With Marian moving to Gen Con Corporate, her job precludes her from moderating the forums as she did in the past, so I was chosen to take over the major moderation duties, but don’t worry, Marian will still be keeping her hand in.
I’ve been a Captain for Gen Con for the past 12 years, in charge of the Union Station for the last 8 years, so if you’ve been down to the Station, you’ve probably seen me – the long-haired, grey-bearded guy at the front desk. I’m a game designer, editor, and layout guy, half-owner of Pulp Action Library and shareholder in DunDraCon, a California games convention. I live in the Sierra foothills of California, near Yosemite; so remote, we don’t even get mail service to the house.
I’m happy to be working with Gen Con to make these the best darn forums for the Best Four Days in Gaming!

P.S. Am I the only one who is curious about "Gen Con Corporate"? Are people walking around in suits, yet wearing wizard hats?
Do they roll for initiative at business meetings to determine who speaks first?
Instead of personnel files lies they have employee character sheets?
1. No suits, occasional wizard hats, leather bracers of protection +1 vs papercuts.
2. That's a really good idea actually. We usually just play Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock.
3. Why not both?

Welcome Roderick. Glad you are here and appreciate your work my friend!
Hey Roderick! Thank you in advance for keeping all of us hooligans in check. Random question: do you know what happened to the forums from past years? In other words, anything before 2016? I guess I'm just feeling nostalgic and I was wondering if my old posts were still active. I'm assuming that they got deleted or archived when Marian got her new job but I wanted to check either way.
I'll check, but I'm guessing they went the way of the dodo when the forums moved here.
Eh, I won't lose any sleep if they did. Thanks for checking though man!
I'm told that they are "archived" in a dank, dark corner of the GC offices. Sounds like the Internet Archive is the way to go.
Yes I do remember your epic beard. Such as it is the envy of dwarves everywhere. Will you still be at the union station this year?
As far as I know. I've never been stationed in the ICC - I think "they" want to keep me as far away from the main crowds as possible.
