Last Call for ConCarolinas 2019 GAME MASTERS!

This is the last email I am going to send out for GMs at ConCarolinas 2019.  We still have room for games, especially RPGs.

ORGANIZED PLAY

There will be Pathfinder Society (PFS) as well D&D 5e Adventurers League (D&D AL). Maggie Keeble and Douglas Edwards are handling Pathfinder/Starfinder Society.  Bill Boivin will be handling D&D AL.  Both schedules are up in OGRe now.  We also have Shadowrun Missions games but most of those already have GMs.

NON-ORGANIZED PLAY

For those that wish to propose other general play/scheduled game events for ConCarolinas 2019, the best way to do that is through OGRe. If the current convention setting for OGRe is another con (see in the upper right hand corner), then click Change Con to change over to ConCarolinas 2019.  Preregistration opens April 26, so I would like to have as many games on the schedule before then as possible.

NEW**  ADVENTURES IN FILBAR

If you want to run and are not sure what to run, Adventures in Filbar is an option for those familiar with D&D 5e.  See our post about Adventures in Filbar here (https://www.justusproductions.com/all-justus-events-we-are-seeking-gm-for-adventures-in-filbar-dd-5e/).  You get cool swag to give out to your players, a free adventure and support directly from the writer.  Contact me if you are interested.

PROPOSE GAMES THROUGH OGRE

Go to ogre.justusproductions.com. Log in (Make an account if you don’t have one. If you were a GM for us at any point in time since 2006, you more than likely have an account.). Click Propose Event on the left menu. Three 4-hour sessions or 12 hours of gaming gets you in free.

ALTERNATE OPTIONS

If you prefer to email me, please include as much information about your event as possible. It is sort of a hassle to go back and forth with questions with so many GMs. Include game name and any link that will explain the game and/or provide the description, especially if it is a obscure game. Also include schedule preferences keeping in mind our standard 4 hr slot schedule (although you are not limited to that schedule).

Contact ConCarolinas Con Chair if you have any business or money questions, or vendor room questions. Anything gaming schedule or game room layout related, ask us. Thanks again for all you have done in the past and I hope we can work together again.

Rest In Peace: Richard “Warbunny” Desautels

A good friend to JustUs Productions and MACE – Richard “Warbunny” Desautels – passed away last night (April 7, 2019) from issues with his lung. Hhe would be greatly miss.  He was always ready to run games for MACE and it was always Harnmaster.  We all need to raise a glass, say a prayer and celebrate another life of a good gamer and friend.

What I remember about him is his relentless passion for Harnmaster and how he would run it all weekend at early MACE events.  Of course, as time went on, he ran less and less.  I was always entertaining and a joy to talk to.  I will sorely miss him.

ConCarolinas 2019: Wild West Exodus Miniatures

JustUs Productions is proud to announce more great gaming added to the gaming schedule of ConCarolinas 2019.  Discover Games – an official demo team for Warcradle  – will run demos of Wild West Exodus Miniatures Friday 6:00 PM-Midnight and Saturday 10:00 AM-10:00 PM.  They will be between 1 hour and 2 hour demos, so feel free to drop by his table and ask when his next demo is going to start.

Please see our gaming schedule through OGRe.  You must be registered for the convention to register for games.

 


The Game

Wild West Exodus is a miniatures game played by 2 to 4 players in control of the faction of their choice. In the world of WWX, every model has the potential to be a hero or a villain. The game mechanics and rule set feature exciting game play from the first dice roll. Each player will be allowed to field a posse of 3 to 40 models. The WWX rules have been designed to allow for scaling of the game to high or low model counts while maintaining a dynamic and fast-paced game tempo.

One of the most exciting parts of the Wild West Exodus game mechanic is the reusable influence pool. The influence pool will give players the option to gamble away a set amount of tokens in return for a reroll of the dice. Be careful what you gamble on because once the tokens are committed they are lost for that turn. The D10 system gives the game life and options that round out easily and allow for quick decision making.

Quick Start Rules Are Available Here

In the twilight years of the Nineteenth Century, mankind is perched upon a new age of discovery and enlightenment. But beneath the hope and optimism, a rising darkness taints the air, touching the heart of every man, woman, and child. The United States has clawed its way out of a terrible civil war, but the wounds are deep. The nation finds itself poised on the edge of ruin, the agony of division eating at its very marrow.

Into this dark time a light of hope emerges, carried from the Old World by Dr. Burson Carpathian, scientist, visionary, and would-be savior. But Dr. Carpathian, too, follows a path laid out for him by the darkest of powers: a force of remorseless corruption. The Dark Council. Under the influence of these mysterious strangers, the men and women of this terrible new age struggle with every fiber of their being, clawing for the least scrap of victory. There is no certain future as a continent is torn apart, each isolated faction struggling to maintain their share of power beneath the gathering darkness.

Wild West Exodus is a dynamic, fast-paced semi-skirmish game in a world very much like our own, but twisted by the forces of deepest evil. An advanced D10 system is coupled with an innovative Influence mechanic to simulate the powers of the Dark Council upon their unwitting pawns. Players must choose how they will gamble with the power of their patrons: spread the Influence throughout a turn, hoping to ease destiny onto a brighter path, or hold the influence, to be entirely cast upon one roll of the dice?

The game features a full range of highly detailed 35mm models, sculpted by some of the best digital sculptors in the industry. These amazing miniatures are produced on the best equipment, using the highest levels of technology, and drives this action-based whirlwind of darkness and death into an ever-evolving future brimming with desolation and despair.

Join us on our dark journey into an alternate history where a hidden evil strives to corrupt even the purest champions of Man. Take your first step upon this dread path today!

ConCarolinas 2019: DeepWars/ShadowSea Miniatures

JustUs Productions is proud to announce more great gaming added to the gaming schedule of ConCarolinas 2019.  Mac McClelland will be returning to ConCarolinas with some of his amazing crafted terrain and running demos of Antimatter Games DeepWars and ShadowSea Miniatures. Preregister for this event in OGRe.  You must be registered for ConCarolinas 2019.

 

 


DeepWars is a 28mm scale tabletop wargame set in an alternate history of Earth in the late 17th century, where fortune seekers, scientists and scoundrels have discovered a lost land with an underground sea miles beneath the frozen surface of the southernmost continent. Ancient technology recovered from their first excursions on land has allowed these adventurers to develop new ether-powered dive suits and weapons and return to the bottom of the underground sea to battle with deadly marine enemies over powerful artifacts, glittering crystals and golden treasure on the seafloor.

Players choose from four distinct forces to vie for control over the watery abyss, creating warbands from four to eight miniatures. Each character in the warband can improve after battles, giving the game an RPG feel, and players can even design their own characters, weapons and “ether-tech” artifacts. DeepWars includes multiple types of scenarios, including exploration of wrecks on the seafloor, adventures in ancient cities of cyclopean structures, battles among fields of geothermal chimneys, submarine boarding and many others.

Above all, DeepWars is about fun and fast gameplay, with scenarios lasting less than an hour. The rules are designed to be modular, so they are easy to learn but have enough complexity that players can game in a variety of styles. Players might choose to blast their opponents, stealthily sneak into ruins to steal artifacts, or wield magic spells to control the minds of their foes, whatever it takes to salvage the treasures of the deep.

ShadowSea – Conquest of the Underground World, or simply “ShadowSea”, is a tactical miniatures game set in an alternate history of Earth in the 17th century, where an underground world was lost to history until seekers of fortune ventured into the nighted depths to confront the rulers of the ancient seas and guardians of forgotten relics. Ten years have passed since the initial discovery, the surface entrance now frozen shut, yet adventurers have returned through a deep underground ocean entrance within ancient salvaged submersibles to again challenge the forces of the Underlands.
