Blue Rose - On Stage!
A decade ago, Blue Rose shook up the role-playing game scene with its vision of romantic fantasy and inclusive gaming. Now the world of Aldea returns in a new edition from our spotlight publisher, Green Ronin. Come and hear the Sovereign's Finest as they protect their homeland of Aldis from threats like the shadowy Kingdom of Kern, and the fanatical Theocracy of Jarzon, as well as monsters and artifacts from the cruel reign of the Sorcerer Kings. Aided by the rhydan (their psychic animal allies), the champions of the Kingdom of the Blue Rose safeguard the light of the world against the power of shadow.
Come and watch Joseph Carriker (line developer, Blue Rose), Crystal Frasier (line developer, Mutants & Masterminds), Tanya DePass (director, Need Diverse Games, non-profit), and Wesley Schneider (editor-in- chief at Paizo Inc.) as they play this award-winning game!
Burlesque: Death Aboard the ICS Golden Thong
The captain and her crew thought it was a wonderful day to start another trip to Seti Ralpha V aboard the prestigious interstellar cruise ship, the Golden Thong. And it was, until someone got themselves murdered. If that wasn't bad enough for our intrepid captain, it threatened to blossom into a galactic scandal! Will Captain Smirk figure out who the murderer is before the quadrant erupts into war? Will Ensign Crusher ever get the respect she deserves? Will the rubber-headed alien look even remotely convincing? Will Security Officer Starbooty look good on set? Answers to these questions and more at Death Aboard the ICS Golden Thong!
Death Aboard the ICS Golden Thong is a burlesque whodunnit set upon the final frontier, an homage to every bad mystery trope, and complete with a butler droid! Morgan La May stars as Captain Smirk, Bella La Blanc as Ambassador Lube-wanna Troi, and Nikolai Knight as Security Officer Starbooty! Also staring are Sophie B. Fawkins, Candy Apples, Mandy Flame, Tawdry Quirks, Lola Moondust, Whisper De Corvo, Wicked Scarlett, and special guest star, Lilith Van Dyke!
Death Aboard the ICS Golden Thong is for Norwescon members 18 years of age and older, Friday, March 30, in Grand 2 and Grand 3! Doors will open at 9:00 pm.

Keith & Alan's Movie News & Previews are Seeing Double!
Back for their 12th year Alan Halfhill and partner Keith Johnson, are delighted to bring their unique brand of movie previews and news to Norwescon. They commit countless hours of behind-the-scenes toil to bring you the latest movie news, rumors and trailers out of Hollywood and beyond. But they are so much more than that. They highlight the latest trends, innovations, and challenges, and touch on the wider entertainment culture: TV shows, home video, theme parks, the whole gamut! Now how much would you pay?
This year you get TWO opportunities to load up your media memory banks. The first is bright and early Friday morning, 10 am to noon in Grand 3. Then, an after-party meetup at 3 pm Friday in the convention lounge (room 7106), for things they didn't have time for in the main Friday show. And the triumph of their Sunday show, which preview-going veterans know is more free-form, and features the must-be- experienced-to-be-believed "Why? Why? WHY?," Sunday at noon in Evergreen 1 & 2. They make it easy to get your weekend dose of full-frontal media mayhem!
