Since I've been conscripted to be a sales rep for the booth, I'm going to need some info on the games I'm not familiar with. If you've got a product you'd like me to help you pitch to people, and are not on the list below, give me a short blurb about it's highlights so I know generally what to expect and get ahold of me wed. or thurs. before the Con really kicks of so I can get better details and maybe demo the games before I start piching them. Knowing what the hell I'm talking about would probably help me do my job.

Games I know:
Riddle of steel
dogs in the vinyard
my life with master
f*ck this
burning wheel
sorcerer
polaris

List of people to kill. (So far.)

1. Andy Kitowski
2. Vincent Baker
3. Ben Lehman
4. Ron Edwards
5. Ron Edwards (once isn't enough)

If you're on the list, you know why.

Cool. I'll send you some a|state stuff by email if you don't mind, just a very brief spiel about the most salient points of the game.

Cheers

Hey dude, can't wait to see you again!

Hey man, just a heads up: Luke has a crew of three in the booth this year who can run BW at the drop of a hat, so probably no need to prepare on that front.

My question:  Was there a grand announcement of all the games available at the Forge booth this year?  I'd like to get a couple 15-min demos together for a few games as well, and I know there's a couple new games that I haven't picked up yet...

I'm pretty exited about seeing everyone, too. I can't believe I let you guys talk me into this.

Honestly, I don't know if there was a booth roster anounced. If it's important, I suppose we could ask Ron. He'd probably know.

I know a bit about A State from flipping through Ron's copy last year. Very pretty book. I remember liking the concept, but it'll be nice to have  the rules explained.

however you want to contact me is fine, Post, email, phone, skywriting, psychic projections, it all works for me.

No worries I get the ether telephone fired up and make contact via mysterious waves.

Or possibly I'll email you, which I think would probably be best. Once I have my demo in final, written up format I'll send to to you as well.

Thanks for the help.

Imp Game, I promise, I can teach in less than ten minutes. Heck, most of the time in new groups thats chargen and deciding the mission for the game!
...
Anyone have a sample "Monkey Pack" to check out? I'm thinking I'll just pull together a 1 page bullet list myself, as the game is bloody easy to play and learn.
