Oh boy! It’s one month until the convention and if you’re reading this, it means you’re on the new site.
We’re really excited to be able to share Rob’s handiwork with you. How are you liking it? Did you put in a sweet avatar picture? Were you able to describe yourself in 140 characters or fewer?
Anyway, while the website is a huge step forward in the development of the con we’ve got lots of other things to be excited about coming up in October.
Firstly, the stars are aligning nicely to have our very first panel. It’s shaping up to be a perfect primer for writing and publishing your own roleplaying game. We’ve put a great group of folks together with years of experience in dealing with all aspects of the process. So, if you’re looking for that extra push to get your idea going, or even if you’re just interested in how games get made, you’re not going to want to miss it.
Also new this year, we have the inauguration of an award for outstanding contributions to the Edmonton roleplaying community. There's a whole post about it with more details than you can shake a stick at. You should check it out, You may even have someone you’d like to nominate.
Of course the meat and potatoes of the convention are the games, and it’s looking like we’ll have the widest variety yet. So far we have some IntrigueCon classics in the form of Sſtabhmontown, Call of Cthulhu, and Fiasco, some locally produced games like Troopers, and Shadows of Pindus and, of course, a sprinkling of the type of strangeness everyone should try at a con. Fancy playing Cthulhu Fighting Cats? Check out The Buzz Below . Have a hankering to play a secondarily aquatic mammal? Then Seaway to the Flipper Zone is perfect for you! Who doesn't want the opportunity, nay, privilege of playing an Elite Dolphin Scout on a deadly mission.
No matter what your tastes might be, we have you covered. Come out and support your local roleplaying con it runs October 12th to 14th, at the Queen Alexandra Hall.
See you there.
