Gencon Bound

January 29, 2014 by


After two years of not attending “the best four days in gaming”, I’ve decided to once again attend Gencon 2014. The reasons were twofold, first because of the expected celebrations around the release of DnD 5th Ed. and DnD’s 40th anniversary, which I would like to be there for, and second because I miss hanging […]

No Surprises: D&D Next arriving in the Summer of 2014

December 20, 2013 by


So as most of us thought, the release date for Dungeons and Dragons 5th Ed. has been announced, and the game lands on the nebulous “Summer 2014” date… which is clearly a Gencon launch. Here’s the cryptic release… Why cryptic? Let’s talk after you read it… Wizards of the Coast Announces Thrilling Dungeons & Dragons […]

Gencon 2011 Wrap-Up

August 10, 2011 by


So Gencon 2011 has come and gone, and I have to say that I had a fantastic time!  I ran 3 games (Dragon Age, and rpgKids), played some Drunken D&D, 4e D&D (which I miss playing) and a late night game of Fiasco.  I also met up with some great friends both old and new.  […]

rpgKids at Gencon

July 27, 2011 by


My ADD sometimes gets the best of me, and this is one of those times… You’d think a guy with a role-playing game for sale would want to do anything possible to promote it at the largest gaming convention… Geez. Anyway, I’d like to see if there’s interest in me running rpgKids at Gencon.  If […]

My Gencon Schedule

July 25, 2011 by


I’ll be attending my third Gencon this year, and unlike previous years, I’ll be attending solo… If you want to hook up while I’m there, the easiest way to reach me will be through my twitter account, but I’ll be checking email throughout the weekend as well. I found out that as far as today […]

DMing Your First Game In Public

August 11, 2010 by


One of the things I was looking forward to doing at Gencon was DMing my first game in public.  You see, I’m not a great public speaker, in fact, I’m pretty terrible.  I don’t do well in public arenas, and I’m very self conscious about my DMing abilities.  Sure, I’ve DMed for some online friends […]

Running a 2nd Lvl. Delve at Gencon

August 2, 2010 by


I decided to run a 2nd lvl. Chaos Scar adventure at Gencon this year.  Right now it looks like it will be Saturday at 2pm.  I have one player confirmed, and am looking for 4 more. I would prefer 4th Ed. newbies, but it is not a requirement, but I’d strongly prefer it……… So, here’s […]

Gencon plans

July 24, 2010 by


While it is a bit egotistical in my part to assume that anyone would want to hang out with me at Gencon, I have gotten several messages about joining games with people, or just going to have a beer with some folks.  I figured I’ll just lay down my plans for Gencon here, and see […]

Gencon-bound thanks to the Ennies

July 22, 2010 by


So I bit the bullet and bought a plane ticket to go to Gencon.  I wasn’t going to attend this year, but then I got nominated for the Ennies and thought that maybe I should be there to clap for the winners… 🙂 So what does this mean for you?  Well, I have a press […]

2010 Ennies Voting Is Now Open

July 16, 2010 by


Just a quick post to let you know (as if you didn’t already, silly me) that Ennies voting is now open. It would be an honor if you casted a vote for my blog and podcast, which are both nominated in their respective categories. If you’ve ever felt helped by anything I’ve written here, offered […]
