#RPGaDAY 2016, Day 18: Using Relationship Maps

This question is spawned from the IndieGameADay thing, which pokes fun at[1] #RPGaDAY with questions such as

  • What kind of shit-fit did you throw the last time someone tried to schedule your convention game in a ballroom like you’re playing fucking Pathfinder or something?
  • What was the very saddest thing you wrote on an index card? and
  • What is your fondest memory of a game you thought was fun before you knew better?

There’s a lot going on with the Gen Con experience. I am home, not attending this year, and I miss the show. I miss the experience.

Back in 2014, I almost went to Gen Con with my friends Ron and Vern as a revival of This Just In From Gen Con with the blessings[1] of the TJI stakeholders. But things out of our control happened and, well. There it lies.
