My VirtuaCon Events: Rabbits, Rapscallions, and Rescues

I'm running three sessions for RPG Geek's VirtuaCon (Oct. 23rd-25th). You can see the full list of events here. If you see something you like, you can hop to the VirtuaCon G+ Community and sign up under an event. There's a ton of awesome gaming going in and there's no cost. If you've wanted to try out online gaming, this offers a great opportunity. 

I'll be running three sessions, all set in a collaboratively-built fantasy city, Askelion. You can see the full write-up for that here. We built that over the two sessions before the con. A couple of others are also running games set there. My three sessions are:

In the Cracks and Crevices
Theme: Rabbits
Friday Oct. 23rd Noon Eastern Time
The Warren
Rules will be taught. Short character creation. 

It may be a city of wonders for humans above, but it is a dangerous, precarious existence for animals trying to survive in the nooks and crannies. To quote from the description, "The Warren is a game about intelligent rabbits trying to make the best of a world filled with hazards, predators and, worst of all, other rabbits. While the rabbits in your games will solve some of their problems and learn some new tricks along the way, they are still bound by their anatomy and spot at the bottom of the food chain."

"The Warren is primarily a game about survival and community. There are many creatures, humans included, that are bigger, stronger, meaner, or more numerous than rabbits. The seasons and the elements do not care that rabbits are only little things. Rabbits cannot hope to meet these threats head on. Only through speed, wits, and keeping a cool head can rabbits hope to avoid the dangers of the world outside their warren." 

Zillia Zonkala's Confectionery Workshop
Theme: Fantasy Survival Horror
Friday Oct. 23rd 8PM Eastern Time
Dungeon Crawl Classics Funnel!
Rules will be taught. Many disposable pre-gen characters. 

Many have sought to discover the secret's of Sweet Bottom, an underground complex producing sweets for the city. You and a gaggle of fellow youths discovered a hidden way into one of these workshops. But now the doors have slammed behind you, the lights have dimmed, and the singing has begun. Can you find a way out? Will you survive? Will the candy stuffed in your pockets survive the experience? Loosely based on DCC #67: Sailors on the Starless Sea.

Each player begins with several 0-level characters. They end with fewer. See here for a little more on funnels.

Descent into the Depths of the City
Theme: Dungeoneering Rescue Party
Sunday Oct. 25th 10AM Eastern Time
13th Age Intro
Rules will be taught. Pre-gen characters provided.

The Delver's League is known as the most EXTREME of dungeon explorers. They parkour across pit traps, grind past guards, and gleam the gelatinous cube. Legends and tales- told by themselves- have spread near and far. 

And now you've been hired to go and rescue the most recent lost expedition of these idiots... er... fellow adventurers. 

It's a living.
