I had the opportunity to go for 1 day. And I hit the Dealer room, not expecting to see much. But I did find it kind of interesting:

There were 3 Vendors of local Game Companies: Black Diamond Games, EndGame of Oakland, and some guy who didn't want to spend money on a banner from Santa Cruz.

There was also Flying Buffalo, Chessex, and Hero Games.

Not one Palladium Product. In fact, the guy at Santa Cruz didn't even know Palladium made a 2nd Edition of Robotech. And EndGame stated they will never carry Palladium product (probably a personal bias, I didn't get in it with him)

It is quite sad, usually the dealer room is packed with more RPG stuff. But this was small and sad. Even though it was a great crowd of players. Lots of Wargaming

To put this in perspective, DunDraCon is the West Coast's longest running RPG convention (that I know of), running continuously over 37 years.

And the hotel - continuously sells out, and so does its sister hotels.

I'm confused about the Endgame comment. Could we get some clarity on that one?

How DundraCon this year? How many PB games went off?

I talked to one of the guys from EndGame - I asked if he had any Palladium Books, he looked a little shocked. Pointed to his RPG section. He stated something like, this is what we brought, and was very adamant they didn't carry Palladium products.

As I said - I didn't get into it, and it was a 10 second conversation.

As for any PB games run this year - I didn't see one. There might have been a pickup game or two. But I was there for 1 day, and stuck in a 12 hour crappy D&D3.5 game with a newbie GM who didn't provide any characters.
