Role-Playing Games (RPG) have long since been an integral part of the Science-Fiction and Fantasy culture. One of the many facets that RPG can take is what is known as Pen & Paper RPG where players sit around a table and embark on an adventure narrated and guided by a Game Master. The tools on this journey are their trusty dice, their character on a sheet of paper, a pen to make notes, and their imagination.
We at LuxCon would like to honour the longstanding tradition behind Pen & Paper RPGs by giving you, our visitors, the opportunity to participate in Pen & Paper sessions held by senior Game Masters. They will lead you on this journey that takes place in one of many different worlds, be it the Sword & Sorcery setting of Dungeons and Dragons, the vastness of space or the surface of a distant planet in Warhammer 40k, the belly of an international Megacorporation in Shadowrun, or the dark recesses of a long abandoned mansion while you are following the Call of Cthulhu.
To offer all our guests the opportunity to experience the joy and excitement of Pen & Paper RPG, we have reacted to some of your feedback from last year and am glad we can offer you sessions in French, English, German, and Luxembourgish. Consult the table above to find what languages may be spoken in each session. Languages in parenthesis are understood but might not necessarily be your game master’s choice to hold the session in. To be safe, just check with them; usually everything will work out just fine!

Fiasco (Colonials) hosted by Morgan Shaw
Colonials takes place in a universe with greedy megacorps, retro futuristic sci-fi, and of course unstoppable alien killing machines. Rather than playing scientists, explorers, and badasses who discover a colony after it has been destroyed you will be playing the sorry bastards who cause everything to go pear-shaped to begin with.
Fiasko (The Depot) hosted by Gwen
Snow. Neck deep and everywhere. Far as the eye can see. It doesn’t look to be letting up any time soon and here you are in the middle of it, stuck, countless miles from where you want to be and going nowhere fast. You were fortunate enough to find shelter from the blizzard in a backwoods bus depot.
Unfortunately, now you find yourself caught in an interstitial moment, caught on the threshold between a past you’re trying to get away from and the future you so desperately hope to achieve. What happens to you during these trapped moments, as the time ticks away like snowflakes caught in a storm?
Fiasko (First Contact) hosted by Jérôme Decker
The signal arrived and shook the world. Proof of extraterrestrial intelligence! It was a simple code, easily deciphered and translated.
WE ACKNOWLEDGE AND CONGRATULATE YOU.
MEET US AT PARADISE.
This was followed by coordinates to a previously unknown iceball of a world in the backwaters of the Solar System. Now the Interplanetary Exploration Vehicle Carl Sagan is making its final approach to a distant planetoid named Paradise. The Sagan’s main computer, the hyperintelligent nervous system for the mission, has been making mistakes lately. After the boredom and repetition of a long journey, and turning over in their minds the endless possibilities of what they might soon discover, some of the crew are about to crack.
It’s the most important day in history. Humankind balances on the edge of cosmic enlightenment and oblivion.
Dread hosted by Jérôme Decker
The sleepover was to be the greatest moment of your childhood, until the whimpering woke you up. Is this even the right house?
Shadowrun hosted by Francis Jose
Francis – who goes by the name Canis – has been a devoted and avid fan of Shadowrun since 2000, and has been an agent of the Catalyst Demo Team for many years. You may also recognise his name from the proofing credits of some of the Shadowrun 5th Edition books printed in English. LuxCon is Francis’ first Shadowrun event on continental Europe but he’s been across to the USA for shows. Francis is pleased to help new and old players enjoy this latest edition of Shadowrun, and to bring the Shadowrun Missions living campaign to LuxCon.
Shadowrun Missions (SRM) is the official dynamic sixth world campaign setting sponsored by Catalyst Game Labs. In SRM, players create a character and participate in sanctioned events throughout the world. This gives players the unique opportunity to play a Shadowrun character of their own design with different people and different perspectives, and affect the storyline of the campaign. The current Missions campaign takes place in the Windy City: Chicago and is comprised of four seasons (5-8). Each season is comprised of six Shadowrun Missions adventures.
You can bring your own character as long as it adheres to the rules outlined in the FAQ linked below. You can also find additional information on the missions there!
