New Game Store in Batavia IL - Draxtar Games

I didn't see it initially, but since I drove past the shop twice a day everyday it was only a matter of time before it actually caught my eye. The electric sign that proclaimed "Games" was the giveaway, so on the way home from work today I stopped in to visit Draxtar Games. As is obvious from the picture at their Facebook page they have a good size space and they seem to keep it filled on game nights. They are running game tables for all types of games, including DnD Encounters on Wednesday nights. They maintain a good size set of gaming material as well, including Pathfinder, DnD, and other books, games, and miniatures.

They aren't running any Pathfinder games at the moment, but they are scheduling a Games Day for a Saturday in late August and want to run some "Introduction to Pathfinder" sessions. I could do that ... checking my schedule ... honestly if I was to do this we could just use the adventure that came with the Pathfinder Beginner Box. That is what our Friday night crew used to learn the basics of Pathfinder, so we'll see if this can be lined up.

Some Notes on Pathfinder Prestige Classes

Our Friday Night Pathfinder gaming group started playing the Rise of the Runelords Adventure Path this past fall and things are going great. Everyone is having a good time, and while I am not the greatest DM in the world, the ROTRL modules are very well written, with plenty of options, and the players never know what is going to happen next. All in all, a big thumbs up.
