CanGames 2015 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...

Game: River of Heaven RPG
Time: Friday, 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Number of Players: 5
Description: Waking from Vitrification is never a pleasant experience, but it is an unavoidable part of interstellar travel. With your first waking thoughts comes the usual wave of nausea. Several other cryopods around you are already open, with other individuals looking as dazed and confused as you. Long moments pass, during which several thoughts occur to you: You are in zero-G. The medical team are nowhere to be seen. The throbbing pain behind your eyes is getting stronger. Something is very, very wrong...

Game: Primeval RPG
Time: Saturday, 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Number of Players: 5
Description: A simple camping trip and some botanical research, right? Yeaaaahhhh... That was a hell of a wrong turn. There's no road, it's a very different forest, and oh, yeah, it's millions of years ago and there are dinosaurs chasing you.

Good Fences Make Good Neighbours
Game: Chill 3rd Edition RPG
Time: Saturday: 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Number of Players: 5
Description: Reuben Hall went missing last night. The detective on the case, sensing something paranormal, contacted SAVE. The first 24 hours are crucial - can you find the missing boy before the Unknown is finished with him? A scenario for the new CHILL RPG, 3rd Edition from Growling Door Games.

The Last Witness
Game: River of Heaven RPG
Time: Sunday, 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Number of Players: 5
Description: Almost a century ago, against the better advice of the Hegemony, the Solar Witnesses dispatched the Revelation - an antimatter torch ship - on a pilgrimmage to the Machine Civilisation Polis in the Altair star system. It It never came back. That is, until now. You are members of a freelance search and rescue team hired by the Solar Witnesses to salvage their ship, and find out exactly what happened out there.

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 are still bothering me (treatment will finally start later in May), 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. :) Finally, I've got my insulin therapy to consider at the convention, as well as the eating habits. I'm going to try and eat as healthy as I can, but will be monitoring my blood sugar a bit more carefully. Wouldn't want to faint during the convention, or worse, now would I? Add my allergies to this mix, and well, the weekend should be interesting to say the least. Hopefully fun as well.

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 2015. 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. :)
