  1. ooh Pandemic Reign of Cthulhu

    this shit all still sounds vastly too expensive and overwhelming for me, but I always enjoy the after-action stuff from you guys! good luck going among the nerds

  2. Temple of the Frog, yes no school like the old school. I have a copy of that module as well. The cover has a robed man shooting giant carnivorous frogs with a laser rifle. That’s right mix your sci-fi with my fantasy.

  3. I find it kind of strange that Aaron got pickpocketed/robbed at GenCon. This will be at least my eighth GenCon and I’ve never had that happen. Including the two years I hoboed it and slept on hotel furniture in the lobbies.

    I need to disagree with Caleb on his “don’t wander aimlessly”. Besides maybe a few things, that is literally what I’ve done every year. There is so much going on you can find something fun to do at anytime.

    Yeah, fuck those backpacks/luggage carts though.

    When I give people GenCon advice I always tell them “Never use first floor restrooms. Espeically in the dealers hall.

    I can’t wait to see you all there 🙂

  4. Especially for Caleb though goes for anyone interested in these, but finally got to play both Scythe & the new 51st State for board games & both were excessively fun & easy to learn. Some of the art in both would be great inspiration for game scenarios or GM characters. Have yet to play the Mice & Mystics bird dogfighting game but from all I’ve seen of people playing it at the board game events down here in hellish Texas, it looks well made for the minis & a solid game from the look at the gameplay.

    All sounds like a good set of plans at Gen Con for RPPR & friends so it sounds like it will be a blast. Hopefully all the people suffering from the Pokemon Go addiction will quickly kill off their phone batteries with the early catching activity & then enjoy the con (over just walking around catching pokemon like you now can all the rest of the time).

  5. Thanks for reminding me about the Battletech pods Shawn. I knew I left something off my GenCon to-do list.

  6. Aaron getting pick pocketed, you sure he didn’t just accidentally give his wallet out thinking it was a business card? Lol jk. As a partial service worker, men/woman of god 90% of the time dont tip.
