SimuCon

Jump to: navigation, search

SimuCon is the annual Simutronics convention held in St. Louis, Missouri.

The first SimuCon was in 1990, several years prior to DragonRealms' creation, and it was actually called GemCon (for Simutronics biggest game of the time GemStone).

The next SimuCon was in 1997 and was called SimuCon II. After that all SimuCons were named by the year they were held from SimuCon '98 through SimuCon 2007, though no SimuCon was held in 2006.

In 1999 a large number of players, led by GameMaster Treveri, started a player-run DragonRealms convention in Las Vegas called VegasCon. The first VegasCon was coincidentally scheduled the same weekend as a similar GemStone meeting in Las Vegas. After 1999 all VegasCons have been planned with both DragonRealms and GemStone at the same location.
