THIS is what GenCon looks like. I've been seeing lots of posts from people showing the mad crush outside the vendor hall with some misleading statements that imply that all of Gen Con is a human sardine experience. It's not true. This is Friday night in the main gaming hall. Are there a lot of people? YES! Are they all crushed together with no room? No. Aisles are wide and open, everyone has a chair. THIS is GenCon.

Most interesting article on weight loss I've ever read.

I'm so much more confident now — but I wish I'd found a way to be comfortable in my own skin even without the weight loss.

The World Before Time may be gone - shattered by malign forces, and consigned to a demise no-one could have foretold- but this doesn't mean your collection of miniatures needs to meet the same fate. Available here for free download is everything you need to use your existing collection in games ...

+David McGuire Exactly.  Sure, in a group of friends, that isn't a problem.  But if they want to spread the game, grow it, bring in new players?  They need a game that works in a store, in a gaming group, in public events.  You need to be on even footing in those sorts of settings.

It's been my experience over decades of gaming, that what one gaming group considers reasonable, fair play to the spirit of the rules is often entirely different from what the next gaming group thinks.  With "rules" this loose?  That'd be a nightmare.

Oh, man.  I even play with this stuff all the time (I love magnets!) but this never even occured to me.  Sweet merciful carp, that is a freaking awesome conversion. 

I'm so stealing that shit.

+t3harch1t3ct Seriously, man, that is awesome.  And cool hovering aside, it's really outstanding work on it's own, too.  Wow.
