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.

New SDC Entries On-Line!

The SDC Archive has been updated with two of this year's entries, including Stephanie Pegg's winning entry, But Nobody Loses An Eye and Donna & Malcom's amusing Down & Out In Middenburg

We've also added the missing 2008 winning entry For the Honour of the Family. Sorry it's taken us so long to get that one up there!

Mind the WMDs

Facilitator: 
Conan McKegg

About thirty years ago the TITANs, powerful AIs designed to protect us, went rogue and brought about the fall of humanity. Earth is a post apocalyptic wasteland and humanity has fled to the other worlds of the Solar System.

Now we have changed, we are no longer known as humanity but as Transhumanity. We have conquered death, our minds kept in backup ready to be downloaded into new bodies when required. Our forms can be anything, our bodies now just another resource for our minds to use and replace at our whim.

Valley of Lost Children

Facilitator: 
Karen Wilson

You are a member of an elite unit in the Brassicacean army, hand-picked by the charismatic captain. You’re a close-knit unit of specialists, usually assigned to ambassadorial missions or diplomatic protection, but now, mysteriously assigned to a tax collection detail. Apparently some hick town in Umbellifera (a province you’ve barely heard of on the western margin of the empire) is attracting the attention and jealousy of its neighbours by having a few more sheep than them or something.
