Gary Con X Events

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by dndgeek, May 22, 2017.

  1. JediSoth

    JediSoth Troubadour

    After much deliberation, I have finally submitted events.

    Thursday: Cyborg Commando Tournament (Cyborg Commando) Noon - 4pm
    Friday: Cyborg Commando Tournament, Round 2 (Cyborg Commando) Noon - 4pm

    : The Wailing Sore (D&D 5E) Noon - 4pm
    The village of Bleakbrook prospers, content in their little corner of the world, ignoring the oddities and dangers of the world. Farmers grow their crops and tend to their livestock, children play in the meadows, and families work and live together. One day, that all changes as a strange growth erupts around the spring that serves the village. With their water supply now endangered, the villagers turn to the explorers and adventures in their midst. It is in this motley band of strangers they must place their hope.

    Saturday: Fairy, Faerie, Quite Contrary (D&D 5E) 6pm - 10pm
    Willowglen has fallen under a curse! With no one able to give a straight answer, or, frankly, have any clue what caused the curse, will the heroes be able to free the village from their tormentors, or are they doomed to fall prey to the malediction that plagues the fine folk of Willowglen? A light-hearted D&D 5E adventure.

    (technically, I didn't submit the CC tournament events, but I'm still running those two slots)

    I have submitted a game for Friday 8am, AD&D 2E Spelljammer Space Pirates.
    I am considering a game based in Luke & Ernie's Lost City of Gaxmoor

    Buried (Thurs, Fri, and Sat, 9am - 1pm)
    You were a slave. For quite some time you’ve been held captive in this mine; every day spent digging deeper into the earth, for what? You’ve had no knowledge of who your captors were or what it is they wanted. Like many others you were accosted, finally regaining consciousness and then forced to dig. Minutes ago the earth shook and sections of the mine collapsed, trapping you along with several survivors. As you contemplate the current situation, wondering if this is the end, something in the back of your mind whispers, 'No, this is just the beginning.'.

    Buried is a low-level dungeon crawl for players of all experience levels. Pre-generated characters will be provided.

    Buried II: A Light In Dark Places (Thu, Fri, and Sat, 2pm - 6pm)
    For one small group of survivors, the aftermath of a collapsed mine was the opportunity they needed to flee from the mysterious slavers who held them captive. After overcoming deadly traps and denizens in a labyrinth of unknown origins, the survivors finally managed to escape.

    Escape was not the salvation you expected, once again you find yourselves thrown even deeper into the secrets and mysteries that have, until now, remained Buried. The adventure continues as the survivors struggle to search for a way out of this strange underworld and back to the surface above.

    Buried II is a mid-level dungeon crawl for players with some experience. Play through the original adventure 'Buried' is highly encouraged for new players but NOT required. Pre-generated characters will be provided. ** Players who keep and want to use their characters from the original adventure will be allowed to play that character with any found items. **

    Added two more events:
    Sat 10-2: Marvel Super Heroes "New Mutants Carnival" (play the classic 1985 team as they contend with a carnival that's not quite what it seems)
    Sat 2-6: DCC "Star Crawl Classics" (I've been running my home DCC campaign in space for the last few years; this is an adventure using my custom space rules)

    I'm considering running Cthulhu Wars off-grid on Sunday evening if there's interest.

    Looks like everyone is doing some fine preparation for this next GaryCon!
    I have, after a bit of deliberation, submitted three events to run. They are, in a very particular order ...

    Night of the Comet - a fun take on the cult movie where our four young heroes, two men (boys?) and two girls, try to live through the day in Ventura, California, after it is taken over by some near-zombie-like individuals.
    This will be run on Thursday, 12p-4p. Savage Worlds

    Four Girls and a Tent - a Savage Worlds/Delta Green/Cthulhu-ish event where the unusual suicides of some college girls in the small town of Slayberry, North Carolina, has everyone looking for answers in this laid-back, unassuming small town.
    This will run on Friday, 12p-4p.

    And last but not least, the newest in my Savage Gilligan's Island Series, Episode 3 - Das Boot!? ... The castaways have to contend with some very dangerously confused and confusing visitors, an attack from the sky, and an invasion of some
    sort of puffy mushrooms that aren't normal in any way whatsoever. Saturday 12p-4p. Savage Worlds.

    See everyone there!

    "Attention shoppers!" Oh man, that sounds like a blast! I haven't seen that movie in ages. Wish I could play, but I'll be knee-deep in the dead by then as I'm running a 10-hour Tomb of Horrors game on Thursday. Have fun!
  10. Thomas Tullis

    Thomas Tullis Level 0 Character

    World War Tesla is an alternate-history wargame, where Nicola Tesla's more radical ideas such as death rays and force fields have come to fruition, changing the face of World War I. Giant walking tanks, soldiers with rocket-packs, and biplanes armed with death rays rule the battlefield. Game will be run by Fat Dragon Games' staff members. No prior experience necessary.

    Thursday March 8th: 12-4pm
    Saturday March 10th: 9am-1pm

    Are the Thursday and Saturday WWT events different scenarios? And are they different from the scenario used last year?

    They will both be the same scenario, but it is a new one for this year. :)

    I've added The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31 as a Saturday night event because it's so much damn fun.
