I know it's 6 months out, but badges went on sale this last Sunday. I just got my 4-day one. Who else is going to Indianapolis for GenCon in August?

you know I am, I think this time the game I'll run will involve the secret project you saw. Just need to come up with a game for it

Just put in for my PTO during Gen Con. I'll be there along with the rest of the Palladium Crew. This time making sure no schedule adventures
get assigned the wrong time.

Ya, I was looking at signing up for that until I saw the hours... can't believe they wouldn't let you fix it! I still got to partake in the HU game you ran!

I'm jealous. I was thinking about going this year but I don't know what my job situation is going to be so I don't know if I will be off that weekend.

I plan to go on and try and see what PB games are being run just to torture myself.

Is the general public, or at least those of us on the boards, going to find out what this secret project you keep mentioning?

its nothing official, just a little side thing my group does occasionally. Its on our podcast.

As for what setting, probably fantasy, though Heroes is my stock in trade.

OK, I have just seen you reference this before so it peaked my interest. I will take a look at the podcast.

Two fantasy and one heroes. Yeah I said I was done doing Heroes Unlimited games until some
changes get done (Hardware Unlimited) but it just occurred to me it's been almost 30 years when
my cousin, some friends of his, and myself tried to create out own comic book company. A lot of
the super heroes/villains I've created were born during that period. Having failed to make the comic
book dream, my new goal is find a way to make those characters see print by giving them life in
Palladium, whether it's in convention adventures, printed in the remaining Rifters, or cannon NPCs
in Heroes Unlimited sourcebooks. The PF adventure on saturday that goes for 6 hours will be done
this time for sure. 11 AM TO 5 P.M.

Just bought my badge and booked my hotel. I ran one game last year and had two others, but they were no show. I think this year I will only run one or two.

I wouldn't throw a fit if you ran a BtS game, you know.

Sounds intriguing! If you end up running it, I'm in.

I am thinking of running a miniatures game based off the Juicer Uprising. The game rules would be similar to the old WotC Star Wars miniatures rules. I have the props, I would just have to develop and test the scenarios. Thoughts anyone?

I will be running:

BTS: "For We Are Many"
Rifts: "A Friend Indeed"
Dead Reign: "Detention"

Jack Burton, I know you played in at least one of these at the Open House

Reagren Wright, I expect at least on Hotel game with you and Silva is playing his hamster in my Rifts game

My wife and I played "All Quiet on the Western... What?" She complained that she had to continually heal me after I kept getting mangled by all the fun stuff I got myself into. I've never played "For We Are Many." I ought to check that out!

I thought you were in my Rifts game as well. I guess I was mistaken. Be quick though. "For We Are Many" only has 6 spots.

I'm going this year with the whole family. My eldest daughter wants to play in a Palladium Fantasy game. I'm hoping to play in some Beyond the Supernatural games.

If any of you are running palladium games at Gen Con and have not sent an email to ambassadors@palladiumbooks.com, please do so now.

If you submitted your game already, PM or email me your email address and the event ID. I can then get the game moved to Palladium account and potentially get you a GM badge that you can use to refund the cost of your regular attendee badge.

Hey Sardukar,

I just wanted to say Thank You to you and EVERY fellow GM for running Palladium games at Gen Con!
We appreciate all of your creative efforts, preparation, time, energy and the fun you bring and share with the gaming community!

I read your post and was concerned about you experiencing "no shows" at some of your events. My goal is to try and promote and boost the awareness of GMs running Palladium games at all conventions.

Inquired about this issue and learned that it is best to get all of your games properly submitted before February 15th of that corresponding Gen Con's year to ensure that your games will be posted in the Gen Con program. Doing so often (not always) leads to more successful turn outs. Games that do not make it into the program can be more of a hit or miss as there are less people who are aware that they are running.

Another part of what Palladium can do to help is by promoting your events in the Palladium weekly update. Typically we request the following:

1. A solid paragraph synopsis of what your gaming event will entail. A good adventure write up goes a long way in informing potential players what type of game they could experience, and can draw in many players. I can't stress this part enough.
2. How many player slots are available.
3. Duration of the game.
4. Start time and end time.
5. Pre-gens only or available or Player characters welcomed.
6. Maturity and experience requirements, if any.

We plan to post the games of Gen Con 2019 in the future weekly updates (as things get closer to Gen Con) to best assist and promote the adventures at Gen Con.

Hopes this helps in the future and please keep up the awesome Gaming!

Cheers,
Chuck

Looks like you're the only game in town! No other BtS games are scheduled. If everything works out, which it should, my buddy and I will put in for it when the events open up for registration.

I'll be at GenCon! I'm excited.

I'd be in for some Beyond the Supernatural, but... it's scheduled for 10am-2pm, which means it overlaps with "Ken and Robin Talk about Stuff", which I really wanted to go see. I hope you folks have fun!

I'm actually running some Dungeon Crawl Classics during the convention. See you there!

Although it's not listed, I am running a second session of the BTS adventure at 3 p.m. that same day. So, you might be able to play in that one.

Next year, would you be able to provide GenCon with the GM's name for each individual game so that information can be posted along with all the other info about the event? That way, if there was a GM we really enjoyed playing with, we'll be able to see what game they're running and buy tickets for it when the events are opened for registration. Thanks!
