Just a quick news update from the midst of Finncon 2010 in Jyvväskylä. I’d write up a longer post but I am slightly busy preparing my presentation of the first act of the annual Finncon masquerade, for which I was volunteered by ambush yesterday. It’s the same thing every damn year, I come to this con to have fun and relax and hang out before Ropecon kills me and then I get roped into doing something like this.
The public voting booth for the ENnie Awards opened yesterday, and will be open until midnight according to someone else’s watch, July 25th. I covered the nominees and my thoughts on them in my last post, and already placed my votes last night. Now, your turn. Go vote!
In other news, James Edward Raggi IV’s Lamentations of the Flame Princess: Weird Fantasy Role-Play is pretty much ready, and it looks pretty. It is the only major game release at Ropecon this year, even though it looked for a while there like we might get loads of new games. I’m not getting my contributor’s copy until next week (I wrote a couple of pages on H.P. Lovecraft for James), and can’t give my impressions beyond being blown away by the art, but for now I refer you to one of the editors, Zak S over at Playing D&D with Porn Stars.
That’s all, folks. Now, silence until next week. Then, convention report.
