Today is Free RPG Day.

So don’t forget to go down to your local rpg or hobby shoppe, and see if they’re giving away the various Free RPG Day quick-start rules and adventures for any of your favourite games.

And don’t forget to pass the word on Free RPG Day to folks. This is the perfect opportunity to get some of those non-gamer friends and loved ones involved with the hobby, and to introduce them to some great rpg systems out there.

And a Happy Free RPG Day to all! 🙂

Geez, it’s the Friday before CanGames already.

This means that the 2018 edition of CanGames, the local Ottawa gaming convention being held at the Rideau Curling Club, is merely seven (7) (!!) days away, as it begins on Friday (the 18th of May). Hope to see folks from Ottawa and the surroundings, as well as folks from farther away, attending the convention.

And here’s just a reminder of what I’ll be running this year at CanGames.

*****
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!

The Burden of Glory
Game: Torg Eternity RPG
Time: Sunday, 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Number of Players: 6
Description: The Delphi Council has located a stela and dispatched Storm Knights to uproot it and restore a zone to Core Earth. Along the way, a new opportunity tempts your team. Could anything be more important than pushing back the High Lords? (Note that this is an Infiniverse event; the choices players make here impact how the Possibility Wars unfold in the future.)
*****

Hope to see some of my LJ, WordPress, and Twitter friends and others (even some newbies, of course) at some of the games I’ll be running next weekend. 🙂

To be honest, it’s taken me some time to decide what I want to sell this year, but…

Once more, with the convention season just around the corner here in Ottawa, I’ve decided to sell off some more of the roleplaying games that I have, okay, quite a few actually. These will be sold off at this year’s CanGames here in Ottawa the weekend of May 18th. I figured that I would post up the stuff that I’m selling to my blog so folks have a heads-up on what I’m selling and all (and anyone who’s coming to the convention can make me an offer or three).

So, here’s the first batch of stuff that I’m selling.


Hillfolk RPG and Blood on the Snow supplement book (also includes the complete, shrinkwrapped card deck and smalll bag of tokens)


River of Heaven (SF) Roleplaying Game


Shadows of Esteren Book 1 – Universe (Rulebook) and the Loch Varn Tile set (shrinkwrapped)

It’s taken longer than I expect, but it’s finally done.

I finally managed to get SteveR to help me out, and get the photographs done for the various items that I’ll be selling at CanGames 2018, so starting tomorrow I’ll be posting up various blog entries with photos of the various things I’ll be selling at the convention in May.

Hopefully, some folks will be interested in a few of these items, and might arrange to buy them from me in advance, receiving said items paying for them at the convention when I see folks there, or earlier.

So be aware that I’ll be posting this stuff up to the blog starting tomorrow.

It’s that time of year again! 🙂

CanGames 2018 registration has opened!

So it’s time to register for a membership at the convention, sign up for a few games at the convention, and get into the gaming spirit that will culminate in the convention in just under three (3) months.

I just got back home from Fandom II here in Ottawa, and took care of my registration for the convention there. I’ll be running four (4) game sessions at the convention; you can check this blog entry of mine for the list and full description of the stuff I’ll be running there!

Hope to see you there!

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. 🙂

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! 🙂

Well, as noted in this journal entry, I received my invitation to submit games that I’d like to run at CanGames 2018 back in early January. Yesterday evening, I finally submitted the last of the games that I’m planning to run at the convention the weekend of May 18th to 20th this year.

I had already submitted games for Capharnaum – Tales of the Dragon-Marked and Torg Eternity, but I made it official last night: I’ll also be running a session of the soon to be published John Carter of Mars – The Roleplaying Game. Yes, that’s four game sessions I’ll be running.

And I can’t wait to run all four of them! 🙂
