Welcome to FauxCon V!
FauxCon's 5th year promises to be as much fun as our previous
four conventions. This year we have a huge variety in both tabletops
and freeforms, and a couple of very special events ready to go!
In keeping with our yearly migration, this year the Convention is
being held at Steiglitz, a sleepy town in the Brisbane Ranges west
of Melbourne and south of Bacchus Marsh. As well as being an easy
travel for the FauxConners in the Western Plains, we're hoping to
pull a few Melbourne folks out, and to make it not hard to get
to for those folks from Gippsland too!
Trains run each day to Geelong, or to Bacchus Marsh, and from
there, a bus winds its way to Anakie, or to Meredith. From there,
the FauxCon orgs will be running a shuttle bus every 30 minutes.
While you're waiting, why not check out the
Anakie Faery Park, or the site of the Meredith Music Festivel!
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.
Who would have thought that
were that populous at Hume Weir?
However, while FauxCon IV rolled on, a number of ConOrgs used their
spare time to lay special bilby-traps in the bushland around the
con site, and having been taking care of the surviving little
marsupials since. We now have our own FauxCon breeding program for
bilbies, and Roger II, III and IV, not to mention Rogerinas I and II.
Hopefully we will never again be in the position where the Con's
mascot has been killed; at least without a replacement!
