Contrary to popular belief, gaming isn’t the only kind of fun you can have at a game con. We are sensitive to the needs of the adventurous geek and gamer who has pitched in to be part of the con but may not want to spend every waking moment hovering over the table. Yeah… trust me. We know how to offer quality entertainment opportunities outside of the doldrums of endless gaming. For questions about these and other events, contact our event coordinator at [email protected].
Dungeon 'O Dooooooom: The evil wizard, Eleftherios Michailides, has summoned a living dungeon to the land of Salmar in the Kingdom of Kourenth. Well, it is believed he is the one who did it, since he yelled the proclamation at the town square. He promised all sorts of doom and death. The people laughed at him as they always had. Days after he departed, goblins and orcs were seen closer to town. Clashes with the trade caravans became a regular event. Once it escalated to the dead rising from their graves, it was obvious this was indeed a serious situation. A call has been put out to all the heroes of the land to aid the kingdom. Help save the land and become heroes whose names will echo through the years.
The Dungeon ‘O Dooooooom is a 3D Dungeon Delve experience where you play one of 6 heroes who are trying to fight their way to the center of the dungeon in order to destroy the evil that has brought the dungeon to the realm. When a player character dies, there will be a bone taken from the character sheet and placed in the dungeon to mark that character’s death. We use Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition rules. Never played a role-playing game? No worries. We will teach you the basics. This is a come-and-go game. If you have 15 minutes, 1 hour, or more stop by and visit. Observers are always welcome.
Find the dungeon in the Great Hall throughout the convention.
