Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Impromptu D&D Panel

I know that Jerry already addressed it in his main blog post from Monday, but I was in the D&D panel room... When Khoo walked in and asked us if it was OK if Mike came in and did a Q&A about D&D with us instead of the video since apparently the video was lost or the people didn't show up... I think the room was awestruck (would it be ok? OF FUCKING COURSE IT'S OK, ARE YOU INSANE???). The content of the Q&A was fantastic, and kudos to Mike for that. That said, I think it was most impressive that it happened at all. Everyone knows how busy all the PA folks get from Khoo to Jerry to Mike to the rest of the crew, and to just stop all of it and say "hey you guys waited in line to talk about D&D, we're going to give you a goddamned D&D panel come hell or high water" just goes to show how wonderful PAX is and how much these folks at PA do for all of us.

I was also Proudmax to be a PA fan and reader right then (since 2001), and it cemented to me that as long as PAX East exists, I'm never going to miss one.

    I remember a few years back Mike/Gabe talked about his anxiety issues (http://www.penny-arcade.com/2003/06/04/#1058467801 / second Gabe blog)... to see him talking in front of thousands of people at a time, and even giving impromptu panels was sort of extra inspiring to me as a fan.

    My mouth hit the floor when I heard about this on Sunday. It shows just how great Tycho & Gabe are & what they think of their fans.

    That's pretty much exactly what I was thinking. It was exactly like in the comic, lol "what, he's doing what? was that on the schedule?" "no, he's just DOING it"... so awesome. Maybe I'm making too much of it... I've always been a fan, but that was just so fantastic to me. Like you said, inspiring.
