And we comes to Day Four of Dragon*Con, the cruelest of Dragon*Con days. Why? Because most people don’t stay through Tuesday, seeing as how everything is done by 5pm (the panel schedule is so light that most people won’t find much to attend), it means they have to check out. By noon. Or 11am. Or whatever hour their hotel kicks them out. And many people when faced with the dilemma of having their luggage sit in the holding area under bellhop guard or just proceeding out to the car and heading home will head home. Checking out means Dragon*Con is over.
Where will I be today? In the Sheraton, Savannah room, hiding. We run a panel on legal issues in MMOs, another on Guild Wars 1 & 2, and our last panel of the con is where we talk about how the track did: what rocked, what sucked, and what we missed.
But what about yesterday? The Guild panel was great. Sandeep (Zaboo) and Jeff (Vork) are both great guys, oh and Sean Becker too (the director). After that I took my annual tour around the exhibitors and dealers halls, things were bought, pictures will be posted in the aftermath post tomorrow. I enjoyed the rest of my afternoon in my hotel room, trying to stay off my tired little feet. But after not going to and later hearing about the Kingdom of Loathing party, I knew I had to go. Plus, you know, last night of the con. Essentially, it’s like going to a room party in a hotel, only you don’t have to have a secret handshake to get in, we post it in the schedule and invite everyone! Day Three was a smashing success.
And look at that… I didn’t stumble into bed until nearly 5am and my 8am post is only 45 minutes late. I am a con warrior!
