So I'm heading to Gencon next week for my favorite four days of gaming! I'll be seeing the other RPG bloggers, checking out WOTC's new stuff, talking to their designers and developers, and rolling a hell of a lot of dice.
For those who care, here's my current schedule. I tend to play things by ear, knowing that the best schedule works out until the minute you show up at the conference, so I don't know if I'll be hitting all of these events or not.
Anyway, here's my schedule thus far:

I don't know if I'll end up DMing any games or not, but I put together a little DM Kit anyway. I wanted this to be as lightweight as possible, since I'm flying, so here's what I ended up with:
I'm not going to bother bringing any books at this point. With the large number of updates, the books aren't exactly up to date and most people I'll play with will know the rules anyway.
If you're heading to Gencon and want to say hi, keep an eye on my Twitter feed to see where I'm at.
