Two things I forgot to mention in my last post. First off, in addition to all the other stuff we did this year, I (Sarah) wrote three blog posts for Onyx Path Publishing about working on Frostlands of Fenrilik and writing NPC stat blocks:
And Fran and I are going to be running Virtual D&D games at Orca Con’s Virtual convention in January. Sign up if you’re interested!
– Saturday, Jan 9th at 1PM PST we’ll be running Frostlands of Fenrilik’s Into the Gorge adventure: https://tabletop.events/conventions/orcacon-online/schedule/22
– Sunday, Jan 10th at 11AM PST we’ll be running one of our Vigil Training Mission games: https://tabletop.events/conventions/orcacon-online/schedule/23
Which Vigilant Training Mission game we run is partly up to you, as we ran them both at last year’s Orca Con. If we have entirely new players we’ll run whichever one we’re in the mood for. Otherwise we’ll run whichever one none of the players has played yet.
Well, 2020 is here, and I dunno about you but it’s not the neon-soaked, cybernetic dark future I’d hoped for. Sarah and I are trying hard to get our plans back on track, and we apologize for falling so far off the radar. I know some of you check this site, and we’re really grateful for your dedication. We’re gonna push to update more often.
Right now, Sarah and I are both working on a bunch of different projects, including some tabletop work I’m doing directly for Onyx Path: the Dead Man’s Rust expansion, which I can’t say much about, but I think players will really enjoy!
The second Shadows and Dreams book is definitely still in the pipeline. If folks are interested, maybe we could share some work-in-progress materials at some point.
Regardless, thanks for sticking by us! Stay healthy, be kind to one another, and keep in touch!
UPDATE: Well, that went well, didn’t it? 2020 has knocked us for a real loop, just like everyone else out there. All the cons we hoped to go to have been canceled. However, there’ve been a few online opportunities, including a short-notice online-only Onyx Path convention where we played in an exhibition game and ran one of our vigilant training scenarios. We’re keeping an eye out for other opportunities like this, and if such things open up, we’ll announce them here–we promise.
Here’s an update list of our conventions this year. We already attended OrcaCon (Bellevue, WA) in January (and it was AMAZING). We ran two Vigilant D&D missions, played a ton of cool board games (and even won a new game in the Play & Win drawing), hung out with some amazing people, and overall had a blast. We’re already setup to go next year.
We also attended NerdFaire (Lynnwood, WA) for the first time. I won a free entry at OrcaCon. It’s a little one day event with lots of vendors and cosplay. Depending on how things go over the next year, we might look into tabling there next year.
For the rest of 2020 you can find us (Fran and Sarah) at:
March 12-15 Emerald City Comic Con (Seattle, WA). Drop us a message on social media to find out where we are.
April 9-12 NorwesCon (Seatac, WA). We’re just attending, not tabling, but we are willing to run a pickup D&D game if you’re interested. It’s a smaller convention, so we should be easier to find — drop us a message on social media if you have trouble.
July 17-19 Readerfest (Tacoma, WA). We’re going to be speakers at Readerfest!! Check it out at https://readerfest.org/.
August: Alas, we’re going to miss both Dragonflight and Britcon in August. Not only are they the same weekend, but it’s also the weekend of my little brother’s wedding on the east coast. Maybe next year.
September: We may table at RustyCon (Bellevue, WA). Details TBD.
We love going to conventions and seeing people!
Fran and I will be at Geek Girl Con in Seattle, WA on November 16th-17th. We’ll be selling copies of Vigilant and a few Pathfinder Player Guides for the Scarred Lands.
We’ll also be running short (think 2 hour drop-in) Scarred Lands D&D sessions in the gaming area.
Convention Schedule for 2020:
OrcaCon: Bellevue, WA Jan 10-12. We’ll be running games, signing books, and hanging out!
Emerald City Comic Con: Seattle, WA March 9-12. We’re not tabling, but we will be there all weekend attending as pros, and we’ll have copies of Vigilant with us. Drop us a message if you want to meet up!
NorwesCon: Seatac, WA April 9-12. What we’re specifically doing is still TBD, but we have hotel rooms and will be there for the full show! Could be tabling, reading, and running a game or two. We’ll definitely be socializing with our favorite fellow geeks. We’ll have more details soon.
We’re also looking into attending GenCon (in Indianapolis, ID) from July 29-Aug 2, but that’s still TBD.
Fran and I will be attending the following Conventions in the Seattle Area in 2019 and early 2020:
PaizoCon, May 25th. We’ll running a Pathfinder game that takes place in the same setting as our novel. Check out
https://paizo.com/events/v5748mkg1vkec to sign up.
DragonFlight, August 16-18th. We’ll be running three Vigilant Mission events at DragonFlight this year (11AM, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday), so check out their page to sign up: https://dragonflight.org/
We may also have copies of Vigilant for sale.
Geek Girl Con, November 16th-17th. Details coming later when we know more. Vigilant Mission game events, books for sale, and more!
OrcaCon, Jan 10-12, 2020. OrcaCon has probably become our favorite local convention. We debuted there this year, in 2019, and we expect to have a significant presence there in 2020. I expect we’ll run some games, and should have news about book two by then!
NorwesCon, April 9-12, 2020. Details TBD.
Past Conventions in 2019:
Signing at Emerald City Comic Con (March 17th)
Reading at NorwesCon (April 21st. It was also our wedding anniversary!)
See you soon!
