Well... this will be my first GenCon *everyone wave at the n00b*, but I'm coming with some veterans.
True Dungeon (of course)
Dresen Files RPG (Fate - I want to GM this eventually but would like to PLAY it first)
Honorverse RPG (Final Sword Productions - if anyone's running it)
DnD 5th ED AL (if there's a special or something neat I can't do at home)
I have books and a character and stuff for Pathfinder, but that tends to be with my spice, and he's not attending this year (it's complicated). Also, neither of my tour guides really play that, so not much point in going alone for something I'm not REALLY motivated to do. DFRPG, Honorverse.... those I would buck up and go alone for if needed.
Other than that, I might do some of the more interesting SPA stuff and some demos in the dealer's room.
I don't want to inundate myself the first time out of the gate and be burned out by Friday at noon, so I'm trying to "pack light" for my first encounter. *lol*
D&D 5e and the FFG Star Wars rpg. I have one of the Star Wars core books, but I want to actually play instead of GM. I love the system it uses!
I have no idea what to expect (first timer) but it would be great if they were teaching newbs x wing. I know many people that play it, ok, I know of them, but I would like to give it a go with someone else learning
I'm looking forward to some DnD. My wife and I enjoy playing together. I'm also running a sizeable old World of Darkness LARP event on Thursday night.
Thought of something else:
Exalted 2nd Edition! Preferably Solar, Dragon-Blooded or Lunar, since those are the types I have the books for and could create characters for.
I hope to be plaing and running D&D Adventurer's League games (5th edition)!
I'd love to play some Mongoose Traveller.
Also, and even more, I'd move or change anything to play some In Nomine
As assistant coordinator this year at Fight in the Skies Society-- we are trying to bring a whole new program in with tons of new game titles and of course, keeping some of the annual traditions...
Ideas being kicked around this year-- NOTHING WRITTEN IN STONE--
X-Wing on Sunday (may be a tournement, may be just free play for tickets)
full runs of TIME Stories
the return of the Agricola tourney on Thurs night
lots of Cards Against Humanity
Dawn Patrol of course
a bunch of Gale Force Nine games (Firefly, SOA, WWE, Spartacus, etc)
GIANT Concept game
We are happy to hear any ideas that you might have... this is just a very small taste of what we offer-- hope to see tons of you at the tables!
I'll probably play DND 5th and Hackmaster

Of Pacts and Prophecy: The Missing Ones
Thursday, August 4, Noon-4pm
GMs: Matt, Tom, Ed
Short Description – As the city of New Orleans recovers from the destruction caused by Hurricane Katrina, the supernatural world is abuzz with a series of mortals gone missing. Are forces unleashed by the storm seeking vengeance and power in The Big Easy? A BYOV Mystery.
Long Description – New Orleans. 3 months after Hurricane Katrina. People go missing all the time in The Big Easy, but with all the chaos and destruction from the storm, who will miss a few more? The problem is, none of the Powers seem to know who is responsible, and if the count goes too high, mortals will start asking questions. A meeting has been called to figure out who's really behind the missing persons. Something in the supernatural world has changed, and things are not as they should be. Those in the know have been invited to The Babylon Club on Bourbon Street. It's time to discuss business and get to the bottom of this debacle before the muggles start asking questions. So, here you are. There's business to attend to. You'll be seeing some old faces, both enemies and friends, but tonight's not about old scores and past lives. Or is it?
Costumes encouraged but not required.Website - http://pactsandprophecy.wordpress.com
A Breath Before The Gallows
GMs: Tom and Matt
A military tribunal, a tyrant charged with genocide, a war between races for a mysterious planet. You await the verdict. But you have plans of your own. Sold out? Hit us up @BYOV_Games.
Two races war for a mysterious planet and the wealth of energy it contains. But one has gone too far. Five million dead in a flash, and an infamous general faces a tribunal from his own military. The charge: genocide. The evidence has been heard, the defense has rested, and billions from both races await the verdict. But you have plans of your own, and you may not be satisfied with guilt or innocence. What can you accomplish in this brief lull? What will the tribunal decide? And will you survive the storm that may come? Character-related requests can be made after you have a ticket. Byov.com, Facebook, or @BYOV_Games. Sold out at the Con? Hit us up online anyway, or just show up!
The House On the B-Movie Backlot!
GMs: Mar and Caren
A movie studio in rocky times attempts to salvage their latest horror picture. Hopefuls look to audition for the show and others seek tinsel town fame. A BYOV Dramedy.
Hollywood CA ’94-Foreign investors buy a movie studio with a rocky past and are trying to save a horror film in progress by turning it into a bankable B--Movie classic! Production continues on a historic movie lot cursed by decades of flops, scandals and unexplained accidents. Industry buzz builds as an expensive looking House is revealed as the new movie set, but strangely seems to appear overnight. A big budget movie seems risky, but failure is an alien concept to this Production Company; they believe that Notorious Location + Eclectic Cast+ Young Director= Money Making Magic! Most of the original talent was retained, but some roles must be recast. For one night only, hopefuls with head shots are invited to an open audition and ambitious skilled creatives are welcome to interview for crew vacancies (experience working with monstrous personalities is a plus). Age 18+
The Fey:The Lost Sithen
GMs: Ed and Mar
The entire Goblin royal bloodline has died. The Goblin Sithen is no more. We now have a rare meeting of the royalty of the remaining Fey Courts to investigate what has happened. A BYOV mystery.
Each of the remaining Fey Courts has sent representatives to this Council: The Shining Ones of the Seelie; The dark and seductive UnSeelie; The diminuitive and secretive Demi-Fey; and even the sinister Sluagh. Their goal is to discover what happened to the Goblin royalty and the Sithen itself. And more importantly (to some) decide what needs to be done to prevent anything like this from happening again. Courtly manners are expected at all times, but there is tension in the air and the Fey are known for their tempers... They are nothing, if not proud. Bring your best negotiating skills, and maybe some veiled threats as well. If one of the Fey Courts can be destroyed, are any of the others truly safe? Costumes encouraged but not required
