I'm pretty sure that one of my players, a photography geek, would use at least one of his daily rages to attack that fuzzy picture :). Or do you have a blur casting wizard in your midst? ;)

Would have loved to be at GenCon. Have fun :).

Yeah, my hands actually shake a lot and I hadn't eaten yet, which makes it worse. I console myself with the fact that it might be a somatic component for a spell...or the fact that I'm using a cel phone.

Whenever we post pictures from our cell phones of Gen Con or Paizocon or whatever, people always complain that they're blurry. The alternative is that we just stop posting such pictures.

Don't worry - I was jesting :). Love seeing the pictures. Living in Europe it's the closest I'll get :).


I usually solve my hands-shaking problem with a breakfast smoothie
and by breakfast smoothie I mean a bottle of gin

How does it feel to be the co-sponsors for GenCon this year? Are any of the staff swaggering (more than usual) through the vendor hall? Will it be hard to fill up that extra 30% area in your booth?

Or we could post EVEN BLURRIER PICTURES and act like they're perfectly clear. That'll confuse people.

Does being a co-sponsor with Mayfair come with any perks for set-up and break-down? Was Paizo's banner the first to be hung up this year? Does anyone remember Sizzlean? "Move over bacon, here's something meatier!"

We had access to the dealer hall for setup yesterday, which is a day earlier than normal. From the looks of pictures, it seems that the extra day made load-in easier, and they're quite a bit ahead of the normal rate of assembly compared to past years. I'm actually a little sad I wasn't one of the first wave of employees this year, as I've gotten used to and quite enjoy the setup phase of the show.

Man, I'd hate to be the guy up in that lift that has to hold that sign all through GenCon.


Drat And Bother! I am at home on my pc and there is Free Bacon at the Paizo booth!

You could always get one of those fancy new Lumia 1020s with optical image stabilization ;-)
