By the time you read this I should… hopefully be on my way to GenCon (assuming you’re reading this on day of publish, I may already be there, I may have left). After a disastrous and costly mixup with the flights, the only thing I have to be nervous about now is being on my own in a foreign country… and everything afterwards.
I’m booked in to a hotel almost an hour’s drive away from the convention, and I missed booking to see Critical Role live. This journey has been problematic to say the least, but…
It’s quite possibly the biggest gaming convention in the world, with only Essen and UKGE to present any real competition. I’ve got chances to meet some of the most famous faces in the business, the same business that technically I’m now in. I’ll also be watching the Gamers perform live on Saturday, the only event I’ve actually booked a place at, for the rest of the event I intent to wander the con floor and see who and what I can find.
I plan to bring games, anyone who wants a quick D&D one-shot, I will be carrying a few on me, and I know it’s not too hard to land a game at GenCon, but that’s not going to stop me preparing. I’ll also be packing a couple of Magic decks, seriously, seek me out.
And while I’m trying to meet new people, anyone else going who DMs/GMs for hire? I’d love to meet other people in the same field, talk about your experiences and share some of my own. If any other pros are out there and want to chat, give me a shout in the comments, or on the Shropshire Dungeon Master Facebook page.
Otherwise, this ends my work at GeekOut for the next week or so… hopefully see some of you in Indianapolis.
