In the eleventh hour, and just 10 days before the sign-up for Fastaval 2011
closes, we are happy and proud to announce two special guests at this year’s Fastaval.Luke Crane
is an award-winning and sometimes controversial game designer from New York and the man behind such games as Burning Wheel, Burning Empires and last but not least Mouse Guard. His latest creation is the roleplaying game FreeMarket, written and published together with Jared Sorensen. Luke can be found at www.burningwheel.org and on twitter (Link http://twitter.com/burning_luke
has worked on a wide array of game platforms, from his own roleplaying game Lacuna to computergames like Dungeon & Dragons Online and Neverwinter Nights. He claims he can entertain all of Fastaval at once with his MTV-approved dungeon-game Action Castle (link http://geek-news.mtv.com/2011/03/17/the-top-10-hottest-tabletop-games-of-pax-east/

This is Luke’s & Jared’s first visit to Scandinavia, and there will be plenty of opportunity to meet, game and talk with the two gentlemen at Fastaval. Amongst other things they will host demos of their games on Thursday, participate in both The Grand Bazar and Indie Sunday and can be found at the International Time in the café. On Saturday it will also be possible to participate in their seminar Game Design is Mind Control.
Luke Crane’s and Jared Sorensen’s visit to Fastaval has been made possible with economical support from The Culture and Leisure Department of Silkeborg Municipality.
