When we asked many of the female attendees of FauxCon in previous
years, they said that one of the reasons they found difficult to get
involved in the con scene was the preponderance of enthusiastic male
In an effort to overcome some of these difficulties, FauxCon has
declared that the Friday evening session is FemmeCon - all the gms
will be female, and only female attendees will be permitted to enter
The intent is not to exclude male gamers, but to provide a relaxed
and calm beginners environment, and to get female gamers in the door,
and used to a con environment without testosterone soaked competitive
guys demanding all the attention and not letting their girlfriends get
a word in edgewise.
For the male fauxcon attendees (or female attendees who are not
interested in FemmeCon), we have arranged a pair of offsite
activites - they can either come along to a dinner at the Main St Hotel,
or the local cinema is offering a cheap-ticket deal to any badged
Attendees, please bring a plate.
FauxCon is always looking to expand its base of loyal
supporters - we recognise that constantly moving the venue
makes it hard to come to every convention, so we believe its
important to keep new blood showing up to each new location.
To help attendees help us, we have marked each entry form with a
unique identifier that is added when you download the pdf. When you
print your entry form, run off as many copies as you can, and send
them to other roleplayers that you think should come to the Con.
Each of these people should send one dollar and their entry form
back to you. Of course, they can also copy the form and send it to
their friends - for each dollar they get sent, they should keep
$.50c towards their own entry and send $.50c to you.
This way, people who help FauxCon by contacting other gamers and
encourage them to come along to the con can sign up effectively
cheaper. Of course, it becames a game in and of itself when you
take into account that your entry has to be in early enough to
get into the sessions that you want to play, but its cheaper if
you wait! Everyone wins!
