Where to Find me at Gen Con Online 2020

26 Jul

Online tabletop gaming is booming as people look for new ways to connect and socialize while weathering the global COVID-19 pandemic in lockdown. I’ve already run many roleplaying games using platforms such as Zoom, Discord, Slack, Google Meet, and the ultra-simple whiteboarding tool Jamboard.

And now the mighty Gen Con itself is going virtual! I’ll be participating in two online seminars this year—here’s where you can find me:

I’ll also be at the ENnie Awards and the Black Book v2 Launch Party (w/ Lovecraft Virtual Tour). The Black Book is a phenomenal GUMSHOE roleplaying system character creation tool and I strongly recommend it if you GM or play Night’s Black Agents, Trail of Cthulhu, Fall of DELTA GREEN, and other GUMSHOE games.

See you at Gen Con!
