Otherworldly Excursion

John "Pagan Publishing" Tynes is hosting an otherworldly excursion to Port Townsend's Fort Warden and Manresa Castle this December. The six participants are essentially paying for hotel lodging, some fine dining, a guided tour of the underbelly of an abandoned military base, and a world-class modern horror RPG session run by Mr. Tynes. It should be a chillingly great time.

I really hope it succeeds. Because I'd love to run one of these excursions myself, perhaps set in a small village in the Cascades passes, or an urban fantasy in Seattle's International District. For that matter the ghost town of Silverton, on Mt. Baker, would be perfect for snowy adventures or a Western.

Apparently, these tours/grandmaster RPG sessions were announced at GenCon SoCal. Kenneth Hite did a tour of occult and mystical Chicago (review).

If these aren't the perfect gaming vacations, I don't know what is.

Wow. I gotta start working on my wife to go to that.

I was thinking the same thing of my boyfriend. LoL

Yeah, it's not exactly cheap, but since meals and things are included… seems like maybe you could talk someone into giving it a try.

A Wolf Excursion
I would definitely plunk down coin for that. :)

All the Delta Green books are great . . . I'm sure that trip will be really good if one of the authors is the guide and GM.

As it turns out, they have a survey that you can fill out to request guides and game masters.

I've volunteered myself for two such excursions, but we'll see how they respond. If anyone wants to fill out a survey and drop my name, I'd be happy for the plug.

Yeah, Mr. Tynes is probably not quite for everyone. But I can see that a wide range of these could work.

I'd sign up for a Victorian gaslight tour of, well, any town with an interesting history in the period. Perhaps the Emperor Norton tour of SF, led by a certain perkygoth?

I would pay for that! (Not sure if the wife is going to go along, but hey.)
