An overview of how Mad Brew keeps abreast of current events and news in the hobby. He also gives an open invitation for others to share their own methods.
Conflict Games has recently released the Conflict Roleplaying Rulebook, “a tactically-driven system for player vs. player roleplaying using unlimited d20 rules.” Conflict is exactly what it sounds like, a PVP system for Pathfinder RPG.
I’m proud to be able to announce that Mad Brew Labs will be appearing in the second volume of the Open Game Table, along with 32 other blogs. The Labs also participated in the ignagural edition of the OGT last year. Being honored twice in row is astonishing to me because not only were there far more nominated blog posts this year, I actually had TWO articles make the cut!
If you’re a technophile with a smartphone, chances are you’ve heard of social geolocation sites/apps like FourSquare or Gowalla. These location-based mobile social networks allow you to announce what you’re doing and gain rewards for visiting new venues and many other behaviors.
Last November, Neoncon introduced a series of presentations from tabletop gaming industry insiders called GamesU. Luminaries like Eric Mona, Ed Healy, and John Wick. I think Neoncon did a great job executing GamesU and I especially enjoyed being able to stream a couple of the presentations live.
Now, Neoncon is editing the presentations and placing them on their YouTube channel. The first video they released was the keynote by Eric Mona on the topic of Pen & Paper Games in the 21st Century. I obviously have a large interest in how roleplaying games will evolve in the next decade, but this article is to address the latest video released from GamesU, Marcelo Figueroa’s Live the Dream: Building a Career in the Games Industry.
