Following our announcement last week that Conpulsion: Grimoire will be raising funds for Edinburgh Women’s Aid, we are further excited to announce prizes for our charity auction this year.

One of the prizes on offer is a chance to play in a one-shot game GMed by Johnny Chiodini from Dicebreaker!

Johnny Chiodini is a game journalist, video producer, and TRPG veteran whom you might recognise from the YouTube channel Dicebreaker, where he is the Head of Video. Johnny also GMs the Oxventure D&D series at Outside Xbox, which was one of the featured streams as part of Wizards of the Coasts’ official D&D Celebration event in September 2020. He has previously worked at Eurogamer, GameSpot, ITN, and Channel 4. He has also written his own TRPGs that are available on his page. Johnny has kindly agreed to GM a charity game, on offer at our charity auction. We are really grateful to Johnny for his support in our effort to raise money for this cause.

We announced a few weeks ago that One of Johnny’s players from Oxventure, Luke Westaway from Outside Xtra, will be a guest at the con this year. You can find more information on that here.

If you want to get a chance to play in a game with Johnny ‘literally-everyone-else-in-the-world’ Chiodini, you can try bidding for this in our Charity Auction. We will announce more details on how the charity auction will run in due course.

Why not buy tickets for the Con via Helm. Conpulsion 2021 will be held on-line between 9 and 11 April. We hope to ‘see’ you there!
