NTRPG Con X (2018)

NTRPG Con X's scheduled for June 7-10, 2018 at the Westin in Irving, TX, right near the Dallas/Fort Worth Intl Airport. We really had a great time this year and I hope everyone can attend next year. If you're already thinking of coming, are you planning to run anything? If so, what and when? As usual, let's coordinate as much as possible.

Registration's open at the main site and the Westin's taking reservations at the convention rate (links below). Doug and Mike are offering an early bird discount until Oct. 31, so convention tickets are $60, down from $80. Plus, they're only offering 420 spots. Would not be surprised if it sells out this year.

Would not surprise me either, but I just checked and the full weekend tickets are set at $80. 

Either way, it's worth it. \m/

Did you click all the way through, Hoyt? From the main site, click Con / Game Registration, which takes you to Table Top, where you click Buy Badges, then Buy Attendee, then after filling out the form info on that page, click the little blue text at the bottom that says "Early Bird Discount (20% off)" right above the Add to Cart button. If that doesn't work, let me know.

Submitted events:

Schedule
Thurs 1PM-6PM - Death in Every Shadow

Fri 1PM-6PM - Crash at Corpse Creek
Fri 8PM-whenever - Foolsgrave

Sat 1PM-6PM - The Strange Tale of Crystal Point
Sat 8PM-whenever - Foolsgrave

Descriptions
Crash at Corpse Creek. A strange object has fallen from the stars, crashing into the cold, haunted swamp of Corpse Creek. Several curious trappers from a nearby camp went to investigate, but none have returned. The remainder have hired your group to find their friends, but they warn you that Corpse Creek teems with the living dead and that its strange bugs have awakened early from their winter freeze, including some giant varieties never seen before in Hyperborea. A site-based adventure for up to six player characters of levels 3-5.

Death in Every Shadow. Some foul abomination has crawled out of Khromarium's ancient underbelly, feeding on men, women and children alike. Now it has crept into your uncle's cellar, taken him and disappeared back into the darkness below! Desperate to save your last living relative, or at least preserve your claim on his wealth, you enter the city's dank tunnels, where death lurks in every shadow. A site-based adventure for up to six player characters of levels 1-3.

Foolsgrave. Khromarium's mysterious spiraling towers of black gneiss predate mankind, an ever-present reminder of how strange and alien things once ruled Hyperborea. During the Festival of Plutonia, a sombre commemoration of death, darkness and the all-consuming void, one such tower's impenetrable doors slowly creaked open, admitting anyone brave enough to descend into its depths. Many have entered, but few have returned - some with wealth overflowing, others simply mad, drooling and babbling. Locals now refer to the labyrinth as Foolsgrave. A megadungeon crawl for up to eight player characters of levels 1-3.

The Strange Tale of Crystal Point. In the far reaches of Hyperborea's Crab Archipelago, lies a small, mountainous island known as Crystal Point. Passing sailors have recently seen a crimson glow in Crystal Point's waters, beams of reddish-brown light shining up from its steep cliffs and frequent lightning storms overhead. One famous sage believes Crystal Point may hold the ruins of a lost Atlantean colony - and its secrets! Eager for adventure and treasure, you agreed to explore the island and, after a long journey, have finally set foot on its rocky beach. A site-based adventure for up to six player characters of levels 7-9.

Re: NTRPG Con X (2018)

Doug has said that submitted/approved events are already becoming available for pre-purchase for badge holders. As with last year, half of the seats of any event become available for $5 until March 30. After that, any unsold seats from the first half and the remaining half of the game's seats becoming available for "free" on April 15, 12AM CST. Remember, that means staying up late on the night of April 14, then at 12AM CST, loading up your cart ASAP and crossing your fingers.

He said he would be approving any submitted events as they come in, so might be worthing checking their site periodically to see what new things have become available.

A New one....sounds fun!

Thanks! My hope is to create a decent-sized exploration area for low level adventurers, though beause of convention time constraints, this event features a single "mission" within that framework.
