A Fear of Fire
(In)famous GM Marc Renouf leads the runners of "Fear, Inc.". When they discover that their mission target is the local fire department, the situation gets interesting. When they find out why, things go to hell in a hand basket cyberpunk style!!
Chaos in the Time of Cerath the Holy
Somewhere between Darkness and Light, lies Shade. He is your guide to the land of Raggoth, where Cerath rules. Try not to kill any innocents. (In other words: a nifty D&D adventure full of surprises.)
Express Laser Crossed Filled Mine Laden Conveyer Belt to the Bottom of the Pit!!!
Join veteran Dave Morris and his chaotic blob of robots as they run in circles, shoot each other, shoot themselves, push each other into pits, drop mines, fire rockets, drive off the board, occasionally touch flags, and otherwise risk their lives in a race towards an utterly meaningless and insignificant goal.
It takes 5 minutes to learn, but fewer to DIE in this fast and exciting board game based on the movie Aliens. A 3-D board and miniatures presented by BurCon favorites Mark Stock and Markus Nee make this a game you won't want to miss.
Epic 2: The Rage Ensues
Veterans Len Smith and Dan Shauver return to BurCon bringing their legendary Epic equipment for another gargantuan display of hyper-futuristic warfare. Weeks of preparation have been done to insure complete destruction via the most creative means. In its second year, Epic's sheer magnitude has etched it into BurCon's tradition forever.
A Dark Winter's Night
As guests of the powerful Earl of Balim, the party must endure the inanities of court life--until the screams rip through storm frozen night. A classic "whodunit and how the hell do we survive this" adventure played out in a medieval fantasy setting. Characters will be provided, but bring your best paranoia and superstitions and let GM Marc Renouf do the rest.
Pick your favorite UM bus, arm it to the teeth, and then destroy anything that...well, exists. Extra points for blowing up your professor's car. Guest appearances DPS, the medical helicopter, and a gaggle of hapless Michigan State students. Dave Morris presents the maniacal firefight of Car Wars...but with UM busses.
The Avatar of the Fenris Wolf
A new prophet claims to have found an imprisoned avatar of the Fenris Wolf. Will you aid him, or will you heed vampire warnings of a new era of darkness? Will vampires and werewolves cooperate?... Or will tempers ignite the fury of supernatural powers, fists, and fangs? Let this new BurCon GM, Jonathan Kaufman lead you to find the answers.
Players looking for a free-willed excursion into imaginative and possibly surreal surroundings are invited to join BurCon organizer, Joe Mancuso. Emphasis is on roleplaying and storytelling, improvisation and lack of direction are encouraged. Characters and genre to be determined. Beginners are welcome.
Duelin' Daimyos and Roamin' Ronin in Freakin' Feudal Japan
The rising sun reveals the faces of your enemies. Nevik Roc directs as you allocate koku to marshal your forces -- both samurai and peasant -- and build mighty fortresses. By land and by sea, the battle rages on, for there can be only one... SHOGUN!!
