Welcome to the North Texas RPG Convention! The NTRPG Con focuses on old-school Dungeons & Dragons gaming (OD&D, 1E, 2E, or Basic/Expert) as well as any pre-1999 type of RPG produced by the classic gaming companies of the 70s and 80s (TSR, Chaosium, FGU, FASA, GDW, etc). We also support retro-clone or simulacrum type gaming that copies the old style of RPGs (Swords & Wizardry, Castles & Crusades, and others). ANY RPG games are welcome at the Con, be it D&D 4e, Pathfinder, or something we haven't even heard of, just be sure you can fill a table with 5-6 people before you ask to have it added to the schedule...
Our 8th annual convention dates are: Thursday June 2, 2016 @ 1800 until Sunday June 5, 2016 @ 1800
Early Bird registration will open sometime in October and runs until November 30, 2015. During the Early Bird Registration period, you can save $15.00 on the full Con registration fee, buy Con T-Shirts, and purchase discounted "squeaky cage" tickets in preset quantities. (you can also purchase Vendor Tables, Convention Rooms, Sponsorships, and Advertising at a discounted price as well)
Please look around, read up and register if you plan to attend. You must pay for one day or a weekend before you are able to register for a game. (though game registration doesn't open until midnight April 15th, 2016... midnight is the beginning of the day, not the end)
The Con will be held at the DFW Airport Marriott South: 4151 Centreport Boulevard, Fort Worth, Texas 76155. It's just south of the airport and really ought to carry an Arlington/Grand Prairie address, but Forth Worth has a long "finger" that spans over into the area. We have a special rate for con attendees ($108.00/night) that is in effect until May 15th, 2016 so don't delay in getting your reservations. We will have the link posted as soon as we get it.
We have confirmed guests (and waiting on responses from others) attending in 2016: ( Bob Bledsaw Jr, Jason Braun, Mike Breault, Chris Clark, David 'Zeb' Cook, Michael Curtis, Darlene, Jeff Dee, Matt Finch, Allen Hammack, Kevin Hendryx, Jon Hershberger, Jennell Jaquays, Timothy Kask, Doug Kovacs, David 'Diesel' LaForce, Steve Marsh, Frank Mentzer, Douglas Niles, Steve Perrin, Merle Rasmussen, Lawrence Schick, Mike Stewart, Dr. Dennis Sustare, James M. Ward, Bill Webb, Steve Winter ). The lineup includes several of the more important figures in the history of RPGs as a whole and Dungeons & Dragons in particular.
Hope to see you here !
