Event description

Description

Together with other local gamers, we are arranging a repeat one-day RPG event in Warwickshire on 21st September.

The Bear and the Ragged Staff is the symbol of the Earls of Warwick and, subsequently, of the County, and we thought eminently suitable for a D&D makeover, and hence the Con’s name became The Owlbear and Wizard’s Staff. Thanks to Mrs Griff for the stunning artwork.

We’re going to try and keep it simple.

RPG sessions morning and afternoon, with a lunch break. Time for a trip to the pub at the end of the day. We’ve hired the Band Factory in Leamington as our venue – lots of space to spread out tables, near the railway station, pubs, and places to eat.

We’ll open the doors at 9am and the first RPG sessions run from 10am-1.30pm, break for lunch, and second session run from 2.30pm-6pm. We'll do the same as last year and not have fixed ticket prices, but ask for donations on the day of £5-10 to cover venue hire, refreshments, and GM gifts.

We can manage up to 10 tables for each session and last year we had very kind GMs runing a variety of games including Dungeon Crawl Classics, Mutant Crawl Classics, Lamentations of the Flame Princess, Star Trek Adventures, D&D5e, Numenera, Shadowrun, RuneQuest Glorantha, HeroQuest Glorantha, Genesys, Call of Cthulhu, Space 1889, Monster of the Week, Feng Shui, Elite Dangerous, Eclipse Phase and Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay.

This year we've got some great games on offer - HeroQuest (in two flavours, Glorantha and Spaghetti Western), some PbtA fun for the hip indie kids with Spirit of '77 and Dungeon World, cosmic nihilism with Call of Cthulhu, Achtung! Cthulhu, and Mothership, the grim darkness of WH40K Wrath and Glory and Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, new school/old school with Black Hack, Midderlands, and Forbidden Lands, fiction-inspired games with Vurt and Dresden Files, and of course, D&D.

I'm planning to hire the first floor of the venue too - primarily to give us a second bathroom, but also perhaps to give us space for another couple of tables. Hoping to get in some table for Dungeon Crawl Classics,Mutant Crawl Classics, and the Liminal RPG!
