Gen Con Fiasco Playset

Dangerous Games Fiasco Playset.inddBully Pulpit Games has released their latest playset for Fiasco, consisting of a series of stories surrounding Gen Con in Dangerous Games. Written by Matt Forbeck, it’s available for download from the Bully Pulpit Games website here.

Gen Con. The largest tabletop gaming convention in the Western Hemisphere. A gathering of the particular branch of the geek tribe that likes to get its game on analog-style, rolling dice, pushing lead, and slapping down cards.

With something shy of 50,000 people descending on Indianapolis for a long, hot weekend in the middle of August, Gen Con is the size of a small city. A gamer-tastic Brigadoon that pops up on Wednesday in the Indiana Convention Center and then vanishes on Sunday, until next year.

They call it the Best Four Days in Gaming. It might also be the deadliest.

DriveThruRPG: Legend: Citadel Beyond the North Wind

In the World of Xoth, there is a land far to the north, past the black hills of Lamu and beyond the frozen moors of Tharag Thule. It is a dreary land of mist and thunder, and the white people of Yg have dwelt there since ancient times.

Across this land, on towering hilltops and beside fog-shrouded lakes, stand somber granite castles, and therein dwell the princelings and tyrants of Yg with their countless thralls and slaves and subjects.

The free men of Yg tremble when fools dare to utter the name of Arkanth Mal, for he is the greatest and oldest of the tyrants of this primeval land. He is the witch-king of Galuga, grand master of necromancy and alchemy.
