LOS ANGELES, CA (I-Newswire) February 6, 2013 - Strategicon's Orccon, the largest gaming convention in southern California, will be held February 15-18, 2013 at the Sheraton Gateway Hotel near the Los Angeles International Airport.
Worlds collide in this year's Orccon lineup.

Role-playing is alive and well, with over 140 fantastic events scheduled, ranging from Savage Worlds to GURPS and spanning diverse universes from Marvel to Star Trek.
