This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

OSRCon Toronto August 12 and 13
« on: June 14, 2011, 10:42:01 AM »
There will be an 'Old School Renaissance' RPG convention this summer, August 12 and 13, in Toronto (Lillian H. Smith Library, at 239 College Street, just south of U of T).

In addition to various TSR versions of D&D (and their respective retro-clones), there will be games of Traveller, Pendragon, Bushido, RuneQuest, and others.

Ed Greenwood will be running a 'Forgotten Realms' game (although it looks like it's already full).

Here is the website for OSRCon.  Here is the schedule (likely to be expanded).

In case anyone here is curious, I’m signed up to run a Swords and Wizardry game – using my Akratic Wizardry house rules, of course!

Here’s the blurb for my game (to take place the morning of August 13):

Quote
Shipwrecked! The characters have washed up on an eldritch shore, and must work together in order to survive. Can a conniving merchant, a savage barbarian, an unscrupulous burglar, a decadent nobleman, and an enigmatic sorcerer overcome their mutual distrust and find a way off this unnatural island? (This is a ‘swords and sorcery’ themed adventure, using the GM’s ‘Akratic Wizardry’ house rules. Characters provided.)

 
This should be fun! It’s been years since I’ve done any gaming at a con.

If you’ll be in or near Toronto August 12 or 13, try to come by and roll some dice. :)
