Congenial - and possibly off line over the weekend
I'll be at Congenial, the Unicon / RPG con in Cambridge, over the weekend.
Please note that I may not be on line much during the convention - the site apparently won't have WiFi, and I'll be dependent on public access points etc. This may lead to delays in processing Forgotten Futures registrations and other mail etc., for which many apologies.
I'm currently involved in three programme items, all on Saturday:
Saturday 11:00, Council Room: So you want to be a Mad Scientist?
Two teams of would-be mad scientists compete to prove which are the bright sparks, and which are the missing links. It's not rocket science, it's a silly game brought to you by Peter Wareham and Gwen Funnell.
Saturday 13:00, Council Room: … never survives contact with the players
How to cope with this, and work around it, while always remembering the players’ inevitable combination of twisted ingenuity and failing to spot the bloody obvious.
Saturday 17:00, Long Room: Only Connect
A quiz about connections, presented by Diana Cox.
At some point I hope to run two scenarios - probably Jellystone (for a fanfic RPG I'm developing based on Diana: Warrior Princess rules, and Bone Hunters (previous title Marooned on Jupiter) for Forgotten Futures. I ran both at Dragonmeet last year, and Marooned... at Continuum three weeks ago, but hopefully there will be some players there who don't know them.
Hope I'll see some of you there!
