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…)

Back from WashingCon.

Both games went well: the Sunday morning game had a couple of cancellations, but you have to expect that on the second day. It meant that the adventure ended a little early, but at that point I was ready to go home and collapse anyway. GMing takes it out of you, or at least me. Happy players both times, so I assume that it all went well.

And, hey, I went to a panel for once. It was on publishing and selling RPGs; there were a bunch of industry pros at that one. Very practical stuff, and I got to ask a question or two. Well worth the time investment. All in all, WashingCon is definitely cool. Especially if you like board games; in that case, it’s practically Nirvana.

PS: Unfortunately, Georgetown University is a howling wilderness where the bars do not open until noon, and shut down at ten PM. This was almost legitimately horrifying. Isn’t it a college, or something?

Off to WashingCon!

There’s actually a panel I want to catch for once, so I’m going early. I will be back tomorrow, and I am deliberately not taking the Chromebook so that I can, you know, have a beer and relax a little instead. I am looking forward to it!

Calling WashingCon vacation early.

Six billion things to do, not all that much time to do them, you know how it goes.  Probably see you Sunday, honestly. Although I do have a Book of the Week and weekly microfiction to finish up tonight…

Reminder: WashingCon this weekend.

I’m going to be largely incommunicado Saturday and Sunday, and Friday I’m going to be busy throwing together the stuff for the two WashingCon games that I said that I’d run.  …Which I’m starting to wish I hadn’t volunteered for, or at least picked different game systems.  I could run In Nomine or GURPS in my sleep, after all.

Oh, well, at least I had the mother-wit to not go for overly convoluted. I have character sheets, I have dice, I have GM screens to hide behind, and I have the best advice possible for this kind of situation: “When in doubt, improvise.” After all, the goal here is not to break to my will a bunch of people I’ve never met before and probably won’t again. My job is to get a collaborative story going that people enjoy and that clocks in at just under four hours. I suppose that it’s good that it feels challenging; goodness knows I need more real-life stuff in my, erm, life.
