Sci-Fi RPG Designer Roundtable: Challenges in Crafting Original Settings & Systems

Friday, 11:00 - 12:00 pm
Crowne Plaza : Grand Central Bllrm A/B
What makes for a great SF RPG? How do designers find the right balance between scientific realism and fun gameplay? Which is better: space broccoli, space koalas, space octopi, or space business cards? Game designers Rob Boyle (Eclipse Phase, Shadowrun 4e), Epidiah Ravichol (Dread, Vast & Starlit), Jared Sorensen (FreeMarket, Schism), and Brennan Taylor (Bulldogs!) talk about the art & science of making kick-ass sci-fi games.

The Campaign Doctors

Friday, 1:00 - 2:00 pm
Crowne Plaza : Grand Central Bllrm A/B
A PAX East favorite comes to Gen Con! Campaign Doctors Luke Crane (Burning Wheel, Torchbearer), Jack Graham (Eclipse Phase), Robin D. Laws (Gumshoe, Hillfolk), & Amanda Valentine (Firefly, Marvel Heroic Roleplaying) solve your campaign problems. This is an audience participation panel. Bring your questions about how to make your group back home better. The Campaign Doctors have the answers -- but you might not like them!
