Michigan's U-Con Starts Next Week! Are You Game?


Hey gang,

Just a reminder that Michigan's U-Con Gaming Convention starts next week and runs November 14-16! I'm really looking forward to my first time at this just-across-the-Ohio-border convention and am looking forward to a rollickin' good time. Got lots on my plate for the convention, including:
  • I'll be manning the Goblinoid Games / Pacesetter LTD booth in the Vendor's Hall, so stop by and see what we have for sale! Labyrinth Lord, Mutant Future, Cryptworld, Rotworld, and a dozen other titles and supplements will be available for purchase. (Ask nicely and I'll run you through a quick Pacesetter adventure of your choice!)
  • Enjoy old-school games? This year's U-Con hosts an OSR track filled with classic games (and games that embrace such gameplay), such as Swords & Wizardry, Dungeon Crawl Classics, Labyrinth Lord, Mutant Future, AD&D 1e, Tekumel, OSRIC, Cryptworld, Stars Without Number, and Mutant Crawl Classics! Come getcher old school on!
  • I'll be running two games during the event: Friday at 8 p.m., it'll be Mutant Future, "Gimme Shelter III: Down to Earth" -- NOW HIRING: Barter John needs six scavengers to investigate last month's meteorite impact crater. Rumors of extraterrestrial infestation are to be ignored. Any retrieved artifacts will be split 60-40. And Saturday at 8 p.m., it'll be Cryptworld, "Forget-Me-Not" -- Recent murders are identical to those committed by the "Paul Bunyon Butcher" 40 years ago. However, the original killer remains behind bars. Has a copycat surfaced, or is it something more sinister?
  • Kinda unclear on what the OSR is, exactly? Stop by Friday at 6 p.m. for a roundtable discussion titled "What Is This OSR Thing Anyway?" as Doug Kovac, Jim Wampler, Bill Barsh, and I discuss what the OSR means to each of us.

The U-Con Program Guide is now available for download if you'd like to see what's going on...or what you're going to miss! And if you can't make it, stay tuned here at The Savage AfterWorld as I'll be live-blogging from the event each day with news, reviews, tales, and photos!
