Top Gaming Talent Comes to Atlanta for Dragon Con

Designers and Voice Actors for Best Known, Top Selling and Fan Favorite
Video and Table Top Games Make Plans To Share Their Thoughts at Dragon Con 2015

Gamer and actress Felicia Day, voice actor Mark Meer, top video game designers Jonathan LeCraft and Ian Frazier, and a Murderer’s Row of table top game designers will be part of the fun at Dragon Con, Atlanta’s internationally known pop culture, fantasy, sci-fi and gaming convention.


“While the cosplay and our celebrity guests get a lot of attention, Dragon Con is actually one of the largest gaming conventions in the nation. Our panel discussions and presentations are as good as you will see anywhere,” convention co-chair Dave Cody said. “Our overall games programming features voice actors, game designers and other guests from the worlds of table top and video gaming, as well as the opportunity to play tabletop and LAN gaming in casual and tournament formats.”

Video game pioneer and American astronaut Richard “Lord British” Garriott, who created the Ultima and Tabla Rasa games, will be on hand to talk about his latest project, Shroud of the Avatar, which is expected to be released this year.

The TCGplayer.com returns this year with an exhaustive schedule of HeroClix competitive play including the Realms Open Championship and 2015 ROC World Cup Super Qualifier Event.
And the National Security Decision Making Game (NSDMG) led by Mark McDonagh, a retired Navy Captain and co-designer of the game, returns to Dragon Con 2015.

More than 65,000 people are expected to attend Dragon Con 2015, filling downtown Atlanta over the four-day Labor Day weekend, September 4 to September 7, with events and activities across AmericasMart Building #2 and five host hotels – Hyatt Regency Atlanta, Marriott Marquis, Hilton Atlanta, Westin Peachtree and Sheraton Atlanta.

Mark Meer is the voice of Commander Shepard in BioWare’s acclaimed Mass Effect trilogy. Actress Felicia Day became an internet sensation after launching her web series The Guild, loosely based on her life as a gamer and continues to appear in gaming-related Internet media.
Designers from the top game studios including Blizzard (World of Warcraft), Bioware (Mass Effect, Star Wars: The Old Republic), Cloud Imperium (Star Citizens), HiRez Studios (Smite) will be on hand, as well as designers from Artix Entertainment and several other independent developers and studios.

“We are very excited to welcome Jonathan LeCraft, sr. designer from World of Warcraft and Ian Frazier, lead designer for Mass Effect: Andromeda, to Dragon Con 2015,” said Kevin Stallard, director of the Video Gaming track.

“We also have the talent behind the three bestselling table top games on the market, including Monte Cook (Dungeons & Dragons), Rob Schwalb, (Dungeons & Dragons), Jason Buhlman (Pathfinder), Kenneth Hite (GURPS), and Erik Mona (Dungeons & Dragons),” Cody said. “Add to this Jay Little, who designed both the hit miniatures game X-Wing as well as the leading table top RPG Edge of the Empire, and we have a dynamite line-up of table top game designers this year.”

The National Security Decision Making Game presents players with a range of real world issues that they must decide how to solve, with each play assuming the role of a different political leader or deliberative body. The game will be offered seven times, five using current global geopolitical issues and two relying on historical scenarios. In addition to the game scenarios, each lasting 4 to 6 hours, McDonagh and his team will offer more than a dozen lectures on various geopolitical subjects, such as the Cuban Missile Crisis, the evolution of submarine warfare or apocalyptic scenarios.

JJ Abrams Spills First Order Details


Empire Online has just reported that Abrams made comments that give us a bit of insight into the Star Wars universe after Return of the Jedi.

Abrams said:

“Kylo Ren is not a Sith,” confirms JJ Abrams in the new issue of Empire. “He works under Supreme Leader Snoke, who is a powerful figure on the Dark Side of the Force.

That all came out of conversations about what would have happened if the Nazis all went to Argentina but then started working together again?’” Abrams reveals. “What could be born of that? Could The First Order exist as a group that actually admired The Empire? Could the work of The Empire be seen as unfulfilled? And could Vader be a martyr? Could there be a need to see through what didn’t get done?”

Star Wars.com has just revealed that to kick of the reveal of The Force Awakens toys, a worldwide YouTube stream will take place, being aired from various countries at varying times, each revealing a new toy, until the culmination of the day at midnight on what has been dubbed “Force Friday”.
