Gen Con 2015 Schedule

Gen Con Indy 2015,  July 30 - August 2

The Gen Con website is now allowing people to sign up for events, so I thought it would be a good idea to post the events I'm running.

This year I'm doing two seminars as part of the Writer’s Symposium as well as my regular events for Blackspoon Press and Medieval Cookery.

SEM1580059 – Author Ed: Medieval Food and Cooking  Learn all about the reality of medieval food and cooking from medieval cooking expert Daniel Myers. Debunk myths about what people ate and discover culinary tidbits you can use in your stories! 07/30/2015 (Thursday), 4:00 PM, ICC : 241
SEM1569116 – Creating Medieval and Fantasy Cuisines  A subterranean culture probably wouldn't eat roast beef and an arboreal one wouldn't eat sushi. A fantasy world should have a cuisine that takes into account the resources and technology of the people that inhabit it. This seminar detail how to make up a consistent, believable cuisine using the workings of medieval European cooking as a template. 07/30/2015 (Thursday), 8:00 PM, Crowne Plaza : Pennsylvania Stn B 
SEM1575249 – Not Your Grandfather's Religion  A fictional religion can add depth to a story or game setting. This seminar presents a framework for creating a consistent and believable religious system. 07/31/2015 (Friday), 8:00 PM, Crowne Plaza : Pennsylvania Stn A
SEM1577142 – Worldbuilding: Crafting Languages  A good fictional language adds depth to your story; a bad one can ruin it. Learn from authors with experience at imaginary languages how to avoid pitfalls & use language to enhance your story. 08/01/2015 (Saturday), 4:00 PM, ICC : 244

The seminar on creating religions is a new one for me, but I think it'll be fun. Hope to see you there!
