A quick announcement so that people can put it in the diaries and start thinking of what they'd like to run.

FG Con 10 will run from Friday evening 7th April (Aus and NZ time) thru until late on Sunday 9th April (US and Canada), 2017. That's nearly 70 hours of great games on offer for players to participate in, 70 hours for GMs to show case their latest creations and for everyone to meet new people and plan great and heroic adventures!

UPDATE: SmiteWorks have very generously agreed to upgrade full licenses to Ultimate licenses for the duration of FG Con 10. Thus allowing everyone the ability to play for free! Thanks Doug and John.

We are in the process of updating the FG Con website, graphics, etc.. So please be patient on that side as we get the infrastructure in place for bookings and advertising the con.

We're also in discussion with a number of Third Party Publishers (3PPs) who will be supporting us this convention - providing GMs with a free copy of the FG scenario/s they are running and also providing prize support for the players involved in those games. More info to come.

Otherwise, keep an eye out for more info and announcements over the coming days and weeks!

Third Party Publisher support!

We're working with a number of third party publishers (3PPs) across different RPG systems to get support for FG Con. What this usually consists of is a GM willing to run a convention slot (3-5 hours) that consists of the material from one of the 3PPs products - some adventures will need tweaking to fit within a convention slot time. The 3PP will provide the FG module (and sometimes the product PDF as well) to the GM to aid in the running of their scenario at FG Con.

Current 3PPs we have confirmed are:

Legendary Games - they have lots of 5E and Pathfinder Adventures in FG format: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/store/?sys=-1&pub=34&typ=-1&search=&sort=1 We're working to provide some 5E pregens for the Legendary Beginnings first part - which we'd recommend for running at FG Con. GMs are welcome to run any of the Legendary Games material at FG Con.
Dan Harlan's "Balance Disturbed" (5E) - http://www.dmsguild.com/product/180749/Balance-Disturbed-BDC1
AAW Games - Lots of possibilities - mini dungeons, 5E and Pathfinder scenarios, etc.. Over 40 different FG products: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/store/?sys=-1&pub=22&typ=-1&search=&sort=1 Further details to come on how we're working with AAW Games for FG Con 10.


The above list will expand as we confirm other 3PP support.

If you're a GM who is interested in running a 3PP scenario at FG Con please get in touch with the FG Con team by email at: [email protected]

If you're a 3PP who'd like to provide support to FG GMs for the convention then please contact us by email at: [email protected]

I think it would be cool to run a group through 5 sessions, but that would be hard on a FG CON. I think the Trail of Apprentice series are 3-4 hour shots. The AAW ones I have are shorter , but quite fun. Will start getting myself familiar with the modules. Loved the last FGCON and I want to help make this one even better!

I love your enthusiasm, but I would not recommend 5 sessions for the convention, and certainly not for your first time DMing. Some GMs have ran multi-session games at previous FG Cons, but this is mostly a maximum of three sessions - usually running at the same time on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Additionally, I think you're underestimating how long it will take to run each of the Trail of the Apprentice parts. I'm sure you can prune each down to fit within a convention timeslot though, if that is what you want to do.

I'd recommend you stick to 1-3 events for FG Con 10 - no need to burn yourself out and there will always be plenty of other opportunities in the future. Plus, as you haven't GM'd before, I would strongly recommend that you run a test session a few weeks before the convention - this will give you an idea of timing, get some experience GMing in FG and give you some ideas for the convention. Don't go into the convention cold as a GM!

Agreed! The Cool to run a group through comment was aimed at later! I ran through some of the Trail series on my own to get a feel, I feel they can be moved along in some areas if needed. The AAW modules I have would definitely fit in the time slots, so I am leaning towards those but I do like the Trial series a lot.

The Con timeslot typically allows for around 3 combat encounters and some roleplaying/challenge ones. No more.
You can also run the same session on more than one day to lower your prep effort.
As Trenloe says dont try and overdo it - run 1-3 sessions and if you want more - play in a couple too!

So, this idea has been tossed out before, and isn't mine, so...

Would there be value in some of us hosting a "How to GM at FG Con" on March 25th? I would be willing to help, and could host a GoTo Meeting so screen sharing etc can be done. If people are interested, why don't we start another thread?

Hola LordEntrails this concept is always a good concept and equally it could be run at FG Con as well.

Great! Start thinking of what you're going to run, so that when GM event registration starts in a few weeks you'll be ready to post your session/s and will stand the best chance of filling your games.

My offer is still open, anyone needing pregenerated characters for 5e, I have the 16 "standard" WoTC characters converted and available here:

http://www.dmsguild.com/browse.php?author=Michael%20Potter

Anyone needing 5e characters for FG-Con can use these for "free" with no guilt for paying zero for "pay what you want".

There is a good selection of the different character classes and some fun archetypes to try.

I'll need to see what my schedule looks like that weekend but I can probably swing at least DMing one or two games. Probably one Swords & Wizardry and one Barbarians of Lemuria (I better reread the rules, huh?).

Based on my previous experience, the earlier you open up player registration, the more churn you get.

I will probably DM a 5e game or two, but I already DM twice a week and may just want to play.

Trenloe
February 21st, 2017, 03:07

Yep, we'll give a GMs a couple of weeks to get their events all squared away and then give 2-3 weeks (TBD) for player registration. It's always best to have as many events registered as possible before players get to book, so that they don't see something new and shiny appear later and switch.

Historically we allow GMs to add events up until around a week before (sometimes even later), but would much prefer GMs to get their events sorted out and posted before player rego begins.

What's the guideline on game length?

3-5 hours. So keep the scenario fairly short, get into the action fast and keep it moving.

This and others are all good ideas, but I want them to feel a bit of hope when they roll for initiative. To think that maybe they can pull it off with wit and spunk. Then watch that spark fade from their eyes as the damage dice rain down all around them!

From memory, there is a way to specify max players -- it's a matter of fiddling with the interface. Some instructions can be found on page 3 here: http://www.fg-con.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/FGCon_GMGuidelines2016.pdf

I'm going to run that one too. I recommend the beginning town section and then going straight to the cave section. I plan on testing a little soon, I'll pass on any more paring down I see needed. There is one section in the cave that can easily be omitted, one or 2 others could be dropped on the fly as needed due to time constraints.

The four of us are happy, we all needed this. This should put a good dent in our ships payments, keep the creditors away for another month or two. Easy Money!! Well, time to depart. Praise the Icons!

Well, so much for this being a short trip. Our vessel just lost all power to the drives. Seems like several power couplings failed. We have spares on board and both Anari and Scept are working on the repairs. 12 hours perhaps? Ill spend my time in prayer.

Event Log 656.0830-3
We have had a serious accident. Scept just got himself fried, he never isolated the circuits, and poor Anari is in shock. Icon’s have mercy! What else can go wrong? We are still powerless. Corban is now trying to fix up the coupling.

Event Log. 656.0830-4
Disaster! Anari just jettisoned Corban and herself out of the airlock! I tried to stop her, but she was mad. Screaming about the seven hells and demons. And now, the main power to the support systems are failing. I have just initiated my distress beacon. But the power of the signal is being impaired for some reason? May the Icons send my cry on wings…. *Sounds of a banging* Now what? Icon’s protect me!… Scept? … Scept, how can you … No! … Noooo!..

Sorry guys - overnight here in AUS a major domain registrar and DNS host is having serious issues which is causing the DNS to not resolve for the fg-con.com domain name (and many 10's of thousands of others)...

Less than two weeks to go until FG Con 10 starts! We have over 50 events now, but can always have more. We'll be locking GM event submission for all but exceptional cases next weekend, so if you're thinking of running an event and haven't registered it yet please do so ASAP. The earlier you get it in the greater chance you have of attracting players to your event.

Current GMs: Reminder! Don't re-edit your event after it's been approved unless you really have to. Editing it means it has to be re-approved by the admins, and we have no idea what you've changed. More importantly, this takes it off the list of events until approved, so it can confuse players thinking the event might have been cancelled.

If you want to add info/respond to player questions then please do so via the comments section under your event.

Trying to figure out just how jet lagged I would be as in China and flying back the Thursday before the con weekend.

As a reminder - anyone running 5e that needs pregenerated characters is welcome to use the ones I put on DM's Guild guilt free for 0 pay what it is worth. My way of saying thanks to all the people that helped me here.

Running "The Assimilation Strain" by Legendary Games. Got some pregens all geared up and ready to go. The adventure looks like a lot of fun. Come on over and sign up. It's Friday April 7th at 9pm and it will go to 1 or 2, depending on how quick it goes. Hope to see you all there!!!

(from the blurb on Amazon.com) A strange sickness afflicts the frontier settlement of Holver's Ferry, threatening to overwhelm its citizens with an alien madness. Already the town has nearly torn itself apart, and the local sheriff is missing. When the PCs brave the surrounding wilderness as the village's latest newcomers, the beleaguered townsfolk desperately turn to them for assistance. But can these erstwhile heroes trace the diseased carrier to its source and solve the mystery before they, too, succumb to The Assimilation Strain?

I am contemplating canceling my game on Saturday.

There are too many Savage Worlds games and only so many people who play Savage Worlds through FG. I am have 3 of the 5 players I need and I am going to give it until this Saturday to get at least the minimum of 4 or I will cancel.

If I cancel at least it will be one less SW game and the released players can go fill up the other games

I just ruined that idea for you! I booked. Can't let you off that easy! LOL I start work at 4 am EST that day, so it will be a long day, but a little (LOT) of coffee and I will be fine!

I have a concern. I have four players signed up for my event. I have asked the players to confirm via email. People get busy. Plans change. I have not heard from two of them. I have emailed them a second time. Still nothing. Now I am worried. If two players don't show up out of four....

What should I do? Boot them? Hope for the best? Pray to Pelor?

Perhaps open up a 5th spot and create another pre-gen...
I think you will find another player easier enough but will 5 players mess up teh scenario?

Last con I ran a game and had 5 people sign up. Come game day only 2 showed up. They both ran two characters and it was a good time.

Happy gaming!

Ouch!

Actually, I do with my regular groups. I reduplicate the character and the duplicate a different token and name. I then tell the players to run the duplicate versions into the ground, since if they perish it does not matter. They can get new duplicates the next time there are only two players. The group advances really rapidly during those sessions. They tend to be a lots of fun.

Anyways, thanks for the feedback. I am looking forward to the convention.

Good times were in my game. I actually had all 5 of the 5 people who signed up show up and everyone player their characters very well. There were laughs abound.

It's amazing that the guy who was really acing the notice rolls was the guy with the A.D.H.D Disadvantage

My first FGCON GM experience was great! I ran the Bandits Cave, a 5e adventure.All 6 people showed up and worked very well together. The party was very tactical and made it through with very little usage of the ZEKERIAN Amulet's supplied by their order (1 heal 1d8+1 day, auto activates to heal if it hasn't been used and you fall below 0 HP). There will definitely be more FGCON GM games in my future! Thanks all!

I had a really great time both playing and running in FG Con. I especially appreciated the great variety of games and genre's represented here. Everything from Fantasy of various types to Pulp to Horror to Superhero to some old Top Secret Espionage. Some really good times.

I enjoyed this weekend's FG Con playing in 2 old school AD&D adventures by vodokar (Nice Job with the ruleset!) and a 5e adventure by doseyclwn. I enjoy both of those rulesets and look forward to playing them more. I enjoyed running a 5e conversion of Tomb of Horrors. Only 1 player went down due to a lucky critical hit by a creature on the Paladin. I have to tip my hat to the players for working together as a team, making some critically successful rolls and using their skill to solve puzzles. Hoping to pick this up where we left off either at the next Con or on our own time.
