GenCon: The big, obvious choice. But I’m not sure how much there would be for someone like me who doesn’t play 4E or Pathfinder. I know there’s the OSR Booth in the dealers’ room (anyone know how to get hold of those guys), but is there anything else for me?
North Texas RPG Con: Lots of OSR goodness to be found here, but I wonder if it’s a little too small to warrant schlepping halfway across the country for?
GaryCon: Another obvious choice, but also another small one. It’s also coming up quickly, so I’d need to commit soon.
Any advice on choosing from folks who’ve been at one or more of these cons recently, or other conventions I’ve missed? I didn’t include Origins purposefully; I’m a little more focused on RPGs at the moment than wargames (for obvious reasons). Thanks in advance!
Of course, I could just go to Shore Leave this year. Haven’t been there in years, and it would do my old Trekker’s heart good to see it again, and that’s something the family would want to come for, too.
