2020 is coming and here’s SOME of the events we have planned right now!
In 2020 We want to run smaller events to keep our community connection alive and thriving all year round, which will culminate in our BIG FALL Convention that will be in November this year. So here’s what we have planned so far and if you have ideas please email us.
*+ Feb 23, 2020 RPGA-Con Mini-Con- Fundraiser @ Dickens *
We just OPENED the GAME MASTER SUBMISSIONS until December 31, 2019. Player Badges go on sale January 15, 2020.
It’s smaller and easier to run with 8 Games max. All the details are on our Tabletop Event site: RPG Alliance Mini-Con:Feb 23,2020
We are also trying out the TRAFFIC LIGHT PARTY rules using glow sticks, another good idea from your surveys! Everyone wants to make new friends, some folks might be looking for more. We’re going to use the TRAFFIC LIGHT PARTY SYSTEM so that everyone knows what your social boundaries are. The color GREEN means that one is SINGLE and looking for a relationship. RED means NOT LOOKING for a relationship. Yellow may mean “unsure” or “maybe,” or could mean that one is in a relationship but still open to advances. The purpose of a traffic light party is to decrease the apprehension associated with approaching potential mates at parties. It also serves the purpose of providing an easy indicator of one’s unavailability, to fend off unwelcome advances. Because we are an INCLUSIVE community we are adding 3 Extra colours: BLUE if seeking a MALE identified person, PINK if seeking a FEMALE identified person, PURPLE if seeking a NON-GENDER CONFORMING person. Now we’re running out of colours, but this is a good place to start.
We’re going to run events every quarter and we’ll send out emails when our other plans are confirmed.
Let’s make 2020 a Critical Success Friends!

X-Card In Use:
An X-card is a tool that helps maintain a safe environment at the gaming table. Roleplaying games can be very improvisational and adventures can vary widely in content. It can be impossible to predict when uncomfortable content might come up.
An X-card is a tool to keep the content at the table safe for everyone. It is a card in the middle of the table with an X on it. Should someone feel uncomfortable at anytime, they can tap the X-card. The event host and other players will change the content, dial it back, or skip the scene.
RPGA-con endorses and uses the X-Card as part of our plan to create a safe and inclusive environment for gamers.
The X-Card was designed by John Stavropoulos and more information about it can be found at http://tinyurl.com/x-card-rpg
July 5 the Poster is IN!!!
