MACE West 2021 Cancelled

It is with regret and sadness that we must make a decision we thought we would never have to make, but we must cancel MACE West this year.

We have been thinking on this for several weeks now and unfortunately need to make this decision. For those who had registered or signed up to run, thank you for doing so. We appreciate your support for the con.

For those of you who have registered as attendees, we will begin your refunds this weekend. We are already talking with the hotel for 2022. So keep an eye out for dates and information.

Thank you for your understanding and support. I hope that everyone stays healthy and keeps on gaming.

MACE West 2021: Official GM Call!

MACE West 2021

February 26-28 2021

DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Asheville – Biltmore

Asheville, NC

THIS IS THE OFFICIAL GM CALL FOR MACE WEST 2021!!

Many of our regular events are returning. If that has changed, I hope those responsible for coordinating those get to me as soon as possible.

For those that wish to propose scheduled events for MACE West – RPGs, board games, cards games and the like – the best way to do that is 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, with fewer getting you a discount. See our discount policy on our web site at justusproductions.com for information on the discounts.

If you prefer to email us, 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 if you have any questions.

MACE 2020: Clint Black of Pinnacle Entertainment Group

JustUs Productions is pleased to announce for MACE 2020, Clint Black will be running Savage Worlds Adventure Edition on Friday night and Saturday night.  

The Con Game (Savage Worlds)

It’s time once again for the greatest fandom convention in the Southern Mid-North Carolina region during late autumn, MASE! The Meeting Assemblage Symposium Expo is celebrating it’s 24th (month) anniversary!

The convention heads, Ref and John, have pulled out all the stops with lots of special guests!

Game designers like Shaun Headsley whose RPG very nearly funded on Kickstarter!

And of course you know, Mac Murser, the famous voice actor and GM of Literal Roll. His cousin will be there! Plus special appearances from both the TV and movie Bat-Lad, Teen Mutate Ninjitsu Tortoises, and other famous shows…of replicas of their vehicles AND the people who made them!

It looks to be the best MASE ever! At least it better be, since it’s your job to insure it all runs smoothly, and Ref and John are counting on you.

Bring your tongue firmly planted in cheek for this romp through a convention where everything will most definitely not go as planned. You know, like every other con.

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

About Clint Black

20130405_233536.clintblack.slide

Clint Black is Savage Worlds Core Rules Brand Manager for Pinnacle Entertainment Group. Savage Worlds is the Origins award-winning roleplaying game that is one of the most popular systems in the hobby. Clint also won a Silver ENnie at GenCon 2011 for Space 1889: Red Sands. Clint started as a freelance writer with Pinnacle over ten years ago, but his involvement grew significantly with the advent of Savage Worlds. He transitioned from a playtester on the original design team to the creator of one of the first and most popular books for the system (supervillain setting Necessary Evil, now in its third printing) to one of the designers and ultimately brand manager of the core rules. Along the way, he worked on multiple Savage Worlds projects, including the Horror, Fantasy, and Super Powers Companions, Weird War 2, Space 1889, and of course the landmark Pinnacle setting, Deadlands.  Additionally, Clint serves as the face of Pinnacle on their forums, acting as the Official Rules Answer Man and administrator for years. He counts this opportunity to hang out and chat with fans online as one of the perks of the job.

He is married to multiple award-winning RPG editor Jodi Black and is the father of two awesome gamer daughters. In 2012, Clint Black won an Gold ENnie Award for Savage Worlds Deluxe.
