GenCon is almost here! We’re kicking things off with a bang with our Getting Started in the Industry Panel on Thursday at 2 O’Clock! Tickets are flying, with less than 25 left as of this writing! Our purpose remains as true as ever!
One of the questions that gets asked a lot is how to get started in the industry. Our panel of Freelancers and self-publishers will take your questions and swap stories from their own perspective. Wether its pitching your ideas to publishers, answering a call, or trying to decide between kickstarter or bootstrap production, we’ll share our experience on getting our name in print.
We want to get the word out about the panel because we’ve had a big shake up in panelists over the last couple of weeks. I couldn’t be more excited about the experience of our current line up.
Matt James has been a freelancer for years working with such companies as Kobold Press, Paizo, and Wizards of the Coast. He’s currently the co-owner of Vorpal Games and the lead game Designer their already funded Kickstarter Red Aegis.
Tracy Barnett runs Sand & Steam Productions, and has self-published both of his games: School Daze and One Shot. School Daze won an Judges’ Spotlight ENnie just this year.
Eloy Lasanta is often called the “hardest working man in RPGs,” having founded Third Eye Games and released a slew of games: Apocalypse Prevention, Inc, Wu Xing: The Ninja Crusade, Part-Time Gods, Mermaid Adventures (ENnie Nominated) and his newest, Camp Myth: The RPG. He also does freelance work for a number of other companies, including Growling Door Games and Heroic Journey Publishing.
Shoshana Kessock is the creator of Phoenix Outlaw Productions, a staff member at Dystopia Rising and has freelanced for such companies as Evil Hat and Miskatonic River Press. She’s currently working on a new Tabletop RPG Wanderlust, when she’s not writing her novel.
I’m still moderating! Brian Liberge is the owner and creative director of the relatively young Beer Star Games! I’ve also been a freelancer for Kobold Press and Raging Swan Press.
I hope you’ll help me spread the word by sharing this post on your social thing-a-ma-bob of choice.
