Trask Survived Origins 2008

I survived Origins… barely. It was an excellent trip, I got to play some cool games and meet interesting people. I am dead from travelling, but here are some “coming attractions” for this week’s  posts.

1. A report on having lunch with Mike Mearls, lead designer of “Dungeons and Dragons” Fourth Edition. I asked him some specific question about the future of  “Dungeons and Dragons”  and “Living Forgotten Realms.”

2. Review of “D20pro,” the best online tabletop utility I have seen to date. Possibly the coolest thing at the show. Full review to follow.

3. “Beyond Protocol ”  a new MMORPG with “Real-Time Strategy” elements. Looked very cool.

4.  “Aces and Eights ” from Kenzerco . It was the coolest new book I saw at the show. Amazing art and a fun combat system.

This list is not comprehensive, but it is all I can muster right now. Look for posts to resume tomorrow night.
