Virtual GenCon Part 3 of ? (possibly my last post before GenCon ends)

I’m updating my initial post to put everything in one place, so you may already be visiting some of these sites.

Here’s a brief list of some places you can check out to keep up with all the fun:

Twitter:

The hashtag #gencon should provide plenty of information. But here is a short list of folks who’ll be tweeting from the convention.

E. Foley aka Geek’s Dream Girl of geeksdreamgirl.com

Sages of RPG of Sages of RPG.com

@WilW aka Wil Wheaton is visiting GenCon again this year, and will almost certainly be sharing his experience online.

@Wizards_DnD the official Wizards of the Coast Twitter feed.

@GenCon : The official convention feed.

Photos:

Lots of folks will be posting photos, and wihle some of them will show up in Twitter feeds, other people use Flickr. Here’s a link straight to a GenCon search of Flickr, sorted so the most recent pics appear first.

Scotty’s Brewhouse: This bar/restaurant really gets into the spirit of GenCon. They give away (sell?) dice, and they’ve posted a bunch of pictures on their Facebook page. In fact, if someone wants to send me one of those dice, I’d be most grateful.

Podcasts:

This Just In From GenCon: 2 podcasts a day, straight from GenCon. They’ve posted a few creator interviews in the days leading up to GenCon that are worth a listen as well!

Jeff of The Tome Show shared an audio recording of the Wizards of the Coast GenCon Keynote, and will be posting additional podcasts from the convention.

UnderDiscussion: The Undergopher Podcast: Has already posted two episodes live from Inidianapolis.

Wizards of the Coast:

As a Dungeons and Dragons player, of course my focus is on D&D coverage. Wizards of the Coast did a livestream of their keynote address. You can find audio on The Tome Show link in the podcast section, and video here.

There’s also an additional link to planned WOTC video and photo coverage at the bottom of that page.
