Idle Red Hands Weekly 050: GenCon 2020, Kickstarter Layoffs, The Artefact, Star Wars PbtA and Microscope

This week Chris and I discuss… not that Chris, the other one. We discuss GenCon and its possible cancellation. San Diego Comic-Con and WonderCon canceled. Kickstarter down 35% and facing layoffs, but maybe just the labor organizers. Star Wars Powered by the Apocalypse Engine. Solo gaming with Tunnels and Trolls by Flying Buffaloe and the zine RPG, The Artefact by Jack Harrison. Microscope a Fractal Roleplaying Game of Epic History by Lame Mage Productions. Frosthaven Kickstarter in its final week and breaking US$9 million.

Idle Red Hands Weekly 048: Gaming Cancellations, New Head of Grim and Perilous, Virtual Tabletop Freebies, Doom One Shot, Solo Games Bundle and Farflung RPG

Some of the most recent cancellations in the tabletop industry. Will GenCon be next? Adam J. Rose is the new head of Grim and Perilous, makers of Zweihander RPG. A list of virtual tabletop software to try in these self-isolating times. Most are offering free access to premium features or a discount for a license. Critical Role played a sponsored one-shot of the Bethesda Softworks videogame, Doom. We are still trying to figure out how they did it.  Bundle of Holding is offering a Solo Games Bundle, including the excellent Ironsworn RPG in the Starter Collection. The Farflung RPG may be our next scifi after dark tabletop session. Is it the only system capable of running the TV series, LEXX? With the future of the human species up in the air, we may or may not be back next week. Keep safe and stay tuned!
