This is not organized play (though we have organized play scenarios at DunDraCon too); 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 three major systems: Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition, the new Starfinder, and FATE Accelerated. These games have been popular the last couple of years, and are great for new players and long-time role-players alike.
Teens who wish to play in the games scheduled in the Teen Priority Room can come to room 334 any time before the registration deadline to get priority registration for those games.
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.
