MACE 2021 Featured New Game: Neon Blood

We are proud to welcome RPG designer Scott Welker back to MACE in 2021.  He will be running demos of their new role playing game, Neon Blood, an OSR cyberpunk game, which is currently in Kickstarter.  He will also be demoing his new game Baserds!

You can see the schedule of games as well as when they are running demos on our Online Gaming Registration system, OGRe.  You must be registered for MACE 2021 to participate.

About Neon Blood

Neon Blood is an OSR/DIY (we call our work Dirty-OSR) inspired cyberpunk game set in a version of the world in 2035. We don’t need to go very far into the future to see how culture, tech, and politics might shape the future of humanity. It is dystopian, but all hope is not lost for ye who enter here.

The goal of this game is to take the OSR-based RPG system and roughen up the edges, throw in some chrome, pump it full of HiCap neon, and light it on fire. The rules start with the d20, but we make a firefight feel like a frenetic two-way range where your decisions and training will be a matter of life and death. And hacking will never be boring or the side gig; it easily occurs in real-time alongside a firefight without disruption to either team.

The combat is brutal and deadly, and death is one bullet or NovaWire away. Zero hit points isn’t the end, but neither is it a handful of chances to not experience what comes for everyone. Even hackers aren’t safe; play hacking games, win deadly prizes. As awesome as this sounds, combat is full of player-facing choices to keep your character alive and gunning. But everything comes at a cost in Neon Blood.

About BASTERDS!

BASTERD is an amalgam of the best features and choices of 5E, coupled to the best concepts of the OSR movement, and mixed to the level that is best for a solid tabletop campaign. Take time, be careful, and enjoy a different kind of game where the Ability Scores actually matter.

The Characters are those brave or foolish few who can be bought, coerced, engendered, or outright seek fortune and glory themselves to hunt ancient treasures, artifacts, relics, and forgotten lore to keep the Runewyrm slumbering for one more night.

MACE CraftCon 2021 Contest

We will have Crafting folks at the con this year.

DM Scotty, Wyloch and James Floyd Kelly will be gracing us and showing their skills. Alas, our crafting schedule is slim, but this will give them time to play games and relax.

Below is information on what we are doing this year. You can sign up in OGRe soon. Depending on how many folks we have sign up, we may have to have a cut off number due to room size.

Please get in touch if you have any questions.

Please share this jpg with all the other crafting folks you know.

We are working on prize support from Proxxon, The Army Painter and a few others.

MACE 2021 Featured Game: Hunt Master

Ray Franks of Comic Monstore will be demoing his game Hunt Master at MACE 2021 on Saturday (maybe more of he can arrange it).  Join him for short demos of a thrilling card game of monster hunting. See OGRe for his specific schedule, click on Event Schedule.  You must be registered for MACE 2021 to participate.

Hunt Master Card Game

Hunt Master is a card game that plays like a board game. Players move pawns between locations as they hunt for monsters hiding within decks beside each location. The first player to find all five of their monsters wins. Monster Cards are hiding amongst Action Cards that keep the game moving. Monster abilities can give you advantages or trip up your opponents.

MACE 2021: UPDATE TO COVID RESTRICTIONS

Charlotte and Mecklenberg County now have a new mask mandate. Masks must be worn inside all buildings. This took place last week.

So for MACE, we will be following that rule as well.

We will have Hand Sanitizer out for folks to use and we will be distancing the tables as much as possible.

We want everyone to have fun, but we do want to work together to keep everyone safe. I will post more as I know what will be requited by the City, County and the hotel.

Thanks.

MACE 2021: UNPUB Games

MACE 2021 will once again host several brilliant game designers and publishers attending for the sole purpose of demoing and play testing their unpublished games.  We feel very privileged and honored that these fine designers would use MACE as a testing ground for their ideas.  

Here are a list of games currently on the schedule that are marked with the UNPUB tag, but we will have more.

UNPUB games on the schedule include


Mountaineer Games

Zombie Frenzy

An unpublished game with that as a working title. Demoing it to the owner of Twilight Creations on 9/10.  If she picks it up, I want to start building some interest in it for a likely upcoming kickstarter

Elementary

An unpublished game that I want to start building some interest.  Will be a pseudo-educational game, that I plan to pitch to Genius Games, maybe as early as 10/1 (depends how much time Zombie Frenzy takes!)

Guardians of Strongholme

An unpublished game set in a D&D 5E universe, where players defend the town of Strongholme from a Goblin Invasion.  Planning to pitch to Mr. B as soon as the Table Top Simulator assets are finished


Twice Alive Games

Check OGRe often for updates.  More UNPUB games are expected to be added.  You must be register for MACE 2021 to participate.

MACE 2021 Featured Publisher: Twice Alive Games LLC

MACE 2021 will feature official demos of Midnight Zombie Sabotage card game, by Twice Alive Games LLC, on Saturday all day.  They will be in the Gallery for drop-in demos.  They will also be 2 new games – TROSS and Kado, as well as several Unpublished Games (see our UnPub post)

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

The zombie apocalypse is upon us! The infection is spreading, and you must stop it… unless, that is, your cynicism, darkness, denial, or overwhelming hunger for fresh brains has overshadowed your will to save humanity.

Who can you trust in this game of deception and shifting allegiances? Even those who are silent may be lying to your face. You must summon all your intelligence and intuition to identify friend from foe and turn your enemies against each other to survive. You must fight for survival as you are plunged into the war between Zombies, Survivors, and Maniacs, taking on the roles of up to 14 unique characters with special abilities and innumerable combinations. Only your cunning and quick thinking can lead you to victory.

You’ve only got to make it through the night—do you have the brains to get the job done?
