Agreed (and really enjoying this Winter Season).
One way to play a lot of games at a con is to run a lot of games. I really enjoyed running a game at last year's PaizoCon and I'm itching to run some more. I also have a bunch of other RPGs that I never get to play that I'd like to run.
I definitely plan on submitting the Terror in the Colonies adventure I ran last year (a 3rd level Pathfinder adventure set in the Shadows over Vathak campaign setting).
Beyond that, I'm also interested in submitting as an event 2-3 of the following games.
Silhouette of a Shadow (my 1st level Pathfinder SoV adventure published by Fat Goblin Games).
These games will be submitted as lottery events. Just curious to see what interest is out there for games and what people would like to put in for.
And the fun shows. Great Work, John.
Thanks for the review and I'm glad you enjoyed it! As you mentioned in your review, I definitely strive to not only make the village interesting and flavorful but also to provide the GM with enough seeds/plot hooks to easily expand into full adventures.
There's a certain Rise of the Runelord mini- forget the name (a roguish human male dualwielding a rapier and dagger) that Snaps just loves to grab and carry off with her. Luckily, he is fairly common in the set.
Snaps has also trained my gaming group to feed her treats. She's shy, so the vet recommended giving her treats when strangers came over. Well, my friends come over every other week and always sit in the same place. Since Phil was closest to the treats, I had him give them to her. Now, when they show up, she comes over multiple times for treats and, of course, gets them. She does let people pet her a little bit, so it's working.
Cool and thanks- those are all ones I designed!

Cool, thanks for the info.
One of Gundam model kits came with an advertisement for a bunch of newly released blueray boxed sets that seem to line up with what Rightstuf is releasing (Zeta, Victory). Also, it mentions Stardust Memory, so I'm hoping that comes to the US as well.

Is Victory any good? My only familiarity with it is two characters from the Gundam Warriors 3 video game.
Found this older article about Rightstuf and their Gundam releases. I'm very happy to read about Zeta- Netflix didn't have the last ten episodes so I watched the movies which have a different ending. ZZ is interesting as I haven't read good things about that series even though it's set in the UC. Reviews say it's such a different tone (more light-hearted). But UC Gundam, so I'll get it. I hope they'll eventually do Char's Counterattack.

Yeah, still haven't seen Char's Counterattack cuz the prices are crazy and Netflix is spotty with the Gundam they have in stock (and half the time the discs I get are old and cracked). I did get a good price on the Zeta movies but looks like the price has gone up on Amazon. UC isn't so bad with the DVDs but the blurays swing from expensive to crazy expensive.
Rented Mobile Suit Gundam Origins II this weekend. It was pretty good but I liked 1 better. This one focused on Artesia/Sayla primarily, so less action- felt more like a filler episode between 1 and and 3 (which I'm guessing based on the the timeline, will definitely have more action). Lots of little cameos in this 2, though. I also hope we get a lower priced State side DVD or Bluray instead of the $100 "collectible" one.

Thanks for the review and glad you enjoyed it! Creighton and I both wanted it to have a classic pulp feel to the empire as well. I read a complete Howard's Conan collection before even attempting to write this.

For those of you with Netflix streaming only- it recently added Durarara!! and the 1st half of Durarara X2!!. It's got quite a bit of everything in it but I enjoy it quite a bit.
I lied slightly- Netflix has the 1st cour of Durarara x2!!. Cour 2 just finished and I didn't realize there is a third cour airing next year.
For some reason, the van of some minor characters has the characters from The Irregular at Magic High School painted on the side. Not sure w hat the connection is. There's also a cardboard cut-out in the beginning that looks suspiciously like Holo (I think there's also some other in jokes by the same two otaku characters).

Just saw this! Thanks for the review and kind words. This one pulled from a lot of childhood memories and experiences spent on a certain fogbound island where I did pace the widow walks, visit whaling museums, and read books on the local hauntings. And thank you to Raging Swan Press for letting me write something with such a heavy dose of New England horror in it.
Also, I'm glad you pointed this out-
I've been meaning to do a blog on designing for the village backdrops but you hit the nail on the head- one of the key elements to a good village backdrop, for me, is to present at least 2-3 complications with the appropriate NPCs and locations so that a GM could essentially use the village as a short adventure.
A lot of my approach now to these village backdrops is based on reading a lot more "rules-lite" and story driven, narrative RPGs where the GM is encouraged to wing it and develop the plot based on the PCs actions and what they find interesting. So, I'm very happy you picked up how I tried to incorporate that design philosophy into the village (which means I did it right!). My next village backdrop is very much not horror but keeps the same design principles in mind.
An indie film company is slated to do a Colour Out of Space adaption-
What Lovecraft story (besides Guillermo's maybe someday At the Mountains of Madness) would you like to see adapted for the big screen (if any)?
Even though my Kingmaker campaign is on the last AP volume, yeah, I'm going to have to throw one some templates or class levels on this monster and send a bunch of them after the PCs. Love the imagery and the feel of this one- kind of like a lower-CR wendigo (a nice monster but at its CR, more than likely won't get as used as a hollow one). Nice job!
This one reminded me a bit of one of the monsters from RPG Superstar 2012- the abandoned one- an undead monster that seeks to isolate its prey from others. However, I think the mechanics in the tatterghoul are bit more streamlined and sound, making the idea of an isolating undead work.
This is a super creepy monster that reminds me of Japanese horror films. Good work on this!
Yep that's it and thanks! And wow...I've seen Fate/Zero and I completely disassociated that one episode from the whole series. Must have made an impression on me!
Looking for assistance in identifying an anime I watched a few years ago- I think through streaming on Netflix. I don't remember it being a series, so maybe it was OVA or movie...? I'll spoiler the details below if anyone wants to assist me. It involved vampires.
It started off on an island in Japan. A father who was a scientist was experimenting with vampire DNA. Something happened and the community was infected. This female vampire hunter showed up and killed the vampires, including the scientist and her daughter who become infected (I think). The vampire hunter rescues the scientist's son, who is the main protagonist of the story.
The protagonist goes to live with the vampire hunter who is cold and distance but she teaches him how to fight vampires.
In the present day, the female vampire hunter kills a powerful vampire lord on an airplane. However, he was carrying something so that when he died, he started affecting people. The rest of the movie involves the protagonist and female vampire hunter fighting off this outbreak. It ends, I think, with the female vampire hunter sacrificing her life to crash an airplane into the boat. I think...
Thank you to anyone who can tell me the title! I'll probably feel stupid when I learn what it is :).
