Welcome to Living Forgotten Realms at AnCon 2010
Preregistration has now closed and
warhorn is now locked. However, we will be able to make any additions and
Once again, we are pleased to offer Dungeons and Dragons Living Forgotten
Realms at AnCon 2010. This event is for new players as well as the
experienced and this year is planning to be bigger and better then ever.
This year, we plan to offer the Battle Interactive (formally ADCP 2-1 The
Paladins' Plague). This adventure was first intrduced at DDXP and we are
proud to be offering it at AnCon. This adventure is primarly combat
intensive and allows tables to interact with each other. Further it is
offered for characters level 1-17! The more that play, the better this one
A QUICK NOTE ON WAIT LISTED PLAYERS: As always, it is our goal to have
EVERY player play. We do have judges on call and many of the judges have
said they will volunteer more time to make sure the players can play.
Further, some players even said they will pitch in if more judges are needed.
Although it appears we are full, we usually can handle more.
A QUICK NOTE ON ADVENTURES NOT RELEASED: You will see an alternate
adventure code listed. If the adventure does not get released by the RPGA,
the alternate will run. However, I understand you may want to play
something else. We have created a Yahoo group to allow the players to
discuss their wishes. If the majority are in agreement, we will use the
suggestion you give us and have the judge prepair the adventure you selected.
The yahoo group is
http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/AnCon2010LFR/ I AM ENCOURAGING EVERYONE
TO GET INVOLVED IN THIS. This is not my convention, it is our convention
and I want everybody to be happy.
Also this year, we hope to have the Dungeon Delve. This is a 1 hour
long event that is basically timed combat. Your are given a character and
you and the rest of the players must complete two combat encounters within the
one hour time limit. Every time you play, you are given tokens that are
good for various prizes. The best part, you don't need to preregister for
the event. You purchase your ticket and as soon as there are five people
and a table available, you start.
Now that the introduction is done, lets get to answering all the questions
you may have:
What is AnCon?
AnCon is a game convention held at the Clarion Inn in Hudson Ohio. This
location is right off the Ohio Turnpike and near I-77. This year will be
its third run. It's main web site is
game convention is family friendly and has much to offer.
What is Living Forgotten Realms?
As described by Wizards of the Coast, Living Forgotten Realms is a Massive
shared world campaign. Basically, it allows you to create a character and
play that character anywhere they are playing Living Forgotten Realms. For
more information regarding Living Forgotten Realms,
What is Pathfinder Society?
Pathfinder Society is the organized game system created by Paizo for the
Pathfinder Game (which some simply call D&D 3.75). For more information,
visit their web site.
How do I register for AnCon?
AnCon preregistration is now closed. However, you can register onsite
and still be able to play games.
How do I register to play in individual Living Forgotten Realms Events?
Preregistration to play Living Forgotten Realms and Pathfinder events is now
closed. However, you can register to play at the convention itself.
Just visit our headquarters.
What is the cost to play each event?
The cost to play any four hour long LFR event is $2.00. (The eight hour
Battle Interractive will be $4.00). This will be collected at the show
before you play your first LFR event.
I don't have an RPGA, DCI, or Pathfinder number, how do I get one?
I can issue you a number at the show. If you believe you already have a
number and no longer know what it is, you can email me(email@example.com)
and I will look it up.
What is the age limit to play Living Forgotten Realms or Pathfinder?
That is a tough question. Living Forgotten Realms stories are made to
be family friendly. With that said, sometimes the stories can be a bit on
the violent side. Think Lord of the Rings movies, they are family
friendly, but still PG-13. Therefore, I recommend an age of 13 and over to
play. However, I have seen 10 year olds play the game with no problem.
You are the parrent and know the limits of your children.
Kids under the age of 13 must have parrent permission to play regardless.
I have a group and we want to play some specific events. Can that be
YES, ABSOLUTELY. Please email me directly and I can get your group in.
I can do this even at the convention but understand, the preregistered
participants come first. My email address is
I will place the events you want on the schedule and assign a judge for them.
Obviously there are some limiatations but that can be discussed.
What is LFR Open Play and LFR Late Night?
LFR Open Play and Late Night allows a group of 4-6 players and a judge to
choose what adventure they wish to play. I have all the adventures
released by the RPGA at the convention so you choose what you wish to play.
Once everybody agrees, the judge gets the adventure and runs it for the table.
This way, if you want to play something not offered, you can still play.
I signed up, what next:
It is important that you arrive at your event before your start time.
It is recommended that you arrive 30 minutes before your start time.
You check in at HQ and they will tell you what table to go to. At 10
minutes before start time, anyone on the wait list and walk-ins may register for
the event to fill out the tables. A PREREGISTERD PLAYER WILL BE TREATED AS
A WALKIN IF THEY DO NOT ARIVE AT LEAST 10 MINUTES BEFORE THE START OF THE EVENT.
Want to be a Judge?
Players who want to be a judge can request this by email to
Give us as much detail about yourself. Include AT LEAST the following
information: Name, Age, How long you have been playing D & D, How long you
have been playing LFR, How long you have been playing 4th edition. Also
include your address, and telephone number. Don't worry if you have no
experience judging. For everything, there is a first time. Currently, we have
enought judges for AnCon 2010. However, with the number of people
attending, we may need some more judges once we get to the show. So, feel
free to report to RPGA HQ to volunteer to judge.
Once you have been accepted to judge, you will need to give us your
availability for the convention and your shirt size. Details will be
handled over the phone.
We also accept new judges on site.
Our organization also does Con on the Cob 2010. I will need judges for that.
We are also trying to work with other conventions as well. There will be
details as these come up.
I have more questions. Who can I contact?
You can me directly at
firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be happy to answer your questions.
