Back from SoCal MiniCon 5

Hey all,

I just finished playing in Bedivere's 1st edit. AD&D Puzzle Tower game at SoCal MiniCon 5. It was a lot of fun to be able to hang out and play and also meet some really cool people.

It was a sparse turn out this year, therefore this was the only morning/afternoon game going. There were some familiar faces from last year's event as well as a few new ones (well, new to me at least!). The other players were Mobad (human paladin), Tony (elven magic user), T. Foster (human magic user), and Cimmerian (human cleric). I played a half elven bard named Jonathan Wolf. We almost had a 6th player (jallison86), but unfortunately he was there only for a short while and didn't participate.

Bedivere's game was a lot of fun. Great DMing too. There was a great mix of combat encounters and other situations where a little thought and creativity was needed. In the end our gang of stalwart adventurers was successful in completing the adventure!

Many thanks to Bedivere for holding the event in his area and also for DMing! I'm looking forward to next year already. But can we all wait that long? Monk and I have been knocking around the idea of getting a Mini-Mini Con going in a few months..... We'll see how that pans out!

  1. Hi,

    Apologies for the off-topic comment, but I couldn't find a contact email for you.

    A while ago I put out an ebook of my writing, called The New Death and others. It's mostly short stories, with some obvious gamer-interest material. For example I have a story inspired by OD&D elves, as well as poems which retell Robert E Howard's King Kull story The Mirrors of Tuzun Thune and HP Lovecraft's Under the Pyramids.

    I was wondering if you'd be interested in doing a review on your blog (either a normal book review, or a review of its suitability as gaming inspiration).

    If so, please email me: Let me know what file format is easiest for you, and I'll send you a free copy.

    You can download a sample from Smashwords:

    I'll also link to your review from my blog.
