GenCon 2019 – The Games

With GenCon creeping closer, I thought I’d mention the games I’m scheduled to play and my expectations.

THUR (8/1)

  • “Data Breach” – Starfinder 1E – 0800 to 1300. Since this is basically Pathfinder in Space, I don’t expect it’ll be anything too weird for me.
  • “Assault on the Dungeon of the Pognomancer” – 13th Age – 1400 to 1800. I know nothing of 13th Age so I don’t know what to expect here at all. Playing alongside two of the people I’m driving up to GenCon with.
  • “Champions of the Ivory Throne 34” – L5R – 1900 to 2300. Similarly, I don’t know much about L5R beyond a little bit about the setting, so I don’t know what to expect there. Playing alongside one of the people I’m driving up to GenCon with.

FRI (8/2)

  • “Extreme Safari” – Mongoose 2E Traveller – 0900 to 1330. This is a required game for me as I’ll be running M2T in the near future. I wanted to play it before running it, you know?
  • “Cupbearers” – The Expanse RPG – 1400 to 1800. Love the setting. Know nothing about the game. Still, looking forward to it.
  • “Blue on Blue” – Mutant City Blues” – 1800 to 2200. A Gumshoe game and I’ve played a little bit of Night’s Black Agents, so I think I know what to expect here.

SAT (8/3)

  • “Red Hand of Doom” – D&D 5E – 0900 to 1900 (!) – that’s right. Ten hours. I know enough about 5E to be ready for this … I think. Playing alongside two of the people I’m driving up to GenCon with.
  • “Castaway” – Cypher – 2000 to 0000. I have no idea about this game but I’m playing alongside one of the people I’m driving up to GenCon with who is really looking forward to this.

SUN (8/4)

  • “Living on the Edge: Purple Exodus 6: Piercing the Veil” – Star Wars Edge of the Empire – 0800 to 1200. I know the setting, but not this rule system.
  • “Rescue in the Dark” – HârnMaster – 1200 to 1600. I’ve glanced over some of the setting but am mostly ignorant of the rules. Playing alongside one of the people I’m driving up to GenCon with.

This is 47.5 hours of gaming. Wow.
