DaveCon has univited Ernie Gygax as a special guest. The first DaveCon took place earlier this year and was organized by Victor Dorso who has announced plans for a second DaveCon in April next year. Recently, several gaming conventions, including DaveCon recieved criticism for associating themselves with the son of Gary Gygax due to various controversies other sites than this one has covered in detail.
Personally, I would rather keep this blog focused on other issues connected to Dave Arneson's legacy and less about drama, but I hope that with this decision, fans of gaming will come out to support DaveCon.

Do we know if Ernie has brought his unpopular views into his gaming career and conventions or has he kept them separate and behaved well at these gatherings?ReplyDelete
From what I understand, the controversy is more related to Ernie's business decisions than his personal views. But the details of these issues are outside the scope of this blog.Delete
