There will never be too many dice! I'll have to pass some to you if I see you at RinCon this weekend. Three day gaming weekend here we come!

Dear Elder Gods, Wil! Release the book for us and we will enjoy it! Your writing is too good to pass up. My bank account is standing by...

Wil, when you roll, it doesn't just some up 20's. The 20's have actually been replaced with the word AWESOME stamped in just for you. AND YOU CRIT CONSTANTLY. This shirt is one of my new favorites of all time. It works not only for the awesomeness of my years of RPG playing, but for the fact that I love drawing maps for our group. There is just something so much fun about creating places just for us that is a lot of fun. Well done, sir! Well done! I can't wait for more shirts to come out and to get this one in the mail. Have an awesome time working on Leverage and we all look forward to the episode!

I'm lucky enough to have two gaming groups right now. One is awesome and plays pretty much everything in character. The ideas and personalities all flow in a fantastic storytelling fashion. Then there is the new group I've been trying out.... The person running the D&D game IS a rules lawyer. So much so that he actually modded the game so it's not Wizards D&D. It's a bizarre 3.75 game of sorts. Of course, since he made everything to be adapted to his liking, he is a massive rules lawyer to the point that it's neither a strategy game or a role playing game. It's a game of rules and situations. At the end of the first game, he asked me if I was actually going to be coming back to play. When I inquired if people normally quit after one game session, he looked sad and said it was known to happen. We still run other games, but I just couldn't get into a non role playing RPG...

Had such and awesome time even though we were performing "Girl U Want" and neither John nor I really knew anything but the refrain. Getting him to run down the stage and have fun and be crazy with both of you was great. Perhaps next time, I'll get to choose a song I kinda know and get even more performance out of it. If you can do Gaga, I can try Devo...

This weekend was nothing short of amazing. I'm still feeling the high of being at a place where everyone can just be themselves and not have to worry about people thinking your crazy when you geek out over the latest tabletop rpg or console game. It's true that all HP and Mana were restored during PHXCC. Thank you, Wil. You met thousands of us, but you really took the time to make it personal for all of us. Not to mention dealing with those of us who came back several times because we forgot all we wanted to say the first time. Your panels were all phenomenal. The articles you read worked very well for the Awesome Hour. If some of us are lucky, maybe we can have you back at RinCon this year. Thank you again for all your encouragement and inspiration.

It's all good, Wil! I just donated a couple of times in response to your tweets about needing beer money. I'm always willing to donate to art, awesomeness and beer.

THAT was a very filling burrito. This weekend is going to be an epicly outstanding time! I can't wait to see The Guild panel. I've brought my mother-in-law into watching The Guild and she's as entranced by it as I am and she's no where near being a gamer. Kudos to Felicia and you! The bell never gets old or cheapened. I don't know how, it just doesn't. I was slightly sad to not hear my name at the end, but I imagine you have A METRIC TON of people who love donating what they can to feed the burrito in all its awesomeness. See you in Phoenix!

This weekend will be as epic as everything you do Wil. You'll always have enough energy to do everything you want and everything you think will be awesome to do. The people who support you and the people you meet-especially at things like cons- will get excited and it'll help give you a boost of energy to make more awesome things. I wish I was going to be able to stay to get The Recalibration of Things What Are Epic paper, but my baby sitter will only be availible through Saturday day. Can't wait for Rock Band though!
