D&D General Why Gary Con


I crit!
Thomas Valley wrote something great in 2015 to Luke Gygax.

“People will come, Luke. They’ll come to Lake Geneva for reasons they can’t even fathom. They’ll turn into your driveway, not knowing for sure why they’re doing it. They’ll arrive at your door, as innocent as children, longing for the past.

“Of course, we won’t mind if you look around,” you’ll say, “It’s only twenty dollars per person.” And they’ll pass over the money without even thinking about it, for it is money they have and peace they lack. And they’ll walk off to the Geneva Ridge Resort and sit with their Crown Royal dice bag on a perfect afternoon. And find they have reserved seats somewhere at a gaming table where they sat when they were children. And cheer their hero.

And they’ll watch the game, and it’ll be as they’d dipped themselves in magic waters. The memories will be so thick, they’ll have to brush them away from their faces. People will come, Luke.

The one constant through all the years, Luke, has been Dungeons and Dragons. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It’s been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But Dungeons and Dragons has marked the time. This Dungeon Master's Screen, this game, is a part of our past, Luke. It reminds us of all that once was good, and that could be again.

Oh people will come, Luke. People will most definitely come.”
