This Week's Update - 16/10/09 Print

Gaelcon minus... seven days. And as usual, a whole country of gamers is getting ready for our largest event of the year. Non-Dublin-based people are preparing to make the trek from all around Ireland, and there will be a pile of people from further afield coming too.

I've been going to Gaelcon for sixteen years now, since I moved back to Ireland in 1993. And it's become something of a fixture in my calendar each year. Even for the couple of years that I didn't go I met friends who had already been, and we hung out. Gaelcon is a reason to get together with friends and a place to pick up games. You'll see something you haven't seen before, and you'll have a good time. It's kept me coming back for a long time, and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon. Arguably, Gaelcon is the reason that IrishGaming.Com exists as a resource. So if you're not planning to go, and you call yourself a gamer, and you're in Ireland, get your ass into gear and get planning the trip! Tell them Nick sent you, and you can buy me that pint we discussed last week.

But you didn't come here to listen to me wax lyrical about my "home" convention, right? It's update time - and this week we've got two scenarios. "Burnout" for Conspiracy X from ConFESS 2009 by Wayne O'Connor, ace scenario writer and even more ace artist. We've also got "Fear Us For We Are Acolytes" by prolific scenario writer and rubber-sword LARPer Tadeusz Cantwell - it's a Dark Heresy game from Gaelcon last year. Lastly (but far from leastly) we've a new "Natural20's Random Thought Table", this week focussing on... well... Gaelcon.

Anyone would think they were paying us.
