    The great DungeonMastering get together at GenCon? Good question. I was hoping I would bump into readers there and see what happens.

    I’ll be in the Omni Severin hotel lobby at 6:30pm on Thursday (for 20 minutes, meeting with other DD&D players).
    I’ll be at the Ennie awards ceremony on Friday night.
    I’ll be at Out-of-the-box roleplaying on Sunday morning. >> http://www.stupidranger.com/2008/08/out-of-box-roleplaying-new-time.php

    That’s all I have planned.
