Lions and Leopards is a medieval gaming event that will be held at Hurricon 2016, September 22nd-25th. It will include a variety of games played using a number of platforms (RPG, miniatures, etc…) that share a common, over-arching story line set during the Hundred Years War. Each game will help the story unfold by adding to the setting, expanding upon a sub-plot or directly affecting the story’s course. As the event progresses the actions of the players will determine the fate of the main characters and, ultimately, which faction will emerge victorious.
You may be wondering….
Do I have to participate in the entire event?
Absolutely not! Each game in the series will be a stand on its own and provide the participants a complete gaming experience. The results of the game will be consolidated into the overall story in much the same way as a “choose your own adventure” style book works. On Sunday of the convention we will be hosting a presentation to give players a look at the story in it’s entirety as well as a peek behind the scenes.
What is Hurricon?
Hurricon is a convention hosted by the Historical Miniature Gaming Society’s South Chapter (HMGS-S) and features some of the best gaming in Central Florida. While the show is grounded in historical miniatures gaming there are games across every genre and format.
How do I sign up for the event?
Game registration will be done via the convention staff. They usually open up general registration 1-2 months after their Spring convention, Recon (APR 28- MAY1) and will post a Preliminary Event Listing (PEL) after GM’s begin submitting their games. To receive updates follow the HMGS-S Facebook page and/or join the HMGS-S Yahoo! Group.
