Riddled with veins of precious ore and gem, the Earthspur Mountains to the west have long been a valuable resource for anyone able to mine them. One such mine has gone silent and the only thing more concerning than its long overdue shipment is the fate of the members of the Soldiery sent to discover what has happened to the mine’s workers. Though the mine lay in a region of the Mountains once claimed by a clan of reclusive dwarves, the Ludwakazar clan wouldn’t be so bold as to violate their long-standing peace with Mulmaster. Or would they?

A temple monk from the time he came of age, Fai Chen was expelled from his order for his indiscretions, a story he doesn’t relate to others. After falling in with a group of adventurers, he traveled far and across Faerûn in search of treasure and danger, attempting to put his ascetic days behind him. After a terrible encounter with a mummy, he never truly healed from the battle but took it as a sign to abandon his adventuring career, converting his meager collection of curiosities and magic items acquired during his dangerous stint into his Fantastical Faire—a traveling shop of wonders.

Pandemic Survival Tournament
Pandemic Survival is an “extreme” version of Pandemic where teams of two will face each other in an epic battle to save the world. Their goal: to be the first team to find all four cures, or to be the last team still alive at the end of the game.

In this tournament-style version of the game, all teams will face the same problems: their player cards will all be placed in the same order before the game; the infected cities are the same for everyone; the Epidemics strike at the same time for all teams; every team has the same role cards. The only difference is the decisions they will make! Their strategic choices will lead each team in different directions, and one strategy will pay off in the end and lead to victory.

To preregister for this tournament, please email Gaming@hal-con.com. Please include your name and your teamate's name. If you don't have a teammate, you can register solo and we will try our best to pair you up with another player.

A Semiotic Analysis of Lara Croft: Exploring Three Generations of the Tomb Raider Video Games
This panel is about Lara Croft and the changes she went through during the three generations of Tomb Raider. I just finished my undergrad and this project was my semester-long seminar paper. The title for the paper is “A Semiotic Analysis of Lara Croft: Exploring Three Generations of the Tomb Raider Video Games”. Obviously this is a very academic-based paper, but the presentation I would present would have everything in lay language, and I would include more fun information about the Tomb Raider Games and less dry academic theory.

The Abstract for the paper: This research conducts a semiotics analysis of Lara Croft in the Tomb Raider series using Roland Barthes’s Myth to better understand gender representations in video games. The data for this study uses the 11 games from the Tomb Raider series on the PC platform—Lara Croft’s original form. This study finds that the narrative of women in video games has changed over a 20-year period and shows that Lara Croft is socially constructed to look feminine, but act masculine.

Intro to Legend of the Five Rings
Join me for an introductory demo of The Legend of the Five Rings RPG! (4th edition)L5R is set in the eastern medieval fantasy world of Rokugan, boasting a very rich history and cultural background (think feudal Japan meets Game of Thrones). Play as a samurai from one of many unique clans, each with their own ideologies, traditions, and combat styles. Choose from a Bushi (warrior), Courtier (diplomat), Shugenja (mage), Duelist, or Monk. Combat plays a lesser part than the more traditional “dungeon-crawl”, with a focus instead on world immersion, social interaction, moral dilemmas, and political intrigue. Concepts such as Bushido (the Samurai Code of Honor) and spiritualism play an important role as well. When fighting does break out however, it is quite intense and lethal.Come check it out!

Fai Chen's Fantastical Faire
A temple monk from the time he came of age, Fai Chen was expelled from his order for his indiscretions, a story he doesn’t relate to others. After falling in with a group of adventurers, he traveled far and across Faerûn in search of treasure and danger, attempting to put his ascetic days behind him. After a terrible encounter with a mummy, he never truly healed from the battle but took it as a sign to abandon his adventuring career, converting his meager collection of curiosities and magic items acquired during his dangerous stint into his Fantastical Faire—a traveling shop of wonders.
