Ronin Round Table: Do All The GenCon Things!

gcmap*Update* See below for updates about booth signings.

Yes, folks, hard to believe it is already time for us to all fly to Indy and gather up for the most amazing time for tabletop game playing. And boy, are a bunch of folks gonna be playing our games. We’ve set a GenCon record, for us, that is, and we’ll have 90+ games on the Gen Con Schedule this year.

Games we will be featuring:

  • Mutants & Masterminds
  • DC Universe
  • Fantasy AGE
  • Blue Rose
  • Titansgrave
  • Dragon Age
  • Freeport Pathfinder
  • ICONS
  • A Song of Ice & Fire Roleplaying
  • Last but not least, ORK!

There are a few games which haven’t sold out, as we’ve added them recently. You can do a search on the Gen Con site for Green Ronin Publishing to see the entire schedule. You are always welcome to drop by any of our games to see if the GM can take an extra or there is room to play. Bring some Generic Tickets, your dice, and get ready to play!

In the Green Ronin Publishing booth:

We’ll be featuring demos of Love 2 Hate by Designer Colm Lundberg in the booth, so make sure you stop by and get in a quick game with him.

We’re also pleased to be hosting Geek & Sundry in our booth again. You’ll be able to get your photo taken and roll the big d20 to win posters. We gave away so many last year; you’ll want to hit us early to make sure you get your chance to win each day.

We are also very pleased to announce three new titles available as of GenCon: Hero High for Mutants and Masterminds, the Fantasy AGE Bestiary, and the epic campaign Dragon’s Hoard, for A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying!
