Hey folks. We have three days left in the Kickstarter, we’re over $9,000 which means there’s gonna be a convention, and we’re now working on Stretch Goals.
Late Night Gaming
If we reach $10,000 we’ll have the Hyatt area by the bar and those tables in the area open for gaming until 2 am. We’ll bring a bunch of board games over for open gaming. We’re also planning on having some events for that area and that time frame.
We have our dice for this year, or at least the colors picked out. We’ll be ordering some but if we get to $12,000 then everyone with a badge from the Kickstarter gets a die for free. Otherwise they’re a dollar each and you can add them onto your pledge. We should mention we have sold out of dice every year and we can’t get more. If you want some dice I suggest getting in early and letting us know how many you want.
So there’s a thing we wanted to focus a little more on this year and that’s the gaming experience. The QCC is a gaming convention before it’s anything else and we want to provide the chance for some experiences you might not otherwise have. That’s why some of the levels and games you can participate in are on the Kickstarter. We wanted to give backers first crack at them. To that, here’s the list of the experiences we have going on currently:
Savage Kings of the World AKA Savage Retribution
This is a 3 session Savage Worlds mini campaign with Vickey Beaver of Obatron productions, one of the creators of the Retribution Setting. That means you get to play with the designer and get your 3 day badge.
Zombicide Knight – Play a bunch of Zombicide
This level gets you 12 hours and a mini campaign of Zombicide: Black Plague/Wolfsburg with Paul Burleson, including a custom scenario to save Mark Knapik featuring the Mark Knapik mini from 2015. You also get your 3 day badge and there’s a rumor that Paul might even have the new expansion for Zombicide at the Con that’s kickstarting right now. It’s just a rumor but that’d be a pretty cool bonus if he does have it.
Knight of Madness – Play a bunch of Cthulhu Wars
This is 12 hours of Cthulhu wars with board game maven Mike Beiter, he’ll have material from the base game and the expansions. So this is multiple boards, more factions, and all the Lovecraftian mini’s madness you can experience without owning the game. You also get your 3 day badge if you’re insane enough to back at this level.
Epic Royal Knight – Guaranteed Spot in the D&D Epic
We have the season 7 epic and the QCC will be one of the first places you can publicly play it at so you folks who love AL, this is where you want to be. This level also gets your 3 day badge.
You get to play a 3 session Savage Worlds Rippers mini campaign with Garrett Crowe. This level includes your 3 day badge and a spot in all three sessions of Garrett’s world spanning Rippers games.
Ryuutama with Rach Shelky
Ryuutama, the Natural Fantasy RPG, is an Ennie Award winning game. If you’re into JRPGs and journey styled storytelling this is a game you’ll want to play. Guest Rach Shelkey from the Toronto Gamers Association, Breakout Con, and It’s Like D&D, will be running the game on Sunday at 1pm, I can’t think of a better way to close out the con. You get a spot in the game and your 3 day badge with this level.
Play Love & Justice with Senda Linaugh Love & Justice is a Magical Girls RPG and guest Senda Linaugh AKA Giggles, AKA Skill Monkey, and the Panda who has all our hearts, is running it. Senda knows Magical Girls like no one else we know. So, if you love magical girls you’ll want to back this level. It gets you in Senda’s game on Saturday at 1pm and your 3 day badge.
Play Steamscapes with Eric Simon
Steamscapes is a Savage Worlds Historical Steampunk RPG and you can play with guest and designer of the game, Eric Simon, on Saturday at 7pm. He often brings legos as the mini’s for the game along with lego vehicles and lego props. So steampunk, history, and legos. How can you go wrong. You also get your three day badge.
