Well, hello again! Yes, on the same day as a much-delayed report of Gary Con 10.
Now I bring you a report of “Who’s Yer Con” held last weekend, Mar 30-Apr 1, 2018 in Indianapolis, IN. My pleasure in going was to run 3 events of Dungeon Crawl Classics. “Who’s Yer Con” is a free event held for a Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. This was the 10th year for this free gaming convention. It comprises of many board games and the ever popular RPGs. I was honored to be asked to run several events of Dungeon Crawl Classics at this convention in my home state.
There is always the setup. And the nerves that go with it.
Here are a couple photos from my time at Who’s Yer Con 10.
Here we had played “The Woeful Tale of Sour Spring Hollow” in The Chained Coffin boxed set by Micheal Curtis. Yes, you see the multiple red “Dead” stamps on the character sheets. It was a TPK (total party kill). The fun of the 0-level funnel is the challenge of figuring out the puzzles and how to prevent deadly encounters. Run! Run away! Run as fast as you can when you have only one PC left. LOL
The other event, “Portal Under the Stars” which is included in the Dungeon Crawl Classics core book, there were three PCs that made it out alive. We had 21 PCs enter the Portal with a very little survival rate.
Again, I avoided the Con Crud, but could not avoid the letdown feeling that another con was over. I enjoy the excitement and am learning what decompression I need to do upon arrival and set up, keeping up energy throughout, but the ending and the coming home…not so much. If you have any suggestions for the “Oh my word, is the con over with already? No….!” feeling, please pass this one to me.
And happy gaming.
