Ryan Macklin, friend of The Wolf (we've both spent time under the Woodsman's axe), and immanent creature of the Internet, will be packing his backs and coming back to Oakland to game with us at Big Bad Con. So far this is what we've got on the schedule from Ryan:

We Give Back

In 2016, Big Bad Con officially became a 501(c)(3) charity. And we've got big plans. Not only are we offering quality games at the con each October, we are developing a community outreach program to bring games to young players all year round.

She just got back from the Burning Wheel room and she's still putting out the flames. What? What's this? A Burning Wheel room, where all the Burning Wheel HQ games will be run? Yes indeed!
