This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Coyote & Crow themselves announced a few days ago that they would be unable to sell product at Gen Con this year:
https://coyoteandcrow.net/2022/08/01/gen-con-2022/

Congratulations, detective!

Also, lollin @ not being able to switch off metadata on your cel phone pics. Fuckin' Google, how does it work?
He definitely has a booth at GenCon, and definitely blew $20k plus on a fiasco. I think he only stayed at his booth for an hour before he bailed. Can’t say that I blame him for hiding his face.

As for investigating, I never claimed I found out a deep secret. It can’t be secret with the company’s name on the booth. I am pointing out this Woke jerk’s failure, and whatever sob story he puts on his website for an assumed friendly audience he still failed to deliver on his plans on being at GenCon with product to sell and promote his game. The excuses are just that, and don’t contradict his failure. It’s also telling that instead of even coming up with some posters or flyers to help promote the game all he could do was make up some buttons to virtue-signal, as if that would cover his failure as a game developer and producer.

Bro you forgot to strip the metadata from your post

There you have it folks, more proof that Tubesock Amy is only here to troll.

Pretending Bull made about 1 cool million from his KS, you mean to tell me he has no money to print some books to sell at the convention?

LOL.

It's been said that gamers can make very poor business people.  Woke ones are even worse.   Remember that comic book/Game store I think that was in Ca then was ultra woke and then went under?  I believe that was discussed here.

Probably.  I mean printing and shipping is expensive and probably after he shipped to all his backers he probably didnt have any money left because he probably underestimated how much the project would cost with art, layout, writing and everything else.

Not to mention he is woke, so he probably isn't very bright.

Oh, he had the money. Just not the business savvy.  ;D

According to the blog post, it was all someone elses fault. Because of course he can't take responsibility for what people do on his company's behalf (assuming it's even true, which I have doubts about). He CLAIMS that this person knows where some inventory is, but alludes to them withholding that info from him. Like, WTF? How the hell, as a business owner, do you NOT KNOW, where your product is held?! This guy is either lying or he's mind-numbingly incompetent. Let's just assume it is true though... why tf you gonna fire the guy before getting your product back? Or the records for all this "information" the guy was supposedly privvy to? As Tony Stark would say: Not a great plan!

The whole post reads like a hit piece on a former employee rather than what it should be, an apology letter to the fans. But as typical with these narcissists, it's all deflection and excuses. The only time he even mentioned being sorry it was for having "to bring you all this news with such short notice." He's not sorry there won't be product, he's only sorry he didn't break the news sooner. What a stand up guy!

That he would be unable and or unwilling to take responsability is a given, he's woke after all.

That he would be as mind numblingly STUPID as to not know where his inventory is, and THEN fire the guy who knows BEFORE getting his product back? Now that's a new level of stupid. Assuming it's all true.

How do you not even have a copy of your own game to at least show people and run a sample of though at your table?

Seriously, in the very least SOMETHING about your game to show to people. Not even a poster? A laptop with images up on it? ANYTHING?

I thought I’d start a topic on what people are seeing at GenCon, thinking I might not be the only member here.

Tell us about any cool stuff you see there. Or any games you play.

Wish I were there this year.

I wanted to be there too, but I'm on my (twice-delayed) 2020 European vacation, and I wanted that more.

This was precisely my thoughts on this.

According to the blog post, the former Event Coordinator knows where some inventory is (whatever that means), but how or why that never made it to the booth is a mystery. I can understand having issues with printed books arriving on time (if that was the case), but not having any t-shirts, stickers, or posters? He had time to order "I only game with baby murderers" pins, so I see no excuse he couldn't have pins that... oh, I dunno... PROMOTED HIS FUKKEN GAME!
