A blogger post about Kagematsu

Hi Folks,

Paul let me know that a woman who has a blogger blog has posted about Kagematsu. I love the name of it, the 20 Sided Woman Project! I've only read a few entries but she talks about gender and role playing.

Bitch on Play This Thing!

Greg Costikyan of Manifesto Games posted a review today of Danielle Lewon's micro-game Bitch on his blog Play This Thing! Greg has insightful things to say about the game and comments on how it would fit well into a night of other gaming.

Bitch sold out at GenCon, but contact Danielle to see when more copies of the game may be available.

Great Buzz for Pirate Jenny at GenCon

The booth looked really great this year. I was pleased that we had such a great space - people commented that our booth felt welcoming. It got a bit crowded when both tables were running demos, but that was a good thing!

We were lucky enough to have a lot of buzz at the convention. Ken Hite mentioned us in his article in the program. We can't say thank you enough to the other booths who pointed people in our direction, especially Design Matters, the Forge booth, and the folks over at IPR.

Lastly, Pirate Jenny was the subject of some podcasting buzz! Ryan Macklin actually stopped by the booth at the end of the show for a special live from the dealer's hall edition of This Just In From GenCon. We were also mentioned in many of the other This Just In From GenCon podcasts as well, so be sure to give those a listen!

Thanks again to everyone who helped us be such a success this year. We had some great games, but we couldn't have done this well without the enthusiasm we got from the rest of the community!

GenCon Report

We did it! The Pirate Jenny booth was a success at GenCon. We sold out of Kagematsu, Tales of the Fisherman's Wife, RPGirl and Sign in Stranger, and did good business for everyone's games. It was a pleasure to set sail underneath her colors.

Heading off to GenCon

Tomorrow is a travel day for many of us. We'll arrive in Indianapolis on Wednesday and set up the booth. There have been some changes in the line-up. Julia Ellingboe and Elizabeth Shoemaker both cannot make it, but their new games will be there: Homecoming as a free playtest version, and Tales of the Fisherman's Wife in ashcan form.

Anna Kreider
will also have some kick-ass posters, with kick-ass women on them, along with her fantastic assortment of art and games. The RPGirl Zine will be there, with articles, and profiles of 25 women in the rpg industry.

And two games long in careful development are now joyfully complete: Kagematsu by Danielle Lewon, and Serial Homicide Unit by Kat and Michael S. Miller will be available and demo'd. I will also have Sign in Stranger. Picking them up tomorrow morning, then heading west!

Hope to see you in Indiana!
