The start of the month was Gen Con 2020. The pandemic made it an online only convention. I felt the way it was executed was excellent, even if it showed off some of the current limitations of an online convention at this point in time. The Good Gen Con 2020 got the basics right. To play any game online, you need some way to connect. Roll20 and Zoom require links, Fantasy Grounds… Read More

COVID-19 has dramatically changed convention schedules with most bring canceled (for good reason). But people still want to play their games, and everyone at JBE wants to join in on the fun. Right now we are scheduled to attend three virtual conventions. Virtual KoboldCon 2020, May 1-3 Con of Champions, May 23-25 PaizoCon Online, May 26-31 Fear the Conline 2: Going the Social Distance, June 19-20 We hope that you will join… Read More

It is convention season and we at JBE want to help every GM running a roleplaying game at the con—whether it is published by my company or not—run something that players will remember. For a publisher, an introductory con game is a chance to sell players on your product. For a home GM running at a con, it is a chance for you to get experience running a game and share your… Read More

Just over a week ago was the Origins Game Fair in Columbus, Ohio. I went as an attendee with my daughter so I can give the perspective of not only a gamer but also a parent, and I can say that without a doubt that we both had fun. It is one of the largest tabletop conventions in the country and well worth your time to check out. Origins fills the Greater… Read More

Yesterday I got my first chance to play the demo of the Pathfinder Playtest, and I couldn’t be more excited to have been apart of it. I played in a 2 hour demo with pregen characters. So I would like to share with you my impressions of the game. Before I begin, I would like to say that I am not going to talk about the adventure itself since I don’t want… Read More

Monday morning, I am heading out towards Columbus, Ohio for Origins 2018. As I do with all the other conventions I attend, I will be sharing pictures on Twitter and Instagram as well as sharing my experience of the convention on JonBrazer.com when I get back. Here’s my links to PAX Unplugged and Dreamation. I will be attending as a gamer and not as a publisher. If you see me, I hope… Read More

If you want to know how to make your gaming conversation gender inclusive, to make it a welcoming place for all gamers no matter what their background, look no further than Dreamation. This convention, as well as DexCon, both if which are run by Dexposure, is a local con for me, located in North-Central New Jersey. It hosts board games, miniature war games, LARPs, and of course role playing games. It was… Read More

This past weekend I was at PAX Unplugged, and I am glad I got to go. I got to play in my very first Call of Cthulhu game. I had fun with a new character in D&D. I met a gamer I had previously only interacted with online. I even met a fellow Captain Hammer. They even had a diversity lounge with some really cool people. And of course, I snagged some… Read More

We mentioned last week a number of Fifth Edition adventures that are perfect for running at a convention if you are looking to run something a little different than the norm. We also have a number of Pathfinder adventures that make excellent convention games that you should check out. Deadly Delves: The Gilded Gauntlet – Level 9 The city of Hunstoc is experiencing a rash of calamity. Livestock and horses are falling… Read More
