Glory is fleeting but obscurity lasts forever
The above quote by Napoleon Bonaparte is also the theme of this year’s convention. Yes. we do have a theme. We had one last year, too.
‘This way to certain doom’.
That was the best kept secret at the Con.
Table Top Bingo
If you were in attendance last year, you may remember playing Bingo with us, when you signed in at the door we gave you a bingo card. When certain things came up during game play that reflected the theme (like a total party kill or winning out over impossible odds), you marked the respective square on your card. When you won, we gave a button with a little cartoony Grim Reaper. Yay whimsy!!!
An Intriguing Fiasco
We’re continuing the bingo this year and introducing something new as well. We (the commoner ‘we’ here) are going to write a Fiasco playset. For those of you who don’t know Fiasco is a story game by Jason Morningstar. I love the game and will be running it again (and again...and again...and again) this year. A playset is a list of story parameters that frame the narrative. We (the royal we) will have posters up on the walls for IConners to write down suggestions for the playset. On Sunday, if all goes well (and if it doesn’t, you really only have yourselves to blame) we shall play a game of ‘An Intriguing Fiasco’.
