Of Armadillos & d20s

I'm pleased to announce that I've been invited to join the fun at the North Texas RPG Convention.  The event will take place early June 2016 at the Dallas-Ft. Worth Marriott.  This announcement is sort of a non-secret secret, since I'm supposed to be a surprise guest there.  I've been told it's fine to make an announcement nonetheless.  It'll be a surprise for people who are unaware of my blog(s).  I'm looking forward to joining this convention.  I've heard nothing but good things about it, and as a bonus, a lot of my colleagues from old TSR will be there.  Here is the list (not final yet), of who else is supposed to be present & accounted for:
  • Bob Bledsaw Jr,
  • Jason Braun,
  • Mike Breault,
  • Chris Clark,
  • David 'Zeb' Cook,
  • Michael Curtis,
  • Darlene,
  • Jeff Dee,
  • Matt Finch,
  • Jeff Grubb,
  • Allen Hammack,
  • Kevin Hendryx,
  • Jon Hershberger,
  • Jennell Jaquays,
  • Timothy Kask,
  • Doug Kovacs,
  • David 'Diesel' LaForce,
  • Steve Marsh,
  • Frank Mentzer,
  • Douglas Niles,
  • Erol Otus,
  • Steve Perrin,
  • Merle Rasmussen,
  • Lawrence Schick,
  • Mike Stewart,
  • Dr. Dennis Sustare,
  • Bill Webb,
  • Steve Winter
This is a lot of fine people.  This ought to be fun.  I'm not sure yet what event I'll be running, as these news just came down.  Likely: a Calidar session using BECMI game mechanics, and possibly a seminar on world building.  Maybe more.  The convention takes place early June--based on current projections CC1 "Beyond the Skies" (Calidar's 2nd book release) is slated for the summer of 2016.  Early June is possible but cutting it really close for the new book's availability at the convention.  Although possible, I may just have a prepress version for demonstration.

This is good news either way.  Hope to see you there.  Until then, I'll also be at Lake Geneva's Gary Con, in March 2016. Cheers!
