Where to find me at Gen Con Online 2021

15 Aug

It’s convention season again, and once again I’ll be attending Gen Con Online via Twitch! I don’t have any games scheduled, but you can find me on two Pelgrane Press seminars. Once again I’ll join Rob Heinsoo to design a new monster for 13th Age using input from the audience, this time along with the talented Liz Argall and J-M DeFoggi (who developed my adventure Crown of Axis.) Also, last year’s Dramatic Interaction in RPGs Masterclass was one of my favorite parts of Gen Con Online 2020 and I’m incredibly honored to be invited onto this year’s panel!

Gateway 2019: 13th Age and Night’s Black Agents

9 Aug

I’ll be running 13th Age and Night’s Black Agents at Strategicon Gateway 2019, which goes from August 30 to September 2 in Los Angeles!

Game sign-ups open Friday, August 10—here are my sessions:

13th Age: Assault on the Dungeon of the Pogonomancer!

Saturday, 2:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
The renegade dwarf wizard Owlbeard and his evil hordes have launched an attack on his former clan. Your mission: find the wizard’s secret lair deep in the underworld, and assassinate him before the dwarves are defeated! 3rd level pregens are provided, and at the start of the session you’ll personalize them with backgrounds, relationships, and a One Unique Thing. Those choices then shape the adventure!

Night’s Black Agents: The Van Helsing Letter

Sunday, 2:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
You are covert operatives waging a bloody shadow war against Dracula and his minions. Now you’ve discovered a letter from Van Helsing himself that reveals the existence of another powerful undead horror. Can you find and destroy the creature before Dracula brings it under his control? A supernatural spy thriller adventure powered by the GUMSHOE investigative system.

I hope to see you there!

RPGs I’m running at Gamex 2018

7 May

Gamex2018I’m honored to be a special guest at Gamex 2018, taking place over Memorial Day Weekend (May 25-28) in Los Angeles. When I’m not running tabletop RPGs, I’ll be at the Pelgrane Press table in the dealer’s hall, where you can buy some of the games I’ve worked on. You can also find me at Friday evening’s meet and greet.

Here are the four-hour games I’m running—sign up to play here. Hope to see you then!

No experience necessary, level 2 pre-generated characters provided.

To save the world, sometimes you have to save a vampire—especially when they have information you need, and they’ve been captured by the not-so-friendly neighborhood sun cult! Getting to their island temple won’t be easy, though. Will you choose the Path of Battle, the Path of Cunning, or the Path of Welcome? No experience necessary, pre-generated characters provided.

Warlock MtnSunday, 9:00 a.m. The Secret of Warlock Mountain (Hillfolk/DramaSystem)
You are refugees from a doomed planet seeking a new home in small-town central California in 1965, where you must keep your true nature a secret from your human neighbors. But will the echoes of the past and the challenges of this new world push your relationships to the breaking point? Use collaborative storytelling and player vs. player interaction to play out exciting scenes of drama and interpersonal conflict.

loki-valkyrie-1014826-320x180Monday, 9:00 a.m. Ragnarok (Hillfolk/DramaSystem)
You are the gods of Asgard, your starships roving the galaxy in a desperate search for a new home. Sailing the black tides of the cosmos, will you find salvation in the void where armies of the hungry dead writhe endlessly beneath black suns? Or will your rivalries and jealousies tear you apart first? Use collaborative storytelling and player vs. player interaction to play out exciting scenes of drama and interpersonal conflict.
