MACE:West Hickory, NC Mar. 30-Apr 1, 2012

#1 Postby Muse » Mon Nov 07, 2011 3:11 pm

It might seem a little early to put this out there, seeing as MACE is this weekend and all, but I wanted to give you plenty of time to think about joining Clint and I for a con in Our Neck of the Woods!

Last year was MACE:West's first year and something must've gone right since they want to do it again. :) As always, I'm organizing a SSN so if you want to GM, PM me!

Sadly, I won't be able to make it. I'm sure y'all will be able to have fun without me, which only makes me sadder. :cry:

I'd appreciate it if someone could get Clint out to a Waffle House to cause trouble in my name. Bonus points if you send me a copy of the police report!

I need to go ahead and make arrangements to attend. It's likely I'll run a game or two.

Poor CUDGEL seems to be a bit shy in the Fri Afternoon and Sunday time slots for RPGs... Which leaves me tempted to step up to the plate and run a game or two.

I'll see if I can figure something out in the next day or so and see if I can get finagled in with Ron at this late date.


My greatest fear is that with so few games available I'll end up with you lot at my table. :wink:

I'm going to try to make it! It'll be a 3-hour drive one way, but with the fun I had at MACE in November, I think it'll be worth it! :mrgreen:

I think the most fun with the pony game was finding pony-friendly phrases for various vulgarities. :)

Now as for Mace West, I have good news and bad news.

Good News is that Ron told me while the schedule is a bit sparse, there's been a number of GMs that haven't gotten back to him yet. So more games-- hopefully!--on the way

The Bad News is that I proposed a couple games anyway. So, take that!

Game: Savage Worlds
Title: Pirates of the Flowstone
The Flowstone: The region where rocks float through the void between worlds, swirling and twirling in an eternal dance. A person can--if brave enough--jump from rock to rock, exploring the Flowstone from outer edge to the deepest, mystery shrouded depths. Trade moves from world to world over and through the Flowstone... And where there is trade, there is opportunity.

And here be pirates.

Pirates of the Flowstone will be run with the Savage Worlds rules, including rules from the Fantasy Companion and Super Powers Compantion. Expect a mixture of characters (player and NPC) from magical to melee, from fantasy to psychic.


Game: Savage Worlds
Title: Tarn's Crossing, a Hairy Tale

Tarn's Crossing, a Hairy Tale: A town in need of heroes!
The village of Tarn's Crossing has sent out the call for heroes to help solve a mystery most dire. A strand of mystery weaves through the town of Tarn's Crossing, leading the heroes through a hairy situation. Who, or what, has been stealing the hair from atop their young lady's heads?


Tarn's Crossing, a Hairy Tale uses Savage Worlds rules, including rules from the Fantasy Companion.


Probably TMI for this thread, but hey.... been years since I've ran a con game. I'm kinda excited. :P

By the way, is SSN pretty well covered with GMs for the con?

Yep, SSN is covered. It's Clint, Will and Tommy Geddings, and Calvin Thompson. Thanks for running, gleep! Those are... interesting submissions.

Now to turn my attention from the last con to the next one... which is MACE West! Yay!

For those who don't know yet, this con is almost literally in our back yard. If you ever wanted to game with Clint and I, this is the con to do it!

Hotel rooms are a low LOW $65/night with up to 4 people in it. Badges are still only $20 until March 23rd. And the Grinning Goblin will be there to feed us all weekend. AND there will be Girl Scout Cookies for sale on Saturday.

So if you're on the fence about going, get moving. :)

I'm flying the red-eye back from a one-day trip to Columbus, OH after a visit to see if I'll mesh in their Ph.D. on Friday night and driving up to Hickory that night so I can be at MACE West Saturday and Sunday. That's how awesome this Con is going to be!

You know, Hickory does have an airport... and it's only 3 miles from the convention. :)

Will MACE Westers get to experience The Ponyville Horror?
