Convention Coverage Draws Nigh

That’s right! In only a couple of days, I am going to be beginning my Summer Convention Madness. That means that Origins is in two days, then I get a week off, then I got to KantCon, get three weeks off, then cap off the summer with GenCon.

I’m really looking forward to spending time at these conventions. Not only will I get a chance to play some really cool games, but I will also be doing interviews with game designers and companies, as well as providing you with some Actual Play game sessions (assuming that whatever game I play in would be okay with my recording of the session audio).

I know, I know. I can hear you all right now. “But, Tracy! How can I help out? How can I, a loyal reader of Troll in the Corner since its inception, help you make this best convention coverage to ever appear on any website, anywhere?”

Well, loyal readers, the best way to do that is to give me feedback. And how can you do that? Well, you can always leave me comments here, which is awesome. You can follow me on Twitter, as I will be updating throughout all of the conventions, and you can always send me an email. The link is at the bottom of the post.

So that’s it for me for a day or so. I’m going to do my best to get a few posts up during Origins, but I don’t know if I’ll have Wi-Fi during the day or not. Twitter is your place for regular updates, and after Origins, expect a flood of content.

Now, where’d I put my copy of “On the Road Again?”

  1. Two things:

    1.) When you corner someone for an interview, try to keep a crazed, wide-eyed look off of your face. I learned this the hard way at ComicCon after too many latte’s and one close encounter with author Terry Brooks. Who now thinks I should be on anti-psychotics.

    2.) Never, ever mention “On the Road Again” as that *@#&(!& song is now on permanent reply inside my skull.


  2. I’ll do my best to keep the wide-eyed look off of my face. It’ll help that I don’t know a lot of the Names in the industry, so I’m just going to be going with my gut as to whom I should be talking to. Hopefully it works out.


  3. The good news is, if they are on a panel, someone likes them. Which means someone cares, and I kind of see Troll ITC as being still small enough that we can get a lot of value catering to niche audiences.


  4. Agreed. It may sound unintuitive, but I’m going to leave the big stuff to the big outlets. Everyone covers a WotC announcement, but the independents get far, far less play. I’d like to help them change that a little.
