Come one, come all!

December 13th marks a new holiday for gamers, Pen and Paper Games' HoliCon!

We're seeking GMs and players for a festive day of roleplaying and virtual dice rolling. Tell your relatives you'll be busy, because if you didn't have a game planned before, you have one now! Don't let the thread posting fool you, fantasy games are not the only games in play.

Players: reply to this thread to show your interest or to reserve a spot in one of Saturday's games. Private messages are welcome.

GMs: reply to announce your game, its time, and time zone. And to show your support. Please include a link to your game discussion thread, Obsidian Portal page, or other website.

I will run, as advertised, a "Modos RPG, Skyrim, Team Last Man Standing." Which might require a little explaining:

Modos RPG
This is an indie game falling somewhere between Savage Worlds and D&D 5, with a little FATE thrown in for good measure. Details are here (http://www.penandpapergames.com/forums/showthread.php/29985-Q-amp-A-How-to-play-Modos-RPG?p=194405#post194405).

This is the setting, borrowed from the Elder Scrolls by Bethesda, which is a Scandinavia-like region populated with hardy people, natural beasts, undead, and sometimes, dragons.

Team Last Man Standing
Rarely do FPS-shooter gamestyles translate to RPGs. But I'm gonna try. Your goal for the game is to survive as long as possible (the LMS part), while helping your team (the Team part). I'll design the game to reward combat and non-combat types, so you won't need to play a Dwarven Defender if you don't want to.

I'll select the three player-characters who survived the longest, and then each player will get to vote for their choice of the best team-player. Get the most votes and you'll win the mystery-RPG-swag.

i would be willing to throw my hat in for gm, but i would want a guaranty that if anyone does same thing as what happened in mora con it be squashed fast i lost a lot of players due to soft serve trolling my game for 2 days before it saying besm is hentai and if you play in ak47 game you be playing a porn game. if this can be done i will set up a game let me know.

One thing sells your game here: the post you write for it. See mine, post #2.

I think I'll add some bold and ask other GMs to do the same - it'll help navigation a bit.

Elsewhere, you're welcome to gather players as you see fit.

I hope this works out DMMike. :)

I have a online board game in the works and will be hosting it in the chat room, but I don't think I'll be able to get it done by the 13th. We are talking 350 illustrated event cards, 12 character cards, etc. etc. - all time consuming, but I will support your effort and let people know about it everywhere I go.

I know I will watch a game of Skyrim though for sure. It will be fun!

One week. If no other GMs are joining, it's going to be one, big, Skyrim battle-royale!

Start your character early by replying to my how-to-play thread:

I could possible do a one shot game. I have a ton of them from Adventure a week. All pathfinder all high fantasy. Its just I have never done it by chat so im not sure i would be any good at it

12-06-2014, 01:24 PM
DMMIke I have been working hard to meet the deadline. I am two weeks earlier then anticipated and can host the Guild Adventures Fantasy Online board game, so I am in to help host a game and support this con. Just let me know what I have to do. Thanks!

Just give me a start time (and time zone), game description, number of players desired, and link, so I can fill in our shortcut table above!

Carodwen, to run Pathfinder, you could use the whiteboard to move miniatures, but you might be better off going mapless and giving the PCs the benefit of the doubt in the majority of cases. (Player: do I get flanking where I am? Carodwen: yeah, sure!)

Okay thanks DMMike! Frohe Feiertage!

Title: Guild Adventures
Type: Online Board Game
Genre: Fantasy
Style: Similar to a board game called Talisman
Amount of Players Needed: 3 to 5
Time Frames: 12:00 to 4:00 P.M. and 6:00 P.M. to 10:00 P.M. (East Coast Frame)
Difficulty: Beginner / Easy - can learn in the first 10 minutes
GM Requirement: Player must be present at the time the game is hosted so the game doesn't stall.

Introduction: Our story begins with a clever and shrewd halfling named Billibon Strudeln the owner of the Adventurer’s Guild only a few leagues away from the free city of Rondor. Because of his reputation many nobles come to provide rewards for contracts they offer in alleviating or even eliminating problems that occur for the inhabitants of the Lands of Bavidirian. On this fine day a mysterious man enters the front doors to the guild tavern and hands over a scroll as of a bag of gold to the 3 foot halfling owner. Without a word or a moment to waste, the stranger leaves the same way he came in to never be seen again.

Unraveling the scroll the halfling reads of a problem rich merchants are having taking the long road to and from two towns. That each town has been experiencing the loss of valuable goods as of merchants that travel frequently to the markets. It was later discovered from a scout that a red dragon of some sorts has been terrorizing the regions.

On the next day Billibon announces a quest to any able adventurer to find the red dragon and bring back its head. Will it be you? If so, go to www.playbyaction.com (http://www.playbyaction.com/) site to choose a character and provide a full name. Email me the information and I'll have you reserved for the day. Thank you!
