TSR CON is running the same weekend as GaryCon XIV. The next chapter in the NuTSR saga begins...

Highlights:
  • Explicitly not checking vaccination status of attendees and no mask requirements.

  • Unnamed TSR Alumni random encounters at the Con.
  • Featured Game: Star Frontiers New Genesis.
  • We now have a rival Con claiming to honor Gary Gygax's memory.
  • Ernie Gygax is promoting this on his FB page. Justin LaNasa has chimed in there.

I don't care bout the vaccine stuff but has Ernie been kicked out of GaryCon? I don't follow any of the drama.
He is allowed to attend, but will not be running games there as he disagrees with the Gary Con mask mandates at the tables. I guess he will be wearing a mask in the halls?

EDIT: I want to point out that Luke answered questions about Gary Con in Ernie's TSR Con FB post's comments. I am sure Luke is thrilled that a second Con is in the same city at the same time as his own, but Ernie is family.

Personally, I'd rather stay at home than attend a con with a mask mandate. Wearing a mask all day is a pain in the ass.

I'd also rather stay at home than attend a con without a mask mandate. That's just not safe in the current situation!

Guess I'll be staying at home for a while...
Same here. Wearing a mask all day long at a convention sounds terrible, and making myself (and my entire household) sick for days and days also sounds terrible. I'll pass.

I feel you on this. Considering the R factor of the Omnicron variant I would not be using anything less than a fitted N95 and those things are the very opposite of comfortable. On the plus size it would mute some of the general noise in the gaming hall... silver lining?

Not American but I wouldn't be going to either one.

Be interesting to see the turnout. If he was smart he would run at a different time same location. Eg WrestleMania weekend and the other indies run shows as well.

Then again smarts seem to in short supply. Must be a logistical problem from Covid Ernie forgot to order them from China.

such a perfect example of what is wrong with thier whole “everyone is welcome” malarkey.

“No politics at the table” But our default, stated in our freaking adverts, and probably plastered everywhere, ill advised politics are the default and may severely hurt you or even kill you, or your loved ones.

And they do understand that forcing the status quoe, theirs, is the whole point.

Considering the times I’ve come home with Concrud, masks doesn’t seem a bad idea - though if you’re sitting in a confined area for 6+ hours with a few hundred people, that’s probably not going to help all that much, especially if you aren’t checking people’s health at the door (not vaccine status, I mean health status).

I was at PAX Prime when H1N1 hit it hard. Fortunately for me it passed me by but I had friends that got it and it floored them. Concrud can be no joke.
