Welcome to MacquarieCon 2005!

MacquarieCon is a roleplaying convention run by the Macquarie University Roleplaying Society (MURPS). It runs each year in the second weekend of December at Macquarie University.

The main purpose of the convention is for roleplayers to play prepared games in 3-hour sessions. A variety of game genres are available, including regular table-tops (such as D&D, Rolemaster, or Shadowrun), ongoing campaigns (such as those organised by the RPGA), and freeforms (live-action games).

Players generally play in teams of five, though there is room for smaller groups, and freeforms generally run with at least ten.

Other types of game may also be on offer, including board games, miniature war games, and collectible card games. See the list of games for details.
