Well, today is the start of CanGames, the local gaming convention here in Ottawa. While I’m not working a day job these days, I’ve managed to spend a bit of time since I got up putting together some of the stuff that I need for the convention.

Once more, for those who are going to the convention or who might be interested, here’s the listing of the games that I’m running with times and descriptions included…

*****
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.)
*****

I’ve also got a bunch of stuff that I’ll be selling at the convention this year (you can see the list of games for sale in this blog entry, and hopefully I can sell this stuff for some reasonable sums, as I could use a bit of money for later in the year.

Health-wise, I have a couple of problems that I’ve gone into in other posts, so won’t dwell on here. Since I am have walking problems because of the diabetes, don’t be surprised if I take off my shoes at times during the course of the convention. The weekend should be interesting, to say the least.

I won’t be posting any blog entries during the weekend, so folks will have to wait for when I’ve got time at the start of next week and into the week itself for reports and the like (not to mention any photos I do take) about CanGames 2018. I may tweet from the convention on my mobile phone over the weekend, and will hopefully take a few photos as well of stuff for posting here and elsewhere.

In any event, I hope I’ll see some of you at the convention. Since you’ve seen the photo of me here on my blog, you’ll know who to look for. The hair’s a bit more gray, and there’s a bit less of it, that’s all. 🙂

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.
