FauxCon has always tried to go to great lengths to make the convention
as special a memory as we possibly can. In previous years, we have
hosted combined dinner/freeforms, special guests, special live action
versions of normal games, figure painting and much much more.
This year, the fun and frivolity keeps pouring out to you...
A ladies-only night, see Entry for
- FauxCon Masquerade picnic
After the sucess of last year's dinner, we are happy to announce
that FauxCon will be having another masquerade picnic. Attendees
are asked to come to the actual event in costume (superheros or
supervillains are equally acceptable), as social
vilification will be an important part of the points given for
The picnic will be held 35 minutes drive away from the town
proper, and buses will be provided. The buses will leave from
the Con venue at 11am. Food will be provided, but attendees
must bring their own drinks and sunscreen.
- Roleplaying in film: Deconstructing the D&D movie
Following on from the sucessful seminar from last
FauxCon - Why the Hercules and Xena system is the best map
from big screen to gm screen... - Dave Andrewson will once
again return to behind the remote control.
For three hours, Dave will help everyone gain a proper grasp
of the intricacies of the D&D Movie - what dice rolls
the players made to accomplish some of the feats as the module
continues, the cleverness of the DM joining the group together
and the history of the only black elf in their entire culture are
just some of the topics that will be discussed in great depth.
At the end of the seminar, there will be 10 minutes question time
for the audience.
- Cthulhu d20 - Metahorror Debate
Dave's excellent series will not be the only puclic discussion
at FauxCon 7. With the release of Cthulhu d20 and the more accessible
version of H.P. Lovecraft's Mythos universe, there has been considerable
discussion about the purity of vision retained in the new release.
3 roleplayers will take each side of the debate and attempt to convince
you, the players, of the rightness of their stance.
Unlike the similar promised debate over d20 Elric at a previous
convention, we have been reassured that this debate will not consist
of the "nay" side of the argument simply rocking backwards and forwards
and moaning "no".
- Sunday Activities
Because of the problems with the booking for our venue on the Sunday
we have organised a number of activities for congoers on the Sunday
so that no one is bored or wanders off.
Activities such as hot air ballooning, cross country hiking,
spelunking, skeet shooting, snake taunting, yabbying and
threshing have already been organised, and we may have a number
of shorter fun things available at the Con. Please indicate your
interest on the entry form when sending it into the convention.
- Gaming Widows Workshop
Is your partner often left behind for the weekend while you go
off to have fun? Well, no more will FauxCon be assisting in doing this
small harm to your ongoing relationship; we will not be responsible
for the first small tack in the coffin lid; no further will we take
men and women from their families in the name of 'fun', and make
small children ask "where's daddy?" late on the Saturday night, leaving
mummy to wonder if he is truly playing with those alleged friends
of his, or if he is out at a strip club, paying their hard earned
money to have some skank rub her desensitised and chafed nipples
across his brow.
Instead, we're providing a weekend's worth of fun activities!
For a nominal visitors fee, your partner and any offspring can come
along to FauxCon and amuse themselves while you are guilt free to
play games. Day trips to the Grampians, or to the Little Desert
National Park are available for those who like the grandeur of nature,
or for those who prefer to see the industriousness of man, buses
will convey them to the Horsham Agricultural college or the Wool
Of course, the con site is also available for the friends and
family of gamers to hang about at - because some of the games
will be held in squash courts on site, there is an unparalleled
oppurtunity for such to watch games from above, from the mezzanine
