Registration for VENGER CON III: Revenge of the OSR is officially open.
It's going to be a wild, amazing, game-filled, glorious time for those able to attend this July convention on the east side of Madison Wisconsin (actually, right on the edge of Sun Prairie and Madison).
The last two VENGER CONs were fantastic, and this one is at an even nicer, newer hotel. We're lucky to find an amazing venue at such a reasonable rate. However, when I say reasonable... well, it's still a bit pricey. Basically, my overhead just doubled. Instead of needing 20 attendees to break-even, I'll need 40.
But I'm also confident that we'll sell-out at 100 (that's the maximum attendance). Promotional marketing is key. If you could throw some links around social media or to based and zoth-pilled gaming friends you know, that would be fantastic! I can send you either the tall or wide banner for your blog, if you'd like to host it. Just email me: Venger.Satanis@yahoo.com
Meanwhile, I'll be sending around flyers locally in order to bring gamers in the tri-state area closer together, uniting around principles of awesomeness.
It seemed like half of all attendees are Game Masters, and expert-level at that, so there won't be any shortage of games. I intend to run Cha'alt, Alpha Blue, and this Lovecraftian mystery RPG that I'll start working on in 2024. Plus, I should have book 4 of the Cha'alt trilogy in-tentacle by VENGER CON III.
If you have any questions, comments, or feedback, let me know.
Until then, I'll be around - here on Venger's old-school gaming blog, Twitter [X], Facebook (as Darrick Dishaw), YouTube, and MeWe.
There's news in my non-gaming life, too. My Father just passed away a couple days ago. He was 87, and still fairly sharp of mind and in mostly decent health up until the end. It's no exaggeration to say that I owe him everything. Best Dad ever! He was always extremely supportive of my book writing dreams, and loved having his signed hardcover Cha'alt books on the coffee table for everyone to see.
Thanks for all the well-wishing and continued support from everyone around me, and our entire family.
Love you guys,
p.s. I've been selling Cha'alt hardcovers like hotcakes recently. That means the end is actually in sight, and it won't be long before they're gone (probably by VENGER CON IV: The Search For More Money, so don't freak out if you're currently struggling in these trying economic times).
