It's time for TotalCon to roll around again!! TotalCon 24 has grown once more and will be held February 18-21, 2010 at the Holiday Inn in Mansfield, MA. www.totalcon.com
This year will feature 150 role-playing slot choices alone!! Over 500 slot choices spanning the entire convention spread over all gaming genres.
We have several RP Industry Guests including Frank Mentzer who will be offering a very special event for Old School D&D players:
"Palace of the Vampire Queen" (the first D&D module ever published! 1976)
4-12 players, Basic D&D, low level (3-4), minimal rules
* All participants receive a signed souvenir certificate!
* As run at GaryCon 1 (2009: the first convention commemorating the passing of Gary Gygax) "PVQ, as we old-timers call it, was published by a Michigan company called Wee Warriors. Tactical Studies & Rules (later TSR) hadn't yet realized that modular adventures could be viable products. For that matter, Wee Warriors also produced the only blank character sheets for the game. My how things have changed since 1976...
But anyhow, the Palace is a very disorganized place, the oldest of Old-style dungeons. Since I'm running for lower level characters, you won't be facing the Queen herself (trust me)... but there's lots of fun along the way."
Also Jay Libby, Brad Younie, Andre Kruppa, Mark Edwards, Bedrock Games, and the RPGBomb crew.
