Classic RPGs Panel at PAX

Hey, all! If you're going to PAX Prime next month, I'll be on a panel there.

The panel is "CLASSIC RPGs FOREVER!" (yes, in all caps, apparently), and it'll be on Sunday, August 30th at 11 AM in the Sasquatch Theater.

We'll be talking about resurrecting subgenres of classic RPGs that were once thought dead. I'll be joining veteran game developers Annie Mitsoda, Josh Sawyer, Mitch Gitelman, and Swen Vincke, with Penny Arcade's Jeff Kalles moderating.

I'm super excited and super terrified. This will be the first time I've ever been on a panel (or even seen a panel, or gone to PAX, or gone to any convention of any kind). It'll be awesome to talk games with a bunch of developers I admire, but yeah, combine a thousand unknowns with enormous crowds with nigh-clinical introversion and you get something that's even scarier than what I already do all day.

But hey, I'll manage. I always do.

So if you're going to be at PAX, let me know! It's possible I might be able to do something about that information without crawling under my bed in terror.*

* That's a joke. My bed is a mattress on the floor. I can't crawl under there without straining something.**

** Unless I crawl under the bed at my hotel. Hm, there's an idea....

Wow. I am speechless. See Acquisitions Incorporated for me!

If I only see one event live (other than my own panel, I guess), I intend to make sure it is Acquisitions, Inc.

i think Prime is the one where they do the crazy staging. And then at East (and South and Aus, I think?) they do kinda "vanilla" Acquisitions Incorporated. Chris Perkins!!!! Squeeeeeee!

So this is what you were talking about. And here I'd thought it was American Idol. Hey, at least you don't have to sing, right?

And really, any venue that has a Sasquatch Theater has got to be one very cool place full of cool people. Your people.

Adam Heine said...

Yeah, I couldn't do American Idol. I mean, I can keep up with their vocals (with some practice), but I ain't no performer.

Awesome that Josh will be there. I know him online because of you, and he seems pretty cool. Sucks that we will just miss each other, but I'm sure you'll have a great time!
