Role Playing Games



RPGs at CinCityCon

Regardless of your RPG style, CinCityCon has something for you!  We are still putting the schedule together, but here are some of the things we are working on.

Jump to schedule of RPGs

Organized play: Pathfinder & Starfinder Societies
If you are into organized play, the Queen City Lodge of the Pathfinder Society will be running Pathfinder and Starfinder games all weekend, including the Starfinder Special which was first run at Origins this year!

Organized play: D&D Adventurer’s League
We are also working with The Adventurer’s League to bring you official DDAL content, including an Epic.  We’re also hoping to have Fai Chen’s Fantastic Faire on site for trades and upgrades!

RPGs from the RPG Academy and AcadeCon
Organized play not your thing?  Michael Ross and some of his friends will be running games for us all weekend.  If you are not familiar with the name, Michael is the guy behind the RPG Academy podcast and the primary organizer of AcadeCon.  In the past they have run games for us such as Fantasy AGE, Dread, and Dungeon Crawl Classics.

Call of Cthulhu
We have also been in touch with Chaosium.  We expect to have some Call of Cthulhu events and we have invited them to run RuneQuest.

We expect to have a local GM running some Shadowrun adventures for us.  I’ve heard for two years now that she runs amazing games and I’m excited at the prospect of having her with us this year.  We are also reaching out to Catalyst and hope to have someone running official Shadowrun Missions.

Star Wars
Last year we were able to host the Star Wars Sparks campaign and have confirmed that they will be back this year.  In case you are not familiar with it, Sparks is an ongoing Star Wars campaign based on the old West End Games D6 system and has been running since 1995.

Securing Your Seat at RPG Events

Since getting into your desired event is important, we have a system for making sure you get your seat.   Prior to the convention, you can pay $2 to reserve a seat in a particular RPG event.  When you get to the convention, you find that your name has already been added to the signup sheet for that event.  Online signups for RPG events will be halted about a week before the convention to give us time to print the signup sheets.
Ticket sales start about a month before the convention, when GMs have committed to their events.

Becoming a GM

Great events need Great GMs.  You can contact us now, if you want to be a GM at CinCityCon 2018.  Conventions are a great place to get in games you may not have a chance to play otherwise.  You can submit your events now.
