Role Playing Game Events


Free for all convention attendees!

The Tesla II cockpits, featuring the BattleTech: Firestorm software, are fully enclosed military style simulators that feature 7 screens, over 90 control systems, and a 12 speaker surround sound system. When seated in the cockpit or 'pod', the player will pilot his or her own walking tank known as a BattleMech onto the virtual landscape to compete with those seated in the other cockpits for battlefield superiority.

Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator

Artemis simulates a spaceship bridge by networking several computers together. One computer runs the simulation and the "main screen", while the others serve as workstations for the normal jobs a bridge officer might do, like Helm, Communication, Engineering, and Weapon Control. Artemis is a social game where several players are together in one room ("bridge") , and while they all work together, one player plays the Captain, a person who sits in the middle, doesn't have a workstation, and tells everyone what to do.

Charity Auction

Kalamazoo Loaves and Fishes is our charity for Marmalade Dog 23.

Kalamazoo Loaves and Fishes was founded to provide a central access point for emergency grocery supplies. KLF also works with others to provide prepared meal support, senior commodity programs, agency food support, food packs for children, and other community food programs. KLF is the largest charitable food distribution system in Kalamazoo County.
