Wow. Let’s see. I was at Gen Con and didn’t get ahead on my #RPGaDAY posts. Where did I leave off?
Okay, then. The topic for that day is “Which RPG do you enjoy adapting the most?” Well, that’s an odd one. I mean, I could see how someone’s answer is something like how they use game X to play Star Wars (or Shadowrun), but for the most part I’m thinking the real answers to this question is about generic game systems, like Fate or GURPS.
There’s a lot going on with the Gen Con experience. I am home, not attending this year, and I miss the show. I miss the experience.
Back in 2014, I almost went to Gen Con with my friends Ron and Vern as a revival of This Just In From Gen Con with the blessings1 of the TJI stakeholders. But things out of our control happened and, well. There it lies.
However, my goal with that year’s TJI would have been to bring the experience of the convention to the listeners. That list of experiences is a good place to start.
