SHU, MG, IGE–Acronyms Assemble!

16Dec08

I’ve got the proof of Serial Homicide Unit in my hands. It needs a few tweaks, but on the whole, it looks good. We won’t be able to ship physical copies before the end of the year, but January 15 looks VERY likely. Yay! Preorders will open in the next week.

There was lots of noise and chaos in the house yesterday. None of it needed my help, so I read through my PDF of the Mouse Guard RPG. Wow! I love the way Luke and company keep their games firmly rooted in sweat and mud. In this game, mud can even kill you!

Plus, they’ve streamlined the Burning Wheel architecture down to its most essential parts. I playtested it back at Dreamation and commented that it seemed like an implementation of Burning Wheel that could actually fit into my life. Reading it, I can see that I was right. I’ll be running two sessions of it at Dreamation.

I’ll also be running two sessions of Serial Homicide Unit. And a session of Mechaton for good measure. I’m toying around with possibly running a session of Ganakagok, but I’m not sure.

Speaking of which, deadline for IGE registration is less than three weeks away and we’ve only had a handful of people sign up! C’mon, people. It’s the Indie Games Explosion at Dreamation! Run some fun!

  1. I plead Christmas! I have intentions to maybe run some DRYH at Dreamation, but I haven’t nailed anything down yet.

    • Bah! If I had my way, everyone who went around with “I plead Christmas” on his lips would be boiled in his own pudding and buried with a stake of holly through his heart!
      I mean, what’s next? Christmas-themed pulp game supplements?
      Seriously, just don’t miss the Jan. 4 deadline and all is good.

  2. I’ve got myself and three kids registered for Dreamation. Cassie is looking forward to returning and Alex/Tasha are excited for their first time. However, with the various parental duties I’m not going to run anything.

    • Children? Are there no workhouses?
      Kat’s considering running some off-the-books D&D4 for you (and kids) specifically. But don’t say that I mentioned anything, I might end up with coal in my stocking!

        Which is why you posted it on a public journal? 😀
        That would be very cool!!

    I’m very intrigued by SHU, definitely advertise when/where to (pre)order it.

  4. Wisconsin = Too Far from Dreamation!
    I actually do work for an indie game company. It just LOOKS like a big mainstream company. Honest.

    • Next thing you’ll try to tell me you have a wife and child to support! ::rolls eyes::
      But, see what happens when you move away from the bosom of the Pennsylvania homeland? You miss out on the fun.
      Seriously, have a great holiday and give my best to the family. We hope to see you at Origins.
