Welcome to ContactCon '04! The Bay Area's newest science fiction convention is starting with a real bang. What could be more exciting than a weekend devoted to alien contact? Fans from all over are coming; the costuming looks to be absolutely fantastic. Distinguished guests from popular television series promise to make the convention a big success. All those UFO sightings in the past few weeks are just coincidence. Or are they?
Something Strange Is Going On . . .
Why are so many prominent scientists, military officials, and business men
showing up? Isn't this taking
multi-media to a bit of an extreme?
And the costumes! Those
tentacles look incredibly realistic.
Why would anyone go to such lengths to produce such awful smelling
slime? Could it be a prop from
one of the TV shows? But doesn't
What is Live Role-playing?
Welcome to Nexus. You and 74 others will become scientists, military officers, diplomats, and other visitors to ContactCon '04. Together, we'll create an exciting alternate history.
Your character is described in a short story about your background and goals, not as a set of statistics. The simple, safe, card-based rules let you back your clever speech up with a little muscle (even if you're a klutz in real life), but encourage creative role-playing and dramatic interaction between characters.
The only audience is you, and there's no script: your actions will shape the future.
Live role-playing is a great way to meet new friends, solve mysteries, and save the world (or take it over!).
Join us at the haunted Hyatt Hotel for the first ContactCon. It promises to be a unique experience. . .
