Disney, yes, but starring an amazing cast which includes not only the Eighth Doctor (Paul McGann), but Gabrielle Anwar and most importantly of all Tim Curry!
I've heard a lot of people tell me in recent days that they think ConTessa is a great idea, and that they want to see it continue. If I had an event for everyone who said that, the con would be overflowing with games and panels, and I wouldn't be questioning the sanity of running a third ConTessa.
Unfortunately, that hasn't happened. We're an entire 10 events short of our total for last year, and that's counting two events that haven't even finished the approval process. If their owner doesn't finish them, we'll be a full dozen events down from last year.
Naturally, I'm disappointed as I was looking for some growth, and I'm currently deeply conflicted about the future of ConTessa. Three direct staff members and a host of others have generously been donating their time for the past six months in order to make this happen. If ConTessa isn't reaching its target audience, or if that audience doesn't exist, I can not in good conscience continue to take those people's time when they could be using it to work on their own projects.
Now, here's where you can help...
The link below is a list to all of our events on Tavern Keeper. There are a few that don't have any players. Sign up for them. Play in them. I realize there are other things going on in the plusses this weekend, but if you really and truly care about ConTessa and want it to continue, please show me through attendance.
