Kapcon and The End of The World

Conan McKegg

Soothsayers and street hawkers have been saying that the "End is Nigh" for millennia.

But today... in this city... at this convention...

The world as we know it will end.

But the method of our destruction is still uncertain. Clouds gather heavy in the sky. Is it a storm brought about by bizarre celestial activity that will rain a corrupting virus down upon Wellington? A portent of the return of ancient gods? Or the first sign of an approaching invasion fleet?

Who can tell?

Kapcon and The End of the World is an apocalyptic adventure where the player's will be playing fictitious versions of themselves as they face zombies, aliens, gods, or the vengeance of nature gone mad. The only tools you have are what you have with you in the room. The fate of humanity and civilisation may be in your hands. Or it may simply be a case of survival against forces beyond your control.

NOTE: If you are not comfortable playing an apocalyptic game with a fictional version of yourself but still want to play in this scenario it's okay to create your own fictional character. The game is more engaging if you're playing a version of yourself, but it is not a requirement.
