This weekend I’ll be one of the Special Guests at Midwest GameFest November 1st thru the 4th at Stoney Creek Inn in Independence, MO (Kansas City metro area). Preregistration is done, but there is still plenty of space to sign up on site. I’ll be running Star Wars RPGs, plus Savage Worlds Flash Gordon, my annual Numenera game, and for the first time….the new Paranoia RPG. I’m also running my Writing RPGs and Cartography seminars. So, I’ll be busy.
The Asmodee/FFG/etc. Holiday Sale is already up and running. It is always a good opportunity to pick up a few older or recently canceled game items from the various Asmodee companies.

Anyone interested in the new Android Genesys RPG book coming soon might also like to check out the Android: New Angeles board game or the Android fiction.
