I've finally done it. I've committed to attending GenCon. I've been wanting to do GenCon for years, but things kept coming up... But the pass is bought and hotel reservations made.

I'm going to GenCon!

Who all am I going to see there?

I'll be there, helping to run the annual Candlekeep Seminar, at which you will be a particularly honored guest.

I can barely afford to travel 250 miles to a convention this year, let alone 6,000 miles.

I'll be there as well in the Author's Avenue, trying to hustle comic books. I'll be attending Erik's Candlekeep Seminar.

Is this an event I have to sign up for in May? First time doing this, I just want to make sure I don't miss it.

Enjoy the fun and games at GEN-CON 2015. I won't be there this year, but I might find time to send through a gift.

Ooh, I like George's gifts...

I actually DO know everything. I just have a very poor index of my knowledge.

After attending 6 out of last 7 GEN CONs, this one will likely be my last for a stretch. It will be great to finally meet you Wooly.

You, as well! I still claim a part of the credit for your designer status -- I was one of the first, if not the first, to find your website and share the links on the WotC site. And once they gave me the boot, I continued sharing the link over here. So I'm claiming some credit, there.

We can talk about my share of the royalties when we meet.

I've looked in the site for a sort of program of the event but didn't found anything, some hint? (I'm dreaming of depart from Florence to reach Indianapolis but is a very expensive thing to do :) )

The GenCon veterans will correct me if I am wrong, I'm sure... But I'm fairly certain that the event scheduling isn't until like May.

I just checked; the site says that event registration is May 17th.

I have no idea what all I'll register for. I want plenty of time to just wander, though. And of course, any of the FR stuff or CKeep stuff is a must.

Same here. :) Any Realms related event is on my to see list. Other than that, I don't know. I'm open to suggestions.
I kinda feel like I did when my Family went to DC for a day. Seeing all the things is impossible.

I came up with something last night that should do just nicely.

Now all I have to do it write it and get it to Indianapolis by August!

Can i have a copy when you are done. I am too poor to ever get to Indianapolis.

I wonder what could be better than a generic Greyhawk adventure slopped into the realms and daubed with an imitation FR brush?

That was a dig at WoTC though George, i'm sure your "something" will be awesome, the timeline you did was Cloak and Dagger amazing.

George, let's coordinate you getting it to me so that I can have a friend do a nice bit of layout on it. I'll then make a limited print run for participants of the Seminar. I don't want you to incur another cost this year. I saw the receipt from 2014!

The cost isn't an issue, Matt. No dramas there. The logistics of getting it done and at Indy are the hard bit - although Fed-Ex were awesome last year. Thanks for the offer, I'll be in touch down the track.

My charming wife and I (and a few of our usual suspect gamers) will be there again this year. We look forward to seeing you all, hanging out with old friends, and making some new ones (especially you Wooly!).

To anyone going for the first time, I can't tell you how strongly we encourage you to attend the seminar. It is always the high point of our GenCon!

Matt - our group will be doing the cosplay thing again this year as well - what class/race is your character?

Kevrick debuted in the Airspur article I wrote. He is a human Vistani bard/fighter/rogue and a Harper.

This might be interesting. He absolutely despises Drow ;)
