(I hope this is an OK place to park the question - there's no 'convention' area designated)


Anyone headed to Columbus this summer for Origins?

I'll be running a bunch of wargaming events, but always happy to say 'hi' to fellow RPGers, too :)

Nothing wrong with posting this in the Magic Mirror, but I moved it to The Tabard Inn for more exposure :)

Wow, Origins is really one of those legendary conventions that I would love to go to some day. Too far at the moment, but perhaps some day. Is there much RPing going on there now?

Over 1800 events in the current event listing

They might not all make minimum enrollment, but that's still a few to choose from.

Here is the Events page for anyone who wants to look through the RPG and non-RPG events. :)

The Tabard Inn is for "off topic" stuff. This isn't really "off topic" because it's related to tabletop gaming. :)

I'm going to move this over to The Wishing Well. The Wishing Well is for RPG industry news (including convention dates).
