The gang sits down to listen to Ben talking about the role-playing game he's writing tentatively entitled Wands Against the Apocalypse. It is a game of modern magic where only YOU and your friends can kill the most dangerous mage in the world, Irena Katastrofa. Unfortunately, Katastrofa also knows that only you can destroy her, and she will do everything she can to kill you before you kill her. 

Tomorrow is Gen Con event registration! Click here to preregister for Plot Points live! Ben is also doing seminars entitled "Why Did TSR Fail?", and "Good to Be a Geek: How being a geek makes you happier, healthier, smarter, and wealthier". Ben is also running a seminar on his theory of RPGs, "Encounters 101."
