RPGCON V – Part 1

rpgconprint 1

Coming to a small work place office next weekend, I will be hosting the fifth annual RPGCON. I put this event together in the hopes of expanding our player pool, try out new games and introduce new players to role playing games in general. Back in 2012 on a random day in March RPGCON 1 was born. This free, invite only convention brought gamers from other groups together for a 10 hour day of role playing! I came up with this crazy idea to have the day split in half. Three games in the morning, then three other GM’s would take over new games for the afternoon.

Needless to say this went horribly wrong, games ran late, one game group merged with another game, Total chaos! At the end of the day each GM got to pick a reward from a selection of graphic novels  that I had brought to the event. Then each GM picked the best player in his group to pick a prize. Everyone had a great time but I know I had to make changes if I was going to continue my little convention the following year.

A Few Convention Badges (2012-2015)

Now the con had to be stream lined since I realized the mistakes I had made the previous year. First up games would be played all day with a short break for lunch (We do a potluck signup each year). To make it feel more like an actual convention I started making badges for all the attendees. Its become a tradition that I am very proud of and I really enjoy designing the badges. Not much has changed over the last couple years, the average amount of attendees is around 20 people which allows us to keep the games at a reasonable 4 players per game. Plus we have had a great group of GM’s that volunteer each year. Here is a list of the games we have played thus far:

AD&D – 1st & 2nd & 5th editions

Shadowrun

A Song of Fire & Ice

Robotech / Robotech RPG Tactics

Harn – Zombie Apocalypse

Marvel Super Heroes 

Savage Worlds – Gas Light

D6 Space adventure

Legend of the Five Rings

G.U.R.P.
