Unicon needs your help!

Unicon is a two day roleplaying convention held in Melbourne, this year being held the weekend of the 4th and 5th of October.

This year they are having a problem in that there doesn't seem to have been enough games submitted. At the moment they especially want tabletop roleplaying games, so if you've always been wanting to run something, now is your chance.

Unicon is a perfect convention for people wanting to try their hand at writing and running games at conventions, since it's a smaller con than the other major Melbourne cons. So, give it a go!

To submit a game, log into AON, sign up for the convention and put the details in.

Go on, you know you want to!

And done;

"Execute Order 66..."

The last thing you heard before the universe spiraled into a new Dark Age.

The Republic is but a memory, the light of the Jedi has been extinguished, and the boot of the Galactic Empire grinds entire worlds under its heel.

You are on the run, hiding from the betrayer, Skywalker, who now styles himself Lord Vader. If you are caught, or even seen, whatever world you are on will suffer.

But you still live, waiting, ready to fight for one last chance to make a difference before the Empire finds you at last; on a backwater planet, in a cantina in the middle of nowhere, that chance is about to arrive.

The Force will be with you, Jedi. But in the end, will that be enough?

A Star Wars roleplaying game for 5 Jedi - broken, wounded, on the run... but still Knights of the Old Republic. Set five years after the events in Star Wars Episode III - Revenge of the Sith.


Seriousness: 4-5 (It is Star Wars though, the Cliche will be with you...always)
Characterisation: 5 (This is their last story, make it count)
Story/Plot: 5
Advisory Rating: MA 15+ (lightsabers are very nasty when they need to be)

Woot!

I'd say I look forward to playing it, except for the fact I'll probably be busy running my games for most of the convention. We'll see...

Still, woot! :)

Now you just need to persuade Maff and Steffi, et al, to come down with you.

Steffi and Ruth are coming down with me on the 28th for the week before Unicon and we are flying back on the Monday after.

Which means that you can gather yourself and four other Unicon GM's for a playtest during the week. :)

Reading the subject of this entry, I misread "Unicon" as "Unicorn"... and my brain, in it's current state of fevered glory, went "OHMIGOD, THE POOR UNICORNS! How much do I have to donate to save them?!"

... Uh, yeah...

Pretty much.

*hugs*

Oh, and I got your present from Fergie. He had to make sure my boyfriend wasn't around first. :P

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
