I'll Be at NORWESCON in Seattle This Weekend!
This year, my buddy Tim Nightengale used his formidable Rolodex to put together an astonishingly awesome gaming program with participants you're unlikely to find this side of Gen Con. Seriously, Seattle is a major center of RPG and hobby game activity, and I believe representatives from most of the major local companies (WotC, Paizo, Green Ronin, etc.) will be on hand.
Here's my seminar schedule (a bit light this year, which is fine because I should spend most of the weekend writing). I'm really excited about all of these, and hope to see you there!
Friday, Noon, Evergreen 2
Build a Better Adventure
What makes a good adventure? One that players can't wait to continue; that they spend their off-time thinking about and planning for until they play again? Join our gaming panelists in a discussion of how to design better adventures.
Erik Mona (M), Richard Baker, Bruce R. Cordell, James Jacobs
Friday, 4:00 p.m., Evergreen 2
Underwater Ninja Tigers! (or A Friendly Discussion on Monster Design)
What makes a truly great monster in a game? Our panelists discuss the best of the best in the gaming menagerie (or the worst of the worst, depending on your perspective), with an emphasis on the monsters themselves and not on any particular game systems statistics, and give their expert advice on how to come up with your own creations.
Erik Mona (M), Wolfgang Baur, James Jacobs
Saturday, 1:00 p.m., Evergreen 1
Ask the Gamemasters
Has your current campaign reached a dead end? Not sure how to keep your players happy? Have a problem player that you need to deal with? Want to add some house rules to your game, but unsure how to make them work? Come to this panel with questions about your RPG campaign.
Erik Mona (M), Jason Bulmahn, Sean K Reynolds
Should be fun! See you there!
