My son and I went to Origins today. In the morning, I visited one of my fraternity brothers who was running crime/mystery game, and the Sparks room was right beside it. I peaked my head in and there were a couple tables of adventures going on.

garhkal, if you were there, I was the fat guy wearing the Spock t-shirt and holding the hand of an adorable little blond boy.

Did you run any adventures, or did you just play this year?

Did you guys run into Timothy Zahn? I've seen pictures of him playing X-Wing floating around.

Didn't see him poke his head in this year. Though in the past few years, our group has hosted a game for Mr Zahn, Mr Stackpole AND mr Allston.

Whoa whoa whoa. Timothy Zahn was there?!

Probably good that I didn't know. I'd have been too tempted to go all disgruntled fanboy on him for creating Mara Sue Jade. Cool

I can't remember the year, but yes. Though iirc it was at a gencon, not origins.

Oooh. I thought Zahn was at Origins this year.

So you ran or played in adventures with those SW authors? Cool.

Nope. Never got the chance. The first time, i didn't even hear about it going on till the session afterwards (though i did wonder why one of our DM's was not there in the room for his slot). The 2nd time, i was in the room, had my table for gming set up, and was already 10 min into a game, when one of the other GM's again got the call up to go with these "People' and Allston was standing outside with his 2 bodyguards.
Last time iirc it was Stackpole, but it was one of the 2 Gencon's i missed due to being on deployment.

So it has happened for those in our group, but unfortunately i never got the chance to game with them. Sucks as i would have loved to game with ANY of the 3.
