Wellington Anniversary Weekend January 23rd - 24th 2021

New domain name : kapcon.org.nz

KapCon now has a new domain name of it's very own : kapcon.org.nz.

Don't worry, all the old URLs ( kapcon.rpg.net.nz, kapcon.rpg.org.nz ) still work, and will continue to do so as long as I maintain those domains, so people don;t need to hare off and edit any links they may have on web sites, and all our old search stats will remain relevant.

It just means that there is now a slightly shorter URL to type and print on external forms. :)

Kapcon SIte Now Has Commercial Hosting

KapCon is no longer hosted on an ancient (10+ years old) IBM Net Vista sitting in my lounge. This hoary old beast is now permanently quiet, as is my lounge. You should find that performance of the site is significantly improved, along wth it's reliability.

This site, and the others that used to be hosted there, are now hosted on a Debian VPS provided by the very professional New Zealand-based Net24. I've always been impressed at the service provided by their sister company 1st Domains, who provide registration and mail forwarding for all the sites I manage, including this one, and so far Net24 have been just as impressive.

The process of transition was extremely smooth, and took less than day. ( I love apt-get! ) However, if you discover anything not working for you please let me know.

Now to look at upgrading to Drupal 7 and looking at some of those site enhancements some people have suggested.

Project Olive Branch

Facilitator: 
Trond Nilsen

Welcome to the Project Olive Branch Troubleshooting Task Force. You may be aware that Quality Assurance have recently detected several critical defects in the first batch of Vindicators, due to be delivered to Alpha Complex Armed Forces in only a few days. Executive has determined that while these defects are most likely the fault of commie traitors and rival firms, a full review of the project is needed to examine these challenges and determine a preferred strategy for overcoming them.

Please report to conference room B14 for briefing.

Lashings Of Ginger Beer - Five Go Mad On Tour

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.
It is the summer holidays. You are all on tour with the Barmy Army, and having a spiffing time following the English cricket team around. What strange mystery or exciting adventure could possibly be uncovered. No doubt, some kind cricket fan's mum will provide you with loads of cream cakes, tons of ham sandwiches, bags of lettuce and a mountain of tomatoes - wizard!! So bring along your silly British accents, bicycles, camping equipment, cricket bats and simply lashings of ginger beer - well hoorah!!

Herald of the Yellow King

Facilitator: 
Andy Millar

As a cold December settles over the kingdom of Shereborne, you are brought before Lord Boniface and commanded with the simple task of delivering an apology for a past grievance.

However it is hard to undo that which has once been done, and a chain of events has now started which may result in madness, murder or much worse for the lands of Wessex.

As the herald of the Yellow King spreads his dread news across the land, you will need to summon all your courage, cunning and wisdom if you are to halt the power of the yellow sign.

Monsters in a Manual

Facilitator: 
Ian Bayard

In 1983 the Reagan administration approved a 2 billion dollar bill for the relocation and resettlement of 18,000 refugees from "non-reality-based" countries and regions to start new lives in the good ol' U.S. of A.

Today is a proud day for Gary the Beholder and his friends, the first native-born generation of “Monstrous Americans” as they embark on a road trip along the classic Route 66 to start their first year of college.
