Year 5.

Phew. Who would have thought we would have made it this far? But I digress.. THE BIG NEWS!

SkålCon 2019 is moving locations! This year we’ll be at the Crowne Plaza Minneapolis West!

You may be familiar with this venue. It’s been the home of Con of the North for many years now, and we are excited to grow into this new space.

When: September 20-22, 2019

Where: The Crowne Plaza Minneapolis West!

How do i get in?! Register @SkalCon.org

As always we will donate proceeds to our favorite local charity: Tubman
(Tubman's donation wish list)

This year’s group of Special Guests contains many of our local favorites, and is growing by the week!

Tonya Woldridge, Organized Play Manager – running retired scenario “Blood at Dralkard Manor” as well as Pathfinder Second Edition kickoff scenario “Origin of the Open Road”

Thurston Hillman, Developer for Starfinder Society – running his very own exclusive scenario “Into the Perplexity: The Second Trial”

Jaye Sonia, Owner and Publisher of Storm Blood Studios, running his own Bloodlines and Black Magic scenario

Clinton Boomer, Author Extraordinaire – joining Jaye Sonia for Bloodlines and Black Magic, as well as another rendition of his retired Pathfinder scenario “Hands of the Muted God”

Jenny Jarzabski, Author Extraordinaire – running her newest scenario, Starfinder Season 2 kickoff scenario: “Pact World Warriors”

Scott Young, Author Extraordinaire – running his very own Pathfinder Society scenarios - but which will it be?

And these are just the confirmed special guests and events, with more to come!

Finally... Only Jon can truly wrap up an announcement like this:

I want to take a moment and thank everyone who has helped make our little con be such a success. I think how in the hell are we gonna do better than last con and Every Year y’all show me the spirit of giving is alive and well here. I’ve seen what our efforts do for Tubman and the people they help; knowing we make a difference in someone’s life makes all the work, all the late nights, all the cajoling (“Yer gonna come visit us this year, right?”), all the planning, and everything else involved with putting on a convention so worth it. I am humbled by everyone’s generosity. Truly, thank you so very much!

Watch this thread for updates about registration, as well as anyone else joining us.

Lastly, as always...
Lets do this people!

I want to take a moment to highlight one of my favorite parts of Skål Con.. the Tubman Food Drive.

We had a simple thought.. why not include a collection of canned goods and offer a minor in game reward to the players?

It grew so much more than Food... It isn't even fair to call it a food drive anymore... Last year we collected and donated a Van-Full of desperately needed goods - Towels and Soap, Deodorant and Shampoo, Toothpaste and Diapers... and of course dry goods

I honestly cannot put an estimate how much the community has given the first four years - and we have no intention of stopping now!

So please check out the Tubmn wishlist - up 15 items per person will grant an increasing benefit for the weekend!

Let's do this people!

Tubman is so worth all of the hard work putting on this little con.

I know you want to come. You know you want to come. So make it happen already! Good seats still available! Come just to watch SWAT get taken apart during the Siege of Gallowspire! (That right there is worth the price of admission)

Watch THUNDERLIPS! fling his chicken one last time. Hear Gripli argue with Pig before they ride off in to the sunset (still bickering...)

All I'm sayin is that's a lot of entertainment.

Dark Archive 4/5 Venture-Lieutenant, Minnesota—Twin Cities Metro East

We are going to have such a great time!!

We're working hard to make sure the new space is going to be amazing!

Laura Shaw and I are working on a Paranoia: Starfinder Edition game for the VIPs/Authors to play while the audience can make modest donations to ~improve the game :D

In an effort to make friday more exciting for all the awesome people that come in to help us setup or just take the whole day off so they can hang out.

(guys we have a STAGE this year!!!!)

Also there's a panel to ask questions after the Paranoia game.

I AM SO PUMPED I CAN'T EVEN SOME DAYS!!!

I look forward to seeing all of you.

We are working on GMing assignments. If you've turned in the form AJ will get back to you as soon as he gets that round of assignments done. It's quite the process with all these tables. I can't imagine doing all the work that he does on it. I'll stick with figuring out the other stuff. :D

For someone flying in from out of town, do any locals have a suggestion on the best way to get from airport>hotel and back? I can resort to Lyft\Uber if necessary, but...

So, as we're still learning, we've now added a few rooms to our block for Thursday and Sunday.

If you try and register for the hotel, and find the block is full, please let us know at our contact page. We can get more rooms if needed.

You need to register first. After that you should be able to select what you want to GM.

If anyone needs Airport pick up/drop off:

I am putting together a spreadsheet so I can get an idea of who could (a) carpool or (b) be picked up by someone

We are a bit further out this year and I'm happy to help coordinate people who need assistance getting to the hotel.

I'm also getting some more Thur/sun rooms.

Playing at Thursty's table that slot as well. Numbat1, WishingWells, myself (and three more I guess) will knock 'em dead!

I am planning to try another round of GM assignments next weekend if the players claim their table slots.
