I am in Geek Heaven

Sarah Darkmagic - Posted on 26 March 2010

I can't go to another con again because it will be pretty hard to beat this one. I spent the Thursday before PAX East in the lobby of the Sheraton Copley, meeting tons of people and playing games. I'm not normally a board or card game person, but I decided to give them a shot. After a day of work, it was hard for me to pick them up, but I had a great time and Phil, a.k.a. @chattydm, and his friends were patient teachers. Being able to play with Phil and Quinn, @gamefiend, was a great start to the evening. I got to meet up with a bunch of other people including Dan (@exedore6), Mark (@AsmodeusLore) and Jason (@Neldar). One of the guys from my group, Mike (@TheMikeKatz) was also there. I wish I could have spent more time with all of them and I hope to make up for my shortcomings the rest of the weekend.

As if all of that wasn't awesome enough, I got to meet Wil Wheaton and Scott Kurtz and had them sign my Dungeon Master's Guide. This was huge for me and I really want to thank them and their friends for allowing me to spend a few minutes with them. The D&D podcasts are why I started playing and DMing and I wish I could convey to them how much the people who were and are part of it really helped change my life. It sounds really silly and corny I know, but until I started getting involved in the online community, I wouldn't have had the courage to talk to them. Heck, I wouldn't have had the courage to go to a con to begin with.

Afterwards, I got to meet some of the great WotC group, many of whom I've been following on twitter. I know I met Greg Bilsland (@gregbilsland), Trevor Kidd (@Wizards_DnD), and Chris Tulach (@christulach). There were a few other people there as well.

So I want to thank everyone who reads this blog and follows me on twitter. And I especially want to thank all the great people tonight (and I mean every single one of you) who helped make my first con experience one I will never forget.


I bow to you cos you met Wil.
