September 6th, 2248: For the past three years Earth has been fighting a losing war against a massively superior alien race known as the Minbari. Now the Minbari fleet has come to Earth. A call has gone out for everyone able to fly a ship to report to a muster station. From there, you have been moved out to near a military airfield and told to wait pending an announcement that should come in an hour or two.

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!

Shadowrun - Parliament of Theives

Facilitator:

First mission of the Denver story arc from Shadowrun Missions. This is a simple small package delivery, easy enough, right?

This is part of the ongoing Shadowrun Missions series of games, and is the first game set in Denver. You are welcome to bring along a new character you wish to use in Shadowrun missions games, otherwise I will have a selection of pre-generated characters with me for you to choose from.

Dirty Streets

Facilitator: 
Svend Andersen

It's the 1940s, and in the city of Purity a D.A. looking to make a name for himself has caught a break -- there's someone willing to testify against the city's biggest mob boss. He's got himself a "task force" of two pairs of detectives, and together they're meant to strike a blow for justice against someone who thinks they're above the law. But in the most corrupt city in America, where everyone has a dirty little secret, who can you trust?

This game will be run using the Mountain Witch rules, with a fair amount of player narration.

Wings in the Darkness

Facilitator: 
James Plunket

It is the Year of our Lord 1602. The Slave Coast of Africa is a place of profit and danger for the bold-hearted, but few dare to enter the sinister jungle that looms inland beyond the coastal enclaves. You have heard the local folk whisper dark tales by the firelight of ancient horrors and beasts that hunt men, and worse - are these tales true, or just the ghost stories of ignorant savages?
