TICKETS/BADGE SALES: Players, the ticket/badge sales will go LIVE August 1, 2019. We are using Tabletop Events as our online ticket/badge sales site. BE AWARE this site only uses USD and does charge purchasers fees on top of the ticket price. We’ve worked hard to compensate by reducing our expenses from last year to give you a more affordable ticket price. This site also allows for us to schedule games in a way that easy for you to reserve your seat at the game table you want to play at.

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
