those stormtrooper costumes kick ass! i’m always amazed at the level of detail and the amount of creative energy that people put into costumes. what’s that quote from Oscar Wilde about masks? something like give someone a mask, and you will get the truth.
hope you’re playing some games, along with taking pictures!

Yep, I played several games yesterday. I kept turning to Scott and saying “my God, I am in awe of the biggness of Gencon.”

The convention center takes up an entire city block. However, there are 4 or 5 hotels connected to the convention center via these giant hamster tubes above street level and there are lots of events scheduled in these hotels.

Again, I am in awe of the bigness of this convention. And yes, I playing some games everyday.


  • Dave: Not sure, Bryan, but I'd love to know where Craig lives.
  • Bryan Hanks: What city were those in?

  • epiphenita: Like Tom Waits without the music.
  • epiphenita: Reminds me of my good friend's artwork: http://victoriacarlson.blogspot.com/2009/06/untitled.html
  • Dave: I think someone should make some dance music from those "WHOAHs."
  • epiphenita: Oh, Dave. That was tonic to my soul. Perfect. I vote for an exorcism.
  • Dave: Hmm, looks sober to me.
  • Scott: I'm thinking that the guy with the hat might have had a drink or two before this picture was taken. Just a hunch...
  • Scott: There's a roleplaying scenario just waiting to be written based on these pictures. :-)


Stepping over the steaming pile of reality. This is one man's journey into the absurd.
