In addition, there are a lot of board games being played that would be of interest to the OSR, including Awful Green Things From Outer Space, Dune, etc. The complete schedule of all events can be found here.

Also, I'll be running Red Dragon Inn (B0604, Friday 2 PM - 4 PM) and Ogre Miniatures (W0798, Saturday 2 PM - 6 PM). While I've played and run Ogre Miniatures a bunch of times for the local gaming group, this will be the first time I've done so for a convention. Wish me luck! (Of the RPGs listed above, I'm running White Plume Mountain.)

This is looking to be an AWESOME convention, and keeps getting better every year. Hope to see some of you there!

The true Grumbler-A WotC story:

Down a long hall, in a dark room sits...The Grumbler.

WotC will not confirm his existence but his power is immense.

All day long he sits in an uncomfortable chair at a plain desk and chants "Stupid customers...mumble mumble old broken games...mumble mumble mumble...stupid customers...why not play new game...mumble mumble mumble...stupid customers".

Somewhere, in the old west, sits a bearded old man on top of a pile of gold as high as a Redwood tree. He sits there all day, complaining of hunger and thirst...but he's not selling that gold no sir. He's gonna sit on it.

DexCon-you rule!

BTW-Is there a blog or site that tracks all the cons? I would love to add it to The Eternal Keep. It seems like everyday I'm reading about a new one somewhere in the states. And does anyone cover the international scene?

Looking forward to seeing the Ogre game! Fingers crossed I can get some spots for it. :)
