Latest News February 8th, 2019

OPEN signups for Pathfinder and Starfinder events for 2019 are on Warhorn.  There are GM slots still available and we always ask that you take just one.  You will want to GM this year.  Just saying don't tell me later if you only knew.

A truly unique game convention

 

Farmageddon is an annual game convention held in Farmer City, Illinois at the American Legion.  We feature an atmosphere that is more like a game night with friends than a typical con.  We have a full kitchen and full bar on site with a relaxed atmosphere that we strive to keep from being too crowded so you can hear the GM and have a chance to get to know everybody.


Our event lineup consists of Pathfinder Society, Starfinder Society, and D&D Adventurers League..

Supporting our youth

 

 

 We donate all proceeds to the local scouting organizations.  Scouting is a great way to develop character, leadership, confidence, and practical skills in our youth.  Funds from Farmageddon help provide those opportunities in many ways from camp and membership fees to food budgets and awards.  This is the genesis and primary motivation for the event.

Band of Brothers

 

 Farmageddon is hosted by the Knights of the Octagon, a local gaming group that has been active for about 13 years with player experience going back 40 years. Many of the players have been active in the local scouting organization for years.  We're gamers like you, but first of all we're proud moms and dads.

Our Process

All of our events will be posted on Warhorn.net for registration and sign-ups.  Events will be posted first just for GM acquisition, then after Winter War, player sign-ups.  


Fees are by day.  $10 for Friday only, $15 for Saturday only, and $10 for Sunday only, or $25 for the whole weekend.  We don't do GM credits, we do GM gifts.  As the organizer, I pay my $25 for the weekend whether I play or not.  It's for the kids.

Facilities

Farmer City is located between Bloomington-Normal and Champaign-Urbana at the crossroads of Interstate 74, US 150, & Rt 54.


The American Legion features a full kitchen where we take pride in offering a variety of different homemade food.  The Legion's full bar has a great selection of beverages, including adult beverages at small town prices.


There is free WiFi and an ATM on the premises for food and con purchases.

There are two hotels close by

Days Inn, 975 E Clinton Ave, Farmer City.      3 min. travel     309-928-9434


Holiday Inn Express, 705 S. Persimmons Court, Leroy  10 min. travel  309-962-4439


The Holiday is newer.  Costs a little more, but there haven't been any complaints about it.

Conduct

Since there is a licensed bar at the Legion, NO OUTSIDE ALCOHOL IS ALLOWED.  They will enforce who is served and who isn't.


Again, our atmosphere is game night with your friends.  So don't do anything you wouldn't do at your friend's house.  Well, this is a public space, do better.  


Please no loud swearing, violence, bigotry, or otherwise obnoxious behavior.  And we obviously do take pictures and sometimes post them on this site and Facebook.  We don't edit so don't embarrass your mother.

Drink Specials

The Legion bartenders go the extra mile, with drink specials like Dragon's Blood and Goblin Juice.  Also, all other drinks are small town priced.
