Who’s going to GenCon 2013? I see one Hellfrost session planned so far. Any more planned?May 13, 2013 at 12:46 am #1662May 13, 2013 at 3:08 am #1664
Well that’s disappointing to hear. Maybe in 2014 then.August 1, 2013 at 4:33 pm #2466
Maybe I’ll see about running one next year. I’ll run one here in Denver at GenghisCon first in Feb and see how well it works out first.

Well have returned from GenCon. It was my first GenCon, and was honestly a bit overwhelming at first. I did managed to catch a Hellfrost session. Thanks to Jon Woodland for running it. We had a good time kicking some goblin and orcish butt! I was disappointed not to see TAG there, but did meet a number Savage Worlds fans, and the Pinnacle booth looked to be getting a lot of traffic. If I return next year I may consider running a session myself.August 29, 2013 at 11:12 am #2682
Glad you had a good con! The size of GenCon can be something of a shock first time out. I remember walking into the trade hall for the first time, which was partly empty as booths were being erected, and being amazed at its immensity.September 1, 2013 at 6:36 pm #2711
I ran two session of “The Black Ice of Karad Marn” at Gencon. I’m not sure if anyone else ran Hellfrost, but at least that was two sessions. I had 5 players for the Wednesday night game and 3 for the Friday night game. Everyone had a good time.
I was happy to see parents with their kids at my tables, and the kids really took to the Hellfrost setting well. No player deaths in either of my Hellfrost games (but plenty in my Darwin’s World sessions).
So sad that you couldn’t be there Wiggy, since it’s unlikely I’ll get to another GenCon for at least a few years. I did get to meet most of the Pinnacle crew though, so all was not lost.

“The Black Ice of Karad Marn” turns up in a lots of cons in a Google search, but I can’t find anywhere to buy it. (And your sessions at GenCon 2013 were full before I could get in.)
Is it a free adventure? Can I have a copy?
It looks like my group is going to Karad Marn in a couple of sessions and I’d like to see what other people (or TAG) have done with it. It’s the last ‘civilized’ stop before they go and get killed climbing the Icewall, so I’d like to make it memorable…September 28, 2013 at 3:34 pm #2778
I’m guessing it’s one of Red-24’s home-brewed con adventures.September 28, 2013 at 3:42 pm #2779
Contact Red and ask him if he will share it with the community! 😉
The pitch he posted on the Pinnacle forum in February sounded promising:
Hellfrost – The Black Ice of Karad Marn – Wed 6-10PM and Fri 6-10PM
Number of players: 2 – 5
Description: The great Dwarven city of Karad Marn has been primarily in orcish hands for over six decades; ever since the Frost Dwarves, in their eagerness to expand, broke into a major orc stronghold. Now, the rediscovery of an ancient burial vault may hold a key to turning the tide of the battle.
Play as a group of Frost Dwarves, as they fight their way deep into the Black Ice of Karad Marn. “
