I'm not particularly good at writing up reviews or composing whole accounts of events. But my GenCon 2007 experience included the following:
- Bringing my brother along for the ride this time, and meeting up with friends Josh Wentz, Emily Martin, Jeremy Simmons, Harley Stroh, Ed Gentry and Lara Gose.
- Meeting fellow Inquisitive Marcy Rockwell and hanging out with her pretty much the whole time. A big plus there. Incidentally, she's got a GenCon writeup going over at her weblog.
- Meeting Keith Baker, James Wyatt, CA Suleiman, Ari Marmell, Matt Forbeck, and other WotC-affiliated people.
- Spending some time at the Goodman Games booth and seeing some of the other guys again. A really nice crowd.
- Going to the ENnies, which was far more elegant and impressive than last year's. We (Goodman Games) didn't win anything, but it was still cool to be nominated.
- Attending a few Keith-run Eberron seminars. The guy's got serious energy and enthusiasm for Eberron, and I really appreciate that. It makes me feel prouder to have some small part in it.
All in all, a good deal of fun. Next year my wife's coming with me again, and I'll get to promote The Darkwood Mask.
Here are some photos I took. As a general rule, I don't put pictures up of people who I don't get permission from. It's just my thing. So I try to keep them general.
