I've had no luck contacting anyone from the C&C Society concerning more 'Con' friendly adventures. I'd be happy to jump in and help GM any games that TLG has setup to run and/or expand the amount of offerings of anything being run. Otherwise looks like I may be out in getting something suitable setup to register to run this year.

Dbush, I seem to recall a digital-only adventure that's relatively short. It's "They Call Him Guff". Should be available for a buck or two tops on rpgnow, as I recall.

Decided to wander through my stash of adventures and am looking hard at DCC #31 "The Transmuter's last Touch". It is a D20 system and pretty short when compared to most other adventures. I'd have to tweek it of course to make it fit C&C but it may the answer.

Ok GenCon fans...we are coming up on the big event!

Who will be there Wednesday evening? Is anyone up for some off-grid action Wednesday night? I think most of us got get a drink once we get in town, and then fall into some black hole until Thursday at noon; but I say lets get this party started.

I will post off grid games, times and places on the Facebook meeting place. If you want to run a game and need players, contact me.

Sorry, guys. Looks like not only will I not be running this year, but there's a pretty good probability that I won't even be able to attend. Money is very badly tight this year. :(

Don't feel bad, I anted to take my son this year for his first visit but when I looked at the cost for flights and rooms and food let alone the stuff you know I would buy in the dealer rooms, well the total was more than I could swing this year.

We all have to do what we have to do.

Tyler Morrison did you know the games you put on have Generic tickets only at Gencon?

Means a person can't get tickets for it during registration. Unless you did it on purpose.

It appears to have been a mistake on my part. I've sent two e-mails to rectify the matter. Their events manager has apparently had some sort of illness, causing him to only be in the office sporadically. I have e-mailed another individual for immediate assistance, but she may not handle gaming matters. Hopefully, this will be rectified soon. No official responses yet. My bad. :oops:

The problem has been rectified. Clovis and Ben are signed up for one of the games. Another GC attendee put me on to this issue. He's hoping to sign up if possible. Two games, and I'll take as many as 8 players.

Can't seem to locate your games on signup Tyler. Hopefully, they will come back online soon. I'd like to get in at least one C&C game with fellow board members! Clovis... I'm looking at you again, brother. ;)

Not desperate. Simply expanding my horizons. At this point, I think it's time I played on one of your games. What's it been, 7-8 years now?

Bummer. I was only able to get into "The Looking Stone". I was surprised to only see 5 C&C games up. I'll most likely run one next year, but since this is my first Gen Con (and convention in general) I thought I'd take it all in.

That is weird. I believe there were 29 C&C events on the event schedule at Gary Con this year.

Dungeoneer, has my Haunted Highlands: Mythnoc Cairns game already filled up? I thought there were some slots still available. I'll have to check. I don't remember how many games were on the schedule, but most are being gm'd by company employees, or related individuals. Jason Vey has two Amazing Adventure games on the schedule as well. We rely on other GM's as well, to help increase our presence. We tried to put as many on the schedule as possible, but we're also running the booth. :). There may be some pick up games as well. We'll try to do what we can.

You'll find that some games are listed as Castles & Crusades, and others are Castles and Crusade. That may affect your search results.

Yes, it's full, but it's no big deal, I was just slightly surprised. I'm certainly not griping, and hope it's not taken that way. I will certainly try to run a game or two next year to help out.

Still catching the same results with all sorts of permutations. Just FYI.

Dungeoneer, I didn't take it that way. I'm glad you had interest in it. I guess my Looking Stone and Mythnoc Cairn games filled up very quickly after GenCon rectified my mistake. I imagine they would have filled up on the first day, if not for that. People are hungry for gaming, I guess. Especially, when they sign up for sessions with the "legendary" (riiiiiight) TLG demo and sales rep. :lol: That said if you'd like to run some games next year, we'd be glad to have your help.

Anyone who did not get tickets to any of the C&C grid games, do not despair! I have all day Saturday open for off-grid action. I am willing to play in your games or I will run a game. I can run what I ran on the grid or other material. Heck, I can run Tegel Manor again. Better yet, make a suggestion and I will make it happen.

Send me a PM and we will set something up!

Nor sure I can live up to that, Clovis. BTW, we might have some folks interested in a Saturday night game. They have yet to try the system. I'll check my email, contact them, and see if you guys can hook up.

For those of you looking to get into a C&C game on Saturday, if the esteemed SnoringRock runs a game, I can say from a few years of experience now that he runs a sick (awesome) game. Last year's GenCon off-grid game was an epic trek through the mountainous ravines and tunnels to find a world famous red dragon Analegorn... and slay it!

It was a fun game that I wished we could have played longer. SnoringRock's games rule!

BTW, there is a picture of the action over on the OFF-GRID C&C GAMES forum over on Facebook:

Edit: Looks like I'm way past the time where an on-grid event is possible. I'll be looking into setting up some off-grid stuff, if I can swing it.

Could any of you running off grid games submit them to me at sword@castlesandcrusades.com. I'll pass them along to the Trolls. We'll promote them for you.
