Hyperborea: Ruinous Palace of the Metegorgos [snip]
This adventure definitely has some adult themes and content and is not for the squeamish. Written by Evey Lockhart and published by In Search of Games.

Link?  I didn't see any info on their web site or FB pages.

Allan.

Here's the DTRPG link: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/208237/Ruinous-Palace-of-the-Metegorgos

Ran this in my home group's game in the early spring--actually right around last year's GaryCon. Our one-line recaps: "Murder by Crotch Light! And that tomato plant hasn't done anything yet--and you know when it does it's gonna be cool!" "Old High Thunder Hag, a language rich in information density and pathos and surprisingly useless against tigers."

Edit: It was an Ennie finalist, for what it's worth.

Re: Gary Con X (2018)

Just added a pair of AS&SH games to the on-grid lineup, but not set in Hyperborea:

Thursday 10AM: Something Stinks in Lankhmar
Friday 10AM: Raid on Spinecastle Keep, a Greyhawk adventure.

Nice! I've heard more often of the setting being used with other rules systems, not so often what you are doing -- using the rules with other settings, but I think it's cool, especially considering that I often pull out the old 1e Lankhmar book for default city play when I need resources on the fly for places like Khromarium and Port Zangerios.

Sounds cool!  I'll take descriptions if you have them.  I put them on the listing.

Thanks!

That's great, francisca! Wish I could play in the Lankhmar game.

Here you go:

Thursday 10AM: Something Stinks in Lankhmar
Something always stinks in Lankhmar, but something out there is more wretched than usual. The gentry won't stand for this, and you an your plucky pals have been charged with rooting out the problem. This is an adventure set in Lankhmar, using the 2nd edition of the Astonishing Swordsmen and Sorcerers RPG. 

Friday 10AM: Raid on Spinecastle Keep, a Greyhawk adventure
CY 563: The Bone March has fallen to evil, excepting Spinecastle Keep, the ancestral home of the Marquis of Spinecastle the ruler of the Bone March. The Marquis and his family are besieged, and need to be extracted, as they hold vital information needed to combat the tyranny of the evil humanoid hordes and their plans to sack the surrounding kingdoms. Will you succeed in extracting the Marquis?

Re: Gary Con X (2018)

Unfortunately,  I will now be unable to attend Gary Con.  My oldest is getting married at that time.  I should be there.

Re: Gary Con X (2018)

I am attending Gary Con for the first time this year and am working on travel arrangements.  It seems like the most sensible thing to do is to fly into Chicago and rent a car to drive to Lake Geneva.  Is anyone else here doing that that would want to share a car?

Agh! The most unkindest cut of all! Does your oldest not understand What Is Good?

Ah, well. Congrats, Morgan! We'll have to figure out a way to get some gaming in with you and the NYC crew before next year!

Depends on where you come from. We usually fly to MKE and split a shuttle from the airport there. User-friendly experience all around. Check out the GaryCon forums, where ride sharing is fairly avidly discussed.

Re: Gary Con X (2018)

Yes, family first, Morgan! You will be missed, but I'm happy for your daughter and her husband-to-be. And I hope their first child be a masculine child.

I'm hearing Luca's voice saying that in my head.

Re: Gary Con X (2018)

My events have been scheduled. I updated the master list in the other thread.

In Umbrage Taken (DMPrata, Thu. 12 P.M. – 6 P.M, Fri. 12 P.M. – 6 P.M.) A Zangeriosan emissary asks the party to undertake an urgent mission to the Savage Boreal Coast. The last ship to drop off supplies at some new settlements found the first village burnt to the ground. A second village was perfectly intact, but deserted. No survivors were found. The Governor needs a group of adventurers to find out what happened. A high-level adventure adapted from “Terror in the Tropics” by Roy Rowe, first published in WGR2 Treasures of Greyhawk.

Yes.  I take two of my daughters with me.  I plan on running at least one AS&SH event and then Jonny Quest on Friday night for Hollow Earth Expedition's Den of Ubiquity..

Not trying to pile on, Morgan, but Manny wanted me to pass along how sad he and the rest of the crew are that you won't be at GaryCon. Maybe we can road-trip down your way this year or figure out a way to get you up here for some gaming.
