Re: DELUXE Savage Worlds is coming....

I've looked over the Beautiful Brains website and can't find a podcast download page. Do they have podcasts of their 'chats' for download somewhere? Or is it a listen live only situation? Do you know? thanks. Sorry, but it is a chat room only. It lasts about an hour, and they don't usually put up t...

Christina@ConCarolinas June 3-5, 2011 (Charlotte, NC)

I'll be a guest at ConCarolinas again this year. I'm not running any C&C at this con, though. I'll be running two games of Rogue Mage, however. It's a post-apocalyptic game using tweaked Mutants & Masterminds rules. It is based on the Rogue Mage novels by Faith Hunter, who will also be in attendance...

Re: We need your help and feedback for this upcoming product

This looks promising. I hope the Troll Lord considers getting involved with Hero Labs, too. I have their Pathfinder tool, and it is quite good. I intend to purchase the add-ons for Savage Worlds and Mutants & Masterminds at some point.

MACE West (aka Cudgel Con) March 25-27, Hickory, NC

This is a new convention taking place in Hickory, NC. There will be a strong presence of Savage Worlds folks there. As part of the Carolinas Crusade, I'm running C&C (in Zobeck) and Rogue Mage. This will be my second con of the year.

Last year, there was no C&C on the schedule.
