Here’s how you earn points:

    +5 points if all members of the team back the Kickstarter and pre-register
    +2 points for each team member who backs the Kickstarter at the CREW throuhg SENIOR OFFICER level

 I'm sure you all know we have gaming, but did you notice that we have a painting contest?

If you want to enter, you have just over three months to get ready.

This is for everyone. You don't have to be a golden demon level painter.

Entry Restrictions
The following defines the overall guidelines to entering the Draconic Awards competition. However, some of the guidelines may be adjust by the event being held.

If both Journeymen and Master Class competitions are to be held at an event, competitors can only enter into one of the competitions.

Only two entries are allowed per category.

Deadline for entries will be set on an event by event basis as time can vary depending on the event. The deadline should be set to allow judges ample time to vote on all the entries.

Scenic bases and plinths do not count towards size restrictions.
Entries that have won a placement in another publicized compeition is not eligiable for the Draconic Awards. (see below)

What does winning placement and publicized mean?
If your entries have placed in another publicized competition, it is ineligible for the Draconic Awards. Let's take a look at what this means.

A publicized competition or event means that the event entries were announced and/or shown online or in print. If you entered it into a small local game store contest and no one really knows about it, you're good. If your piece was part of a "best painted army" award type of thing from a gaming tournament you played in, you're safe as well.

Winning a placement in a comptition means you've won AGAINST someone for an award (1st, 2nd, 3rd, best of show, best of category... etc.). Merit based awards (like our coins and pins) is not considered placement as the reward was based on personal merit.

So, if you have entered another compeititon that posts their winners and entries online or in a magazine/newspaper/milk carton AND have won, say, second place in a best of category, then your entry is ineligible.

This is important! BOTH of these conditions must be met in which will make your entry ineligible. If you've entered a big competition before and didn't place, we're ok with that. If you have placed but the contest is some small local store event, we're ok with that. If you've never placed in a compeition you never attended, well, you're good to enter but if you had to ask that question, painting is the least of your worries.

General Category Definitions
Single is defined as any normal-sized mini under 54mm in any dimension (excluding extraneous features such as long weapons and banners).
Large single is any single humanoid figure 54-1/6 scale in size. This category does not include vehicles or walkers.
Squad is a themed grouping of at least 3 miniatures. Adherence to any game's force organization rules is unnecessary.
Monsters and Beast is any single monster miniature larger than 3" in any dimension.
Vehicle is defined by an object that fits as Large as well as something that can be ridden, driven, piloted, or flown.
Diorama is any scenic layout mounted on a display plaque. This can include Duels.
Other categories may be added to suit the event theme or preferences

Themed Category Definitions
When required, normally at regional or global events, some of the general categories will be grouped under themed categories. For example, there may be a science fiction category in which a Single, squad and Monster or Vehicle category will be grouped under it and in conjunction with the other theme categories in the event (Fantasy, Horror, Historical… etc.).
The Draconic Award: Homepage
Draconic Awards is a painting competition circuit for miniature painting and hobbyist around the world the improve technique and to gauge how well the fair against other painters.

we're getting down to the final few days so we thought we'd show off a bit of artwork.  Here, for your viewing pleasure, is a first look at two CaptainCon 2015 pin designs we're contemplating as backer rewards and promotional items.  We'd like to know what you think about these, so please tell us on our Facebook page.





Also, since we're down to the final days , we want to take this opportunity to remind you that now is a good time to remind all your friends about CaptainCon and to point them toward the Kickstarter.  For handy convenience, here's the link for easy cut-and-paste into emails and forum posts:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/neprivateers/captaincon-2015

Not only does it help us grow a great convention if you spread the word, but it helps your fellow gamers out too.  They get cheaper badges than the at-the-door price, they get early registration, they get other cool stuff as we unlock stretch goals, and the more people that pre-register for a particular game or game system, the more we'll expand that in future years.
As you know, backing gives you early access to event registration.  Well, here's a little something to interest all the role players out there thinking about early registration.

The Pathfinder Society of Boston will be running role playing sessions all weekend.  Below are only a few samples of the scenarios being offered.

Pathfinder Society Scenario #6–10: The Wounded Wisp [1-2]  (A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 1–2.) More than 400 years have transpired since the Pathfinder Society began in a humble tavern that has quietly weathered the centuries without incident. When a routine errand there uncovers a clue left behind by one of the founding Pathfinders, it’s up to the PCs to solve a puzzle whose pieces are scattered across Absalom—and whose prize dates back to the Society’s darkest years. "The Wounded Wisp" is an evergreen, replayable scenario designed to help introduce players to the history of the Pathfinder Society and Absalom’s greatest sites.

Pathfinder Society Quest: The Silverhex Chronicles [1] (A series of six Quests designed for 1st-level characters. )  When the daring half-orc scholar Ulisha enrages a noble family in the River Kingdoms, she contacts the PCs with a special deal: she will sell them a unique and ancient druidic relic at a steep discount to secure the gold she needs to pay off her bounty. By the time the PCs arrive to meet her, she has gone into hiding. However, she has left behind a journal full of profitable leads as a sign of good faith. Can the PCs recover this hidden wealth and claim the powerful Silverhex before an assassin finds their friend?

Pathfinder Society Scenario #6–22: Out of Anarchy [1-5] (Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 1–5.) Several years ago, rebellion in the seaside town of Pezzack resulted in a Chelish blockade to slowly starve the rioters into submission. Since then few have entered or left, trapping the increasingly desperate citizens with little with which to repair their broken homes and eke out a living. When the Society learns that an important informant still lives in the ruined town, the PCs must smuggle themselves into Pezzack, navigate the devastated urban landscape, and extract their contact—all without igniting a new rebellion and inviting Cheliax’s unfettered wrath. Content in “Out of Anarchy” contributes to the ongoing storyline of the Dark Archive and Liberty’s Edge factions.

Pathfinder Society Scenario #6–18: From Under Ice [1-5] (A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 1–5.) Rumors of an ancient settlement and its priceless treasure locked beneath Irrisen’s perpetual ice have reached the Society’s ears. The Pathfinders set out to the Land of the Linnorm Kings with a precious cargo of trade goods to buy their way into the witch-ruled nation, but even approaching Irrisen is fraught with danger. Can the PCs navigate the frozen wastes and recover the relics within, or will the icy climate claim their lives? Content in “From Under Ice” contributes directly to the Year of the Sky Key metaplot as well as the ongoing storyline of the Grand Lodge and Scarab Sages factions.

we've got some nice add-on opportunities for our supporters to celebrate.

Thanks to some additional sponsors, we've been able to move up our stretch goal a bit by offering an exclusive pin and CaptainCon dice as add-on options.  If you're backed at the OFFICER level or above, a set of dice will be included with your backer package while SR. OFFICER and CAPTAIN backers will get both the dice and the pin as part of the package.

Anyone can add dice ($5 per pair) or a pin ($5 each) to their rewards by simply following the "manage pledge" link and adding the appropriate amount to the pledge.
IMPORTANT!  You must add on to your pledge BEFORE the Kickstarter campaign ends.  We are not using an after-campaign service so there will be NO CHANCE to modify your pledge after the campaign ends.

The pin is exclusive to Kickstarter backers.  We will NOT be selling this pin through any other method or at the convention so grab yours now while you can.
