Gen Con Panels featuring Posthuman & Other Awesome Folks

We've organized four panels at Gen Con this year featuring Posthumans and our brilliant & convivial industry colleagues. We expect some interesting conversations; come check them out! (Click on the titles for Gen Con's official listings).

Sci-Fi RPG Designer Roundtable: Challenges in Crafting Original Settings & Systems

Friday, 11:00 - 12:00 pm
Crowne Plaza : Grand Central Bllrm A/B
What makes for a great SF RPG? How do designers find the right balance between scientific realism and fun gameplay? Which is better: space broccoli, space koalas, space octopi, or space business cards? Game designers Rob Boyle (Eclipse Phase, Shadowrun 4e), Epidiah Ravichol (Dread, Vast & Starlit), Jared Sorensen (FreeMarket, Schism), and Brennan Taylor (Bulldogs!) talk about the art & science of making kick-ass sci-fi games.

The Campaign Doctors

Friday, 1:00 - 2:00 pm
Crowne Plaza : Grand Central Bllrm A/B
A PAX East favorite comes to Gen Con! Campaign Doctors Luke Crane (Burning Wheel, Torchbearer), Jack Graham (Eclipse Phase), Robin D. Laws (Gumshoe, Hillfolk), & Amanda Valentine (Firefly, Marvel Heroic Roleplaying) solve your campaign problems. This is an audience participation panel. Bring your questions about how to make your group back home better. The Campaign Doctors have the answers -- but you might not like them!

Schooled!: Teaching with Games in the Classroom & Beyond

Saturday, 2:00 - 3:00 pm
Crowne Plaza : Grand Central Bllrm A/B
Game designer/educators Jessica Banks (Atlas Games), Brian Cross (Eclipse Phase, Shadowrun 4e), Michelle Lyons-MacFarland (Growling Door Games), and Chris Sagovac (Webster University) talk about their experiences using games to educate at school and at home.

What's up with Posthuman/Eclipse Phase

Saturday, 2:00 - 3:00 pm
Crowne Plaza : Grand Central Bllrm C
Find out what we've been up to this past year and what we have planned for the upcoming year. We will discuss all Posthuman projects but will particularly focus on the Eclipse Phase game line.

And lastly, check here for a complete listing of all Posthuman-sponsored events at Gen Con this year, including games of EP and demos of Shinobi Clans. There are still a few open slots!

We can't wait to see y'all in Indy!

I know it might not be

I know it might not be possible, but could you please try and organise a recording of the panels? I would love to hear what you guys have to say, especially in the Future of PHS+/EP panel, but there is no way in hell I could ever afford flying across the Atlantic. Even a really shitty iPhone recording would make me an extremely happy scotsman.

If it makes you feel any

If it makes you feel any better, neither can Brian.

Gen Con screwed us a bit on the scheduling there.

I was already planning to

I was already planning to attempt to record panels with my phone (anticipate terrible audio). I'm attending Schooled! so I'm missing What's up with Posthuman/Eclipse Phase, but I'll also be at campaign Doctors and the roundtable. Anyone else?
