Labyrinth Lord GnG at Dragon's Lair Austin

The 4th session of Gold and Glory my Labyrinth Lord D&D campaign will be held at Dragon's Lair Austin FLGS this coming Sunday Feb. 27 from 1pm - 6pm.

New and existing players welcome.  Gold and Glory is specifically designed for episodic play.  Players can attend whenever they have time and go on an "adventure" with who ever else is able to make that day.  Instead of being locked into the same party/characters.  Or risk missing out on key plot element.  Every session is "come as you are" and hopefully leave alive and wealthier.

But, players should be sure and reap the spoils of their efforts or others will.  As witnessed in the 2nd and 3rd GnG sessions.  Where the 2nd session witnessed slaughter of many NPC's at the paws of "Winter", infamous giant wolverine, and mostly ran away.  Then in 3rd session a totally different group of players had easy time cleaning up the few survivors.  Gathered up the loot, all the equipment thus receiving a huge haul in XP and GP for very little effort.

If you're planning on going, please RSVP on the Austin D&D Meetup website. Since it's Dragon's Lair, we only have a table for 8, and I wouldn't want people to come, only to find out there isn't enough room.

Austin D&D Meetup Announcement fro this Sunday's foray.

The Kingdom is prosperous, peaceful, and BORING. When King Osric "The Reasonably Just" decreed the wild and dangerous Eastern Frontier open to exploration, none abandoned their fat and easy lives to risk almost certain doom. But when King Osric aka "The Relatively Generous" further decreed that there would be no taxes, tariffs, excises, or royal shares levied on treasure recovered from the Eastern Frontier a few desperate adventurers took notice and headed East. Those few that didn't come to their senses and turn back found themselves in the newly established Barony of Brink, last outpost of civilization and gateway to the Eastern Frontier.
Tomb robbers, out of work mercenaries, professional scoundrels, holy men looking to save or be saved, seekers of forbidden knowledge, naive farm boys with dreams of glory, assorted ne'er-do-wells, and foreigners from near and far all congregate at the Goat & Wizard Inn. Drinking the last of their coin, eyeing the competition, chasing up rumors and bar wenches. Eventually, a motley party of assorted characters gathers round a large table to plan their first foray in search of Gold and Glory. 
Are you brave or foolish enough to explore the Eastern Frontier in search of gold and glory? More to the point are you strong enough to survive its perils and return body, mind, and soul intact? 
Adventure beckons, will you answer the call?

Austin/Texas Area Game Cons 2011

Update to game convention section of Austin/Texas Game Scene 2011 post. Missed some.

OwlCon XXX Jan 28th-30th, Houstin Bam! If I could, I'd clone myself and go twice.
Was awesome, you missed it.  Ran two sessions of "B2 Caves of Chaos" to packed 8 player tables, I had a blast.  Seemed that everyone else did as well.
Aggie Con Mar 25 - 27, College Station Game, Sci-fi con, art room, lots of dealers.  Never been.  Probably no go for norm.

ChimaeraCon April 1-3, San Antonio "Chimaeracon is a South Texas festival for Gamers, Sci-Fi enthusiasts and Anime fans. Come and enjoy video games, miniatures, card games, RPGs, live action role play and much more. " Never been.  Probably won't make this one.

TexiCon May 20-22 Downtown Fort Wort
h This year the convention will focus on Role-Play. Looks like good mix of other games and other stuff (seminars, silly things)  They're expanding for 2011, taking over more of the sheraton.  Never been.  I might go for fri/sat...

North Texas RPG Con June 2-5, Irving. Heck yeah! I'll be slamming the early-bird registration page when it opens on July 1st. I went last year and had the best time. The size and old schoolishness of NTRPGCON give it a unique atmosphere. Pics.

MillenniumCon Nov 11-13, Round Rock - RPGA, Historical Minis, Boardgames. By November might be feeling the need to get my Wargame On! Will hafta wait and see.

Maybe there will be another Central Texas Mini-Con.

Aggie Con March 25th-27th

Don't know how I missed this one in my roundup of Austin/Texas are RPG Cons.  It's even closer to Austin than OwlCon (where I picked up the flyer (after being berated by my Aggie friend for not knowing 1) it existed and 2) it was even older than OwlCon)).  Won't be making this one though, too much game and not enough time to play it!
