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.

Said it before but I'd like 2 spots, maybe even 3 if time/space is allowed.

 

Pathfinder "We are Goblins

 

& Pathfinder Beginner Box, ie Pathfinder for newbies (this one I'd like twice if possible)

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.

      Not specific to any particular campaign or RPG - just a place for folks to share adventure seeds for urban fantasy campaigns, since it came up on another thread.
       
      [Dark] The players are hired by a necromancer to learn who murdered one of his corpses. She was engaged to be wed the day before he purchased her remains, and is not happy about being dead....


       
      [Humorous] The Goblin bard and his band has cast Irresistible dance, and to the players' horror... it is a polka.

      ATTENTION TABLE TOP RPGers!
       
      It's been a while, so time to start up a group of gamers again.
       
      I will be starting a Game Session ... once a month for 4, 6 or more hours at a session starting the week of my birth ... March's fourth week somewhere between the 19th and the 25th.  So this is an open invitation to any within driving range of Seneca Falls/Waterloo, NY area who are interested in participating in a month-to-month campaign. 
       

       
      This will be a Roleplaying Game with emphasis on the story and roleplaying. Naturally there will be some fighting, adventuring, exploring, thieving, and the like depending on the system chosen. I have two systems that I would like to run .. the first is one I have been sitting on for sometime and features a much more reasonable method of gaming than any system I've played and the second I have just acquired that is also a new style of system for me.
       

       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      DUNGEON WORLD
      Regardless of your rolls, the story moves forward ... it just might be more complicated than it was a moment before. Fantasy setting with D&D like characters.
       
       

       
       
       
      MOUSE GUARD
      Based on the comic/graphic novels of the same name. You are mice. Yup, standard size, like in the cover image of the book. But you are one of the Mouse Guard and sworn to protect Lockhaven and the Mouse Territories. The game uses a success dice (d6) system from Burning Wheel.
       
       
      So, if you are interested in joining this gaming adventure, reply or message me to get an invite to the Facebook Group.

      I finally finished by Giant Rats Dozen from Bones I.
      I tried to give them fur texture.  The texture from the cast was too light for drybrushing, so it's essentially free hand.
      The gray rats have some red and green glazed into the shadows to give them a little diseased feel.
      I spent WAY too much time painting these...
      Mold lines on the actual rat (as opposed to the base) were too tricky to try to get rid of, especially in light of the subject matter.  They’re rats.  A lot of them.

      I have a question for you, if you're interested, and if you're willing to answer it. You can read my rambling explanation, or just skip to the picture of the d20 below if I'm boring you.

      So I've been reading some blogs, blogs of Big Time Game Writers and Designers, right? I like to keep up on the history of the hobby, even while it's happening.

      And I have discovered a thing: The Older Cousin Model.

      Y'see, ever since D&D really started to hit the big time, the marketing people have been trying to figure out new ways to grow the game, grow the market, sell more units. It's what they do. Particularly under WotC, and ESPECIALLY with Hasbro. And they discovered an unusual thing.

      Roleplaying games aren't like other games. A child sees a Star Wars Rebels boardgame, he's attracted to it because of the cartoon show, but if he's going to play the GAME, he has to sit down, read the rules, figure out how it works. If I find a Game Of Thrones card game, I do the same thing, although it's a safe bet the rules are lengthier and more complex. But the same is true of both myself and the Star Wars child: we see the game, get interested in the subject or license, buy or are given this game, we sit down and figure it out, and try to interest our friends in playing it with us. Sometimes Star Wars kid will play the game at his friend's house first, but like as not, he'll see it on a shelf and want it, without ever having played it before.
       
      ....................but not RPGs.
       
      Apparently, based on market research? Nearly all RPG players are taught to play by an actual human, THEN start jonesing for their own copy of the game. They have to catch the fever from existing RPG players before developing an interest in the hobby form. Apparently, AFTER you've mastered an RPG, THEN you might develop an interest in other RPGs or RPG genres, and you might, upon mastering D&D, get interested in one of Fantasy Flight's Star Wars RPGs, or a White Wolf LARP, or even just Pathfinder or Starfinder, and you might buy a copy, read the rules, and start your own game...

      ...but statistically, MOST of us apparently started out as acolytes at someone else's table.
       


      They call it "The Older Cousin Model," in that most of us learned it from an older cousin, a sibling, kid we went to school with, whatever. The point is that most of us were TAUGHT, as opposed to doping it out ourselves. It's a social phenomenon as opposed to seeing it on a shelf or in an ad, and that apparently complicates the marketing of the product.

      And that got my attention.

      Y'see, I doped it out myself.

      I was all of like, eleven, and reading this magazine, Rolling Stone's College Life, because, hey, college was far cooler than anything MY peer group was doing, right? And there was this article on this game that was sweeping the country's college campuses at the time, Dungeons and Dragons, where you could take the role of a barbarian or wizard, go slay dragons, become more powerful, have a magic sword, accumulate gold, build a castle... anything you wanted. The nerd equivalent of a permanent floating craps game in the dorm's TV room. It caught my interest, and the next time my immediate ancestors chose to visit civilization, I picked up a Holmes Basic Set at Spencer's Gifts... and there, all my weirdities began. Upon learning how to play the game, and finding others who were interested, everything else followed. Cool college guys used miniatures? Plainly, miniatures must be obtained... and painted. Some of these people play other games by SPI and Avalon Hill? Hm, this should be looked into. Hey, other RPGs like Traveller and Runequest? Investigate!
       
      But I had to work it out myself. I taught some friends to play afterwards, and the game took on a life of its own after that... but I was the one who lit the fire.

      Upon thinking about it? Everyone else I ever played RPGs with? Either I taught them, or they already knew... having been introduced to the hobby by a friend or relative. Apparently, being a gamer is more a contagious paradigm than one imposed by one's environment or advertising.

       ...and this is what brings me to come bother YOU people. How did you get involved in RPGs? How did you learn to play? How did you develop the interest?

      Was there an older cousin, sibling, friend, role model? Were you influenced by marketing or advertising? Trip over it at a comic shop? Encounter a screaming mob of beardos, flinging dice and invective at each other?

      I'd like to know.
