With that said, I think I may of over done it running 4 events. 4 event is what I have done in the past and it gets your free badge. But after last year, I didn’t get to explore the gaming and exhibition halls as much as I wanted. So I have to strike some sort of balance. So I think I will run only 2 or 3 events next year. Free badge be damned!
As for those events, they all went well. I posted about each on google+.
After running 2 Savage Worlds events I’m sold on the system. I’ve played d20 based games for a long time, so I’m a bit jaded there, so I won’t say it’s better than d20, but if I had a choice of playing a d20 vs SW game today, I would choose the latter.
When I did have time, I visited the gaming and exhibition halls. Below are links to my photos.
Again, didn’t have a ton of time. So I missed a lot. One thing I missed the most was not seeing all the costumes. All my friends told me about the good ones and I was envious.
Other highlights and things that stuck out.
I’m already looking forward to next year! Number 22.
A funny thing happened a few months later. The GM that ran that very event contacted me. Gotta love the intertubes! Check out the rest of the story.
Introducing Wild Card Creator. Any PDF, Any Setting, No Extra Cost!
Journeyman Games has just announced a Kickstarter for their Wild Card Creator, a computer program that helps gamers quickly and easily design characters for the Savage Worlds tabletop roleplaying game. The program enables you to generate, save, and print characters in both stat block and character sheet formats, enabling you to access them whenever you need, in a fraction of the time it takes to do it by hand!
Because Wild Card Creator comes pre-loaded with the full text of Savage Worlds Deluxe, you can start making characters right away. But what if you want to make characters for a supplementary setting like Deadlands, Agents of Oblivion, Hellfrost, or any of several dozen other settings? Other character creators would make you type it all in yourself or force you to pony up $5-$10 for the same content you already own. Not Wild Card Creator.
If you own any published Savage Worlds PDFs, Wild Card Creator will be able to import any new Races, Edges, Hindrances, Gear, and other character options without you paying anything more! If you've got the PDF, you've got the content. Pinnacle Entertainment Group and 14 other companies have already given permission to allow Wild Card Creator to work seamlessly with their full range of PDFs, so your favorite settings are sure to be supported.
Wild Card Creator will be available for Mac, Windows, and Linux and has an estimated release date of November 2012.
One thing you might also notice, other than a slight site redesign, is that there is no upcoming section anymore. That's by design. I had a backlog of Darwin's World and Abandon All Hope content that took me the better part of two years to finish. I made it a point to commit to nothing more after that. It's not that I don't want to do anymore books. I just want to work on some other projects, some RPG related and some not.
So what will I be doing here? Here's my personal goals for the near future.
I will still publish books from time to time, but I won't announce it until it's nearly done. Most likely support for Darwin's Worlds or Abandon All Hope, but more on that in a future blog.
It's not ideal. When I saw it works, I don't mean it's flawless. But it's usable. Which is important to me since I spend a good deal of time these days on my phone and tablet.
Anyhow, I've been trying my best to clear my plate the last year so I can do more blogging and work on other projects. Getting this site working on mobile was one of those steps. Except a total resigned sometime in the not to distant future.
Gencon approaches and I want to continue with my gencon blogs I started last year. This is year 21 for me!
If you find something not working on the website due to these changes, please let me know asap (webmaster at rpgobjects.com).
