NOTE: If you are here for the Warhammer 40k D&D 5E Hack series, show up next week on Friday August 25th–I anticipate lots of questions for it and don’t want to leave people hanging all weekend while I’m at Gen Con. Hyper Score Marvel is also taking a week off while I’m out of town.

Are you going to be there? If you want to meet up that is awesome, email me about it, but otherwise saying “Yo!” is cool too. I look like this:

Your best chance of finding me is to hit the dealer’s room and go to Booth #2940 – End Transmission Games!

Note that I’m not actually working all of those hours in the booth, they are just the windows of hours you might expect to find me there.

2) Don’t smell bad.
3) Every cigarette dugout of gamers has at least 1 industry person in it (if not many)
4) Do you smell bad?
5) Eat food. Buy trail mix and stuff. Do not spend the convention waiting in line for food.
6) Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared for a lot of standing around if you are in for booth duty.
7) DO NOT use the main thoroughfare bathrooms.
8) What did you do with your phone and is your external battery charged?
9) Drink water.
10) Once again, do you smell bad?
11) Remember to be nice to people. If you don’t like how a game is going or somebody talking to you, politely excuse yourself and move on. If somebody bumps into you in the SEA OF HUMANITY just move on.
12) If you see something inappropriate going on, notify convention staff.
13) Remember to sleep at least a little bit.
14) If you are driving home, be wary of cops who know the roads will be busy and drive carefully (there are other exhausted congoers with places to be).
