Brand and I have had our hotel booked since February, and although the reasons that we were planning on going have changed (Suryamaya will not be released but Crime and Punishment came into being and will) we were both totally hyped about going. Since Jonathan asked what my plans were around boothing it, I've been a flurry of emails with what seemed like the whole world about the ins, outs and upside downs about Gencon distributing.
I'd like to thank Jonathan Walton, Ben Lehman, Emily Care Boss, Ron Edwards, Luke Crane and Brennan Taylor for all of their help, advice and encouragement over the last week. It's made me very excited about the release of Crime & Punishment, and very happy about the coming of Gencon.
Which is why this is so dissappointing. :(
I regret to say that Brand and I will not be able to go to Gencon this year. Life has taken a strange and wonderful turn and we will likely not even be in the country at that time. I can't really discuss the details of what's going on as of yet, but suffice to say, our plans for Gencon have been well, and truely scratched.
That said, I still plan to release Crime and Punishment in time for Gencon, and hope to have it distributed in my absence, though I haven't figured that one out quite yet.
And for all those folks that Brand and I promised games and drinks and strange times to? Well, you'll have to go back next year to collect, because we will be there with bells on.
