SYDCON is a role-playing convention run by the Sydney Roleplaying Games Association. It runs each year in October in Sydney.
Sydcon is a chance for both new and experienced role-players to play games prepared by our friendly team of volunteer gamemasters. The SYDCON convention originally started out small, but has grown to become one of the friendliest role-playing conventions in Australia.
New to role-playing? Never been to a role-playing convention before? Go to our Info page for answers and more detailed information.
A variety of game genres are available, including regular table-top games (such as Dungeons and Dragons), ongoing campaigns, and free-forms (sometimes known as live-action games or LARPs).
Players may sign up individually or in teams of around five, although there is room for smaller or larger groups. As well as role-playing, other types of games will also be on offer, including board games, miniature wargames, and collectible card games. See our games page for what's on offer this year.
