Welcome to the AdeptiCon 2011 Development Blog! This site will serve as a means to disseminate information regarding the development and planning of the convention as it enters its ninth year. Additionally, this site will allow us to discuss things such as event history, theory and the convention’s take on certain ‘hot button’ issues that might not truly be considered news in relation to the convention proper. Much of what is to follow has been in the works for many months and is the accumulation of hundreds of constructive emails, adaptations in game systems, conversations with other event organizers and most importantly attendee feedback.
While the contents of this site and the ideas of adaptation are nothing new for the organizers of AdeptiCon, we felt it would be a great way to reach out the community at large and move beyond the point of ideas being resigned to emails, planning meetings, buried in forums or lost in comment systems.
There has been a ton of great discussion out there lately concerning the nature of certain game systems, the structure of events and the validity of tournament formats. Over the past few years we have also seen the independent scene explode with a number of fantastic new events. We find all of this incredibly exciting and invigorating for both the community and AdeptiCon. As Archibald Tuttle so eloquently put it, "Listen, kid, we're all in it together".
Up Next: Putting the Champion Back in Championships!
Onwards and upwards!
See you in April!
