One response to “ConFusion 2015”

  1. It’s so cool to know that I’m likely just off-screen in some of those DnD photos. Fittingly so, I have no place in the frame, but the fact that I was in that place, at that time, brings me great pleasure still.

    I just wish I’d been able to hear a bit better. 😉

    FYI, I’d highly recommend ConFusion to anyone able to attend. Not as fancy or high fallutin’ as other cons maybe, but that’s the chief part of its charm.
