Not sure if anyone on this board goes to any comic conventions and the like - is anyone attending Gen Con in Indy next week for the big 50?

awesome, man! Not sure if you saw but the PDF came out for their program book - let me know if you want me to send it to you. I'll be at Author's Avenue - Forging of a Knight is my booth!

Didn't see PDF. I was way too lazy and didn't get room till late and only have tickers for Thursday so far.

Definitely have to stop by at your booth and be a "Mystery" \:P

But sure would love to have the pdf...easier to look at then randomly look up event names.

By the way...have you noticed how the Super Hero RPG's sessions always seem to fill up so fast at Gen Con? \:\)

Im amazed how fast this has come to being sold out. Last year was 60K+ so I can only imagine the crowds for the 50th...

The PDF is too huge for here - let me know if you have an email you would like me to forward this to, or via facebook.

lol - please do! Being behind a booth prevents me from doing any real gaming, sad to say - I usually just hit the free movies and peruse the exhibit floor before the crowds come and after they are booted out, lol.

Not sure when you arrive - I'm heading out sans wife/son b/c my son starts school the same week - they have a social meet and greet at "The Stink" Wed from 5-8pm in the Union Station Ballroom, FYI.

YES - I think its great to see super hero gaming alongside the standard Sci Fi/Horror/Fantasy stuff. The cosplay parades are wild - last year they had a husband/wife duo dressed up as the movie Iron Man and movie War Machine - they must have spent mondo $$ b/c the suits looked just as real as the big screen versions.

Guess I am a doofus I see email...but don't see how that sends you an email.

Must drive you nuts...so much good stuff and cant get out to see it much. Even us free floating all conners still miss so much.

I get in Wed afternoon and staying through Sunday. My girl will lkely spend most of her time at the crafts and "learn to do this" sigh-ups.

For like gen 47 I saw a whole group of people looking like zombie TC cameramen and reporter...they looked great.

Nope - not just you - since I don't know your email I can't send out to you from here at least.

Yep - same here - its a 4 hour drive for me (I live in Illinois) so I'm hoping to get in by 3-4, get my booth set up and then hit the get-together at the Union Station Ballroom and hit dinner afterwards.

Tried sending you a PM...let me know if you didn't get it.

Was great meeting you Hugh. Gen Con was pretty darn good this year. Hope you made it safe.

P.S. I saw no one dressed up as Riri and only one as Iron Man this year...hop Marvel isn't making him B-list again.

Some really good spiderman costumes I grabbed pics of but not sure allowed to post them here.
