The title has to be huge, it's EPIC. It was a celebration of just all around geekery. There were board games, role playing games, video games, and even a Magic The Gathering Draft! This was all held at the AFK Tavern in Everett, WA. There was a ton of great games running. Bruce Cordell, Chris Simms, Logan Bonner, and Greg Bilsland were among a few of the GMs running adventures. Many of which were custom made for this event!
Now I've been working on my own long term Gamma World adventure, but being part of the crew that helped start Epic Game Day I wanted to contribute something myself. Thus began work on my Christmas themed adventure.
The feedback I got was awesome....

When all else fails, go with what you know
I was set. I had my copy of Gamma World (that I used my skillz to acquire super early); just after PAX I would start up my game. I would set it in an apocalyptic Disneyland and it would be AWESOME. Everyone would want to have a guest spot in my game. What could go wrong?
I reached out to some friends that had varied experience in D&D. One player had been playing for years, others had just started, and one had never played at all.
We sat around my kitchen table and I read some things about Gamma World and they began to roll some characters. During the creation I helped those along who needed it. I explained some things about...

"When all else fails, go with what you know"
A little while after getting hired on here at WotC I walked over to Trevor's desk and he was busy rolling up a character.
Mike: What you doing?
Trevor: Rolling up a new Gamma World character, my character died again.
Mike: Oh ____! I've heard about that game! I want in.
Trevor: I'll see what I can do.
I waited... and waited... then one day, my email chimes and I see a meeting invite
Gamma World Resumes! 12:00pm - 2:00pm
I sat there in total enjoyment. I was SO READY for Gamma World. Turns out, I was so NOT READY for Gamma World. Greg Bilsland had a great blog post about the game I was in. Even if due to...

I SWEAR I'll get to Gamma World soon! I promise!
I grew up just outside of Los Angeles. Everywhere was about a 1/2 hour from where I was. Except Disneyland. Even though I was just a few cities away, it always felt like a lifetime to get there.
Both my parents worked a lot and so when we got to go to Disneyland, it was always a huge deal. We'd get there right when it opened, and wouldn't leave until it was closed. Back in the 80's the park closed at 2am on some weeknights. My parents tried for a family trip to Disneyland about once every year, maybe that's why it always felt like it took forever to get there.
Flash Forward to my teenage years. As I got older I realized things were not as far as they seem. I soon learned that Disneyland was "just over the hill" or "just down Harbor" & this...

"My past, made me who I am today."
A Little Background about Me:
Or: How my wife got me the job at Wizards of the Coast
Up until around 2008 I was familiar enough with D&D to be able to fake my way through an improv scene, but if you sat me down to play it, I'd have a little trouble at 1st, but then would be able to catch up rather quickly. I had plenty of friends that were playing 3.5, and had seen plenty of parodies, spoofs, and other online sketches about D&D. Pretty sure I had the gist of it.
