Hey all,

If you are a Candlekeep scribe doing Deneir's work at GenCon, use this scroll to announce what you hear, what you see, and what you think!

Hope to chat with lots of folks in attendance.

6pm Texas time!

Beshaba's luck the site will probably crash!



"These things also I have observed: that knowledge of our world is
to be nurtured like a precious flower, for it is the most precious
thing we have. Wherefore guard the word written and heed
words unwritten and set them down ere they fade . . . Learn
then, well, the arts of reading, writing, and listening true, and they
will lead you to the greatest art of all: understanding."
Alaundo of Candlekeep

There might be a high amount of interest. I'm hoping WotC has planned for that and their server won't crash.

Cheers

LOL - you mean like when their countdown clock crashed their site when it hit zero, when they announced 4e?

That was just funny as hell. Sorry, but it was...

Looking back, that was one of those 'whisper of things to come' moments.

I am sure hundreds of sites (blogs, twitters, etc) will be 'reporting' on Gencon's events, which is good, because CK couldn't handle that kind of traffic. I doubt even WotC's new servers could. Better to spread it around (for instance, I could see Enworld crashing). The only thing more frightening then 'nerd rage' is nerd enthusiasm.
