So I am vicariously living through a friend's experiences at GenCon. Since I wasn't able to go (although I will be attending Worldcon '12 in a few weeks w/ media credentials I might add), I'm satiating myself w/ reading Dork Tower , digging through old game books, having a Star Wars marathon, and arranging mini's.

That's right, The Keep on the Borderlands using D&D Basic from 1981. The FIRST RPG module I ever played. A human fighter iirc. I'm highly tempted to rewrite it using a different system and rerun it. Just for fun.
