Gen Con Report – The Big Overview Part 2

The Big Overview (continued)

To continue detailing the tabletop role-playing publishers with map locations #13 – 24. Please see The Big Overview Part 1 for the map in reference.

Map Location #13 – Fat Dragon Games

Publisher: Fat Dragon Games
Booth: 809
Convention Information: Fat Dragon Games has not posted any announcements about special features or previews, but I suspect they will be focusing upon their new line of 15mm terrain E-Z Battlefields. Look for their continuing E-Z Dungeons and Tiles lines and don’t forget to checkout any Castle Winterhawk setups they may have on display. Depending upon what they have, I plan to take lots of pictures of what your tabletop terrain could look like. Their booth is located across from Konami and Fantasy Flight Games between Exhibit Hall I and J Entrances.

Map Location #14 – Flying Buffalo

Publisher: Flying Buffalo
Booth: 501
Convention Information: Flying Buffalo is pre-releasing a new Catalyst product titled City of the Gods Map Pack. It’s due to release in November and carries an MSRP of $19.95. Their booth is located near Exhibit Hall J Entrance between Konami and Paizo.

Map Location #15 – Game Mechanics, Inc.

Publisher: The Game Mechanics
Booth: 1855
Convention Information: I have not been able to find any information about recent or new releases from Game Mechanics. Their booth is located across from Cryptozoic near the concessions.

Map Location #16 – Gaming Paper

Publisher: Gaming Paper
Booth: 1456
Convention Information: The highly popular alternative to expensive battlemaps, gaming paper, will most likely have a regular booth setup to showcase their current products. In addition, they have an autograph session setup for Steven Schend, Brian Cortijo, Ed Greenwood, and Monte Cook. Their booth is located near the concessions along the main aisle past the Art Show & Authors’ Avenue.

Map Location #17 – Green Ronin Publishing

Publisher: Green Ronin Publishing
Booth: 965
Convention Information: Green Ronin Publishing has some great recent product releases that I’m sure will be readily available at Gen Con. This includes Dragon Age Set 2, Mutants & Masterminds 3rd Edition, and DC Adventures Heroes & Villains sourcebook. I don’t see any direct announcements, but these are probably their biggest releases in the past few months. Their booth is located in the back of the exhibit hall directly across from the Entertainer Spotlight.

Publisher: Atomic Overmind Press
Convention Information: Atomic Overmind Press is sharing the Green Ronin Publishing booth and featuring their newest release – the revised edition of Unhallowed Metropolis, a neo-victorian horror system. The core rulebook carries an MSRP of $39.95.

Map Location #18 – Interaction Point Games The map has this misprinted as Interactive Point Games.

Publisher: Interaction Point Games
Booth: 1954
Convention Information: While not seeing any special announcements, Interaction Point Games has been releasing Kingdoms of Legend products this year, a setting for Pathfinder, and will probably be readily available at the convention. Their booth is located behind Game Mechanics near Crytpozoic and the concessions.

Map Location #19 – Kenzer & Company

Publisher: Kenzer & Company
Booth: 1519
Convention Information: Again I have not seen any announcements, but considering what they’ve released in the past months, I’m guessing HackMaster Basic will be in the spotlight (including the Hacklopedia of Beasts?). Their booth is located next to Triple Ace Games and Margaret Weis Productions near the Exhibit Hall H Entrance.

Map Location #20 – Lone Wolf Development

Publisher: Lone Wolf Development
Booth: 1650
Convention Information: Lone Wolf Development has some great software releases and previews at the convention including the Shadowrun Hero Lab data set and the new Realm Works program designed to make a GMs job easier. They have stated that there will be plenty of demos going on along with regular updates including Pathfinder Ultimate Combat and the MAC version of Hero Lab. Their booth is located near the concessions and across from Entrepreneurs’ Avenue.

Map Location #21 – Margaret Weis Productions

Publisher: Margaret Weis Productions
Booth: 1619
Convention Information: I don’t know if Margaret Weis Productions has any fairly recent RPG products to feature as it appears their latest releases are novels and eBooks. Supernatural was their last system to come out and I’m sure there will be plenty of Cortex-powered products available for purchase. Their booth is located across from Kenzer & Company near Exhibit Hall H Entrance.

Map Location #22 – Mongoose Publishing

Publisher: Mongoose Publishing
Booth: 1003
Convention Information: Mongoose Publishing has a number of new products being featured, role-playing and otherwise. This includes Designers & Dragons, The Nexus Files, Van Graaf’s Journal of Dragons (for Pathfinder), Age of Treason (for RuneQuest II / Legend), and Sword Worlds (for Traveller). Their booth is located directly across from Exhibit Hall I Entrance.

Publisher: Redbrick LLC
Convention Information: Mongoose Publishing is featuring the latest Earthdawn book from Redbrick Crystal Raiders along with current releases.

Publisher: Sine Nomine Publishing
Convention Information: Mongoose is printing the wildly popular Stars Without Number core rulebook from Sine Nomine Publishing and will be featured at the convention.

Map Location #23 – Old School Renaissance Group

Publisher: Old School Renaissance Group
Booth: 1541
Convention Information: Old School Renaissance Group is a collaboration between multiple publishers representing the Old School movement. This list of publishers includes: Autarch, Black Blade Publishing, Brave Halfling Publishing, Expeditious Retreat Press, Faster Monkey Games, Fight On!, Frog God Games, Goblinoid Games, Henchman Abuse, Lamentations of the Flame Princess, Pacesetter Games & Simulations, and Sine Nomine Publishing. Other than Expeditious Retreat Press, I do not know which one of these publishers will physically be there. It appears that their booth will be stocked with all sorts of Old School goodies including the OSRIC hardcover core rulebook. Their booth is located in Entrepreneurs’ Avenue near the Art Show & Authors’ Avenue.

Map Location #24 – Paizo Publishing

Publisher: Paizo Publishing
Booth: 302
Convention Information: Due to PaizoCon, I doubt Paizo Publishing will be featuring anything that hasn’t already been featured. Maybe we’ll catch some glimpses of Ultimate Combat or their upcoming starter box. You can be sure that they will have plenty of great products for sale. Their booth is located directly across from Exhibit Hall J Entrance.

Stay tuned-in tomorrow for the conclusion of The Big Overview and the final countdown to Gen Con. T-minus 3.5 days and counting… I hope to see everyone there!

P.S. Feel free to stop me and say “Hi” while you’re walking around. I’ll be working at the Triple Ace Games booth on Friday from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM and again on Saturday from 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM. I’d love to hear people’s opinions about some of the great products they found and even grab some pictures. Actually, I’d like to get lots of fan pictures with all the great products everyone is finding.
