Gen Con Indy – 2021 – In Person!

NASCRAG will be back at Gen Con In-Person in 2021!  Join us for NASCRAG’s 42nd year of fun, puzzles, riddles, and roleplaying.

We’ll only have a limited number of judges so we won’t be able to run our regular tournament format.  Instead, we’ve taken a classic three part tournament from 1998 – NORTHERN L’ATTITUDES – and reworked it as 3 stand-alone events.   Please note that these are stand-alone events and you DO NOT need to run them in any order. 

In addition we will be running DESERT OF DESTINY from the Rosenchild Finishing School for Wayward Nobles series of events.

And, a big announcement here, we are returning to our roots and presenting these events in Fifth Edition Dungeons and Dragons!

Bonus Announcement!  Each player will get a code they can use to get a copy of all four events that Nascrag is running at GenCon in 2021. (After the convention of course)

NASCRAG – Desert of Destiny – Available 1 pm and 7 pm daily

Your absent-minded divinations teacher has asked you to deliver a note for her. This simple task quickly turns into a dangerous, plane-hopping road trip. 

Join us for Nascrag’s 42nd year of fun, riddles, puzzles and role-playing! The students of the Rosenchild Finishing School for Wayward nobles must be ready for just about anything. So when your teacher asks you to deliver a note, you weren’t surprised that it involved visiting another world. But you didn’t realize it would involve a train ride through the desert or a cross-dimensional war! And what is with the strange visions of horses you’ve all had? You’d better figure it out or you might not survive to make it your next class!

NASCRAG – Northern L’Attitudes – Invasion – Available Thu/Fri at 1 pm and 7 pm

Northern barbarians are invading Volkenland, led by a strange wizard. But instead of an army, the king is sending you and your band of misfits. Good luck!

Volkenland is a long-time ally on the kingdoms northern border. They’ve sent an envoy asking King Andrew to honor the long-standing mutual defense treaty. But instead of an army, the King is sending you – a handful of misfits who have never met before today. This standalone event has been adapted from the first round of the Nascrag 1997 Tournament – Northern L’Attitudes. 

NASCRAG – Northern L’Attitudes – Cryofax’s Lair – Available Fri at 1 pm and 7 pm and Sat at 1 pm

The artifact you need is located on a tropical island in a far southern sea. Unfortunately the only way to get there is through a white dragon’s lair. 

The invasion of Volkenland is being led by a strange wizard and his pet Ice elemental. To defeat the elemental you’ll need to travel to Cayo Hueso (Bone Island) and recover the Dispenser of Nacl. The only way to get to Bone Island in time is through a portal hidden in the lair of Cryofax; a vicious white dragon. Join us for Nascrag’s 42nd year of fun, puzzles, riddles, and roleplaying. This standalone event has been adapted from the second round of the Nascrag 1997 Tournament – Northern L’Attitudes. You DO NOT need to have played any other event in this series to play this one. 

NASCRAG – Northern L’Attitudes – Bone Island – Available Saturday at 1 pm and 7 pm

You’ve made it to Cayo Hueso (Bone Island), but Jimmy has lost the Dispenser of NACL you need to stop the invasion of Volkenland. Maybe Margaritte has it? Players get a pdf of all our 2021 events.

The invasion of Volkenland is being led by a strange wizard and his pet Ice elemental. To defeat the elemental you’ll need to travel to Cayo Hueso (Bone Island) and recover the Dispenser of Nacl from Jimmy. But poor Jimmy seems to be wasting away and has misplaced the artifact. He thinks that maybe he left it with Margaritte but he can’t remember for sure. This standalone event was adapted from our 1997 Tournament – Northern L’Attitudes. You DO NOT need to have played any other event in this series to play this one. 

 
Gen Con On-Line – 2021

For those of you who will be staying home again this year we are running a virtual event for Gen Con On-Line. 

NASCRAG – Into The Wind – available 7 pm ET Thu/Fri/Sat

All the power of Venezia is poised to crush the Pretanic Islands. What can six smelly humanoids do against that? Whatever you decide it’s sure to involve puzzles, role-playing, and exotic locales.

Our 42nd year at Gen Con! This event was originally run at Gen Con 2008 as part of our annual tournament. All players will receive a digital copy of the full 3-round event. Characters include a Bugbear captain, a Gnollish sea-dog, a Venezian emissary, a couple of Kobold dance hall girls, and a faithful goblin lackey.

Gen Con On-line instructions:

Our events will take place on Discord.  We are setting up a server there and we will have virtual marshaling to create teams, just like at a physical Gen Con.

30 minutes or so before game time we will post a link to the Nascrag Discord server in the Event Messaging tool on GenCon.com. You’ll need to already have your Discord account set up ahead of time. DO NOT WAIT until game time to set that up, please.

We also have to collect your tickets. you do that on the Event Detail page on Gencon.com by clicking “Give ticket to event host”.

Please stay on Mute initially as there will be a lot of people in our marshaling area until we move into separate rooms.

Are you joining with a group that you want to play with? Send us an email at [email protected] and give us your names, that will streamline team setup.
