The Old School Revival Convention (OSRCon) believes that the first era of role playing games (RPG) was an uncertain age. From[masked] Dungeons & Dragons felt its way forward exploring the new realm it had created, while inspiring the creators of many other games. OSRCon believes there was a quality to those games lost in subsequent decades, as RPGs become more professional and corporate. We invite you to return to the first era of RPGs: where everyone was designing their own game; the dungeon master was all-powerful; and, clubs invented their own house rules.

Guests Of Honor are:

Ed Greenwood is a Canadian writer and editor who created the Forgotten Realms. He invented the Forgotten Realms as a child, as a fantasy world in which to set the stories he imagined, and later used this world as a campaign setting for his own personal Dungeons & Dragons playing group. He began writing articles about the Forgotten Realms for Dragon magazine beginning in 1979, and he sold the rights to the setting to TSR in 1986.

Frank Mentzer is an American fantasy author and game designer best known for his work on early materials for the Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) fantasy role-playing game. He was an employee of TSR, Inc. from 1980–1986, part of that time as Creative Advisor to the Chairman of the Board, Gary Gygax. More recently, he is a co-founder of Eldritch Enterprises
