But Mirmulnir is just the vanguard of the newly resurgent forces of Dragons, and it will not be the last to challenge The Dragonborn.

MODCon Kicks off December 4th

MODCon 2020

MODCon Friday, December 4th, is How to be a Great GM day! In collaboration with the YouTube channel How to be a Great GM, Modiphius has an amazing line-up of some of the top GMs, DMs and storytellers in the RPG space together to talk all things TTRPG.

Starting at 8pm UCT, Cody from Taking 20 and The Dungeon DudesMonty and Kelly will join Guy from How to be a Great GM in the discussion ‘Things I wish I knew when I started GMing’. If you have not yet GM’d a game, or if you have been doing it for years, the panel promises to be a mixture of deep insight, zany craziness and all round fun.

Following that at 9pm UCT Guy will grill Nate from WASD20 and Seth from Seth Skorkowsky on the basics of Game Mastering. What does it take to be a genuinely great GM? These two guests know their business and are not afraid to get their hands dirty. Questions from the audience are encouraged!

At 10pm UCT Janet Forbes from World Anvil joins Guy and Seth as they try to figure out what are the next steps a GM should take in terms of upping their games. With their collective knowledge on worldbuilding, story crafting and insane love of all things… odd… the trio will unpack your questions whilst trying to find the meaning of life as a GM.

Closing off Friday’s madness, Guy will run a special game of Star Trek Adventures featuring Janet, Seth, and Mhaire from Orkenspalter TV. The game, however, is not your normal game of Star Trek Adventures. Every 15 minutes the game stops and the players and GM will unpack why they did certain things, what motivated them to make a rules call, what drove the players to do a certain thing, deep insight into how these folks play. It’s live, and your input will make all the difference so don’t miss out on that.

Saturday continues the MODCon experience with more panels and play-throughs – you can find the latest information on the MODCon home page.
