Wellington Anniversary Weekend January 19th - 20th 2019

The Snark

Facilitator: 
Marcus Bone

"Just the Place for a Snark!", the Bellman cried, as he landed his crew with care. Supporting each man on the top of the tide by a finger entwined in his hair...

The Bellman himself lays dead at your feet, the victim of some dastardly deed. But who is of guilt and who is to blame, and which had a desperate need.

The Bellman lays dead, let me tell you again, and your companions all quiver with fear. Each had a cause, and all had the means, yet is that the Boojum you hear?

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.
