The music in this week’s podcast is by Brother Love.  You can find him at brotherloverocks.com.  We must caution the listener not to go to brotherlove.com which currently re-directs you to Brother brand printing supplies but, in the past, it was a porn site and is definitely not safe for work.

 

WotC won’t be in the exhibit hall at Gen Con.

Magic: The Gathering has been selected to be featured in a new fantasy exhibit debuting at Seattle’s EMP Museum this weekend. The Fantasy: Worlds of Myth and Magic exhibit will display several key pieces from Magic’s archive of incredible world-building imagery alongside artifacts from other pop-culture and fantasy phenomenons including Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones and more. The exhibit kicks off with an opening celebration tomorrow, Friday, April 26.

During the exhibit fans will get a first-hand look at some of Magic’s unique elements and rich illustrations, including original alpha and beta cards and key art from Magic’s top fantasy artists and designers. In addition, visitors who attend the opening night celebration on April 26th will have the opportunity to meet some of Magic R&D’s most creative minds, including Senior Designer Mark Rosewater and Senior Director of Magic R&D Aaron Forsythe.

Please let me know if you need anything else and, in the meantime, I’ve included some additional information about the exhibit below.

Best,

-Mark

 

About the EMP’s Fantasy: Worlds of Myth and Magic Exhibit:

 

Organized by EMP Museum, Fantasy: Worlds of Myth and Magic is the first exhibition of its kind to examine the proliferation of the fantasy genre in literature, film, television, and video games.  From classic folklore to epic tales of good and evil, the exhibition content spans more than four centuries and includes an authentic 16th century suit of armor, rare costumes from the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz, and original hand-edited manuscript pages from J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.  Contemporary works are also featured with artifacts from Xena: Warrior Princess, Game of Thrones, and the Harry Potter series.

From Slide to Play:

“Well, it’s about time. Wizards of the Coast has announced that they’re bringing an official Magic: The Gathering game to iOS. While plenty of other card battling games have come to the platform (including Kard Combat, which was also made by the legendary Richard Garfield), we’ve been waiting impatiently for an official Magic: The Gathering game. The wait is almost over, as Wizards of the Coast is bringing Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 to the iPad this summer.”

From KICKSTARTER

THERE BE MONSTERS

“Map Monsters is a free-to-play location-based adventure game designed by the venerable Richard Garfield, creator of Magic: The Gathering, Schizoid, King of Tokyo, and many other fantastic video and analog games.”

The Article includes a back story on the game before going on to gameplay.

The game uses location via GPS devices. Unlike other games the GPS device will be a secondary mechanic. In other words travel isn’t necessary, but those that do will progress quicker.

The world is the map

Virtual world travel, players will be allowed to travel the world from their living room.

You never know what you will find when you explore a new location.

Items will have a scarcity, or a rarity. Some items will be abundant in areas forcing players to travel in order to trade.

Players will be able to build mileposts, mines, and farms.

Create friends to trade with and use their roads and more.

It will be available for Ipad and I phone 1st.

The will be funded if they can find enough contributors to reach 40k.
