This event is over.


Come and join us the weekend of October 14-16, 2016, at The Best Western Premier Central Hotel & Conference Center 800 East Park Drive, Harrisburg, PA 17111.  They have rooms blocked for the event.  All you need to do to book your room is mention The Bodhana Group when you call  (717) 561-2800. 

The Bodhana Group, an Ephrata, PA non-profit organization is proud to present Save Against Fear 2016!  This is the sixth year of our annual role playing game convention style fund rasier.  It is a weekend of role playing fun, containing games spanning multiple genres and systems.  We have board games, role-playing games, and more tournaments than you can shake a 20 sided die at!  The event is run by The Bodhana Group and all proceeds from Save Against Fear 2016 will go directly to fund that organization and their various projects.  The Bodhana Group advocates the use of tabletop gaming as a directed therapeutic and clinical practice that can benefit personal growth as well as enhance social and educational services to individuals and families. 

We are taking over more of the event space of the hotel this year, having shown that our army of supporters and attendees are geared up fior another year at this sizable venue. 

This year contains all of the same traditions, plus some new surprises.  We will have multiple prizes from industry supporters, local businesses and independent crafters.  We will also have our achievement system, our random free Treasure Table as well as our traiditional bake sale table.  

We are also adding special events such as Panel Discussions and Workshops for GMs as well as Players.  These will be listed as special sessions as session info becomes available.  Sessions will be added each Monday after pre-registration opens January 25h, 2016!  Be on the lookout for our newest change, as we add board games and 2 hour sessions to our lineup, for even more flavor in that tasty stew of Save Against Fear!

For more details on special events visit Save Against Fear which shows you a little more about The Bodhana Group and where your support through attending goes.  

Save Against Fear is at its heart a place where attendees can play games, meet new people, and win exciting prizes, but it is more than that.  We also offer some unique speaking panels that for those interested, share insight into how the gaming hobby is more than just fun.  It iis a gateway to possibilities.  When we create a character to play, its as if we are creating a practice version of ourselves, who can help us explore parts of our identity and aspects of our world.  It can even let you explore qualities of personality you might want to adopt as you choose who you are.  Playing a character can teach us what we value, what we choose to fight for, what we love, and how we might solve problems differently.  Playing games can help improve our mind, our heart, our spirit, and as we strive and grow larger every year... our community. 

Members of the Pathfinder Society will be in attendance to fulfill all of your adventuring needs.

The cast of the Cap and Ton Show Podcast will again be in full force, running sessions and doing what they do best - being them!  Sessions run by Cap and Ton will be labelled as they are added.  Meet the cast and see what all the hulla-baloo is about!

Just added are that this year at Save Against Fear, we will have Magic The Gathering  as well as Warhammer 40K!  To attend these tournaments, you can either pay just the day rate for the day the tournament is on, or you can attend the tournament as part of a weekend pass.  The second option also enables you to get the swag pack, with your dice bag, rubber duck, starter die (kind of like a buck in a new wallet), and wristband.
