Gen Con Indy: Day 1, Part 2

Apologies for the tardiness of this post. I had some severe internet issues today. In any case, here we are with more.

It's tough not to love what Inkwell Ideas offers. I grabbed a set of Dungeonmorph Cards today, and they are all sorts of awesome. The Dungeonmorph Dice that they had demo copies of were pretty sharp, too:



They also offered a free map as swag:



I also got a preview of the One Ring RPG. Interesting system for modeling the effects of fatigue, which is pretty key through Tolkien character journeys. It's a pretty good-looking slipcase set, with plans to expand the world not unlike the Fantasy Flight Rogue Trader/Deathwatch/Etc. model:




It's impossible not to love the level of detail from both Dwarven Forge (resin, first photo), and Fat Dragon Games (cardstock, second photo):





Here's Palladium Books. Kevin Siembieda is signing for a fan here:


I took this at the Privateer Press booth before it opened. Super-cool display:


This is like a quarter of Mayfair's demo space. They rock the demos like none other:


Steve Jackson Games had this gumball-type machine. Put in four quarters and get a limited-edition Munchkin figure! Talk about popular! (And yes, that is a brain in a jar next to it. You could totally touch it).


That's it for now. I hope my internet woes clear up tomorrow, otherwise it might be a late update!

I have a favor if you don't mind. Could you get a wide angle and one close up of the Armory booth with all the dice. Kelly Anne, my wife, uses them as part of the hairsticks she makes.

My words were inadequate to describe just how many dice there were at the Armory booth, and as they say a picture is worth a thousand words.

Thanks

Of course! But Chessex, Crystal Caste, Q-Workshop, Koplow, and Gamescience are the dice companies I know are there. Would one of those do?

Rob Conley said...

err I meant Chessex thanks.

A quick edit on my earlier comments: apparently someone said WotC is selling something, somewhere. As you may have guessed, it isn't exactly apparent or well-communicated.
