Cancellations strike the big conventions, but there's more happening online, and such an event might introduce a new campaign setting for Dungeons & Dragons.
A|State was first published in 2004 by Contested Ground Studios. I think "cult hit" is a fair way to describe the game. The setting is an ostensibly eternal city with vast inequality between the rich and the poor.
Weekly RPG news for busy people. A bullet tour through the most popular character sheets and RPGs of the year, silver dice and toy eating Christmas trees.
A|State is a gothic horror of a sci-fi. The game is set in The City, and you cannot leave. It's a game that came with "For Mature Readers" warning on it.
The atmosphere, style and flavour of the game are self-fulfilling. I feel that as the GM I can sit back and concentrate on my plot.
