Gen Con 2018: Where are Shane and I-Hsien?

We are at Gen Con from August 1st through August 5th, 2018. We’re loosely adhering to the following schedule, but be sure to follow I-Hsien and Shane on Twitter for the latest update on our goings-on. We’re always looking to meet up with friends, especially if you suggest we get a beer, and Twitter is the easiest way to reach us during Gen Con. And if you find us, you’ll get your hands on some new TPT swag.

Outside of this schedule, we’ll spend most of our time wandering the dealer hall, dropping in on interesting-sounding seminars (fun fact: they’re free and no one checks tickets!), or cracking open and testing out our Gen Con loot, likely in the lobby of the Marriott Downtown (350 W Maryland St., across from the ICC) or Omni hotels.

TPT #156: Vampire The Masquerade 5th Edition Review

Hosts I-Hsien and Shane don their trench coats, apply their eyeliner, and sharpen their fangs as they bite into the brand new Vampire The Masquerade 5th Edition to tell you how it tastes. They discuss the latest advancements to the World of Darkness storyline, the revamped mechanics by lead designer Kenneth Hite, and weigh in on White Wolf’s trademark edginess in this extra-long episode.
