This past weekend was NecronomiCon in Providence, the first in over a decade. I had the good fortune to be able to attend (at least for a few hours) every day and had a wonderful time. While I have a bit to say about the Con, for those of you in a hurry, I present:
The Executive Summary
It was a very successful con, with only a few minor frustrations. I wished I’d been able to meet more people, but was glad to see those I did. While sometimes the RPG side of things felt a little shunted aside, it was amazing to have a venue in which so many of the people I’ve only known online could meet, talk, and game together.
For those looking for a more details discussion, here’s a recap, day by day followed by additional thoughts…
I will be in attendance at NecronomiCon in Providence tomorrow and Sunday. I’ll be running some games, selling copies of my new booklet, shooting the breeze, and generally have a good time (hopefully, I might end up eaten by a gug, but fingers crossed, eh?).
If your in Providence this weekend, look me up! I’ll be the con-goer not wearing a black t-shirt.
I thought I posted this earlier… but apparently I hit save draft instead.Anyway, let us all wish a happy 122 birthday for Howard Philips Lovecraft, gentleman of Providence. Technically he could still be alive today if he, well, hadn’t died of cancer in 1937 and turned out to be the second oldest person in history… Still, neat to imagine.
So, have some ice cream, worry about the influx of foreigners, and dream of amethyst cities lit by braziers of ineffably scented incense.
