IGDN at PAX Unplugged!

Pax Unplugged 2017

Some members of the IGDN have headed off to Philly to take part in the first ever PAX Unplugged. With its emphasis on tabletop fun, the IGDN decided to get a booth as well as participate in panels, run games, and see what all the excitement is about.

The IGDN booth is #343, and will include such games as: Synthicide, Dreamchaser, Catthulhu, Murders & Acquisitions, and the CAPERS preview edition. There will also be GM screens, dice, and other accessories for some games. Pete Petrusha will be at the booth throughout the con, and will have a matching word game for people to try out. Other IGDN members you might spot at the booth or around the convention are Craig Campbell, John Kennedy, and Jack Berberette.

The Indie Game Bazaar booth is #414, and will be selling Emily Care Boss’s Romance Trilogy, along with her other games. They will have other small press indie rpgs as well.

The Magpie Games booth is #442, and will include new releases like Bluebeard’s Bride, Pasión de las Pasiones, and The Ward. They’ll also have copies of Urban Shadows, Masks: A New Generation, Epyllion: A Dragon EpicVelvet Glove, and more!

Make sure to catch Danielle at her GMing panel at noon on Saturday in the Dragon Auditorium. If you miss her there, drop by the John Wick Presents booth (#438) to say hi!

Joel Sparks will be running his new board game at Unpub on Saturday, CRUISE — The Game of Competitive Tourism!. Craig Campbell will be running both CAPERS and Die Laughing while Pete Petrusha will be running Dreamchaser and the Whispering Road over at the Games on Demand room, so be sure to check out these games.

And don’t miss Marissa Kelly’s Small Talk: Proper Game Mastering at 1 pm on Sunday! She’ll be sitting down with Luke Crane at the Kickstarter booth, #740.

Have a great con!

After nearly a year and a half of hard work, Magpie Games is proud to announce that Andrew Medeiros has launched the Kickstarter for Urban Shadows, a Powered by the Apocalypse urban fantasy game. And we are publishing it!

A dark urban fantasy tabletop RPG Powered by the Apocalypse. Fight the darkness or let it swallow you whole!

Here are a few words from Magpie’s Mark Diaz Truman about the release:

765a37392278433eabe574f75d1e0e85_large“I knew when Andrew first talked with me about Urban Shadows that I wanted to publish it. I cut my roleplaying teeth on White Wolf games, and the urban fantasy genre has always spoken to me as a person of color. In these stories, the world that I know and the communities I see are the ones that have screen time!”

So for the last year and a half, Mark and Andrew have been working to get Urban Shadows ready. Now we need your help to get it finished, funding the art, the layout, and the printing for our first run of books. And if we can get a little extra to get us started, we’ll be able to work on new Playbooks (The Hallowed! The Dragon!) and City Guides for cities around the United States (and maybe the world?). In other words, help us make this an awesome game!
