[B]What is a PPG Mini Online Convention?[/B]
The sites online convention invites roleplayers to enjoy one shot games in the chat room. Many GMs get together on this day and share their works. Occasionally published authors from the gaming industry visit the chat room to share their latest published designs. Starting on August 16th 2014 we hold the very first PPGCon in the chat room. From there we continue to host one shot games every 3rd Saturday of the month.

These games allow roleplayers to enjoy various game systems for the first time. Various GMs provide pre-generated character selections to choose from and a small quest that can be finished in about 3 to 4 hours time.

Many homebrews will be introduced, yet also there will be popular games played such as Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder, Champions, Heros System, GURPS, Fate Core, and Savage Worlds.

The first games start at 10 A.M. and the last ones begin at 8 P.M U.S. Eastern Time. These are the basic times yet many GMs will also accept "walk ins" on that day. At midnight we get together and celebrate the occasion together.
