Player Characters – Underground Con ’12

Posted in Game Session with tags , , , , on 11-Jun-12 by K-Slacker

On Saturday, June 9th, I ran a tabletop session of Tempora Mutantur at Underground Con. I had five players at the table, and like last year’s game, I ran an adventure based in a missile silo. I don’t have time to post a full session report right now, but I wanted to get the PCs online…

For the Convention, I wanted to use the “Alternative Core Rules“. I also took a stack of Character Cards.

Thank-you to all the players for gaming! I appreciate your time and enthusiasm.

Underground Con 2012

Posted in Game Planning with tags , , , on 17-Mar-12 by K-Slacker

I’m running another convention game this year at Underground Con. Last year’s game was well-received, and I’m looking to repeat the success and generate more interest in minimalist RPGs.

Here’s the promo blurb for this year’s event:

Underground Con is Calgary’s Premiere Grassroots Gaming Convention. Taking place over one day, we offer a variety of board games and rpgs for those that want to try something new!

This year, the Con happens on June 9, 2012 offering games in a variety of systems and keeping with favorites from last year like our Dominion Tournament. There is sure to be something for everyone! Underground Con is only $20 for a full day of games. You’re sure to find something you enjoy!

I want to play in the Iron DM tournament this year, so I’ve signed up for the 10:00 a.m. session (slot 1). Come have your morning coffee in a post-apocalyptic wasteland on June 9th!

Fleeing from a massive rad storm, the party found shelter in an abandoned missile silo, and explored the environs therein.
