What To Expect At Con On The Cob


Con On The Cob is just 11 days away and we wanted to give you a small preview of some of the great things we’ve got going on at this year’s CotC. This year’s Con On The Cob starts off the year of the Mechanomicon. Our next book is going to revolve around mechanical and steampunk aspects of Silvervine and the world of Cyrus.


Character Creations With Expanded Options – Character creation sessions will be expanded with focuses and skill options that will appear in the Mecahnomicon.


Mechanist Themed Games – All of our official games will be based around mechanist themes, exploring parts of the Cyrus and becoming the inspiration for events that might become canon within the world. The games will also be playtesting new rules we’ll be including in the Mechanomicon, so you’ll get your names in the books as official playtesters.


Airships!!! – One of our key focuses will be on airships. We’ve got Airship creation playtests that will let you create your own Airships. You can then use your airships in our giant airship combat on Saturday at 2pm. When we say giant, we mean giant. The game will eclipse 4 tables and ALL of the area between them…


New Worlds By Other People – Alana Smith will be running some games set in her own world, so check them out and see what others are making with the Silvervine System.


2011-10-03_23-42-37_782Pre-orders Of Something Special – The wrench has always been a symbol of Silvervine and we are working on a deal with Forged Foam (formerly EdHellen) to craft the SVG wrench as a boffer weapon. We’ve got a prototype that we’ll be carrying around, and we’ll be taking pre-orders for anyone who wants one. It’ll be the perfect compliment for any steampunk costume or just a great way to showcase your Silvervine habit. It’s also a great way to punish motivate players. The goblin is not included.
