Re: Hyphen-Con 14 (2018) - Pimp Your Games Thread

I have two games that I would like to run:

1. Blades in the Dark - the original! Become a gang of criminals trying to make it in the dirty, dark, industrial city of Doskvol!

2. Arabian World - an Al Qadim conversion for Dungeon World. Fantasy adventure in a world of genies and flying carpets!

Incidentally, Kore has moved, which also means the location of HyphenCon has moved too!

The new address is:
