So far we have 24 games registered at EnBiCon this year, and while registration is closed, technically there is still time to get your game in under the wire as space allows.
Just a reminder that vendor applications close tomorrow! Thank you to all who have applied! You’ll be receiving an email by Tuesday morning (I work Monday so emails will be sent starting around 11pm) telling you if you were officially accepted or waitlisted.
We can’t wait to be able to share our list of vendors with you all! That will come at the end of the month; however, we can say that The Comic Hunter Fredericton will definitely be there!
We welcome you to join us at Enbicon 2019 for this EPIC adventure!
An EPIC is a grand adventure involving multiple tables working together to defeat a common foe. This time we save Waterdeep in “Stardock Under Seige” (DDEP08-02) from an attack from another plane of existence!
An illithid invasion fleet threatens Stardock, and only you and your allies can stop it!
Designer: M.T. Black and Shawn Merwin
Playtime: 3 hours
Levels of play: 1-16
Adventure League (AL) legal characters or provided pre-gens.
We are requesting a $5 donation to the Fredericton SPCA to reserve your seat. Table space is limited, so reserve your seat to guarantee your spot.
What you need to bring?
-A fully “ready” Adventure League (AL) legal character and log sheet.
-‘Enough’ dice for your character.
-A familiarity and basic understanding of both Dungeons & Dragons, your character and AL Rules (See below for rules).
-Desire to have a great time!
-Your miniature (optional)
-This is a timed event. Players are expected to work together and cooperate above and beyond what you might see at an AL session.
-Reserving a spot at a specific table is in no way 100% guaranteed. The DM list is not set in stone, and we may be forced to move players from their desired seating (i.e. to balance out table seating).
-Arriving late may forfeit your spot, please arrive early!
-If you do not have an AL character ready at the start of the event due to any reason, you WILL be provided with a pre-generated character. There is no time at or before the event to create a character and get it approved. The DMs/admins will be busy.
-We reserve the right to expel disruptive players. This may be from the table or the event pending our discretion.
– Players to be seated maximum of 20 minutes before start of play.
– Please keep table noise down when announcements are being made
Sign up Here on the Warhorn, register and pick your tier of play.
Also important to note is that Fai Chen will also be in attendance, Life in Waterdeep downtime events will be available, as well as items to buy and trade.
So far we’ve been lucky enough to have a great group of attendees, staff, volunteers, guests, vendors and more. However as the convention continues to grow it becomes important to provide an official code of conduct for the event. Not only does this serve to enable us to continue to provide a safe environment or everyone who attends Enbicon, but it also makes it easier for us when we’re talking to potential sponsors, guests and event organizers. For example, in order to apply for a D&D Adventure League epic, WOTC requires a convention to have an official code of conduct in place.
Our draft Code of Conduct can be found here. Again, we appreciate that in all the years we’ve done Enbicon things have gone smoothly. Having this in place simply allows us to continue to evolve the convention to the next level.
And yes, we have someone who is working on getting a multi-table D&D Epic for Enbicon 2019!!
We love all of our sponsors, and are excited to announce that Pinnacle Entertainment Group has donated a copy of the Deadlands 20th Anniversary edition for the 2019 FSPCA Charity Auction! It has a $60USD value, and the opening bid will be $30CAD.
They have also sent us $5 coupons that will be given to the first 50 people who pre-purchase their full weekend tickets, once we make them available. We are still working on getting that system working, as it is our first time doing pre-purchase of tickets, but we will let you know as soon as we have more information for you guys about that.
Make sure to check them out at peginc.com
Not only do we have a Gold Level Presenting sponsor but we also have two(!) Silver level sponsors. One of whom is brand new to us and one is a returning partner from 2018!
Ice Cream Dice
Time for some real Sweet Rolls!
Ice Cream Dice out of Edmonton is (a this writing) 16 days away from their kickstarter ending! They funded in 9.5 hours and have blown past the $75K stretch goal in just two weeks. We’re very happy for their success and are super happy to have them as a sponsor for Enbicon 2019!
I created Ice Cream Dice to address the severe lack of nearly edible looking dice in the marketplace. I believe I have succeeded.
OK, OK, that wasn’t actually why I started Ice Cream Dice. I wanted dice that were fun, unexpected at a gaming table and a little bit whimsical, all while being usable. I started it because I was so tired of seeing the same dice offered on different sites, by different companies with different names. Names like ‘Goblin’s Blood’ and ‘Dragon’s Blah Blah Blah’.
When I got to thinking about fun and whimsical, ice cream came immediately to mind and I started on a journey to design the most ice creamy looking dice I could.Marc Schubert
The Comic Hunter
The Comic Hunter opened in Fredericton October of 2018, literally days after Enbicon 2018. We reached out to them at the last minute then and they came in as a vendor. This year they are back as a Silver Level Sponsor but more than that, they are big fans of the convention. Almost every time Marie is in the story they ask her about 2019 and what we’ve got going on. They’re a great spot to stop in for comics, trading card games (and singles), board games and RPGs. They host several events each month – D&D games, Magic, Keyforge, learn to play board game nights and more. You can follow them on Facebook for all the event details.
We look forward to continuing to partner with them and will shortly be working out the details on some sort of Enbicon fundraiser to perhaps coincide with free RPG day in June.
