(Character Sheets)  <— Updated 8/6/2017!!!                  (Sign-in Sheet)              


Six strangers wake to find themselves inmates in a bizarre asylum.  Escaping their captivity is only the beginning as the Great Old Ones stir in their slumber, roused by dark rituals in the night.  Porcine disease and even stranger things stalk the land as society collapses.  Mr. Pig is not to be trifled with.

Horror meets humor in Nascrag’s 38th consecutive year at Gen Con.   Our heroes include a Gunslinger, a Gearhead, a Witch, a Viking, a Monk, and an Alien who band together to fight the horror with good role-playing, bad jokes and a whole lot of fun. Featuring original art by Indy Bill Cavalier.

The Nascrag tournament is a two-round, team advancement Pathfinder event.  The qualifying rounds are on Thursday 1 pm and 7 pm, Friday 1 pm and 7 pm, and Saturday at 1 pm.  The Finale (by advancement only) will be at 7 pm on Saturday.  Afterwards (11 pm) Tom Lommel (aka the Dungeon Bastard) will bestow honor, glory, and a gigantic pile of prizes at our annual Award Ceremony / Party.

*  Note: This year’s authors are Jason Smith and Jennie Stanchfield, authors of the Stolen Lives Series of Nascrag adventures.  Jason is also the co-author of the Cult of Yex series of novels.

** Note: Captain Ambivalent and his Accordion of Gold will be performing selections from his new Album; “Save the Orcs!” at our Award Ceremony / Party.  **

Gen Con 2017 Charity Event – 1 Round

Nascrag Presents: To Save the King

(Character Sheets) 

Welcome back to Rosenchilds Finishing School for Wayward Nobles.  King Kirby lies dying.  A sage and alumni of the school, he fell ill during a visit.  Now his fate rests in the hands of the students of the Potions 101 class.  Can they retrieve the ingredients for the cure in time?  You’ll need to race through puzzles, obstacles and interesting characters to save the king. 

In the NASCRAG tradition, Role-playing and fun will be stressed.  New players welcome!  Proceeds from this one-round Pathfinder event will support the official Gen Con Charity partner – Child Advocates Inc

* Note:  The author of the Rosenchilds Finishing School Events is Dana Devries.  Dana also writes for Plaid Chameleon Games.  They put on an amazing 7th sea LARP at Gen Con every year.  This year it is entitled – The Most Interesting Wake in the World

Time Change Announcement (1 pm and 7 pm daily!)


We love our players at NASCRAG. We really do. We’ve said it many times but we do what we do because you folks are so much (darn) fun.

We’ve heard from more than a few of you that the 9 pm slots are just too late. And Thursday’s are crazy for us. We have a 1 pm judges meeting followed by 5 pm – 1 am straight through!

So to fix this we thought “why not just run at 1 pm and 7 pm every day?” The naysayers shouted ( as naysayers often do) “But then we could eat dinner!” “And we’d be getting too much sleep!” In the end we decided if it made the players happy it would make us happy too.

From now on NASCRAG will run it’s events at 1 pm and 7 pm on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday (Saturday 7 pm would be the Tournament finale only).
