Well, it has sounded like Moses has something lined up, so i think either way it will be a go. The exact nature may be up for grabs, but it sounds like something will get lined up.

Lets put it this way. It is enough of a green light to give traveling plans a go. :D

Now bring me that horizon!...and a new house loan. ;)

Gen Con Indy 2008 Announces Wizards of the Coast as a Co-Sponsor
The Best Four Days in Gaming Never Looked Better

INDIANAPOLIS (May 19, 2008) - Gen Con is pleased to announce that once again Wizards of the Coast, Inc., will be a co-sponsor of Gen Con Indy. Fans of all ages come to Gen Con each year to see and experience the latest in analog and digital gaming, and Wizards’ participation is a highlight for many fans. This year, Wizards of the Coast will be showing off their latest offerings, including the release of Dungeons & Dragons® 4th Edition.

“We are so pleased to have Wizards of the Coast once again be a sponsor of Gen Con. Its long history with the show, as well as the popularity of its products makes it an integral part of the entire Gen Con experience,” said Adrian Swartout , president of Gen Con.

At Gen Con this year, Wizards of the Coast will be celebrating the newly released D&D® 4th Edition by debuting the new Living Forgotten Realms® campaign as well as 20 years of the Legend of Drizzt™. New York Times best-selling author R.A. Salvatore will be signing sample chapters of The Pirate King, the second book in the Transitions trilogy and sample chapters of The Stowaway, co-authored with his son Geno Salvatore.

Gen Con will be held at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis from August 14 through 17. Celebrating its 41st year and going strong, Gen Con is no ordinary convention. Attendees do everything from browsing the aisles of the exhibit hall packed with over 300 booths to taking part in any number of the 5,000 gaming events happening 24 hours a day over the four days. Gaming activities range from interactive game play and computer gaming to big money hobby-related tournaments.
