Owlcon 2008: Houston, Texas 7 Years, 2 Months ago  
Owlcon is a rapidly-growing gaming con held each February at Rice University in Houston, this year Feb 8-10. We have RPGs, including a healthy RPGA branch, miniature games, board & card games, and LARPs, plus movies, anime, dealers, and so on.

I'm the convenor of the tabletop RPG section, which includes my own event, a D&D tournament I've been running with a co-GM for a bunch of years, focused on Master Maze. It really brings D&D to life to play with miniatures exploring Master Maze, and we have a great time running players through our dungeons! I'm really looking forward to experimenting with the Cavernous Expansion set to see what kinds of new layouts I can use this year.

We're having GM signups now. For running two sessions, a GM gets free admittance and a t-shirt. And a great time. I'd love to see another GM run some Master Maze!

Pre-reg starts in early December. We're going to have a couple of special guests (last year we had Steve Jackson of Steve Jackson Games, and Steve Long of Hero Games). Our LARP section is so full that our scheduler is already pulling his hair out trying to fit them in. We always have a lot of small-press games, especially in board and card. We're the hometown convention of APE Games, the makers of the Order of the Stick game, so I expect we'll see something extra cool from them.

Dr. Elmo,

I signed up to be a gamemaster today. I can run several different games, modules, fully supported with minis, Df, and MBA. Not to mention an active imagination. I have been DM'ing for almost 20 years and playing for about 25. I have many games written that have been playtested numerous times. I gave all of my contact info and would love to talk to you in the next couple of days. I do have some questions. I look forward to hearing back from you.

Shadox: I've sent a response to your questions, it should be in your h0tm4il account; it's from a gmail address, so you may have to check your junk folder. If you can't find it, I'll re-send it from another account.
