Donate to ConTessa
Acadecon is a 3-day gaming convention created by the makers of the RPG Academy Podcast. It's specifically designed to be a smaller, non-traditional convention. At Acadecon, players get access to a 24-hour gaming hall, a better chance to play in the games they want, the opportunity to spend time and game with special guests, and time to hang out with some of the best gamers in the world—the fans of our show!
At ConTessa, our goal is to change the demographic of gaming "leadership" by running tons of games and events at conventions led by people from a variety of "marginalized" demographics and attended by anyone. No matter how big or small the con, we love showing up and challenging what it looks like to be a GM. Find out more about us on our 'About' page, but don't forget to come back here to submit a game for our program!
"Absolutely AMAZING. I ran Pugmire for Kids and would LOVE LOVE to do the same again." -Sarah E.
"I had a blast running games for ConTessa last year at Gencon 2016!! I decided to do it because I wanted to be apart of something so special and pro women. Being a female GM and being surrounded by a whole room of other amazing women who support what I do and who I am was a fantastic experience!! I can't wait to do it again this year for the special 50th GenCon!!!" -Emily D.
