    “The Swansea Comic and Gaming Convention is an independently run, not-for-profit convention which focuses on comics, cosplay and all aspects of gaming (from video gaming to tabletop wargames and board games to TCGs)

    Every year 50% of each ticket sold is donated to our charity of choice. Our previous events have raised over £9000 for Maggie’s Cancer Centres and Blood Bikes Wales.

    Started in 2016, SCGC strives to be a fun, family friendly event run annually in Swansea for the benefit of the geek community.

    We aim to appeal to fans of geekdom in general, both old and new, with our selection of industry-relevant guests, vendors and exhibitors. We also offer cosplay and gaming competitions, live music, and guest and community led panels throughout the day.”

    Guest Announcements

    Chris Handley (ME!) is a podcaster, games designer, and games writer (and a computational chemist for his day job).

    For the last 9 years, along with Mike Andryuk, he has been one of the lead hosts of Darker Days Radio, a podcast dedicated to the White Wolf properties World of Darkness and Chronicles of Darkness, and their spin-off show Darkhammer, a show dedicated to exploring the Warhammer settings of Games Workshop.

    On Darker Days Radio they review the books, interview the creators, and also provided original ideas for players of horror roleplay games, using as their inspiration real-world folklore, myths, and urban legends in their Secret Frequency section. Darker Days Radio recently celebrated its 10th anniversary and had the honour of running a seminar at UK Games Expo back earlier in June 2019.

    Chris has also published a number of books for these horror games, through the Storyteller Vault, and was co-designer, writer, and miniatures painter for FASA Games’ Noble Armada 3rd Edition.

    Chris is a contributing writer for the futurism and pop-science magazine, CYBR, and he is now a writer for Cubicle 7’s Warhammer 40,000 roleplay game “Wrath and Glory”, and has written introductory scenarios for Vampire: the Masquerade’s recent 5th edition, with these scenarios set in Manchester.

     

    Howard David Ingham has worked as a freelance writer of games and fiction for over 15 years. Howard’s got over 45 credits for White Wolf and Onyx Path (and was a key writer for Vampire: The Requiem, Promethean: The Created and Hunter: The Vigil) and has recently been writing for Green Ronin’s Modern AGE system. Their recent book We Don’t Go Back: A Watcher’s Guide to Folk Horror has been cited in at least three postgraduate theses over the last six months, is in the library of the British Film Institute and received a nomination for the 2018 Bram Stoker Awards, which is nice. Howard has been a panellist and exhibitor at every SCGC since the event began in 2016 and is really looking forward to taking part again

    Matthew has been creating videos about tabletop RPGs for a decade and has been writing RPGs for five or so years, spanning genres from fantasy to historical, and horror to contemporary mystery.

    As well as being a frequent contributor to game lines such as Vampire: The Masquerade, Matthew conceptualised and recently developed They Came from Beneath the Sea!, a sci-fi game set before the backdrop of 1950s B-movies. This game by Onyx Path Publishing reached 200% of its funding target on Kickstarter and was backed by over 900 individuals.

    Matthew is a video game content designer and voiceover artist, having worked most recently for Paradox Interactive on an as-yet unannounced project.

    As a two-time Origins Award Winner (Fan Favorite RPG of the Year 2019 and Best Roleplaying Game of the Year 2019, both for Vampire: The Masquerade Fifth Edition), Matthew is happy to be leaving his mark on the gaming industry.
