We continue our journey through the pits and perils that is the Wars of Reaving. When last we left our intrepid hero, he’d just been told there would be no record sheets and saw the book gutted of 15-16 pages of material. Whatever would our writer do?
Continuing the seemingly never-ending saga of the Wars of Reaving. Which, if you ask my wife, is exactly what it seemed like to her during the next ten weeks after that phone call. (Catch up with all the linkage here.)
My beautiful wife and I decided last night that a trip to GenCon this year in Indianapolis, Indiana is in order. Considering I’ve got a decently big project hitting at that time, it made sense to both of us to be there. Especially after all the sweat, sleepless nights, and rewrites this thing has caused.
We’re not rookie convention-goers by any means and I prefer having an enjoyable experience; I would assume so does everyone else. After all, it’s an experience you won’t forget. And to make it even more memorable – in the good way – I’ve decided to divulge some “trade secrets” that will help you and your friends get the most out of it.
Check out my conventioneering tips after the jump. They’re pretty universal, so even if you’re attending Origins Game Fair, Spiel, or E3, they have just as much merit as GenCon. If you have more, please share in comments! Continue reading →
As you may or may not be aware, GenCon 2010 was this past weekend. (No, I didn’t attend.) Normally I wouldn’t really talk about it here, since I didn’t go, there’s not really any news from me that didn’t get gleaned from the panels there, and I’m pretty sure no one cares from my end. But that’s okay and pretty immaterial to the following story anyway.
I’d initially thought about not saying anything at all about it, since it really doesn’t need addressed, but a conversation with Brian (JadeHellbringer) last night sort of forces my hand. See, he filled me in on a situation I was involved in at GenCon – despite me being here, nearly a thousand miles away – and I was bemused and a little disturbed at the perspective from the convention-goer’s end. So here’s the story of what really happened, simply to put the rumors to rest. This is something I really don’t want getting out of hand or being told ad nauseum with incorrect facts, after all.
