Last weekend at TempleCon 2015, Dark Age held their first March To Immortality tourney of the year. March To Immortality is the championship series qualifiers for the finals at Gen Con. The event at TempleCon is one of the largest MTIs, with 31 players. Here’s a short recap of what the event was like:
Those of you looking forward to the new Dark Age: Outcasts releases but bummed they were hitting first at TempleCon 2015 should turn those frowns upside down. CMON has announced that all the goodies on sale at TempleCon will be available on the Dark Age store at the same time! The sale is live today, Thursday, February 5, to Sunday, February 8.

Dark Age fans attending TempleCon 2015 will be among the first to get their hands on the new Dark Age: Outcasts book and figures! Outcasts marks a new direction in CMON’s release format for Dark Age. Originally, a new book was put out yearly at GenCon, but now players can expect to see a new book every six months. This format allows regular expansion of the Dark Age universe through new armies, new rules, and new fiction.
Check after the break for more Outcasts information and a trailer from the team behind Dark Age: Outcasts:
Geek Nation Tours is now booking for their Templecon 2015 tour.
From the announcement:
Geek Nation Tours is proud to announce we are headed out to Providence, Rhode Island for none other than TempleCon! And do they have Punk! No no! Not Punk Music silly – Cyberpunk, Steampunk, Biopunk, Post-Apocalyptic Punk, Neo-Victorian Punk, Dieselpunk, DecoPunk and even Ray Gun Gothic! But since you mentioned music – TempleCon gives you that too. With nightly entertainment, cool seminars, and tonnes of gaming. Yes gaming – you will find loads of stuff for gamers of all stripes – from Boardgames (did we mention the library of free to play board games?) and Role Playing Games to Collectible Card Games and Living Card Games to Tabletop Miniature Wargames. As matter of fact TempleCon has long been known as a mecca to fans of Privateer Press’ Warmachine and Hordes games. It doesn’t end there – add a bit of Vintage Arcade Nostalgia with over 40 retro arcade games all on free play as well as daily high score awards for any high score set on any machine (reset daily), Cosplay (complete with a super cool contest that you will not want to miss) and an element of Cthulhu and you have the humongous non-stop celebration of gaming at it’s finest, that is TempleCon!
Lost Hemisphere posts about their successful fundraiser event they have every year at Templecon.
From the post:
Every year at Templecon the Lost Hemisphere crew coordinate a charity fundraiser. For Templecon 2014 they teamed up with the New England Privateers to benefit Colon Cancer research, all funds received being donated to the Dana Farber Institure.
Thanks to prize donations from Dragon Forge Design, KR Multicase, Advanced Deployment, Tectonic Craft Studios, The Temple Games, and more across the community, over four thousand dollars was raised.
Frankly, the gamer community at Templecon is bloody awesome.
Crystal Brush had a qualifier over last weekend at Templecon. Well, they’ve posted up the photos of the winners.
Full gallery here.
Comparatively, my models look like I painted them with a paintball marker from 100yds away.
From the post:
We had a wonderful turnout at this year’s TempleCon! We’re pleased to announce that the overall winner form TempleCon 2014 is Guillaume “Yaum” Juneau’s Mountain King! As a winner Yaum has earned a trip to Adepticon 2015! We can’t wait to see what he has to bring! Check out the other winning miniatures here!

If you going to the convention or are in the area stop by and enter because the tournament is free. Or just stop by and watch and check out the games. It’s a good time to Get in the Fight!
Dark Age Games will be in RI this weekend for Templecon. Stop by and say, “Hello” to Murdis and Mr. Black. Give them both hugs. Tell them I sent you. It’ll be great.
From them to you:
We’ll be storming Templecon 2014!!
We have near non-stop events running all through Templecon, dear players! Stop in and see myself, Mr. Black, or pick up one of our NEW starterboxes, available here FIRST.
… …I also have some other nice surprises for those who come by, but I’ll be keeping those a secret for now…
We have two types of events running this year:
1. Rumble in the Wasteland
This event is for new players or players wishing to learn newer armies. Basically show up and you’ll play a mini-tournament, each round playing a new 300 Pt army. A great way to learn the game or discover new armies!
2. The March to Immortality
500 Points, players, this is one of your first chances to earn your spot at Immortals 2014- and if we hit 24 the winners gets a round-trip plane ticket to Gencon! Participation prizes will be given out as well.
Hope to see you all there, players!!
Lost Hemisphere gives us an update about how their Templecon 2014 Charity fundraising is going.
From the update:
Of particular note is Lost Hemisphere’s teaming with Mike Pondsmith of R.Talsorian Games; on the prize table for the charity raffle will be six exclusive tickets for seats at Sunday’s Bladerunner setting Cyberpunk RPG session run by Mr Pondsmith himself.
Lost Hemisphere has posted up some details about this year’s TempleCon Charity Raffle. It’s all for a good cause, so go check it out.
From the details:
Over the past several Templecons, Lost Hemisphere has coordinated several charity fundraisers. Through the generosity of Templecon’s gaming community we have raised thousands of dollars that have gone on to provide relief for those impacted by devastating floods, respite for victims of Alzheimer’s and their families, and to aid in research and care for children suffering from mental illness. Not wanting to deprive Templecon’s amazingly generous gaming community of another opportunity to help those in need, we’re proud to announce that, thanks to a collaboration with the NE Privateers, the tradition will continue at Templecon 2014.
CoolMiniOrNot put up a photo gallery of stuff they’ve (we’ve) got going on over at TempleCon.
TempleCon is happening this weekend (for those few that didn’t know) and while I’m not there, personally, I do have multiple field operatives on-site who will be assisting with reports from such events as the big Dark Age tourneys and Privateer Press’ Keynote address.

Lost Hemisphere posts Episode 45, about TempleCon 2012.
From their announcement:
As we move into the last few days before Christmas, right before the kids are all out of school to bug their parents for the holidays, snow for those up North and of course, balmy summer days for those Down Under, I’m reminded of one thing… Templecon’s just around the corner! Time to stop being all wishy-washy with faction preferences, time to lock in lists and cram in as much practice as you can before the Lost crew invade our adopted “home” convention.
For this episode of Lost Hemisphere Radio, our intrepid hosts brave the fury of the man known only as Hacksaw* to get the skinny on the tournament formats at Templecon, a rundown of what sort of goodies await those who participate, and to generally natter with one of the driving forces behind Steamroller 2012. Join us for the natterings by tracking us down on iTunes (leave us a review!).
