Melbourne's cheapest gaming convention

Union House, Melbourne University

Coming again October 1998

Welcome to Unicon!

This year, the roleplaying clubs of Melbourne and Monash Universities have combined to present thirteen roleplaying tournaments and seven freeforms.  This booklet provides information about Unicon, and contains all that you need to register for the convention.

Unicon is to be held at the University of Melbourne, Parkville, from Friday October 3rd until Sunday October 5th.  Players can register at any time during the convention, or preferably, by pre-registration prior to the convention.

Tournaments are run in 2½ hour sessions, which are scheduled to start 3 hours apart.  Sessions start at 11 a.m., 2 p.m., 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. There are three sessions on Friday, four on Saturday, and two on Sunday. See the enclosed entry form for more details.

Entry and registration

Players can register at any time during the convention, or preferably, by pre-registration before the convention.
Everyone must register with the convention before they can enter any of the tournaments. Unicon is Melbourne's cheapest gaming convention. Convention registration is only $7 and tournaments cost $2 per session. All player who pre-register before September 5 get one free session of their choice. All pre-convention entries should be posted to:

Unicon,
P.O. Box 47,
Union House,
University of Melbourne,
Parkville, Vic., 3052.

Cheques should be made out to Capricon . That's right: Capricon ; the bank account hasn't been changed from last year. Please do not send cash through the post.

Although entry to tournaments is filled on a "first come, first served" basis, every effort will be made both before and during the convention to help you play what you'd like to play when you'd like to play it. While team entry is preferred, individuals who enter team events will be grouped together into teams to the best ability of the tournament convention organisers.
