Concrete Cow Thanks and Conpulsion Details

Thanks to everybody who made Concrete Cow such a great Convention. I played an excellent game of Primetime Adventures (if you like good TV and like RPGs, this game is a must). I also got to run Covenent. The game has generated some interesting discussion of the rules over at the Collective Endeavour forum and I'd recommend that thread for an understanding of how the rules all interlink.

On the 24th and 25th of March, I'll be in Edinburgh for Conpulsion - Scotland's largest multi-format gaming convention. I'll be there with other CE folks, and we plan to have an informal game design roundtable on the Saturday where people bring their current ideas and we help out. It's right in the middle of Game Chef, so should be really useful for those of us who're entering! We've also got an Indie Games Track, lots of short 1 or 2 hour taster demos of cool games.

Concrete Cow

I'll be at Concrete Cow in Milton Keynes on March 10th, hopefully running a short convention game of Covenant, and some 15 minute demos too. Other members of The Collective Endeavour will also be there, so come along, say hi, and play some great games.


If you're at Conception this week, be sure to hunt down Andrew Kenrick of Steampower Publishing. He's got a stall for the Collective Endeavour and will be running a number of games including Covenant and Cold City. He's also running a playtest camp, for those who want to try out a few games in progress.

He's got a limited supply of copies of Covenant on hand too.


I've added a few clarifications to the errata page for Covenant, largely regarding arenas and relationship edges. This is thanks to some feedback received at Spiel from Eero Tuovinen, and some experience of explaining the game in demos.

New Play Aid

As a seasonal gift, over in the downloads area I've added the new Truism Sheet. Designed for use during preparation, it should help you quickly arrive at a few interesting issues for your character to examine in play.
