If you have ever wished you could go back in time and play in one of those early classic DUNGEONS & DRAGONS® tournaments now is your chance!
For those who have never played a tournament, they are open to anyone who knows how to play DUNGEONS & DRAGONS® (edition really doesn't matter). You have fun playing like any other RPG with the added excitement of seeing which adventuring group accomplishes the most and is the best team in play. You could even win a free badge to next year's Gary Con!
This will be the fourth year for the Gary Con, LEGENDS OF ROLEPLAYINGTM TOURNAMENT, an annual single-round tournament inspired by legendary tournaments of the past. Last year there were over 135 players signed up to play!
Each year features an all-new adventure that revisits or continues the adventure of an original classic tournament. The same ones that became the legendary TSR adventure modules we know and love. Each new tournament will be designed and even GMed by the TSR legends themselves!
Game masters for the tournament will feature a number of Gary Con veterans. While game master assignment is random, you could end up in a game with one of your favorite TSR designers, like Harold Johnson, Steve Winter, or Allen Hammack!
Teams will be formed online, complete with pre-generated character sheets, so that when your time begins you and your team will be ready to adventure! Teams will also be formed at a pre-tournament briefing an hour before the slot begins for on site sign-ups. You could team-up with a couple of friends or join some other Gary Con attendees and make new friends! Requests to be with other players on the same team will be handled via email after registration.
The players of the top scoring team will receive free Silver Badges (or an equivalent credit towards higher badges) to next year's Gary Con!
