Nope. But I'm thinking of trying for next year.

I'm going on Saturday and Sunday. I'm not signed up for any games, just a tourist. I'll try posting-up some pics. ;)

That must have been fantastic to experience! Wouldn't it be neat to see a 'time-lapse' view of what the con looked like and what was going on as the year's went by.

I should go one of these days; give me a reason to go back to Indy, visit some friends. Although only one of my old D&D pals is still there...

Paizo's CEO, Lisa Stevens, just wrote a blog post about some of the highlights in her time earlier this week. She's only been going since 1984, but it's close.

It would be really interesting to get a retrospective on the con from various creators, participants, etc over the years. I know I'm always amazed by the changes in the SD Comic-Con in just the few years that I've been, spaced out over more than a decade now. It's both more and less than it was.

One day I'll go just to experience it. Of course, that number of people is a bit higher than I'm used to dealing with. :p
