So one of the reasons Sword’s Edge has suffered so much is that I’ve been neck deep in projects all aimed at Gen Con 2011.
For those of you not in the know–and I have a hard time believing anyone who reads this blog is not in the know–Gen Con is a convention for role-playing, boardgames, and general geekery. I was lucky enough to attend in 2008 and will be doing so in 2011 as well.
One of the projects I was working on was the Quick and Dirty Gen Con Edition of Kiss My Axe: Thirteen Warriors and an Angel of Death, a Viking role-playing game which uses a version of the Sword’s Edge System, also used for Sword Noir: a Role-Playing game of Hardboiled Sword & Sorcery. The other two projects are one-shot adventures to run at Gen Con.
Just in case you aren’t keeping up with my Gen Con 2011 schedule posted at Sword’s Edge Publishing, I plan to be at Games On Demand, which one can find at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Pennsylvania Station C (which is a ballroom set aside for Gen Con gaming). Look for me on Thursday August 4 at 10:00 to 14:00 and Saturday August 6 at 10:00 to 14:00. I’ll have one-shots for both Sword Noir and Kiss My Axe. If I get a couple of people, I’ll be running a game, but I max out at 6.
