Tell them you're with Venger Con. $129 per night + tax. The reserved block of rooms for Venger Con won't be in the hotel's system for another week or two.

Venger Con is all about... old school, OSR, and traditional roleplaying games!

In addition to actual games, there will be workshops focusing on Game Mastering, playing, as well as adventure writing and publishing.

Our convention (sponsored by Venger's old-school gaming blog) will not be using any kind of x-cards, checklists, or "safety tools" for children since this is an 18+ event (unless chaperoned by a parent or guardian, but please ask me first). If the GM has prepared controversial, provocative, or edgy content, simply state that along with the event description. Additionally, we ask that politics be left at the door. Continually disruptive, harassing, or antagonistic attendees will be asked to leave.

Dates - Friday July 22nd, Saturday July 23rd, and Sunday July 24th

Venue - The DOUBLETREE by Hilton @ 4402 East Washington Ave, Madison WI (across from East Towne Mall).

Standard attendance limited to 100 people @ $100 for the entire weekend.
