Press ReleasesFebruary 8, 2007 -- Peter Schweighofer, game industry veteran and creator of the sourcebook Pulp Egypt, will attend Stellarcon 31 ( http://www.stellarcon.org/home ) March 9-11 in High Point, NC.
He’s one of several gaming guests including Steve Long of HERO Games and Greg Stafford, creator of the fantasy world Glorantha and founder of Chaosium, Inc. Schweighofer will also participate in several panels about gaming and the sci-fi/fantasy genres.

He also plans to run several roleplaying game sessions, including one highlighting his Pulp Egypt sourcebook, a classic D6 Star Wars roleplaying game adventure, and one set in the universe of the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica series currently running on the Sci-Fi Channel. “I ran the Battlestar Galactica-inspired game at MACE in November with an enthusiastic crowd, so I wanted to offer it again to other fans who might like to try it,” Schweighofer said. “My wife and I have really become captivated by the new Battlestar Galactica series. I’m always inspired to play around in a new setting that excites me, and convention games are ideal for running one-shot games to try out new ideas.”

Attendees can join him for a game or stop by and chat at his dealers room table. Gamers can check out his display copy of Pulp Egypt and purchase CD copies of the PDF supplement. He’ll share a table with Soft Chance Creations, run by his wife, Lynanne, which sells hand-made, game-related fabric items such as dice bags, “geek shorts,” and fez.

Schweighofer founded Griffon Publishing Studio as a means to market his own sourcebooks and games to the adventure gaming hobby. Known for writing and editing numerous Star Wars roleplaying game products for West End Games, he has designed such period sourcebooks as Weird War II: Afrika Korpse for Pinnacle Entertainment Group’s Weird Wars series and the Raiders of the Lost Ark Sourcebook for West End Games’ Indiana Jones roleplaying game. Schweighofer lives in Brandy Station, VA, with his wife Lynanne and their two cats Wolfgang and Peggy Lee.
