Check out Heavy Gear, a new game from Dream Pod 9, in this demo event. The game features abstract, yet simple rules and quick and deadly action. GMs Mark Stock and Markus Nee bring their BattleTech equipment and expertise to this improved game system.
It's that Holiday time of year, but the seasonal madness is even more rampant than usual. Behind the violent chaos is hidden one man's well-crafted legacy, but the price of answers may prove deadly. Can the runners survive long enough to find out why things are going to hell in a turbo-charged pushcart? Sharp minds required, role-playing emphasized. Pick from a set of wild pregenerated characters.
Welcome, prisoner, to Camelot, where your skills with sword and lance, word and spell will be tested before you are freed-- where there are possibilities in every quest, a secret edge to every dagger, and a mystery in a simple cup. Characters are pregenerated Elders and Chaosites.
The skills of situational roleplaying, simulation and creativity are highly prevalent in many aspects of gaming, but are skills with applications in many fields of education, research and artistic creation. Students, ResStaff and experienced GMs alike are invited to this light seminar of group activities to exchange and explore the techniques and applications of the skills developed in the art of gaming. Bring your ear, your experience and your imagination; those new to gaming are encouraged to attend.
Try to guide your programmable robot across six boards of unpredictable chaos, all the while racing your various counterparts through a series of completely meaningless goals. The competition is stiff and the pace is fast in this creative and wild board game where one moment's leader is the next moment's heap of smoldering spare parts.
Gamemaster Marc Renouf takes the romance of fantasy and twists it with the intrigue of mystery to create the intricate and unpredictable world of Harn. Skilled roleplayers enjoy a rare oppurtunity for subtle interaction, and those seeking adventure are likely to find more then they bargained for. Rules experience is not necessary, and any looking to try out some in-depth roleplaying are invited to join the madness.
Bursley's Spades tournament returns! Pick a teammate and match your wits against the 'Lodge's best. Those familiar with Euchre and Hearts will also likely catch on fast, and are invited to try their hand in the tournament for a shot at BurCon's prizes.
The spirit and magic of the Moonrise return in this joint-storytelling adventure where fate brings the destined few together. Each player creates one extraordinary person in an ordinary world, and together they weave their tale from the things that matter most. Leave your books, your dice, your motives and your expectations at the door, and become someone else for a night by following the Winds.
Observe the reality of life's conspiracies from the other side. Dave Morris runs classic Illuminati, the card game where secret societies battle over control of the world's governments and organizations. Join the only game where the KGB might be controlled by convenience stores, while the tabloids hold the puppet strings of the Pentagon.
A dark, smokey pub somewhere in Shadow. Two shady characters ply their trade in turns of a card, tossing sly remarks and outrageous bets with offhand casualness. The stakes? Why, the Universe, of course... Amberites only, no Shadowknight, knowledge of Corwin Chronicles important. Must be in Amber at beginning of game. HEAVY emphasis on role-playing. 150 pt characters, must have Pattern, no Advanced Powers.
A quick and fun board game for the adventurous of heart. (Jaqueline plans to play as many short games as players are up for, starting at 11 am and going until whenever. Each game last about an hour or so.)
