SYRINSCAPE COMES TO HOBBITON
Pathfinder Games Will Come Alive with Sound at Syrinscape’s PaizoCon OZ Debut with Special Guest DJ Benjamin Loomes
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA (October 10, 2017) – Syrinscape, creator of the award-winning apps that put the power of custom, movie-like sound effects, soundscapes, music and dynamic tabletop audio solutions at the fingertips of the gamer, announces today its plans for PaizoCon OZ 2017, taking place in Hobbiton, the location of the lush pastures of the Shire from the Lord of the Rings movies, Matamata, New Zealand October 13 – 15, 2017.
Syrinscape creator and co-host of the Dicestormers show, Benjamin Loomes will DJ the legendary Pathfinder Specials on Friday night at the Matamata Club and on Saturday night at the Green Dragon Inn Hobbiton Movie Set. Further, join Loomes and Pathfinder GMs for the seminar “Sound, Music and Ambience in Roleplaying Games” (Saturday, 2pm) for tips to make a more immersive roleplaying game experience with music, sound effects and lighting, and how to create handouts that wow players.
“A Syrinscape-backed Pathfinder Special is something not to be missed, having experienced one previously at PaizoCon US 2015,” says Paul Trani, PaizoCon OZ organizer. “We’re thrilled to have Ben joining us.”
The award-winning Syrinscape apps bring fantastic, realistic sound to tabletop gaming and are compatible with nearly any mobile device or computer.

Using a powerful audio engine and complex algorithms to produce ever-changing soundscapes and rich encounter-specific music, Syrinscape conjures every aural landscape imaginable, from ethereal forests and stony shorelines, to dank, vermin-filled dungeons, to the spooky depths of the underdark. Designed by accomplished composer and tabletop gamer Benjamin Loomes, along with the developers at the Interaction Consortium, Syrinscape builds on more than 8 years of prototyping and community feedback. Syrinscape is based in Australia. Syrinscape is available for a wide range of devices, including PCs, Macs, Android Tablets and phones, iPhones and iPads, and the players can be downloaded via syrinscape for free.
