So, perhaps "off" is the wrong preposition, seeing as U-Con is happening pretty much around the corner from my house this year. Rise up, Michigander gamers, for the time is at hand for U-Con, the biggest gaming con in the state!
I've got a few things to do around the house before I head off, but before I go, I thought I'd remind the folks out there who might be attending (and who, by some amazing quirk of personality or happenstance) haven't yet signed up for my events, I'm running DCC tonight at 8pm to midnight (we'll probably get done a bit early so we can get in some bar time) and tomorrow from 3pm to 8 or so (again, bar time). I'll have the great fortune to run in a few of +R.J. Thompson's games and, if I'm lucky, I'll be able to squeeze in some +Matthias Weeks & +Donn Stroud lovin' too. The amazing Gamer Wife herself, +Kathryn Muszkiewicz, may not be attendance today since she seems to have seriously screwed up her neck somehow yesterday. I swear I had nothing to do with it. I was really hoping she'd come along, if only to meet some folks (like Will & Schar Niebling, who will be there and who I had the good fortune to meet a few weeks ago).
So, to reflect that reality, (a) there probably won't be a blog update this weekend or, if there is, it might not make a lot of sense (but regular readers should be used to those facts) and (b) the Metal Gods 'zine did not get finished in time for U-Con, sadly. In addition to a small art hang up, I had to switch gears from working on the zine to get "Con-ready" and that meant not being able to put in the time I had wanted to on it this week. So, I'm pretty sure we're on track for finishing her up next week (before Thanksgiving) and sending her off to Goodman for approval (which I've heard doesn't take too long).
Word. Now I'm off. See you at U-Con!
