Guest of Honour

We are very excited to announce Lynne Hardy will be attending Gaelcon. Details of the panels and events she will be part of will follow.

Multi-award-winning games designer Lynne Hardy first discovered roleplaying games at university. Over the last few decades, she has worked for Nightfall Games, Pelgrane Press, Cubicle Seven, Modiphius, and Green Ronin—amongst numerous others—as a writer, editor, or both. She also created her own steampunk pulp adventure game: Cogs, Cakes & Swordsticks. More recently, she formed part of the team responsible for updating Chaosium’s legendary Masks of Nyarlathotep campaign. She now works full-time for the Chaosium as Associate Editor for the Call of Cthulhu RPG and Line Editor for the ENnie award-winning Rivers of London: the Roleplaying Game.

RPG and LARP scenario submissions are now closed for 2023 so that we can get everything in place for our attendees.
