Gen Con 2012 Hotel Update 2–Downtown Rooms Still Available

Shock! After years of logging in and attacking the housing portal at the moment it goes live to get a decent hotel room, this year was totally different. There are still rooms available at downtown hotels 8 hours after hotel registration began! This is unprecedented in my experience attending Gen Con. So, if you still […]

A Gencon 2012 Hotel Near-Miss

Oops. I forgot today was the Gencon 2012 hotel registration day and logged in an hour late.

Metamorphosis Alpha on Lulu.com with Free Shipping

Long have I desired a copy of “Metamorphosis Alpha” by James M. Ward for my bookshelf, but I am unwilling to pay collector prices.

For the past few months, we here at DEM have been developing an adaptation for Amethyst using the Pathfinder rule setting, called Renaissance. This adaptation is not an update of our original […]

Livingdice Goes Black Tommorow to Protest SOPA

I may not have much traffic relative to Google and Wikipedia, but I do enjoy the right to publish my rantings freely.  That said, the Stop Online Piracy Act is a pathetic attempt by large media companies to control the Internet using Gestapo-like tactics. By the way, I do not use the Nazi analogy lightly. […]

GAMA Trade Show 2012 Hotel Alert

GAMA Trade Show 2012 Hotel Alert

Update: I just checked and the Bally’s site is now showing the correct pricing for GTS 2012. All appears to be well.   I just booked my flight and hotel for the GAMA Trade Show 2012 and noticed something odd. Assuming you are staying at the site of the convention (Bally’s), you can use the […]
