Convention Season for PDG

It is October which can only mean that it is time for the Great Falls Gaming Rendezvous 2014. The Great Falls Gaming Rendezvous (GFGR) is a 3-day convention held in Montana. Stolen from the website:

Founded in 2012, our goal is to bring gamers together for a weekend of quality gaming and other activities for a weekend of non-stop fun and entertainment.
We host a variety of different games and activities ranging from Roleplaying Games, Board & Card games, Video Games, Gaming Panels, a Costuming Contest, and much much more.
The 2014 Great Falls Gaming Rendezvous will be held Columbus Day Weekend, October 10-12 at the Townhouse Inn, 1411 10th Ave South, (406) 761-4600.
Our guests this year include David Nett, Marlesa Crawford, Crimson Vermillion & John Ruggles!

I attended last year at the request of Robert Thomson and participated in a number of panels, ran a group through Purple Mountain, and played in a number of games including a demo of the Swordland Rpg. I also got to meet with Owen K. C. Stephens last year which was a treat for me.

I'm going back again this year and lead author and unrelenting editor Perry Fehr is also coming along as well. I'll be on four panels and trying to run as many DCC games as I can in the inbetween times, and Perry will be on two panels and trying to run as many Pathfinder games set in Porphyra as he can.

If you are in Montana, you should make it part of your weekend. If you are in Southeast Saskatchewan or Southern Alberta and heading into the states on this Thanksgiving Weekend the GFGR is a great place to get some gaming in.

The New September...

The Celestial Knight
The new school year has started for me over a Purple Duck Games and it looks like the first semester is going to be a very busy one. So much so, that I think it is necessary to develop a bit of a work schedule in order to balance the workload and make progress on a number of things. After my schoolwork is done for the night. Right now, my workload looks like this...

Monday - Monsters of Porphyra II
Tuesday - Lands of Porphyra
Wednesday - Prestige Archetypes (Warrior Prestige Archetypes + Compilation)
Thursday - Heroes of the .... (currently Middle Kingdoms)
Friday - [Campaign Prep - Wrath of the Righteous]
Saturday - Paths of Power II Compilation
Sunday - Fehr's Ethnology Complete

Each of those should receive between zeros minutes and a couple of hours a day if things go well and it will keep multiple projects moving forward.

Speaking of which, Warrior Prestige Archetypes Subscription (WPAs) launches this week and we have the Celestial Knight already up for sale at the wazala store. I'll be uploading the other files to the store right away after I get some freelancers paid and some new art ordered.

Speaking of art, Jacob Blackmon is the primary artist on the Warrior Prestige Archetypes and Gary Dupuis is back from his summer vacation and is back at work putting together a whack of new art for me on some unmentioned product.

We also drop off a ton of prize support for the 24 Hours to Play with Your Food (2014) event today with Dana.

New Maps For An Older Adventure

Claytonian sent me two hand drawn maps for AL 1: Bone Hoard of the Dancing Horror (DCC).

Claytonian writes about RPGs at Kill It With Fire, and wrote and illustrated DCC module Wizardarium of Calabraxis. He was also one of our earliest playtesters on our DCC products.

If you are looking to pick up Bone Hoard of the Dancing Horror or any of our other DCC releases like Perry's Funnel called Playing the Game, or Daniel's CE 5 - Silent Nightfall or HT 1 - The Perils of Cinder Claws they can easily be picked up over at the wazala store with our 50% off ENNIES coupon (for a little while longer).
