Random Inc presents, a Phenomenon Labs production...
A roleplaying convention

Phenomenon 2006


Special events

The enlightened one says that all paths to enlightenment are permissable. Even the ones that don't involve roleplaying.

Mission: improv-able

The second annual event — in the style of a cheap sequel.

There will be improvised theatre throughout the convention, drawn from a number of different sources (Whose Line is it Anyway?, Theatre Sports™ and more) — all culminating in a competition on the last day. All comers welcome!

You come face to face with a tentacled monster, realising too late that you're still wearing your Sailor Moon outfit; 60 seconds ago you were advertising cold, dead fish... Who knows what the next 60 seconds will bring? Comedy! Action! Drama! You'll see it all!

Workshops, demonstration and non-competitive games and experiments in improvised storytelling will be held at select times during the convention — sign up for these at the Mission: Improv-able stall during the convention.

Last Session (#10, Monday afternoon): The Mission: Improv-able Competition.

The competition session is for teams of four; in all the other events people will be mingled.

Warhammer 40K

Ultramorph Space MarineThe grim darkness of the 41st millennium (in 28mm scale) comes to Pheno with the inaugural Warhammer 40K competition. The event, an 8 round tourney for armies of 1500 points for a maximum of 20 players, will be run in accordance with the Games Workshop National Tournament System 1. Three games will be played on days one and two, with two games on day three. Trophies will be awarded in the categories of 'Best Overall', 'Best General', 'Best Sportsman', 'Best Army' and 'Best Painted Army'.

For further information, and copies of the player's information pack for the tourney, please contact Paul Naveau on (02) 62413809 (AH) or e-mail at pnaveau <at> bigpond.net.au. At all times throughout the weekend players should remember that the tourney is about having fun, the spirit of the game (a game which, when all is said and done, is about pushing small figures around on a table top) and the opportunity to play new and challenging opponents.

Warhammer 40K costs $32 for the whole weekend.
