GENCON Facebook Announcement 2 months 6 days ago #1

All,

GENCON just posted this on Facebook, I'm posting it here as an FYI:

Gen Con
4 mins ·
While we evaluate safety measures related to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, both the release of the event catalog and the opening of event registration will be delayed. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time. We will update our community with the measures we are taking to keep everyone safe and healthy in the coming weeks.

I was expecting it and pretty glad to see the announcement, it would be a pain for both attendees and GenCon to go through the entire process of event registration, queuing online for event tickets and then the refund process if it doesn't happen. At least this way people won't need to do anything unless and until it's confirmed that the convention will be happening.

Sadly at this point I'm pinning my hopes on 2021 rather than 2020 since all the other large events I'd normally attend are looking very unlikely to happen (e.g. UK Games Expo is now cancelled, Essen now falls under a lockdown period in Germany) and it's hard to expect GenCon to be the exception :(
I play Rogue. Occasionally I even play Rogue well.

No change to the mailing date of badges and tickets, no change to the refund date, and no change in the hotel reservation transfer dates commensurate with the delay in releasing the event catalog and event registration.

GenCon is happening. Even if I have to arrange it myself. Now... I wonder if I can cram 70,000+ people into my home and still have enough room for 2 full TD Adventures and a massive 1st Ed D&D RPG playing area...

Only if you have room for three dungeons
D&D teaches all the important lessons in life - the low blow, the cheap shot, the back stab, the double cross. - Jerry Marsischky

Let them trap us. We have our swords. - Elric of Melnibone.

You try to get them to play the game, but all they want to do is play the rules. - Ardak Kumerian

I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend - Faramir

Clearly, we'll just have to get rid of the 1st Ed area in order to fit in the third dungeon.

Well in my game, we tend to burn the one that everyone shuns as a witch or heretic. It's that one that usually is the hidden monster stirring up dissent among the villagers for his own evil pleasure. But Nietzsche probably said it best "Beware that, when fighting monsters, you yourself do not become a monster... for when you gaze long into the abyss. The abyss gazes also into you". Sorry to say, oh he who is shunned, you've become the monster of this story. True Dungeon is a bad place to be the monster, for here there be slayers....

I know GC will make the best decision it can working with health experts and Indiana public officials. I know there is a high chance GC won't happen, but I remain hopeful.
