So, no Origins for me now.

I was planning to hit it this year as a reentry into the larger gaming con experience, but after this ridiculous Larry Correia dis-invitation nonsense I ain’t going.  Which is fine: it was going to be expensive, anyway… what? No, not the hotel and the registration or even the airfare. I was going to be at a gaming convention.  With a working credit card.  It was going to be a horrorshow, to the point where I might have had to decide on whether to jettison clothes to make room for purchases.

:spreads hands: But, hey, Origins: you do you. I’m sure that nobody wanted my money, anyway.

PS: I recognize that this is close to the Line.  Sorry.  But I ain’t no coward.

2016 Origins Award nominations are out.

The Origins award is basically an award for the tabletop game industry, and not just roleplaying games. It’s a pretty big thing, in some of my circles (including the circles I wouldn’t mind rejoining, and the ones that I’d like to just actually join). I can speak to the Best Roleplaying Game category: Pelgrane Press’s Dracula Dossier Director’s Handbook is, in fact, fantastic (I don’t know the Cubicle 7 entries, but that shop puts out a bunch of good stuff regularly; so does Atlas Games, particularly when it comes to Feng Shui). So, check ’em out.
