While I wasn't able to go to Gen Con, I do have a "local convention":http://xenocon.weebly.com that is drawing near. I tend to run a lot of games at that con:
* "*The Grindhouse Arena*":http://forums.obsidianportal.com/comments.php?DiscussionID=3971&page=1#Item_18 - I'm adding a new twist so I have a bit more prep than usual for this, but that's mostly just new signage. I'll bring 50-75 PC gladiators again.
* *Walt's Angels 3: The Mouse Strikes Back* (Savage Worlds) - _Once upon a time there were some princesses. But when their happily-ever-afters turned out to be fairy tales, they came to work for me. My name... is Walt. (cue the cheesy 70's theme music)_ This is actually the third and final episode of Walt's Angels. This time, they're not only badass ex-princesses. Now they're badass ex-princess _jedi_* and they have to stop "Emperor Mickey":http://www.ottens.co.uk/gatehouse/2012/08/dieselpunk-and-the-shadow-of-nazi-aesthetics/nazi-mickey-mouse-by-bopchara/ from taking over the world.
* *Terror in Paradise* (Dread RPG) - _You've just arrived at the most secluded island in the world for a two-week tropical resort vacation. Wait. Why are people screaming??_ I fell in love with Dread. Its Jenga-tower mechanic works so well for a suspense-filled horror game.
* *Fuzzy Heroes* (Fuzzy Heroes) - Stuffed animals vs. action figures in a simple, inexpensive and fun tabletop "miniatures" combat game. I first played this with my then-five-year-old son, and we had a total blast. I've run it at the convention before, and I've been asked to do so again. _Hell_ yeah.
And, y'know, I'm also running my "Ptolus":https://ptolus-city-by-the-spire-by-bryan.obsidianportal.com/ campaign. So there's that, too.
What's everyone else running/planning these days?
Ptolus, City by the Spire - 2016 Campaign of the Year
