Entrants need to be lined up by April 1, so read on and then talk to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., AetherCon's head honcho, to get started.

AetherCon IV is looking for Miniature Companies big or small to take part in our inaugural 'Fighter, Cleric, Wizard, Rogue' Miniature Painting Tourney. There are only 16 total slots available for Company/Painter Teams. We will need as the title suggests one fighter, one cleric, one wizard, and one rogue, brand and model non-specific. Further commissions done for third parties between April 1, 2015 and September 30, 2015 will be eligible for this tourney.

Painters can be supplied by the miniature company or by us as the latter prefers.

Voting will take place at AetherCon IV from November 13-15, 2015. The format for tournament voting will be round robin group play much like the World Cup in European Football so as to give all entrants the maximum opportunity to have their efforts seen. Tournament groups will be determined and announced on social media during June 2015 and group matches will be announced in the same fashion shortly before the event in November 2015.

Weekend in RokuganWeekend in Rokugan is an amazing three-day tabletop roleplaying convention in Overland Park, Kansas, March 13-15, 2014. It is the "home" convention for the largest living campaign focused on the Legend of the Five Rings world. This is the third iteration of Heroes of Rokugan, which has attracted thousands of players from around the world to take part in a collaborative storytelling and gaming experience like none other.

However, while the campaign has always been free to play, the costs of running the show have gone up as time has gone on. This year, we're in a nicer hotel, which is great! But it costs more, which is less great. Normally, samurai would not concern themselves with lowly matters of commerce, but in this case, the cause is worth it!

This is the fifth and final Winter in Rokugan convention for Heroes of Rokugan III. We'd love it if you joined us!

It's a fun event and if you have a character and haven't already heard of this, check it out. It's an awesome game with a lot of awesome people. You won't be disappointed. Unless you hate Feudal Japan. Then you're just wrong. Have fun people!

Weekend in Rokugan will be held at the Hilton Kansas City Airport, 8801 NW 112 St, Kansas City, MO 64153. Details about the location and hotel accomodations can be found on the Heroes of Rokugan forums.

Extra Life 2014

For the Kids

The RPGKC Extra Life 2014 special event is being held in conjunation with our monthly Game Day, Saturday, October 11th at Galaxy Games' new location at 3500 S 22nd St, St. Joseph, MO (map).

What is it?

In addition to our usual RPGs and board games, we are soliciting donations for the Extra Life charity, benefiting Children's Miracle Network hospitals. Each year Extra Life organizes gaming marathons. Participants solicit donations from friends, familiy, anyone really, similar to the March of Dimes' March for Babies and Bikers for Babies or the Alheimer's Association's Walk to Remember. Donors usually pitch in a dollar for every hour gamed. Game 24 hours, each donor pitches in $24. Voila! We aren't gaming 24 hours at Galaxy Games, but we are gaming 12! How about $2 for each hour? =)

Extra Life Display PictureHow can I help?

Help just by coming and participating, or donating a few dollars (or more), or join our team to solicit donations/sponsors yourself! The charity works all year, culminating in a national gaming event October 25th, so if you can't help out at our special Game Day event, consider alternatives.
