Necro 2002 A.I.R.P.G.A.

 Well the trip to Tampa went smoothly there was not much traffic on the highway at 10:00 in the morning when we finally left Fort Lauderdale.  We arrived promptly at 2:00 p.m. Friday afternoon.  Once arriving those of us working the Con went to registration filled out some general paperwork and we received our badges for the weekend.  Considering this was our first event we had not made previous arrangements for discount rates for A.I.R.P.G.A. members and for the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale student body in the future we shall attempt to received discount rates for our members. 

Upon beginning our weekend there were so many events to follow upon that it was very difficult to decide which event to attend and which one to this.  Many events occurred simultaneously and the this did cause some confusion amongst the participants of the convention. 

 The convention consisted of two at Japanese animation.  Rooms running Japanese animation videos all night and day all weekend one-room running sci-fi movies and action movies all weekend, a collectible Card Room, A computer networking games sectioned, collectible cards, tabletop gaming section, miniatures gaming section, and multiple L.A.R.P.S, live action role-playing games along with assorted even such as, auctions, art shows, masquerade contest, parades the IGOR be EGORE here tasting event and many other events.  For the collector there were to dealer rooms selling everything from paintings to antique weapons to go off clothing to books and even animation videos and incense burners and assortments of Jewelry.

 Friday night we had there was a large number of L.A.R.P. games the A.I.R.P.G.A . did not host of those games though we did play a couple of the Dungeons in Dragons third Edition games as well as one member team promoted a home brewed game he's created.

 Around 8:00 Friday night six of us approached the L.A.R.P. headquarters a few of our members needed to create an or recreate Characters for the game by a 8:30 OR 9:00.m. we were out Larping.

 There were quite a few strange occurrences going on throughout the setting but we manage to deal with it pretty well one person did get put to Torker mode and another took quite a bit and aggravated Damage but survived barely.  Torker is a status which in other words means he is so dead but with a little work from his teammates he was eventually revive and had quite a few of his stats all low improved now he is the property of a powerful ranking vampire.

 The game went on through most of the night the Tremere stayed close to their chantey for the majority in the evening.  Truly the only safe place for the powerful and feared Tremere from and who would attempt to steal the great power of a Tremere, though we did wander around and hotel area though no vampires dared attack a group of Tremere.

 Some members of our team spent a good majority of the weekend watching several of the many animation videos there were hosted throughout the animate rooms.  I even spent time in the video room watching several of the many sci-fi movies that were presented through the weekend.  I watched based Odyssey 2010 followed by space cowboy race.  the lineup was pretty interesting they had movies from the above mentioned to fight club star wars to dungeons and dragons, Army of darkness, and literally dozens of other movies running around the clock.  The movie listing would be too much to list here.

 Saturday afternoon was pretty good and as yours truly managed to join into a second edition Dungeon Dragons game where we survive for at an evil vampires and a haunted crypt still there were a few times that the party faired war they.  One of our members was also able to joining into a dungeons and dragons third edition campaign, which was rather interesting as well.  Today several other members of the A.I.R.P.G.A. managed to participate in numerous other tabletop games as well as a couple of computer network games the CON was running.  One network game offered was aliens another was an unreal tournament end of course there was a star Trek tournament on the computer networks.  All of the games were pretty interesting it was suggested that possibly next year the A.I.R.P.G.A. will host a Baldur’s Gate or Ice when the Dale campaign.  If the a anticipated release of Never winter nights is prior to next year's convention the A.I.R.P.G.A. will definitely be a running Never winter nights campaign for all participants of the Con interested in joining me in the network gaming room.

 Approximately 6:00 p.m. A member who was running a new L.A.R.P approached me. This Larp was based on a table top game known as love craft it had to do with many unusual events occurring at a mansion and demons sightings had been seen on about the mansion's property.  The director of the LARP and approached me ask if I would be willing to play and NPC for the game? I agreed to, and from that point on I became known as Dick Dickerson a private detective sent here to investigate the strange occurrences at this manor.  It took team B approximately an hour an a half to locate me. Once they convinced me their meanings were well I supplied team B with a clue but the clue also incorporated a curse, forcing one of their members to permanently change sides for the rest of the game.  Later in the evening I was approached by a team A at this time I'd also been assigned a second NPC position of that of a Dark priest.  Once team A located Dickerson they persuaded me to release a clue that was to help them solve the mysteries occurring but unfortunately the team never realized I was also the Dark Priest so there were unable to receive their second clue in New.  Approximately 8:00 p.m. I was also running as a PC in the vampire LARP again my Tremere clan spent most of the evening in their chantey house although I had to wage war with evil forces running a table top game from 8:00 p.m. through 1:30 a.m. the A.I.R.P.G.A. game was running a second edition dungeons and dragons game.  The game have much mystery and intrigue and it seemed to keep the players very interested to learn more of the story behind our second mission campaign please review the portal.  For 6 or so hrs I was running a game in the RPG room But no vamp dared approach this loan Tremere.  The other clans most feared the wrath of a great and powerful Tremere.  All so it seems no groups from the other LARP managed to locate the Evil Priest for their clue by approximately 1:30 a.m. I cleaned up from the game two return to the Chantree for the Tremere the rest of the evening went uneventful.

 Sunday morning arose early approximately 9:00 a.m. the day began years truly participated in a third edition campaign and other guests of the A.I.R.P.G.A. ran a second edition campaign though I presently do not have the details of that campaign it was a rather high level campaign with Physonic Abilities and all sorts of powerful creatures once the third edition campaign came to an end the A.I.R.P.G.A.  Took another two were of the CON though most events seemed to be wrapping up. 

We went around to see what was going on for the last day of the convention.  It seems there was a few other events: on such as a charity auctions and a luncheon and a few more general get together is regarding the convention but by Sunday afternoon things started to wind down.  Approximately 6:00 p.m. the convention did have a drawing for the years greatest DM as well as the top three players at the convention this drawing required all registrants to be present for the drawing and upon the drawing for the year's best DM who was present they followed it with the number one gamer of the weekend he was present the next three people were not present the second place winner was another general gamer when the drawing came around to the weekend's third best role player that winner just happen to be James Eischen Jr. the son of yours truly he hit third place and received several pretty interesting items such as collectible cards books and games.

 The only events left for the weekend would have been a dinner buffet from 6:00pm to 9:00pm followed by the dead dog party from 9:00 p.m. until midnight though we did have a long drive back to Fort Lauderdale so the A.I.R.P.G.A. group decided to return home and skip the last two events.

 All in all the weekend was a very interesting one and the first official convention that the A.I.R.P.G.A. has been a part of stay tuned to these WebPages for the many more conventions coming up are and ConQuest which are the next two conventions both being hosted in the try county area of south Florida.
