Conn.'s First Old School/Vintage RPG Con, Oct 16!

Just a reminder:

The first annual Connecticut Old School/Vintage RPG Gaming Convention, FalCon, is being held Saturday October 16th, 2010 from 9:30 AM to 11:00 PM at the Falcon Grove in Middletown, CT. The address is 144 Prout Hill Road, Middletown, CT.

The con is focused on older RPG's, not just older versions of D&D. It promises to be a great time, and lots of slots are already listed. You can pay at the door.

Check out the site for more info:

Hope to see you all there!

EVE: A Sandbox Space MMORPG Based in Part on Traveller

The game has been out for a while, but I just heard of it. Has anyone played this? Check these links out....looks awesome as hell.

Unlike most MMO's, it seems to have one server, meaning anyone who plays the game interact with each other. That's 300,000 people. Even more interesting, there appears to have been a huge secret infiltration over the course of a year from one massive guild to another, resulting in switching sides in the middle of an enormous battle, resulting in major gamechanging events, as the formerly larger guild fell.

A game that allows for such sandboxyness to take place gets a thumbs up without me even having to play it.
