I’m off up to London and thence to Detroit City to participate in Epic Confusion, where activities will include an all-star authorial D&D session featuring:
Brent Weeks – Cleric
Scott Lynch – Gnome Illusionist
Elizabeth Bear – Ranger
Jim Hines – Fighter
Peter Brett – Monk
Pat Rothfuss – Wizard
Joe Abercrombie – Thief
And being Dungeon Mastered by Myke Cole and Saladin Ahmed.
How cool is that? Alright, so it’s not exactly cool as most of the world’s population would define the term. But I still reckon it’s pretty cool, if you know what I mean. I’ve even broken my dice out of cold storage. The feel of those cool plastic edges in my palm, like an old warrior unearthing his old broadsword from his war-chest, preparing to enter battle one last time against insurmountable odds … Well, alright, not much like that at all.
See you next week.
