Since this is not an advertising forum, I think what Jared is saying is... please come to our seminar and offer your support! Help us spread the word and promote good game design. We'd love to see you there -- the more "game literate" participants, the better.

Uh, yeah. That's what I'm saying. Sure. :)

...

In all seriousness, it should be pretty cool. Vincent's topic is Roleplaying Theory, so all you nerds can show up and do The Wave everytime he says "Creative Agenda" or whatever. Then I'm talking about Game Design with Luke (it was going to be just me but Luke has a calming effect on me...plus he's Power Man to my Iron Fist).

Wick is speaking on worldbuilding and setting creation, and I'm sure a lot of that is going to involve myth and storytelling. I mean, he did L5R, 7th Sea, OrkWorld and all of his small press games...man's got chops.

Clinton and Luke will tackle production, with Clinton on the electronic side and Luke on the print side. I'm looking forward to that one.

The hope is that it inspires and informs people to start/work on/finish their own RPGs and show that it doesn't take $20,000 or some other "established" third-party to get your game out there.

Uh!  I wish I had all day Friday available.  I would love to see this seminar.  How long is it?  Both for my own personal game designs as well as for The Game Loft's this would be amazing.  Any chance you will be recording it?  Video or Audio?

Also, Jared did I see you are going to be at PortCon this year?  If so I look forward to meeting you.

Do you guys intend to do a short version containing everything in each of the four sessions? Or just talk new stuff in each of the sessions?

Ian, We're not planning to record it at this time (maybe at a future con if this goes well). Each session runs between 1 and 1.5 hours.

Mike, each session will concern a different aspect of RPG creation. The only facet we're not giving much attention is distribution (although I'm sure Clinton and Luke will touch upon it in their publication seminar).

And yeah, I will be at Portcon again this year.

So would I. ;)

I'd love to sit in the audience and just listen to everybody, but I've got to make my plane ticket fare on the sales floor. :)
