Aside from gaming, we have an exhibitors hall filled with a wide variety of exhibitors selling everything from swords to dice, shirts to games, and a number of other unique and interesting items. And what convention is complete without an auction? Of course we have one!

Ambercon 2019

Though Amber Diceless Role-Playing has been old enough to drink for over ten years now (it has been thirty-four years since Erick Wujcik first showed ADRP), it is still going strong.

Ambercon is a broad-spectrum diceless gaming and indie gaming convention! We’ve got superheroes, musketeers, characters from various fictional settings we won’t name here due to fear of lawsuits, SOE operatives, cowboys, and, of course, Amber-based games… you name it, we’ll game it!

Dice Tales: Nightfall

Presenting the eleventh live session of our continuing fundraiser campaign, Straight Outta the Forgotten Realms. Come watch local performers Brad Systma, Cari Scholtens, Chuck Fortenbacher, Liz Brand, and Ross Johnson gather around the table of Gamemaster Brooke Heintz in this live tabletop RP event. This performative evening of fast-paced RP will bring you hours of laughter, thrills, might & magic, and of course, dramatic dice-slinging!

The plot thickens in Sembia, as the Children of Destiny try to escape from the clutches of the cult of Shar, goddess of loss, darkness, and secrets: all of which lie ahead for our heroes, who face their greatest challenge yet.

Dice Tales is brought to you by Character Case and Gaming Paper, with music and sound F/X by Syrinscape. All proceeds benefit Dog Story Theater. Entry is a suggested donation of $10.
