|Happy to report that this has not happened to me in a dream... yet.|
Regardless (not Irregardless - that'd be evil gremlin talk), Gencon being a week away means it's time to get to business thinking about what this year's gonna mean for me. Usually I start Gencon preparation in two ways - what I want to play, and what I want to buy. I'm happy to say that the what I want to play greatly outnumbers the what I want to buy category for this year.
Outside of the random find after an awesome demo experience, I've limited myself to three things I really want and a couple of things I'm interested in more than a little.
|White Wolf rarely disappoints in the art department.|
I'm a huge Tolkien fan, more than Star Wars, more than Game of Thrones, more than anything really. I'm contented to sit down and read about the border control problems the bounders are having at the edge of Hobbiton for hours on end.
What's that? Cubicle 7 is releasing a book of adventures for the game? To the same amazing quality of the original One Ring boxset? Yes, I'm sold.
|Second City - I want to be in you!|
Pictured to the right of here is the only image we have for a new type of product for 4th Edition - their first box set. Titled the Second City, I can't even link you to a product description page on AEG's website (because gremlins hid it, I swear! Prove me wrong internet and find me where it is!). Sadlly, the most description I can find for it is on FRP Games' product description page. I dearly hope they're wrong about the price at $80.00, since I'm not sure I can justify paying retail for it at the show. Still, I now if AEG prices it at that, it's going to be good. Also, the technique cards described to come with it sound fun and useful, so bonus!
Check in soon for a follow-up post on what I want to play!
