New Adventure: Gonzo Con

This project happened completely by accident. What started as a goofy idea to include in the next issue of Tales from the Game Tavern, took on a life of its own. Gonzo Con is a humorous RPG adventure which pokes fun at geek conventions, geek culture, and the 1970-80s. The thirty page module is presented in a non-linear fashion so the players can make their own exploration choices. Players assume the role of modern day people transported to a strange convention. They are then tasked with exploring the entire convention hall before their captor will release them.

Gonzo Con is perfect for a one shot adventure when your group needs a diversion. Additionally it would be great for a game convention slot this summer. The adventure is system neutral and only includes game mechanics as an example when applicable. This way each Game Master can tailor Gonzo Con to their favorite system when running it.

Gonzo Con has plenty of tropes, clich├ęs, weirdness, social awkwardness, and lunacy. DO NOT purchase Gonzo Con if you are looking for a serious adventure. On the other hand if you want to laugh, Meta-game, and not take things very seriously, this adventure is for you!

The layout is a tad refined but maintains its raw edge to give the publication a zine vibe. Finally this adventure includes cartography from the amazing Dyson Logos, and art from Bruno Junges, Denis McCarthy, and Jack Badashski. Please support these artists as their illustrations help to make DIY publications like Gonzo Con visually compelling.

Available NOW in print or PDF at the Ultanya Publishing store.

For those of you attending Legacies Game Day this weekend (April 23rd, 2016) Gonzo Con will be available at the low price of $5!
