Raleigh, North Carolina, September 21st, 2017 – Have you ever wanted to play in your favorite author’s mind for just a bit? Wouldn’t it be fun to just see what it would be like to try to survive when they’re in control? Well now you have the opportunity since we’ve talked Larry Corriea into Gamemastering at HonorCon 2017 for charity! Given that his favored genre is a hard mix of high end weaponry coupled with zombies, vampires and other critters that go bump in the night, the experience promises to be pretty challenging.

So come join Larry Correia, author of the Monster Hunter International series, as he GMs a special one night role playing game session for the upcoming Savage Worlds Monster Hunter game. Welcome MHI graduating newbie class of 2017. Evil looms. Cowboy up. Kill it. Get paid. Open for up to six players. Game session should last about four or five hours. You do not need to know Savage Worlds rules and can learn them as you go.

The auction is located HERE or simply click the tab under programming at our website!

All proceeds go to this year’s charity: Saving Grace K9s!
