(I'll be posting semi-regular reports here as games and seating changes. Yes, it's only August, but now you worn't be caught by surprise will you. ) :-)

MonkeyCon One is a virtual convention for roleplaying games. It is a celebration of the
Monkeys Took My Jetpack podcast and homage to what they and the GutterSkypes have
done for role playing games via Skype.

As of the time of this writing, MonkeyCon One will be held as a two day event on
October 19th and 20th, 2012. The event is ticketless and free. You'll need to sign up
to attend activities such as games in one of the six time slots.

All activity times are listed as US Central time.

    I don't know how to put this, but I don't actually want to play any of those games. No Fiasco? No Primetime?

    I see Microscope was scheduled but the cancelled. This makes me sad.

    Um... how do I see what's actually available without getting ticketed?

    Well, there are no tickets and everything is free as in free beer. You should be able to sign up and either create new activities in the previous mentioned slots or join an existing activity. Monkey Con is essentially a good excuse to get together with friends and strangers to play favorites or something new. Need to do a play test session with new people? Make a pitch and create an activity.

    I encourage people to record if everyone is OK with that and share it. Last year we have people from five different actual play podcasts present. [Yes, MonkeyCon is counting from zero.]
