Now that I’m back from Gen Con, PAX is upon us! Here’s my (rather short & pleasant schedule):
The Art of the Table II: Return to the Table
Friday 9pm — Raven Theater
Ben Mandall, Jeff Fasenfest, Sage LaTorra, Ryan Macklin, Jess Hartley, Erik Mona, Robert Gifford, Mat Margalis
The Art of the Table is back to delve into the heart of what makes for a truly great experience at the gaming table! You’ve spent years harrying your players, running them ragged in diabolical adventures and fiendish dungeons… Or maybe you’ve left a trail of broken GMs and mangled quests in your wake. When rules knowledge is no longer an issue, how can focusing on such things as improvisation, in-character roleplay, and story structure help enhance a game? Does the alignment of your gaming table really matter? Just which house rules really work? Come dig deeper into what makes a good RPG and what turns a good GM into a great one.
Saturday 10am to 2pm — Room 301
I’ll be running Mythender for up to four people. It’s first-come, first-serve, and sign-ups are in Tabletop Hadquarters in room 204.
Indie Games on Demand
Room 305 and 306 — @pax_indie_rpgs
I’m not schedule to be on Indie Games on Demand specifically, but time I’m not spending wandering the hall or getting food will likely be spent here. So, if you’re looking to catch me, this is a good bet! (After spending most of Gen Con booked, I’m pretty happy to have loads of flexible time for PAX.)
Query: Looking for Crash Space
So I don’t have to drive into Seattle & deal with parking every day, I’m hoping some kind soul will have some crash space (even a floor) so that I can avoid such suffering.
[Will be updated as more info happens.]
Guys! PAX is upon us! And if you’re going, you must stop by the Indie RPGs on Demand room there. The inestimable Sage La Torra is heading up an epicenter of awesome. I’ll let him take it from here. (With the emphases mine) I’ll be here quite a bit, either gaming or hanging out, so if you want to meet up with me, that’s a good place to look!
What is PAX Indie RPGs on Demand?
I’m glad you asked, writing device. PAX Indie RPGs on Demand is the place to go to play small press, cutting edge games. Show up and we’ll find you a game to play in.
Where is this hotness?
Room 306, just off the escalators on your way up to the main hall.
How do I get in on some games?
Just show up! Games will start primarily on even numbered hours (10 am, noon, 2 pm, etc.) but we’ll sign you up whenever you stop by. Games might even start other times if there’s players and space. You can also find out the latest news by following @pax_indie_rpgs on Twitter.
What kind of games can I play?
Well, it depends on who’s available when you come by, but some games that will be happening include: Apocalypse World, Fiasco, Burning Wheel, Mouse Guard, Dungeon World, Cat, Microscope, Lady Blackbird, Freemarket, The Wildlings, Blowback, Perfect, Maid, Drifter’s Escape, Cthulhu Dark, Tulip Academy, Geiger Counter, Polaris, On the Ecology of the Mud Dragon, Dogs in the Vineyard
So come on by, play some games, and see something new. And if you’re interested in these games you might also want to check out Friday’s The Art of the Table: GMing Beyond the Basics (Noon-1pm, Raven Theater) and Designing and Publishing a Tabletop Roleplaying Game (4:30-5:30pm, Raven Theater) panels.
