Thank you, The Gauntlet Community! Through your podcasts and discussions here, I was well-prepared to play RPGs I'd actually dig at GenCon. I knew better where my tastes and the games being run would cross because of all the games you play and then talk about. Plus, I saw that +Ray Otus
was running games, including Sorcerers & Sellswords. Having heard him mentioned on The Gauntlet a few times, I was already familiar with some of his work. I made sure I got to his table! (Thanks for the good times, Ray.)
I don't play as often or as varied a selection of games as many in this community, so getting in as many as possible during GenCon is a priority every year. I played: Fiasco, Lady Blackbird, Sorcerers & Sellswords, Goblintown, It's Not My Fault (basically Fate Accelerated Edition), Hexnoir (Technoir w/ elves and what-not - so kinda Shadowrun, I gather?), and a bunch of Dungeon World.
I also now have increased knowledge of what I'm missing, though. I did not get into Swords Without Master, Night Witches, a few others that I have heard on The Gauntlet or one of the affiliated podcasts that I think would've been fun. I'll have to rectify that!
