Way back the start of the year, I mused about the possibility of having a get together here in Toronto for old school RPGs. Well, thanks to Chris Cunnington, it's definitely happening this summer, at the Lillian H. Smith Library downtown on August 12 and 13, with four sessions of gaming spread over the two days of the mini-con.
Right now, there are sessions for AD&D, Bushido, Champions, Labyrinth Lord, Pendragon, RuneQuest, and Traveller, among others, including two sessions in my Dwimmermount megadungeon using house-ruled OD&D. Also, Ed Greenwood will be running a 2e game set in his Forgotten Realms campaign world and I have to admit I'm really looking forward to having the chance to sit down at the table to play with him.
The cost of registration is $20 CDN until July 1. So, whether you're interested in playing or refereeing, you can still join in on the fun. This is the inaugural year of the mini-con, but it won't be the last. Here's your chance to participate in what will, I hope, become an annual event here in Toronto.
I'll be posting more details about my sessions in the next few days, in case anyone is thinking of coming and is curious about what I plan to offer on the two four-hour blocks where I'll be refereeing.
