TridentCon Prep Progress Update

When I posted again for the first time in a year, I listed some items that I needed to complete prior to TridentCon in October. I have been making good progress so far.

  1. Refresh my Savage Worlds rules knowledge
  2. Refresh my Star Wars rules knowledge
  3. Make pregens for Savage Rifts
  4. Make pregens for Star Wars
  5. Write Savage Rifts adventure
  6. Write Star Wars adventure
  7. Play test?
  8.  Find Savage Rifts minis
  9. Finish Final Fantasy V
  10. Finish Pokemon Yellow
I have also made some progress on finding minis for my Savage Rifts game, I plan to use the Token Tool and just use tokens. I used to use Token Tool all the time for Savage Worlds, but I completely forgot about it. Now I just need to find some good pictures and get to work.

I haven't made as much progress on the video game front. I have not touched Final Fantasy V, and I have barely played Pokemon Yellow. The main culprit here is the arrival of Dragon Quest VII for the 3DS. I pre-ordered it, but thought it came out in October for some reason. I barely put any time in to DWVII on the PS1, because it was so rough for its time and had such a slow start. I am about 5 hours in to DQVII and I am loving it so far.

I am still debating whether or not to back the GURPS Dungeon Fantasy kickstarter. I love GURPS, but I have not had a chance to play it in years. Maybe the box set will grab some attention and I can find folks into giving it a try. I have been running old school style D&D for about 8 years straight, other than Edge of Empire, and I am itching to do something at least a little bit different. I primarily used GURPS for hard scifi in the past, I would love to get back to that again.

We had a good Stonehell session this weekend. The players finally explored another one of my sublevels, The Conquistador's Tomb, thhat they discovered over a year ago, but never entered. I had a group explore the tomb at TridentCon last year, but I changed it quite a bit after that. If I can find an easy to use map making tool, I will draw it up and post it here.
