Posted by Michael O'Brien on

Gen Con logo

More than 1,000 character sheets printed later, and all our sessions at Gen Con have sold out! If you missed a chance to play those scenarios (or orchestrate them as a Keeper!) this Gen Con, don't despair. This fall those convention scenarios will be available through the Cult of Chaos Library over on the Chaosium Forums at BRP Central. Join the Cult of Chaos to facilitate them for others, or keep an eye out for Cult of Chaos sightings in your area to play them.

Here are the tournament scenarios we'll be running at Gen Con—for more than a 1000 players, on 206 tables, over three days, many thanks to Todd, our director of organized play and his team of dedicated volunteer GMs:
