Dear All,

ShadowCon XI, will be held on Saturday 26th August and Sunday 27th August 2017 (the Bank Holiday weekend), at the Northfields Community Centre, Northfields, West London, W13 9SS, UK.

Each day will run from 9.00am to 8.00pm, with a morning and afternoon slot and an hour break for lunch. There will be a tuck shop on site selling 'convention standard' fare such as crisps, chocolate and soft drinks

Ticket prices are £4 per game for an RPG slot and £6 (for the whole day) if you're playing Board Games.

Bookings are now open for ShadowCon XI.

To book (RPGs), you need to register on Warhorn (which is simple and quick) and then select your games.

https://www.warhorn.net/events/shadowcon-uk-2017

The RPGs we are offering are:
    Pathfinder Society (PFS)
    Call of Cthulhu
    D&D 5e
    Cypher

We will also have various boardgames (we will have a games library, but you can always bring your own), our Giant Settlers of Catan and X Wing available to play throughout the weekend.

See you there.

Gerald

Is there a WHFRP convention happening "nested within" Shadowcon? If so, what are the details for this and is there any overlap?

I'll be turning up as usual with a car full of board games including a few new ones such as Caverna.

If anyone wants me to bring something specific let me know and I'll confirm whether or not I have it.

Hello Simon, yes there is, it's called TobyCon. Unfortunately it's full and currently has no places available. If something becomes available would you like to know?

No thanks. I'm afraid I'm already booked that weekend. I was just mentioning it because I thought it was a great extra feature of ShadowCon that other people might be interested in.

Never heard of Caverna, but it looks interesting. Out of interest, is Caverna: Cave Farmers, the same game or an expansion?

Just to let you know we still have space in the following Non-Pathfinder Games. Sign-Ups will be available on the day, but we cannot guarantee spaces, so pre-booking (Warhorn) is recommended.

https://www.warhorn.net/events/shadowcon-uk-2017

Saturday AM (10am - 2pm)

London Calling
SSR Agents Needed - pre-gens supplied
System: Cypher System
GM: Max Bantleman
1947, January, London
The UK branch of the Strategic Scientific Reserve (SSR) has not been stood-down after the war: far from it – they are busier than ever trying to track down a Hydra cell that has just reactivated in response to a cache of weaponry and legacy-tech being found on England’s south coast.
Rumours abound within the SSR of a connection to some ‘mutation devices’ unwittingly dropped by the Nazis to further Hydra’s aims during the war.
The SSR needs all the help it can get…London is calling…

Saturday PM (3pm - 7pm)


Well Here We Are
Serenity crew required - pre-gens supplied
System: Cypher System
GM: Max Bantleman
What now? So much has happened, how do we come back from that?
Things won’t be the same but some things will never change: you still need to get work to keep flying. And the Alliance is still after River.
So, you get onto the next job, you get on with staying one ship ahead of the Alliance. That means it’s onto Valentine, a planet in the White Sun (Bai Hu) system, an old contact of Zoe’s, ‘Gater’, has a cargo he needs taking to Persephone: money is good, seems like a smooth and simple way to get back to work…
Player characters are – Mal, Zoe, Jayne, Kaylee and Simon.

Sunday AM (10am - 2pm)


Jungle of Death (12+)
Adventures Needed - pre-gens available
System: D&D 5th Edition
GM: John Heatherington
In the dark jungles of Chult, the ruins of an ancient civilisation lie, slowly decaying as the jungle reclaims them.

Vast wealth is there, waiting to be discovered by souls adventurous enough to brave the treacherous paths and terrible creatures that stand in their way.

Your party has found a map to a lost city filled with gold, magical treasures and eldritch secrets. Can you find it, or will the jungle claim more victims …

Note: Some experience of the system would be useful


Sunday PM (3pm - 7pm)


Skull Island (16+ Mature Themes)
August 1973, Vietnam - pre-gens supplied
System: Call of Cthulhu
GM: John Heatherington
As the American military pulls out of Vietnam, a small task force is diverted from its trip home to explore a newly-discovered island in the Pacific.

Wreathed in storms for much of the year, it is only accessible for a few short days. But untold riches lay beneath the surface of the island – riches that RandaCorp wish to have for themselves.

With help from the American military, they are going to survey the island and determine whether it is suitable for exploitation. You are members of this expedition, which seems rather

heavily-armed for a simple survey mission. What do the higher-ups know? Is the island really deserted? Why the sudden hurry – it will surely be there next year …
