GeekDad really likes the Tunnels & Trolls Adventures. And as a sign of just how tired I must have been when I talked to him, I dont remember saying the quote from me that he used (although it's entirely accurate and sounds like me). https://geekdad.com/2017/09/gen-con-2017-talking-testing-tunnels-trolls/

Pretty cool! +MetaArcade's Hot Pursuit mini-solo adventure is (temporarily) for-free forever -- during PAX. https://www.metaarcade.com/blogroll/2017/8/31/pax-west-new-adventures-and-more

Home from Gen Con, still in recovery mode. In the air during the Great Eclipse, so what I got was all second hand. (Awesome, regardless!). No con-report of mine could do it justice... I'm horrified to miss someone/something because my brain is still mush and SO MUCH happened packed into too few days.

Highlights reel:
-- David Reid and +MetaArcade launched the Tunnels & Trolls Adventure app with great success, so far as I could determine! Thanks again to David for pulling me out of my burrow and making me attend.
-- Dinner/drinks with +Matt Forbeck and friends whom I would genuinely like to have had time to get to know better.
-- A strange prediliction to drink Sapphire and tonics, when that has not been my drink of choice before now. I may have finally found my new favorite adult beverage.
-- The embarrassing number of times people prefaced my name with "legendary" in utterly unironic tones. (Scary! I'm not dead yet!)
-- Discovering just how uncomfortable I am giving interviews to microphones and cameras. My mantra became "It's cool. I'll deal. Let's do this." Did quite a lot! Voicebox went to husky gravel by Thursday.
-- Friends friends friends! People I knew beforehand, people I knew only in virtual spaces, and not nearly enough time to spend with all of them. Similarly: far too many people I know were present, but we never got the opportunity to cross paths with one another, much less hang out together as in the old days. (That is probably the one big negative of how the show went for me. I am grateful for what socializing I got, but the show is just so damn big now.)
-- Getting to know Sam Riordan, one of MetaArcade's writers and my roommate; thank you again for being such an amazing person.
-- Finally, thanks to Mary for taking care of my pup and watching the house!

Next: RinCon in five weeks (Tucson), IlluxCon (+Jeannie Wilshire -- PA) two weeks after that, and the Magic Grand Prix in Phoenix the weekend after THAT. What the hell have I gotten myself in for...? Probably why I'm not smiling in the photo (sorry); I hadn't had enough coffee yet!

After planning not to go, I'm going to be at Gen Con 50 after all -- thanks to +MetaArcade. Brand new art to help promote their Tunnels & Trolls Adventures, and one of my erratic Oakheart blog posts will tell you all about it! http://www.lizdanforth.com/2017/08/gen-con-50/
