Guest of Honor - Jay Little
Gamer Nation Studios and d20Radio are proud to announce that legendary, award winning game designer Jay Little will be the guest of honor at this year’s convention. Jay is best known for designing Star Wars: X Wing and Star Wars: Edge of the Empire for Fantasy Flight Games. Jay has also designed titles such as Blood Bowl, Team Manager and is currently working with GNS on his new RPG System, The Triple Threat System. Triple Threat will provide the core mechanics for Tall Tales, A Yarn Spinnin’ RPG set in the American frontier, which finds players taking on the role of American Folk-Heroes, building fame and notoriety on their way to achieving legendary status along side the likes o’ Paul Bunyan, Davy Crocket and Johnny Appleseed.
We are in the early stages of planning the convention, but the following events are currently planned, and may change without notice:
Friday and Saturday – Reaper Miniatures Paint & Take will be set up for you gamers that enjoy miniatures painting.
Saturday at Noon – “Running Successful Gaming Kickstarters”, a panel with GM Dave and GM Chris, as well as Bryan Stiltz of Reaper Minis and Charlie Brumfield of Artisan Dice (That’s over $5 Million in KS success at the same table).
Sunday at 10am – ProtoGame Day, a time that game designers are invited in to preview and test their games with the Gamer Nation. Some new and exciting games are sure to make an appearance.
Role Playing Games: GMs committed so far for Edge of the Empire, Pathfinder, D&D, Fiasco, Mutants & Masterminds and much more on the way.
Tabletop Gaming: If you can dream it, we probably have it. The wall of games is available and we will have an EONS tournament starting Friday and ending Sunday.
Costume Contest on Saturday Night with our friends at the 501st helping us celebrate the winner!
Sunday afternoon will feature the auction where gamers will use XP earned by participating in gaming related events to bid for their favorite items up for bid. Games, game related stuff, tee shirts and other goodies will be available.
