Dragon Con was a blast. Savage Worlds products were flying out of the Beautiful Brains Books and Games booth. Clint and Jodi Black were on several well-received panels, and gaming in general and Savage Worlds in particular continue to grow every year. We had eight full tables at Savage Sunday Night, and a very good time was had. It’s always nice to catch up with folks you only see at the conventions, but this time I* got to meet Kristian Serrano (who I’ve only known electronically) in the flesh. Join us all there next year!
The legacy of Gen Con continues. The Misdirected Mark’s Gen Con Interviews, Part Two is now available. If you weren’t there, it’ll be like you were. If you were there, it’ll be like you still are (which is probably kind of creepy, really).
Plans are afoot for the annual Savage Worlds invasion at MACE. Their event submission is open now, and lots of talk at Dragon Con was about what we were all planning on running at MACE. Watch this space for more details as they come, and watch MACE November 7-9 in Charlotte, North Carolina, to catch at least Jodi and Clint Black and Joel Kinstle.**
There’s going to be some Savage Worlds gaming at Chupacabracon—at least two! While I’m sure there will be much more than that, both Shane Hensley and Clint Black are planning on attending. Shane will be running an East Texas University adventure called The Thing at Wilson’s Quarry which may finally dissuade college students from swimming in quarries for good. Clint will be treating people to his Sci-Fi original homage, Arctigator vs Crocosharkasaurus, with survival and better acting gigs both unlikely. Go ahead and mark your calendars for January 9-11, 2015 and catch them in Austin, Texas. You’ll be happier (and more likely to have some barbecue) if you do.
* Remember, if you see “I” in the updates, it’s me, Joel Kinstle. Pinnacle does not speak in some weird anti-royal non-we singular pronoun.
** Yes, that’s me again, but in the third person this time. All of you who have been victims of my editorial wrath may now feel smug for my lack of consistency.
