ReaperCon RPG & Events

Recommended Posts

So do we have a list of what events, game and GMs will be running this year at ReaperCon 2012.

 

Star Wars: I am assuming the Chris(s) will be running Star Wars ... excited to see what they pull out of their bag of tricks this year.

 

Pathfinder: As always there has been a great gathering of Pathfinder followers at ReaperCon. As a GM I volunteer my services but if there are others please PM me I would like to coordinate with others.

 

Table top: Dungeon Crawls, Warlord, etc

 

 

Lets get this party started!

GM Chris is unconfirmed at this time, and has advised me he may be unable to attend.

 

I do not have a final RPG schedule at this time and will post when I know more.

Where do i sign up for "Pathfinder for Newbies"? I need to reserve 2 seats.

 

Painting classes seem to be pretty organized, but getting into an RPG game .. well .. seems a bit intimidating. I've gone 2 years now and have yet to sit at an RPG game. Guess I don't see the signups or whatnot.

Yeah, the RPG and some of the table top events, in the past, have been first come first serve. Usually the Reaper people put a list together and when events will be. That list is usually published in the ReaperCon guide at the event and sometimes available via PDF before ReaperCon itself.

 

If your anxious to play or get your role playing game on... watch this post as we hash out the details.

 

I myself am open to running 3 perhaps 4 games at the con. Depending on demand, I might bring back "Master of the Fallen Fortress" and run a couple of those games and a couple new ones.

Yah I've tried to run a semi-serious premade Paizo adventure, well "serious" as you can during a fun weekend. In the end since Paizo's take on goblins are my favorite so far I figured I'd change my look on the game & run that one + I love the Beginner Box as well & thought since there are pretty nice adventures in there + there might be people that are curious about the game & such. I might as well try & help them learn a little about the game.

 

Thanks to Darren's great "fallen fortress" from last year I also decided to put a little more effort into the prep (beyoned what I normally put into the games) try & make everything 3D as possible at least when it comes to maps, objects on the map & such.

 

Come May 1st I will be done & just counting the days till I stay in Boise overnight.

 

Darren, I'd love to play in MoftFF I missed out last year mainly cause I was in prep work for my game + there was no way I could make that early slot last year, ha ha.

 

Reaperwolf, did you decide on what you might run? I recall your post asking what games you should run & such.

 

I've ran & played in RCon games where there was both pay to play (a buck, big deal) or first come first serve. Granted I think the pay to play, reserves your seat but there can be conflict with other events & then first come first serve means the game can be a bit delayed as you wait for that last slot to fill up. Overall I will say I think I like the first come first serve option. You just gotta keep your eye on the schedule or even get together with one of the GMs & "reserve" your spot.

 

Either way with myself, PA & Raphael at least running Pathfinder games. Your sure to get into one of our games (note: My games are not Society based I know Raph's games are & I'm not exactly sure on PA's)

 

Looking forward to the weekend, my 1 weekend of the year I get to play rpgs around table, ha ha.

Haldir,

 

Yes I have and my schedule is lookin' mighty busy but that's cool. I attend cons to run games. I can't post what just yet because we're still hashing out the details but there's some HUGE stuff coming down the pipe so stay tuned. I'm hoping to have the roughs done this week so we can sort out the schedule so ya'll can reserve seats. Trust me, HUGE. I'll also have a modest collection of simple pickup games with me as well probably Lone Wolf from Mongoose, Advance Fighting Fantasy from Arion Games, maybe Starblazer Adventures, and Barbarians of Lemuria. Basically games I won't need lots of stuff to run. Pregens will be provided and rules taught as we play. Stay tuned ya'll!

Sounds great!

 

(Also that reminds me. Pre-gens for my game will be provided as well (you guys are gonna love the "goblin gang". Also if time permits I'd love to roll up BBox characters for the players, if not then the pregens will be used)

Haldir: Thanks for the compliment I am working on a 3D pirate adventure for Pathfinder with Pregen Ninjas, Samurai, Monks, and Wizards (Tians) vs, Pirates (everyone else), with possible boarding action. I am trying to get it done in time to do at ReaperCon. Just a bit of work.

 

ReaperWolf: Just let me know who we three can coordinate and I will run MotFF or whatever you guys need.

 

Excited to collaborate on fun.

Paintmonkey,

 

I believe ReaperBryan is coordinating the schedule but my events are overseen by ReaperRon. I'm no authority figure, I'm just a hired gun.

Does that gun shoot fairy dust?

 

Indeed it does. My reputation preceeds me.

 

May Dresda be with you!

 

And you as well.

Yeah I will of course differ to ReaperBryan and team in all things ... I was more just making sure I was running stuff that wouldn't conflict with other games.

      New 'Expansion' for Too Many Bones.  The game is a lot of fun, but definitely has a pretty steep learning curve when trying to figure out all the dice and timing of things.
    • By kacey3
      Currently on Kickstarter for the next two days!

      I got in on the original release of this game and it is very cool. It's like a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure board game. It is loosely scenario based, but there is a fair amount of randomness and replay-ability in each scenario. I have played the first scenario four times and have yet to win, but had an entirely different experience each time. The most interesting thing to me is the action/health/timing mechanic. There is a serious economy of action in the game and if you aren't very careful with your choices, you will definiltey die on the continent.
       
      Sadly, the production costs on the game are astronomical. At over 1,600 cards, they have said that they will likely never make it to full retail, so apart from this KS and potentially further private sale, we may never see it again. This KS is running until Thu, October 19 2017.

      Sad to say I have decided not to host Fiasco this year. Instead, I'll have 7th Continent by Serious Poulp. It's a drop in/drop out co-op adventure game that harkens back to the days of Choose Your Own Adventure. I've been kind of addicted lately, and since the games can run several hours, but allow players to join and leave at will, it felt like the perfect game for ReaperCon.
       
      See you there!
       
      Incidentally, part of the reason I am bringing 7th Continent is to hype their current Kickstarter, which may be the last time the game is ever available. But I learned today that the KS ends in two days. So if my description sounded interesting, you might want to check out the KS link (http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/77317-7th-continent-co-op-board-game/)

      About this project
      They say there have been eight worlds before ours. Eight times the people of this Earth, over vast millennia, built their civilizations, reaching heights we cannot even fully imagine now. They spoke to the stars, reshaped the creatures of the world, and mastered form and essence. They built cities and machines that have since crumbled to dust, leaving only their barest remnants.
      This is the Ninth World. The people of the prior worlds are gone—scattered, disappeared, or transcended. But their works remain, in the places and devices that still contain some germ of their original function. Some call these magic, but the wise know that these are our legacy. They are our future. They are the...
      Set a billion years in our future, Numenera is a tabletop roleplaying game about exploration and discovery. The people of the Ninth World suffer through a dark age, an era of isolation and struggle in the shadow of the ancient wonders crafted by advanced civilizations now millennia gone. But discovery awaits for those brave enough to seek out the works of the prior worlds. Those who uncover and master the numenera can unlock the powers and abilities of the ancients, and bring new light to a struggling world.
      The original Numenera RPG was launched via a 2012 Kickstarter campaign that shattered every record (at the time) for tabletop RPGs. The corebook has seen four printings, and Numenera is enjoyed by tens of thousands of gamers in an active global community. We have published over 60 supplements and accessories, and released a terrific starter set for new players. The Ninth World has spawned a critically-acclaimed hit computer game, board games, an excellent short film, a line of novels, and other licensed items, and Numenera has been translated into many languages including French, Spanish, Italian, Korean, German, and Portuguese.
      Numenera is a game in which player characters explore the ruins of aeons past to gather amazing treasures and help build a new future for a world struggling in darkness. Since the launch of Numenera in 2013, we have delivered well on the first part, but we’ve always wanted to do a more thorough job exploring that second part. That desire has led us to Numenera 2 and this Kickstarter campaign.
      Through this Kickstarter we’re going to replace the existing corebook with two new corebooks. The first is called Numenera Discovery and the second Numenera Destiny.
      Numenera Discovery will be a book that covers familiar territory; it is basically a revision of the original Numenera corebook. Next summer, we will allow the original corebook to go out of print, and Numenera Discovery will take its place. In Numenera Discovery, you’ll get some revisions to make things clearer and more fun, and to increase the options available to players. Nanos, Jacks, and Glaives will get an overhaul. Many foci and some of the descriptors might see some reworking. You’ll have more options, clearer rules, and perhaps a bit of expansion to the regions of the Steadfast and the Beyond that are covered in the existing corebook.
       
      But Numenera Discovery is not a new edition. We will make virtually no changes to the way the game plays mechanically—and none of those changes affect the way NPCs, creatures, or items like cyphers or artifacts work. We also won’t be making changes to the setting. So if you already play Numenera, your bestiaries, adventures, card decks, character portfolios, and books like Into the Night, Technology Compendium, and Jade Colossus will not be affected by these changes. We will not issue any “second editions” of the existing supporting titles—and if you choose not to get Numenera Discovery, future Numenera supplements will work fine with your existing Numenera corebook. Your ongoing campaign will flow smoothly through the change in corebooks. You will even be able to mix existing characters with those from Numenera Discovery into your game. In fact, the game can be played with both the existing corebook and Numenera Discovery in use at the same game table!
      (One small exception: Numenera Character Options and Numenera Character Options 2 will remain compatible, but will become substantially less relevant following the improvements to characters in Numenera Discovery. We will retire those titles.)
      As excited as we are about Numenera Discovery, we may be even more excited about Numenera Destiny. This title will enable characters to truly become a part of the setting—to help shape the future of the Ninth World. The people of the Ninth World are locked in a medieval-like state, a world of struggle and danger and often suffering in the shadow of the prior worlds’ wonders. Numenera Destiny allows you to build adventures and campaigns in which players don’t just explore the wonders of the past—they utilize them to help lift the Ninth World out of darkness.
      You can make the world a better place. Help a community defend itself from abhumans or the iron wind. Create centers of learning or trade. Innovate, build, and protect. Manage an entire community and help it prosper and grow—or simply create a cool base or vehicle for your adventuring group. Numenera Destiny will allow you to take what you discover and make your mark on history as someone who elevated the Ninth World into the future.
      Adventuring—exploring the weird and wondrous remnants of the prior worlds—remains, of course, at the core of Numenera play. Numenera Destiny will give you new things to do with your discoveries, along with entirely new and epic ways to structure your campaigns. You’ll discover materials, power sources, and treasures that you can utilize in an entirely new, robust crafting and building system. And perhaps best of all, Numenera Destiny will offer three new character types and a number of new descriptors and foci geared toward this innovative style of play.

      Now, MOST of us have a clue where the monsters came from, at least in a rudimentary sense. Tolkien invented the orc as we know it, and the giant spider in fantasy; Robert E. Howard seemed to have a thing for giant snakes. We know that centaurs came from ancient Greece, dwarves and trolls from Scandinavian myth, goblins from Western Europe, dragons from more or less everywhere, and so on. No, don't correct me; I'm bein' general here, and approaching a point.

      I'm kinda curious, though: Where'd some of the weirdier critters come from?

      It is legend among the Gamers and the Geekosphere about the bulette, the owlbear, and the rust monster. 

       The legend has it that Gary Gygax, or perhaps Dave Arneson, back when The Game was just getting off the ground, had difficulty finding miniatures to represent various dungeon denizens. Keep in mind that historical miniatures, at the time, were relatively easy to find, (Knights, Archers, Men At Arms, and characters in general) but fantasy gaming as we know it did not yet exist. No mythological monsters! So Gary or Dave, or whoever... cheated.
       
      And several inhabitants of the first edition (and later) Monster Manual had some rather peculiar origins. In the picture, at center front, you see what became the Bulette, whereas to the left, there's a Rust Monster and to the right, an Owlbear in brilliant yellow.

      In the seventies, you could get these critters in bags in the dime store or on a spinrack in the drugstore, anywhere that sold cheap toys from no-name manufacturers. They were usually marked as dinosaurs, but this particular mob resembles no known prehistoric creatures; the majority of them seem to be knockoffs of monsters from Japanese TV shows like Ultraman, Spectreman, and other ancestors of the Power Rangers. Gary himself spoke about using plastic dinos in lieu of dragons, and the AD&D Monster Manual has the majority of dinos known to pop culture as of 1975. So Gary noticed them at the dime store, bought a bag, and pitted them against his players. And these three creatures became the dreaded Rust Monster, Bulette, and Owlbear, as well as becoming obscure but treasured collectors items among the lords of geekdom.

      Which means that all the owlbear miniatures being made right now are all because of a cheap Taiwanese knockoff toy based on a man in a suit monster who appeared on a Japanese kidshow back in the sixties. Or seventies. Or whatever.

      It could be that this thread will be doomed to obscurity. I rather hope not. I'm hoping that others will add to it with critters that started out as obscure toys that later achieved a sort of immortality as modern gaming mythology. Do add to it. I'm still more'n a little curious.
