CanCon 2006 — a perspective of the uninitiated

By Kerces - 27 January 2006 5

It was with a certain amount of trepidation I found myself being taken into the barely air-conditioned tin shed that is CanCon 2006 this morning. All I knew about it beforehand came from some scathing comments by the girlfriend of one of the participants about “little men” and the painting thereof.

The front foyer had the following sign in it. I peered in the door of the room that supposedly had magic in it, but to my eyes it looked like a bunch of people lounging round with no magic of either the Potter or Copperfield variety in sight.

Entering the main room and I was overwhelmed by the sight of men peering at tables. On closer examination some of the longer haired of these were actually women (but only some).

The tabletop goons outnumbered the roleplaying geeks long ago. Only by voiciferous protest do the RP gamesmanage to hold on to their niche in this nerdorgy.

Or so I’m told, gaming conventions have the stench of social desperation hanging all over them, I gave up on Cancon long ago.

Ah – maybe you can have a look for us next year. I’ve heard you have to don a t-shirt that says “i am not a plot device” if you want to observe the role playing.

That’s one funny write up Kerces, thanks for that.

There were several signs which looked rather hastily made saying “Role playing upstairs” but we didn’t venture up.

NO role playing? I thought that’s what canCon was all about – sort of theatre sports stuff?
