Risus Monkey at Gen Con


I don't have my badge yet, but I will be attending GenCon this year. I'm really excited because it's been several years since I last made the trip and previous trips were uniformly awesome. This will also be the first time out since I became active in the DIY RPG blog community and I'm eager to meet readers and other blogging confederates. 

I'll be easy to find in the exhibit hall as I'll be pushing DungeonMorph Dice with Joe Wetzel at the Inkwell Ideas booth. As a direct result of this, I won't be doing quite as much gaming as I would otherwise be doing. Gaming for me will be pretty much limited to off-schedule evening sessions. While I want to play in at least one game run by an EN World/Game Day/OSR Blog luminary, I promise that I will be running games as well. Matt Jackson has already requested the next installment of Moon Soldiers Must Die! (well received on the Game Day circuit) and I'm really tempted to mash up Old School Hack and Trey Causey's Weird Adventures

Things will firm up in the coming months. If you are interested in meeting up for games or just socially, drop a comment on the blog sometime.

I'm going too, and looking forward to meeting in the real world--possibly and doing some gaming. Keep me posted on your plans.

I'll also be there looking for you guys. I see both of you on my sign-up spreadsheet. I'll do increasing meet-up updates as we approach gencon.

Excellent! Looking forward to meeting you in person and sharing a beer over a game. I will hack dice for your during potty breaks. ;)

@Trey: Keen! Will you be peddling Weird Adventures in the exhibit hall?

@Sniderman: Nifty!

@Digital Orc: Awesome! An OSR happy hour or group dinner might be a good place to start. Or an organized way to organize off-schedule games...

I'll bring some copies with me, but I don't have a booth or anything.

I've been giving serious consideration to going to GenCon this year...it's been about 6-7 years since I last went.

If I went, I'd need to buddy up with someone(s) to cover the cost of the hotel. Anyone have space?

@Brent: I'd say yeah, but I'm going to be stacked up with the DungeonMorph dice folks.
