Yep, I decided to create my own gaming convention next year (July 22nd - 24th, 2022). It's called Venger Con!

Way back in 2005, I organized a Cthulhu Mythos / H.P. Lovecraft convention in the very same city, Madison WI. That went really well. So, I'm hoping Venger Con is also successful. It'll focus on old-school, OSR, and traditional RPGs along with workshops on relevant topics (GMing, playing, writing adventures, and so on).

Here's the Tabletop Events link: https://tabletop.events/conventions/venger-con-2022

Hope you can make it!

Now, that we're in 2022, I'd like to bump this thread. Venger Con will be three days of pure, unadulterated old-school, OSR, and traditional RPGs! If you know what you want to run or play, feel free to post it here in this thread. ;)

Thanks,

Way too far away for me, but it might be a good idea to post the draft schedule if you have one yet?

I will have to see how my child custody battle turns out before I can commit. (Edit to say: I’m fighting to get more time with her)

I don't have much at the moment, unfortunately. 14 attendees. A guy running his own RPG, some AD&D, a few speculative promises, and then I plan on running at least 3 sessions of Cha'alt using Crimson Dragon Slayer D20.

As soon as more people sign-up and GMs tell me what they're running, I can put a schedule together. Worst case scenario, there's about 40 attendees (that's my break-even point for putting on the convention) with only a couple GMs and I have to run non-stop Cha'alt for everybody throughout the entire convention. That would be crazy... but also kind of awesome!

Thanks,
