Come play in one of this year's contest games and help determine the winner! You will be cast at the door to play in a game written a couple of weeks prior to Intercon in the space of 24 hours. The games will have a required genre, element, and prop(s) that are given the the game writers at the beginning of the writing period. The experience at the con will be getting to play these games. The themes/elements/genre will be revealed after the games are played. The themes for Intercon Q's games were a genre of parallel words, a theme of hope / false hope, an element of trickster animals, and a prop that was a strand of green lights. The intent behind the writing competition is to get people together to write new games and have fun. The intent behind playing the game at the con is to give feedback to the writers and also to have fun.

You as a player will be asked after the game to fill a questionnaire about your gameplay experience to help evaluate the game. You get to play in a surprising and brand new game, and the winning authors get cash prizes and all the glory.


Note: Players will be divided equally between the teams/games for each time slot. Players may sign up for both time slots, as different games will run in each.
Note: If you are participating in writing any of the Iron GM games, please do not sign up to play, as that will disqualify your team.

Players should be 16 years old and older, please, as there may be adult themes in some of the games. Players may be 13+ if accompanied by an adult.

Halwes, Tara

Tara is here to help. Tara will not write your game for you, but Tara will copy edit, judge, set up, collate, runtime GM, or NPC for you. Tara will likely forget to eat. Tara accepts Starbucks cold brewed coffee as bribes.

Sward, Kimberly

Kim Sward has been coming to Intercon since roughly Intercon H or so. They have volunteered for the con in the past as a member of the Game Proposal Committee, been the Game Proposal Chair for multiple years, and were the Con Chair for last year's Intercon, Intercon Q - Intercon Quixotic.

This year Kim has just started serving on the NEIL Board, the governing body that oversees Intercon, NELCO, etc. As part of their past and current roles, Kim has worked with the NEIL Board President and the Safety Chair for Intercon R to create additional safety documentation for the convention.

Kim is also helping to run the Iron GM competition for Intercon R. This is their second year in that position.

Kim first started larping while a student at RPI. They have participated in many forms of larp since then, and are active in several boffer campaigns in the greater New England area. Kim enjoys playing mischief makers, foxes, and pirates. Larps with singing are a definite plus.
