I'm getting pumped for ConQuest Vegas! It's coming up March 19th-21st. It'll be the first time I've been to this convention. It's a wargaming and strategy convention, so I think DDM will fit right in. They are letting me run a Dungeon Delve and an Arena Skirmish Tournament at the convention. I've never been the host of a game at a convention before, only a player, so this will be an education :). I'm a bit nervous about this but at the same time really excited! I love playing D&D and DDM so I think my enthusiasm for the game and for meeting people will carry me through.
I hope that lots of people who subscribe to the Wizards Community will be there and will check out my booth. The Dungeon Delve on Friday is a pretty free form, jump in any time type of game, so if you don't...

We were so impressed with the facility and great people at the Little Shop of Magic on Flamingo and Durango, that we're coming back! We met a lot of great people at the Shop who wanted to play but were already scheduled to play something else. So, hopefully, they can all play on Sunday the 13th. I hope that lots of Vegas area folks here on Wizards Community can come too. Clark County DDM Guild will be demo-ing and playing skirmishes in the afternoon. This time, there will be prizes for winners of skirmishes! We'll give out prizes after each round of skirmishes, so don't worry if you can't stay until 8 pm. We'll also do a bit of mini trading if anyone wants to. Joining CCDDM is free though donations of money, gaming gear for guild use, loaning of minis to those who don't bring any etc. are...

In addition to skirmishes and dungeon delves, there are also mini scenarios that I have recently found that are written especially for DDM 2.0! They use the same minis and maps that other DDM 2.0 games use but clever and imaginative folks have written up some really interesting looking scenarios for them that make a nice bridge between the more traditional D&D quests and campaigns and DDM 2.0. I'll bring print outs of these scenarios with me to events in case anyone would like to try them out. You can also see them on the wiki for DDM. They are actual quests with details and everything, yet they are still much shorter than a lot of D&D campaigns are.

I posted a few small and unofficial maps that can be modified to work for skirmishes and arena games. I recommend getting maps from D&D Insider's website at www.wizards.com and from the guild at ddmguild.com, but these are fun for informal games as well. They were made by fellow D&D fans and are not copywrited, so you can modify them at will. I add victory areas, start areas and Bonus Attack areas to them for unofficial DDM games.
