Balticon 50 (part 1)
This past weekend at Balticon 50 was a blast! I was there representing Corefun Studios, the publisher of science-fiction RPG Solar Echoes, and was sponsored by Balticon to run game demos in their RPG game room. Before I found the room, I was overwhelmed by the crowds of people present for the 50th anniversary of Balticon. I visited the dealer's room and was impressed with the immense number of options for a sci-fi enthusiast like myself to part with my money (I'll admit, I did spend a little!) When I found the RPG game room, I was shocked by the beautiful view of the Baltimore harbor. The room had great table space, a table with water waiting for the thirsty, and a comfortable gaming atmosphere ready for RPG gamers to dive into their imaginations. This weekend was a lot of fun, and I met a lot of great people during the many Solar Echoes missions I ran. Whether we were building characters together, stopping a bank heist, or blowing up robots, Solar Echoes brought together all kinds of people. This week, I'll touch on a few highlights during the games we played!
