Matt and I went to Continuum 2006 in Leicester. This is a full weekend roleplaying convention with table top and freeform (dress up) roleplaying. It was the first time I’ve taken Matt and he and his friend Louis had a great time. NCSoft were there with Guild Wars and so they spent quit a bit of time playing that (and getting given goodies) but they said “it was great fun, people were very friendly and the games were good, even if NCSoft hadn’t been there we would have enjoyed it.”
I played in Newt’s Mythic Russia game, a great game of Savage Worlds set in Darkest Africa, Steve Dempsey’s Cold City game set in 1950s Berlin (gr8 system, gr8 setting, gr8 ref) and I ran my first ever Gwenthia game.
We had put a Gwenthia postcard and a CD with the latest Gwenthia pdf in the welcome bag, but no-one really knows the setting yet, so we had 8 people to the Gwenthia panel… the authors.. I think that the people who go to that Con are likely to like Gwenthia so I hope that it stirs ups some interest.
I met up with Danny Bourne Saturday night and we chatted about cameras and models, I even got to shoot a few frames with his Canon EOS 5D. I feel I managed to get back into the photography loop and I really like this picture of Matt I took there..
Anyhow, gr8 con, gr8 to see everyone, hope Furnace goes as well!
