For the 3rd year, however, this year we were lucky enough to be offered an opportunity to take over the old TempleCon event venue and dates! This is great news as we will be able to start the year off with some GREAT Malifaux Events and Tournaments. We also planning to bring Through the Breach sessions to CaptainCon in the special RPG area that has grown the past two years.

  4. --- UPDATE 6/16/2015 --- FAQ added below, please ask more questions if you have them ------------------------------- --- UPDATE 4/22/2015 --- Overall Schedule Document (Can also see how the Malifaux events line up with other CC events here) GG NoVA Qualifier Rules Packet - Note we are following GG pretty strong here, so make sure your stuff is painted and you review the proxy/conversion rules in GG and this rules packet ------------------------------- ******** FAQ: ********* How do I register for events? If you were a kick starter backer you should have received your access email, check your spam. If you did not back the kickstarter, no worries, go ahead and buy an all weekend badge (or single day badge) so you can register for the event(s) you're interested in. Once you've done that you will get access to register for specific events. Event registration is OPEN for all to see here Where can I buy a badge? http://captaincon.com/?product=captaincon-2015-1-day-badge How do pairings work for the team GG on Sunday (I mean Team A is playing Team B...how are players A1, A2, A3 paired against B1, B2, B3) ? See this video for how Sunday's GG Team Event pairing process will work Pairings for teams on Sunday will be chosen based on standard TP/VP/Diff scores totaled for each team. So all of A1, A2, A3 will be totaled and that team will be matched against their best B1, B2, B3 counterpart. It is the team's captain however who decides who in Team A they want to matchup first with whoever Team B's captain chose for the first matchup. This continues until each team member is matched up. The only information shared between teams is the list of masters factions they have available to their team. STAY TUNED FOR UPDATE ON PAIRINGS An example, Team A has Ophelia, NB Lynch, and TT McCabe. Team B has Sonnia, Daw, and Raspy. Team A chooses player A1 (and Ophelia) in secret, and Team B chooses player B3 (and Daw) in secret. Those players are to play (table assignments are done separate). Team A secretly chooses A3 (and NB Lynch), while Team B secretly chooses B2 (and Sonnia). Finally, A2 (with TT McCabe) and B1 (with Raspy) are matched since they are the remaining players/masters. Will paint scores factor into either event? If so...how is that done? Painting scores will not be factored in for either event. If you want to enter for painting awards there is the Draconic Painting Awards going on that may be worth entering. The only requirement is that on Saturdays NoVA qualifier models must be painted. Also, not that teams competing who prove to a TO during a round they used a fully painted army get extra points for team scoring over the entire weekend. How much time is allotted for play, crew/scheme selection, and the pairings process? For Saturday see the Rules Packet above. For Sunday I need to solidify it but rounds will be quicker due to time frame. I've allocated 60min lunch break for Sunday though as well. Sunday is 3 rounds also not 4 so will be quicker. Typically its 2hours a round and 15min setup/crew selection Also, the wording is a little unclear as to what cannot be duplicated in the team event....do you mean masters can't be duplicated or factions can't be (with the exception of duel faction)? What I mean by duplications is that no team can have a master duplicated on Sunday, but you can have masters from different factions on the same team. So you can play gremlins Somer and someone else on your team can play Lady J in guild. You could also have something like Lady J, Sonnia, and Lucas McCabe (as either TT or Guild). Another example that is totally legal is you could run TT McCabe, Guild McCabe, and Ophelia. So yes you can have same master as long as playing from one of the different duel factions it legally can be played with. Sundays team event registration page only lets me sign up a team, is this correct? Currently (as of 6/16/2015), that is the restriction for that registration page. I am working with the CaptainCon web team to get that changed. However, on Sunday if you are not part of a team you WILL be put on a team of three! Links to event page information on CaptainCon site: All-Weekend Team Event Info Friday Enforcer (Ignore the 'dice roll at high noon', that's clearly a PP left over from the web team ) Friday Henchman Hardcore Saturday NoVA Qualifier (Rules Packet is HERE and is the FINAL WORD) Sunday Team GG (I will get a final rules packet up for this soon, sorry been busy but its standard GG with the pairings I mentioned above) ************************ That's right ladies and gentlemen. Planning is underway for CaptainCon 2015. After the huge success and large turnout last year, we're looking to expand of course! The fine fellas over at New England Privateers are already planning, the hotel was reserved back in July so 2015 is locked in. Looks like we even may get MORE space. With that said, I want to put the call out to the community as I know there is a strong Malifaux presence in the New England, New York, and rest of the East Coast area. What do YOU want to see different from last year. Right now my initial plans are as follows (this will be updated as we move forward): ***NEW*** Hardcore Event (going to tighten up the rounds and make it faster to play) ***NEW*** Doubles format (stay tuned) 2x Gaining Grounds events (that's right everyone, going to run a late night Gaining Grounds As always we'll have our amazing tables, and MAYBE even some new ones. So please, chime in here, PM me, or send me a message on Twitter (@PFalcon83). What do you want to see! As always the CaptainCon site also has info and their Facebook.
  5. ----- Update 7/20/2014 ----- Pre-registration has closed for all CaptainCon events. There are still slots available so don't dismay. If you are planning on attending and haven't signed up there WILL be enough tables for any extra day-of show ups. I am also placing here the official rules packet since I've been getting a lot of questions about Doppleganger rules and the soulstone side pool. Please feel free to still ask but I hope this will answer most everyones questions on it. CaptainCon Doppelgänger Packet ------------------------------------ See update below for PreReg and schedule info. I am proud to announce that I am involved in a pretty cool event being organized by the guys who run large events (500+ unique players) at Templecon. The New England Privateers have approached me and I have been working closely with them to bring Malifaux to their event July 25 - July 27 in Taunton, MA called CaptainCon. I won't bore you with the details of the con overall as that is what the KS is for. This post is for the Wyrd and Malifaux specific stuff. The link to the KS is here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/neprivateers/captaincon-2014 Joe and I also did a recording with Paul (from NE Privateers) about the event, etc. Go take a listen over here: http://cheatedfatesradio.podbean.com/2014/03/15/cheated-fates-radio-and-the-captain-of-cons-or-polygamers-and-proud-of-it/ This thread is to serve as a place to find out more information on the Malifaux events....yeah that's right events, plural. I won't go into the details on all of them just yet, but just expect the normal good time Malifaux events that we all have come to love! So to the specifics that we know now: When: July 25 - July 27 Where: Taunton, MA (Holiday Inn) ** Don't book rooms yet ** - Reduced Con rates WILL be available soon What: Malifaux (and other games) for 3 days straight, halls and gaming areas will be open 24 hours straight! Who: NE Privateers are organizing, myself and other NE Henchman will be doing all Wyrd events. For now, all Wyrd event Q&A can be sent directly to me via PM or Twitter (@PFalcon83) Registration: While possible you will be able to buy "at the door", we don't expect that to be the norm. If you wish to attend you'll want to pledge for the KS. The organizers are using the survey as a key indicator to help them plan once funded. Please find a pledge level that fits for you if you plan on attending. There are great options, and if you don't see one I may be able to see about opening other options. Stay Tuned for more information posted here. Also, support the KS please Let me know if you have questions here, or post over on the KS comments area. Looking forward to showing a large presence of Wyrd gaming fun at this event, so your support. Even if you can't attend, pledging $5 shows you want to see things like this more often.
