Chaosium at Conventions in the Fall

Posted by Michael O'Brien on

Conventions in Fall

Chaosium will be at a tons of events this Autumn. You will be able to find a Chaosium booth at the HP Lovecraft Film Festival and CthulhuCon (Portland, OR), PAX Australia (Melbourne), Essen Spiel (Essen, Germany) and PAX Unplugged (Philidelphia, PA).

We love it when our GMs (and fans!) come by our booth and say "hi". And we are very happy to talk with you about running sessions at your own conventions or with us at next year's events. Never too early to be thinking about GenCon, Origins, UK Game Expo or other big events.

We will also be participating in Tabletop Gaming Live (London), AetherCon V (online everywhere), and Dragonmeet (London). 

Organized Play means game masters running games

Here are some local events we want to highlight. Know of more we should share? Tell us! We are always happy to spread the word about opportunities to run our games for people. These events are STILL looking for GMs. Fell free to contact them right away!

Asheville Scarefest

Asheville Scarefest is a horror-themed role-playing convention that meets every year close to hallowe'en in the beautiful mountains of WNC. Located in Montreat near Black Mountain, the location features friendly, supportive event staff, onsite accommodation, and enthusiastic players who want you to get your Cthulhu face (tentacles?) on!
