Return of the Grognards at Dexcon 14

The time is upon us once more, and the Return of the Grognards is in force for this year's Dexcon convention in Morristown, NJ July 6-10.

So far, we've got the following events going under the RotG banner:
  • AD&D 1st edition - White Plume Mountain
  • AD&D 1st edition - Ghost Tower of Inverness
  • AD&D 1st edition - Ravenloft
  • D&D Basic (Red Box edition)
I would love to see more Old School gaming goodness represented at the convention! Let's get some other games going-- Marvel Super Heroes, Star Frontiers, Metamorphosis Alpha, Gamma World, Champions, Chivalry & Sorcery, Traveller, Empire of the Petal Throne, Labyrinth Lord, Swords & Wizardry, LotFP, Dragons at Dawn... The sky's the limit!

If you're able and willing to commit to running a game at the convention, please send me an email so I can include you in the promotional materials I'm putting together. You can email me at joseph at josephbloch dot com. I'm also putting together another panel on the OSR, and anyone running a game will be included in that as well.

Last year we got a LOT of attention with our original Invasion of the Grognards. I'm hoping that by doing it again this year, we can help expand things, and let people know they can expect to see it at every Dexcon, so they can look forward to it and plan around it.

Come on, folks! If you're in or around the New Jersey area, now's the time to make an Old School splash!

Hi Joseph!

Does running a game get a discount to admission? I am definitely considering attending either way, but a discount would be even more of an incentive to student me.

@ Allandros: Yes. I'm not sure of what, exactly, the formula is, but I know I always get a free pass when I run a couple of games.
