Finding Me at FanExpo Canada

As sure as summer turns ineluctably to fall, the packed-to-the-rafters multi-track madness of FanExpo Canada descends upon Toronto, this time from August 28th to 31st.  I’ll be taking part in the following gaming track seminars alongside a mix of local reliables and new faces.

Sat 4 pm Advanced Kickstarting and Crowdfunding (Room 701B)

Sat 5:30 pm GM Masterclass (Room 701B)

Sun 3:15 Robin’s Laws of Life, Love and Game Mastery (Room 703)

Sun 4:45 State of the Gaming Industry (Room 703)

Though I don’t do the booth thing at FanExpo, I’m more than happy to chat and sign books if you catch me in the hallway between seminars.  It’s what I’m there for.

Finding Me at Gen Con

Once again that mammoth wave of sensory overload we call Gen Con,wherein we all magically remember again that gaming is fun and community brings joy, approaches at its typical barreling speed.
I’m very much looking forward to this year’s event. My top priority during exhibit hall hours is to chat with the people who read my books and play my games. By all means, please feel empowered to swing by and strike up a conversation or get a book signed. That’s what I’m there for. My newest game, The Gaean Reach, would look very nice with my signature on it. So would Hillfolk, The Esoterrorists 2nd Edition, or any number of fine products, recent or classic.
When I am not palavering at a panel, I’ll do my best to be at the Pelgrane Press booth during show hours—with the usual gaps when I am pulled away for interviews and business entreaties, or succumb to the cruelly inevitable exhibit hall pizza slice. That’s the auspiciously numbered Booth 101.
My public events sked goes like this:
Thurs 4 pm, Feng Shui 2 panel
Join the Feng Shui 2 team for scoops, teasers and art previews, including announcements regarding the upcoming Kickstarter campaign. (Crowne Plaza : Conrail Stn)
Fri 1 pm, Ken and Robin Talk About Stuff Live
Robin D. Laws and Kenneth Hite talk roleplaying, history, conspiracy, occultism, writing, food, movies and whatever you ask them about in this live edition of their award-winning podcast. (Crowne Plaza : Victoria Stn C/D)
Seminars don’t generally require tickets, but people have been grabbing them for KARTAS Live, so if you’re the cautious type you might want to pop over to the Gen Con site to reserve.
Fri 11 am, Pelgrane Press panel
Lob questions at the Pelgrane conclave regarding GUMSHOE, 13th Age and more. (Site TBA)
Note new time!
Sat 4 pm, GUMSHOE Adventure Masterclass
Learn to structure investigative scenarios with the GUMSHOE gurus. (Site Westin)
The last two events have yet to propagate to the Gen Con site. I’ll update when locations become available, and spread the word via social media on the day.
