I’m going to be hanging out at Wizard World’s Portland Comic Con this weekend. I have a number of scheduled sessions, and I also have a table in the main hall. My talks are as follows:
EBERRON AND BEYOND
Saturday @ 2 PM, Room B119
It’s Eberron Q&A: The Live Edition. Anything you want to know about? Come ask. I’ll also be discussing Project Codex and other things that I’m working on.
DEVELOPING FANTASY WORLDS
Saturday @ 5 PM, Room B119
It’s what I do. Let’s talk about it.
BASICS OF GAME DESIGN
Sunday @ 2:30 PM, Room B119
I think I’m going to be joined by James Ernest, evil genius and founder of Cheapass Games. Between us we’ve made card games, board games, RPGs, MMORPGs, LARPs, pennywhistles… well, OK, no pennywhistles. Still, we’ve worked on a vast assortment of games, and this is a chance to talk about some of the underlying principles.
… AND THEN THERE’S THAT TABLE.
This isn’t a talk; I’ve just got a table assigned to me in the hall. I figured that I’ll hang out there most of the day on Saturday when I’m not giving a talk. I’ll probably be there Friday from 3 to 6, and Sunday morning. What will I do there? That depends on you. Talk about games? Play Gloom or Cthulhu Fluxx? I could do any of these things. If you think you’ll be there, let me know in the comments so I know if it’s worth hanging out!
AND THERE’S CONCERTS!
If you’re in Portland for cons and general geekery, I recommend going to the concert at Backspace at 8 PM on Friday night. Portland superstars The Doubleclicks will be joined by Kirby Krackle and Klopfenpop. It’s a nerdstravaganza!
