ARTICLES

An Editorial with Questions

By David Millians

            While this newsletter is always looking for articles to place in this lead section of the publication, I am always receiving, unasked but encouraged, new material. For examples this issue, see below. Hawke Robinson and John Boardman are particularly prolific this month, but both our former chairman and new chairman regularly have material to share.

            My question here is, What counts as new material for CAR-PGa? What is valid and valuable to our membership and readership? In any given month, new materials may range from gaming tips to social issues within and around the hobby to topics in popular media, like Game of Thrones and Pokémon Go. Anyone can send materials directly to Paul for him to archive, but as the editor of this newsletter, I believe I can act as a filter for what is included and what is not. I think I have a liberal, even expansive, sense of what could be useful and usable, and so far, I’ve included everything I’ve been sent, but I wonder what the recipients think of this.

Are there new materials you think are outside our meaningful purview?

Are there important aspects of our work that never seem to have new materials?

I am interested to hear what you think, and such comments could form an interesting future discussion in this newsletter. They would also inform your editor’s work.

            I encourage everyone to send anything to me that you think may be applicable to what some or all of us do in our advocacy work, and, as always, it’s good work for the cause to send your thoughts in an article or essay format.

            Thanks!

            David

CALENDAR

New listings this month were provided by Paul Cardwell, others are urged to submit information. If you attend a convention, be sure and check the conventions table and let us have a copy of the fliers (or at very least the when, what, where, and contact information) for upcoming conventions available there. CAR-PGa is international, so this includes anywhere in the world.

Dates, precise venue, contacts' URLs or phone numbers, and other information, where missing from this list, would be particularly appreciated.

"[LARP]" means only LARP events as many RPG cons include at least some LARP, as likewise applies to the mention of specific game systems. The same bracketed information applies as well to game systems when the con will have only those games present.

In an attempt to get more face-to-face meetings of the membership, we list who will be going to what convention, if they will tell us. Get this type of information in at least two months before the convention itself, so we can run it at least once. Support your local cons by helping in the staff. It is a good way to promote RPG and you generally get in free for the brief time spent helping.

A review of any attended convention afterwards for the Newsletter would be appreciated too. These reviews should include demographic data such as attendance, percentage male/female, white/ethnic minorities (or what- ever is the majority/white/others), games in addition to tabletop RPG, and more subjective matters such as unusual events, quality of games and dealers' room, encouragement of new gamers, and whatever seems worth reporting. We need to work to restore CAR-PGa's reputation as the media's go-to on gamer demographics, especially since the media are still citing a study that cut off all those over 35 - at a time when that was the median age of gamers - it is closer to 40 now - which indicates we also need to work on recruiting younger players, although some increase in college age players at conventions has been noted.

Conventions are currently being compiled by archivist Paul Cardwell, 1127 Cedar, Bonham, TX 75418 or plcardwell@gmail.com, so send them there.
