A convention is a historical element or event that one or more RP Troupe adopts as part of their own story line. Conventions could include the destruction of a city or caern / node, etc. It could also be the development of new technology, the elimination of whole areas of the map, etc.
Think of Conventions as 'previous plot elements' or 'historical moments'. These are basic guidelines for how the world, according to the Troupe, works. Troupes are welcome to share conventions or to invent their own as their Storytellers require.
Conventions can be as small as individual bits of technology (such as Ball Drones) or as large as entire thematic content (such as Zombieland). Conventions will often include locations, factions, technology, etc.
