Mission Update: GMs still needed for Gen Con 2017

The deadline for submitting events to go into the Gen Con 2017 program book is just a week away (25-Mar-2017), and we'd love for you to run our games at the show. We've also made a few changes to the program to make it easier for you to get involved. All these changes apply to anyone who's already submitted events. Thank you very much, one and all! The show will be much cooler for everyone because of you.

First, submitting events can earn you a free GM badge from the show. Check the link posted with this for more information.

Second, we reward anyone who runs our games at the show with free product from our booth. This doesn't have to be product for the same game line you run, either. You could run events and score a copy of another game you want to try, or one of our board or card games.

Here's everything you need to know...

1. Submit your Event(s)
Head to and click on "Submit an Event." Follow the instructions there to get your event(s) in the system.

Remember: the deadline for submitting events to go into the program book is one week from now: 25-Mar-2017, and the earlier an event is submitted the better the chance it will be accepted.

All games currently in print are eligible for booth credit. This includes the Mistborn Adventure Game, Fantasy Craft, and Little Wizards.

For more information, visit

Be sure to read the Event Host Policy at

2. Once your events are accepted, send us the details at Include the date(s) and time(s) your events will run, plus the games you're running and the title(s) and blurb(s) for each.

3. At Gen Con, stop by our booth before your event. We'll hand you some promotional items to hand out at your event. If your event starts before the booth opens, let us know in your email and we'll work something out.

4. Collect tickets from the players at your event and turn them in to Gen Con HQ in the envelope the show provides.

5. Come back to our booth and let us know how your event went. Tell us how many players you had, and for each player you'll get $5 in booth credit. This credit has to be used at Gen Con 2017.

Any questions? Email us at and we'll chat.

Thanks for your support! We look forward to seeing you at Gen Con 50!

We love team-driven RPGs and player-initiated missions. Dating all the way back to Classic Spycraft, our roleplaying games have let players take the reins and plan their ideal approach.

We also love indie-style design and created yet another team-driven, player-initiated RPG with indie sensibilities in the Mistborn Adventure Game.

Our friends at Scratchpad Publishing have put together something that operates in the very same space, and it looks pretty great. You might even recognize some of the art! (They hired the incredible Waclaw Wysocki, who produced the Luthadel panorama for Mistborn: House War, to do their cityscape.)

Check out Dusk City Outlaws at the link below, and let 'em know we sent ya!

Greetings everyone,

Crafty Games is looking for folks to run sessions of our roleplaying games at Gen Con 2017!

Any RPG currently in print is fair game, so the Mistborn Adventure Game, Fantasy Craft, and/or Little Wizards.

For each session you schedule and run that goes four hours or more, you'll earn credit at our booth.

Early Gen Con event submissions are now open and remain open until 19-Feb. Ideally we'd like to get events for all our RPGs submitted before then.

If you'd like more information, please drop us a line at and we'll get you all the details.

Stay Crafty!

Calamity & The Bands of Mourning in Semi-final + New Writing Excuses Episode

Adam here.

Brandon is not human. I haven’t ascertained exactly what he is. He could be a robot, which is a common theory posed by many of his readers due to his prodigious production rate. Maybe he’s an alien or some other unknown quantity, but he is most assuredly not of the human variety. This couldn’t have been made any plainer to me than it has over these last several weeks while following him around Europe.

Brandon had some type of interaction or event with his readers almost every day, many of which were signings that lasted several hours. He had meetings with publishers, and he somehow managed to continue his work on the book he’s writing. (Oh, and did I mention that there was an eight-hour time difference?) I felt constantly worn out and am still trying to recover. (I woke up at 3:00 am this morning, so that’s not going very well.) Brandon mentioned in passing a few times that he may have been fatigued. I am fairly certain that he just needed to go plug himself in to recharge his internal battery. I felt exhausted after three weeks and he spends almost half of his year traveling!

All teasing aside, this trip gave me a greater understanding of the strain Brandon puts himself under. I know why he does it. He loves and appreciates every single one of his readers and would feel negligent if he missed out on an opportunity to show that to you. I know he was grateful for your patience as you waited in line, often for many hours, to get your books signed or snag a photo with him. I will be posting pictures of some of the people Brandon met, some exceptional fan art, and maybe some cosplayers on Brandon’s social media over the next several weeks. I hope you all enjoy them as much as I did!

Calamity and The Bands of Mourning have both been voted into the Semi-Final round in the 2016 Goodreads Choice Awards, so thank you for your voting thus far! If you’d like to vote again, you can find Calamity in Young Adult Fantasy & Science Fiction, and The Bands of Mourning in Fantasy.

The Humble Bundle fantasy/sf RPG ebook bundle, that features three of Crafty Games’ Mistborn Adventure Game books, expires in just over five days. So if you’ve been curious to give them a try, now is a fantastic time.

Brandon has done quite a few interviews of late, two of which are now live. The first was with Hank Garner on the Author Stories Podcast, where they discussedBrandon’s first introduction into fantasy by his eighth grade teacher, how his two year missionary journey to Korea informed his later writing, and why fantasy resonates with people in emotionally powerful ways. The second was recorded a few weeks ago in Paris by Le Point Pop and also translated to French for any of Brandon’s readers who can read French –or who are as clever as I am and can push the translate button at the top of the page. 

In this week’s new Writing Excuses episode, Elemental Issue, with Desiree Burch, we focus on November’s elemental genre: Issue. We were joined by actor, writer, and comedian Desiree Burch. The Elemental Issue is similar to the Elemental Idea, but explores a point of social conflict, like racism, teen pregnancy, or corporate greed. Authors writing Elemental Issue stories raise questions for the readers. We talk about how to go about writing these without sounding preachy, and without writing polemics.

Last week, in chapter three reread for Warbreaker, we leave the Idrians in their respective muddles, and go to meet Lightsong in the Court of Gods. This week, in chapters four and five, Siri arrives in Hallandren, evoking consternation, frustration, and interest on the part of our POV characters.

I will be updating the twitter feed for November on Monday, but if you aren’t caught up with October’s feed, you can see it using the link below.
