Great news Elaine. Hope this doesn't mean that 2018 is now no longer a possibility ...

My wife (Graidh) and I will be there again this year...and as in past years, I am planning on photo-documenting the Candlekeep seminar for everyone who was able (and unable) to attend to enjoy later.

Just as in past years, I will be creating a google photos album with free download access for everyone. I'll post a link to the forum, after Gencon (and I've had time to recover and 'develop' the photos!).

Our badges and event tickets arrived in the mail a couple of days ago, so now we are officially excited!

A quick note about Gen Con book signings: I won't have any books available for sale at the con, but I'm happy to sign old stuff. I will also have bookplates for people who (quite understandably) don't want to schlepp books around.

Hope to see many of you there!

Well, I have my copy of Elfshadow I've been lugging with my case a few times now for you to sign. When on Saturday would be the best time to approach you to sign it?

I'll be at the Candlekeep Seminar from 8 to 10(ish) on Saturday evening, and there's a scheduled group signing on Friday at noon, but really, pretty much any time is fine. There are a few panels scheduled back to back, so occasionally I might be running from one place to another, but even that shouldn't be a problem.

Well, I've just finished my handout for the Candlekeep Seminar and sent it through to Brian Cortijo and Erik Scott de Bie. I'll see what I can do to have it uploaded here at the 'Keep after the Seminar occurs. Here's hoping that those guys can get it printed to hand out to everyone that attends. To all those who get to the seminar - enjoy! - and as always, feedback is welcome on the handout.

Well, my dad and I FINALLY landed in Indianapolis Airport around 11. We got to our hotel around midnight. Just got up not too long ago. Will be picking up our passes later today. All I know is it still may be a long day for my dad. Will see you guys at the seminar tonight. I just pray any of us flying back out don't get caught in any more storms and get stuck in the airport again.

That was a great seminar last night. Unfortunately, I may not be coming next year. It depends on the prospects for my family next year. It was great to have met James Lowder and Elaine and met my other author buddies again. Until we meet again, friends, findar. ;)

I don't suppose anyone that attended was able to record the seminar (assuming that was allowed in the first place)?

It essentially gave a name, story & statistics to the guy that was on the cover of the classic Gray Box.

Daoud yn Ahorz actually. He's a priest of Hoar/Assuran. Ahorz is the name of that deity in the lands of the South. The shield he bears is one of Halaster's demonshields - Cherumtaar.

Thanks George. I'm curious on this piece of Emastas. Is there any lore to it that I'm missing, or did you make it up just to make Hoar have some extra aliases. BTW, love the javelin of lightning commonality.

Worshipped as Assuran in the lands of Unther and Chessenta and Emastas in the environs of the Unapproachable East, he is is known as Ahorz in the lands of the Imperial South where his symbol is a white, five-pointed star.

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail

As is my wont, I just made ... stuff ... up. No canonical reference but I've always been a fan of divine aliases and keeping the gods multi-faceted and mysterious.

Getting that way myself. Starting to use more and more of the "people wonder if X is Y" in things I write up. I have my personal views, but those don't have to be definites.
