Type of Game Session
Usually presented in one to two sessions, tabletops are roleplaying games intended for 5-6 ad-hoc or team-based players. Some designers choose to use published system materials, whereas others prefer to utilise modified rules. Independent game designers are welcomed, however we do require a link to your game site to allow participants to read about your game system.
Freeforms & Live Action Roleplaying Games (LARPs) are larger games usually intended for anyway from 10 to 60 players. Players are typically encouraged to physically "act" out the role of their character and the games are almost always based on a custom designed system or no system at all. PLEASE NOTE: No weapons play permitted.
Demonstration games are a way to promote a new or existing system in just 1 - 2 sessions and are useful for independent designers who would like to promote their game or players wanting to introduce a game system to the local role playing community. These sessions usually involve more of a discussion on how the system works and then some play testing.
Miniatures Game Tournaments
Miniatures Games fall under the banner of "War Gaming", where players field armies consisting of scale models of soldiers, vehicles, etc and battle opponents in order to achieve objectives or score points. Most tournaments require players to bring their own figures though demonstration games are sometimes available.
Card Game Tournaments
Card tournaments are a fun way to spread awareness of a given card game and can be anything from being social and casual in nature to being highly competitive. You may wish to offer a prize as an incentive for competitive tournaments.
Special events cover any sort of individual or unusual activity offered by the designers or the organisers of the convention. They often provide ample opportunity for both individual players and teams to socialise with their gaming peers in a fun and sometimes competitive environment.
Learn 2 RP
Learn to Roleplay (L2RP) are specially designed sessions that act as an introduction to roleplaying in general and to systems may not have played before. Perfect for beginners, or those keen to learn new systems, L2RP is a chance to experience different genres/styles of role-playing.
