GnomeCon

Thanks to a chance meeting at Scarab, Wintertree has gotten space at GnomeCon at the last minute. They say it’s “funky” (that was really on the PayPal invoice!) so I’m not 100% sure what to expect, but so long as it’s got power and isn’t raining indoors (like one memorable GenCon) it’s all good.

At Scarab, after talking to that GnomeCon person, I wrote up a quick garden gnomes table. This was just what I came up with off the top of my head between customers at a convention; I’m sure you can expand the gnumber of gnome options quite a lot. (gnote on the items: the 2017 GnomeCon graphic is a gnome holding a Pokeball)

I expanded the gnomes table a bit this morning, so I edited this. post Here’s the updated gnome table:

Unfortunately this version of the table requires the full TableMaster; I’ve mislaid the one that worked with the demo. (it’s probably on the convention laptop) I’ll post that, or just reconstruct it, as soon as I can find it.
