Yep, GenCon opens today in Indy, and GameBoys were walking all over the streets. Better yet, the one and only Jack of None ([Bad username: anima mecanique]) is in town for the Con, and staying with me. Don't know how much of each other we'll see, since I'm working tomorrow, and she'll be in games a lot of the time; she has her first LARP from 7 pm to 11 pm tonight.
It's just not the same without any LOTR peeps or games or merchandise to look for... but hopefully it'll be fun just for the geekiness of it. I'll pop in for a couple of hours on Saturday and Sunday, and I might get talked into a beginner's LARP based on Cthulhu... even though I've only read a little Lovecraft.
Hope you RenFair goers have fun!
