It's almost time for Edinburgh's annual con again. I was wondering if anyone here might be interested in coming along.

I'll be running a couple of games (one about dinosaurs, the other about MegaCity Judges) and there's always time for a few boardgames in between the burgers and beers and RPGs.

Is anyone else interested? You can find the details here if you are: http://www.geas.org.uk/conpulsion/?

I'll be there. Apparently. I've been invited as a guest, but not heard anything in quite some time. No idea if I'm on a panel or just hanging around like a bad smell.

Conpulsion came and went, i had a great weekend. I was really nervous when i sat down to run my games for strangers but there was no reason to be, both games went pretty much perfectly.

My Dredd game was a lot of dumb fun about sugar-pushing popcorn sellers in a rapidly escalating conflict with lots of Costbucks (TM) baristas. The Judges saved the day, although SJS will be investigating their excessive use of Hi-Ex.

The Raptors game was if anything even sillier, it turns out that even if you give people one of the most lethal killing machines in fictional history, all they want to do is run around dual wielding AK47s.

I had a ball as well. I really like Compulsion; for all it's kinda tiny and fragmented, it's also super friendly and laid-back. The first day I took the kids and played some of the demo games on offer with them. Also scored a new job mapping a miniature game, so that was nice. Day two was all about sitting on panels and talking shop, which went enormously well. The second panel, about maps and world building, was unexpectedly busy for Conpulsion, which helped make it one of the best I've ever sit on. Good times.
