Con of the North during Superbowl? Whoa.

I am somewhat dismayed that they scheduled '10 convention during Superbowl weekend. I understand that the first three weekends of February are tough. Both Valentine's Day and Superbowl, which is a national holiday for each of the sexes and who do you piss off? But, I will run a few events on Friday and Saturday and then skip out Sunday due to Superbowl. This may get me some good will from the wife too!

Here are the events I am going to run, take a peek and tell what you think!


Title: The Shadow Out of Memory

Game: A Penny for My Thoughts

Description: You were discovered in the aftermath of a great battle against a terrible unknown beyond the understanding of normal men with no memory of yourself intact. Fortunately, there is the Orphic Institute for Advanced Studies whose break-through research into memory recovery has donated their time to helping you. The real problem is whether you want to or not. This is a story game with hints of Cthulhu in which players take the roll of amnesiacs recovering from an incident. Mature only.

Timeslot: Requested: Friday 6-10


Title: The Silver Sparrow

Game: Swashbucklers of the 7 Skies

Description: A crash landing has you stranded on what appears barren sky island, or is it? An ancient treasure from a dead kingdom may lead to salvation. Do you have the courage to use it? You know any kingdom in the Skies will kill for the artifact, so where do you go from here? Enter the world of swashbuckling, pirates, skyships and 7 Skies. A shared narrative RPG based on the PDQ system.

Timeslot: Requested: Saturday 10-2


Well, I will also be doing a pickup game of Baron Munchausen at some point on Friday or Saturday night. I won't be around Sunday more than likely due to Super Bowl. I look forward to seeing people and will love to chat shop with anyone.
