Events & More
AetherCon VI Online – As we previously announced we will be in attendance for AetherCon VI in full force November 10-12, 2017. We’ll have a Virtual Vendor Booth available for fans to stop by (some of us may even pop in live via Hangouts to chat), we’ll be running a couple of games of Outbreak: Undead.. 2nd Edition via Roll20 (play a game with the developers), and to top it off we have contributed a bit a merchandise for some of the many prizes available to gamers over the course of the event!
You can register to participate in our games now. On offer for the event we will have House on the Hill, a classic Scenario that has been enjoyed by fans since the 1st Edition where Survivors do their best to survive the horde which will be run by Alex Huilman. We will also have The Ghost Ship, where the Survivors of a deadly mutating plague must re-route or destroy a cruise liner before it runs ground which will be run by lead developer Christopher De La Rosa.
It should be a great time all around, and there is plenty more to do at the event to give you that full convention experience from the comfort of your own home. We hope to see you online!
Midwinter Gaming Convention 2018 – At this time we are pleased to announce the Hunters Entertainment will be in attendance for Midwinter Gaming Convention 2018 to kick off the new year on January 11-14! We have a fair bit of things planned for this, and we’ll get to releasing some of those details over the course of the coming weeks. Needless to say we will be coming to the Vendor Hall, we’ll have some games, and we’ll have a few other surprises you’ll need to just wait to get the details on for now.
We’ve been going to this event for a few years now, and we’ve been loving the experience! Every chance we have to connect up with the fantastic people who support us is humbling and amazing. So be sure to mark the dates on your calendars so you can come out and see us.
Announcements & Teasers
The Chronicles of Exandria Volume 1 – Critters will be happy to know that we have received the advance copies of the upcoming Chronicles of Exandria Volume 1 – the official art book of the hit show Critical Role as seen on Geek & Sundry. You can find out more details by heading over here on the G&S website.
Outbreak: Undead.. 2nd Edition Kickstarter – We are now mere weeks away from the launch of our crowdfunding effort to bring the Core Rules of a new generation of survival horror to (un)life. Of course, that is just the tip of the proverbial spear as we have some additional things we’ll be talking about once the Kickstarter launches officially that will be of interest to all Survivors ready to dive into all that 2nd Edition has to offer. We are super excited to finally get this out to everyone and realizing the full potential of what the Starter Kit and Gamemaster’s Companion first explored.
Don’t forget to swing over and register to receive an email notification when the project goes live to be among the first to know!
Kids on Bikes RPG – We are very pleased to announce the newest RPG that we will be publishing in partnership, Kids on Bikes, a game of “Strange Adventures in the 80s” by Jonathan Gilmour and Doug Levandowski. It is simple in execution and provides plenty of room for a rich storytelling experience, taking you into the strange and terrifying unknown that lurks just beneath the surface of suburbia. Suitable for a one-off session or an ongoing campaign, this one is bound to bring hours of excitement and entertainment for gamers of all ages!
We’ll have more details for you as we get ready to launch the Kickstarter to get this project out the door and into the hands of the community.
That is all for now everyone, but be sure to drop back in next month for more exciting news!
