Origins 2018 – Minis!

While not hugely prominent, there’s no shortage of minis-based gaming ~

GrogHeads Newsdesk, 27 June 2018

Minis games are spread across 2 different gaming halls, and you can always find other minis tucked away in other gaming, too (like OGRE!).  Some of the minis displays in the exhibit hall can be borderline breathtaking.

Origins 2018 – My First Time Running an Event at Origins

A behind-the-scenes look at a GM for an RPG event ~

Avery Abernethy, 26 June 2018

Although I’ve run a Cons before going all the way back to 1983, I’ve not run at Origins.  My experience was quite favorable.

Rogue Cthulhu

My event ran under the Rogue Cthulhu group.  Rogue is quite strict on whom and what they allow to be run under their logo.

They must see you as a player before they will let you run an event.  The leaders of the group also review the materials before you run to maintain a certain level of quality control.  Rogue does not run anything that has been published previously, although they will run one or two new, unreleased scenarios by Chaosium every year. 

Origins 2018 – More Gameplay!

CentCom2018 SPLASH gameplay

Yeah, there really was that much gameplay ~

GrogHeads Newsdesk, 25 June 2018

There’s no shortage of gameplay at Origins, across the show.  There’s some great wargaming going out outside of the GrogHeads area.
