Day 31: Favorite non-RPG thing to come out of RPGing
That's a pretty easy one.
The friendships I have made over the years. Going all the way back to Jr. High to today I have had the pleasure to meet so many really cool people. Not just "famous" people, but people I consider friends.
One of the the things I love most about Gen Con, or any large Con, is walking around and seeing so many people enjoying the same hobby as me. Maybe not always the same game, but the same sorts of things. These people are kindred. They are my tribe.
Despite anything else that happens in gaming I still value to people I have met along the way.
