Gen Con: Where You Can Find Me, and What’s In My Backpack

26 Jul

Gen Con 2015Gen Con starts in just a few days. Hooray! Also, aiyee!

I’m on multiple panels this year, and will cover a shift at the Kobold Press booth (#2639) Saturday morning. The rest of the time you’ll find me at the Pelgrane Press booth (#609), running around the convention center doing PR stuff, or — fingers crossed — actually gaming at least once.

Here’s my panel schedule — all 13th Age panels are in the Crowne Plaza hotel, room Pennsylvania Station B:

Thursday
11:00 AM -SEM1568531: 13th Age Adventure Design Workshop
1:00 PM – SEM1572186: 13th Age Organized Play: The New Season
Friday
11:00 AM – SEM1568533: 13th Age GM Roundtable

Sunday

Over on Facebook, Bill Collins listed the contents of his backpack, and asked what his fellow Gen Con attendees were packing for the trip. Here’s my Gen Con travel kit:
  • Laptop computer
  • Device cables in a Grid-It organizer
  • Two fully-charged device chargers
  • Sharpie pens and a pencil
  • A clean handkerchief
  • Super absorbent camping towels from REI
  • Spry peppermint gum
  • Extra lip balm
  • Dental floss
  • Moist wipes
  • Travel snacks
  • Airborne
  • Nexus 7 tablet with roleplaying game PDFs loaded
  • Business cards
  • Index cards
  • iPhone tripod
  • Small bag of dice
That’s what I’m bringing on the plane. When I’m on the show floor, I might pare this down considerably.
Ah, who am I kidding? WHAT IF I NEED DENTAL FLOSS AND DON’T HAVE IT.

    Dental Floss is totally a requirement. Plus it can double as a Garrote or Emergency Zipline if you have to go into Feng Shui mode.
