FauxCon X Theme


... what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows ...

Because FauxCon will be run at the same time and venue as Conquest - in effect, 'shadowing' that convention - it has been declared that FauxCon's theme of the year is Shadows!

For we are strangers before thee, and soujourners, as were all our fathers: our days on the earth are as a shadow, and there is none abiding.
Roleplaying games could be said to be shadows of the real world - tales of things that have been imagined, tales intended to entertain or educate, but ultimately only existing in the minds of the players and GM.

Though I walk through the shadow of the valley of death, I will fear no evil, for I am at Mach 3 and accelerating.
Many games are involved with labouring under some sort of shadow - a face of evil that intrudes into the character's lives.

No matter how dark the night, somehow the sun rises once again and all shadows are chased away
When the characters succeed, victory is like the dawn, a conquest over all that is shadowy and dark.

So join FauxCon for a convention most umbrous, of darkness and shadows to be overcome, and of mysteries to be revealed.
