In Weird West America, Deputy shoots you

Doomtown Reloaded is launched at Gencon this coming weekend, with a worldwide release date set for September 8th.

Writing the official pre-launch FAQ for a card game from scratch is even less fun than I thought it was going to be. Doing it just from PDFs of the cards and rulebook? Yeah…

My brain hurts. Still, one of the AEG forum mods made this rather nifty set of Doomtown Avatars including ones scaled for DW/LJ size, so you get Deputy Wendy Cheng pointing a rifle at you for now.

There's even a chance I might consider changing my default icon, if I'm to be the Sheriff of this game then I might as well be the Sheriff, at least on occasions.

Reading around various news sites, and the pre Con buzz for several of them is that D&D5th and Doomtown are the games people are anticipating at Gencon. Given some of the other games launching, that's impressive. It also means a whole lot of geeky gamers asking me pesky questions for quite some time. Which, on the one hand, is good, a succesfull (re)launch means the game has legs. On the other hand…

Oh, I setup [community profile] doomtown, but haven't a clue what to do with it yet.
