Reminder: Queen City Conquest is this weekend (in Buffalo, NY) Can't Post

As far as I know, the game of The One Ring that I am Loremastering is the only Middle-earth-based event at the convention, but I might have missed something. This is something that I decided to try doing on my own, I am not affiliated in any way with Cubicle 7, Sophisticated Games or Middle-earth Enterprises.

The window has closed for pre-ordered tickets. Tickets will now be only available at the door. The convention is being held in the Buffalo-Niagara Convention Center in downtown Buffalo, NY. I hope that some of our other TORn members attend.

Have a wonderful gaming run O-S! [In reply to] Can't Post

Hope you have a blast - I wish I could make it up but family plans intervened for this weekend. Be thinking of you though and can't wait to read about how it went!

Is there a Tolkien topic that you have wanted to look into more deeply, and write about your thoughts on it? If so, we'd like to hear from you for the next TORn Amateur Symposium- coming in November. Happy writing!

Thanks. [In reply to] Can't Post

We're heading off to the con in a few minutes. I probably won't have time to post again until its over.

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", originally created for GenCon 2011. We all had a blast! The other players were great as well and really got into the spirit of things.
