On July 31, one of the con-organizers posted that they needed some more panelists for the Con, and that anyone who participated in 3 Panels, got free admission to the Con. As a result I spoke at the "Intellectual Property Rights", "Beyond Harry Potter - Sci-Fi/Fantasy for Young Adults", & "Web Comics" panels. I actually offered to be a panelist as a lark; I didn't think they would take me up on it. )

One of the sites I frequent (as some of you know) is EN World. It is an RPG site, focusing primarily (but not exclusively) on D20 games. They have existed in one form or another for 7 years now. (and I have been visiting it for 7 years now.) Their current "claim to fame" is that they are the organizers of the Official GEN CON Award ceremony ("The ENnies", by the way voting for this year's "ENnies" is currently open, and will be open until July 30th).

However that's not my topic for the day. Another great part of EN World is the Gamedays. Gamdays are "mini-cons" for ENWorlders (and friends) to get together for several 1-shot games. There have been gamedays in Chicago, Ohio, North Carolina, New York, Maryland, and luckily for me Massachusetts. We have roughly 50 ENWorlders who make up the regular Boston Area Gameday (usually only about half that number are available for a given event).

Somehow EN World Gamedays has attracted many really great DM's. I have played in some of the most memorable sessions at gamedays. In fact I am only aware of 1 time where a lame DM ran a game at a gameday (and I promise to do better next time).

The reason I am going on about this, is that the next EN World Boston Area Gameday is LESS THAN 20 HOURS AWAY.

I'll be playing:
"Neptune Adventure" (System : Alternity)
"Underoo Avengers" a team of 8 year old superheros (System: BASH)
A Serenity 'verse adventure (System: Cinematic Unisystem)
And a yet to be named D&D 3.5 game

Some of the other games going on are:
All Flesh Must Be Eaten
Discworld Game (System: Gurps)
Feng Shui (no not interior decorating)
End of the World Timeshare (System: Fudge)
Paranoia
Robotech
Shadowrun

It is a two day event, so don't expect to hear much from me till Monday

Hello. It's time to talk about something very near and dear to my heart.

The ENnie Awards!

The ENnie Awards celebrate excellence in tabletop gaming. They are given annually at Gen Con Indianapolis, and represent the voice of the gaming community. more )

I realize some of the people reading this are not themselves gamers, but if you know someone who is a gamer, please pass the word.

The more voices heard the better the final results will reflect the desires of the gaming community.


* Thanks to Seanen for “inspiration”.
