Enbicon News

With small numbers/tickets sold we unfortunately had to cancel the DDEP08-02 “Stardock Under Siege” epic. In its place we will offer single adventures offered by the Epic DM/Admin Crew to be offered Saturday, September. 28th. Below is list of offerings:
Fai Chen: Saturday 11PM-12PM

Saturday 9 AM
Escape from Wheloon (lvs.1-4), 6 spots, Ryan Finn
The walled city of Wheloon holds the criminal population of Cormyr. The residents of that place are bound to it forever and cut off from the outside world. Inside, plans are made and malcontents pool their resources – and outside, forces influence the innocent to ensure that a dire plot can be realized without interference from the knights and mages that guard the realm. Now you’re here with no memory of what brought you to Wheloon, and all you can think of is finding out why!

Saturday 1PMFane of the Night Serpent (lvs. 5-10), 6 spots, Steven Hirtle

A curse has befallen the continent of Chult. Those that have died and have been raised, are now suffering a terrible wasting disease that does not respond to any known cure. Divine divination has pinpointed the source to a Yuan-Ti temple hidden beneath the Lost City of Omu. You are to infiltrate the temple, discover the plots of the Yuan-Ti and put an end to this curse.
Undermoutain: The Musical (tier 2 pregens, award applied to a tier 2 PC), 5 spots, Andrew Diagle

Minsc and his faithful ally Boo have seen much of the Forgotten Realms, and have been inspired by Volo to produce a guidebook detailing some of the more incredible things that they’ve experienced!
Red War: Housekeeping (lvs.11-16), 6 spots, Ryan Finn

The dawn of the final day arrives: The Red War looms on the horizon, and nothing can stop what is to come. But in those early hours before carnage begins, a group of adventurers are tasked with a covert operation to remove sensitive information left behind by the factions and sow subterfuge. Will internal and external influences keep them from completing their missions?

Vendor Applications

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!

Code of Conduct

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!!

Deadlands!

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

Silver Level Sponsors!

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.

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.
