Gen Con Thus far…

Posted by Daniel On August 7, 2010 ADD COMMENTS

Gen Con has been great so far.  I spent the majority of the day walking through the exhibition hall, and was I ever impressed.  I talked a bit with Jeff Alverez and Sean Reynolds, got a bunch of autographs on my new Advanced Players Guide, picked up a few new miniatures and I even sold a few copies of the Realms of Twilight Campaign Setting. That means I only have about 16 copies of the first printing left, so get them while you can.  Remember, only the first printing is numbered and signed by both the author and one of the artists who helped out a great deal with the project, Cynthia Zubko.

I also got to meet Margaret Weis and get her to sign a few new books.  Since I pretty much grew up on her Dragonlance novels, that really was something special.

I did get to demo a few games, including a fantasy tactics game with miniatures that was rather interesting.  It was pretty cool in concept, but it didn’t really have anything special or different to offer from the others.  Tomorrow I hope to do a few more demos, sell a few more books, and over all continue to have a good time.

For those of you who are here with me, I hope to see you out there on the exhibition floor or in one of the events.  If you see me, feel free to stop me and ask me about the world or publishing stuff in general.  I always carry a few copies of the Campaign Setting around for interested gamers to look at and purchase.  For those of you that didn’t have a chance to make it this year, there’s always next year.  I would highly recommend the event to anyone interested in almost any RPG or fantasy/sci-fi board game.  It truly is an experience that should not be missed.

Time for me to head to bed for the night.  Having a baby girl means fewer late night gaming sessions unfortunately.
