Hyphen-Con the 15th (2019) - General Announcements

Post by SpaceMonkey » Thu Sep 05, 2019 7:39 pm

Time to start getting ready for this year's Hyphen-con, our 15th one!

When: Saturday Nov 2nd and Sunday Nov 3rd, 2019
Where: Mordraine's Offices (thanks for hosting again Andy!) [Note, offices will be in the same location in Sorrento Valley area, details/address to follow later]
What: RPGs and Potluck on Sat, Board/Card/other games on Sun. Game swap (bring your old games to trade) either day, but Sat usually has more people and trades. Prizes & other craziness TBD
Who: is running things? We vote! So start thinking about what you want to run (max of 2 submissions per GM please). I'll be posting the 'Pimp your game' thread right after this post.
Why: Because 'The Hyph' is awesome!



Discussion, things I forgot, etc - this thread you are reading right now.
Put your hat in the ring to run games - the 'Pimp Your Game' thread.
More to come later.

... And I expect to see Mike there, as we tried very hard to accommodate him! The only thing I can think of to do extra would be a (belated) Weathertop Stabbing Day cake.

Okay, I will do all I can to be there. I do appreciate you scheduling this around my whining (which does take up a lot of my time), so the least I can do is try to make it.

Gotta think of two games to pitch, is all.

Okay, games are PITCHED. Is it a bad idea that one of my pitches is for a game I've only played once while the other is for a game that will require me reading at least one Star Wars novel before I'll feel comfortable with it? I think it probably is, but imagine the payoff...!

Is no one going to pitch a Feast of Legends game? Is there a Wendy's near Kore?
