Sean and co are probably still striking the set, but let's talk about Big Bad Con here! I'm Joey; I met a good deal of you this weekend. It was an absolute pleasure. Looking forward to next year!
Anyway, tell us what awesome stuff you played at the con! Maybe leave constructive feedback, too, because I think this was Sean's first production and I'm sure he would appreciate hearing what we want for next year.
I'm extremely exhausted but eager to talk with you lot, so my contribution will be rather short. I'll be back.
The On Demand room was amazing, constantly bumpin' at all hours. Near the end on Sunday we planted ourselves at an open table and got to try out my impulsively-acquired copy of Do: Pilgrims of the Flying Temple. Do is probably my favorite game since Apocalypse World. We broke the mold a little bit and played sort of a heavy metal version of the letter "Towards Darkness" by Myles Cocoran, but it worked out great! The lighthearted slapstick element definitely made it across; we didn't have to work to that end at all. We also told a dark story about a world headed for the howling dark, and how Pilgrims Lush Warrior (the drunken master), Voracious Helmet (eater of Melanie's cookies, prior), and Fierce Monk (wise in the ways of Trouble) drove off the foreign invaders and saved the village from a great beast of heaven. It was rad! We also came up with silly pilgrim names like "Bitchin' Ladykiller", who gets into trouble by being totally rad and helps people by getting the ladies. Sorry, Daniel.
The scheduled games were also rad; plenty of Apocalypse/Dungeon World to go around. I would say more on this front, but my energy is rapidly depleting. The con was a great time, I'm exhausted, big thanks to Sean and the volunteers and Endgame and all the others for making it happen!
You guys can take it from here, I hope.
PS Hamish, that was an uproariously fun game of 3:16. Cheers, man!
