Due to COVID-19 much of this info could change
Welcome to the North Texas RPG Convention! The NTRPG Con focuses on old-school Dungeons & Dragons gaming (OD&D, 1E, 2E, or Basic/Expert) as well as any pre-1999 type of RPG produced by the classic gaming companies of the 70s and 80s (TSR, Chaosium, FGU, FASA, GDW, etc). We also support retro-clone or simulacrum type gaming that copies the old style of RPGs (Swords & Wizardry, Castles & Crusades, and others). ANY RPG games are welcome at the Con, be it D&D 4e, Pathfinder, or something we haven't even heard of, just be sure you can fill a table with 5-6 people before you ask to have it added to the schedule...
Our 13th annual convention dates are: Thursday June 3, 2021 @ 1800 until Sunday June 6, 2021 @ 1800
The Con cost is $80.00 to attend for entire Con. Daily rates are $40 except Sunday, which is $30.00
During Registration period, you can buy Con T-Shirts, and purchase discounted "squeaky cage" tickets in preset quantities. (you can also purchase Vendor Tables, Convention Rooms, Sponsorships, and Advertising)
Many things including merchandise are not available after March 31, 2021
Many attendees donated their badges to the Con in 2020 to help with expenses due to the COVID-19 event. Because of that, there will be a $40.00 discount offered during registration. No Early Bird etc, this year, just a discount since not all the funds donated were needed. Those that rolled over their badges (ie: didn't donate their badge) will have new badges issued to them (might be a while before I get this done, but I have notes on everyone) Don't buy a badge if you asked to have it rolled over.
Please look around, read up and register if you plan to attend. You must pay for one day or a weekend before you are able to register for a game.
If you want to sign up to run a game, please buy your badge, then select the "Host" drop down box and submit your game.
The Con will be held at the Westin DFW Airport Hotel
: 4545 West John Carpenter Freeway, Irving , Texas 75063. It's just north of the airport. We have a special rate for con attendees ($110.00/night) that is in effect until May 15th, 2021 so don't delay in getting your reservations.
