Richard's Ramblings

Just because sometimes my mind overflows its brainpan. Figured this would make as good of an outlet to catch those overflows as any. No set theme, topic, or schedule, just whatever and whenever. :)

GenCon Final Day

Good morning all! No (semi)-live blogging today, just one brief one since I'll only be at the show for a couple hours before I go catch my flight home. We don't have anything scheduled for the day work wise so it will pretty much just be shopping time for me.

But just so you didn't think we have been completely slacking since my last update yesterday afternoon, I also wanted to fill in a bit on what all we did since that update and on into the night.

From 1400 until about 1630 I wandered around getting play time on as many of the various MMOs as I could; DDO, LotRO, WAR, Champions Online, PotBS, AC1, a couple odd MMO/RTS and MMO slash collectible RTS things...

At 1730 we had our scheduled interview with Jack Emmert of Cryptic Studios where we mostly talked about Star Trek Online, but managed to slip in a couple Champions Online questions as well. I should have my written teaser/overview article of that up shortly after I get back. After that Szark went over to cover a panel discussion Jack was giving about Star Trek Online in a conference room at one of the nearby hotels.

For dinner we attended a party for RA Salvatore, celebrating the 20th anniversary of Drizzt, which makes me feel REALLY old now... It was a GREAT time, a huge thanks to Wizard of the Coast for hosting it and the Salvatores for getting us in!

After that we went to the CCP & White Wolf party. Those guys are tops when it comes to throwing a fan appreciation party. If you are ever at a convention or anything where they have a booth, I highly recommend you find out when and where the afterparty is and be there. Much fun was had by all in attendance. Big big thanks to you CCP folks for the invites and the whole party in general.

Wasn't much after that, wandered back to my room at about 4am, awake and ready to go at 8am, gotta love conventions. :) So again, thanks for suffering through these slowly updated semi-live blogs for the past 4 days, hope you enjoyed them. I'm off to the con for a couple hours of mingling, hanging out and shopping before I head to what I have to assume is an insanely overcrowded airport.
