Sneak Peek of Changeling: The Lost at UBCon [Mar. 20th, 2007|09:52 pm]
Gamers in Buffalo, NY

eseme
UBCon has a big announcement. We know this news comes very close to our convention dates, but we just got permission for the event this week:

Saturday April 14 from 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM

Reading from Changeling: The Lost with special guest Jess Hartley


Event Description:
White Wolf has a new game coming out this August: Changeling: The Lost. Although they've been being pretty quiet about it so far, Jess Hartley has been working on the core book and first supplement. White Wolf has given Jess permission to do a short reading from the Core book at UBCon. This will be the first time in the world this material is being shown to the public in this quantity for this game. The reading will take half an hour to an hour, and then Jess will answer questions about Changeling and the other White Wolf projects she has worked on. Please remember that Jess is under non-disclosure agreements with White Wolf, so there will be some questions that she can't answer. NOTE: This event will run one hour from 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM.

This event will be followed by a book singing session with Jess Hartley. If you don’t know Jess, please visit her website at http://www.jesshartley.com

UBCon takes place at the University at Buffalo, State University of New York, and runs Friday the 13th of
April through Sunday the 15th. Our con schedule will be up on our website shortly. Be sure to check
http://wings.buffalo.edu/sa/sarpa/SARPAWEB/index.php or http://www.ubsarpa.com for our schedule and
pre-registration information.

The cost to attend UBCon is $15 for the whole weekend (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday). We also have daily
rates, $4.00 for the one Friday session, $9.00 for the three sessions on Saturday, and $6.00 for the two
sessions on Sunday. If you are only interested in attending this one event and the other panels Jess Hartley will be on before it, you can pay for one four hour session for $4.00 a-la-carte (the Saturday 2:00 PM – 6:00 PM session), and go to the book signing and the dealer’s room.

We invite Changeling fans from all over New York and neighboring states to come to UBCon for this amazing
opportunity. If you are interested in attending UBCon for more than one day, the University at Buffalo has
an excellent visitors’ page with directions and lodging information at http://www.buffalo.edu/directions/ The closest and least expensive hotel is a Motel 6 on Maple Road. We do not have a special con rate, however rooms start at $40 a night. To contact the hotel:
Motel 6 - Buffalo/Amherst
4400 Maple Rd
(716) 834-2231
1-800-466-8356

Please use the official UB website for directions, however due to the event being on a weekend, the normal campus parking restrictions described on that website will not be in effect.

Please feel free to ask any questions you have here or on the same post in my personal journal.

Looking for a few good Garou [Dec. 31st, 2006|10:37 am]
Gamers in Buffalo, NY

thegamemistress
[Current Mood |hopefulhopeful]

I am looking for players for a Werewolf: The Apocalypse game to be played on alternate Saturday afternoons (from approximately 1:30 to 5:30 PM) beginning on January 20, 2007, at UB SaRPA Open Gaming on SUNY Buffalo's Amherst Campus. The game will use the Revised rules. No prior experience with the game system is necessary; the rules will be taught. Beginners are welcome!

The first session of the game will be devoted to character creation; the first IC adventure will be a Rite of Passage (i.e., the final trial that new Garou [werewolves] go through to become full members of their society).

Characters should be starting level Garou characters created specifically for this game; they may be homid or metis. As lupus Garou are rare, the GM's permission is required to play one. Any of the twelve tribes (save Red Talons) from the Werewolf: The Apocalypse Revised rules are acceptable. For those who have played earlier editions of Werewolf, the Stargazers are no longer part of the Garou Concordiat in the Revised rules; therefore, no Stargazer characters will be accepted (nor will characters from the other races of Fera).

The characters will be operating out of the Sept of the Three Old Oaks in the "Endless Mountains" region of northeastern Pennsylvania; more information about the Sept can be found at http://community.livejournal.com/3_old_oaks/664.html.

Please note that I would like this game to include character interaction as well as combat - characters created *solely* for one or the other may be at a disadvantage.

Interested? E-mail thegamemistress AT gmail DOT com for more information.
