The Killer Breakfast Conspiracy:

What is it and why?

A rampaging gamemaster, relentless hordes of first-level characters facing certain death against monsters that will kill them on an initiative roll alone ... and show-stopping musical numbers!

                Welcome to Killer Breakfast! Tracy and Laura Hickman – fantasy novelist and the designers of classic Dungeons & Dragons adventures (“Ravenloft” and “Dragonlance”) – joined by their usual crew take on all comers in an all-new, extreme version of their classic, wacky, no-holds-barred role playing game ... and THIS year we’re letting you play in the game with surprise guest stars!

                The rules are simple: you join seven other players on stage armed only with your pathetic, pre-generated first level character sheet against the worst Game Master you’ve ever faced. Your weakling warrior, meek magic-user or all-thumbs thief immediately faces outrageous situations that spell CERTAIN DEATH.

Only three things will save you: if you do something extremely brave, or something extremely stupid – usually the same thing – or you do something extremely entertaining! As long as you keep the Killer Dungeon Master happy, you’ll live for another round! The moment you’re death is more entertaining than you are – your character dies – and you are immediately replaced by the next player in line.

                But wait! There’s more! Musical numbers, karaoke sing-a-longs, crowd cheers and Laura Quest games ... all through two hours of outrageous improvisation!

                Every year, Tracy and Laura Hickman create a new, original adventure and this year they’re pulling out ALL the stops! Seating and availability will be limited. Come early to be selected to play onstage with a host of surprise guest stars or sit back and join in the audience participation. The hilarious GenCon tradition that you won’t want to miss!

Frequently Annoying Questions (FAQ):

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.
