Games I'll Be Running at CanGames, 2018

For those who are interested, the early(bird) version of the gaming schedule for this year's CanGames, to be held May 18th - 20th at the Rideau Curling Club here in Ottawa, has been posted up to the website. (You can find the schedule here, as they're using the on-line schedule manager Sched once again this year.) Note that early Registration for CanGames 2018 is due to open on February 24th, so that's a good thing.

Now that they've been confirmed, without further ado, here's the schedule of games that I'll be running at the convention. Since CanGames is using a piece of software that limits the blurb to thirty (30) words, I've included here the full blurb about each scenario. :)

*****
Day 1: The Living Land
Game: Torg Eternity RPG
Time: Friday, 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Number of Players: 6
Description: Six innocent strangers are transformed into heroes as an invading reality crashes down around them. They must work together to survive the strange and terrifying world that now surrounds them; a world of dinosaurs & death where once reliable machines no longer function. A Storm is coming...and it has a name!


The Diplomats of Mars
Game: John Carter of Mars - The Roleplaying Game
Time: Saturday, 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Number of Players: 5
Description: A simple, diplomatic mission to the small Red Martian kingdom of Voninka turns into a matter of survival and getting back to Helium alive! You’ll have to abandon fine words and the arts of diplomacy for a sword and a radium pistol. Are you up to the challenge? An adventure for the new John Carter of Mars Roleplaying Game.


The Tears of Ampharool
Game: Capharnaum - The Tales of the Dragon-Marked RPG
Time: Saturday, 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Number of Players: 5
Description: While travelling through the Desert of Fire, your caravan is surrounded by a great sandstorm and attacked by mysterious, perhaps ghostly assailants... After the storm, the characters see a fabulous palace above the sands, and the promise of adventure. And that's just the beginning! Capharnaum – The Tales of the Dragon-Marked is a fantasy rpg set in an imaginary Arabia-like world, that borrows from the tales of the One Thousand and One Nights, as well as semitic legends and the ancient and mediaeval epics. Flamboyant and mythical, filled with light and thrilling adventure!


Day 1: The Living Land
Game: Torg Eternity RPG
Time: Sunday, 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Number of Players: 6
Description: Six innocent strangers are transformed into heroes as an invading reality crashes down around them. They must work together to survive the strange and terrifying world that now surrounds them; a world of dinosaurs & death where once reliable machines no longer function. A Storm is coming...and it has a name!
*****

For those interested in playing in any of these games, there are six (6) player spots each open for the two Torg Eternity RPG sessions, and five (5) player spots open for the John Carter of Mars - The Roleplaying Game game session and Capharnaum - The Tales of the Dragon-Marked RPG session. So if you're interested in playing in one of the games I'm running at CanGames 2018 this year, please sign up early for the games, as slots may not be available at the convention itself.

Hope to see folks at the convention! :)

I thought you weren't going to be doing cons anymore. Is this the point I'm supposed to clonk you over the noggin and remind you of that?

LOL! Nope, dear...

CanGames is the local Ottawa gaming convention that takes place every year on the Victoria Day weekend. I pretty much always look forward to that one.

I had this game. Attempting to play this without being
just high as a mf is not recommended.

This is fine, but I'm tempted to get in touch with him, because I have something that seems to have been utterly forgotten, a maddeningly lo-res image of a Tékumel Monopoly board drawn by M A R Barker!  It appears to be from the 1970s, probably shortly before E P T came out.
