That's right. You read the subject right. I am pleased to announce the existence of the Official Sluggy Freelance Roleplaying Game, written by the illustrious R. Brent Palmer (that's me), with much consulting from the magnanimous Pete Abrams (not me).
Okay, I've got quite a bit of info for you. Bear with me, or skim till you find something that looks important. Whatever.
We're fairly confident the system is complete; we just need to find out if it's any good. Might help, right? Therefore, I will be running a playtest at Dragon*Con! And I want *you* (or, y'know, any Sluggite roleplayer who might be at D*C) to help me out!
Dragon*Con is Labor Day Weekend in Atlanta; all the info you need can be found at www.dragoncon.org
. To get a membership for the Con, go to http://www.dragoncon.org/dc_members.htm
As for the game, I'll be running three sessions, on Friday from 6 to 10 pm, Saturday from 6 to 10 pm, and Sunday from 10 pm to 2 am.
To register, go to http://gaming.dragoncon.net/event_search.php
, click on the menu that says "Game System," scroll to "Sluggy Freelance (RPG)," and click the button that says "Search." No matter what it says, this game does NOT require special or on-site registration; go ahead and register. Please don't register for more than one session, 'cause I want to extend this chance to as many Sluggites as possible.
I'll be providing pregenned characters, but I'll also be around half an hour early for each session to help anyone who wants to make their own. Look for a guy in a black and white "Cat in the Hat" hat.
And that's it for the Dragon*Con portion of this post. Oh, yeah. Also, Summer Glau from Firefly is going to be there. Not at the Sluggy game, at Dragon*Con. Not that that wouldn't be cool and all.
As for sending the game out to Sluggy Forumites for playtesting, like we were planning last year... I'm still planning to do that (though probably on a more limited basis than we originally planned). However, I'm not going to start that until I have a .pdf of the game and I'm ready to send it out (which may take a little while, partly because I keep making changes as I go, and partly because you'd be amazed how complicated getting a series of PageMaker files into a single .pdf can become).
Okay, that's it. If you have any questions or anything, get back to me... I'll be here.
