Back from @WashingCon.

It went well, I think. Five people for the GURPS Dungeon Fantasy game, four for the In Nomine one; I had one person in each game who had played the game before, so we did a bunch of on-the-fly teaching and I streamlined a lot. The important thing was for the players to have fun, and I’m pretty sure that they did.

But dear Lord but con games take a lot out of me.  I was conked out by 10 PM last night, although the beer certainly helped.  For there was beer. I’ve finally figured out the Georgetown on-campus bar hours.  I had to maneuver through endless construction zones to get there, mind you — but that was a minor matter, and easily navigated.

PS: I should possibly try to get to know the WashingCon staff a bit better; this is, like, the third con of theirs I’ve run games for and I doubt any of them would recognize me if we met on the street.  Which is my fault, sure.  I’m just so worn out after running one of these that I feel little urge to socialize further.

Back from running Hall of Judgment at @WashingCon!

It went well!  I think.  My players seemed to enjoy it, at least.  Truncated the heck out of it, because one hour hour time block and everything, but I think that I got some fun out of it.  Also, I had a reader show up to play, and I don’t think that it can get much cooler than that.

But now I’m worn out.  And digesting two beers. But mostly worn out.

Sorry, folks. Con games this weekend.

…And they’re eating up all my bandwidth.  I had to do a bit more physical prep for both than I expected; for the In Nomine game I needed to go through three iterations of character sheets before I found a format that would help people understand what all that junk meant on their sheet.  The Dungeon Fantasy stuff was easier, because it was pre-printed — but I realized yesterday that there was no way I could fit that entire sourcebook into a four hour game, so I had to decide which bit to concentrate on. I think that we’re going to be good with what I picked, but who knows?

Anyway, that’s why it’s been sparse the last few days.  I want to run good games, here. Things will get back to normal on Sunday.

Reminder: @WashingCon this weekend.

I will be running two games at WashingCon: Hall of Judgment on Saturday (GURPS Dungeon Fantasy) and The Great Cow Race of 2018 on Sunday (In Nomine).  The second one will definitely have seats, but I suspect that the first one isn’t as sold out as it says it is.  There’s always somebody who doesn’t show.

Will be doing a lot of prep for these tomorrow: character sheets for the In Nomine game, more review of the GURPS one.

Reminder: WashingCon is this weekend, and I’m running games.

GURPS (Hall of Judgement) and In Nomine, to be specific. I have some hopes of getting people for the Saturday GURPS game but I am preparing myself for the possibility that nobody’s gonna show for the Sunday In Nomine game. Or even probability. Sunday morning is often not the best time to run a con game, and WashingCon is a board game convention in its heart. The gaming pool may be, ah, small.

Guess we’ll see!

My 2018 WashingCon RPG schedule. (Dungeon Fantasy and In Nomine)

WashingCon is on September 8th and 9th: I will be running two games.  On Saturday (2 PM) I will be running the Hall of Judgement adventure for GURPS Dungeon Fantasy — yup, the one from the Kickstarter.  All official-like, too; by which I mean I told Doug Cole I’d run it at WashingCon if he liked, and Doug liked.  Which is hardly surprising, of course.

The second game is on Sunday (10 AM), and will be The Great Cow Race of 2003.  What’s that?  I’m giving away the adventure with that link? Folks, read the write-up again.  It’s not an adventure: it’s four hours of applied Chaos and Old Night.  I never ran that adventure the same way twice; shoot, I never ran it the same way twice from hour to hour inside the adventure itself.  I fear nothing from having my players know ahead of time what the adventure might be; in fact, I welcome their growing madness.

:pause:

MADNESS!

@WashingCon tickets now on sale.

$40 bucks now; they’ll be $65 at the door, so if you like board games and/or RPGs and live in the DC area you probably want to go to WashingCon.  Honestly, this is much more a board game convention — an intensely family-friendly board game convention; a lot of families show up to run every game under the sun — than an RPG one, but they’ve been good about letting us roleplayers come in and get our game on. September 8th and 9th: I haven’t got official confirmation that I’m doing some games, but that’s only because they’ll start scheduling that later in the year. I see no major obstacles in my way for running a couple of games.

@WashingCon dates, ticket availability announced.

September 8-9, 2018. Tickets for WashingCon go on sale March 1st; I plan to run a couple of games again this year (assuming that they agree, of course).  As I’ve noted before, this year it’s going to be GURPS Dungeon Fantasy and In Nomine, because I can run either without having to look everything up all the time.

So I’m trying to decide what the @washingcon In Nomine game will be.

Assuming, of course, that they sign off on me doing an In Nomine game there. Although I can’t imagine why they wouldn’t: I’ve run games for them in the last two cons, I’ve caused no drama, and my other game’s going to be GURPS Dungeon Fantasy, which will be a whole lot simpler to plot out. I figure that they won’t even blink an eye, honestly. (more…)
