While the blogosphere is abuzz with the news of WotC’s new GSL (which has hauled itself up from the depths of villainous infamy into mere mediocrity – more on Geek Related), something far more relevant to actual roleplaying games rears its head in Finland.
The Ropecon blog has gone live!
Of course, it’s in Finnish, but even if you don’t understand the language, you can go and admire the layout, or something. Or my ugly mug, a couple of posts down the page. You will also want to come to Ropecon, in Finland, on July 31st to August 2nd.
Also, the con’s theme of myths and secrets is no longer a secret (and you don’t even want to know how many bad jokes have been cracked about that), and we’re now looking for some programming. No call for GMs yet, but plans are being made and that, too, will go up in due time.
Another news item of interest is from a bit over a week ago: the public playtest of Pathfinder RPG has come to a close, as reported by Jason Bulmahn himself. Now, for us, there is only the long wait until Gen Con Indy and the release date.
Thirdly, I’ve got tickets to Watchmen on the opening night! Weeeeeeeeeeeeee!
