Re: What is "Hindrance"?

Hindrance has a more modest meaning than you think it does. A gear or upgrade with Hindrance also gains Integral and Trifling. Some cards reference Hindrance, such as EnviroSafe Vacc Suit.

Re: Origins Game Fair & Gen Con

Thank you everyone who attended the Origins intros and/or helped us out with thoughts, handouts, additional giveaways. Even though Jeff reminded me, I still forgot to take pictures. I'll work on a writeup of Origins, but, if anyone has any thoughts on how to run similar events better in the future, ...
