Psi-punk at VirtuaCon '13

Psi-punk is coming to VirtuaCon '13! Player sign-ups went live yesterday, August 26th, and slots are filling up fast. If you'd like a chance to play Psi-punk with me via Google Hangouts, head on over to the RPGGeek.com Player Sign-up Announcement.

Wait, What's VirtuaCon?

Unofficially dubbed "the best 3 days in virtual gaming," VirtuaCon is RPGGeek.com's online convention. 

Here's what RPGGeek officially has to say:

Virtuacon is the gaming convention you attend from the comfort of your own home. It is happening Friday October 18th through Sunday October 20th, 2013. Like traditional conventions, we've got industry speakers, plenty of slotted gaming events, contests, and $1500 in prizes thanks to our generous sponsors! Our focus is on Role-Playing games, but if you've played and enjoyed games like Castle Ravenloft, Shadow Hunters or Shadows over Camelot, you are sure to find some amazing adventure in Role-Playing. This is the real deal - experienced Game Masters at the top of their craft to run you through a carefully selected set of adventures. Don't miss this opportunity for a live Role-Playing gaming session!
Psi-punk specifically will be running in Time Slot C (Friday, October 18th at 7:00 p.m. PST, or 19-Oct-2013 at 02:00 UTC). No experience is necessary to play, but you do need to sign up soon because there are a limited number of slots and they're going fast.

If you don't get a chance to join us to play, this event will be broadcast live via Google Hangouts On Air and recorded to YouTube, so you can watch the game as it happens or later at your convenience.

While your'e at it, sign up for other great VirtuaCOn games, panels, and contests. There is a lot happening -- 84 games, a dozen or so industry speaker panels, and tons of contests. It's going to be huge!

Finally, as a reminder, Psi-punk and other Accessible Games products are on sale for 20% off until the end of August. There are only a few days left, so head on over to DriveThruRPG and pick up your copy.

Psi-punk On Sale

I wasn't at GenCon this year, which means I unfortunately didn't get a chance to show off Psi-punk at the country's biggest gaming convention. As a consolation prize to myself, and to everyone who is coming back from the con with a little less change in their pocket, I've decided to launch a post-GenCon sale for all Accessible Games products.
From now until August 31st, 2013, all Accessible Games products are 20% off through RPGNow and DriveThruRPG. This includes Psi-punk in PDF, softcover, and hardcover varieties, Colors of Grey, and the Game Publishing Lessons Learned e-book.

If you haven't pulled the trigger on Psi-punk yet, now's the best time to do so!

Also, please remember to tell your friends and to leave ratings!

The Floating City of Downhang

One of our awesome Psi-punk backers, +ASH LAW, created a new micro-setting for use with the game and has allowed me to share it with everyone.

Downhang, the Floating City, is a detailed new location filled with all manner of organizations. It has the highest ratio of psychics to non-psychics outside of any research facility, and it's a veritable dead-zone for WiFi.

Several different districts and organizations have been created with quite a bit of detail, so if you're interested in seeing what other people are doing with the Psi-punk setting I highly encourage you to check it out.

Ash also posted this picture of the Psi-punk books (both hardcover and softcover) and t-shirt received for being a backer. Check it out:

For future reference, you can find both the download and the image at the Psi-punk page at the Accessible Games website.

What did you think of Downhang? Did it inspire you to create a new location of your own? If so, I'd love to hear about it!
