So, today I finally decided for certain that I’m going to GenCon Indy this year. I’d been heavily leaning towards going anyway — both to have fun and to meet some of the neat people I’ve been interacting with online via Story Games and whatnot — but it was when Guy Shalev came on AIM and said that he was looking for hotel roommates that I decided for sure that I’m going. Registration doesn’t open until February 11, and there’s the matter of plane tickets to contend with (I’m probably going to have to fly out of SFO, since it’ll literally be cheaper than SJC by $100 to $150), but at least I don’t have to worry about lodgings.
Over the next few months I need to figure out what I want to do at the con, and in particular what I want to run.
Maid RPG is definitely, absolutely on the list. A friend of mine has been showing my partially translated version to some of his other friends and co-workers, and I keep being blown away by just how much people not only accept the concept, but fall in love with it. At this rate I’m going to have to start looking into how I might be able to license and publish it for real…
Other possibilities include:
- Mascot-tan (which, bizarrely, seems to have something of a cult following)
- My Fudge-based Halo RPG. (Still need to actually try it out with my friends)
- My Magic Shop Risus one-shot (“Slayers meets Are You Being Served?“)
