May 13, 2011: Off To Brazil! (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/archives.html?m=May&y=2011&d=13)

By the time you read this, I should be far south of here, well on my way to the World RPG Festival (http://www.worldrpgfest.com.br/site/) in Curitiba (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curitiba), Brazil. This is my third trip to Brazil, and I hope it's not my last. Brazil is a wonderful place, and so huge that thirty visits wouldn't do it justice. So we do what we can.</p>

World RPG Fest is a huge event!&#160; I'm not even their only US guest; Chris Pramas of Green Ronin (http://greenronin.com) will also be there. They'll have thousands and thousands of gamers. I expect this to be somewhere between GenCon (http://www.gencon.com/) and PAX (http://prime.paxsite.com/) in size.</p>

I'll get to hang out with the Brazilian MIBs, meet with Devir Ltda. which publishes GURPS (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/) and Munchkin (http://www.sjgames.com/munchkin/game/) (and several other things) in Portuguese, meet mass quantities of gamers, do a couple of talks, observe the Munchkin (http://www.sjgames.com/munchkin/game/) tournament being run by the MIBs, show off some new stuff, and maybe playtest some prototypes and see at least one new GURPS (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/) book that's being released for the show. Oh, yes . . . and ride an excursion train.</p>

This will be a long flight - a hop from Austin to Dallas, then ten hours in the air to Sao Paulo, then a hop to Curitiba. I'll take some work. In theory I'll also be able to sleep. Cross your fingers.</p>

I'll try to post at least one report from Curitiba. With any luck, it will even be moderately coherent.</p>
