Welcome to the North Texas RPG Convention! The NTRPG Con focuses on old-school Dungeons & Dragons gaming (OD&D, 1E, 2E, or Basic/Expert) as well as any pre-1999 type of RPG produced by the classic gaming companies of the 70s and 80s (TSR, Chaosium, FGU, FASA, GDW, etc). We also support retro-clone or simulacrum type gaming that copies the old style of RPGs (Swords & Wizardry, Castles & Crusades, and others). ANY RPG games are welcome at the Con, be it D&D 4e, Pathfinder, or something we haven't even heard of, just be sure you can fill a table with 5-6 people before you ask to have it added to the schedule...
Our 6th annual convention dates are: Thursday June 5, 2014 @ 1100 until Sunday June 8, 2014 @ 1800
Early Bird registration opens June 11, 2013 and runs until July 31, 2013. During the Early Bird Registration period, you can save $5.00 on the full Con registration fee, buy Con T-Shirts, and purchase discounted "squeaky cage" tickets in preset quantities. (you can also purchase Vendor Tables, Convention Rooms, Sponsorships, and Advertising at a discounted price as well during the month of July 2013)
Please look around, read up and register if you plan to attend. You must pay for one day or a weekend before you are able to register for a game. (though game registration doesn't open until midnight April 15th, 2014... midnight is the beginning of the day, not the end)
If you want to sign up to run a game, please contact Doug Rhea at email@example.com or Mike Badolato at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Con will be held at the DFW Airport Marriot South: 4151 Centreport Boulevard, Fort Worth, Texas 76155 (dfwairportmarriott.com). It's just south of the airport and really ought to carry an Arlington/Grand Prairie address, but Forth Worth has a long "finger" that spans over into the area. We have a special rate for con attendees that is in effect until May 26th, 2014 so don't delay in getting your reservations. The direct link for reservations at the Con rate is posted in the forums, or you can click the link above.
We have confirmed guests (and waiting on responses from others) attending in 2014: ( Chris Clark, Jeff Dee, Kevin Hendryx, Jennell Jaquays, Tim Kask, Doug Kovacs, David 'Diesel' LaForce, Frank Mentzer, Erol Otus, Sandy Petersen, Lawrence Schick, Dr. Dennis Sustare, James M. Ward, Steve Winter ). The lineup includes several of the more important figures in the history of RPGs as a whole and Dungeons & Dragons in particular.
Game Event registration won't be open until April 15th, 2014! You must register for the con and pay your fee (either daily or weekend) before you are able to register for games.
Hope to see you here !
