" Cigaretrøg der stadig brænder hårdt i øjenkrogene efter at have forladt den spritbule som netop forsynede en med det kvantum alkohol, der skal dæmpe gårsdagens dårlige smag. En ny dag, en ny vandring gennem byens asfaltboulevarder. Byen, stedet hvor der leves, stedet hvor man ser ansigter, alle ansigter en deroppe nu engang har forsynet mennesket med. Hvem fanden der end gjorde det, har ikke tænkt sig om - noget må være gået galt i processen. Strisserne der opfører sig som enerådige forbryderkonger, kvinder der er parate til at æde ens sjæl for de penge, man flyder på. Affald af enhver art... Dette er byen - min by - der hvor jeg lever og overlever. "

April 26, 2000: Fastaval, Part 2
The con is over, and it ended with a bang. Saturday we had an excellent panel discussion which started out as "What's the difference in gaming styles between Europe and the U.S.?" and evolved into a freewheeling discussion of the nature of the roleplaying community as a whole, and the ways that a creator could contribute. Verrrrrry interesting!
Sunday night was the banquet, and quite a banquet it was - with two bands, and a third one at the huge bar tent in the courtyard of the school which was hosting the convention. (Bar tent? At a school? You bet.)
There were more than 300 people at the banquet, and the energy level was as high as I have ever seen at a convention. The bands were great (the first one, a cover band with some really great, weird arrangements, could fill any club on 6th Street in Austin). We not only had people dancing, we had people pogoing and airplaning . . .
And, not to lose sight of the original goal, we had standing ovations for the winners of the various GMing and service awards. The energy and enthusiasm of the fans here is fantastic. As a matter of fact, if Danish gamers have a fault, it's that they are too modest. I was flat-out accused once of being "political" for saying this was a great convention . . . the fellow seemed certain that cons just had to be better in America. And several people gave me variations on the "But seriously, what do you think?" line. I think they don't know what they've got here . . .
Today is a quiet day, recovering from the fun and reading over some more of the stack of manuscripts we brought along. Tomorrow, it's off to Legoland.
