OSRG Booth at GenCon 2011... LotFP Participating!

From here:

This is the news that I couldn't say earlier. There will a booth at Gen Con featuring Old-School products from at least 5 OSR companies; Brave Halfling Publishing, Expeditious Retreat Press, Frog God Games, Goblinoid Games, and all the way from Finland, Lamentations of the Flame Princess. Suzi and I will be running the booth at the convention. The Old-School Renaissance Group has arrived and the OSR will be in force at Gen Con this year! I'm tremendously excited by this next step in the OSR.

Hopefully the booth will act as the hub for the OSR community at Gen Con. I'd like to have a "master list" of all the Old-School gaming going on at the convention at the booth to help direct people towards those games.

I also want to let the entire OSR community know that the booth is open to everyone's products as long as we have space. That means if you've published an OSR product you can have your product for sale at Gen Con 2011 with all of the other awesome OSR products already committed to the booth. Much of the strength of the OSR comes from individuals and we want to have the community there in as great a capacity as possible.

So if you're interested in having products at the booth, contact me at for the details.

LotFP will be participating. I hope to have 10 products available, which means 5 releases between now and then (including the Grindhouse Edition).

The Grindhouse Edition will either have a different box , or a cardboard sleeve, for GenCon (still to be determined). The box or sleeve will be a GenCon 2011 limited edition with exclusive artwork not to be available anywhere else. The inside of the box will be unchanged.


  1. Wow. I doubt I will be able to make it, but it's certainly on the list now!

  2. I should mention that products from Black Blade Publishing and Pacesetter Games & Simulations will be at the booth as well.

    I'm very glad to have your stuff at the booth, James!

  3. I believe that WoTC baffling actions of late have left the door wide open for the quality and ease of use that 'old school' products tend to bring to the table. Best of luck.

  4. Excellent news!
