Con on the Cob 2007: Day 3 – Interviews

Con on the CobThough I was presented with numerous opportunities to get my game on again today, I abstained. Today was all about earning my press badge, so I wandered around the convention with a digital recorder and badgered people until they agreed to talk to me. Alas, due to a compatibility issue between operating system and digital recorder, I am unable to retrieve the interviews, or I’d spend a little pre-party time editing and uploading them. For now, I will provide a teaser list:

  • Brannon Hollingsworth of The Wandering Men. Brannon is one of five authors who collaborated on the upcoming, novel Skein of Shadows, and tie-in RPG setting, Crown: City of the Fallen.
  • Matt Duhan of Gozer Games. Matt designed Collateral Damage: The Anime Board Game.
  • Larry Elmore, legendary fantasy illustrator. Larry’s paintings have appeared on numerous roleplaying game source books and novels, and he helped define the look of Dragonlance. Recently, Larry did the cover for the final issue of Dragon magazine.
  • Sean Patrick Fannon of Talisman Studios. Shaintar is Sean’s forthcoming fantasy setting for the Savage Worlds system.
  • Steve Kenson of Green Ronin. Steve was the lead designer for Mutants & Masterminds: 2nd Edition and is currently working on the Wild Cards setting book, due to be released in August of 2008.
  • Evil Mike of Pinnacle Entertainment Group sat down for a few minutes to talk about The Savage World of Solomon Kane, the new licensed Savage Worlds game based on the works of Robert E. Howard.

Maybe, just maybe, I’ll score another interview or two before I leave tonight.

Once the interviews have been retrieved from the digital recorder and edited (to add intro and outro material as appropriate), they’ll be up on the Con*Live blog/feed and where ever else I can put them.

  1. If scuttlebutt heard on this very blog is to be believed, you might be running a Linux operating system nowadays… What compatibility problems are you having with your recorder? (Sony recorder? Proprietary formats of doom?)

    I might be able to help – feel free to drop a line if you like. Happy to try and help free your digital message into the ether!

    Congrats again on the “Con on the Cob” shenannigans – sounds like you had a pretty fun time at the festivities. Thanks to this very blog, I’m planning on re-reading the Solomon Kane collection I’ve got after my self/NaNoWriMo-imposed bout of fiction celibacy.

    Thanks for the updates! I’ve enjoyed them quite a bit.

    Keep the bail low —

  2. The recorder is indeed a Sony product, and it belongs to Mr. Miller. A quick peek at the Internets and the Googles yesterday yielded one or two other people attempting to get similar Sony IC recorders to work with Linux, but it seemed that no one had a solution.

  3. With luck, Chris will have the appropriate mojo to get the goods off the device using his Apple-thang.

    I own a Sony recorder that I’d like to get working under Linux as well. If I get it sorted out, there’ll be a blog entry for it, rest assured…

    Oh, Chris can certainly get the files off, but it would have been cool to be able to take an hour or so to edit and upload them last night instead of having to wait.
