PAX was a blast, and we’re finally recovered. So I thought you might like an update as to what’s going on with Burning Wheel and BWHQ.
Burning Wheel Turns 10
November 1st, 2012 marks the tenth anniversary of the publication of Burning Wheel. We’re going to celebrate!
Burning Con 2012
Burning Con is happening! We’ll celebrate our 10th birthday there. We’re hoping to book dates at the end of October. I’ll post more about that as soon as I know it.
Also, we learned a lot about running our own con last year and we’re excited to apply those lessons this year. Expect to hear more about running hacks at Burning Con, GMing tutorials, and a beginner’s track!
Other 2012 Cons
At the moment, I’m planning on attending PAX Prime in Seattle in August and Connecticon in Hartford in July. We will not be attending Origins or Gen Con this year.
We’re working on three games at BWHQ. Unfortunately, none look likely to be ready for publication this summer. We’re dedicated to producing quality games, as best as we’re able. Sometimes that means you can’t rush the playtesting and writing process. As soon as we think the games are ready, we’ll get them out to you!
Other Fun Stuff
Since we’re not publishing, we thought we could do some other fun stuff in the meantime: t-shirts, custom dice and laminates (finally!). If you have any other suggestions, let me know!
Thanks for your continued support. We couldn’t and wouldn’t do this without you.
From April 6-8, we’ll be in Boston, Mass for the fabulous PAX East show.
We have a booth and demo space in the tabletop area (next to the Strat and Vincent and Joshua).
Friday at 12 noon, I’m giving an introduction to Burning Wheel.
Saturday at 12:30, I’m on the Campaign Doctors panel with Joshua (Shock, Mechaton) and Jack Graham (Eclipse Phase).
Saturday at 6 PM, I’m giving a talk called The D&D You Never Knew. It’s about D&D from the early 80s. It’s going to blow your mind.
Hope to see you all there!

We’re puttering away behind the scenes here. Meanwhile, check out these cool Burning Wheel related things:
Michael Prescott made a cool little chart for adding thematic details to your game.
and Totally Guy recorded himself reading the hub and spokes!
Our Burning Empires supplement, Bloodstained Stars, is now available as a PDF from Drive Thru.

Thank you to everyone who tweeted @Archaia. You made this happen!

Holy cats! The Mouse Guard RPG Boxed Set is listed on MTV Geek’s “Best Introductory Hobby Gaming Gift.”
Great news! I hope you all get a nice square box for Christmas (or your gift-giving holiday of choice).

Wow, Mouse Guard Boxed Set won a Golden Geek! Thanks everybody!
Burning Apocalypse Con Was a Smashing Success

Thank you all.
