Strategicon, 30 Years Later

31 Aug

Photo Aug 30, 9 42 36 PMI took this photo of the open gaming hall at Strategicon‘s Gateway convention in 1987, when I was 20 years old. A friend and I went there on a road trip from my home town of Las Vegas. During that weekend we lived almost entirely on a loaf of white bread, a jar of peanut butter, and a beef stick from a convenience store.

Gateway ’87 was my first experience with the larger gaming community, and I got to meet the people who created some of my favorite roleplaying games—most memorably, the staff at Chaosium.

Tomorrow, 30 years later, I’ll attend Gateway again as an RPG designer myself! On Saturday at 9 a.m. I’ll run Temple of the Sun Cabal, a 13th Age adventure I wrote for Pelgrane Press. There are still spots available at the table if you want to join: Here’s the full event list.

Hope to see you there!

11 Jan

Going to OrcaCon in Everett this weekend? Want to play 13th Age RPG? You can see all of the game sessions here.

(Friday, 7:00 PM – Midnight)

The hunt for a missing vampire leads you to a volcanic island occupied by fanatical sun cultists. Their plan: sacrifice the vampire in a ritual to summon and control a long-lost flying temple to the sun gods—and use its power to “purify” the Dragon Empire by exterminating all other religions! Can you prevent the dawn of a terrifying new age, ruled by a ruthless theocracy of fire?

No experience is necessary to play this 13th Age RPG adventure, and level 4 pre-generated characters are provided. (Feel free to bring your own, though!)

Suggested age range is Everyone 6+.
No experience required; will teach rules to new players.
Maximum number of players is 6.
