Ahoy hoy, Guildies! We’re amped up for our next con appearance down in Richmond, VA for RavenCon! This will be my first time attending after many years of intentions and broken promises, and I’ll be rolling in by Megabus no less. Prepare yourselves, Virginians: Guilded Age is going to huckster all the fuck up in your Holiday Inn. Come out and see us if you’re in the area, we’ll have all the GA merch available for your purchasing pleasure (or in our brand new store, if you’d prefer).

T and I will both be there, but apparently only I have panels. Schedule after the jump!
