This one that’s coming is going to be a busy weekend.
There is the Comics Fair in Rome, Romics.
There is the book festival I Portici di Carta, where two kilometers of the main street in central Turin willbe turned into a book stall.
And in Milan there’s StraniMondi, the coolest science fiction convention ever, where all the cool writers and readers hang out together in harmony.
And I’m sure I’m forgetting a pair of book or comic or gaming related events that will take place over the weekend.
And I will attend none of these.
Because I will be joining the Savages in Pinerolo, the home base of the old Savoy cavalry and the seat of the Pinerole event – not a convention, more like a bunch of roleplayers spending a day doing what they like: playing.
And for Pinerole I’ll be mastering an exclusive scenario for Hope & Glory.
A short scenario called, believe it or not, The Abode of the Snows.
A thousand-years old mystery.
Guys in furs… or furry, anyway.
It will be fun.
I hope I’ll be able to post a few photos afterwards.
PS: I’ve been asked, and I’m trying to set up a few online games to showcase Hope & Glory. It looks feasible. Stay tuned, we’ll start taking names after the Pinerole.
