Events in Seattle – PAX Prime 2015

Heya guys, Amanda here!

Pat is out in Seattle for PAX Prime, and he asked me to post up his schedule for the con so you could all find his glorious beard wherever its available.

Man, that was way creepier than I meant it to be.

For those of you not attending the con, on Thursday the 27th Pat is doing a reading and signing event with the University Bookstore, who are particularly good at keeping him caffeinated.

(Three different coffees, one crazy signing…)

This event won’t be at the bookstore, but over at the University Temple right across the street. That way there will be room for everyone who might want to show up. This is the same place they hosted him when he did the Slow Regard of Silent Things tour, and that was a great event.

7:00 pm: Reading, Q&A, and Signing
University Temple United Methodist Church
1415 NE 43rd St.
Seattle, WA 98105
Facebook Event

There’s no ticket price, but they are accepting $5 donations to Worldbuilders from everyone who is willing to pay it, which is really awesome of them.

On to the schedule for the con…

  • Thursday, August 27

His first event is actually at PAX Dev, and it sounds pretty cool.

2:15pm-3:15pm: Pat and Mike Selinker talk about Narrative in Games. Westin Grand Ballroom 3

If you play board games and don’t know who Mike Selinker is, you probably actually do. He’s the game designer behind a lot of the greats, like Axis and Allies, Betrayal at House on the Hill, and my current personal favorite, The Pathfinder Adventure Card Game. So you know he knows his stuff.

  • Friday, August 28

If you want to pick up some stuff from The Tinker’s Packs while you’re at PAX, the folks at Cards Against Humanity will have some of it, including the Pinny Arcade Talent Pipes, copies of The Adventures of the Princess and Mr. Whiffle, decks of Name of the Wind Playing Cards, and Pairs Decks.

PAX Swag

You can check them out and buy them at the ACT Theater, along with lots of other stuff Cards Against Humanity is doing in there…

2pm-4pm: Signing in the Autograph Area in the Westin

8:30pm: D&D Live with Acquisitions Inc. – Darkmagic vs. Do’Urden. Main Theater


Pat is once again playing Viari in the Acquisitions Inc campaign. Hopefully fewer chandeliers will be swung upon, but you really never know with Pat.

  • Saturday, August 29

3:30-4:30pm: An Afternoon with Patrick Rothfuss, Sasquatch Theater (Sheraton AB)

This is always a good time. Pat tends to tell crazy stories, read a bit, and generally goof off with the audience for an hour. If you want the true Rothfuss Experience ™, this is a great panel to go to.

5pm-7pm: Signing in the Autograph Area in the Westin

  • Sunday, August 30

2pm-3pm: Untitled Rothfuss:  The Live Conclusion of Max Temkin and Patrick Rothfuss’ Podcast, Sasquatch Theater (Sheraton AB)

If you haven’t been listening to Pat and Max’s podcast, you still have time to catch up. I listen every week. It started out as a way to monitor the stuff Pat was publicly announcing (like his willingness to sell his movie rights to Joss Whedon), and I ended up really enjoying it in the process.

Don’t tell Pat.

* * *

So that’s the plan, folks. If you want to catch Pat, these are the best places to do it. Even if the con isn’t your thing, you can still go to the signing event at the University Temple.

Thanks for letting me hijack the blog, guys. I promise not to go mad with power. Yet.

    Hi Amanda!

    It’s nice to see Pat delegating, as discussed in every. single. podcast.

    I love the podcast.

    for all of us not living in US, or too far away to join anyway, is any of these events going to be on youtube?

      i know the Aquisitions game will be there (all the past ones seem to be, and bless the soul who put ’em there).

    It’s a complete waste if you don’t go at least a little mad with power, I for one recommend going completely mad with power as soon as Pat stepped onto the plane.

    In one of the podcasts, Pat relayed the story of being at an event at San Diego ComicCon, and realizing that JOSS WHEDON was walking in his general direction, and how his brain just kind of shut down and he got twitchy and panicky and yet filled with joy all at the same time.

    Pat… perhaps it cannot be grokked by you, or perhaps it can, but… YOU are my Joss Whedon.

    So this is not a plea for you to come to my home town; it is the opposite. Avoid Tulsa. Were you to be in the same building, I would lose all of my sanity points and become a blithering idiot. (But oh, it would be kind of glorious at the same time.)

    Can I please request that someone transcribe the podcasts? Pleeeeease?

    The live conclusion?!? of Pat and Max’s podcast?

    That implies they are going to, you know, conclude.

    Pitiful sigh.

    I read “The Fantstic Flying Books of Morris Lessmore” to my three boys tonight at bedtime. It made me think of you. If you haven’t read it, I think you would enjoy the book with Oot.

    Thanks for constantly adding to the balance of joy in the world.

    I hope Pat will share his feelings on receiving George RR Martin’s Alfie Award for Best Novella, but I can understand if he doesn’t want to stir up any Puppy trouble.

      I’ve been following the news about this year’s Hugos and new that Slow Regard wouldn’t make it, but it got me sad when the official nomination statistics were published and I saw that it was very close to getting in (Slow Regard is one of the sweetest books I’ve ever read, and I would have loved that it had won a Hugo).

      I know is not the same and that this year has been different, but I was happy when I read on George’s blog what he did with the Alfies. It may not be the same kind of award, but it has a special meaning within. And Pat, you know that most of your readers love the novella. Thank you for writting such a sweet story.

    Any way we can here/view the live podcast on Sunday if we can’t make it to the actual event?

    Mr. Rothfuss, I would like to extend my apologies to you. My daughter was at the PAX convention having you sign a book for me, when she did the unthinkable. She asked the forbidden question. I am partially to blame. I did not tell her not to ask the forbidden question. What she was supposed to say was, “Hurry up!”. Again my deepest apologies. :)
