Socializing with other game designers at the bar.
9:00 am - S.A.L.T. L086 - This is the first proof of concept test for my Larp Tool that I'm developing. Yes, S.A.L.T. stands for "Steve's Awesome Larp Tool". It's.... a working title.
11:00 am - "Storium" focus group. I'm super interested in this as it's another method to bring together technology and tabletop gaming. Something I have a bit of a passion for.
12:00 pm - "The Best Ideas to Steal From Other Games". This just looks like an interesting panel with some interesting panelists.
1:00 pm - LUNCH
3:00 pm - "Using Adobe Software". This is my panel where I will be showing some of the fundamentals of the main three adobe products that RPG professionals typically use. I'll try to taylor this to the audience as much as I can.
4:00 pm - "KristaCon: An Introduction to LongCons". What are LongCons? I'll tell you after I go to this.
6:00 pm-ish - Dinner with Dave Schrader!
9:00 pm - "Odyssey" Beta Test. I'm actually pretty bummed that this is the exact same time as Epyllion. I'd like to do both. This should be awesome. Will's a great designer, and I'm sure this will be fun. There's an IndieGoGo campaign live now for it.
9:00 am - S.A.L.T. L210 - Kicking off day two with another test of my game.
11:00 am - "Iron Edda" Alpha Test. I know Tracy Barnett through the IGDN, and I'm looking forward to his upcoming kickstarter for this.
1:00 pm - LUNCH
4:00 pm - "Hobo Fun Time Adventure Game". I have a lot of respect for Dave Chalker. This is his game about Hobos based on John Hodgeman's book. Some day, I'm going to run a one-shot RPG based on the Hobo Wars.
6:00 pm - IGDN dinner!
9:00 pm - "Dangerous Mechanics: Rules That Looked Good On The Surface". Hosted by Kenneth Hite, Will Hindmarch, Rob Donoghue & Jason Pitre. That's four people who each individually deserve some mad respect. Can one room hold that much awesome?
10:00 am - S.A.L.T. just like the other 2 days, but an hour later.
11:00 am - "Press Start: Embracing Video Games And Digital Tools For Analog Design". Yeah, this is so far up my alley it's a bit uncomfortable. Ditching my own playtest for this. (no really, I want to make sure that they can run it without me.)
I fly out Sunday afternoon, so I'll scoot out quickly after this panel.
