The Phoenix Comicon may be just seven weeks away, but you don’t even need to wait that long for some local SF/Fantasy convention madness.
LepreCon 37 will be rocking our own Tempe in less than a month with a more intimate and relaxed atmosphere, focusing on Science Fiction and Fantasy art and writing.
They don’t seem to be kidding when they emphasize art either, as artists and art shows will abound.
One cool thing that stood out to me was their Lite RPG Design Contest, where you can submit your own little RPG, rules and everything, run an adventure with some volunteers, and win votes for the best game. The prizes aren’t huge or anything, but I bet it would be fun to participate.
- May 6th – 8th at the Tempe Mission Palms Hotel & Conference Center.
- Guests include artist John Picacio, and authors Elizabeth Bear & Sarah Monette.
- The gaming should be pretty good, and even has its own website now.
- Ticket prices are all over the place, but you can get a break down here.
- And of course, get all the details on LepreCon’s site.
And no, I couldn’t make it through this post without the obligatory mention that there will be Filking.
Oh yes, there will be Filking.
