Frist up, met up with a friend at AdeptiCon on Friday for some Chicago style pizza.
On my way I picked up a copy of Tales from the Yawning Portal and Paternoster Investigations. Just not sure if it needs to go on my Doctor Who shelf or my Victorian Age shelf!
Saturday we I got up early and drove up to Gary Con.
I ran into so many people I knew. It was so great to see +Erik Tenkar, +Jeff Talanian, +R.J. Thompson, +Frank Mentzer, +Bruce Heard, +Tim Kask, +Tim Burns, +Venger Satanis, +Satine Phoenix, Stephen Chenault (+Ends Meet Productions), +Mike Mearls, +Bill Barsh, and Danny O'Neill of Hammerdog Games.
Ran into Erik and picked up the AWESOME S&W Light. Helluva job on that!
Bill Barsh of Pacesetter was there too selling also sorts of great stuff. I picked up his new 5e adventure Beyond the Caves of Chaos and some great minis; a "demon witch" which looks exactly like the Pacesetter Witch of Monte Rosa and Demogorgon.
Speaking of Caves of Chaos...
The word is out that Goodman Games will be producing reprint/updates to classic modules.
First up are B1 and B2. The new books will include the original versions, a new version for 5e and a bunch of additional material.
Ran into Bruce Heard and got "our favorite book" signed.
He says expect some more Calidar material soon!
Also ran into Frank Mentzer again. He signed my British Basic book print.
It says: "To Tim (and Family) best 'Witches' from Frank"!
Hoping the see something really great coming up from Frank here soon.
Stopped by the Troll Lords booth and picked up the C&C and 5th edition versions of "Mystical Companions". Both look fantastic. Can't wait to review them. Also grabbed a copy of Bluffside.
Spent the rest of the time playing 5th edition Against the Giants.
The party entered The Hall of the Fire Giant King!
Right before I left I was sitting at the table playing running G3 when Danny O'Neill comes by a sees my GM screen, which he notices is one of his World's Greatest Screens from Hammerdog Games. He takes some pictures and notices my screen has a manufacturing defect in it. I was going to fix it with some duct tape (of course) but he goes downstairs to his booth and brings back a brand new screen for me! How is that for customer service! I mean seriously. I am glad I own two of these (one for D&D and another for Ghosts of Albion). THAT is dedication to customers.
Sunday it was back to Adepticon to pick up some more minis!
Everyone had a great time. Especially my wife who has now taken up painting minis!
She has no idea how much I am going to throw her way. ;)
