Announcing PrinceCon 36: Champions of the Light
Sixty-three years ago, a generation saved the world; now it is our turn to save them.
The name of Malchion, Mage-King of Sumerilon, is a byword for cruelty and evil. After a long and hopeless campaign by the alliance known as “Champions of the Light”, he was destroyed against all expectation. The great General Ironhewer forced a path through Malchion’s armies, and none other than Romulus Pendragon struck the fatal blow. He led the Archmages and the High Priests and Priestesses of the Nine Gods to the final confrontation where they combined spells and prayers too deadly and dangerous to be risked again. Though they destroyed their foe, all save Pendragon were consumed along with him. In the wake of the devastation, only four of the Gods remain active enough in mortal affairs to have numbers of miracle-working priests.
The Champion’s children lived in relative peace. In turn, their children (and their adventurous contemporaries) were raised on tales of the grandparent’s exploits, wistfully imagining what they might have done in a generation called to heroism. But be careful of what you wish for: there have been a series of high-profile murders under circumstances that suggest dark magics, and word has leaked from the Justiciar’s office that each victim was or had a connection to a famous Champion.
General Ironhewer himself has come out of retirement to lead the investigation out of Hireling Hall, and is calling on adventurers of all races: Human, Elf, Dwarf, Fey, Hobbits, and even the Catfolk, otterlike Perrin and horselike Eponai to assemble at 5PM on the 11th of March, 2011 to help investigate these murders, and to discover what lies behind them.
PrinceCon 36 will be held March 11-13, 2011 on the Princeton University Campus. The Simulation Games Union’s annual convention consists of tabletop roleplaying in a shared world, centered around a common goal. Rules are a variation of the Open-Gaming version (3.5SRD) of Advanced Dungeons and Dragons, incorporating many ideas developed over the years by the SGU. Admission is $20, free to Princeton University undergraduates. Certificates are awarded for Strategic, Tactical and Role Playing excellence.
