MerpCon, or Middle-Earth Role Playing Convention is an annual convention held in Spokane, Washington. It is not endorsed by Middle-earth Enterprises, the Tolkien Estate, and not associated with Iron Crown Enterprises' "MERP".

[edit] History

MerpCon is held each year during the last weekend of July. It runs for 3 days from that Friday, through to the end of Sunday (and sometimes a little into the morning of that following Monday). The event is focused on Role Playing Gaming in J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth, using any game system adapted or created for play in Middle-earth or any aspect of Tolkien's universe. The first MerpCon was organised in 2005, followed by a new one each year.

MerpCon was founded by Hawke Robinson.
