Back from CoreCon!

The convention itself was wonderful, and I truly enjoyed it. There were also some extra's for us - the meeting with Mr. S.M. Stirling and his lovely wife, Jan. Getting to know Kier Salmon, as well as meeting other people who we haven't seen for a year or more. But one of the high points for us had to be when Sam ran the demo game of D6 Epic, set in S.M. Stirling's Emberverse with Mr. Stirling himself taking part.

It was something of a nerve wrecking time for Sam, who hadn't sat at a game table as GM in some years, but after a few moments of nerves he settled down and the game progressed. Not only progressed but went damn well. There was quite a mix of players at the table, from experienced, to returning, to never played before, and not one of them appeared (to me) to stumble or lose their place in the game.

Once the game was over, and it was only a two hour session, Sam stayed behind to talk to a few people. We've now had offers from people who wish to GM games at conventions. Ones from people wishing to write for the system. One other has offered to run a game in his con suite next year! (Thank you Dan of the Fairy Room!!)

All in all it went better than expected and we've returned full of ideas for story lines for the games. Books we need to work on, tweaks for the core rule book, future rule books and lots, lots more. So it looks like there will be more updates about the system and adventures!

CoreCon, for those who don't know, takes place in Moorhead, just across the river from Fargo. It's a fantastic regional con, small but growing. Well organized and lots of con suites!
