Following the announcement of our first guest last week, we are further delighted to announce that the second guest for Conpulsion 2021 will be Brian Tyrrell from Dungeons on a Dime!

Brian Tyrrell is a writer, illustrator, and game designer who is the Art Director for Dungeons on a Dime, a publishing imprint that supports independent game creators and strives to make the hobby of tabletop role-playing more accessible. Brian has illustrated and written the eponymous zine titled Dungeons on a Dime. He has recently published In the Red, a book of adventures and advice to support new and experienced GMs alike. He has also designed a rules-light game called Adventures on a Dime, as well as a fortune-telling RPG called Vice and Virtue. His current project is Scurry, a system for 1-2 hour adventures as tiny beasts in a massive forest, long abandoned by humans. This is set in the world of Beast Fables, a live show Brian runs with his friends for Roll20.

Scurry‘s kickstarter will run between 15 and 28 February, and you can find more information on it, as well as how to support it, on the project’s Kickstarter page.

Brian will be joining us at Conpulsion for an interview, followed by a Q&A with a virtual audience, where we hope to discuss Dungeons on a Dime, the zine and the imprint, In the Red, as well as Scurry.

Watch this space for further announcements, including other events, the charity auction, and the full schedule for the Con, once they are confirmed!

The Conpulsion organisers are especially thrilled that two of our guests this year are independent designers with new and unique games in the works. We look forward to what Luke and Brian have to bring to our event, as well as what new and innovative stories we can tell with their games.

You can buy tickets via Helm. Conpulsion 2021 will be held on-line between 9 and 11 April. We hope to ‘see’ you there!
