A rampaging gamemaster, relentless hordes of first-level characters facing certain death.... and show-stopping musical numbers! Tracy Hickman, Laura Curtis and the usual crew take on all comers in an all-new, xtreme version of their classic, wacky, no-holds-barred role playing game. Come and vie to play onstage with surprise guest stars or sit back and join in the audience participation. A hilarious GenCon tradition!

I want to come on stage and watch my character die with the best:

While we cannot guarantee that everyone who wishes to play onstage will have the opportunity to do so, we will do our best to accomodate you.
Participants who wish to grab a character sheet and play with us on stage should be aware of the following:

  • GET A TICKET FROM GENCON FOR THE EVENT:
    Those with tickets will be seated FIRST.
    But even if you HAVE a ticket you should...
  • COME EARLY: Seating is on a first come, first served basis and the closer you are to the front, the better your chances of being selected.
  • YOU MIGHT GET MISSED: Selection is entirely at the discression of the Gamemasters and the Killer Breakfast Crew. It is often based on the priorities of the game's flow over other priorities.
  • WE'RE HERE TO HAVE FUN: Come in the spirit of a good time. You don't have to watch your character die with grace ... but you DO have to watch your character die!

I don't want to be on stage ... can I just watch?

Our audience is the best in all of Gencon! You don't have to play to have a riotously good time. Come sing the songs, shout out the cheers and laugh until your sides hurt ... all from the comfort of your audience chair.
