Welcome to DunDraCon!

The West Coast's Premier Game Convention

DunDraCon 45 Covid Policy

DunDraCon 45 will comply with all relevant pandemic restrictions in effect at the time of the convention - Federal, State, Local and Hotel.

At this time, we expect to require vaccinations to attend DunDraCon 45. There is a checkbox on the various submission forms to indicate that you expect to be fully vaccinated by February 18. We may require proof of vaccination before picking up your pre-reg badge, or at the gate when you purchase it.

As the con grows nearer and situations change, we reserve the right to modify this policy.

The Perrin Convention

DunDraCon Remembers Steve Perrin (1946-2021)

Memorials are a time to reflect on the wonderful people who touched our lives. Steve Perrin passed on August 12, 2021, and is remembered by his friends, fans, and colleagues.

Steve was a master of storytelling and an inspiration to game designers and authors everywhere. Spreading wisdom, kindness, and an infectious sense of fun wherever he applied his attention. For some, he was also a loyal and dear friend who mentored our careers and helped us to reach our potential. As one of the early founders of the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) he embraced historic lifestyle skills and community. As one of the founders of DunDraCon, he helped conceive and provide an annual event for tabletop gamers, role-playing, and live-action costumed play. Something that decades later continues to grow and flourish.

As a game designer he worked for many tabletop and video game companies doing system design, adventure design, and writing. He is well known for his RPG work at Chaosium, TSR, FASA, West End Games, and other publishers. Steve combined with Greg Stafford to create RuneQuest and he was also the author of Superworld. Steve’s Perrin Convention rules were used by many DunDraCon attendees as “homebrew” rules for our D&D adventures. Hardly a computer role-playing game exists today without using Mana (or Spell Points), which was invented by Steve.

We will dearly miss Steve. He was a caring and friendly person who enjoyed connecting with others. Perhaps he will be remembered most for how his life has impacted our lives and the very things that we love and hold in our hearts. His tradition will carry on in all the things that his imagination has influenced. We hope to see you all at DunDraCon 45 in February 2022 – affectionately the “Perrin Convention.”

Steve dearly loved his wife Luise, who last year became ill and has needed hospice care ever since. To help cover those costs Steve started a GoFundMe page – if you wish to honor Steve & Luise you can contribute at: Care for the Phoenix (gofundme.com)


Hotel reservations now available for DDC 45 - in 2022!

March 6, 2021: The Santa Clara Marriott has given us the room reservation code for 2022. We haven't begun to outgrow the place (and we'll double in size or more before we do so), so there'll almost certainly be a room for you when you want one. But best not to wait too long - if we manage to fill our reservation block without you, or you miss the cut-off date (see out Hotel page for more indormation), it's likely to cost a lot more than the con rate.
