This is not organized play; there are no ratings, standardized scripts, nor dealing with character registration. Every By the Basics game is scheduled into a private room; it's simply a shorter, more intimate variety of independently-crafted RPG, much like the thousands of RPGs that DunDraCon has scheduled over the years.
This year, we hope to have By the Basics games with five major systems: Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition, Starfinder, FATE Accelerated, Call of Cthulhu 7th ed. and King Arthur Pendragon 6th ed. These games are great for new players and long-time role-players alike.
These games have struck our staff as particularly worthy of notice. Sometimes it's because the GM or troupe has a long-term record of excellence and a unique style. Sometimes it's because it's a visual spectacle. Or it might be a really big games, or series of linked games, or something that ought to appeal to a particular audience, like kids. Or maybe it's a new product debut we think might be of significant interest.
