By the Basics: Introductory 4x5 Role-Playing Games at DunDraCon
Brand new to role-playing games, (RPGs) at conventions? Want to try out an RPG title you haven't played before? Or do you just want to get into a low-powered relatively short RPG with a veteran GM and a smaller roster of players? Sign up for (or even drop into) any of our By the Basics 4-hour 5-player games. They are intended to be accessible to beginners, but they are original handcrafted adventures, run by the GM who wrote or adapted it.
This is not organized play (though we have organized play scenarios at DunDraCon too); there are no ratings, standardized scripts, nor dealing with character registration. Every By the Basics game is scheduled into a private room; it's simply a shorter, more intimate variety of independently-crafted RPG, much like the thousands of RPGs that DunDraCon has scheduled over the years.
This year, we hope to have By the Basics games with three major systems: Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition, the new Starfinder, and FATE Accelerated. These games have been popular the last couple of years, and are great for new players and long-time role-players alike.
Walk Up and Teen Games
Games labeled "Walk Up" are not signed up through Games Registration. Simply show up at the game to see if room is available to play.
Teens who wish to play in the games scheduled in the Teen Priority Room can come to room 334 any time before the registration deadline to get priority registration for those games.
There are games we know (or guess) are going to be stand-outs in some way. Spotlight games are spread out across all the subsets of games we offer, if only to help bring those games to the attention of the wider audience that might not concentrate on LARPs or Miniatures, etc.
These games have struck our staff as particularly worthy of notice. Sometimes it's because the GM or troupe has a long-term record of excellence and a unique style. Sometimes it's because it's a visual spectacle. Or it might be a really big games, or series of linked games, or something that ought to appeal to a particular audience, like kids. Or maybe it's a new product debut we think might be of significant interest.
Downloadable Games Registration Form
You can now put all your Game choices on one sheet, rather than filling out seven or eight Game Reg. slips at the convention.

Just Print out the form at the link below, Fill it out (remember - neatness counts!), turn in the page during any Game Reg. session, and enjoy the rest of the Con without worrying about missing a registration session.
