.
Sunday, April 10th
- 12pm-1pm: Crafting Characters in Sci-Fi and Fantasy, W603
There’s a serious powerhouse of authors on this panel, including Peter Orullian, Seanan McGuire, Peter V. Brett, and Bob Proehl. If you’ve ever wanted to hear what goes into crafting good characters, this is going to be a great place to do it.
- 1:15pm-2:15pm: Signing at the Level 6 Autographing Area, Table 29
You may have noticed there’s a signing set up every day, and that was pretty intentional, so even if you get a one-day pass, you should have a chance to see Pat and get something signed. Be sure to get there early, though, because they’ll cut off the lines to make sure Pat can get through everyone in his alloted time.

And that’s the whole of it. Remember that you can watch some of these events on Twitch, even if you can’t make it to the con. I know I will be, partly just to see what crazy thing Pat gets everyone to do this time.
Have fun out there, folks…
