A place wherein this Dwarven Cleric can share his love of maps, dice, miniatures, and all things involving gaming and general geekery--not to mention the occasional witty non-gaming observations--whilst escaping from the humdrum existence of his routine Terran existence.

Hail and Well Met, fellow traveler! May my Stronghold provide a place for enlightenment and amusement, and somewhere to keep your dice dry. Enter and rest awhile.

[D&D 40th Anniversary Bloghop] Day Eighteen

Day Eighteen: First gaming convention you ever attended.

This one's easy too.

I've never been.

I've done some writing conferences where gaming was present. I hit an Origins Star Trek convention that came through back in the day. I've hit a Comic-Con. But never a gaming convention. To my knowledge, they don't even occur around here.

Maybe someday. Although the grief and bad reviews that Gen Con has been getting lately, I'm not sure I want to make the effort. Maybe someone can convince me otherwise.

Gencon is crazy big and all the things you'd expect to go along with it; expensive food, lines, expensive hotels, lines, sold-out events, lines. It's sprawling. However, I'm going to try to muster the courage to go again this year and will write another review. A big reason I'm going is I got free housing (the last year I went, the hotel was over 300 per night!).
