Speaking of conventions, I see New Hampshire’s OGC has their event schedule online for your perusal. OGC — short for Open Gaming Convention — is an intimate, role-playing-centric convention. Everybody knows everybody, either because they’re active in the local gaming community or they’re fellow gadabouts on the New England convention circuit.
Some of my favorite convention GMs are running games there this year, as they always do. As well as other acclaimed GMs whom I haven’t had the opportunity to witness at their craft.
At a time of year when everybody’s talking about Gen Con, it’s reassuring to know that the local game scene stays the course, nice and steady.
