Hi all,

We'd like to continue the tradition of Tekumel events at the U-Con game convention in southeast Michigan. The convention is early this year, October 26-28, so we need GMs to submit events at their earliest convenience. The organizers would like to have events submitted by August 1st. Tabletop role-playing games are mostly what we've done in the Tekumel track, but large LARPS have been been a frequent feature, and board games (The Great Chlen Race?) or miniatures events would be very welcome too.

I'll be "coordinating the Tekumel Track" again this year, which pretty much just means I put the call out to the Tekumelani, and advise on how to schedule events. I'm also happy to act as native guide, since I live nearby. Please don't hesitate to ask if you have questions.

U-Con has a new website this year, but the same address:
http://www.ucon-gaming.org/
There is a webform for submitting your events on the site.
If you do submit an event, please also send me a quick email me to let me know.

There's also an active Facebook group
https://www.facebook.com/groups/2210769945/
and a twitter feed
https://twitter.com/ucongames/

One important note. They haven't quite figured out the location yet. It may be in Ann Arbor, or it may be out closer to Detroit Metro airport, as it was last year. An announcement is expected quite soon. Also there is a new public airport bus service now between DTW and Ann Arbor that is very inexpensive ($12 each way).

I hope to see you at U-Con this year!

Best Regards,

George Hammond

We still have plenty of room for Tekumel events at U-Con this. Please submit them on the con's website (link below) ASAP, and drop me an email message to let me know.

If you are just planning to attend, or even just thinking about attending, I'd be really happy to hear from you as well.

I just learned that Victor Raymond, President of the Tekumel Foundation, will be coming to U-Con. As part of the Tekumel Track we'll have a Barker Memorial Presentation, an update on recent Foundation activities, and Victor will be running one of his classic Jakallan Underworld games, using Professor Barker's own maps of the many layers beneath that very ancient, very rich city.

We'll also have games by Krista Donelly, Beloved of the Lord of Wisdom, and Patrick Brady, one of the trio of authors of the "Tekumel: Empire of the Petal Throne" game.

If you are interested in running a game, please submit your game immediately on the con website so it can be included in the pre-registration material, and send me a note as well.

Hello Tekumelani,

Pasted below is a list of Tekumel events that will be at U-Con this year. I hope this will encourage you to attend, and maybe even run an event.

We particularly could use a Tekumel event Sunday afternoon, and have room Friday afternoon as well. Of course can double up as well, we've done that lots of times in past years.

Pre-registration will open in the next day or two, I'll post the announcement here when it does. You can submit an event any time.

I hope to see you in Ypsilanti,

George

Hello all,

Online registration is now open for all events submitted so far for U-Con and will be open until October 12th. After that you register when you get to the Convention, which costs a little more. To find the Tekumel events, just use the "Search Events" link and enter the search term tekumel.

To get a discount on hotel rooms at the convention site, reserve your room by October 10. There is a link on the front page of the convention website that automatically goes to hotel registration and enters the dates and code. If you prefer to call to make your reservation, the convention discount code is UCOUCOA.

If you run a game, any game, but preferably a Tekumel game, your modest registration fee is fully refunded. Please consider coming and running a game. Submit your event by October 5th to be included in the Con Booklet.

Links for doing all these things are front and center on the homepage of the convention:

http://www.ucon-gaming.org

I hope to meet you there,

George

Hi all,

One of the Tekumel games at U-Con has already sold out, but there are still lots more! We'd be happy to add more as well, but gm's, please act fast. Today is the last day to submit events for the convention book!
http://reg.ucon-gaming.org/gcs/gm/submit.php

The Guest of Honor this year is Jason Caminsky, who is about to publish an rpg based on Mesoamerican culture called "New Fire." His games, seminars, and Aztec inspired art on the con shirt might be of interest to Tekumelani as well.

- Reserve your hotel room by Wednesday October 10 to get the con discount:
http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/d ... p=resvlink

- Preregister by Friday October 12:
http://reg.ucon-gaming.org/gcs/reg/register.php

Convention starts Friday October 26 at 12pm. See you soon!

George
