Upcoming Convention Events

No Quarter Asked. None Given.

Convention plans are beginning to fall into place. Watch the bottom of the right sidebar for a growing list of convention attendances.

Besides lots of D6xD6 RPG events, I’ll be running some card games—including a regular Clashing Blades! tournament in which you could win a deck, or even take the medallion above from around my neck.

Here’s the deal on that: (1) players are paired off for a practice round to learn the rules; (2) those pairs then play an actual tournament round; (3) whoever wins their first round keeps that deck; (4) the tournament winner plays me for a shot at the medallion.

These things aren’t cheap, so I won’t make it easy, which means if you win it, it’s worth bragging about. Here’s a list of upcoming events, so you can plan if you like.

Popcorn Press made lots of progress on the D6xD6 RPG project over the weekend.

The Dragon Dice setting was completed, the Blood Type setting nearly so, several authors’ drafts arrived, final contracts were sent, backers receiving online playtest sessions were contacted, and we ordered backer dice—including the Kickstarter-exclusive dice above, and more of the fanged smiley promo dice shown below. (Click either image for a close-up view.)

A Quick Favor

Werewolf Stereogram

Could you do me (and yourself) a quick favor? Currently there’s a single rating of three stars for Wolf Man’s Curse at DriveThruCards. No comments; no review; just the rating.

What I’m asking is that you visit the Popcorn Press page at DriveThruCards, download the FREE PDF, give it a try, and post your own rating. Comments or a full review would also be appreciated.

(By the way, all the Popcorn Press PDFs are free, so why not give them all a try?)

Thanks!
