RPGs are a major part of each WARPCON. This past year the convention was host to 14 separate scenarios accross the weekend. These scenarios all used different systems for play including, Scion, Higher Powers and also some homebrew systems. Our hope is to continue to host as many scenarios this for the coming year. We rely on you, our attendees to create the scenarios and run them.

Submissions for this years convention will be open soon. An announcement will be made at the following link.


Wargames are your chance to control huge armies, hords of soldiers, space marines and more in giant campaigns vs other attendees. Our events for the coming convention haven't been set in stone yet, but details will be announced shortly on this site.

Details of the events will be available at the following link.


LARPs are an opportunity for you to fully act out role playing scenarios. WARPCON was host to 10 seperate LARP scenarios in 2017 from huge cataclysms sinking much of the world into the ocean, to a dramatic wrestling tournament, there was a scenario for everybody.
