Maker’s Day: An Embers Social Event

Makers day is a bi-annual Duskwood festival in honour of Vanhier. Throughout the day, innovators and craftspeople show off their latest work, and everyone is encouraged to try their hand at making. At Makers day gatherings, guests brings along something they have made, or are working on. They might share it, gift it, or take it away with them when the gathering ends. Food and drink are common favourites, as are smaller pieces of art, jewellery, or garments.

Tools & materials are often provided, so that guests can craft things while they are together. Many like to experiment with impermanent creations, rolling up - or taking apart - their works to be reused in future creations. The more permanent creations made at makers day are often gifted to other makers day attendees - a symbol of the apprentices’ gifts to the people of Duskwood.

5pm - 11pm, 16 Moir St, Mt Victoria

This is an in character social event for Embers players and crew. . Please bring yourself, food & drink, and anything specific you might like to make (optional). There will be some food and drink provided, and plenty of random crafting materials/tools that will be free for you to use/experiment with.

KapCon 2019

Wellington’s annual roleplaying convention will feature a number of small larps, as well as the Sandman-inspired flagship, “The Storm”:

Travellers from countless worlds who walk the paths between universes often take shelter at the Inn of World’s End while reality storms rage outside.

Reality storms are a common occurrence, and while deadly, travellers have learned their patterns and how to weather them safely. This time, however, the storm continues to rage on and grow in intensity long past when it would normally have abated, and the travellers begin to fear that something is terribly wrong–and then refugees from distant worlds begin to appear at the Inn, speaking of the end of all things…

“The Storm” is a live action roleplaying game for 45 players by Quentin Bourne inspired by Neil Gaiman’s Sandman. It has previously run at Medusa. Signup information will be released closer to the con.

A list of other larps running can be found on the games list here. You can sign up for them here.

9am Saturday - 9pm Sunday. $30 players, $20 GMs / first-time attendees; $5 discount if paid by January 14th 2019. $10 Flagship only. Con signup.

Den of Wolves Megagame

Fleeing from the Wolver Tyranny, the last battleship Aegis leads a ragtag fugitive fleet on a lonely quest…

Den of Wolves is a megagame about politics, survival, and paranoia for a fleet of refugee spaceships, escorted by the Battleship Aegis, fleeing from an implacable enemy – “the Wolvers.” Your homeworlds have been destroyed by the Wolvers, there is no going back. To stay where you are is to be destroyed, to go forward into the deep dark is your only hope of survival. For more information about the game please visit our website at https://housewar.org/den-of-wolves/

This game is being run by the Wellington Megagame Collective, who have run four megagames at conventions in Wellington over the last two years.
