As most folks know, GenCon Indy 2017 (GenCon 50!) begins next week. So I figured I should post something up about my itinerary for the convention. I’m set to fly to Indy on the Tuesday, 15th of August, and I’ll be coming back to Ottawa on Monday, 21st of August, during the mid- to late evening. Yes, that’s right… I’m actually going to spend the whole Sunday in Indy so I can take in a bit more of the convention and all, and use the extra day to get some rest that night. will be flying down for the convention with me, so that’s cool.

I don’t have any stuff really scheduled for the convention, other than a couple of games I’ll be running and a game I hope I’ll be able to get into. I’ll be running two Coriolis – The Third Horizon RPG sessions (the same adventure) this year, and I’m looking forward to those. Here’s the listings of the games I’ll be running at the convention, for those who might be interested. While both the Friday afternoon and Saturday evening games are supposedly full, there’s always a chance as sometimes folks at GenCon don’t come out for their games, so remember those Generic tickets!

I’ve got a couple of other places I have to be, notably during the Wednesday evening and during Saturday afternoon, but if folks want to meet up with me, play stuff or whatever, please get in touch with me, and we can arrange something. I’ll be staying at the Westin Indianapolis but you can leave me a message on Twitter or drop me a text message on my mobile, if necessary.

In any event, I’m looking forward to seeing folks at the convention. Hope to meet up with old friends, and make some new friends. Oh, and do some gaming, of course! 🙂

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I’ll be running some a couple of times, I’ll be running some Coriolis – The Third Horizon scenarios at this year’s GenCon Indy. Today, the initial gaming schedule for GenCon 50 will go on-line in about 15 minutes, and I was pleased to learn in an e-mail yesterday (Saturday) that the two games I’ll be running were finally confirmed as being on the schedule, so today potential players can sign up to play in the games.

So here’s the listings on the games that I’ll be running for those that might be interested. I don’t know how quickly the games will fill with players once the game registration process opens at the end of May, but if you’d like to play “Arabian Nights in space” with me, please consider adding the games to your wish list and signing up for them.

As most folks know, today is Mother’s Day.

Due to various things going on for Mother’s Day in Tammy life, the Sunday gaming group will not be playing today.

I had been looking forward to playtesting “The Dixmude Affair” for the Primeval RPG that I’ll be running at CanGames in one week, but alas and alack, that will not happen today.

So I’m going to spend some time today doing Mother’s Day things, some reading, maybe watching some DVD and/or PVR stuff, and just having a nice quiet Sunday. Oh, and browsing through the initial schedule for GenCon 50 that will go on-line in just over half an hour.

Geez, it’s the Friday before CanGames already.

This means that the 2017 edition of CanGames, the local Ottawa gaming convention being held at the Rideau Curling Club, is merely seven (7) (!!) days away, as it begins on Friday (the 19th of May). Hope to see folks from Ottawa and the surroundings, as well as folks from farther away, attending the convention.

And here’s just a reminder of what I’ll be running this year at CanGames.

*****
The Statuette of Zhar Bagra

Time: Friday, 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm
Number of Players: 5
Description: While on Coriolis Station, your player characters are asked by a scholar to help him retrieve an artefact that needs to be returned to the planet Kua, below. Why do so many people want the artefact, and what sort of intrigue have you got yourselves into this time? Try out this new, unique science fiction rpg that is basically “Arabian Nights in space”. Crew a starship and explore the ancient mysteries of The Third Horizon!

The Dixmude Affair
Game: Primeval RPG
Time: Saturday, 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Number of Players: 6
Description: After returning to the present through an Anomaly to find the timeline terribly wrong, you and the other player characters learn that history changed in 1923 with the fate of the airship Dixmude being altered. Can you fix the timeline, or is it too late?

Summer Break and Killer Birds
Game: Tales From the Loop RPG
Time: Saturday,7:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Description: Summertime in Sweden. Boredom and bliss in equal measure. But something’s wrong. It all starts with a talking bird, and soon you’re involved in a nefarious plot. Can you solve the Mystery before it’s too late? Tales From the Loop is a game of roleplaying in the ‘80s that never was, based on artist Simon Stalenhag’s paintings of Swedish 1980s suburbia, populated by fantastic machines and strange beasts. You play teenagers solving Mysteries connected to the Loop.

Dark Flowers

Time: Sunday, 2:00 pm – 6 pm
Number of Players: 5
Description: While passing through the Dabaran system on a routine trade mission, your characters are contacted by The Foundation, and asked to proceed to a set of coordinates and investigate the disappearance of a missing ship carrying one of its researchers, a professor Siyab Dahiljaba. What will you find? Try out this new, unique science fiction rpg that is basically “Arabian Nights in space”. Crew a starship and explore the ancient mysteries of The Third Horizon!

Hope to see some of my LJ, WordPress, and Twitter friends and others (of course) at some of the games I’ll be running next weekend. 🙂

Just thought I should mention here, and in a couple of other places, that I’ve added a fourth game slot at CanGames 2017, to be held at the Rideau Curling Club the long Victoria Day weekend here in Ottawa (May 19th to the 21st).

Here’s the listing of the additional game I’ll be running. This is the full listing for the game.

The listing for the game will not be found in the physical convention booklet since I didn’t add it to the schedule in time for that, but will appear (hopefully soon) in the on-line schedule at the CanGames website. You can pre-register for the game on-line, and there will be a sign-up sheet for the game at the convention, made available 1/2 an hour before the game is due to start.

I’m looking forward to running this terrific RPG at the convention, and hope that some of you will sign up to play Tales From the Loop with me at the convention. Hope to see you there! 🙂

Games I’ll Be Running at CanGames, 2017 February 23, 2017

For those who are interested, the early(bird) version of the gaming schedule for this year’s CanGames, to be held May 19th – 21st at the Rideau Curling Club here in Ottawa, has been posted up to the website. (You can find the schedule here, as they’re using the on-line schedule manager Sched once again this year.) Note that early Registration for CanGames 2017 is due to open on February 25th, so that’s a good thing.

Now that they’ve been confirmed, without further ado, here’s the schedule of games that I’ll be running at the convention. Since CanGames is using a piece of software that limits the blurb to thirty (30) words, I’ve included here the full blurb about each scenario. 🙂

For those interested in playing in any of these games, there are six (6) player spots open for Primeval RPG session, and five (5) player spots open for each of the two Coriolis – The Third Horizon RPG sessions. So if you’re interested in playing in one of the games I’m running at CanGames 2017 this year, please sign up early for the games, as slots may not be available at the convention itself.

Hope to see folks at the convention! 🙂
