TLG at Gen Con

Quick question to those in positions of "in the know": Are there plans for a C&C 'Tourney' or the like at the con, the way there was last year with the wildly successful Giant's Rapture? If so, A) I would be interested in running (I had a lot of fun doing so last year), so I'm just sort of tossing m...

It's Coming Along!

Slowly, but surely, I'm starting to really get my pet project closer to completion. The long process has included a redo of my world map, which I'm currently in the process of doing. I'm just excited enough that I wanted to give everyone a looksee! EDIT: Updated with this weekend's extra work! http:...

Re: Who's Yer Con 2014, Feb 21-23

Apologies, all, but due to unforeseen circumstances, I will not be able to run my Whosyercon C&C games as planned. I'm still hoping to make a couple shortened appearances at the con, but I had to pull my games from the schedule and cancel out from the games I had planned on attending as well. I'm ho...

Re: GenCon Hotel Registration Starts Today

All's I can say is thank god I live in Indy. :mrgreen: I feel really bad for all of yas that have to undergo the rigmarole of preregistration for hotel rooms. Seeing how messed up event registration is, it's hard to believe that hotels could be worse, but there you go.

Re: Campaing Detail

The thing about detail, IMHO, is that when you know those details, the environment becomes a much more complete, more engaging, and more engrossing place for the players. They may not ever have to know that-- for instance-- two generations ago, Lord Lindlay was secretly murdered by his brother, and ...

Re: Rethinking the Plus level bonus to saves

This is something that a couple of my players have railed hard against when we were regularly playing, calling the Siege Engine a "broken rule".

Of course, it goes on to say that Hit Dice alone doesn't make a monster encounter, so whether or not tha...

The above pretty much describes me to a "T". When I got back into role playing, with the name brand (D&D 3.5), I was astonished at what a heavier ruleset it had and how the emphasis had been put on numbers. It threw me that combat took so godawful long, and when I first started running, how much mor...

Gen Con was the same blast it ordinarily is for me, although it becomes a little more difficult year when you factor in that I had a seven-month old to help my wife keep occupied, so I had to tone down my usual spending and away-from-home time. It also meant I had to spend late night bar-hopping wit...
