This is the 4th year of being able to carry-over your Chariot year-to-year and it is starting to pay off for some racers. Last year's Champion, Praelius Equitus Regulus (Doug "The Burns Bane" Rhea) will be racing as the Black Faction with an automatic berth in the Final and will not be racing in any Qualifiers. All other entrants will need to be scheduled in one of the 4 Qualifiers for a chance to make it into the Saturday morning Final. REMEMBER: If you don't qualify in one Qualifier, you can always try again in another. Your Chariot will earn some XP (but no money - you only earn money by qualifying) that can be used later on if you do end up qualifying in another Factional Qualifier. I have sheets for 30 past racers that you will be able to use in your Qualifier (if you choose) or you can roll up a new one. If you have raced at the Con anytime from the 7th Con (2015) to the present and lived, I have your sheet. Drop by the Elm Room and I will let you get acquainted with your Chariot and be able to upgrade if you have any XP or money to spend.
We had a great turnout in the Qualifiers last year, but not many people showed up for the Final. I have no problem with people wanting to get a taste of the Circus, but hopefully this year more racers will be able to battle for the Champion's Trophy and T-Shirt on Saturday Morning.
Starting last year, a 50% monetary penalty was applied to all racers who qualified but did not show for the Finals. Earned XP was not penalized. If you raced in a Qualifier and did not qualify, show up on Saturday morning and if there is an open spot you will be able to enter as a non-Faction racer. This offer is only for racers who tried to qualify this year and did not place 1st, 2nd or 3rd..You must have a functional Chariot and team with a Driver (no dead Driver, crashed Chariot, dead Horses - unless you want to race with less than 4?).
**Feel free to walk-up for a Factional Qualifier and if there is room I will let you race. The Red Faction Qualifier (Wed night) is usually pretty exciting as many Circus Maximus veterans tend to race in this one, but any qualifier can be exciting so grab a friend and try your luck! Who knows, you may have what it takes to be the 2018 NTRPG Con Circus Maximus Champion!!

PS Have a name ready for your Chariot driver and 3D6

There are almost always slots open in the Circvs Maximvs Qualifiers, but don't wait too long or you may be watching the race from the spina instead of racing! With the new Diesel trophies being offered (no more horse's ass!!!), this should be a classy 10th Anniversary race. Make sure to get into a Qualifier early.

So far the Red Faction Qualifier (Wed PM) has a good showing with 5 racers. If a Qualifier does not have more than 3 racers, the entrants automatically go through to the Saturday Final but without the chance to earn very much XP (random roll to decide 1st, 2nd, 3rd for XP, XP earned for unused Endurance) or Money (Monetary payout is only 1/2 due to no actual race being run) to better your chariot. The White Faction Qualifier (Thur AM) has 3 racers, Blue (Thur PM) has 2 racers and Green (Fri AM) has 2 racers. Get your best friend or worst enemy to enter to fill up your Qualifier. Make it sound like they will be doing you a favor (well, they actually will if you beat them up enough to give your chariot team some XP!) by entering. Also, the Diesel LaForce trophies are supposedly going to be amazing! (If you have seen the Gladiator trophy you will know what I mean).

So even if you don't plan on racing in the Saturday Final, come on out and enter so as to give the more serious racers a better field to race in or just to be a thorn in a friend's (or enemy's?) side. One of the easiest games to learn and once you play, I guarantee you will be hooked for life!!

If you have signed up for a Qualifier with 3 or less racers, don't assume there will be no race and you will automatically go through to the Final. There are usually walk ups at post time and people can still enter after May 15 by contacting me directly. I have had a Qualifier with 2 scheduled turn into a wild race with 9 entrants at post!! Even if no race needs to be run, I will still run you through enough to show you the game mechanics and some strategies. Hope to see you in a Qualifier!!
