I still haven't had time to pull pictures together for a full St. Michel report. Here's one brief story from the weekend:
My son brought one of his gaming college friends along for his first time at the convention. Having heard from my son beforehand about the NQSYW and having been press-ganged immediately upon arrival into filling out Scenario 3, he asked afterward about why he hadn't seen too many other Charge! games going on. My son's reply: "Dad and Ross are like people who take their antique car out for a ride now and then." I must admit that I'm so used to doing these games that I don't think of Old School Gaming in quite that way, although a famous gamer wandered by in the middle of things and opined that "Charge! projects are like the weather; everybody talks about it, but nobody does anything."
Upon reflection, I don't recall seeing many (if any) other Charge! games at our conventions. Perhaps I should wonder why we don't have emulators?
