I caught Erik Mona at Origins Game Fair. He discussed Horror adventures, H.P. Lovecraft, and Starfinder with me.
I always learn something from Erik, I wonder if he even realizes it.

I sat down with Loren Coleman @ Origins Game Fair and had a great discussion. We talked about some CBT, Vikings, The Duke, Jarl, and we even started creating a new set for The Duke. It was a great time!
I really hope he wasn’t pulling my leg when he said they were going to make a Sherlock Holmes set for The Duke. It would be so cool to be a part of that!
I was happy to meet J.R from Privateer Press at Origins 2016. We talked about the newest edition of Warmachine and Hordes. We focused on some of the key changes and the metagame. I’m really impressed with the new starters/battlegroups, each reflects the importance of playing the warmachines and beasts.
I am pretty stoked to try out these new rules. The whole idea of the game shifting to plat warmachines and beasts is pretty good.
I caught up with Jason Hardy at Origins 2016. Jason is the line editor for Shadowrun. Jason brought me up to speed on his novel, a few others, all of the shadow titles, a push your luck SR dice game, and we talked about the tarot deck. Oh did I mention Munge? I think that’s the right spelling.
According to Jason Shadowrun has a lot happening and the world is about to be in a state of chaotic flux, which means your runners will have a lot of work.
At Origins 2016 I had a chance to catch up with my good friend Bryan Poe from Arcane Wonders. We talked about Mage Wars Paladin and Siren. Bryan may have leaked a few other things as well.
I do believe if you listen closely a couple of allusions can be heard.
