My Non-GenCon gaming experiences this Weekend

8 August, 2011

I was not able to make it to GenCon this year, but a group of my gaming friends got together from all over (from as far away as Orlando and North Carolina) for some gaming of our own.   Over the last four days, I have played: Thunderstone, Family Business, two RPGs in playtest, Unknown Armies (with muppets, er, poppets to avoid copyright issues and to see a brief clip of our brave GM playing a Beaker-esque cop), Shab-al-Hiri Roach, AGON and Old School Hack

The characters that have flittered across my mind over this time have been:

Abhal Tesh, spacefaring tech (playtest 1).  ‘Mitch’, drunken failure (Unknown Armies).  Indigo Ecstasy, master of disguise and trans-dimensional agent of the Ascendant Radial Path (playtest 2).   Assistance Professor Arlington Jackson-Smythe, demon-roach possessed drama professor.   Xanthos the Argive, Greek hero and money man.  Raven, now evil-mutated elfin archer.

While not as gaming intensive as GenCon, it was a blast to hang out and game with old friends.
