Well, it appears I started to blog about Gary Con and got side-tracked.
This was my first Gary Con and it truly did not disappoint. Lake Geneva is beautiful. It could have been warmer but, in my opinion, the warmth was felt within the walls of the Grand Geneva. I am talking about the people of RPGs.
I have coined the creature/monster…the warm fuzzy gelatinous cube. Where in a game of D&D your character does not want to get oozed into one to be digested and the only remains are that of things with you that can not be digested.
Getting oozed into the warm fuzzy gelatinous cube of the RPG family, you do not mind having your brain taken over by the fantasy role-playing community. This warm fuzzy gelatinous cube is one huge hug. What you want to do when you feel the ooze of this creature engulf you is to just relax and let it take over. There is no Reflex Save that you can make to let the warm fuzzy gelatinous cube release you. And for the life of George, you hope you do not make your Reflex Save.
Now I share with you that I am specifically talking about the Goodman Games Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG (DCC RPG) family of creators, authors, judges (GMs), and players. This gregarious lot of people act like the warm fuzzy gelatinous cube I described above. And I will, in no way, roll a Reflex Save against this creature. I am beyond the saving point. And I believe you will agree if you ever come in contact with the Goodman Games community.
Here I want to direct you to a few podcasts that will describe this warm fuzzy gel cube of DCC RPG: Spellburn — began in 2014 and is at its 66th episode. Spellburn won a Silver Ennie in August 2017 at GenCon 50 in Indianapolis, IN.; Sanctum Secorum — Plums the depths of Appendix N as it applies to DCC RPG.; and Appendix N — Where the books of Appendix N are reviewed.
In the last two podcasts listed, each one has a Judge J from the podcast Spellburn. I highly recommended these podcasts to you. In whatever order you decided to listen, whether that be from the first to the most recent or vi-a-vi, you will not be disappointed. And my predictions is that you will feel the ooze of the warm fuzzy gel cube surround you. I will welcome you in and to the DCC RPG family.
Now, from here, it was on to Who’s Yer Con which happened just 3 weeks later. See you in the next blog.
