Wellington Anniversary Weekend January 17th - 18th 2014

KapCon 24

KapCon 24 in 2015 is on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th of January. Monday 19th is a statutory holiday for Wellington workers and can be used for recovery.

What is KapCon?

KapCon is a not-for-profit role-playing game convention run annually in Wellington, New Zealand, every January. Over a hundred people get together for a weekend of role-playing, in a diverse range of styles and systems. Over the weekend, more than 30 individual games are run, with volunteer GMs (or storytellers, narrators or facilitators) running games between one and six times over the course of the convention.

Stormrise

Morgan Davie

An adventure for Doctor Who: Adventures in Time & Space.
Set in the Doctor Who television universe but not featuring the Doctor.

A small seaside village gathers to commemmorate those lost in a deadly storm several years before. When the village is beset with strange and dangerous troubles, a motley group of ordinary people must find a way to save themselves, the village, and maybe even the world.

Monsterhearts

Facilitator: 
Freya Sacksen

'Whoever said high school was the best years of your life, clearly never had to contend with ghosts, fae, vampires and contracts from demons. And that's before the math test is done.

Monsterhearts is a game where you play teenage monsters, manipulating, controlling and falling in and out of lust & lust. Will you and your beloved die romantic yet tragic deaths? Or will you be the spurned best friend?

No Gifts And Do No Good

Facilitator: 
Ivan Towlson

Mighty Ares’ fury knows no bounds. The hot blooded god of war paid his respects to Hippolyte, queen of the warrior Amazons, by giving her a splendid girdle. But brutal Heracles, wanting Ares’ gift for fair Admete, murdered Hippolyte and stole the girdle. The god will not stand for this insult. And so he requires you to abandon your journey back from the Trojan War to your peaceful homes in Greece, and avenge his favourite.

And why not? Peaceful homes are all very well, but your interest is glory – the glory of greatness in battle, in word, and in spirit – glory that will echo down the ages in poem and song. That is why you sweat and bleed. But only one of you can go down in legend as the avenger of Hippolyte. Who among you will be immortalised with their own star in the heavens? And whose grave will be forgotten along with their deeds? Enter the agon, and prove the glory of your name.

Experimental Error

Facilitator: 
Karen Wilson

You're excited to be the first research team to move into the new Salinger Building, but moving labs kind of sucks. It's tricky getting experiments to work in the new lab. There seem to be some teething problems with the building systems: lights flickering; brown-outs wreaking havoc with your sensitive equipment. You reckon the Megadairy corp lab on the top floor is hogging all the power. Their lights NEVER go out, even in the middle of the night. At least, not until the night of the blackout.

Wicked Lies & Alibis

Facilitator: 
Dale

You are the Prime Suspect in a Murder Investigation

The world is changing; a great economic depression wipes out the life savings of rich and poor alike.

But the party goes on for the wealthy and well-heeled, determined to ignore the impending financial crisis and dance long into the night.

Now a brutal murder threatens to shatter this world of privilege, influence and power. One of your own is dead and a Great Detective has been summoned to solve the case.

Yes you had a motive, and perhaps even the means and opportunity to commit the murder, but you're certainly not the only one...

Clear your name and uncover the real killer, before it's too late!

Wicked Lies & Alibis is a forthcoming title from Imaginary Empire; a whodunnit roleplaying experience set in the age of Art Deco. Players generate characters at the table from a selection of cards, and play through several establishing scenes in the lead-up to a murder. The remainder of the game is resolved through accusations, alibis and flashbacks as the characters seek to avoid suspicion by incriminating one another. This game will only be offered in Round 6.
