I've committed to run two demo sessions at Ubercon this November.Â For those of you in theÂ New Jersey/New York/Pennsylvania area who have never attended a game convention, come on out and visit me!Â I'll be running demos from 1 pm to 6 pm on Saturday (November 3rd), and 12 noon to 5 pm on Sunday (November 4th).Â Sign up information should be available on the site in the next few days, as I just finalized everything with the Ubercon team.Â This is the description of the demo:
â€œThere is a war coming.Â A war that will redefine who we are as a people.Â A war that will determine whether we are worthy of our dragon blood, or no different than the other races.Â It is a war we will fight against each other, and victory will not be determined by which side wins, but if any of us are left standing at all.â€Â
Krakodon Shaman Lakjaâ€™tharnukuÂ
Ever since the destruction of the ancient city of Dazu, the Krakodons have struggled against both their external enemies and each other.Â Now mystics and shamans speak in riddles of a glowing orb left behind during the fall of Dazu.Â Does this orb hold the key to the raceâ€™s supremacy, or its destruction?ÂÂ
You are one of the chosen of your tribe, charged with the duty of entering the ancient ruins and locating the orb.Â But yours is not the only tribe looking for the relic, and you may have to spill the blood of your brothers before the end.Â There are also the rumors of demon-worshippers lurking in the ruins, seeking the orb for their own ends.Â And donâ€™t forget the Great Dragon of Dazu, who will no doubt be unkind to any seeking to remove a treasure from his domain.Â
Neiyar returns to Ubercon with a high-powered adventure that goes into the heart of the legendary ruins of Dazu.Â Explore the ruins.Â Wage battle against demons and their followers.Â Discover long lost secrets.Â And at all costs, avoid the ravenous fury of the Great Dragon that prowls the area!Â
Players will be given pre-generated characters.Â All they will need is a pencil, some dice, and their 3.5 Playerâ€™s Handbook.Â Prizes will be awarded for best roleplaying.Â
I've always been a fan of Ubercon, not just because it is close to me.Â Unlike the "big cons" that are more about sell, sell, sell, Ubercon is all about playing games.Â So if you need something to do that weekend, come play at Ubercon.
