Winter Fantasy 2014

A Frostbolt of Fun Let me just start off by saying that Winter Fantasy is a fantastic convention, probably my favorite. The first time I attended Winter Fantasy it was still called The Dungeons and Dragons Experience, aka DDXP. DDXP had some pretty awesome seminars, games being played all weekend, and so many great people to interact with. It still, to this day, is the only show where you can just sit down next to a game designer and...
