Midwinter Mini Gamehole Con!

Being over nine months away from the next Gamehole Con is lame. So lame in fact that we are going to do something about it. As you all know, we host a monthly game day. 

Well, we are going to do something like that, but on a much larger scale, on February 22 at I’M Board in Middleton. We are going to host an all-day game day event starting at noon. Think of it as a mini-Gamehole Con. We will have games starting at noon and then at 5:00. We have a great line up of games detailed below. We will even have a Special Guest. Ernie Gygax has been gracious enough to agree to come up and run a table of his Hobby Shop Dungeon for 6 lucky players.

We will also have some Gamehole Con 2104 swag for players as well.


Our full games line up for February 22nd is as follows:


Title: Hobby Shop Dungeon
Start time: Noon
Description: Old School gaming comes back in vogue. Ernest G Gygax Jr is play testing his Hobby Shop Dungeon which he hopes to have on the market by the end of the year. Thousands of others have walked down these halls - now after some refitting see if you are up to 1970'S D&D. Partial pre-generated character provided which you must tweak. Be ready to amuse my faithful War Hound "K.C."!


Title: R-2: The Investigation of Hydell
Start time: Noon
Description: R-2, The Investigation of Hydell is a classic RPGA module authored by the great Frank Mentzer. We will be playing this using the D&D Next rules. If you are unfamiliar with Next, I believe they play like a simplified version of 1E. Pre-generated characters will be provided.

As far as the adventure - Slinks are clean, well-cared for, happy and obedient semi-humans. Why are they content to be slaves? They are protected by law, owned by many a wealthy merchant and even have church approval. So, why is the high cleric MacKurian suspicious? Can you sneak into the old ruin and find out what Slinks really are and where they are coming from?

 
Title: Call of Cthulhu
Start time: Noon
Description: Brace yourself for the unenviable position of brushing up against the elder gods themselves. At the start of the game, you awaken in a US Military Hospital in Haiti suffering from on-going and prolonged blackouts. The last seven days of your life have vanished from your mind. Is it amnesia, or a fear of remembering? What happened and what the hell do you do now? Pre-generated characters will be provided.

Title:  Hobby Shop Dungeon Part II

Start Time:  5:00 pm

Once the smoke clears and the surviving characters patch up the wounds.  The Treasure is diced for and the gold chinks in the pockets.  The show is not over.  Ernest would like you all to follow him (symbolically) to the Red Dragon Inn.  Grab a deck of cards and be the last once standing with loot still in your pockets.
 

Title: The Adventures of Strange Company [Savage Worlds]
Start time: 5:00 pm
Description: They were called the Greatest Generation because of their courage in the face of great evil and willingness to sacrifice to make the world a better place. But some who fought and gave their lives confronted even greater evil than we could possibly imagine and endured horrors that are best left undisturbed. Welcome to Weird War II! Join Strange Company - trapped behind enemy lines - as they try to make their way to the safety of the Allied forces in Europe during WWII. Will they make it back in one piece after they realize there are even scarier things than Hitler's shock troops? Pre-generated characters will be provided. No experience necessary. Quick-start rules can be downloaded for free at http://www.peginc.com/freebies/SWcore/TD06.pdf.


Title: Pathfinder Society Scenario #5–09: The Traitor’s Lodge
Start time: 5:00 pm
Description: A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 3–7.
During the recent attack on Nerosyan, Pathfinders sought out a local venture-captain to aid in the city’s defense. What they found instead suggested the leader had not only fled recently but had played a part in the demons’ offensive. Venture-Captain Jorsal has determined that the safety and integrity of the Pathfinder Society requires that a team delve into the sealed basement beneath the abandoned lodge to determine what other plans his turncoat colleague may have set in motion.
Content in "The Traitor’s Lodge" also contributes to the ongoing storyline of the Grand Lodge faction.

 

As always, the first six to RSVP and specifically state which game they want to play will get sat.  Everyone is free to play both in the noon and 5:00 games if there is space in those games.

      Just making sure there is room for the 5pm Traitors Lodge for me, I will be showing up with my level 4 cleric since there are two spots still open.

      February 20, 2014

      February 20, 2014

  • Zack N.

    For Traitor's Lodge, I just wanted to get a roll call on players.

    February 18, 2014

    • Zack N.

      I'm planning on running my 6th level archer. But I have a 3, two 4s, a 5, and two 7s.

      February 18, 2014

    • James

      If I am allowed to play level 4 cleric, and I do like playing up.

      February 19, 2014

  • Phillip L.

    I'm in for the Call of Cthulhu, if space is still open.

    February 17, 2014

    • Joshua H.

      OK - you are in. Are you staying for the 5pm games?

      February 18, 2014

    • Phillip L.

      agh, I don't think I can stay for the five o'clock games. Thank you, though!

      February 19, 2014

  • James

    I have a level 4 I Cleric of Calistria that I would be willing to play in the Traitors Lodge since there are still two spots open.

    I'd be down for the Investigation of Hydell.

    February 18, 2014

  • Ben R.

    I'm game for the Traitor's Lodge, provided there is space remaining. If not I could play in R-2 if the PFS is full. And if R-2 is full I could do Emridy Meadows.
    Thanks.

    January 10, 2014

    • Alex K.

      Ben - I want to make sure we are on the same page. Do you want to play in the noon R2 game in addition to the 5:00 PFS game? There are still spots open, but not many. please let me know right away.

      January 29, 2014

    • Ben R.

      Sorry I forgot to get back to you, but your updated schedule appears to be correct.

      February 12, 2014

  • Joni P.

    If it's not too much trouble, I'd like to switch my 5 p.m. slot from PFS Traitor's Lodge to Josh's Savage Worlds game. Thanks!

    February 10, 2014

    • Alex K.

      That should be no problem Joni.

      February 11, 2014

  • Scott P.

    I want to play Hobby Shop and either Savage Worlds or Emridy Meadows. Is Emridy Meadows going to be run at Gary Con? I know the other games are and I'm trying to get games played so I can narrow my (huge) list of games at Gary Con I'm interested in playing. I need to be at three or four tables at once to get everything in.

    1 · January 7, 2014

    • Scott P.

      Both sessions, please Alex.

      January 29, 2014

    • Alex K.

      Got it. Thanks Scott.

      January 29, 2014

  • Mark C.

    Looks like fun. I'll see if I can make it as we get closer and the weather is more apparent.

    January 29, 2014

  • Steve C.

    Hi! Cory told me about the con, and I'd love to play in the Hobby Shop Dungeon as well. A chance to play with a legend? Sign me up!

    January 7, 2014

    • Alex K.

      You are in.

      January 7, 2014

    • Alex K.

      Steve - do you plan on sticking around and playing part II that evening?

      January 29, 2014

  • Cory S.

    You mean we can playtest the Hobby Shop Dungeon?! Definitely count me in for the noon game! I just got my copy of Gygax magazine #3 and have been reading all about it, and it sounds awesome. Also, I'm totally willing to throw the toy for K.C. the entire game if that'll get me a seat at the table!

    January 7, 2014

    • Alex K.

      You got it Cory. You are in.

      1 · January 7, 2014

      January 29, 2014

  • Dave B.

    I'm in for the CoC game (hopefully, the GM stays healthy this time :) and the Savage Worlds game.

    January 7, 2014

    • Dave B.

      It looks like I won't be able to make it on the 22nd, so my spots are open again. Eventually I'll be able to make it to one of these...

      January 28, 2014

    PFS
    Brad
    Kevin K

    January 26, 2014

  • Zack N.

    CoC and Traitor's lodge still open?

    January 25, 2014

    • Zack N.

      Meaning those are the ones I'm interested in.

      January 25, 2014

    I'd like to play in R-2 at noon, and the PFS game at 5, if they both still have openings.

    I'm in for R-2 @ Noon and The Battle of Emridy Meadows at 5PM

      January 7, 2014

    • Alex K.

      Brian - we just had to cancel the Emridy Meadows game because of the GM. You can either pick one of the other evening games or hang on and wait to see what we replace it with. Sorry about that.

      January 21, 2014

    I'd also like to RSVP for the Call of Cthulhu game.
