OK, I didn't go to GenCon this year, even though it's not that far. I've been laid off since before the last one, and I didn't want to blow the cash. But, I did learn a few things. First of all my friends are awesome. Each one brought me a little something. Cool dice and Kobold patches and stuff. Thanks again kids!
Secondly, there are organizations that will pay for your room and badge. All you have to do is DM while you are there. Cripes, I've been doing it for nothing. Sign me up!
Thirdly, if you buy 23 Decks of Many Things at the Green Ronin booth they will give you a hell of a deal. Wait, What?
Yes, one of my friends bought a 23 Decks of Many Things so that he would have one regular deck and 22 decks with 22 of the same card in it. Diabolical. I'm not going to rat him out, but be afraid, very afraid.
Hopefully the Winds of Employment will shift soon. Next year I hope to be hardly sleeping in my free room, DM'ing my butt off, and not buying 22 extra Decks of Many Things.
