Gen Con Schedule

Sarah Darkmagic - Posted on 30 July 2010

All the cool kids are doing it so I figured I would post mine as well. Fred and I will be arriving in Indy early, probably Monday or Tuesday. He's a big open-wheel racing fan so we have lots to see and do outside of the con.

7 pm - RPGA Judges Meeting
After that, hang out and meet some peeps.

8 am - 1 pm: RPGA Judge Learn to Play
2 pm - 4 pm: Monster Building Workshop
4 pm - 6 pm - Design & Development: Presented by D&D Insider
8 pm? - ?: DMing a D&D Hooters GenCon Interactive Adventure

8 am - 1 pm: RPGA Judge Learn to Play
1 pm - 6 pm: Hanging out in the hall and maybe a seminar or two
6 pm - 10 pm: The ENnies

9 am - 10 am: What's Coming from Open Design
10 am - 12 pm: Dungeons & Dragons Preview and Q&A Show
2 pm - 7 pm: Chris Sims' Welcome to Dark Sun, B!#@&s! game
8 pm - 10 pm: Media Meet & Greet

Leaving early to drive back, but should have some time free in the morning.

I'm really looking forward to this grand adventure and I'm glad to be sharing it with Fred. This is our first Gen Con and second convention ever (PAX East was our first). Yeah, we're a bit spoiled.

In particular, I can't wait to run Learn to Play and hopefully convince some people to play 4e D&D at home. I'll get to see the new Red Box in action and hopefully make my saving throws against sleep. I may even give voices a try. :)

The monster builder workshop will be a great time too. My understanding is that Greg Bilsland will walk through the monster creation process. (At least, that's my hope.) Greg is a great guy and I can't wait to see him again.

While it may seem strange to have me DM a game in Hooters, I think it's a really funny plan and is going to be awesome. This cartoon (NSFW!) sums up how I'm viewing that game. Hopefully my story will be able to hold their attention long enough to get through a game.

And finally, I'm so honored to be able to play in Chris Sims' game. He even created a character just for me (at least that's what I'm telling myself), using a concept I sent him.

Beyond those planned events, I would love to run my lumbermill delve while I'm out there. I also need to meet a large number of people and thank them personally for all of their encouragement and advice over the last year or so. So if you're going to Gen Con, send me an email tracy [at] or a message on twitter. I'll also be tweeting and posting the best I can with my crazy schedule. Hope to see you there!


Awesome schedule! Full enough to keep you busy, with some dedicated "nothing in particular" time. Perfect.

Are you going to stop by the Drunken D&D game on Wednesday night?

Re: The Hooters game

- For those not in the know, this game is a part of my and my fiancee's Gencon Bachelor/ette party, plotted and organized by friends who found out I am getting married in November. Spontaneous awesomeness FTW!

- It'll start at 9:00-ish. 7-9 is the StupidRanger Roleplaying Therapy game, which I am a part of. After that, we'll head off to Hooters for awesomeness.

- I think Hooters closes at 1:00, but we can always just move the game to a hotel afterwards.

- Picture = Win! That's perfect for this type of game!
