RPPR Episode 19: Gencon 2008 Wrapup

We’re back from the best four days of gaming! We talk about everything from the new games premiering at Gencon to the awesome people we met to the games we played or ran. It was a blast and we look forward to next year. Some of the highlights this year include meeting Dave Arneson and getting a first edition of Blackmoor autographed, interviewing quite a few game designers and writers, playtesting a new Call of Cthulhu scenario from Pagan Press (which we recorded and will post to the podcast! stay tuned for that) hanging out with gamers and podcasters, sleeping very little and eating less and running Monsters and Other Childish Things. We will post our interviews on a regular basis for the next month or so.

Games and books mentioned:

Music: The Sword of Fire by Studiomig.

    As always, a quality effort. The production values of your podcasts and short films are always top notch. The content is superior as well. Keep up the good work!

    I was a little disappointed that there wasn’t a letter from Tom, but otherwise I loved it. I had heard of Gencon but never really knew what it was about.

    Pizza and fascism 😛

    I didn’t think I should write a letter for the GenCon wrapup. There was too much content involving the shit we did at the con. Besides, even now, my brain is so overloaded and unable to process thought, I’m having trouble simply wiping myself right now.

    What is the exact title of the book you mentioned. Ned Flander’s War?

    I misread the title. It is ‘Beneath Flanders Field” http://www.amazon.com/Beneath-Flanders-Fields-Tunnellers-1914-1918/dp/0773529497

    In Flanders fields the poppies blow
    Between the crosses, row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
    Scarce heard amid the guns below.

    We are the Dead. Short days ago
    We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
    In Flanders Fields.

    Take up our quarrel with the foe:
    To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
    We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
    In Flanders Fields.

    – Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae
    Canadian army
