CanGames 2014 Begins Today

Well, today is the start of CanGames, the local gaming convention here in Ottawa. I'll be spending the rest of the morning getting ready to go to the convention, putting together all the stuff that I need for the con, among other things.

Once more, for those who are going to the convention or who might be interested, here's the listing of the games that I'm running with times and descriptions included:

The Medallion of Ssthauga
Game: Atlantis: The Second Age RPG (Khepera Edition)
Time: Friday, 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Number of Players: 5
Description: When a friend is killed and then cultists come after you for the medallion that he gave you, what strange and terrifying secrets lurk on the streets of Atlantis and what ancient evil might be on the rise again? Sword & Sorcery adventure in the Antediluvian world.

Mist Over Storforshei
Game: Yggdrasill RPG
Time: Saturday, 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Number of Players: 5
Description: When the former Jarl, presumed dead, returns after 10 years, your characters mount an expedition to determine what happened to the rest of his expedition. What you find draws you into a matter of revenge between two age-old foes that could result in the destruction of all you hold dear. Can you save Storforshei?

The Curse of Maugr-Threnn
Game: Atlantis: The Second Age RPG (Khepera Edition)
Time: Sunday, 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Number of Players: 5
Description: When several children vanish from a local village, naturally your characters take it upon themselves to investigate the disappearances. (That's what Heroes do, right?) What evil is at work here? Sword & Sorcery adventure in the Antediluvian world.

I've also got a bunch of stuff that I'll be selling at the convention this year (you can see the list of games for sale at this blog entry), and hopefully I can sell this stuff for some reasonable sums, as I could use a bit of money for later in the year.

Health-wise, I have a couple of problems. My left ankle and leg have been bothering on and off for the last year or so, and with the swelling in the ankle having gotten worse over that time, I've been struggling to walk. Not to mention put a pair of shoes on. I have no idea how well I'll be walking at the convention this year, but we'll see what happens. Just please, don't step on me if you're coming to CanGames this year. :) The other injury that's bothering me has been my upper left chest since I had my little accident on Sunday. Using my arm and any movements involving that part of my body hurt like hell, and I can't raise the left arm above the level of my shoulder due to the pain. Add my allergies to this mix, and well, the weekend should be interesting to say the least. Hopefully fun as well. I just hope that things go well, and that with luck, I'm all right when the weekend is over. ::knock on wood::

I won't be spending a lot of time on the computer this weekend, if any, so folks will have to wait for when I have spare time for the post-convention report for stuff about CanGames 2014. I may tweet or post an LJ blurb or two from the convention on my mobile phone over the weekend, and will hopefully take a few photos as well of stuff for posting here and elsewhere.

In any event, I hope I'll see some of you at the convention. Since you've seen the photo of me here on my blog, you'll know who to look for. The hair's a bit more gray, and there's a bit less of it, that's all. :)
