This just in from This Just In From Gen Con 2009
Once again it’s on: Ryan Macklin is re-attempting his mildly insane project of podcasting semi-live from Gen Con, and we’re doing his show notes semi-officially this time. For the Thursday 11am show:
- Pandemic and its On The Brink expansion.
- You already know the Diana Jones Award. Here’s a Dominion link if you still need one.
- Konami’s Blue Dragon CCG.
- The Hite Trifecta: Rough Magicks for Trail of Cthulhu, The Day After Ragnarok for Savage Worlds, and Cthulhu 101 for the kids.
- The very cool-sounding Writers Symposium at Gen Con.
- The ENnie Awards are gonna be hot this year.
- Brave New World: The Movie: The Rally: The Concert! BNW has a long history of vaguely ARG-y Gen Con doin’s, the history of which unfortunately seems to have vanished from the intertubes.
- Midnight Chronicles, the other let’s-make-our-game-into-a-movie movie, is out on DVD and, interestingly, paid download via DriveThruRPG.
- Pirate Jenny, a booth full of female RPG publishers. Not just designers: publishers. Be sure and check out RPGirl while you’re there.
- The line for the Pathfinder RPG was giving people trouble. I expect that to be a theme of the weekend.
- Wow, Catalyst is bringing out an insane amount of stuff: Eclipse Phase, anniversary stuff for SR as well as BT, and something more on the Eighth World setting used in that BattleRun thing. Sorry I can’t find more links; with all these products coming out, Catalyst apparently hasn’t had much web-page-buildin’ time.
There it is, or as much of it as I wrote down, anyway. If you’re new to OgreCave: hi. No, we aren’t just a podcast. Yes, we still do the podcast (podcasts, even). You should follow us on Twitter. We like you and think you’re special.
