If you will be at Gen Con, we'd love to see you and give you a little gift! We'll primarily be in two areas: the First Exposure Playtest Hall (FEPH) - generally at table 14 - and Hall A: Black (although we may also be in other Hall A or Hall B areas close by). Look for a banner with the Rurik art on it (shown below).

The First Exposure Playtest Hall is in rooms 107 - 110.
