Ship of Fools

Facilitator: 
Michael Foster

The Solar Princess, the galaxy's most advanced and most luxurious spaceship (at least according to the advertising brochures), sails serenely between the stars. Some travel on her only briefly, visiting new worlds or sightseeing the wonders of the galaxy as she plies her never-ending course through space, while others have made her their permanent home. And of course there are the crew, only the best and brightest are chosen, obviously.

Soooo Not Our Future

Facilitator: 
Daniel Steadman

The world has changed since the end of season 7. The Slayers have gotten all organisey and missiony but there are a few newly awoken slayers that aren't part of the plan. They still live with their folks, struggle with math and try to get by at school. One such slayer is trying to avoid flunking school and do their bit to keep the world safe, now if only they hadn't been grounded for smoking...

Yes I'm running it again, with some twists....

Swashbucklers of the Seven Skies - Falcons of Crail

Facilitator: 
Paul Wilson

Musketeers, Skyships, Swashbuckers, and Pirates. All of these meet in the port city of Agua Azul on the free cloud island Crail.

When a mysterious artifact is brought in to the port , The Falcons of Agua Azul must track down the conspiracy looking to destroy the city. Could it be a super weapon left over from a people long forgotten ? an assasin's cache in a plot to kill the commandant and plunge the city into disorder?

Either way a motley crew of miscreants / musketeers or municpal employees must solve this riddle.

Kapcon 18 Scenario Design Contest - Judge's Comments

This was a great year for the SDC with five entrants submitting 7 scenarios. The games covered a range of genre from futuristic horror to two fisted mystery to camp humour. The quality of the games was universally high and choosing a winning scenario was no easy task.

KapCon 18 Over

Well, KapCon 18 is over, and we have to wait an entire year till another. Thanks to everyone who came along and made it such a lot of fun, especially our overseas visitors and the LARP team, but not forgetting all our amazing facilitators!

In the meantime, you can look at pictures of the LARP (some more are available here, but you'll need a Facebook log-in to see them), or follow the thread on NZ-RAG where people link to posts about their experiences of the convention. If you've written one, or just want to make some comments, go to the thread and link yours in, we all want to hear what people thought!

Now we have to figure out what (if anything) next year's KapCon will be subtitled!
