There are a lot of cool products being released and activities going on. I panned on making a list of some of the cool items released this past few weeks, but I lost the list and I don't have enough time or brain power to remember them. But there are some cool activities I do remember.
+Timothy Brannan is participating in a Live Chat on #RPGNet. Friday Night at 8:00pm Central time. I asked him to remind me today because I wasn't going to remember, but hey, even I have the capacity to 'member something. I think I'm going to listen in on it, but I've never been on RPGNet for more than a few minutes total. Here's the link http://tinyurl.com/rpgnetchat.
+ConTessa is kicking off this weekend. +Stacy Dellorfano is leading the way for this on-line convention. You can find the event list at +Tavern Keeper. I want to join in a game, but weekends are usually lousy times for me to play. I'm hoping to sneak into one of the panels about Game Design. Should be interesting.
+Gasp Games is having a game day tomorrow in the Pittsburgh area. Another activity I really want to take part in as it's only 90 minutes away. +Brianna Sheldon is going to have her hands full between +ConTessa and game day. I'd like to go down there one time and check to see what its about then maybe run a few games. I'd really like to get back to running a game now and then.
+Erik Tenkar is kicking off a significant contest. The "So You Want to be an OSR Superstar?" competition. There are some very cool prizes available. The first stage is create a magic item using Swords & Wizardry Complete ruleset. I imagine most of you already have cool magic items made, dust them off, polish and enter. Erik asked me to be one of the judges. And before you ask, yes I do accept bribes and my currency is gaming books.
+Douglas Cole has got a 2 hour interview with +Kenneth Hite. You can find it on his Gaming Ballistic blog. I've been reading Ken's gaming books for several years. The guy knows his stuff and Douglas does a great job with the interview.
So my question to you is, doing any gaming the weekend? I'm hoping to get in a few of the above. So much great stuff going on.
