Bios from JonCon '98 registration form:



  • Raymond Cavin

    Raymond is married with children but he doesn't sell shoes. He doesn't even wear them much come to think of it. He laughs like a hyena on steroids and once slid across the floor and punched our friend David Greenwood in the face, on accident even.


  • Dave Hoffrichter

    Dave is like the little guy in the family. You know, our very own Arnold from Different Strokes. Or our very own Tattoo from Fantasy island. Only Dave doesn't have a surrogate father who can grant you any wish you want, his sister is a bitch though.


  • Todd Mack

    Todd recently won the dopest, fresh daddy, pimpster award in the "It's about damn time you took your damn hat off!" category. He's vowed to never run another game with our gorup again because as he puts it, "Those boys are just plain and simple... from the devil." Also, he's really cute and available for anyone interested... um, chicks only.


  • Mike Rasmussen

    Mike is a very macabre and mysterious old pagan who is living with his main squeeze Stacy. Together they live in sin somewhere in the bowels of St. Paul. People often tell Mike he looks like Jesus and sometimes Mike banishes them to hell for it.


  • Nicole Scales

    Nicole only games once a year (at JonCon) but is pretty okay at it anyway. She is the freaky lokoing chick in the corner that has her nose pierced. In her last movie appearance we stuck her in a tree and covered her with blood. It was cool.


  • Aneese Skaff

    Damn foreigner.


  • Brad White

    Brad got married a while back and the ndid the old "exit stage left" routine. His wife not only wears the pants in the family but also the shirts, the shoes, the belts and the underwear. You see, Brad is a Mandinka warrior who games and stalks the night butt nekkid.


  • Mary Wood

    Mary, like Nicole, games with us once a year (at JonCon) and even though she doesn't like the founder and star of JonCon (Jon) very much, he thinks she's just adorable, for a dame with short hair. Also, the entier population of WI thinks she's a dyke, you know, cuz she kisses girls or something.*



  • Editor's note: That last part probably isn't true. But then again, how the hell do I know?



JonCon '99 (Fourth Annual)

Held at the Pad, abode of Jon and Ryan, as I recall.


JonCon '99 Event List


  • 7th Sea Sea Dogs

    Come sail the high seas of adventure when the leader of Ussura hires you to retrieve one of their most important artifacts: his daughter.


  • AD&D Below the Crystalmists (Brad)

    The ruins have been long known. Now a journal has provided you with an entrance. Do lost texts of the ancient Suel lie below?


  • AD&D Dreams (Lanica)

    Every person has a price, and a dream. Play villains being paid to find a dream. Forgotten Realms.


  • AD&D House Wreckers (Brad)

    Those cruel adventurers! Breaking into your lair, slaying your relative, taking scavenged loot! Who do they think they are! See how the other half lives. Play mid level humanoids in Greyhawk.


  • AD&D Sword of Dragon's Doom (Brian & Ryan)

    A town in desperate need of aid. A legendary weapon. A labyrinth of evil. Only a small band of heroes can save them. The infamous game returns: can you survive?


  • Cthulhu New Yoth Order


  • Call of Cthulhu Hollow Winds (Darrell)

    Your presense is required. Your sanity will be slowly shredded before the dark terrors that lurk within your soul. Only your flesh will remain behind, if you are lucky.


  • Deadlands Doomtown 1877 (Lanica)

    Who lives in that old house? Where are all the corpses going from the cemetary? Does this sausage taste funny to you?


  • Middle Earth Too Quiet for Comfort (Bob)

    Sharky's men haven't been around for a few months. Some people think this is a sign that order is returning but Danners and Co. know better.


  • Star Wars White Silence


  • Vampire Juka Finn's Lot (Jen)

    An entire section of Southeast Minneapolis has disappeared, incaccesible to kindred and completely ignored by the blood dolls. What do you suppose the primogen council wants with you?


  • Werewolf The Silver Pack (Jon)

    Gaia's chosen warriors embrace the Phoenix totem and rage against the Wyrm's ultimate pack of Black Spiral Dancers, Zhyzhak's Brood


  • White Wolf Legend of the Ghoul (Dan)

    Many believe the faithful of the Kindred are simple toys, lost in the Jyhad, unable to function without their masters. Those fools would be wrong of course, and if the Ghouls had any say in the matter, those fools would be dead.


  • Project Twilight The Invisibles (Jon)

    Every paranoid fantasy, every conspiracy theory, every alleged cover-up and government deception, every tabloid crank story you've ever heard... imagine if all of it were true. Which side are you on?
