Why do I still go to Gencon? I’m thinking the smaller cons (especially around here) are going to fit the bill better than the 60K attendance monstrosity. Having everyone ready for 11 AM today was a bitch, people got together as if it was some sort of business meeting. Fucksake, this is what you have to go through to get events? Madness. Despite the craziness, the online system is pretty amazing. While confusing at times, it parses a shocking amount of information in a fairly short amount of time. Coordination is the fucking thing. If we weren’t trying to get into games together, it would be a lot easier, but half the fun is playing with part strangers, part amigos.
I got all my Runequest requests, but nothing else. I ain’t complaining. The only game I really wanted other than that was Feng Shui 2 and, though there were no games, Shinobigami Modern Ninja Battle Game.
And I’m running a Lamentations of the Flame Princess game. First event I’ve ever run there after all these decades of going. I was thinking either that, Into the Odd or Feng Shui 2 and LotFP won out. I’m going to run an entrant (randomly from a set of 10 good ones) from the one page dungeon contest.
