Last weekend we conducted our first full roll-out of Confluence at the CharCon Bonus Round in Flatwoods, WV. It was awesome to see all out hard work in action, and people having fun with it. The success of the card mechanics were especially gratifying. The vendors who participated noticed the additional traffic we were sending them and the players really enjoyed collecting unlocks for their characters.
From the player side, all of our tables were well attended and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. A highlight for me was running the Flatwoods Monster Investigation for Andrew, who is a member of the Braxton County CVB and an expert on the monster’s lore. He has contributed a number of photographs which will appear in the published version of the scenario.
Our Sunday special was an experimental PVP tournament, which saw our most eager players battle it out for a chance to run a custom made companion card. It was a series of tight battles and the players brought all the tricks to the table, including a few that I never envisioned. When all was said and done, William Bumgarner beat out four others to become our victor. He had us create a phoenix companion for his character. He alone will only have access to it, so if you want one of his four copies, make your offer good.
