SpellStorm 2012 – Toronto’s Gaming Convention Feb 24-26

by Ameron (Derek Myers) on February 10, 2012

In just two short weeks gamers from all around the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) will get together to participate in the 4th annual SpellStorm gaming convention.

D&D will be well represented with tables offering Living Forgotten Realms (LFR) and Lair Assault. However, there will also be plenty of tables running a wide assortment of other games including Pathfinder organized play, old school games, board games and collectible card games.

Some of the Friendly Local Gaming Shops (FLGS) in the GTA have generously donated prizes. All attendees will have a chance to win prizes and giveaways throughout the weekend.

There are two adventures I’m particularly looking forward to at SpellStorm 2012.

  • The latest Battle Interactive, ADCP3-1 Swarm of Chaos, takes place all day Sunday. This two-round continuous-play LFR Battle Interactive is for character of both the Heroic and Paragon tiers (levels 1-20). It will likely take about 8-10 hours of play time to complete and is touted as being a combat-intensive adventure.
  • I will be running the new Lair Assault: Talon on Umberlee on Friday and Saturday. Bring your fully optimized level 8 PC with you and get ready to face one of the most difficult and challenging D&D adventures Wizards of the Coast has ever published for 4e.

No matter what you’re playing at SpellStorm, don’t forget to bring your own character of appropriate level for your game. Pre-generated characters will not be provided, but you’re welcome to make a new character on site once you arrive.

Visit the Spellstorm (Warhorn) website to register for events today.

Jealous. But previous commitments prevent me from attending. Everyone have a good time.

Thanks for drawing attention to this, I’ve been looking for a local gaming convention since Pandemonium stopped.
They don’t have that much info on their website – do you know if it’s just the scheduled games or are there other events (like dealers’ room or seminars)?

This season of Lair Assault provides an excellent excuse for DMs to dress/talk like pirates… ;-D

I have been when I run this lolz.

@Victor Von Dave I don’t speak on behalf of the organizers, although I am friends with them and have assisted them in previous years. We’re still a relatively small Con, but the venue itself offers space and potential to grow considerably. That being said, I don’t believe they will be offering a dealers’ room or seminars this year. We’re hoping that if we get enough core gamers in attendance that we could reach out to retailers and such, and have a bigger draw in the years to come.
