SHO 2018

This is a blog post I’ve been meaning to write for some time – almost 12 months in fact.

About this time last year I attended a local convention in its inaugural year. Primarily tabletop wargaming in nature, it still featured a small RPG floor wth a few organised games and workshops. The idea was there, but the RPGs were a bit of an afterthought. I saw potential, and approached the Con owners with a few suggestions for the next year. I also attended PAX Aus the month after, and returned with an even more refined concept.

After another conversation with Mike and Emma I was committed to writing a D&D Adventurer’s League CCC for the Con, with the ambition to run it there. Soon I was assisting to co-ordinate the RPGs. Not long after I was committed to running the RPG floor. This is very new territory for me, but thankfully Mike and Emma are now hardened veterans.

Flash forward, and the last month has seen a flurry of activity. My CCC will premiere the Con, and headlines an exciting line up of great games. We now have 24 DMs, panelists and volunteers with more than 170 hours of RPG games and events scheduled across the three days. I’m excited, elated and terrified.

Over the next three days I’ll bring you all the action, ups and downs of SHO 2018. Stay Tuned!
