GenCon 2008 Round Up!
So GenCon is over and all our fellow bloggers are back from their best 4 days of gaming.
Of course, being someone from Borneo I never had the chance of attending a GenCon. It would surely be nice to go attend it at least once for the experience, but while I wait for that unfulfilling dream to come true (someday), I can only have everyone's word (and my own imagination) about how awesome it is or what was it like to be there.
Never fear though. With RPG bloggers that you can find here, someone is bound to post something about it for sure. So here's a mini blog, or should I say, post roll that shares their experience about this year's GenCon (and nothing better than link-love).

Sadly, this year's GenCon is the first without its founder; the great Gary Gygax. A moment of silence was dedicated in his memory and there was even an memorial event commerated to him.
This story brings back good memories of the man when he was still alive. You must read it! It's filled with Gygaxian goodness!
Now I'll just have to wait for GenCon 2009.
