Featured Events

Factions: On Thursday night local game designer Adam Reimenschneider will be joining us to run a new story from his self published "Factions RPG". Factions is the first game line released by Adam's Other Court Games. Depicting reality-bending will workers and occultists, Factions is a game of conspiracies, struggle between secret societies, strangeness, and power. Visit for more information on his RPG and his novel based in the factions world.


Iron DM: An incredibly cool event started in JonCon 07 hosted is back again for more action! A handful of DM's will take one hour to create a D&D adventure from scratch incorporating six key ingredients supplied by JonCon. Each DM will receive the same six ingredients. Players have that same hour to create characters - and the DM can only tell them five words to guide their creation process! The event was hugely successful last year and we're very excited to host the return of the Iron DM. This story telling event of epic proportions will run Saturday afternoon with the Award Ceremony to follow during the dinner break.


Last year's key ingredients:

  1. Your story must begin or end with a moment of racial intolerance  
  2. Golem(s)
  3. A devastating natural disaster - (such as an ...) earthquake, volcanic eruption, monsoon, etc, etc.
  4. White sand beach(es) or dune(s)
  5. An NPC - Adaen - an alchemist with an addiction
  6. Must have an NPC quote "If the enemy is in range, so are you."
