Our next Triptych champions?


Pheno 2006 is proud to offer the following games and events. These are divided into several categories:

The schedule

Go to General, RPGA and miniatures schedules...

New Designers

Each year Pheno is proud to encourage games writers who are new to writing for Cons to have a go.

We normally hold a competition for 'Best New Designer' but as we only have one new writer this year the result is a bit foregone. New designers are marked with the mysterious New Designer Star: new designer symbol

Game ratings

Pheno uses a rating system for games to help you choose games, and to help you anticipate what the GM is looking for in a game.

Games are rated from 1 (little or none) to 5 (really important) on the following: 

The Triptych

Each year, Pheno invites three respected designers to present a systemless single session game as part of a triptych. Each game showcases what we consider the best of Pheno roleplaying: characterisation, drama, entertainment, innovation. Each game will be judged separately, but teams competing in all three games will also be eligible for the Triptych Perpetual Trophy.

Living Greyhawk

Living Kingdoms of Kalamar

LG Introductory adventures

We will have a selection of introductory adventures for people who've never played Living Greyhawk before, or who want to start a new character. As the "mix" of these adventures changes on a regular basis, we don't know right now which adventures we'll have available.

Freeforms are big games for 15–30 players (or rarely, and insanely, more...) players, whose characters are collected in some kind of social gathering in which they interact, intrigue and politic with each other.

Team (tabletop) games

Team games (or tabletops) are the traditional form of roleplaying, for groups/teams of about 5 players with generally one GM. There will be character sheets; there may be dice.

War games typically played on a 4' x 6' table with painted miniatures, modelled terrain and much camaraderie.

Special events

More fun than we can classify anywhere else.
