Exhausted Gen Con Post

I’m back.

Highlights and thoughts before I pass out.

I won the Indie RPG Awards: Supplement of the Year. Yay!

We interviewed Monte Cook again, a 4 year running tradition, back from when we were crouched against a wall with an iPod mic between us and the interview was over. Monte turned to me and said, “So, tell me about the Dictionary of Mu.” Aaaaw yeah.

We played P.T.A. Star Wars, Episode LV: Revenge of the Jedi was a fantastic session of gaming, the first game I played at the con.

We played Kingdom of Nothing and gave Jeff Himmelman helpful feedback.

We played Dogs in a town about Sex and Violence.

Long car rides with good friends are nice but next year they will be even better.

I lost every ENnie I had a shot at but the ceremony was fantastic fun and we got great interviews after the show was over from the attendees.

Jeff and I got some fantastic interviews.

When Storn is tired he puns even more.

Rob is a mensch.

I miss Malcom.

I didn’t get to sit down and talk to enough people.

A Shock: game must be played with my father and a few of his friends.

I’m in the 40 Years of Gen Con book 3 times that I could find and in one of the interview bits, I mention the Sons of Kryos. That’s right, Sons of Kryos are now a part of Gen Con history. Suck on that, Tevis!

Paul Tevis is no man to be fucked with when he has a mic in his hand.

Julia, Joshua, Jonathan and Emily are curled up on various horizontal surfaces in my house, crashing out and I don’t have to be into work until 2 p.m. tomorrow.

The Playcollective Booth was fun.

There are too many Nazi-related t-shirts in Gen Con; its disturbing, man.

Next year I want to look into getting a place with a kitchen.

And now, the passing out but first:

  1. I know that gurning fizzog! My two favourite travelling Scotsmen both featured in the vid, lovely 🙂

    I really feel like I missed a good GenCon this year, based only on the littlest rumblings and nudges and so forth. Next year, perhaps…

  3. It turns out Bill almost crushed Gary Gygax as well. While bringing a huge box of books into the hall, he bumped into someone and nearly dropped the box on them. Who was it? Gygax.

    • This reminds me of a story my father told about carrying a nose of a racecar bumper and knocking over A.J. Foyt.

      I will write about attempting to get an interview with Gygax soonish rather than laterish.

  5. My friend, you ran an incredible game of PTA: Star Wars, Episode LV for us. Aside from meeting incredible people and wanting to see them again, I want it to be Gen Con 08 so we can continue this game. It was a pleasure meeting you face to face.
