Queen City Conquest 2013 - Aug. 30 to Sept. 1 Can't Post

I signed up today to gamemaster (GM) a session of The One Ring - Adventures over the Edge of the WIld (TOR), the Middle-earth role-playing game published by Cubicle 7. The game will be part of the programming at Queen CIty Conquest, a gaming convention taking place August 30 - September 1, 2013 at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center; Convention Center Plaza; Buffalo, NY 14202. At this time I am still waiting for confirmation for the day and time of my session (I've asked for Saturday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.). August 31 is also my birthday. I will update when I have more concrete information.

Queen City Conquest is an annual convention in its second year. The con hosts all types of gaming, including role-playing games, war games, board games, collectible card games, and more. This will be the first year that I attend.

Sunday, Sept. 1, 1:00 PM [In reply to] Can't Post

My event has been approved and added to the Event List. Saturday afternoon already had a ton of events scheduled, so I changed the day of my game to Sunday, September 1. I plan on using the TOR adventure "Words of the Wise" that first appeared at GenCon 2011.

Thanks! [In reply to] Can't Post

Sorry for the late reply. The con starts tomorrow, so my posting over the weekend will be extremely limited (if any). I am very glad at this point that the game mechanics for TOR are fairly simple.

Thanks to the Players! [In reply to] Can't Post

My session took place this afternoon from 1 to 5 p.m.; I know the game could have gone smoother as I have little experience as a GM/Loremaster. A heartfelt shoutout goes to barefoottourguide from the Cubicle 7 message boards, who was one of my players. His input was invaluable and helped make my game a memorable experience (thanks, Garrett!). He also posted that my wife's portrayal of Tauriel as an Adventurer is the benchmark by which he will judge Evangeline Lilly's performance! I take that as high praise.

I also have to beam thanks to Dominic McDowall-Thomas and Francesco Nepitello for having created such a great introductory adventure in "Words of the Wise" which was originally run at GenCon 2011. We all had a blast! The other players were great as well and really got into the spirit of things.
