5170 Paragraph System: Merlinspawn, GM: David Vandenabeele, 5 players, No XP/Average, Friday 9a-2p. Merlinspawn is set in Victorian England in 1876. Three or four generations ago, Merlin of Camelot returned to London, and magic came with him. Hand in hand with that, revolutions in industry and science began. In the century since this flowering, the world now sees alchemists and diviners working for Scotland Yard. Magical courses being taught at prominent universities, and feats of invention that seem almost magical themselves are becoming visible, if not commonplace. To keep the realm safe, Queen Victoria and her representatives have gathered together people of diverse talents. You are one of these heroes. Perhaps you are a gentle adventurer, possessing mundane skills honed to incredible levels. The gift of magic may be yours to command. You may be a being of legend, gifted (or cursed) with abilities that make you more (and perhaps less) than human. Invention and science may be your gift - or your curse, if what you create works only in your hands. So far, I have among our PC cast a golem, a shapeshifter, several immortals of various stripes, two or three half or full-blooded Fey, more than a few "mundane" adventurers, a handful of magicians with various specialties, a pair of mediums - each with their own relationship with the spirits of the dead, and a few scientists - an animator, a master of etheric engines, and a four-armed cyborg who cheats at cards.

5171 Paragraph System: Merlinspawn, GM: David Vandenabeele, 5 players, No XP/Average, Friday 7p-12a. Merlinspawn is set in Victorian England in 1876. Three or four generations ago, Merlin of Camelot returned to London, and magic came with him. Hand in hand with that, revolutions in industry and science began. In the century since this flowering, the world now sees alchemists and diviners working for Scotland Yard. Magical courses being taught at prominent universities, and feats of invention that seem almost magical themselves are becoming visible, if not commonplace. To keep the realm safe, Queen Victoria and her representatives have gathered together people of diverse talents. You are one of these heroes. Perhaps you are a gentle adventurer, possessing mundane skills honed to incredible levels. The gift of magic may be yours to command. You may be a being of legend, gifted (or cursed) with abilities that make you more (and perhaps less) than human. Invention and science may be your gift - or your curse, if what you create works only in your hands. So far, I have among our PC cast a golem, a shapeshifter, several immortals of various stripes, two or three half or full-blooded Fey, more than a few "mundane" adventurers, a handful of magicians with various specialties, a pair of mediums - each with their own relationship with the spirits of the dead, and a few scientists - an animator, a master of etheric engines, and a four-armed cyborg who cheats at cards.

Investigators will be challenged to the edge of sanity and beyond as they examine whether the horrors of the Mythos are indeed worse than the evils which mankind can inflict upon itself… Mature Content (18+) Conference B Table 4. $3.00

Its been running for several years in Madison, Dallas and Seattle, as well as last year here. There is no school like the old school! Late Night Swords and Wizardry with grognard GM Bill Webb of Frog God Games. Travel back to the dawn of the game where character generation took 2 minutes (which is good, because you die a lot!), there was no such thing as a spot check, dwarves and elves were classes, not just races, and a +1 sword was a wonder! This is the 8th year in a row that Bill has run an event of this type at gaming conventions, and it's always late night affair. This year expect a dungeon crawl adventure where you better bring your imagination and your thinking cap. Starting at 8 pm and ending at 1 am (or later). Number of players is capped at 15 (plus invited guests for a total of 20 players). Bring dice and miniatures. You can roll up characters at the table. Rules will generally follow those in Swords and Wizardry Complete and Bill Webb's book of Dirty Tricks (available at the Frog God store--and the rulebook pdf is free!). All character generation is 3d6 in order, although stats cap at +1/-1 on bonus and penalty, and are thus, mostly irrelevant. Bill's games are well known for having high fatality rates and extremely difficult puzzles and traps. If you play in both sessions, experience points and treasure carry over to the next night. If you have a character from prior adventures you may continue play them here--if not just bring 3d6 and a d20 and you can make one at the table. Kids welcome, but it gets pretty late at night for little ones. Prizes awarded for a) first to die, b) MVP of session (as voted by players), c) most creative, d) best roleplayer and e) most number of kills (and other PCs count if its accidental)!

5172 Paragraph System: Merlinspawn, GM: David Vandenabeele, 5 players, No XP/Average, Saturday 9a-2p. Merlinspawn is set in Victorian England in 1876. Three or four generations ago, Merlin of Camelot returned to London, and magic came with him. Hand in hand with that, revolutions in industry and science began. In the century since this flowering, the world now sees alchemists and diviners working for Scotland Yard. Magical courses being taught at prominent universities, and feats of invention that seem almost magical themselves are becoming visible, if not commonplace. To keep the realm safe, Queen Victoria and her representatives have gathered together people of diverse talents. You are one of these heroes. Perhaps you are a gentle adventurer, possessing mundane skills honed to incredible levels. The gift of magic may be yours to command. You may be a being of legend, gifted (or cursed) with abilities that make you more (and perhaps less) than human. Invention and science may be your gift - or your curse, if what you create works only in your hands. So far, I have among our PC cast a golem, a shapeshifter, several immortals of various stripes, two or three half or full-blooded Fey, more than a few "mundane" adventurers, a handful of magicians with various specialties, a pair of mediums - each with their own relationship with the spirits of the dead, and a few scientists - an animator, a master of etheric engines, and a four-armed cyborg who cheats at cards.

5173 Paragraph System: Merlinspawn, GM: David Vandenabeele, 5 players, No XP/Average, Saturday 7p-12a. Merlinspawn is set in Victorian England in 1876. Three or four generations ago, Merlin of Camelot returned to London, and magic came with him. Hand in hand with that, revolutions in industry and science began. In the century since this flowering, the world now sees alchemists and diviners working for Scotland Yard. Magical courses being taught at prominent universities, and feats of invention that seem almost magical themselves are becoming visible, if not commonplace. To keep the realm safe, Queen Victoria and her representatives have gathered together people of diverse talents. You are one of these heroes. Perhaps you are a gentle adventurer, possessing mundane skills honed to incredible levels. The gift of magic may be yours to command. You may be a being of legend, gifted (or cursed) with abilities that make you more (and perhaps less) than human. Invention and science may be your gift - or your curse, if what you create works only in your hands. So far, I have among our PC cast a golem, a shapeshifter, several immortals of various stripes, two or three half or full-blooded Fey, more than a few "mundane" adventurers, a handful of magicians with various specialties, a pair of mediums - each with their own relationship with the spirits of the dead, and a few scientists - an animator, a master of etheric engines, and a four-armed cyborg who cheats at cards.

Tegel Manor came out in 1977 and was the first dungeon adventure I ever had. In honor of Judges Guild’s 40th anniversary, I will be deviating from my standard Mythus Tower game and running a slightly modified (by me) version of this old classic! Startling Statues and the infamous Rump Family awaits! This old time haunted house is an original masterpiece by Bob Bledsaw, one of the three men that inspired me to play the game. Fire up your clerics and holy water and prepare for lots of creepy encounters. Locate the inspiration for the Gazebo legends of the game! Just don’t make the house mad. Late Night Swords and Wizardry with grognard GM Bill Webb of Frog God Games. Travel back to the dawn of the game where character generation took 2 minutes (which is good, because you die a lot!), there was no such thing as a spot check, dwarves and elves were classes, not just races, and a +1 sword was a wonder! Starting at 8 pm and ending at 1 am (or later). Number of players is capped at 15 (plus invited guests for a total of 20 players). Bring dice and miniatures. You can roll up characters at the table. Rules will generally follow those in Swords and Wizardry Complete and Bill Webb's book of Dirty Tricks (available at the Frog God store--and the rulebook pdf is free!). All character generation is 3d6 in order, although stats cap at +1/-1 on bonus and penalty, and are thus, mostly irrelevant. You may bring your characters from Mythus Tower to play. If you play in both sessions, experience points and treasure carry over to the next night. If you have a character from prior adventures you may continue play them here--if not just bring 3d6 and a d20 and you can make one at the table. Family Friendly (7+) Conference F Table 1-2. $4.00

5174 Paragraph System: Merlinspawn, GM: David Vandenabeele, 5 players, No XP/Average, Sunday 9a-2p. Merlinspawn is set in Victorian England in 1876. Three or four generations ago, Merlin of Camelot returned to London, and magic came with him. Hand in hand with that, revolutions in industry and science began. In the century since this flowering, the world now sees alchemists and diviners working for Scotland Yard. Magical courses being taught at prominent universities, and feats of invention that seem almost magical themselves are becoming visible, if not commonplace. To keep the realm safe, Queen Victoria and her representatives have gathered together people of diverse talents. You are one of these heroes. Perhaps you are a gentle adventurer, possessing mundane skills honed to incredible levels. The gift of magic may be yours to command. You may be a being of legend, gifted (or cursed) with abilities that make you more (and perhaps less) than human. Invention and science may be your gift - or your curse, if what you create works only in your hands. So far, I have among our PC cast a golem, a shapeshifter, several immortals of various stripes, two or three half or full-blooded Fey, more than a few "mundane" adventurers, a handful of magicians with various specialties, a pair of mediums - each with their own relationship with the spirits of the dead, and a few scientists - an animator, a master of etheric engines, and a four-armed cyborg who cheats at cards.
