Wellington Anniversary Weekend January 20th - 21st 2018

Trail of Blood

Facilitator: 
Alasdair Sinclair

In ages past, the two great city states, Ayeth and Mors defeated the Great Enemy and sent her crawling back to the nothingness. Since then, each generation has seen an exchange of envoys - a gesture of the bond of eternal friendship forged in the fires of War.

You are the envoy of this generation. The Old Ones say that the days have grown dark, and the nights long, ere an expedition was sent or received; but you are young, strong and proud: you do not fear to tread in the Forests of the Ancients, or traverse the Great Rapids, nor skirt the thrown down temples of the long-dead enemy of your races.

Like your fathers before you, you will set out in a mission of peace and mutual friendship across the Forgotten Continent. May the gods go with you, and watch your steps.

Notes:

- Player character death is expected, and may happen at any time depending on the vagaries of The Tower and the skill of the players.

- Player characters will be partly player generated using a simple questionnaire. Through their answers to these questions, the players will determine significant elements of the game's feel, especially the intra-party dynamic.

The Journey

Facilitator: 
Barry Baker (taxboy4)

It's a fantasy story as old as time - a group of adventurers have a mission to travel from a town to a distant House of Contemplation..all that is missing is a smoky Tavern and an old man in a hooded cloak...

..but this mission is a little different, the world a little more gritty and grey, our brave adventuring party know nothing of dungeons and trapdoors..

The small group is comprised of a withered Nursemaid, a impetuous man servant with regular features, a retired soldier and a pure example of young female innocence.

KapCon needs you!

While we've timetabled 45% of the con so far, we need more games. Lots more games. Including another six for first round. So please, register your game today!

To Kill a Lie

Facilitator: 
Luke Walker

Hollywood: the glitz, the glamour, the grim. The Esoteric Order of Dagon's influence spreads through this town like a foul tide, eroding its foundations and sinking us faster into chaos. But what is chaos in a town where death is just a morbid sideshow or an unnoticed back-alley mistake?

People don't see what we see walking the streets every day. There are such things as monsters. In order to protect you, we have chosen to become that which threatens you - bonding ourselves to otherworldly symbiotes called Tagers.

Best Friends

Facilitator: 
Jenni Dowsett

A freeform laugh-a-minute indie game about being best friends....the setting, characters and story are pretty much up to the players. So far I've run it as Star Wars, Robyn Hood, Prom night, shojou fantasy and superheroes and villains in the Big Brother house.

It's awesome fun. Come along!

Lashings of Ginger Beer and Haggis

Facilitator: 
Julia Blackmore

A Famous Five piss take in the style of the TV comedy, Five Go Mad in Dorset, by The Comic Strip team.
You are all off on a spiffing camping holiday in Scotland. What could possibly happen? A pleasant and uneventful camping trip or rip roaring adventure? No doubt, some kind farmers wife will provide loads of cream cakes, ham sandwiches and bags of lettuce and tomatoes - wizard!! So bring along your silly British accents, detective skills, bicycles, camping equipment, and simply lashings of ginger beer - well hoorah!!

A.C.O.R.N.

Facilitator: 
Sophie M

Join A.C.O.R.N. they said. You’ll see the world they said. Be a Hero, they said. What they didn’t say is that you’d spend you’re time as a ‘B’ grade spy who is only sent on the type of missions that involve picking up the Boss's dry cleaning and making sure his brat of a daughter gets to College on time. This is worse than High School!

Why does nothing interesting ever happen?

Savage Worlds

Project Breather

Facilitator: 
Sophie M

London. Winter. 1963.

But rather than swinging this London is barely holding on in the aftermath of a war which has cut off all communications with the rest of the world. A war which unleashed weapons more terrible and twisted than just nuclear bombs. The Cold War went Hot and now you have to live in the ruins of what was.

System: 
Hot War

24 Hours : Regarding Ducks (Re:Ducks)

Facilitator: 
The Dingwall Brothers Flying Circus

A game by one of the infamous Dingwall brothers!

Actually this is a reworking of a very old game of mine which originally sailed under the title: 24 hours tarok game or the not happy happy smurf game.

Really all i can tell you about the game with out giving anyhting away is that your character will wake up in a room. But don't worry your character knows as much as you do about what's going on :P
