Guests

Our guests this year include Clinton Boomer, Jaye Sonia, and Thurston Hillman! They will be running Premium Tables as part of our fundraising efforts this year!

What’s a premium table? Instead of holding a raffle for guest tables, you may purchase a spot at one of the guest tables at the convention. This is all done within the registration site.

Currently scheduled and approved premium tables include:

  • Jaye Sonia will run Bloodlines and Black Magic, a not-yet-released RPG adventure.
  • Starfinder Society Developer Thurston Hillman will be running the inaugural Starfinder scenario 1-00: Claim to Salvation!

There are more premium tables in the works, so keep an eye on the registration site!

Guest Information

Clinton Boomer
Clinton J. Boomer, known to his friends as ‘Booms,’ resides in the quaint, leafy, idyllic paradise of Macomb, Illinois, where he attended 4th grade through college. He began writing before the time of his own recollection, predominantly dictating stories to his ever-patient mother about fire-monsters and ice-monsters throwing children into garbage cans.

He began gaming with the 1993 release of Planescape, which shaped his Jr. High years, and he was first published professionally in the Ennie Award-winning Pathfinder Chronicles Campaign Setting from Paizo Publishing after placing in the Final Four of Paizo’s inaugural RPG Superstar! Competition. He currently devotes a full 99.9% of his waking hours to thinking about fantasy-adventure in general or ninjas, more specifically.
Jaye Sonia
Jaye Sonia, head of Storm Bunny Studios, will be joining us. Jaye's most recent work includes Bloodlines and Black magic, a not-yet-released RPG adventure.
Thurston Hillman
Thurston Hillman is a full-time author specializing in the RPG and gaming industry. He's known in the community as a developer for the Starfinder Society Organized Play campaign and ongoing contributions to the Pathfinder Society Organized Play Campaign. His Pathfinder contributions stretch back to Season 1, with highlights including the interactive special event 'Siege of the Diamond City', the pregenerated special 'True Dragons of Absalom', and most recently, the opening act of the new retirement trilogy "All for Immortality Part 1: First Taste of Eternity".

He's also contributed to all other Pathfinder RPG lines, with multiple entries in the hardcover rulebook, Campaign Setting and Player Companion lines. He's worked with numerous third party publishers, including EN World and Legendary Games.

Thurston's other interests include a passion for running horror-themed games, reading science fiction, and playing numerous (far too many) tabletop miniatures games. You can follow Thurston at oncallgm.com or on Twitter at @oncallgm
