I meant to do a post about this sooner but things just got away from me. But in case it needs to be said, I'll be at Gencon this year with my roommate Sean, from Wednesday to (probably) Monday. I'm already scheduled to run a Monster of the Week game on Friday evening (game ID RPG17110659), and I'm looking at doing a late submission for one on Saturday. The Friday game's already sold out, but maybe keep an eye on it if you want a spot, see if something opens up. I'll keep folks updated regarding the game I'll likely run on Saturday. (Though to be fair, the Venn diagram of 'people who read this blog' and 'people who have the time/inclination to hang out with me at Gencon' has very little overlap, so I'm not holding my breath.)
Of course, if anyone does want to hang out, feel free to reach out to me on the blog comments or via Twitter or anyplace else you know how to find me.
On a related note, this will probably be my last 'regular' Gencon for a while. As much as I love the convention and visiting downtown Indianapolis, it's becoming harder and harder to get an affordable hotel room within walking distance (yes, yes, there are many affordable hotel rooms out by the airport, but I'm of the opinion that I should enjoy my trip rather than spend an hour+ each day just on traffic and parking). I'd honestly love to see numbers on just how many rooms the hotels actually have on the room block before people have to go to the non-block rooms where the prices are jacked up such that each night costs more than a weekend's stay in some places. I might show up in future years for special events/releases, but after this year it's not going to be a given that I'll be attending as a regular thing.
