ChupacabraCon Carne

Once more I return to Austin just as the weather turns not-quite-ridiculous in Texas for the summery joy that is ChupacabraCon, and once more I must chatter for my chimichangas. Behold my panel schedule and be amazed! Good seats still available, guacamole is extra, no I don't know if anyone will ever ever stream any of this assembled wisdom or if it shall be lost like tears in the queso. Come on down and find out!


7:00-7:50 p.m.: Terror at the Table: techniques for evoking horror
Ed Wetterman, Jared Twing, Kenneth Hite, Mark Carroll, Shane Ivey

Join the creators of Delta Green, The Unspeakable Oath, and decades of award-winning Call of Cthulhu scenarios and sourcebooks to talk techniques for evoking horror in an RPG and ways to maintain the mood. [Guadalupe]


9:00-9:50 a.m.: Saturday Morning Cthulhu and Donuts
Darren Watts, Jared Twing, Kenneth Hite, Mark Carroll, Shane Ivey

Have a donut with Ken Hite and other Saturday morning cartoon personalities, and discuss Cthulhu and the creamy richness of donuts and coffee. A recurring nightmare, er... event. [Guadalupe]

3:00-3:50 p.m.: Alternate History in Gaming
Darren Watts, Ed Wetterman, Jess Nevins, Kenneth Hite, Russell Zimmerman

Game writers Kenneth Hite, Jess Nevins and Darren Watts get together for what will most certainly be a free-wheeling and wide-ranging discussion of the hows and whys of building alternative histories into your game setting. [Guadalupe]

I may also crash the Project ARC DREAM seminar with the Arc Dream gang on it at 8 p.m. on Saturday just because I love them so very much.
