There is a limit on tickets, so its already capped. Its nearly max capacity for the venue based on what I saw this year. A lot of fun, and I have a room for next year but I'm not sure I'll be going. its a lot of money when its all said and done and that could go to another good trip.GaryCon is a blast! It’s also growing fast. I wouldn’t be surprised if they put a cap on attendance.
Also GameHoleCon is awesome and is one of the big three or four bucket list cons in my humble opinion.
I think the edition treadmill fatigue hits a lot of folks. Which makes 5es continued blockbuster growth even more amazing.
I have the fantasy about writing my own rpg but I dont have any good ideas yet, when I have tried I end up stealing ideas from here and there, and end up with nothing remotely fresh. In other threads it was mentioned that a good start is to write adventures first, which are shorter and simpler, so I made a draft but havent even playtested yet.I believe that was Poseidon giving you a chance to find RPG joy in a new way. Ever tried writing?
I've looked at them. I'm not loving the CCC, DDAL or DDEX mods - these are part of an organized play system and are tied together in some fashion. I'm really looking for standalone mods that *I* can tie together however I see fit, that are really short like the old 32-page TSR mods, but that have enough info to make it easy for a DM to run. Nothing out there seems to fit what I want. They are either super elaborate, too detailed in the wrong areas, or so tied to specific locales that I'd have to do a bunch of work to make them flow properly - which takes time that I don't have...Seriously, look at dmsguild. Especially the things designed just for this. Like the AL and CCC mods.
