South Texas Mini-Con August 20: Save the Date

Plans are firming up for the South Texas Mini-Con, a one-day classic rpg and miniatures all-day event organized by the rapscallion players and scurrilous gamemaster of the Hill Cantons. If you are interested in attending—or running a game—please drop me a line at kutalik at gmail dot com.

Here's the updated information:

When: Note the change (this is now firm), Saturday, August 20, 2011. Starting likely at 10:00 am and finishing when they kick us out.

The Mini-Con site (more or less)
Where: This is also now firm. The New Braunfels Convention Center break-out room. See here for more info on the site.

Who: 20-30 participants. If we are looking like we will hit over 30, we may rent a second room and open up more sessions.

What: One-day gaming event with morning and afternoon sessions. We will likely run 3-4 games in each session depending on interest levels. To date, we have three very likely sessions: a starship mini game (Desert Scribe), an AD&D first edition session (Brad/Skullcrusher), and an Empire of the Petal Throne adventure (yours truly).

Several maybe sessions include a possible Chainmail minis battle (playing out action in the on-going Domain Game) or Humanspace Empires game (me again). We also have a few special surprise sessions in store for participants.

Registration is free, but any and all contributions will be greatly appreciated.  


  1. Me and Kenneth are coming down to represent for the old Austin Hill Cantons crew. Thanks oh master of dungeons for getting this rolling.

  2. I'm looking forward to this. Now I just need to come up with a Starfleet Wars scenario. And playtest it first. And before all that, play the game for the first time to learn the rules.

  3. Hmmm...I want to run something, but I also want to play in the Starfleet Wars game. Arrg!

  4. how do I register for the mini-con . . .

  5. Registration is pretty simple, say you are coming (and do so) and you are in. First come, first serve.
