The oldest and
arguably the largest gaming convention in the world. While there are
larger conventions, this one is the grand-daddy of them all, focusing the
majority of the convention on games of all types, rather than being focused as a
media convention. It's has a few spin-offs and imitators over the years,
but is still considered the king of its kind. Due to our limited budget
(we give this stuff away free you know) this is the only convention we
personally attend each year to personally run games of Immortal Invisible War.
The convention starts on a Thursday morning (one or two games start as early at
12:00 AM, but most start around 8:00 AM) and ends Sunday around 4:00 PM.
For more information about Gen Con, the Indiana Convention Center and the
surrounding area (including hotel information, what to do between games, etc.),
as well as to register to come to the convention, please visit
A 4-day badge
can be obtained by registering at the website ahead of time and costs around
$68.00 USD. Event tickets are $2.00 USD per 2 hours that the event runs (a
4-hour event will therefore cost $4.00 USD). Hotels run an average of
$175.00 USD per night (but you can easily put more than one person in
a hotel room to split the cost). If you are driving or flying or even
taking the train those costs vary. Indianapolis is a convention town, so
there are lots of restaurants and a few other attractions available. Food
in the convention center is a bit pricey, just like at any club, sports stadium,
etc. But food around town goes for all the price ranges you'd expect;
there is a mall about two - three blocks from the convention center with a very
large food court area.
We run our
Immortal events alongside Infinite Imaginations, Inc. (a Gen Con Premier Event
Group). They are one of the
longest-running gaming organizations that host games at Gen Con and we are proud
to be a part of their team for the convention each year. You can find out
a little bit more about Infinite Imaginations by
visiting their website.
Note that there is unfortunately no Live Action session scheduled for this year.
Hopefully we'll have one scheduled for next year.
IMMORTAL HIMSATI - URBAN LEGENDS
Join supernatural heroes able to shape shift into mythological forms as they use
their magic to protect the city from the mysterious forces of the Droves. Street
level vigilante super heroics combine with the supernatural and a hint of
mythology for added spice. Rules are light, role playing is stressed.
This game will be played
using standard 3rd Edition rules (standard RPG format), with minimal use of
optional and advanced rules from the Narrator's Guide, for time allotted per
convention format. This event runs two times during the convention.
SideNote: KAIJU HERO - WAR OF THE MONSTERS
Since Infinite Imaginations also runs a great deal of Hero System-based
games, we are going to run a game using the Hero system from Hero Games.
A group of high school students use their alien artifacts to transform into
gargantuan creatures, bio-robots and more. Join them as they try to save the
world from a war of the monsters. B-Movie monster flicks mashed up with some
modern cartoon-style heroics. Rules are light, role playing is stressed.
This game will be played
using standard 5th Edition rules (standard RPG format), with emphasis on the
Champion Super-Hero genre book. There will be minimal use of
optional and advanced rules for time allotted per
convention format. This event runs two times during the convention. (See
