GEN CON 50

Postby Holz » Sun Jun 18, 2017 6:44 pm

Hi,
I will be attending GEN CON and if all goes right on the panel that Ulisses will do.
Will there be FS games for demo or display?

We won't have any of the new rules ready to actually run games, so we won't be running any.

There are just a few classic Fading Suns games being run by other folks:
https://www.gencon.com/events/105725
https://www.gencon.com/events/108703
https://www.gencon.com/events/117488

They seem to be all sold out, but as with all Gen Con events, it's worth trying to show up with generics just in case.

Also, Kettle of Fish will be running a Fading Suns LARP:

That still has plenty of tickets left at the moment.

I highly recommend the Fading Suns LARP if you can get into it. It is a lot of fun!

Not from the video. Only thing is that: Fading Suns Kickstarter in 2018.

Also they show their support to FASA's Noble Armada, and promised tie ins with it.

Anyone else underwhelmed by the Gencon video?

I know I was hoping for more information and a complete break from any and all products produced by Redbrick.

I have seen that comment more than once now. What's the problem with redbrick products? The shards I have read are ok to me

It has to do with their business practices and how they've treated freelancers working for them for the most part. Also we were suppose to get a full new 3rd edition for Fading Suns from them but just as we were starting to see some of the meat from the guy they had working on it they dumped him quickly threw together a Revision of 2nd ed that they released in very short order.

Oh, so it doesn't have anything to do with the quality of the products.

Yeah, the 3rd edition fiasco was what took me to stay playing using a different system.

Thanks for the explanation!
