GaryCon

Post by True_Atlantean »

Hi everyone,

Two years ago when Gary Gygax passed away, some of my friends and I decided that we should get together and celebrate the hobby in rememberance of him. We gathered enough for two tables of players, including the sons of a few of the long-term gamers in town (this was their first experience of gaming), and played The Tomb of Horrors. Heaps of character deaths and repeated statements of 'you're disintegrated, no save' later we all decided that it was a good day.

Last year we played 'Keep on the Borderlands', with some of the guys mentioning that GaryCon (as it had been dubbed) was the only game they played during the year. It became a way of contacting people we didnt see often and throwing down some dice. Via the Wizards forums, we invited others worldwide to join in, and we had a handful of folks decide to.

This year, we're going to be playing again, on the weekend of March 6th and we'll be going an "Expedition to the Barrier Peaks', for better or worse.

MirageArcana (http://miragearcana.podbean.com) will be using March as D&D month - there will be some extra episodes with advice and adventure ideas, and we'd like you to join in the fun of GaryCon. Get some friends together, pick a module and go with it. It doesn't matter where, but we'd like to hear about it.

What we would also like is for people to share their GaryCon stories - or even simply best D&D moments or memories. We'll highlight a few on the show and spend some time thanking 'the man' for the hobby we all enjoy.

I hope that you'll all consider becoming involved.
