GenCon 2010 Blog

GenCon Day GC T-4 (Sunday, August 1).

Worked today and enjoyed it, with breakfast at church, then Sunday School and worship. A lot of people were gone on vacation trips, but we still had good singing and a sermon on Zechariah 1:1-6. Then, at noon, I became, officially "on vacation."

The afternoon has been spent eating left-overs for lunch (a swiss and Prem sandwich on whole grain bread), taking a nap, and thinking about the next week. I've already been shopping at the Dollar Store for Slim Jims to eat during the tournament events (keep the diabetic in protein). I also sat doing this and watching the Food Channel on TV. So, it's vacation for sure!

Watching the weather...it is 99 in Little Rock right now and 85 in Indy. I'll take the cooler weather as a travel bonus, if I can get it. We're predicted to have temps over 100 (real temperature) all week long.

GenCon Day GC T-3 (Monday, August 2).

A sure sign...

On Dungeons and Dragons 'Scape

I can remember, when I was four years old, at my grandparents’ home in Wisconsin, sitting on the cold floor, putting together puzzles. One was a Hopalong Cassidy one and another the Cisco kid. That might give you a clue to the ancient era of this memory. My mother, later, told the story that when there, I was sleep-walking, my hands moved as if putting the puzzle pieces in place in my sleep. I was hooked on puzzles.

Six years later, at age ten, I was introduced to a brand-new game, Tactics II (Avalon Hill) which changed my view of what games could be. (Up until then, they were just luck and I wasn't very lucky. Suddenly I saw that games could depend on being smart.)

I love games. All sorts, even athletic ones, although my knees, which got kicked in by a six-foot four Swede exchange student in college, did reduce my on-field life.

So, when I discovered HeroScape, especially in conjunction with my reduced mobile life due to two bouts of cancer (colon...

A Christmas Story

Posted December 19th, 2008 at 10:43 AM by Revdyer
Each year, I write a story for our Christmas Eve service. This is this year's.

Can You See What I See? – Of course not!
A Story for Christmas Eve 2008

There is an ancient and venerable legend that on Christmas Eve, at the very stroke of midnight, the animals around the manger where Jesus was born are given the ability to speak in human tongue. For one hour they are allowed to tell the story from their point of view and then they are silent, at least silent of human speech, until the next December 24th. I don’t know if the tradition of the legend is true, but I invite you to believe that it is for at least one of the animals with whom we, in our imaginations, populate the crèche of Jesus.

Call me Seymour. Actually, you need to say it in donkey. “SeeeeeMour.” It rhymes with Eeyore. And it’s a donkey name, a burro name, the name of an ass. That’s me. And you can well guess that the reason I’m talking to you this evening is because...

Ask Papa-'Scape #6a

Posted September 28th, 2008 at 01:00 PM by Revdyer
Dear Popa-'Scape,
I was politically offended by your answer to the question about Sarah Palin. So, I here and now call you out and ask: "That Joe Biden...is he hot or what?"

Signed - Irate in Iraq

Dear Irate,

A Reminder of What is Valuable

Posted June 13th, 2008 at 09:58 AM by Revdyer
Updated June 13th, 2008 at 10:50 AM by Revdyer
It was sad, disappointing, and sometimes frustrating, yesterday, when this site went down because of the huge demand on the system from the pre-release party.

Yet, sitting through the evening hours and early this morning without HeroScapers.com did serve to remind me of how much I value this site. Some of the things I missed in those few, short, hours:
(1) New information.
(2) Friendly chatter.
(3) Seeing friends.
(4) Seeing great images of the game and figures.
(5) Giving and getting rep.
(6) Meeting or welcoming new people.
(7) Getting PMs and sending replies.

The list could go on and on (but if it did, I'd get a smiley for number 8, right?).

Anyway, thanks to truth, funrun, Xloti, and all the others who worked so hard to restore (and improve) this place for all of us. We missed is while it was down. We'll value it just a little bit more now that it is up and running again.
