The month of June is coming to a close, and that means it is time for the latest installment of The Hunters Gathering. We have a couple of things we are excited to let you know about, and updates on information we have previously released over the year. Of course, you’re always encouraged to connect with us more directly via our Community Forums and our presence on social media via any of our official accounts: Hunters Entertainment on Facebook, Outbreak: Undead on Facebook, ABCs of RPGs on Facebook, or Hunters Entertainment on Twitter.
With that out of the way we can get rolling right along to all the news.
Events & More
Gen Con 50 – As of this posting, we are a mere 49 days away from the big 50th Anniversary event! We have done our best to ensure we have ample opportunity to connect with our amazing community and fans over the weekend, including a booth in the Vendor’s Hall as well as an assortment of games and events. As expected, many of these events are selling out (or already have), but we are expanding our offerings so you don’t miss out. As soon as we have confirmation on these details we’ll be sure to pass it along so you can plan accordingly.
So be sure to take this opportunity to connect with Ivan Van Norman, Christopher De La Rosa, Caleb Cleveland, and Alex Huilman, experience all of your favorite Hunters Entertainment products, and have a grand old time! Also be sure to follow the official discussion about Gen Con 50 and Hunters Entertainment on our Community Forums which can be found here.
AetherCon Online – We have another convention we will be participating in yet this year which we are ready to announce today. AetherCon is a unique convention in that it takes place 100% online. In this way we will have the ability to connect with community members the world over who may not otherwise have the chance to come and hang out with us at a more traditional convention. At this time we are still working out all the specifics, and we’ll have more details about all of this for you in the weeks leading up to the actual event. So be sure to mark down the dates of November 10-12 so you can start planning accordingly.
Hunters Convention Circuit – We are always looking for more avenues that we can connect with our community, and we are still reviewing some options at this time. If you don’t think our currently announced appearances will work out for you try not to despair, as we’re always cooking up new stuff that might pan out better for your schedule.
Announcements & Teasers
Gamemaster’s Companion Update & Print – Since it was originally released Survivors have been requesting a print copy of the Outbreak: Undead.. Gamemaster’s Companion 2nd Edition. Well, not only will the print copies be available for sale to those attending Gen Con 50, we will also be making the book available as a Print on Demand product via DTRPG at the same time. If that wasn’t enough, this will be a freshly updated copy of the book including all new information, corrections, and more from the original PDF release.
If you would like to grab a PDF copy of the book you can do that now over on DTRPG.
Rag & Bone Man Store – The commotion of Gen Con is likely to draw out one of the many enigmatic Rag & Bone Men that enable commerce in the withered society in the world of Pandemic Play. Which one it is that shows up will be determined by the choices of the community in the coming weeks over social media. We’re hosting a series of micro scenarios. Those following us on social will be able to directly participate in and shape the eventual outcome. So if you are participating in Pandemic Play this season you will not want to miss out on this opportunity. Keep an eye on Facebook and Twitter for more details in the next couple of days.
Outbreak: Undead.. Core Rules – The editing process is still under way with the Core Rules, and so progress on the project continues. If you don’t recall, the Core Rules will be the expanded, uncondensed, game rules that have been first explored in our Pocket Book releases so far. As this project moves into later stages we will be sure to let you know more.
Artist Search – A few top-tier artists are being courted to take on the art lead of Outbreak: Undead.. 2nd Edition. Keep your eyes peeled for the final announcement as to whose vision will drive forward our world of survival horror!
Thanks for joining us once again, and we’ll catch you next time around!
