Convergence 2014 is nigh — this coming weekend, in fact.
Convergence is getting bigger and bigger. So big that people are avoiding it. As Yogi Berra said, “Nobody goes there anymore. It’s too crowded.”
So big, too, that it feels like programming is getting squeezed — there just isn’t room for all the cool stuff that people want to see happen. So there aren’t many panels about gaming; I only count three or four panels directly related to tabletop RPGs.
Me, I’ll be on two panels at Convergence:
So You Want to Be a Panelist?
Veteran panelists and moderators will share what works and what doesn’t. It will also cover the CONvergence panel process.
Friday July 4, 2014 12:30pm – 1:30pm
Not really gaming-related at all! But a topic of meta-interest. I hope we can dispel some of the notions that you have to be an ultra-fan or super-pro before volunteering to be on a panel.
Gaming When You Have a Life
Mods and DMs, how do you handle being adequately prepared to give your players the best possible experience when you’re balancing family, a full-time job, etc. We’ll discuss Pathfinder Adventure Paths and other timesaving options.
Friday July 4, 2014 5:00pm – 6:00pm
And that’s a topic of interest to many of us! We’ve had a bit of pre-discussion, and it promises to be a pretty good panel.
I should have copies of Blade & Crown for sale, and I’m always interested in talking to fellow gamers about topics of mutual interest. Look me up if you’re there!
