So I’m not going to lie, I may have gone a little overboard collecting Privateer Press pins at GenCon. I’ve wanted to get some for, well, since we heard that they were coming out, and I’ve avidly followed the assorted Privateer Press Insider blogs that relate to them, but in the end I just wasn’t prepared for the niftiness. I walked into that booth, past guardian of the gate Nick Kay, and promptly boggled at the pin carousel and proceeded to load up my basket.
And then there was the trading! If you spotted a pin you wanted on a Privateer staffer’s lanyard, you could offer to trade any pin that they didn’t currently have, for the one you were after. This was key because there’s a number of alternate scheme pins that you can *only* get by trading with staffers. At GenCon this was the alternate Chibi Ashlynn, which we’ll get to in a minute.
Three full lanyards and a decent portion of satchel later, and Will Hungerford tweeted me at my… best? Worst? Either way, there was a lot of heavy metal hanging around my neck at the end of Friday night, so I thought I’d showcase what I ended up with once all of the trading was done.
