Why Back Us

We need to fund the entire operation in advance, and we've got some incredible backer rewards to make that happen. As a backer you get:

  • early access to event sign-ups
  • substantially lower prices than those who pay at the door
  • access to all non-exclusive convention events
  • eligible for special drawings leading up to and during the convention
  • eligible for stretch goals and add-ons like commemorative dice, t-shirts, and more!

Backers who commit to host events or volunteer can select a reward level that reflects an even lower price, all the way to down to one dollar! We've got some great early-bird and premium packages, and if you like memorabilia you'll want to check out our dice, t-shirts, and more! Exhibitors can lock-in their booth space early and use add-ons to get more space! Supporters and Sponsors aren't left out either. Got a group? We have group pricing, too.

Importance of the Campaign

Funded with KickstarterWith the Overland Park Convention Center, the Role-Players Guild of Kansas City has secured an outstanding event facility in a great location with easy access to the highway, tons of parking, incredible amenities, an amazing attached hotel, and lots of room for growth going forward. But as with many great venues, payment is due upfront. Most of the money has already been paid out of the Guild's coffers, but some remains. We need to wrap up the minimum amount of funding with our Kickstarter, and then replenish our funds through stretch goals, perks, and other special rewards. If we make back our investment, we'll continue hosting the event with the same high production values next year!

More About the RPGKC

Role-Players Guild of Kansas CityThe Role-Players Guild of Kansas City, Ltd. is a non-profit group of role-playing game enthusiasts dedicated to bringing quality gaming to all and educating the public about that gaming in Kansas City and the surrounding areas since 1990. One of the largest game clubs in the midwest, we maintain relations with many game companies, industry luminaries, local game shops, and Midwest gaming groups. We play mainly roleplaying games and board games, along with some miniatures, card games and LARPs. Our members play at Guild-hosted events and often arrange their own game sessions. The majority of our members reside in the Kansas City metro area, with some located across the nation. New players welcome!

 

Heads-up! Our friends over at KantCon appeared in the Kansas City Store this morning! Dave Helling interviewed a number of folks and captured the great flavor of the event!
