Slices of Gen Con

What a week. So much happened. The best way to even start to cover it is in rapid-fire bullets.

  • Announced Pugmire.
  • A game I contributed to, Hillfolk, won this year’s Diana Jones Award.
  • Ken Hite formed “Eddy Webb & Associates” with me, and we interviewed Rich Thomas for the position of Junior Couch Surfer.
  • Swapped stories over drinks with fellow Onyx Path freelancers at Matt McFarland’s birthday party.
  • Met a potential client for freelance work, who turned out to be a fan.
  • Got a migraine on Saturday, but quick timing and a very brief nap solved that.
  • Ended up with a fair bit of swag, even though I didn’t buy anything.
  • Discovered a company that makes fantasy dog miniatures.
  • Picked on some people a lot. More than I should have, perhaps. I need to think about how I express affection.
  • Got a Sherlock Holmes card game as a late birthday present, and then played it the next night with David Brookshaw and his friends.
  • Lots of early morning conversations with Richard Thomas, covering everything from the business to Pugmire to yoga to very personal topics. And lots of old war stories.
  • Made a game out of cardboard at the show and tried to sell it to people.
  • Accidentally kicked said game into someone’s face.
  • Saw so many of my friends and had more time with them, but still not enough time.
  • Met a lot of people excited to work with me on future projects.
  • The shrimp cocktail at St. Elmo’s.
  • Got Scott Holden’s pants.
  • Waited for hours for our pallets.
  • Had so many people ask for autographs, ask for pictures, or just shake my hand.
  • Heard stories of how my work and my friends’ work has shaped and improved the lives of others.
  • Put faces to names and online personas.
  • Muted my hearing aids to deal with construction noise.
  • Walked dozens of miles throughout the week.
  • Met new people.
  • Made new friends.
  • Remembered why I love this industry.
