GenCon 2010 – Photodump

As I said when I posted my Photodump for Origins, I’m not the best in the world at remembering to take pictures when I’m at a convention. I thought I did better this time, but when I looked at how many pictures I managed to take, I still found myself wishing I had taken more. Oh well. Them’s the breaks, as they say (do they say that?)…

GenCon 2010 – Retrospective

I’ve had at least a full 24 hours to think about my time at GenCon, and I still don’t know if I am able to sort through everything properly. Given the scope of the show, that’s not terribly surprising. GenCon is the biggest gathering of gamer and gamer-related awesomeness that I have ever seen. I guess, for me, the best place to start with with my …

The Journal of a Sunite – First Entry

                In front of you sits a small leather bound journal, the leather has been skilfully dyed a deep ruby red and the pages are edged in gold. Upon the cover carefully crafted into the leather is a picture of a woman with long wild hair, she is a beauty to look upon and her eyes seem to be playfully dancing …

Doctor Who – Adventures in Time and Space Review

I’ll begin by saying that if you are unaware of the glory that is the British Science Fiction hit, Doctor Who , you have almost 50 years of television to catch up on.  However, thankfully, Cubicle 7 wrote this game to cover a relatively small but very pertinent portion of the Doctor’s grand history.  Though it makes reference to the series as a whole, we really are just concerned …

GenCon 2010 – Days 4 & 5: Double-Day Recap

So much of a convention like this just seems to pass in a blur. I know that I’ve talked to a lot of really cool people, but if I had to name them or step knee-deep into a fire-ant hive, I’d have burning welts all over my lower legs. (Did I really just write that? Must have, no one else is…

GenCon 2010 – Day 3 Ennies and Such

My third day in Indianapolis dawned…. well, I’m sure that it did dawn, but unlike when I went to Origins, I am getting a lot more sleep here. Not sure if that means I’m doing this right, or doing it wrong, but I feel better. Anyway, I got up at around 8:30, which was nice, and walked over to the Convention Center. The Morning The morning was an…

GenCon 2010 – Day 2 (What everyone else is calling Day 1)

Yeah,, I guess I started my day count a little early since  technically the convention didn’t start until yesterday. So, if you’re trying to keep score at home, yesterday was the official first day of the convention, but since it was my second day onsite, I’m going to stick with the date that brought me to the dance. So yesterday was my Day 2, and…

We have our winners! The International Pathfinder Contest!

This morning I hit the old random number generator and gathered up our 16 winners! First, a quick breakdown. We had 362 individuals enter, with a total of 2,532 entries generated. Out of all of those entries, just under 60% came from the continental US, with England and Australia following in second and third place for number of entries (total). 15 people didn’t tell me where they were from, so…

GenCon 2010 – Day 1

Well, I arrived safe and sound in heat wave that is Indianapolis. I found my hotel with no problem, met one of my two roommates, railed in vain against the amount that the hotel charges for parking, and then walked my way over to the Indiana Convention Center to find out what this GenCon thing was all about. So, far, it has been…

Prepping for a Convention Game, Pt 2

Yesterday, I wrote the first part of this article . I talked about the games and I prepped for KantCon, and what made them easier or hard to get ready. Today, I’m going to work those ideas down into some general tips for getting a convention game ready to go. Be Aware of Your Time Budget At most conventions, unless you’re running…

Prepping a Convention Game, Pt 1

Given that I’m only a few days out from GenCon, and I recently got some experience with prepping convention games ( see KantCon Actual Play Sessions ). I figured that on the eve of the eve of my departure for Indianapolis, I’d take some time and give some insights on how I went about prepping my games for KantCon, …

Quick Review: Making Craft Work – a workable system for crafting items in Pathfinder

Crafting items is one of those things that just hasn’t worked correctly according to the rules, since the advent of the d20 system.  Easy crafting tasks, that in game should take a day or two could stretch on for weeks or months of in game time and hard tasks, well, some of them could be completed in a…

GenCon 2010 – The pre-convention post

I’ve been to a couple of conventions this summer, as you no doubt know. Origins was a really good time , and KantCon gave me some good friends (and a killer snack table). I have never had experiences like this before. They were both amazing, but now it’s time for something even bigger. I leave for GenCon in one…

The status of the Aruneus Project – making a 100 page zombie apocalypse source book for the Pathfinder RPG system

Last December I sat down with a good friend and we talked a bit about what a standard high fantasy world would be like if a worldwide zombie apocalypse were to happen to it.  What would happen to the various nations, empires and races?  Who would be affected most?   How would it change the political structure, the formation of cities, or just …

A new creature for Pathfinder/d20 – The Coilicoot

Preferring temperate or cold forests above all else, the Coilicoot is a snake-like mammal which has claimed many curious victims. Appearing like a cross between a large snake and a house cat, the Coilicoot can be found in many northern forests throughout the world.  Their coloration ranges from whites and blacks through dark orange and brown. Unlike their reptilian counterparts, …

Gary Gygax was born today in 1938 – let’s give him an honor roll!
