It was another terrific weekend of swords, sorcery, and self-resolve as the heroes of GHR marched through the obstacles and overcame the hurdles of the premieres of BFGcon.
Happy Growfest 618 Everyone!
The Growfest Festival of Greyhawk represents spring and the start of the growing season with celebrations and ceremonies. The weather is usually blustery, with cool sunny days alternating with heavy rain. Merchant activity is high, as the first caravans of the year set out at this time on the first day of good weather, providing the roads are in a fair state. At night on Oerth, Celene shows as full while Luna is waxing. The warmth of the sun and increasing-longer days sees to put everyone in good spirits.
This time of growth and renewal on Earth found Greyhawk Reborn also in good spirits and health at BFGcon in Frederick, MD this past weekend. It was another terrific weekend of swords, sorcery, and self-resolve as the heroes of GHR marched through the obstacles and overcame the hurdles of the premieres of BFGcon. The admins and author/DMs of Greyhawk Reborn greatly enjoyed judging and playing with all our familiar faces, and really loved meeting and gaming with our new players! We ended up running 33 tables of Greyhawk Reborn adventures over the slots of BFGcon!
I’d like to take a moment to thank the people who helped make Greyhawk Reborn at BFGcon a great success!
First, every person who sat and played at our GHR tables. We consider Greyhawk Reborn a shared story-telling experience between our DM/authors and our players, and that was certainly evident this weekend. Dice were thrown, adversaries overcome and innocents were saved. Lots of fun was had, and lots of laughter ensued. That is our first priority, everyone having fun. Your spare time is very valuable, and we thank you for choosing to spend some of your valuable time with our campaign.
The biggest thank you to our GMs for BFGcon: admins Jay Stypinski, Samantha Keller, Anthony Keller, Matt Dunn, & Ben Eastman, and author/DMs Ninja Sams, Marc Berlove, David O’Connor, Steve Mumford, Matt Tyler, Michael Lawrence, Benson Sherman, & Gary Allison. Thank you so much for all your work creating stories, writing the tales and then running them at BFGcon! You folks are the reason for the player’s enjoyment! Our campaign is dependent upon the quality of our judges, and our repeat play and continued growth show how good you guys are. I’ll put you folks up against any other campaign out there!
A big thank you to Eli, Heather, and the rest of the BFGcon staff. You folks are friendly, helpful and adaptable. You should be very proud of what you are creating! It was the finest 1st-year con I’ve ever attended! The venue was wonderful! Hats off to your folks!
