Christina Stiles will be attending GenCon 2012 as an Industry Insider Guest of Honor. This will be her first GenCon ever, and she will be representing the women of game design! Come out and meet her, and ask her about the upcoming release of the Rogue Mage RPG Player’s Handbook available in pdf from Misfit Studios on August 24th. The pdf is currently in the hands of those who backed the initial Kickstarter, and books are being printed and offered for sale through BellaRosa Books in early September. Copies are expected to be for sale at Faith Hunter’s booth at Dragon*Con, as well.
Here’s Christina’s GenCon schedule. She’ll be hanging out with several of the kobolds of Kobold Press (aka Open Design) while at the show. Also note, a book she contributed to with Kobold Press/Open Design, Streets of Zobeck, under lead designer Ben McFarland is up for an Ennie award. Fingers crossed.
