Gen Con returns to Indianapolis on August 16-19, and the Fits Society's complete Gen Con gaming schedule is to be released soon here at ISD.
We anticipate daily gaming slots at 9 am, 12 noon, and 5 pm. George Henion and Indy's Rick Lacy are expected to be among the GM's running scenarios throughout the week.
ISD will once again carry complete coverage of Gen Con, including:
- Photos of all Dawn Patrol and Fight in the Skies events
- Video coverage of special DP events on Indy Squadron TV
- Coverage of Rick Lacy's Fits scenarios
- Special coverage of oddities such as the costume march, etc., as we have in the past
A major announcement regarding the future of D&D, the original role playing game, is expected. A recent Gen Con press release called the conference "an unprecedented look into the future of Dungeons & Dragons, including the evolution of the game, the re-birth of a fantasy setting and the next generation of art."
Broader still is the addition of Wil Wheaton to the guest list this year. Wheaton is best known to gamers as Wesley Crusher, the doctor's son on Star Trek: The Next Generation. Wheaton will be signing autographs for three days during the con.
