This is only a little over a week away, and I am pretty pumped about going. I have signed up for a lot of Swords and Wizardry and a Expert game with Steve Winter as the DM. I am expecting much fun to be had!
Now one thing that I have to admit, I have NEVER played an RPG at a convention. Blasphemy? Perhaps! I only started going to conventions to play miniature war games about 8 years ago, competitive tournaments and friendly fun games. RPG's were always reserved for the game group only.
This may be because I always assumed that games at conventions were competitive! I thought everyone was scored and there was a "winner" and then of course "the losers". I did not want my RPG to be scored and graded. I thought that would ruin the game!
Of course now I know differently, that not all, even most, are NOT competitive point graded games. This makes me a very happy dude! :)
I am counting the days, and plan on cruzin on into Dallas sometime Thursday afternoon, in time to get settled and play the first session.
