Here's the schedule for my events for NTX this year:

- Saturday morning/afternoon: "John Eric Holmes seminar" with Chris Holmes

And here are the full descriptions:

#1: Tom Moldvay's CH-1 The Morandir Company
Dates: Friday afternoon 2pm
Duration: 4 hours
Required Skill Level: Regular Play of Specific Game
Number of Players: 7
Event Description: Play Tom Moldvay's long-lost adventure module, CH-1
The Morandir Company, the unpublished prequel to CH-2 Seren Ironhand
(published by Moldvay's Challenges International in 1986), and CH-3
The Mountain King (also the unpublished). Twelve centuries ago,
Morandir was home to the Alder Mountain dwarves. The mines of
Morandir were famous for their rich ores and gemstones, and from the
depths of Morandir the dwarves crafted works of surpassing beauty.
The Alder dwarves dug deeper and grew richer as the centuries passed,
until one day a terrible earthquake shook the roots of the mountains.
The quake diverted the Seren River, and flooded much of Morandir,
scattering the surviving dwarves as refugees throughout the Known
World. The Seren River still flows from a cave in the face of Alder
Mountain, but no dwarves call it home today. No one alive has beheld
the glorious treasures cached within the mountain... until now.
Explore Tom Moldvay's unpublished treasure: bring your graph paper,
dice, and a healthy dose of paranoid courage! Royal charter and
