Have just seen on the Gen Con website that the Candlekeep Seminar has a cool theme this year: tyrants and renegades. That means I'll have to change my tack re what I was going to write up for it, but I think I have just the thing lurking in the back of my brain.

Looking forward to it immensely. Now all I have to do is ping Ed and see if he has time to tell us something about tyrants and renegades in the Realms ...

Ooh, that's a good one, plenty of tyrants in the realms to choose from.

I'd love to be in attendance this year, but my buddy Gene opted out of GenCon this year and I can't cover it all on my own...

I will be. Hope to see you George. BTW, I am betting my answer is no, but to your knowledge, is Ed coming this year? I met him LONG LONG ago for just a few minutes, but it would be great to see him again. He was SO nice. But, I've heard he has family issues, so I'm not holding out hope. One can only hope I could maybe see Eric L. Boyd, Steven Schend, Elaine, or R.L. Beyers there.... even though I know they're not associated to the brand anymore.

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail

TSR/WotC alumni do attend, on occasion. Elaine was there last year. Jeff Grubb put in a brief appearance the year before that, and Jim Lowder has done a couple of the ones I've attended.

I've also met Larry Elmore, Tracy Hickman, and Margaret Weis at GenCon, though not for anything to do with the Realms. Ditto Sean K Reynolds; I encountered him at the MCG booth one year and promptly geeked out (he'd actually gone to grab a book I preordered; when I saw his name on his badge when he came back, I went into full geek mode).

I also told Tracy Hickman one year that I had to have words with him; I'd bought a book from him the previous year, and he signed it with "you gain a level." And then my DM wouldn't honor this, so I went back to "complain" to him about that.

Due to Ed's personal circumstances, he can't make it to GenCon this year. I am planning however to visit him after the Con and will be e-mailing him soonish re that and to see whether he can provide anything for the seminar. No promises re the latter, but I'm working on something for the attendees which will be nowhere near as good!

Elaine won't be at Gen Con this year and it looks like Eric has another engagement also. Steven is 50/50 at this stage. John Hunter (aka Florin Falconhand) will be at Gen Con but is leaving on the Saturday for a family commitment and so won't make the Seminar on the Saturday night. Erik Scott de Bie will be present (and running the seminar with Brian Cortijo) and I'm hoping we'll get some other famous types to pop in for a visit.

I'm hoping to catch up with the Candlekeep crew for a pre-seminar get-together (which Steel Gandalf - Max Carr usually organises on the Thursday night) where we can talk Realms, hoist a few tankards and just hang out. More on that soon.

Looking forward to catching up with everyone.

Have fun... the name immediately makes me think of the Zhentarim, harking back to the Dragon Article.
