We’re back from Gencon! Check out tomorrow’s podcast for Benoit’s thoughts and experiences (among other things). Until then, here’s some Gencon goodness in the Weekly Roundup (plus some other stuff).
First, we’ll do a quick roundup of bloggers that blogged about their experiences at Gencon this week:
- Newbie DM
- This Is My Game
- Dread Gazebo (via his personal blog)
- Dragonheart 305 (blogged every day from the con)
- I Slay the Dragon (plus a guest post from a Gencon newbie)
- Undergopher Central podcast from the con, linked is the first of several
- Chatty DM (via Critical Hits) added 8/15
- Initiative Or What? added 8/15
- Flagons and Dragons added 8/15
Also, we would be remiss if we did not provide a link to the Ennie winners (click through to the pdf). Congratulations to everyone who won!
Finally, Critical Hits did a great summary of the Wizards of the Coast New Products seminar. If you want to know what’s in the pipeline over at WotC, check it out. Also, Alphastream included a few links on his blog to followup information on the new products, as well as his thoughts.
And then some non-Gencon articles we noticed:
Every DM knows that inspiration for their campaign is all around us. From paintings, to literature, to actual history. If you’re looking for historical inspiration, check out Illuminerdy‘s primer on the ancient Mexican city of Chichen Itza, complete with campaign and plot hook ideas.
At-Will wrote about why it’s hard to make hard encounters.
Finally, where current events and gaming meet, we find this story about some London looters and a Games Workshop store. (Edit: We’re not sure if this story is for real)
