FauxCon 3 Ned Stand and Deliver

What is FauxCon?

FauxCon is primarily a co-production of the Impotent Images Roleplaying Club (Geelong), BURP (Ballarat Uni Role Players), and the Science Fiction & Games Association of Moe. A number of other individuals, both Metropolitan and Regional, participate to varying degrees. FauxCon has been running since 1999, and aims to compliment Victoria's larger gaming cons by providing cheaper, less carcinogenic games in a smaller, friendly environment. FauxCon hopes to encourage new and regional Game Masters and players to experience gaming in a convention environment for our special low, low price.

BilbyRoger the Bilby

Roger the Bilby is FauxCon's special mascot. He made a guest appearance at the first FauxCon, at which he had attendees enchanted with his antics. He was made the subject of several of FauxCon II's scenarios, and he, with the help of last year's special guest Peter Garrett, encouraged over fifty of the Con-goers to join Green Peace.

Sadly, Roger passed away during December 1999, having lost a disagreement with a semi-trailer on the Calder Highway outside of Wood End. What little remained intact was donated to the Biology Department of Latrobe University Bendigo for use in scientific purposes. But his fond memory goes on in the form of FauxCon III t-shirts, of which $2 from each sale is to be donated to the Healesville Sanctuary.

Administration

FauxCon is run by Stochastic Inc., a non-profit incorporated organisation. All time, effort, blood, sweat, and other gross bodily fluids are voluntarily donated.

All the FauxCon organisers are volunteers - people who 9 days before the Convention put up their hands and committed themselves to doing whatever it takes to try and get the negatives back. Because of the con's regional focus, we have endeavourd to retain the services of representatives from different regions around Victoria. Our current list of organisers are:
