So GenCon was a real hoot (my write-up is here), if a little shorter than I would have liked, but I am definitely in the throes of what is commonly known as “the GenCon Surge”, which is the rush of enthusiasm and excitement you get after the Best 4 Days of Gaming, so to speak. Last year it was this rush, along with a hearty dose of appreciative enthusiasm from the original GenCon playtesters, that really got the Old School Hack Beta out the door, and I’m hoping to channel this year’s energy similarly.
I ran a short one-shot at GenCon for the Roleplaying Public Radio guys and they recorded it. If you’ve got two-and-a-half hours or so of ear-time free, feel free to give it a listen; it was a fast, fun romp with some really creative characters!

A few more cool links I want to share:
- Ethan Gilsdorf of Wired Magazine’s GeekDad gave Old School Hack a shoutout in their GenCon wrap-up article.
- A blogger named Jim Dickinson wrote up a really heartwarming Actual Play story about playing Old School Hack with his kids, this one brought a tear to my eye.
- Matt over at Lapsus Calumni threw together some pretty awesome OSH wallpapers, both in iPad size and full-screen, check them out!
Thanks again for all the awesome support from everyone!
