Published on August 11, 2008 By CariElf In Game Developers

So it's official, I'm a Guest at Dragon*Con 2008!  I don't think that I mentioned that before, although I've known that I would be a Guest since about a week after I posted the first article mentioning Dragon*Con.  I have been waiting to see what panels I'd end up doing, because they hadn't gotten back to me at all.  I finally got an e-mail from the programming comittee with my tentative schedule today (they may still make minor changes to the schedule). 

So here's my tentative schedule:

Title: Postmortem on Twilight of the Arnor

If there are other game industry panels at other times I may crash those as well, or hide in the audience, depending on the topic.

Would have liked to come but it's some too many 1,000s of km away ...

Did someone gets some shots of the  Elf there ?

I wish I could've attended the gaming job one.
