Venger Con III - July 19-21, 2024

If I weren't limiting myself to one "fly to" convention in a year, so if it were just a tad closer, I'd be going to Venger Con this July. If it's within driving distance for you (which is subjective), Venger Con may be on your bucket list.

VENGER CON III: Revenge of the OSR is happening this July in Madison, WI. This is a small and exclusive (100 attendees max) con held in a very nice and new hotel focused on old-school, OSR, and traditional RPGs, organized by game designer, adventure author, and GM Venger Satanis.  No more shouting to be heard in noisy, distracting rooms packed-full of gamer-sardines:

Bundle of Holding - 13th Age MEGA

From the Bundle of Holding website, a 13th Age Bundle:

Adventurer! This revived December 2022 13th Age Megabundle once again presents .PDF ebooks of the freewheeling tabletop fantasy roleplaying game 13th Age from Pelgrane Press. 13th Age combines the best parts of traditional d20 RPGs with story-focused rules that let you run the kind of game you want. 13A gives you unique characters who, through their icon relationships, are immediately embedded in the setting in important ways – customizable monsters – and escalation dice for exciting, fast-moving battles.

Especially suited for new 13A players, this bargain-priced Megabundle revival once again gives you everything you need to run your own 13th Age campaign in the Dragon Empire. And all the scenarios and source material are 100% compatible with the new 13A Second Edition coming to Kickstarter this summer!

For just US$19.95 you get all nine titles in this revived offer's Starter Collection (retail value $158) as DRM-free ebooks, including the complete 13th Age Core Book (plus the Free RPG Day adventure Make Your Own Luck), the 13 True Ways rules expansion, the Bestiary and Bestiary 2, The Book of Loot and Loot Harder, The Book of Ages, the introductory adventure Crown of Axis, and the Game Master's Screen and Resource Book.

And if you pay more than the threshold price of $40.08, you'll level up and also get this revival's entire Bonus Collection with ten more titles worth an additional $172, including the supplements The Book of Demons and Book of the Underworld; the adventures Shards of the Broken Sky, Elven Towers, Eyes of the Stone Thief (plus the conversion for D&D 5E), and Shadows of Eldolan; three sets of iconic Battle Scenes (with their accompanying Map Folios) – High Magic & Low Cunning, The Crown Commands, and Fire & Faith; and the 171-page adventure Diamonds and Shadows, a collection of seven modules from the 13th Age Organized Play program available exclusively in this offer and nowhere else.
