This is a heads up to anyone who has ever wanted to game with a game designer, or who has ever looked at Eberron and wished they could query the mind that came up with it.
Keith Baker, the creator of the Eberron setting, is taking 2009 to explore the country (and parts beyond). He’s looking to trade gaming for hospitality and meet a diverse group of gamers along the way. The basic deal: He’ll run one game of Eberron for three nights of sleeping space. You’ll provide the sleeping space and show him something cool in your town, some game he wouldn’t have a chance to play in otherwise or some tourist attraction that isn’t to be found anywhere else. He’ll do some work while he’s there and possibly blog about the experience.
This is a pretty cool idea. Traveling like this is an incredible way to meet your audience for future products and to connect with the gaming community. Great idea Keith, hope to see you down in my next of the woods on this journey!
