    I think having the option is nice. I would imagine that a number of homebrew campaign settings use certain monstrous races as good or neutral aligned playable races. In that sense, having the mechanics already in place is a pleasant convenience. But in a Forgotten Realms game? Yeeeaahhhh, no Vampire PCs my dude.

  • 02:26 AM - Lanefan mentioned eyeheartawk in post Gen Con Has Doubled In Size Since 2010
    A bunch of quasi-random things to toss in here: * - Adding more actual convention space isn't an issue at all, there's a whacking big covered football stadium a block to the south they could take over (and rumour has it this is a possibility) if needed, as it's not otherwise used much in the NFL off-season. It's the accommodation squeeze causing the headaches. * - The 9% number is just this year's increase; each of the last two years the year-over-year increase has been closer to 20%+. * - I don't know about Chicago but there's a quote above about possibly moving it to Orlando, and that would be a disaster. Orlando has gobs and gobs of hotels, to be sure, but they're spread out over a massive area; and as they can't even organize a decent (and free!) shuttle service to the outlying hotels in Indy I shudder to think how it'd work out in Orlando. * - eyeheartawk Having events in places other than the actual ICC is a good thing, in that it allows events to be run outside the Thursday-Sunday block (e.g. the Stink on Wednesday evening in Union Station, same place the Ennies are presented on Friday night). * - Michael Dean The quickest way to expand the dealers' hall would be to move the card/board game area to somewhere else; which would be fine with me.

    Fair. I happen to think it's because of the almost laser focus on the setting for multiple editions more than anything else. But a safe bet is a safe bet. Though, by that logic maybe a real FR book? Since, you know, SCAG is pretty limited (being generous here). WotC did try to do make Greyhawk (my personal favorite) a thing in 3E, but bent to commercial pressure in the end. In 4E, they tried to displace FR and relegate it to a one-year deal, and in the end bent to commercial pressures. Hardly a laser focus at all, WotC tried and failed to escape Toril's orbit.

    How would we know that? Saying it's the most popular setting by far when it's the only real official choice is just sort of winning by default, right? Because WotC did a poll, and FR was heads, torso, and feet more popular than every other setting. Is it likely due to FR getting more spotlight than any other setting since 2e? Sure, quite possible. Doesn't change the fact that, unfortunately, it's the most popular D&D setting.

    How would we know that? Saying it's the most popular setting by far when it's the only real official choice is just sort of winning by default, right? Ravenloft only partially exists as a one-off AP. The only other real setting release is very recent and based on a non D&D specific setting (which, if I had to bet will likely not sell as well as WoTC would hope and reinforce their perception that it's the Realms or nothing). Even as not really a fan of the Realms myself, I would even take non Sword Coast FR content at this point. Even that would get me more excited than more of the same. The Realms has long been the setting for New York Times best selling novels, and hit video games, and board games. Sure, there is an element of self-fulfilling prophecy, but the popularity is not something WotC can overlook. While acknowledging that it has stereotypical elements (or rather, archetypal), I really like the Realms, particularly the Sword Coast and environs. I am not alone in this. If o...

    You've got to figure the enthusiasm for Forgotten Realms products certainly isn't at its zenith given we've already had a bunch of Realms stuff. I don't think so at all. We're getting Realms products because that setting, by far, is the most popular. Plotless megadungeons and mislabeled not-heists on the other hand, might generate low buzz in any setting.

    Chicago has more than enough convention center space in Mcormick Place and without question enough hotel space. Seems like the most likely scenario to me. Illinois also has a welcome lack of legally-sanctioned discrimination. Adrian Swartout, the CEO of Gen Con, told The Associated Press on Thursday, the convention’s opening day, that a competitive offer from a state that grants gays and lesbians that status [extending civil rights protections to the LGBT community] could be a “catalyst” pushing the event to relocate when its contract expires in 2020. Chicago has shown interest, and Orlando, Fla., also is a possibility, she said. http://www.indystar.com/story/news/2015/07/30/gen-con-ceo-calls-broader-lgbt-protections-indiana/30914743/ Chicago is, in this case, my kind of town!

  • 03:13 PM - buzz quoted eyeheartawk in post Chicago Gameday 38 is June 14th at Games Plus in Mt. Prospect, IL
    Right, I'm just wondering how much of this is us having fewer events for people to sign up for than normal. I'm curious as to how Origins will affect overall attendance. Ah, okay. Sorry, I misunderstood. Origins (and possibly the other cons Mark mentioned) is definitely having an effect, as I know a few regulars (who generally GM) who'll be there instead of here. And, yes, fewer games means things fill up faster. Still, I was afraid we'd barely get anyone to attend, ergo my surprise at some events actually filling up. Feel free to put the word out, though; still plenty of seats available.

    Yeah, it went really quickly. Not sure what that tells us about actual attendance though... I find it's generally a good indicator. It's rare for people to sign up and then just not show; they typically let me know they can't make it or withdraw via the system.
