September 6, 2014: FenCon In Dallas (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/a/2014-09-06)

I'll be the Special Gaming Guest at FenCon XI, to be held in Dallas on September 26-28. Other guests will include Eric Flint, Rich Sternbach, Timothy Zahn, and Ookla the Mok. My inner geek is quivering with anticipation, the more so since I picked up a stack of Flint's 1632 alternate-history books last month. I have read them all; I now require another stack.

The FenCon program book traditionally includes contributions from all the guests. I puzzled for a while about what I could do, and settled on (duh!) some game rules. Specifically, a possible rules tweak for Castellan (http://www.sjgames.com/castellan/) and two new castle parts. I've made some mockups that we can use to playtest there. Will there be an actual supplement for Castellan (http://www.sjgames.com/castellan/)? Maybe. And if these ideas work out in play but a physical supplement can't make it onto the schedule, we can always do a PDF in Warehouse 23 (http://www.warehouse23.com/). Heck, in a very few years most of you will have access to a 3-D printer and will be able to make your own game parts.

FenCon designates a specific charity every year and raises donations through the auction and special events. This year's charity is the Children's Advocacy Center of Collin County (http://www.caccollincounty.org).
