Convention Season 2015

Things have changed quickly in the last week or two! Edmund and I are now scheduled to attend at least three game conventions this year.

Dragonflight

Attending as staff: I’m doing the program layout for Dragonflight Convention, for the eighth year in a row.  I’ve submitted a couple of War of Ashes: Fate of Agaptus events, one in the native setting and one using the Mouse Guard setting. (Official site.)

CelestiCon

Attending as guest (ugh, I forgot to send them a picture): running War of Ashes: Fate of Agaptus. Hopefully, I’ll have the print book in hand by then, that would be so much nicer. (Official site.)

Big Bad Con

October 16-18 (San Francisco Bay Area)

Attending as staff: I’m in charge of coordinating GM recruitment for RPGs. I have not submitted games yet because I’m waiting to see if we have any last-minute GM cancellations I need to fill in for. (Official site.)

Advent Day 19: Patience

Today’s topic is “Patience.” This is a bonsai from Weyerhaeuser Company’s Pacific Rim bonsai and penjing collection in Federal Way, Washington. How patient do you have to be to start a gardening project that will outlive you by centuries?

Advent Day 16: Strong

Today’s topic is “Strong.”  I was raised in a lushly wooded area and as a kid I would go take comfort under the largest trees I could find when I was upset; trees are still my symbol of strength and my refuge.  Big trees are one of the reasons I love the Pacific Coast.

The photo was taken at Dash Point State Park in Washington State.

Advent Day 14: Gather

Today’s topic is “Gather.” I’ve always liked this image because the entangled driftwood, worn smooth by the tides, forms a basket to hold beach pebbles tossed in by the waves.

The photo was taken on the beach of the Dungeness Spit National Wildlife Refuge in Sequim, Washington (pronounced “Skwim”), between Christmas and New Year 2004.
