ONLINE SCHEDULES AND TICKETS
JANUARY 27th, 2020

Since registration is live and events are starting to fill up, we thought it would be a good time to talk about schedules and tickets. For Role Call 3, we will no longer be providing printed tickets or schedules. To help attendees view their schedules and find available events, we have created a “Schedule” page at rolecallcon.com that contains links to the relevant information on the Role Call TableTop.Events website. This information can be viewed from any device with internet access.

Note: To view your schedule and event tickets, you will need to log in using your personal credentials when redirected to the TableTop.Events website.

As always, if you have any questions, just drop us a line at rolecallcon@swordfin.com.

ROLE CALL 2020 EVENTS
DECEMBER 24th, 2019

Merry Christmas! The full event schedule is now online for Role Call 2020. You can access it by following the link below.


Registration for the convention will open January 4, 2020 at 11:00 AM Central time. When it does, you will be able to purchase your badge and select your events at the same time, making multiple checkouts unnecessary. Keep in mind, just buying a badge does not guarantee you event tickets. You still need to sign up for events. Event tickets will be claimed on a first-come, first-served basis. As always, to make sure you get the events you want, it is a good idea to register and select your events early!

That’s it for now. If you have any questions, just drop us a line at rolecallcon@swordfin.com.

ROLE CALL RETURNS!
OCTOBER 28th, 2019

It was a bit of wild year for the Adventurers League. The Season 8 changes made to the organized play program in late 2018 were controversial to say the least, and while we managed Role Call 2 under these new rules, the proposed “Seasonality” rules that came out in mid 2019 left us wondering if we would be able to provide an Adventurers League experience comparable to what we had offered in the past. Fortunately, the Adventurers League Administrators worked diligently with Wizards of the Coast to revamp these changes. While the rules for Season 9 may not be perfect, we consider them a vast improvement, and we feel they will allow us to put on a great convention in 2020. As such, we are pleased to announce that Role Call 3 will be April 17th, 18th, and 19th of 2020. The convention will once again be held at the Leighton Evatt American Legion Post in Collinsville, Illinois.

While the Season 9 rules have made things easier on the players, the changes imposed to the Convention Created Content (CCC) process in Season 8 made it more difficult for conventions to create the adventures they want. Because of this, we will not have any AL adventures in 2020 that are specifically written for Role Call. That said, we will still have a great selection of adventures to offer from other conventions, a D&D special, and (provided we get approval) a D&D Epic.

In addition, we will be working with the American Legion’s kitchen to offer counter-ready food for lunch on Saturday (the fish fry will still be on Friday night). This will likely be in the form of hot dogs and chips or something similar. The goal is to offer food that you can walk in and purchase without waiting. Last year, we simply had too many orders for the kitchen to deliver its food during our 1-hour lunch break, which caused problems with incorrect orders and late food delivery. We can’t make any promises, but our goal for 2020 is to simplify Saturday’s lunch, both for the American Legion kitchen and our attendees.

That’s it for now. Expect more information between now and the end of the year, and if you have any questions, just drop us a line at rolecallcon@swordfin.com.
