I meant to put this up earlier but totally forgot. I’m not coming to Ropecon this year and thus there will be no photos or stories to share. At least from me. Since I have annually been one of the first photographers to post pictures I thought it would be decent to make this public.
In any case I hope you all have great time at Ropecon and get to play a lot of games!
Palasin juuri lomalta Kanadasta, joten en ole tätä ehtinyt tehdä, enkä ole itse asiassa tänä vuonna osallistumassakaan (ainakaan tällä tietoa), joten en ole hirveästi asiaa tutkinut, mutta en halunnut jättää tätä tekemättä (ja tätä itse asiassa vähän kyseltiinkin), joten tässä on: Tämän vuoden Ropecon-pöytäropesuositukset.
If you ever went to Ropecon in Dipoli you know that the place is hard to forget, with its architecture of stone, glass, light wood, dark metal, and its hostility to straight angles. It offered a milieu for roleplaying (and other things) that felt home-made, welcoming, and original, but still professional enough. It wasn’t perfect and like everything that’s dear, you both loved and hated parts of it. The sucky bits were parts of the charm, so much so that I can’t even bear to write anything stronger than “sucky bits”.
Again, there was a short-form scenario contest at Ropecon. I managed to play in six of them, including all three that received a prize. I gave some feedback to the designers on individual games, but now that I can see the bigger picture, I’d like to point on some commonalities and offer critique that I hope will lead to more fun for everyone in the future.

This year’s Ropecon starts tomorrow. This means a weekend of gaming, making new friends (and enemies) and a lot of weird events. This year might be even weirder since nobody knows how the new location will work out. Will it be so good that Ropecon enters a new renessaince or will it fall to chaos? We’ll just have to witness it ME!
This is a new location for the organizers as well; ask them about what you want to know but let them make mistakes.
Try a game you haven’t tried before. This is the main reason I go to Ropecon. It is an excellent chance to have a go with a new system or game.
At least consider larping. It isn’t for all but it is certainly something every should at least try.
Make the most of it! Ropecon is only once a year!

Lastly I would like to (once again) remind you that if you need a photographer for your games or cosplay (etc.) don’t hesitate to find me or contact me. My time tables are flexible and if I’m not at the middle of a game I’m more than willing to take even more photos.
That time of the year, although at this point, I’m actually pretty late with this post. I’ve been busy despite being unemployed (actually time management seems to be a skill I quickly forgot), so I’m doing this pretty much at the last possible hour.
This year’s Ropecon is getting closer and closer. And with it our speculations about the whole shenanigan grow wilder and wilder. For Ropecon has found a new location at Messukeskus Helsinki Expo and Convention Centre and older visitors that have grown accustomed to Dipoli will have to brave the wilds and dare to enter this new environment.
It will be interesting to see how the change of scenery affects the whole experience. I really liked the outdoor possibilities around Dipoli but I’m also willing to give Messukeskus a chance. It’s most likely be an experience heavily influenced with the chaos and order theme. Some people know what is going on and they’ll have to work really hard to establish order.
