WWCCC RAW!

Much as I would love to be plugging an alternate-history all-Communist World Wrestling event, what that acronym actually signifies is the Wizard World Chicago Comic Con, which happens this weekend in Rosemont, which is not technically in Chicago, but close enough for jazz, right?

Should you wish to dare the Rosemont-area wilds (RAW!), here are some times during which you might wish to so dare. The wilds, that is. Of Rosemont. You know, this prose style may not have been the best idea I ever came up with, long long ago. Anyhow.

Friday, August 9

4:00 – 4:45PM DESIGNING FANTASY WORLDS
Together, Keith Baker (Eberron), Kenneth Hite (Trail of Cthulhu) and Will Hindmarch (Always/Never/Now) have decades of experience designing worlds for roleplaying games, MMORPGs, and fiction. Join in an informal discussion on all issues involved in creating a world for games or stories! (ROOM 50)

Sunday, August 11

12:30 – 1:15PM FEAR OF THE UNKNOWN
Lovecraft says the oldest and strongest fear is fear of the unknown. Unlike most horror protagonists, gamers often know that they are in a horror story and may be well versed in the lore of a setting. Join game designers Keith Baker (Eberron; Gloom) and Kenneth Hite (Trail of Cthulhu; Night’s Black Agents) as they discuss ways for a designer or GM to bring suspense to the table. (ROOM 34)
