This is not an announcement per se, but a poll to gauge interest.
I’m mulling hosting a Burning Con in the February of 2023.
Rather than in NYC, this time we’d find an off-season lodge in the NY/NJ countryside and book it out. The event would run from Friday to Sunday evening.
For those who missed out, Burning Cons were weekend-long events where we played BWHQ games (and at some iterations, games designed by friends of BWHQ).
Past Burning Cons have been structured like so: party on Friday night, three game sessions on Saturday and two on Sunday (plus an afterparty on Sunday, for folks who were still in town). We also required that everyone GMed (and we added a beginner’s track at the final installment).
I would structure this iteration similarly, though I would make myself and Thor available for talks and Q&As—probably over breakfast. And I would remove the GM requirement and the old priority system, and just let this one be more relaxed and self-organized.
Playable games list:
- Burning Wheel (any edition!)
- Burning Empires
- Mouse Guard
- The Gift (playtest mode)
- and Miseries & Misfortunes
Am I forgetting anything? That seems like enough to fill a weekend, right?
We will charge a reasonable admission fee to help cover expenses (we usually spent any excess on food and drink for y’all). And you will be responsible for covering your transportation and lodging.
Help us gauge interest for this!
Even a “Not for me” is useful information.
- I’m in.
- Maybe, depending on life-stuff.
- Maybe, but first I have questions.
- Not for me.
