Preparing for RECRUITS

I'm getting ready for the RECRUITS Fall convention in September. Usually it falls on my wedding anniversary and I can't attend, but this year's different! I can't say enough good things about RECRUITS. If you're anywhere in the Midwest, it's worth the trip. It's very kid friendly, has great vendors, great games and dirt cheap (free for kids and service members, $5 for everyone else).
I want to unveil the the great cave system Ludstuff did for me a while back, but still haven't hammered out what the actual game will be. Pirates looking for Conquistador gold? Vikings seeking a great wyrm's horde? Spaceman Spiff vs the mole-men of Moon Six?
Any suggestions, people of the Internets? Needs to work for 6-8 players.

A race to find a rumored legendary piece of Ancient Tech lost in the Caves of Toom Saw Yer by rival wastelanders.

Would get us another game of FoL:WW in at the con.

BTW got another building done for my FoL:WW game for the con. http://leadaddict.blogspot.com/

Beautiful piece of scenery, it's got to be insdpiring for games. I like the pirates idea...I don't know why I'm thinking sci-fi like a startrekky thing or space marines...

The theme for the con this year is SciFi.

I wonder if there is any Classic Battletech going on at Recruits this year. The local BT players are very good at teaching new players. Perahps I should contact the games organizer and set something up.

Nathan,
I always see somebody running BT at RECRUITS. Unfortunately, in all the years I've seen him run it, he's never painted a single Mech. It's a shame to see raw lead running around.
Contact Duane at RECRUITs. He's the organizer and all around nice guy.
