Earlier this spring, I sent a pitch about a presentation on RPG Superstar and RPG design to the organizers of Ropecon (Finland's biggest RPG convention). Today they sent me their approval.
I hope to meet many people there who are interested in the contest and RPG design. Two years ago when I gave a presentation about magic items and RPG Superstar, there were probably about 20 people in the audience. One of them made the top 32 after that. Twice. :-)
