Gen Con!

It is only two days away!

Can you tell I’m excited?

I will be arriving at the convention on Wednesday and getting all settled in for 4 days of gaming. I thought I would share my schedule while I am at Gen Con in case anyone out there has time available and was looking for something to do.


1 pm – Orc Stomp 5k Fun Run Packet Pickup. This event runs from 1-3 and gives runners the ability to pick up there bib and goody bag ahead of time. This way you can have your shirt with you when you show up for the run the next day.

4 pm – Shadowrun GM Bootcamp: Basic SEM1453649. This event is an introduction to running games in the newest edition of Shadowrun. I’m using it as a primer to get myself up to speed on what has changed in this new edition. I love the setting for this game and look forward to seeing what they have to say about running it.

7 pm – Look Under the Hat SEM1454398. This is a question and answer session with the top names at Evil Hat. I plan on attending to see what is up at the Hat and see what new surprises they have in store for us.


6 am – Orc Stomp 5k Fun Run. I know, I am getting up awfully early at Gen con to go running. It is fora good charity and it gets games up and moving which is another good thing as well. We at Ideology of Madness are one of the sponsors of the race and I am proud of this and hope to see some fans of the website there as well. #teamIOM

2 pm – Perspectives on Making your First Game CAH Deathbabies SEM1458367. This is a seminar that talks aour Games by Playdate and how they took part in the Cards Against Humanity Deathmatch and what they learned from it. I’m always fascinated by the creative process behind game creation and I’m looking forward to the insights garnered from this process.


10 am – Whats up with the New World of Darkness SEM1459337. This is a question and Answer session to inform people on what is going on with the new World of Darkness. I am looking forward to finding out what the plan is for this line as I am a fan and their focus has seemed to be on the old World of Darkness as of late.

3 pm – Pinnacle Seminar SEM1457164. Pinnacle is the publisher of Savage Worlds, the game system that underlies the Knights of Reignsborough. I’m going to discover what is in the future of this game system and tell them about this awesome podcast.

6 pm – Queer as a Three-Sided Die SEM1454153. This is an event organized by the gaming luminaries to discuss LGBT issues in gaming. Always well worth attending and nice to see how the big and small names in the industry treat us.

This year I am not running any games and have no games to play scheduled as of yet. I am leaving myself open to be able to play games with friends from across the country as well as spend more time in the vendor Hall looking for that new things I may have missed last year.

If you are at Gen Con take the time to send me a message on Twitter(@grimgoroth). I am always up for meeting fans of Ideology of Madness.
