Zweihänder at GenCon + the ENnie Awards
Hey Zweihänder fans,
Some updates on our GenCon appearance:
1) We are officially going to be at GenCon this year! While we won't have a booth, both Adam Rose and myself will be walking around to give away flyers for a free PDF and coupons for 15% off print-on-demand books at DriveThruRPG. Come find us on the convention floor Saturday, and we'll answer any niggling rules questions you have about Zweihander and chat about what you like/hate about the game. We resolve all disagreements using rock-paper-scissors, so be sure to limber up those fingers. If you can't find us on the convention floor, simply tweet @ZweihanderRPG on Twitter with the booth number you're near, and we'll meet you there.
2) Our next Kickstarter for Main Gauche has been rescheduled for early August. At first we had anticipated mid to late July, but we want to respect that many people have already budgeted for GenCon. Plus, we have a few cool new additions we slipped into the core book at the last minute, and wish to have a fully-edited manuscript prepared before turning on our Kickstarter. We think you're going to love some of the new expansive material we're adding. If you want to know more about Main Gauche, hit us up at GenCon or over on our new Reddit forum /grimandperilous, and we may give you a little taste of what's to come.
3) And finally, the ENnies! The answer is yes, we will be there in our finest of duds to raise our glasses with the other nominees. As you already know, Zweihänder was selected for Best Game and Product of the Year. It's an honor to be standing shoulder to shoulder with other titans of the OSR industry. If there ever was a year for DIY rpgs and the OSR, it's 2018! Many wonderful games were also chosen: The Dark of Hot Springs Island, Harlem Unbound, The Midderlands, Red Markets, VAM!, Frostbitten & Mutilated and Delta Green are some of our favorites. To borrow from LotFP: these awards really make a big difference for small publishers and especially the creators involved, so please take a few minutes and vote for your favorites - even if it's not Zweihänder. But seriously, please vote #1 for us because you <3 us, appreciate that Zweihänder is the world's first Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay commercial retroclone or because you like grim & perilous roleplay games.
Hope to see you at GenCon on Saturday, and wish us luck at the ENnie Awards Friday night!
