Well, the cat is out of the bag. It was killing me, too. To keep a secret that big requires a constant amount of energy. Several times my mouth opened, and it almost came out. Now I can finally relax. For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, Privateer Press will be holding its very own, first annual, game festival, and everyone who wants to make a momentous pilgrimage to the northwest can come.

It’s perfect timing, too. What a way to celebrate the successful release of MK II and the Tenth Anniversary of when it all began! This is no simple convention or expo. It will be so much more. Never before have fans and players been able to interact with Privateer Press staff in such an extreme way. Love our studio models? Take a class from the painter himself. Did the new Bethayne and Belphagor sculpt blow you away? Find out about all the blood, sweat, and tears that went into their creation from the sculptor.

Never before have players had the chance to experience some of the surprises we have in store. This isn’t just a series of tournaments or casual games–don’t worry, we’ll have them, too–this is a chance to play, paint, model, and learn about our games on a level you have never been able to experience before. The phrase, “Wow, I never thought I would be able to do that” will be heard hundreds of times during those two fateful days in June of 2011.

In the end, it is a pretty simple formula. We provide a place to stay, a place to gather, and all the events one person can possibly handle in two days. So check out and make sure the first annual Lock & Load Gamefest is one to remember!
