August and GenCon begin, Goodbye July

31 July, 2019

Yes, I am rather famousAugust (named after that very unhumble Roman first citizen Augustus Caesar) will be a month of personalities from the Sea of Stars (and possibly other places).  If there is someone -or something– in particular you would like to see, write a comment or otherwise let me know.

I will be off at GenCon from the end of July to early August but page updates should continue during that time (and this is where you can find me at GenCon).  If you have not commented before, your comments may have to wait to be approved once I get back (sorry).

July, 2019, saw the following posts published on the journal:

Finding Me at GenCon 2019

29 July, 2019

GenCon!Should you wish to, first review my advice to those going, then look below:

I will be working primarily in the main event hall, the one in the Indiana Convention Center, for Alderac Entertainment Group (AEG) as usual, and we should have banners up.  Right now my schedule looks something like this:

Thursday, I will be teaching Thunderstone Quest from 8:30-11am and again from 2:30-5pm.

Friday, It will be War Chest, 11:45am-2pm and Thunderstone Quest from 2:30-5pm.  And from 6pm – 2am(ish), you will find me in the Board Game Hall overseeing and helping with AEG’s Big Game Night (BGN).  I will be busy but if you want to come and learn one of the recent AEG games, drop by after 9pm and you can join in and play (though not get any swag unless you already have a ticket).  As it winds down I will have more free time, though you may have to talk with me as I check and back away demo games.  In any case, feel free to drop by.

Saturday, the day starts with the new Walking in Burano, 11:45am-2pm, and then Thunderstone Quest from 2:30pm-5pm and again from 5:30-8pm

Sunday, last day, Thunderstone Quest, 8:30-11am and ending with Walking in Burano from 1:45-4pm.

Yes, it is me, soul intactSpotting me in a crowd!  On duty I will be wearing an AEG t-shirt and my hair (pulled back in a pony tail) and beard are mostly white, and I am an average height slightly overweight white man, so, yeah, I will not be that easy to spot.  Photo attached for reference.

Beyond that, who knows?  But I arrive on Tuesday to help with setup.  So drop me a note if you want to try and meet up, I am sure we can work something out.

In any case, to all those going and not going: Have fun and play more games.

16 July, 2019

Kings can fight backThis takes place immediately after Episode 6, though it was played after Interlude 2 (and Episode 8).  Chronology gets confusing with a constellation of character based play structure.

Our cast for this episode:

Fiorentino, Reed Greenbottle, Hartessa and Skatska

Episode 9: Losing at Chess and Life

11 July, 2019

GenCon!GenCon is about three weeks away (where did the year go?), so, I thought I would (again) share my hard-earned experience and try and help out people who are going as I do every year.

Shadowrun Campaign Update with New Seattle Scream Prop (#61)

6 July, 2019

Rats!Shadowrun gaming is ongoing, but slowly.  The monthly games at Tyche’s Games (every first Saturday every month, come and join) continue apace and in support of that we have a new Seattle Scream (#61).  This month the team had to outwit devil rats to achieve their goal, not as easy as it may sound.

All of the primary groups I play with are excitingly waiting for the Sixth Edition, which we will see at GenCon in early August, and the monthly game will be transitioning to Sixth Edition soon after it is available.

Also excited to see the new version of Cyberpunk from R Talsorian which will be great inspiration for all cyberpunk styled games.

Our NorCal campaign has not had any more play since the last update, sadly.
