Up Coming Public Appearances

The guys and gals at Geek Public Radio have been busy with the new studio space, new GPFilms in production and a couple getting ready to be released, and of course convention appearances coming up.

We will be in attendance at Gencon again this year with another live show, with some industry guests (to be announced), with prizes, games, and fun. If you are looking for something to do right after the vendor hall on Friday the 2nd of August, come and hang out with us at the Westin Grand Ballroom IV at 6pm est. Because Gencon needs to pay for the space, there is a two dollar fee per person. You can get tickets by searching event code ENT19146120 in the events on the Gencon website. Hope to see you there.

The dying Red Planet is waiting for your footprints in the dust!

Ever since telescopes have allowed it, mankind has observed the surface of Mars with its massive canal structures. But only when Thomas Edison set foot on the Red Planet was the truth revealed: Mars is home to a culture whose ancestors built the canals. They used them to distribute the water of the polar caps and thus saved the dying planet from the inevitable.

Their deeds have enabled the Martians to live on for tens of thousands of years.

Edison brought news from this world where many new civilizations waited to be discovered, all with their own customs, rites, beliefs, and world views. The British, the Germans, the French Commune, Belgian corporations, the Japanese and the Russians all landed on Mars to found their own colonies. What brought economic boons and technological progress to the cooperating city-states, instead brought exploitation, oppression, and war to the rest.

Pathfinder 2.0 Playtest First Thoughts

Like many others, at Gencon this year, we picked up the paperback copy of the Pathfinder 2.0 playtest. First of all, I like the idea of grabbing the playtest this way, because it covers the cost of the book, plus I get to hold a copy of it in my hands and pass it around the table. PDF's work, however, I still prefer the feel of the books in my hands. That was nice. However, I am not sure who did/would purchase the more expensive copies like the hardback, or the even higher priced special edition copy. That seems a little over kill for my tastes, but to each their own.

Digging into the book as we got home (ok why am I lying, as soon as I got into the hallway from purchasing it), I started to really look at some of the new items that made it into the playtest. Remember, this is just a playtest and can change when the actual edition comes out. This isn't an exhaustive list, as we are still pulling it apart and playing it to see where the bits and pieces fall. As we get moving along with the playtest and digging into the book more thoroughly, we will post further articles.
